Ethical Shopping Wish List for Summer

Ethical Shopping Wish List for Summer

Hope everyone had a fun Fourth of July. Now to get back into the swing of things. This post is pretty self explanatory. I don't like to encourage outrageous amounts of spending even if it's on awesome clothes. As a Texan I have a pretty extensive summer wardrobe but I always like to add a couple pieces every year that can be worn mostly during the summer and some year round. These are some I'm biding my time and saving up for that will give me more outfit options.

 

Everlane: mirco rib tank + cotton striped tee dress

I could realistically put almost everything they come out with on this list but I figured I should hold myself back and stick to some staples I know they make well. I have a 100% human shirt and the fabric and fit is great. I'm thinking of getting one of these tanks since 90 degree days are here and you can never have enough tank tops. The navy and white striped tee dress also would be great for summer and could easily transition into the cooler months with leggings.

 

Grana: silk cami + poplin loose tank

I have their white pima tee which is my new go to. Now I'm eyeing the white poplin loose linen tank. It's cropped enough that I can wear it with high waist shorts or skirts without showing off my whole stomach. They have been teasing me for what feels like forever with those ads for the new swim wear line that finally launched in June. I am so happy with the black high waist swim bottoms. They fit great even though I haven't tested them out in the water yet. Grana is also known for their silk so I'd like to try a silk v-neck camisole for when I feel fancy.

 

Lonely Lingerie: edie bikini top

I have a red lace and velvet bra from Lonely which is great for an unexpected pop of color under a semi transparent top. I love their ad campaigns and pictures on their website featuring women rocking their lingerie who all have different body types. This is technically a black swim top designed so that it looks like one of their bras which is why I'm sure I could rock it as a bra too. Multipurpose clothes for the win.

 

Amour Vert: Kowtow Bay wide leg pant

This brand has a great French easy going aesthetic evidenced by all their stripe shirts which I love because stripes! But I was intrigued by another piece more off the beaten path. I recently discovered, a year or two ago, you can wear wide legged pants made of breathable material in Texas and not drown in sweat every time you go outside. I have a pair which I bought during my bygone days in retail simply because they were black and on sale. Now I'm really reaping their rewards as one of my go to's in the summer for looking put together and comfortable. Bonus these Kowtow pants also have a high waist so I'm ready for them.
