Well Covered

I am so honored to announce a new partnership that I've formed with the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation.  They reached out to me after reading this article where I shared my story and I immediately said yes.  I am thrilled to be able to get involved, help raise funds for Lupus research and, most importantly, educate & encourage others who are living with this disease.  I will be periodically guest writing for the S.L.E. Lupus Foundation’s website providing lifestyle, fashion, beauty and health tips for women to feel better inside and out.  And I will also be speaking at their Wellness Workshop and participating in the Lupus Walk in NYC this fall.  It's a cause that I am passionate about and an area where I feel that I can really make a difference by sharing my journey to remission.

Because I'm so excited about this new opportunity, I decided to share here the first post I created for their summer newsletter.  For those who may not be familiar with this auto-immune many cases, increased symptoms & Lupus flares can be brought on by prolonged sun exposure - which makes it especially difficult to manage during the summer months.  So my challenge/goal was to show that you can still look chic while protecting your skin & staying covered up!  This easy breezy outfit is perfect for a day at the beach (just throw on over your suit) or a picnic in the park.

What I'm wearing:
LOFT chambray shirtSO linen pants, c/o Old Navy sandals
Mossimo hat (similar under $15under $20 or under $30), c/o Old Navy bucket bag
Bracelets: Zara (similar) & LOFT (similar here and here), Ray-Ban sunglasses
Lips: Revlon Moon Drops (Blase Apricot), Nails: Essie Waltz

Thank you for bringing to light the fact that many of us have an autoimmune disease. My heart goes out to you and your family. Stay strong and never give up. My family is affected by several autoimmune diseases. Again, thank you for being open and honest.
