During our first year of being married, Austin and I both had to work on Saturdays which left us with only Sundays to spend together. We loved those days off, but going to church on Sunday mornings meant that lazy mornings spent at a local coffee shop together were few and far between. Now that we have a proper two-day weekend, we’ve been enjoying Saturdays walking around downtown and visiting independent coffee shops in the area.
Since moving from Portland, we’ve been in Greenwood, South Carolina and, a few weekends ago, I put on my comfy peplum Chelsea tee from Elegantees and we took a walk and went to Aromas Village Coffee together.

Elegantees is an amazing company that helps rescue women from sexual slavery in Nepal and their Kingdom Hope Sewing Center provides security and jobs for women who have escaped the bonds of human trafficking. The Chelsea Tee was designed with Chelsea Lankford from Truelane and it helps restore lives, one tee at a time.
We are an awesome brand with beautiful products. Yes, you can find similar items for less elsewhere, but you can know your purchase has a purpose with us. Elegantees was started to help women recover from the bondage of sex trafficking. Once she’s rescued, we offer sewing jobs as an opportunity to keep her far from the possibility of being trafficked again. Each order goes into employing more women rescued from trafficking to give a hope and a future to them. Fight Against Modern-day Slavery | Elegantees
Our mission is to provide hope to overcomers of sex trafficking in Nepal. A positive source of income that reinforces independence, a healthy self-image, and confidence restores lives one elegant tee at a time.
Mission Statement | Elegantees
Aromas Village Coffee was a happy discovery we made in Greenwood and it is the perfect place to sit and talk after a walk around Downtown.
They even have coloring books and board games scattered around for anyone to use.
I don’t normally enjoy flavored drinks, however, I took a risk at Aromas with their signature Lavender Latte and I’m so glad that I did. Housemade lavender syrup, espresso, and half & half. The coffee was strong and it didn’t taste sweet at all. Now I wish I could go back every day.
