expect us

August 27, 2019

Here with another for my power feminist tee series. And this one is personal.

This tee was designed and conceptualized by my friend Maura Conine, owner of the Chicago boutique Capsule. Together with her friend Katie Brooks, Maura came up with the phrase ‘Expect Us’ as an expression of action rather than judgment, and then committed the proceeds of the sales to support Moms Demand Action and RAICES Texas. At this point, Maura has raised over $1,200 for the organizations and will continue to sell the last of her limited supply through the end of September. You can find info for the tee via Instagram.

For all the above reasons, and for the message behind the tee, you could for sure Expect Me to have told her to send me one immediately.

I now Expect You to do the same 👊🏻.

tie blouse

I like to keep it easy. Plain and simple. This white tank is definitely a clutch one for me, made all the better by its exaggerated tie detail. Paired with a pair of MOTHER denim (in the Hustler cut, a cut that actually looks…

statement wrap

I wouldn’t call this one “out of my comfort zone” but it is definitely “out of my norm.” A silky bold cheetah print is definitely more loud than what I would typically go for, but as I was trying to put something together for…
