toms haiyan initiative + ootd

 Although I prefer to dress in layers, I can't deny the fact that summer's fast approaching. Instead of avoiding it, I decided to get a head start by taking an early vacation at the beach!

And now, I take back what I said, I do love summer after all.

This vacay has reminded me that summer isn't just about a change in ootd's. (duh. haha)

It's about taking things slow, appreciating the beauty around you and making the most out of the moment.

We are only young once (or young-ish hehe).

In fact, that realization had such a profound effect on me that I made a vow to visit the beach at least once a month this summer.

I get so caught up sometimes in what I do, you guys might not understand, but for me, it's really important that I get reminded of these things.

And I think it's so timely that TOMS has simultaneously released their limited edition "Haiyan Initiative" shoes:

TOMS has and will always (probably) be the perfect summer shoe for me and the #HaiyanInitiative just gave me more reason to shop for a new pair.

Lest we forget about the damage that typhoon Haiyan left, TOMS has made it a point to keep the issue current by supporting AMERICARES and their relief efforts in all devastated regions.

Proceeds of each Haiyan Initiative shoe bought will go to the rehabilitation and rebuilding of those lives and homes that were destroyed by Yolanda.

To this day, many remain homeless.

If you would like to pay it forward and give your brothers and sisters hope and a reason to live again, I can't think of a better and easier way to do it than by purchasing a Haiyan Initiative shoe.


Get yours at Nothing But H2O, TOMS Megamall and The Give Project.

This is a great initiative from Toms. It's been some time already and it's sad to hear that many are still homeless.

How much does a pair of #Haiyaninitiative shoes cost? I'd like to get one for myself, too. Like you, we're also looking forward to spending time at the beach. -- Maria Teresa Figuerres
