I thought I'd start putting together some complete looks that are 100% fair fashion in order to paint a better picture on just how cool & trendy sustainably made clothes can be. Whether made by artisans in developing countries, right here in the US or abroad, all garments included have been made with love and workers have been compensated fairly. Contrary to the theme, I won't be posting these outfits daily since I do wear my clothing over and over again. Things may get super repetitive ;) I believe in staples and finding items I can wear for years to come. I hope you enjoy this new segment of Sustainably Chic, and get inspired to create a smaller, more responsible wardrobe. Click below to get all the deets..
My Summer Casual OOTD features:
Zion Chambray Shorts from MORE Clothing
These lightweight organic cotton chambray shorts are a great staple for summer. They are comfortable enough to wear all day, and look the part for either an afternoon or evening outing. Made by United by Blue, for every pair sold, one pair of trash is removed from our oceans and waterways. These are certainly more than just a pair of shorts!!

Suborsubor Sandals by Mawu Lolo
Made in Ghana, these sandals are handcrafted by artisans working under fair wages and earning a sustainable income. They are created with traditional patterns of kente cloth, and come in three different beautiful color combinations. I'm wearing the brown, black & white, which is easy to style with the rest of my closet. Size up as they run small.
Macaw Clutch by Kakaw Designs
Can't leave home without the right clutch. This one is the perfect on-the-go size, and adds a pop of color to your neutral palette. The stunning pattern you see here is made from a traditionally-woven textile in the village San Juan Sacatepéquez. Use code SUSTAINABLYCHIC for 15% off all orders of $100+ at: www.kakawdesigns.com
Wanted to end with some photos taken with my new lens around my apartment, today. I'm loving this 85mm!!! Magnifies the world's beauty.
What are some of your summer favorites in fair fashion??
