Little Lentil Clothing

Before Elliott was born, I had made up my mind. If I were to buy new clothing for him, it would have to be organic! What we put on their brand new skin is incredibly important. What’s also important is picking brands who make clothes you can easily mix and match - and styles which are practical and everyday! 

Reasons to Love Little Lentil Clothing

Safe & Soft for Baby: All of their clothing is made from 100% certified organic cotton making it incredibly comfy for your baby {& you.. since after all, you are holding and snuggling them so much :D}. Plus, they use low-impact dyes and always produce with fair labor practices!

Capsule Wardrobing for the Little Ones:  I wish I had thought of capsule wardrobing for Elliott in the beginning. We had so many things - mostly gifts - he only wore a couple of times because they weren’t super practical. With Little Lentil Clothing, you can make a 6 [$98] or 10 [$152] piece capsule wardrobe helping you save time and money.

Love the Clothes & Send Them Back: Okay, this is just too cool and isn’t done enough. Kids grow SO fast, and being able to send clothing back to be appreciated by other children is wonderful! PLUS, you can send back your old Little Lentil Clothing and receive 15% off your next purchase. Learn more about their Send-Back Program - here -

psst.. also check out their loved again vintage denim selection!

What Elliott is Wearing

This color is so beautiful, and the name would have had me sold before seeing it. Now that Elliott is becoming a lot more mobile, I like being able to throw a tee over his head with pants that easily slide on. He moves way too much for me to use snaps or buttons. This set is just perfect for both our energy!

Shop Conscious Goods Easily Through Green Roost's Instagram

Green Roost

You may remember seeing this shop on my blog last year! It’s definitely special to me since their brick-and-mortar is located in the same town my mom owned a sewing machine store for over a decade. I did much of my growing up in Culpeper, VA, and wish we had the Green Roost around when I was kid :D 

Reasons to Love Green Roost

Conscious Products for the Entire Family: I love it when a store can incorporate baby to papa! It’s a great space to go to when shopping for gifts since you can easily check everyone off your list in one go. Green Roost definitely shows you can make conscious choices when purchasing gifts for others and not have to sacrifice quality or style in the process.

Easy to Shop via Social Media: I think for most of us, Instagram is our main source of information regarding ethical and eco-friendly products. Well, why not shop directly from there? With Green Roost’s Instagram, products are uploaded daily in their stories, and all you have to do is send a DM to start the purchase. They receive lots of new products throughout the week, and not everything makes it to their website. Instagram gives you that first chance to snag it!

Brick-and-Mortar for Virginia: Being able to actual visit an eco-conscious store is a refreshing experience. For anyone who lives in the VA area, I highly suggest you taking a trip to Culpeper and visiting their little downtown.

What We’re Using

Leather Phone Wallet: I know I may be living life on the edge, but I actually prefer to use my phone without a case. This wallet is perfect because it can protect my phone while in my handbag, but I can still use the phone case free. This leather is also dyed using a more eco-friendly technique and avoids the usual harsh chemicals found with most leather goods.

Cotton & Wax Soy Candle: When will the internet let you smell things?! This eucalyptus candle smells absolutely amazing. Plus, 10% of profits are donated to support animal rescue.

Artisan Soap Bar: Whenever I have guests over, I love opening a new bar of soap and lighting a candle in the bathroom. I got to do this last night when a lot of my family came over for dinner! I think everyone appreciates a brand new bar of soap - and hey, no plastic!! :D 

Bamboo Onesie: Milkbarn makes the SOFTEST onesies I’ve ever felt, and their mission makes their product even better. Through Exile International, Milkbarn is able to bring restoration to rescued child soldiers and children orphaned by war in DR Congo and Uganda. This program empowers them through art therapy and holistic, rehabilitative care in order to become leaders of peace.

p.s. remember this blanket?

Where to Shop

Like I mentioned before, the best place to shop all things Green Roost is through their Instagram - here - they also have their website, as well as their brick-and-mortar located in Culpeper, VA.

Puck Wanderlust

{keep reading to see how you can save on your first purchase} 

This is my 3rd piece from Puck Wanderlust & I’ve fallen in love all over again. The beautiful craftsmanship and design always gets me. Even Travis told me this morning that he liked my necklace! He rarely comments on my clothing, so I know this is a good one ;)

Reasons to Love Puck Wanderlust

Stunning Design: From ‘Day of the Week’ Totems to moonstones, each Puck Wanderlust piece has its own charm. Since everything is made by hand, no two pieces will ever be exactly alike which gives your piece so much character. The Bombay Deco collection {their newest one} is inspired by Indian art deco, and their geometric motifs, curvilinear lines, vibrant colors and patterns.

