As POPSUGAR editors, we independently select and write about stuff we love and think you'll like too. If you buy a product we have recommended, we may receive affiliate commission, which in turn supports our work.
This May, we want to feel good about what we're shopping (when we're shopping) and make sure we're supporting small businesses that need our help now more than ever. As the weather turns and we allow the sunshine to brighten our days, we're looking forward to wearing warm-weather pieces — from straw sun hats to breezy dresses that will take us right into summer — and we refuse to shy away from color, since it's a total mood booster.
We decided to spotlight some of our favorite women-run fashion brands and the lovely pieces they're creating. (Shout-out to Roxanne Assoulin and her "Love Endlessly" pendant — we feel you!) You probably haven't heard of all of these labels, but we promise you'll continue to follow them now that we're making the introduction.
Even though we know not everyone can afford to shop right now, these are companies that could use your help if your finances allow it and, like us, you've been de-stressing with some online browsing. Whether you're shopping for Mother's Day or looking to treat a loved one with something special to show them you've been thinking of them, you will definitely find something meaningful when you scroll.
