Join me for Girls’ Night Out at Belk/Riverchase!

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

Are you ready for a Girls’ Night Out?  I know I am!  Join me at Belk/Riverchase Galleria on Thursday, October 8 from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., where I will be sharing the best of fall fashion! We’ll be there to help you put together the perfect fall outfit, whether that’s styling a cape for date night, rocking a bootie to gameday or finding the perfect outfit for any other occasion this season!

Whether you’re looking to try fringe, plaid or just updating your look in terms of color or texture, we’ve got you covered! I’m trying something new: I’m loving Kiind Of’s dark floral “Irene” top with the “Sexy Skinny Jean” and  indigo rd.’s suede “Maddox” ankle bootie — and encourage you to embrace the unexpected this season. (The boots are so cute that someone offered to buy them off my feet last week!) Finish the look with Essie’s “Wicked” nail lacquer!

Swing by the soiree for light bites, music and 20% off with limited exclusions! Can’t make it to the Riverchase store? Girls’ Night Out will also be held at the Summit location!

See you there!

Xo, Alexis

In which I meet a Maasai chieftain + a giveaway!

I have had so many amazing experiences as a blogger, but attending the Pikolinos launch at Belk a few weeks ago is one I will never forget. If you’re not familiar with the brand, it is a line of beautifully made shoes, jewelry and accessories featuring Spanish leather and intricate beading created by Maasai women, who also receive the profits.

The Maasai Project, as it is called, gives the women a creative space as well as economic freedom. They can then educate themselves and their families…and that is a cause that really spoke to me.

I had the opportunity to see pieces from the partnership at the Summit store, and from the superb leather to the detailed beadwork, these pieces are so, so beautiful. I also had the pleasure of meeting William Kikanae Ole Pere, the tribe’s chief! He is so gracious and so warm, and his vision for empowering women has changed the lives of so many women and girls – and benefited his community as a whole.

Enjoy my highlight reel! You can shop Pikolinos’ Maasai Collection by clicking HERE and HERE.

I was gifted with a beautiful necklace from The Maasai Project and I’m sharing a little of the love with ONE lucky reader! Post “Pick Me 4 Pikolinos!” in the comments for your chance at winning a hand-beaded bracelet. ONE winner will be chosen at random this Friday!

Chief William even taught me a little of his language, Maa, and I close with this:

Ashe (“Thank you”) for reading!
