Summer Sale Alert

I’ve had a slow posting schedule this summer due to kids and swimming and, well, LIFE, but I had to type out a quick post to tell you guys about some awesome sales happening right now. Brands with asterisks (*) denote affiliate links; I want to be transparent about the ways I earn money through posting, so know that if you see ***stars*** I may earn money or credit from that company.

These first two sales are ultra time sensitive, including a 4-hour flash sale on Monday:

*** FASHIONABLE Online Warehouse Sale*** — TOMORROW, July 17, from 11am to 3pm central standard time, FASHIONABLE will be offering crazy good discounts on their bags and jewelry, plus some great deals on their new line of shoes!  Yep, four hours only!

***Nisolo Flash Sale*** — Cool-kid brand Nisolo will be offering 40% off select styles Monday, July 17, and Tuesday, July 18. Plus, use my code AFFILIATEFLASH17 for an extra 10% off!

A few other brands are rockin’ some great sales this week — I’m not sure when they end, so I would check them out ASAP.

***PACT Summer Clearance Sale*** — $20 organic cotton maxi dresses and $9 fair trade tees? Yes, please! PACT sales are good chances to stock up on some wardrobe basics.

Synergy Organic Clothing — Synergy usually has a robust sale section. Right now some of their offerings include tanks, cardigans, and flowy dresses made in Synergy’s signature organic, fair trade style.

Raven & Lily End of Season Summer Sale — I heard Raven & Lily founder Kirsten Dickerson speak during Fashion Revolution Week, and I was impressed with the depth of research that goes into their fair labor standards. Their end of season sale is a great way to get to know the brand.

Summer Dreams

This post contains affiliate links to support this site. 

The weather is warm, school is almost out, and I’m thinking about summer fashion. Check out the outfit of my dreams below, followed by some more realistic options.

Summer Dreams

My dream outfit for summer adventures is this fair trade shirt dress from UK-based Bibico, a handmade fedora and a beach tote from Mar Y Sol, and Huarache sandals from Nisolo.



Summer Plans

Considering I’m a mom of boys with casual days of gardening and neighborhood adventures in the plans, a more practical outfit for me would be a locally screen-printed tank from Project 615, ethically made sneakers from Etiko, and fair trade shorts from Liz Alig and Love Justly.



Summer Reality

But what will I actually be wearing this summer? Probably yoga pants like this pair from PACT, a Nashville Predators shirt (Project 615), and flip flops (Etiko). Real life here, folks.

What summer adventures do you have planned? Will your fashion be festival-ready or homebody cool?

Happy Star Wars Day!

In December 2015, the Star Wars universe got a new movie — and a new heroine. And her boots are ethically made.

Rey’s signature boots are from Po-Zu, a shoe brand specializing in sustainable materials and ethical manufacturing. Po-Zu’s design materials include chromium-free leather, Piñatex, wool, and organic cotton. Their Portugal-based manufacturing facility strives to pay workers fair wages in a toxin-free, low-waste environment.

Today, Po-Zu is launching a co-branded Star Wars line. In addition to the Rey Boots, they have designs inspired by Chewbacca, Poe, Finn, Stormtroopers, and — my personal favorite — BB-8.

The shoes, available in men’s, women’s, and children’s sizes, are launching for pre-order TODAY and will ship in August.

Ethical options are rare when it comes to licensed products. Kudos to Lucasfilm/Disney for leading the way into the future by collaborating with a sustainable fashion brand.
