My Summer So Far...

What a fun and inspiring summer I've had! In June, I traveled to Massachusetts to the Autism Treatment Center of America to learn another approach to helping my son with autism. It was a great experience and I made lots of new friends. One of those new friends lives just down the road from me! It's always so much fun to meet new people and build relationships, and this time has been double the fun because my new friend decided to embrace Stella & Dot's fab & flex Stylist opportunity and is now the newest member of my Joyful Gems team! So June = new friends, new hope for my boy, and new opportunities for a new family. Sharing is caring! Oh, and I'm still looking for a few local volunteers to do this new play therapy with my son. July was amazing, too! I traveled to Orlando for our national convention, Hoopla, and 3 days of much needed adult time! SO. MUCH. FUN. We danced, we bonded, we made more new friends! But it's back to life, back to re-al-ity. ;) I'm excited to offer several weekend shows and even some weekday events this month. Seeing women take a quick break from their hectic lives to enjoy each others company, try on jewelry and accessories, get styled by friends, and feel beautiful is an amazing job perk for me! I love being surrounded by other smart, strong, cool, and JOYFUL women.

Celebs are still coveting all things Stella & Dot!

I love our Cassady necklace on Natalie Morales! She's a big fan of S&D, and we always love her great style. Cassady can go casual or fancy - I'm dying to try her over a jumpsuit! Just gotta get the jumpsuit ;) Cassady is definitely one of my MUST-HAVES for fall! http://bit.ly/1pAMlMp

Our partnership with Every Mother Counts

Christy Turlington Burns sat down with our CEO, Jessica Herrin, and told us all about her organization Every Mother Counts. They have an incredible mission to bring maternal safety programs to towns and villages in need and help women deliver babies safely. She told us that EVERY 2 MINUTES, A WOMAN DIES IN CHILDBIRTH in the world. Every 2 minutes! 98% of these deaths would be preventable with access to prenatal care and a skilled birth attendant. Two women die every day in the US alone. I am SO EXCITED about this partnership! As an adoptive mom, I had no idea how many women experienced scary and often dangerous complications in their journeys to motherhood. In the last two weeks, Stella & Dot has sold over 15,000 Enlighten bracelets - of which 100% of net proceeds go to Every Mother Counts - enough to send 30 students through a year long midwifery school!

Street chic is so chic! I'm loving this look with so many of my new favorites! The Gold Sutton necklace is the newest of our classic wear-5-ways necklace that can truly be worn so many additional ways! Orbit Hoops are a must in gold and silver, and never leave home without a ring and a couple bracelets! I don't anyway ;) Check out a few other ways to style the Sutton:

Rose gold is back by popular demand! We're seeing so many beautiful blush tones for fall and I'm really excited about it. I'm usually a neutral and bold color kind of girl, but I think these blush tones are so pretty! Ladylike, demur glam is in! What do you think about these sweet pairings?

Get that golden glow with metallics and mint. These styles are bold and beautiful, just like the blush tones, and really playful.

jessica herrin inspires me

Stella & Dot's CEO Jessica Herrin is intelligent, beautiful, confident, and positive. What's not to love? She created Stella & Dot not because she just loved the idea of another fashion company, but because she wanted to help women. She wanted to change the conversation about women and the workplace. I think she's doing it. We're all doing it. Stella & Dot isn't just a company, it's a lifestyle - one I am so thankful for. It also feeds my need for fashion & style! If our jewelry and bags just aren't your cup of tea, I highly recommend you check out our sister brands launching soon. There's no reason you shouldn't have the opportunity to LOVE & OWN your life, too! www.keep-collective.com and www.myeverskincare.com
