Hey Crew! Happy Pay it Forward Friday! When I set out to build this blog, one of the main drivers minus my love for shopping and styling was to give back and help bring awareness to causes, which is why I am so incredibly honored to be partnering with /GIV/.
/GIV/ is a lifestyle retail pop-up shop focused exclusively on products with purpose. Every brand they represent supports philanthropy or gives back to charity directly. Their mission is to introduce you to a new way of living, by giving back through your everyday lifestyle and let me tell you MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.
Both the online store and in-person pop-up shops are filled with the most beautiful, affordable items from jewelry to home goods and the best part is every purchase gives back to a cause– from sending kids to college, to building orphanages, to helping survivors of sex trafficking, to donating a week of meals and tuition to girls in Haiti, to helping children with cancer and more. Check out the current list here (they are always adding new partners and products).
Not only was I lucky enough to attend an in-person pop-up last month but the lovely ladies at /GIV/gave me a sneak peek at some of their new items! And what perfect timing, as each of the partners they work with are women owned and it just so happens to be Women’s History Month!
Below are some photos from my private little pop-up with some of my favorite items–it was so was so hard to narrow it down! Also, full disclosure…my beloved photographer Beth Caldwell is currently recovering from surgery so the photos definitely don’t live up to her talent!
So get started celebrating the women in your life, including yourself this March and head over to /GIV/. Haute Navy readers get a special 10% discount with code: NAVY. And for those of you in the DC metro area, check here for upcoming pop-up events! Make sure you scroll all the way down for GIVEAWAY details!
