Oh hey guys – it’s been awhile! July was a travel month for me and I ended up spending 3 weeks in Pennsylvania visiting family and then came back to Cali and immediately went to San Diego for Comic Con! When we got back to our apartment a few days later we found out our AC was still broken so we spent the rest of the week sweating it out in the heatwave and barely getting any work done. So for the past two weeks I feel like I’ve been playing catch up from everything! I need a vacation from my vacations!
Anyway, I think I’m finally getting back into the swing of things (fingers crossed). I’ve got a new outfit to share with you today featuring some cool brands that also happen to care about ethical production.
Ethical Fashion Brands:
I’m sure you’re all familiar with Everlane by now since I talk about them all the time! I absolutely LOVE their shoes and these Day Glove shoes have been on repeat al summer. Seriously, the most comfortable pair of flats I own – dare I say, the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. I really need to pick them up in other colors because they are that good. The white pair is definitely calling my name. And of course, Everlane is committed to using ethical factories that pay workers a fair wage.
It looks like Industry Standard is taking a little break this summer but they are a denim line that’s made in Los Angeles! But trust me, you’ll love the classic styles. Be sure to check them out when they are back from break!
First up is this cute linen/cotton top from VOLOSHIN. This is a new-to-me-brand and I was impressed with the breezy, bohemian inspired pieces in cute prints and patterns. I could totally see me living in these pieces all summer long. I love the subtle pattern and since it’s made out of linen/cotton, it’s the perfect piece to keep me cool during the summer. Right now a lot of pieces are on sale so be sure to check it out!
31 Bits is an accessory and home goods brand that features ethically made pieces by artisans from around the world. Last year I picked up one of their woven bags and fell in love! It’s the perfect little summer bag and surprisingly, it fits all the essentials. This year they were kind enough to send me this wicker hinge bag from their new collection! It’s the perfect size and actually has a lot of room inside. I LOVE THIS BAG and will definitely be wearing it a lot this summer.
Last but not least are my earrings from Purpose Jewelry. This accessories brand works with survivors of human trafficking to give them employment, empowerment, and hope for the future! I’ve been a fan of this company for years and have bough several of their pieces as gifts for family. I’ve also styled a few pieces on the blog (see here and here). Since I first heard about them years ago they’ve added several lines including a Premier Line featuring 14K gold and rhodium pieces and most recently an Ankole Horn jewelry line. The earrings I’m wearing in today’s post are a part of the Ankole Horn line. I love how they give off a natural vibe but are still minimal and modern. They are also super lightweight which is something I look for with my earrings.

Now onto Flashback Fashion Fridays! Here’s a look from last August. This was my first outfit post since having my baby! I really love this Who What Wear Collection dress. Sadly, I think it’s a little too big for me now since I lost the baby weight. But I’m keeping it around just in case I get pregnant again!
Adri and I would love for you to link up your fashion posts! I’ll be back next week with our picks!
