{such a} Mixing Business with Pleasure

Recently I started a new position as the New Business Director with a design firm in Cincinnati called Sanger & Eby. Topping my list of reasons for wanting to work at Sanger & Eby: their passion for creative and commitment to giving back to the community and the opportunity to work with Macy's.

Recently Sanger & Eby wrapped up a project that combined creative, community involvement and my favorite thing...shopping. We worked with Macy's to create the Shop for a Cause website and application. Shop for A Cause is Macy's national charity shopping day, where participants purchase a $5 shopping card to use on October 17th in any Macy's store or online at macys.com. The money raised from the sale of the cards goes back to local non-profits. Since 2006, Shop for a Cause has helped non-profits raise more than $28 million.

Since I have a passion for giving back and a passion for shopping, I've created a mini-list of fall must-haves available at Macy's. Support any of these charities by Shopping for a Cause on October 17th!

1. Military Bolero - top a simple tee with this structured jacket. Fun with jeans for a night out, or pair it with a ruffled skirt to get a contrast of tough and gentle. $69

2.Boho Dress - be a little exotic in a boho dress. Add tights and booties for work, and if the color works, add your Military Bolero when it gets colder. $89

3. The White Shirt- a little forgiving in shape and more relaxed than your Daddy's button-down, this white shirt is part business, part romantic. $69

4. Skinny Jeans - don't fret...these body-forgiving skinny jeans will free you to reconsider skinny jeans as part of your wardrobe. Add The White Shirt for a casual weekend outfit. $79.50

5. Slouchy Boot - Tuck your Skinny Jeans into these cuties and be ready if it rains or snows. Super-cute with buckle detail! $79
