WIWW posts I link up with The Pleated Poppy
It’s a way for me to have accountability and to actually get “dressed” every most days.
This week I am finally getting around to sharing my influence outfits..
although you would think being surrounded by 200+ bloggers
I would have amazing outfit pictures.
I don’t
I only have a few and most are from cell phones! HA

Live with Less (LWL)

LWL exists to inspire others to live with less, give more, and make a difference.
One of the biggest problems in countries that experience devastating poverty is a lack of clean drinking water.According to statistics, 4,000 children everyday are dying of water-related diseases such as cholera and typhoid that are easily preventable. All because they don’t have access to clean drinking water.
Our desire at Live With Less is to provide clean drinking water to communities who are without it.

from left to right MaryAimeeCarly, Me, Brittany and Julie in the front!
orange cardigan – old navy / pink tank – mod bod / Live with Less t shirt – BUY HERE / leggings – maurices / boots – kohl’s
If you buy one of LWL’s super cool and highly in demand t-shirts, a portion of your purchase will go towards the purchase of providing safe, clean drinking water for those who are currently without it.
For the remainder of 2012 LWL is partnering with The Mocha Club, an organization committed to alleviating poverty and injustice in Africa and they’re using a holistic approach to do so. One of their projects involves clean water and we’re so on board with that.Will you join us in changing lives forever?

Its funny that I packed 8 outfits for 4 days and ended up reusing pieces…
at least that meant less laundry!
