I believe we can all have an incredible, authentic sense of style when we become truly eco-conscious in our choices, and love ourselves.
We walked Seattle city yesterday, what fun! It did mean I needed some trusty warm layers as the wind whipped through the street or when the sunshine didn’t quite reach the sidewalks. My ‘new’ (pre-loved) Gucci bag from @fashionphile was gifted to me by my hubby of 19 years! #capsulewardrobe #styleover40
This is comfort personified for me! Both in colour range, style and weight these pieces are speaking to me this Fall. Sweater was bought years back in Amsterdam, is 100% cotton and so too is my trench, made and bought in South Africa. #veganstyle #veganmom #styleover40 #buylesschoosewell #curatedcloset
This animal print blouse is a great example of a trend piece which I bring out each Autumn - the print is subtle enough and the styling classic that it works every Fall. I bought it about 8 years ago from @mango - before knowing the harmful effects these fast fashion retailers have on our environment as well as supporting unfair labour practices. It’s also silk (pre vegan days), so the best I can do is get the very most wear and enjoyment from it at this stage. #styleover40 #buylesschoosewell #consciousconsumer #animalprint #capsulewardrobe #liveandlearn #repeatwear
17 years I’ve had this classic @joborkett_fashions long-length waistcoat. Thanks to @joborkett_fashions for having made classic styles and quality pieces that last. My lifestyle and aesthetic is nowadays less structured, so it’s time to pass it onto another appreciative wearer! #lastingstyle #thrift #donateyourwardrobe #buylesschoosewell #styleover40
Nothing better than taking in the sweet smell of the forest’s fresh air! Today, as a family, doggies included, we all got to enjoy a rather strenuous steep climb and easier decent. #ilovewashington #outdoors #issaquah #veganfamily #wanderwashington
19 years ago today I wore my wedding dress made by my Mom, which together we designed. I feel such gratitude for her talent, skill and kindness in giving me this gift. I have since let go of the dress, as the memories are in my heart. Swipe left to see Mom’s outfit and that of my dearest matron of hounour, @gillie_gernetzky. Again both stitched by Mom. #gratitude #sewnbymom #weddingdress #buylesschoosewell #homemade #onceoffdesign #weddinganniversary
