EVERLANE: ONE ETHICAL BRAND YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT

EVRLN.JPG

Hope you’re well! You guys, this is my second blog post this month and it’s only day 12. I’d say that I’m on a roll! Ha. What I plan to start doing more is focusing on creating more lifestyle content while still staying in the fashion lane. Starting with this post about this brand that I recently found out about, and now LOVE. This post is not sponsored, I just want to share with you where I’m currently shopping, and what I’m into. Everlane is a lifestyle clothing brand that focuses on quality modern basics. They partner with the best ethical factories around the world, all while sourcing the absolute best materials and fabrics. What I love about this brand, is that they aim to tell a story with a breakdown of the legitimate cost of every single product.

WHAT I’M WEARING:

Although I was surprised to find that this cardigan was only 73% cotton, it truly is the softest and most comfortable cardigan I have ever felt. It has a slight stretch to it, slightly cropped, with 3 large tortoise buttons, and a larger ribbed knit detail. It’s very chunky but still feels lightweight enough to wear during the Spring. I paired mine with jeans, but you can totally pull this off with a skirt or shorts as well. It will definitely be a new staple in my closet as I never really wear cardigans. I might even style this over a strappy silk slip dress. This cardigan was produced in Fujian, China.

These jeans are super duper stretchy and fit like a glove! I went down a size in these after reading the reviews on how the fit feels with time and multiple wears. I’m a sucker for a great pair of high-rise jeans and the 4 button details just does it all for me. They are available in “ankle” or “regular” length with a form-flattering fit. Made with renewable energy resources, these jeans are 77% cotton, 17% modal, and 4% other - produced in Bien Hoa, Vietnam.

Now I never, ever thought that I would be attracted to a shoe style like this one, but needless to say - I frickin’ love these. Honestly. These are like flats, but with a walkable 2-inch block/stacked heel. They are called the “Day Heel” because you can literally wear them #AllDamnDay (a hashtag they actually use) without the discomfort of wearing regular heels for hours at a time. These are 100% Italian leather and are available in 6 different colors. I was skeptical about what size to order because they are extremely buttery soft so I didn’t want them to be too tight. I got my true size and they fit perfectly. The color I’m wearing is Pecan and it’s the perfect neutral shade for my skin tone! I like the fact that you can wear these with jeans, dresses, or skirts and can be worn day or night. They also make The Day Boot, The Day Glove flat + many other styles worth checking out including the Day Heel Higher Heel (a higher heeled version.) These shoes were produced in Montopoli in Val D’Arno, Italy.

8 SEQUINS TOPS TO SHINE IN THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

It’s so crazy to think about how soon the holidays came about and how soon we’re already talking about New Years Eve! I can honestly say that the holidays are my favorite simply because I’m a December baby, and there’s always an excuse to get extra festive and sparkly during this time of season. Holiday parties to attend, and tons of other special events to get fancy for.

In this post I wanted to highlight this sequins turtleneck top from & Other Stories. I have never had a sequins turtleneck and when I saw this one, I knew I had to have it! On the website, the model was actually wearing it with jeans and I was like YES that’s exactly how I would wear it too, so I paired it with my new favorite AGOLDE Riley jeans. I absolutely love pairing statement tops with casual bottoms because I love the casual-chic look and it gives you more freedom to wear a statement heel, or a slick ankle boot like these that I am wearing from Zara. Below, I have selected 8 different sequins statement tops that you can ring in the new year with! Try pairing your statement tops with jeans to re-create this look with your personal style! Which top caught your eye the most? Any special holiday plans? Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas! <3

 

STYLE EDIT: TOP PLAID PIECES TO CHECK OUT NOW

Without a doubt, plaid is never going to go out of style. Plaid prints are so easy to incorporate into any look to make a statement - whether that’s a big or subtle statement. The good thing is that plaid comes in a variety of different types, colors and types. My favorite go-to plaid piece is definitely a plaid blazer. I feel as if blazers put the cherry on top of any look that you are going to achieve. Pictured above, I added a blazer on top of a cropped tank and jeans..boom..added the blazer and the whole looked became complete! What I love most about plaid, is that you can mix prints with it to go for a bolder look. Try mixing plaid with leopard print, something striped, or even one of fall’s biggest trends - snake print. Below are plaid pieces that you can shop + get some major fall outfit inspiration from. Be sure to tell me which plaid look (or piece) is your favorite and how you plan to style it this season!

TOPS:

A plaid top is probably one of the most easiest pieces to style because all you have to do is throw on a pair of jeans, skirt, or shorts and you’re good to go. Remember, your plaid piece is your statement so keep the rest of your outfit simple. Play with your style! Tuck it in, roll the sleeves, tie it up, do you boo!

BLAZERS:

OK, a plaid blazer is like…a classic staple. You must own a plaid blazer! If you don’t, consider this a push to buy one this fall season. I recently got one from H&M to wear during New York fashion week to wear with the matching plaid pants (below) and I am in love with the tie/wrap detail!

DRESSES:

Well of course dresses was going to be on the list because you just have to put on one piece, and your outfit is set, sis! Depending on the style of the dress, you can add accessories for some extra touches like belts, hats, knee-high boots, belt/waist bags or statement jewelry.

TROUSERS:

For all my ladies who love pants (I’m with you) I didn’t leave us out! Pants - or trousers as the UK natives call it - are forever going to be one of my main essential go-tos. If you’re wearing plaid pants, let them do the talking and pair them with a simple top or sweater for the fall. Lately, I have been seeing lots of chunky knits half tucked in trousers and skirts. Gonna try that next!
