Yesterday, I had the pleasure of meeting up with some badass @la_bloggers
for an amazing brunch full of strategy, encouragement, and solid business advice. Styling can feel isolating at times, and it’s so refreshing to bounce ideas off other entrepreneurs with such individual strengths and talents.
We were given a tour of New Orleans’ own @PythianMarket
, which hosts an array of fab cuisine, contemporary updated event halls and magnificent views of the city. My original plan was to tour the city and shoot a few looks to upload over the next few weeks, but it was cold and rainy so I took my lazy ass home and ate leftover pizza in the comfort of my cozy bed! GLaMoRoUs!!!!
Ain't nobody's business if we do. #BillieHoliday
Dressing well should feel as great in your soul as it does on your body. LALF cotton improves the lives of our farmers and their families while eliminating toxins from the water and the earth.
Short sleeve sweats = spring uniform
The top of our dreams is here!! Warning ⚠️ Once you put her on you will never want to take off, she’s that comfy/cute 🤗
〰️ The Louisa Top is now available in rust gingham, sky blue, gold floral and of course black.
Who is ready for spring? 🤗 Well, we are pretty excited to showcase our #ss19
I was beginning to feel overwhelmed. Relate?⠀
So I left NYC this weekend and got a pedicure, meditated outdoors in a ❄️ wonderland, bonded with my friends by their pellet stove and played with their 👶 ⠀
I got these amazing @alternativeapparel
sweats for 💝 day. Obviously I am old when THAT is your 🎁 request. I put them to efficient use 😂 @alternativenewyork
uses recycled polyester and low-impact dyes, and are a small, ethical ♻️🌱 company.⠀
Comment 🛏 if you believe in downtime and self-care! What’d you do this long weekend? ⠀
! The little tags from my last post are from one of my favorite eco-conscious brands. Tentree, a lifestyle apparel company, plants 10 trees for every item purchased and the tag included with your item allows you to register your tree code and track where your trees will be planted. ↟
I was inspired by this brand to understand more about reforestation and how we can support reforestation efforts even in the simplest ways. Nature is key to healing our planet and scientists are saying halting deforestation is just as urgent as reducing emissions. My next several posts will cover actionable, realistic ways we can support reforestation!
One of the reasons to love TenTree is because of their incredible goal to be the most environmentally progressive brand on the planet, by not just reducing the negative impact of the apparel industry but also revitalizing the environment. Currently they have planted over 25 million trees!
Their clothing is constructed from natural materials including coconut buttons, hemp, cork trims, organic cotton, recycled polyester, TENCEL, modal and linen. In this photo you can see the cork used for their little logos on each item I’m wearing!
Pictured is Tentree’s tulita vest and cable beanie. ♥︎ Link in bio if you want to check out their goods!

Fresh artist series tee and petite ladies 505s, both thrashed to perfection.
I always think to myself, “don’t give in to all the trends,” yet here I am in more snakeskin.
But, these @celine
kicks are arguably the cutest flats I’ve ever owned and I’m praying they won’t go out of style anytime soon.
Shooting some new vintage today & tomorrow 〰 stick around 🌞
COZY HOME-WEAR SET | PURE ORGANIC COTTON | COMFY FIT | 74 | #annigracebaby
And this kids, is why we make practise garments when we purchase new patterns...
Here’s about as much as I care to share with the internet of my Grainline Studios #Archershirt
. It actually fits pretty well but definitely needs longer arms, lots more placket practise less wonky buttons and a sewing machine where the button hole function works properly.
Everyday’s a school day right 🤷🏽♀️
I’m cool with this mismatched earring trend sticking around for a while.
Air drying = good for the clothes and the environment!
As you might know, washing and tumble drying your clothes can damage and tear on them. It also uses energy and has an impact on the environment. For this reason I try to only wash when it's really neccessary.
When it comes to tumble drying, it's something I rarely do. I most often air dry on racks or like in the picture, hanging on hangers. The best thing with drying shirts like this is that you rarely have to iron them! A win-win situation for me and the clothes!
How do you dry your clothes?