Ethical Production: All collections are designed in London, and handmade in Jaipur, India in a family owned gem and silver craft shop where fair working conditions have been established for their employees for decades.

Eco-Minded Materials: Puck Wanderlust pieces are hand-crafted in 100% recycled 925 silver and 18 carat gold vermeil with stones that have been hand selected, hand cut, and lovingly set.

What I’m Wearing

Black Onyx Eros Pendant Charm Necklace: This necklace is stunning, and I LOVE the new satellite chains they are using - so elegant! A Bombay deco inspired charm, this pendant features a lovely black onyx. This stone is also referred to as the ‘strength stone’, and it helps to enhance your focus while raising your energy.

Where to Purchase

You can find their entire collection online - here - and don’t forget to stay up-to-date with all new designs on Instagram!

Organizing Baby Toys with Sustainably-Handcrafted, Washable Sacs

Urbana Sacs

{keep reading for a discount code below}

If I’m going grocery shopping for more than a day’s worth of food, I ALWAYS bring my Carry-all Sac from Urbana Sacs {remember from last Spring?}. And pretty much each time, someone asks me where it’s from and what’s it made out of - people LOVE it. When I say ‘it’s washable, too’, they don’t believe me :P 

I’m always happy to add more to my Urbana Sacs collection because their products are seriously great!!

Reasons to Love Urbana Sacs

Sustainably-Made: Urbana Sacs products are made from a variety of virgin pulp fiber blends and recycled felt, and manufactured through cultivation rather deforestation. You are able to shape them like clay, and use them time and time again. Plus, they are all made in LA!

Personalization: This is something new to Urbana Sacs, and I’m lovin’ it. Elliott is learning both French and English so I try to mix it up in our home. Our sacs say ‘Les Jouets d’Elliott’ which is ‘Elliott’s Toys’ in English :D Cute, right?!

Washable: I think most parents are going to love this feature! Elliott is a mess with his sticky hands and mouth over anything he can grab, so having products I can easily clean are extremely important to me.

What We’re Using

Carry-All Organizers: Like most kids, Elliott has A LOT of toys {many which are 2nd-hand, so I’m not too upset about it}. He needs organization, and these personalized bins are helping us out a lot! You can find them in all different sizes and colors in order to best suit your home.

Where to Purchase

See the entire Urbana Sacs collection online - here - and don’t forget to follow them on Instagram to stay up-to-date with all new products. 

PLUS+ through Monday, use code SCHIC25 for 25% off your purchase!

Affordable, Ethically-Crafted Fine Jewelry that Gives Back with Each Purchase

Charmed by a Cause

{keep reading for a discount code below!}

Since my Valentine’s Day post featuring this ethical jewelry brand, I’ve been wearing the Multi Heart Band Ring almost every day. Not only does it look lovely on its own, but it’s also been great for stacking with my other silver pieces! Like the name says, these pieces truly are charming, and I’m always happy to add another to my collection <3

Reasons to Love Charmed by a Cause & Their Cause Partners

As you may remember from last month’s post, Charmed by a Cause pieces are ethically-made in NYC from 100% recycled 14kt gold, sterling silver, ethically-sourced natural stones & reclaimed or lab grown diamonds. Their prices are quite affordable since they sell direct-to-consumer and can avoid those markup fees. Plus, when you shop their jewelry, each piece will show exactly how much money is given to your Cause Partner of choice. 

With each purchase, 20% of sales go to one of these partners: 

American Foundation for Suicide Prevention: A voluntary health organization giving those affected by
suicide a nationwide community in order to take action against this leading cause of death. 

Covenant House: A safe haven sheltering and caring for homeless and trafficked youth in 31 cities across 6 countries.

Woodstock Farm Sanctuary: An organization rescuing farmed animals and giving them care & sanctuary, as well as advocating for animal rights.

What I’m Wearing

Love Key Pendant: “Love Opens All Doors” The gentle reminder to always keep an open heart is something I need a lot of these days! I’ve been struggling to find a balance between my new role as mama and entrepreneur, which has distracted me from the rest of the world. Not feeling as if I am allowed to be upset {because I do have a good life} has blocked me up. I think an open heart enables you to feel everything - even the sadness - in order to grow because we all have our struggles no matter the circumstances. It’s also about loving yourself so you can give the best of your love to others. I truly enjoy this necklace & all that it represents for me. You can find it in Recycled Sterling Silver, 14K Yellow, or White Gold.

Where to Purchase

Shop their entire collection - here - and through the end of March, you can use code SUSTAINABLYCHIC for 15% off your total purchase {this is very rare of them to do since they give 20% back to their partner causes & avoid markups selling direct-to-consumer so we thank them very much!!}.
