The Problem with Fast Fashion | Part 3

So how do we fix the fashion industry? I wish I could give you a short sweet answer and a hopeful anecdote. Fixing the fashion industry is part activism, part protest, and part awareness. When you become aware of where and how your clothes are made only then can you start advocating for legislation, workers [...]

Wear it Wednesday | Summer Dresses

I remember as a little girl, absolutely loving wearing dresses and also being equally frustrated by them. As an adult, I have a new appreciation for dresses especially in the summer. They are fun, feminine, and can keep me significantly cooler than shorts. Here are a few of my favorite summer dresses. Yellow & White [...]

Wear it Wednesday | Yellow

If you’ve been here for any length of time, you’ve probably noticed my favorite color. Ever since I was little I have loved yellow, there was a brief time that I preferred pink over yellow, but looking back now that was because I gave into peer pressure. Yellow hasn’t always been a cool color. So [...]

Wear it Wednesday | My Favorite Shoes for Spring in Colorado

Spring in Colorado usually means 20-30’s in the morning and around the 60’s in the afternoon. This extreme variation in temperature can sometimes feel hard to get dressed around, but I have found if I am going from home into the office or into a building then I can enjoy some of my less wintery [...]

In recent months, more and more people have begun to question fast fashion and ask me how they can shop better. Including, how they can tell if a brand is ethical or not. As we all begin to emerge from our pandemic homes and wardrobes, it is important to ask these questions when buying something; [...]

Wear it Wednesday | 2020 Fall Trends

It felt super weird looking up trends for the fall season, cause spring trends were mostly leggings and comfy tops with sweatshirts. And with the pandemic still happening globally, I am going to presume we will still be rocking those leggings (and sweatshirts) just with more interesting combinations. We have made it this far into [...]
