When I decided to start sharing my love of Sustainable fashion and Accessories with you I knew that I had to be authentic. I wanted to make sure that you understood that I don’t have an endless budget, I’m not out buying bags of clothes every other day. I’m just an ordinary woman with a family and two dogs living your average everyday life with a passion for beautiful, sustainable fashion.
I have Never worn an item once and then never again, that would kill me. I buy pieces that can be worn in different ways, that’s what drew me to this jumpsuit from Zara. I knew when I saw it that there would be loads of occasions I could wear it to just by mixing up a few accessories. The great thing for me about Zara is that it’s really accessable.
I created a quick IGTV video showing the Four looks I created with the different accessories and I would love to know your thoughts.
Look One is simple and paired back.
To start with I have gone for straight sleek hair with my layered necklace from HurleyBurley Jewllery, A pair of two-tone earrings from Etsy Uk. My watch was gifted from MVMT and the shoes are from the H&M Concious Collection. This jumpsuit is made from EcoVeroTMViscose – EcoVeroTM is certified by the EU Ecolabel and meets the strictest Environmental Standards of the EU from the Raw Materials to the Manufacturing to help us take care of the manufacturing. If you are ever struggling when looking for sustainable clothing and you’re not sure about fabrics or materials then you can be sure that Linen is always a good place to start as it itself is a renewable fabric, H&M Concious Collection are making great strides. Mango has a great “Committed” collection made from Sustainable Fabrics. Zara is definitley at the forefront using fabrics like this one above which we will definitley be seeing more of in the near future.
For this look I have dressed the jumpsuit perfectly for a Day to Night event. When I chose my accessories for this look I was thinking Wedding or Summer BBQ. I chose an Off White casual Blazer from H&M’s Concious Collection, it’s smart but casual with the sleeves three-quarter length with a slightly ruched effect. I kept the same accessories and shoes as they worked so well with the Blazer, However I added this stunning Wooden Handmade bag from Zara. The bag also has a strap inside which is just as beautiful and a good lenghth, but I felt the handle with the tortoise-shell effect really deserved to be shown off.
Here I wanted to be a little more playful and went with this White Vegan Leather Jacket that I already owned. I switched the Earrings out for a pair of two-tone hoops from Etsy Uk. The necklace stayed the same but I switched the Mules for a pair of Fitflop soft pink knitted Trainers. I chose another handmade wooden bag for this look from Zara’s current collection, it’s perfect for dressing up any look. It doesn’t have a handle unfortunately but the thin chain strap is really beautiful and again adds that little touch of elegance.
This is my “looking great going out with the girls”. Here I have grabbed my really old and very loved Vegan Leather Jacket ( please don’t ask for a link….) and flat cap to put a different, slightly more casual take on the look. I’ve kept the Fitflop trainers on because they were perfect for the look but I switched out the earrings. I wanted to wear some simple silver hoops with this look otherwise it could be too much with the hat and leather jacket. This wee bag is from another range available at Zara, its made from Rattan which exceptionally sustainable in the “wood” world as it renews in only 5-7 years! it’s lined with linen and has a Bamboo handle. It’s definitely one of my favourites in their collection, it is the perfect size to fit everything you need without being too big for you to put in everything you DON’T …. you know exactly what I mean!
Do you have a favourite look? Mine is Look Three.
