While in London last month, I met up with old and new friends alike. We walked all over town, had some coffee and of course I grabbed the chance to take some outfit pictures. I found this culotte at a vintage store in Leiden, one of a few great purchases I made there. To be honest, culotte trousers are a little bit out of my comfort zone. I usually don’t venture far from my trusted skinny jeans or skirts. Anything that’s midi or well, a culotte, hasn’t made it’s way into my closet yet.
Happy Tuesday! Today I want to introduce you to Lauren from ethical fashion blog Chic Éthique. I found her blog while I was looking for new ethical style bloggers to follow and instantly fell in love! She shares beautiful outfits, gives tips on how to get more wear out of your outfits and makes ethical fashion accessible for everyone. These are all big favourites in my book! Today, Lauren shares her favourite outfit with us and tells us more about her views on fair fashion. Enjoy!
I’m a piano teacher by day and a fashion blogger over on my blog Chic Éthique by night! I did my university work in classical piano, but I’ve always had a love for style. My blog became my outlet for that love, and I enjoy posting about the outfits I create from my capsule wardrobe.
Summer is approaching, I can feel it in the air! The days are longer again and ice cream season has officially started. As I told you, I make a list of clothes to buy at the beginning of each season. This summer, I am looking for fun and light-weight looks to make it a beautiful summer season full of great memories. This is my fair fashion summer wishlist, if you’re looking for some inspiration as well!
+ A fun and light-weight blouse: I’ve recently rediscovered wearing fun blouses again! Since I work at an office, I am looking for summer looks that feel cool on my skin and still aren’t too revealing. A light blouse perfectly fits the bill, and this one from Thinking MU has sushi on it, so it’s definitely on my to-buy list ;)
+ An oversized white blouse: On days when I don’t want to wear sushi, white oversized blouses always do the trick. They look great with tan skin and just a bit of golden jewellery. I just ordered this one from JAN ‚N JUNE, it’s extremely comfortable!
+ A grey t-shirt: Another summertime staple. Yet I only just ordered my first one: A simple, grey and oversized t-shirt. You can wear it with a know and a skirt, or with shorts and red lipstick. So simple and yet so pretty!
+ A block-printed t-shirt: I love simple statement t-shirts, that are slightly boxy and look great with some fun jewellery. This one from Po-Em is handmade and just screams summer to me!
+ A statement tee: Another trend I am embracing this summer – and I’m so glad my fair fashion favourites are too! I’m gonna start with this Beach Please shirt, because that’s probably going to be my thought all summer long!
+ The classic: Stripes, stripes, stripes. Striped shirts aren’t on my list this year (I stocked up last summer). Still, I needed to include them here! Stripes are such a summer staple for. People Tree puts out some new shirts every season and they always look great.
Today I have the great pleasure of introducing Laura from The OGNC to you on Everlasting Apparel! Her blogazine is a beautiful collection of fair fashion, natural beauty and recipes that seriously make your mouth water. She’s a student from Hannover and a fashion blogger who decided to switch to fair fashion a few months ago. Find out more about her and her Everlasting pieces below!
Hi, my name is Laura, I’m from Berlin and I’m 23 years old. At the moment, I study Technical Documentation in Hanover, Germany. I’ve been thinking a lot about mass consumption over the last couple of months. In December 2016 it finally happened. Without any second thoughts, I completely sweeped out all of my cosmetics products I had and gave them away – for free.
Next, I spent some time researching sustainable fashion and decided to buy only second hand products or fair fashion from then on. My old blog actually talked a lot about conventionally produced products, so I launched „The OGNC“ in April 2017 instead. The OGNC deals with natural and organic cosmetics, fair fashion, interviews and soon with a green lifestyle.
Have you guys heard of Kleiderrebell yet? It’s pretty cool: Instead of buying new clothes, you can borrow them on their homepage. You can keep them as long as you want and only have to pay a monthly fee for every item. I’ve wanted to try it for ages and a few weeks ago, I finally grabbed the chance!
Shortly before the seasons change, I often get really bored with my closet. I feel like I’ve been wearing the same five outfits for weeks on end and just crave a change. Also, I really wanted to have something nice to wear on my weekend in Berlin. So this time, instead of investing in new fair fashion pieces, I borrowed a few from the Kleiderrebell page.
