Resist Insist Persist.

I have been waiting to post these photos forever and am SO EXCITED to share them because (besides just really really liking this outfit), my friend Dara launched her brand new Activist Collection on Monday. The hats are incredible – made in New York and hand embroidered in New York (by Dara herself – it takes her hours to do each one!) On top of that, the five messages you can choose from are incredible. I chose “Resist, Insist, Persist,” but I also really love “Feminist AF.” Maybe the best part? For every hat sold, she is donating 15% of sales to the feminist charity of your choice. L-O-V-E.

If you aren’t familiar with Preston and Olivia you absolutely should be. Her hats are incredible. I have four! (As an aside, I just bought – yes, bought – this one for Cartagena… it’s completely amazing and special.) The quality and design behind each of her hats is amazing. I’ve gotten to know Dara pretty well over the past few months as she’s married to my photographer Trent, and we’ve become Sky Ting / Shape House buddies. Her taste is pretty impeccable… she’s so stylish that I joke that she should be the style blogger and not me! Talk about a creative and talented couple!

  1. Ah, I do wish I could wear hats well, because the look you have is super cute! 🙁 I do love the quote on it though. Might be my new motto from now on! 🙂

    Is the link to your coat that exact same coat? When I look at it on shopbop it looks like the “stripes” go straight & not diagonal which I like more?
