Featuring Recreation California & BO Carter

My grandfather's house in South Florida has the most amazing elephant ear plants. One day, I'd love to have a big backyard with these lining the parameter. Last time I came down to visit was around Thanksgiving last year, and a ton of my little cousins trampled all over these beautiful guys. Fortunately, they came back stronger than ever and I got to take some more photos of them! 

Okay, now on to the outfit.. 

Why I Love Recreation California

Well first off, this line uses three of my favorites in sustainable fabrics: hemp, linen & organic canvas. I've always loved the art behind screen printing, and to think all of these prints were done using that technique is just amazing. There is a lot of work behind that, and the prints are truly something unique. Also - the colors! I'm an earth tone girl so naturally, I'm drawn in. 

I'm wearing the Topicialia Halter Top which is a total stunner. I'm usually not a fan of halter tops on me, but this one has totally made me change my mind. The cut is extremely flattering, and since I wear high waisted shorts throughout summer, it's the perfect length. Especially with sun-kissed skin, this top is made for your summer vacas. This same beautiful print comes in a number of styles, as well - skirts, pants, dresses & coats! See the entire collection, here.  

Why I Love BO Carter

An independent, ethical fashion brand out of the UK, BO Carter is mindfully designing contemporary garments for the conscious woman. Their aesthetic is so clean and practical. Adding one of their pieces to your wardrobe will never go out of style! I'm wearing the Isadora Shorts made from 100% certified organic crossweave cotton.
