Metallic Top Won’t Stop

1234567810a

As you can probably tell by now, I am absolutely loving this metallic crop top that I scored at H&M. It’s only $4.99 and its a simple closet piece that can spice up any outfit. I really like pairing it with fun highwaist skirts. The black skirt I’ve had for years and I orignally bought it at Forever 21 (one of the few pieces that I still have from that store). My fishbone stockings are from Swedish stockings an awesome sustainable stockings line that really makes transitioning my skirts into fall and winter super br(easy)!

Sustainable Stockings with A-Line Skirt

I remember during the summer I was wearing A-line skirts almost everyday. Now that the cooler weather has finally rolled into Texas (yes-finally!) I’m still wearing them. We are having a much warmer winter this year so it hasn’t really felt like the holidays unfortunately. Hopefully though we continue to get more cooler weather. My Swedish Stockings are great for wearing under my favorite skirts, dresses, and shorts. Swedish stockings are a sustainable stocking brand that uses recycled materials. They are also a zero-waste company aiming to leave no-trace of toxic waste behind during their production process. You should really check out this brand. Love this cozy sweater from Halogen, similar style here. And during the summer I scooped this faux suede a-line skirt from jolt. They have similar styles here. And I’m still rocking my favorite lace up pumps from Chinese Laundry.They go with everything!

The Cutest Kimono : OOTD

Get ready! I am flooding your timeline with styles from ASOS Eco-brands because I just can’t get enough. Ever since I discovered that the fast fashion mega brand has their own eco-fashion labels I’ve been hooked. I bought this super feminine kimono romper on sale for $45 and I’m loving all the ways I can style it. Though rompers are typically a summer style, the dark print will go perfectly with black leggings making it Fall friendly. Fortunately for me, I live in Texas and the weather is still toasty. I loved the detailed rope belt that adds a pop of color and the extra flared sleeves.

  1. Reclaimed Vintage Kimono RomperReclaimed Vintage is just one of the eco-brands ASOS carries. This brand is known for re-purposing old fabrics and making them into chic bohemian styles. Perfect for festival! I also love this French chic look from them.
  2. MADE Triangle Pendant Necklace – Love the simplicity of minimal jewelry
  3. The bag is vintage, here’s a similar one. I added the patches myself, here are some fun ones you can add to your bag, jacket, or jeans!
  4. My mules are from Calvin Klein, they are sold out but this black pair is perfect for the outfit and they are under $40!

Brand Crush: Swedish Stockings

The world’s first eco-friendly hosiery line will keep your legs looking sexy this fall season. I discovered this brand on Instagram and knew I wanted to feature them on the blog. Stockings and tights are things we pay little attention to in regards to their environmental foot print. But they are petroleum based product and the industry is a huge player in environmental damage in the name of fashion. I can’t count the number of pairs I’ve bought over the years. They are cheap and easy to come by. Swedish stockings will change the way you think about your leggings fetish.

Each pair is made from 90% recycled yarn, their factories are solar powered, and they purify all water used during the production of the product before sending it back out into the environment. This zero waste production is the wave. So in essence, Swedish stocking are the clams of the fashion ocean. Taking in waste and producing an invaluable and pearl of a product. And I absolutely love the stockings.

If you are purchasing from the U.S. you can expect the line to run smaller. I’m a U.S. Size 2 and the medium pair fit me just right. They are called stockings, but I feel they are more like tights with a thicker feel and less sheer. This means they are not as easy to snag, and they will last you much longer than your typical run of the mill stocking.

Reformation (1)

Salut!

Today I’m spotlighting the eco-friendly brand Reformation. I absolutely love this brand and it is one of the most stylish eco-friendly fashion lines I’ve come across to date. Not only is everything on trend, but it is also ultra femme. Even if it wasn’t an eco-friendly clothing line, I would still buy their clothes. I’ve picked some of my fall favorites and I know you will absolutely love the picks! Just try not to go crazy on your credit card. ; )
