Plastic Alternatives

Plastic! Yes, we all know the very real side effects of plastics and our oceans. I struggle with removing plastic from my household. How do I live without Ziploc bags and plastic wrap? They are so damn convenient for just about everything when it comes to the kitchen. One needs to break the habit and look for other options. Straws, no problem.

Here are few plastic alternatives. All can be found on Amazon. I have yet to try all of these but I am heading there. Sooner rather than later. One hopes that even the smallest changes amount to something.

Sabah Style

Love them! Add these Turkish slippers to your summer wardrobe. The perfect everyday slides. Simplicity! No breaking in required. I was lucky enough to check them out in person when they recently traveled through Boston. Sabahs come in two styles: Sabah (leather loafer) or Baba (slip-on). I tried both. Babas in the cognac color easily compliment any style. A neutral tone that will only get better with time. Favorites for years to come. Ones that have earned a space in my suitcase for this summer’s travels.

Sabahs are handmade shoes crafted by a family team in southeast Turkey based on a traditional shoemaking method. A perfect partnership created by Mickey Ashmore who lives in NYC. They come in a variety of beautiful colors. Order online or follow their insta feed for pop up shops near you. Sabah

Back With A Breezy Style

Something for those hot summer days that is just perfect for your summer wardrobe. Check out Loup Charmant from NYC. A company I stumbled across recently and immediately fell for their lovely flowy style. Airy feminine dresses to be worn anytime of day. Summertime dressing to me should not be fussy or require accessories besides your sunnies and hat. I also love how a pair of Nike slides, tennies, or stappy sandals can easily transform these beauties from sporty to sweet. Effortless dressing from Loup Charmant seems perfect to me. There is beautiful selection so good luck picking your favorite. Happy Summer ladies!

COS Style

From time to time, I browse the COS website.  They offer fresh classic silhouettes.  I personally like their clean aesthetic.  I have rounded up a few updated modern pieces for those sunny days.

Three basic and easy to wear tops.  The white blouse has a sweet neckline but not too girly.  The navy button down shirt is a slim fit with a bit of a longer sleeve that would look nice cuffed a couple of times for a casual out and about look.  The basic tank needs no reason.

Four perfect skirts that will take you from day to evening.  The first white skirt is a lovely A line style with an unexpected side slit.  The beige skirt sits on the hips with a feminine hem line that is oh so chic.  The vibrant green skirt looks so crisp!  Loving the last white skirt with its folded over waistband and straight fit.  It is relaxed, casual, and weekend ready.

The one and done way of dressing!  Jumpsuits are no fuss and can be dressed up or down.  An oversized blazer can instantly transform this casual day look straight into an evening out with friends.
