Hi everyone,

How has your weekend been? Not sure about you but I am certainly more careful these days - to purchase clothing items made from natural materials and reading clothing labels more closely to hold out from synthetic materials such as polyester which harms the environment from the large amount of chemical waste it produces during the manufacturing and production process. There is obviously a big contention about how ethical cotton is.. but I guess I will look into that a little more and update you shortly. 

Meanwhile, am loving this gorgeous Audrey Sleeveless cotton top from @naladesigns , which is also available at @thewyldshop_joochiat with its  Heaven Lotus design. This is one such great buy I keep mix and matching, pairing with various bottoms especially in the hot tropical and humid weather. The button down detail at the back is cute and the large floral print adds that retro vibe to the top. And if you have been following me closely, I am certainly going retro these days. Another way to keep fashion sustainable is to recycle items in your wardrobe. Buy vintage.

Also supporting another environmentally conscious retailer and designer @maishaconcept, is this cool,  chic and comfortable ( 3C) Chaand cotton skirt. The straps which ties up the sides adds that twist to an otherwise regular maxi skirt. The handprinted patterns on the skirt makes it also very unique where no two skirts look exactly the same. Slight imperfections make the outfit even more original and authentic. 

Pairing this skirt with the Audrey top and matching it with a 1960s midollino vintage bag from @avintagetale, creates a retro yet contemporary outfit which one can trend both on weekends and even on weekdays. I love mix and matching prints which most people are scared to do as the clash in prints sometimes may not necessarily work out fashionably but as I have always said " Fashion is about having fun"!!  Throw a white blazer over, high heels and let the side straps down for the skirt and one can take this look into the office. Pull up the skirt's straps, swop the heels for sandals or slides, sans jacket and a weekend look is ready to go.

Hope you enjoy this outfit and see you soon!

Love,
Simone xoxo

    1. Thanks Jess. Love mix and matching prints! Need to get out of my comfort zone of always mixing prints with solid bold colours. Getting too boring!

    1. OMG Allie. You telling me! I mean it's hard enough trying to be fashionably conscious but the lure of fast fashion at a lower budget certainly isn't helping. Hence... a tough call. But so worth it on many levels.
