Fair OOTD | Midsummer Dream

featuring Mata Traders

Summer is most certainly in full swing at home. We are hitting the high 90s with crazy humidity - the kind where your hands stick together and your hair goes from straight to 'frizball' in 5 seconds. I could live my summer life in breathable 'throw-on' dresses until the weather calms down. It seems the first super hot day, we all start complaining and asking for fall. I think this season, I am going to enjoy the heat thoroughly in sweet dresses like this one {no whining about the hot hot sun this year :P}

Why I Love Mata Traders

A Chicago-based ethical brand, Mata Traders partners with artisans in Nepal & India to create beautiful dresses {like this one} & jewelry for women. The brand began when three best friends set out to trot the globe, and stayed in Mother India for 4 months. *cool fact: Mata is the word for Mother in Hindi & is a tribute to Shakti which is the female creative power in all of us.*

Mata Traders is helping to end global poverty through fashion, and by purchasing one of their pieces you are supporting a sustainable income for those who live in some of the poorest communities. Not only is the Midsummer Dream Dress adorable, it's contributing to better lives for those who need it most. This blue plaid dress is made from 100% cotton, and is exactly what summer prescribed. Total picnic ready! & being this is my second Mata Traders dress, I can definitely stand behind their quality :) They truly make a lovely summer dress!

Oh & don't forget to pair it with the lovely Heart Pendant Necklace from Mujus!

One of my favorite necklaces because hearts make my heart happy <3 

What makes your heart happy? Ethical fashion, maybe? :D
