It’s July, which means the hot hot hot summer weather is here to stay for the next 5 months.. haha, kidding.. or am I? I like to spend a lot of time outdoors {before noon and after 6pm} with Elliott. We go on long strolls and explore so comfy shoes are a must. 

Shop the Look:

Neven Low Sneakers, Yatay $222

Something I’ve found rather difficult to find within sustainable fashion are conscious sneakers. It’s a category I can't make a long list in so it’s exciting to come across the Italian brand Yatay. They are pretty darn conscious {not to mention, comfortable!!} all the way down to the packaging. Made entirely out of eco-friendly materials, this minimalistic shoe marks everything off our sustainable list, and for my vegan friends, they are Peta-approved! The upper part of the shoe is created out of a non-woven fabric made from recycled raw materials and BioPolyols {from vegetable oil}. The lining also takes advantage of waste and uses a recycled polyester and water-borne polyurethane, and the sole is made up of two green bioplastic cores derived from industrial waste. I absolutely love the use of hemp for the laces, and think it adds such a unique touch. The simplistic design makes them timeless and wearable season after season. I’m rocking the Neven Lows in Slate Black {find them in 5 other colors}, but you can also find a High style. & what’s also interesting - their website is on a green hosting provider! Pretty cool, huh? 

Bucca Sunglases, Woodsi $97

Remember the Yamba’s from last week? Well, this is another awesome pair of shades from the same brand, Woodsi! These lightweight sunnies are hand-crafted from sustainable FSC certified ebony and rosewood, and come with a charcoal grey foldable recycled card eco-case. Plus, each pair purchased will plant a tree! 

Self Love T-shirt, Palabra $32

August Birthwood Ring, Simply Wood $265

Ayurvedically-dyed Shorts, Sustain by Kat $86
