Ethical Outfit: Never Enough Stripes

Sometimes when I’m in one of those introspective moods, I ask myself profound, all-consuming questions such as, “Can one ever wear enough stripes?” But I realized that I do the fudge I want and there is no limit to the number of pieces in an outfit that must be stripy.

This outfit just kinda happened. The wonderfully striped Edun top (Resort 2016) was made ethically in Kenya. The straw bag, monogrammed with my initials, is from Kayu. I took it everywhere with me during my week in Hawaii and it’s sturdy. Oh, and it’s got pom poms, which, apparently, is also my thing. The bag is handcrafted by women in the Philippines, and Kayu works with new immigrant women in San Francisco through their custom monogram program.

These comfy slip-on espadrilles are by Maison De L’espadrille, handcrafted in France. Sunglasses are Saint Laurent, made in Italy. The denim shorts are from Urban Outfitter’s Urban Renewal line, which recycles vintage clothes into modern pieces. I bought the rose quartz earrings while in Nashville from a little shop called Algeria, made by a local artisan. Rose quartz is a healing stone for unconditional love.
