Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
Unless this is your first time visiting Something About That (and if it is, welcome!), then you probably know that I’m a jeans and cardigan kind of girl…especially in the winter. I prefer jeans to dresses because I hate wearing tights and I prefer cardigans to pullover sweaters because I love to layer. Layers add so much visual interest to an outfit, allowing you to really show off your personality through your unique look.
Since I wear cardigans so often, I’m always searching for cute tees and tanks to wear underneath them. Needless to say, I was very excited when I discovered My HOME Apparel, so I could show off my Ontario pride and look stylish to boot!
My HOME Apparel is a Canadian company, based out of a small town in Nova Scotia. They work to create quality, stylish clothing that allows you to show off the province that you call “home.” I’ll be the first to admit that I complain about living here a lot, but it’s mostly because I’m not a fan of the winter. Even though I complain, I’ve never lived anywhere else, so even if I move away, Ontario will always be my home and I’m proud of that. Ontario is an incredible and diverse province. Living so close to Toronto (one of the biggest Canadian cities) is something I take for granted, but Ontario is so much more than Toronto. Ontario is home to some breathtaking lakes and hiking trails. If you’ve ever been camping in Muskoka or Algonquin park, you know the types of sights that I’m referring to!
One of the other reasons I fell in love with My HOME Apparel (aside from how cute the Ontario t-shirt is) is because of their efforts to give back. Obviously, by supporting them, you help to provide local jobs…but it’s bigger than that!
They understand that ‘home’ is important to everyone, but having a warm place to call home is something that so many of us (myself included) take for granted. In September 2015, My HOME Apparel partnered with Shelter NS, The Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness and 20K Homes to help to end homelessness in Canada. This means, 5% of their profits go towards initiatives to end homelessness in Canada. They believe that together, we can make a difference.
Pretty neat, right?
