The SEWN Co.

A retail start-up based in Chicago, The SEWN Co. features activewear, easy weekend clothing and {a favorite of mine} Desk-to-Drink pieces. With a strong love of Chicago culture, creator Candice Stewart is helping enrich her community by highlighting local designers with ethically driven businesses. The carefully curated collection of consciously-made chic clothing and accessories are well-constructed with quality and pride all right here in the USA! With the fashion industry being one of the biggest contributors to waste and poor working conditions, SEWN said enough was enough. It is time to take action, and promote a better way of buying - supporting conscious USA designers helps promote a healthier local economy and improves the lives of the people around us. #sewnintheusa

We stand for responsible fashion that does not kill our planet... We live for elegant, city style, and through our movement intend to reshape the fashion industry.
— Candice Stewart, Founder of The SEWN Co.

The Tracy Tank by good hYOUman puts a smile on my face. It reads 'My Life Story Will Be a Good One' - something a lot of us hope to achieve and work towards everyday. Not only is it inspirational, it's SUPER soft and made of Modal {my favorite fiber} & cotton. The cut is very flattering {great to wear with a fun sports bra to the gym}, and is long enough to pair with leggings. Or, do like me and wear it to the beach as a quick cover-up. ;) Check below for some more good hYOUman tees to rock this summer & at the gym. 

With summer months comes more rainy weather, so why not enjoy it in style? The Pastel Vinyl Rain Trench Coat {made-to-order in Seattle} is probably the coolest raincoat I have ever laid eyes on. I mean, how awesome is this play on color?!?! Plus, they have clear vinyl clutches to go with it!

Besides extremely comfy & motivational activewear and really great raincoats, The SEWN Co. has everything from tops to shoes so I made a little outfit for you above ^ Featuring a Beau & Ro handbag which can be used as a crossbody or clutch, a sweet arrow onyx cuff by CAM Jewelry, a sophisticated LBD by good hYOUman and a unique handmade iPhone case by Wildflower. Also, let's not forget the men - click here for some dapper accessories.
