a74e691e468fa3a0d9fea9ad5c6ce6a2

When you’re shopping, you’re probably not thinking about donating to charity or giving back. Instead, you’re focusing on that cute pair of shoes or that new top you really want. I shop a decent amount so I don’t want anyone to feel guilty for shopping. BUT you can actually help people while you’re buying fun things for yourself.

I recently donated a bunch of my clothes that I hadn’t been wearing and wondered what else I could do to help other people with my wardrobe. If you want to save the world and look stylish at the same time, here are some cool brands that give back:

It’s a universal truth that vacations are absolutely necessary (go ahead, tell me I’m wrong). Also a truth: Sometimes schedules just don’t align, friends have other plans or don’t have the money to pick up and go, and you’re left with two choices—stay home or go it alone. I’m a huge fan of traveling by yourself—you’re not beholden to your friend’s obnoxious desire to visit every single museum within city limits, and you can eat where you want, stay where you want, and take as many selfies as you want, free of judgment or time constraints.