Right when I began my sustainability journey, I caved and bought this sweater dress from @asos
because commitment is sometimes really hard! I ended up loving this piece and wearing it quite frequently, casually or dressed up for date night.
I only say this to encourage anyone considering buying more ethically: you don’t have to aim for perfection, at first or ever! If you even cut down on your fast fashion purchases by 25%, that’s STILL progress. If you’re even thinking twice before purchasing an item, yep, still progress.
One of my favorite eco-friendly quotes is: ‘The most sustainable wardrobe is the one you currently own.’ Have any of you begun cutting down on your fast fashion purchases?? Tell me EVERYTHING!!!!
I won yarn chicken! 💪🦅 ... unless, of course, you think that cropped tees are lame and this one just looks like I ran out of yarn... 😅 BUT! I still feel like a winner! 😎
The pattern is "1505-07 Topp med raglan" by #sandnesdesign
. It's a really straightforward raglan tee, with no flourishes whatsoever - no ribbing, not even underarm stitches. I made a size S, which is the second smallest size, because I wanted the oversized, boxy fit and was ready to sacrifice length.
Three skeins of Malabrigo Rios was all it took and it is a beautiful yarn to work with. I didn't alternate skeins, so the result is not as even as could have been, especially since the colours turned out to be unexpectedly unalike... but I kind of love the chaotic patterning. Also, it's so soft! It's sooo soft and silky! A lovely, warm and comfortable winter staple. 😊

- DIY (Do It Yourself)
Celana yang aku pakai ini hasil salah satu DIY yang pernah aku bikin. Aku pernah upload video cara-cara menyulap celana jeans kamu biar gak bosen di youtube-ku. Videonya ada di profile ya.
Sejak belajar zero waste ini berbarengan dengan mengurangi barang di rumah (declutter), sekarang aku nggak terlalu nge-fans sama DIY soalnya seringnya pengen bikin sesuatu terus beli segala macam peralatan habis itu nggak sempat bikin sampai akhirnya lupa. Terus aku ngerasa nge-DIY cuma alasan biar aku nggak jadi menyingkirkan sesuatu dari rumah. Jadi sekarang aku cuma nge-DIY kalau bener-bener butuh sesuatu dan kayaknya bakal lebih hemat kalau di-DIY aja. Jadi hasil DIY-nya memang bakal kepake.
ʷᵉʳᵇᵘᶰᵍ | ᵖʳ-ˢᵃᵐᵖˡᵉ I have no idea what I'm doing. ✨ Und manchmal ist das auch ganz gut so. Yoga und ich, ach, wir haben es irgendwie noch nie so richtig geschafft. Ich bin ein viel zu rastloser Mensch, im Kopf jedenfalls. Alles kreist und dreht sich und steht niemals still. Aber ich spüre: Es dauert nicht mehr lange, und wir versuchen es nochmal miteinander. So ganz ernsthaft und langfristig. Meine Lieblingssportart war lange Jahre Laufen, aber ich bin bereit für Neues, dafür, meinen Körper noch einmal völlig neu kennenzulernen. Angefangen habe ich schon: Manchmal sitze ich genau so ⬆️ da und atme ganz bewusst und versuche, ein paar Minuten an nichts zu denken. Das ist wie ein Geschenk an sich selbst. #beyourownvalentine
hat übrigens die bequemste und weichste Sportkleidung entworfen, die mir jemals an die Haut gekommen ist: aus der Rizinus-Pflanze! Das ist die erste Sportmode überhaupt aus diesem Stoff - er spart Wasser und CO2 und ist mindestens genauso funktional wie andere Materialien. Ich staune immer wieder, was mittlerweile alles möglich ist und will sie gar nicht mehr ausziehen. 🙏🏼
