Fair OOTD | A Mama & Baby Look

It might sound silly, but I do try to coordinate mine and Elliott’s outfits most days. We don’t have many similar pieces, but if I can get us in the same colors {along with some contrasting like the blue and pink here} then I’m happy with that. After I get him all dressed up, I have to take some photos, right?! He is somewhat unenthused as I skip with him gleefully in my arms to the beach to snap some shots. Maybe one day he will have as much fun as me?! Or, I’ll just hear, ‘why mom? can’t I just go and play in the water?’. I’ll keep you posted ;) 

Shop the Look:

{for mama}

Koa Kimono, Arraei Collective $195
Arraei Collective is using natural fibers to create effortless sustainable clothing fit for a minimalist closet. The designs can easily be added into your existing wardrobe - and I’d start with this kimono! The Koa can be found in a 100% hemp natural beige or this beautiful autumn digital print on 100% linen with both fabrics being OEKO-TEX Standard 100 Certified. What I really like about this piece is its versatility. The kimono looks great closed for a more tailored look, or open for a more relaxed feel. Arraei goes full circle when it comes to sustainability - packaging is eco-friendly, paper is recycled, hemp twine for hang tags, cotton labels, certified & organic fabrics, digital printed on linen instead of regular dye processes, hemp fabrics are un-dyed & unaltered, fair trade, and always made in Vancouver to support local business with the sustainable circular economy in mind! 

Silk Camisole in Blush, Sassind $66

Morgan Sandals in Licorice, Oka-B $40 *use code Chic10 for 10% off*

Grey Stripes Suspender Crop Pants, Mini-Cycle $28
How cute are these?! I think one of my favorite ways to dress up Elliott is in overalls and suspenders. He just looks so sweet and put together, while being rather comfy! Mini-Cycle is a super cool concept for us parents because we all know how quickly our little ones grow out of clothing. I mean, it’s ridiculous how fast! This site allows you to purchase from conscious, quality baby & kid brands {from newborn to 8 years}, and then sell it back after they can no longer fit into it.

How the Mini-Cycle concept works: First, you pre-cycle and buy from them a new or used garment, then you mid-cycle and trade in the clothes you purchased before to get paid, and last they re-cycle by washing, repairing and repurposing to sell to other parents.  Mini-cycle has officially created a closed-loop cycle for 'mini' fashion!
