I am SO impressed with this org and their FABULOUS menswear!!!  It is not everyday that you come across an organization like this one.  From their apparel to social activism, Apolis is doing everything with excellence.  They promote their concept of being a global citizen and encourage everyone to get involved!  Contributing to this idea through the creation of well-made, stylish menswear Apolis offers lasting jobs for some of the world’s most vulnerable in a completely fair environment.  I’ve featured my favorite piece in the current collection, the Waxed Canvas Anorak which is not only super sharp and classy but also seriously durable and practical for a variety of weather conditions.  From ties to tees Apolis doesn’t have a shortage of amazing menswear pieces. And their website is full of inspiring stories and great resources on how to get involved in stopping injustice.  Another super rad thing about Apolis is their featured photostory’s.  For each item they make they share a story to go along with it like this one!  My hubby is definitely going to be sporting some Apolis wear in the near future! :)

There is something so beautiful about wearing minimal make-up. These photos above portray natural beauty with-out having to enhance the cheek bones with bronzer and bright pink blush. The foundation matches their exact skin tone and the eye make-up consist of subtile shades of nudes and browns. Minimalism and simplicity is everything this Fall, even down to the fingers and toes. Nude nail polish looks so graceful and clean! I have a feeling we will be seeing a lot of these gorgeous looks on the runway this year!

Here are some of my favorite maxi skirts and 4 fabulous ways to style them!

1. Dusklight Skirt by Madewell This look is super clean and classic. The skirt is semi high waisted and  doesn’t have too much flow to it.  Pair with a chunky belt and throw your hair in a low, messy bun to get that chic-put together feel. 2.  Cascade Convertible Skirt by Free People Total bohemian (Duh, its FP! :)  The skirt is worn lower around the waist and paired with a blousey, loose fitting top making the outfit casual and laid back.  (P.S. I have this skirt in white and it really is as amazing as it looks.  You can wear it several different ways and the cut of the skirt just flows so beautifully!)  3.  Navy Long Skirt by ZARA Uh I love this skirt!  So girly and stylish yet the low waistline makes for a very effortless look.  Just add a white racer back, a pair of gladiators, some fun cocktail rings and you’re done! 4.  Kris Skirt by BB Dakota This look is definitely edgy and a little harder to pull of but when done right is SO cute.  To get this look just add a cropped tee, a long hang necklace, and layer on the bangles!
