One of the things that has been lacking in my closet for years is quality loungewear that is also really cute! My loungewear used to be comprised of clothing that's no longer my style that I just wear around the house, but after reading The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo (this book has seriously transformed my organization habits!), I realized that loungewear can have quite the effect on one's mood. She says "This time at home is still a precious part of living. Its value should not change just because nobody sees us ... Precisely because no one is there to see you, it makes far more sense to reinforce a positive self-image by wearing clothes you love."
I definitely feel better, more put-together, and happier when I'm wearing cute loungwear, and in turn that does make me more productive at home. This outfit of course also easily works for going out (especially when traveling) so it's a win-win though! Read on for full outfit and sustainability details!

This dainty wave pendant is the second custom piece that Michelle from Lilacs in the Sun made for me! The beach is a very therapeautic place for many of us, and keeping our beaches clean and preserving marine biodiversity are both things I care deeply about, which is why I wanted a pendant to remind me of the ocean! All Lilacs in the Sun jewelry is handmade by the designer, Michelle, in California.
The Tank and Leggings:
Both the tank and leggings are from Santa Cruz based company, Synergy Clothing. They make organic cotton and fair trade clothing that is not only ethically made but is dyed with low-impact dyes!
I can't get enough of their leggings especially (See how I styled a burgundy pair in a past outfit)! I also quite like that the fit is a mid-rise and that there's ruching at the bottoms. As a person who much prefers leggings over more structured pants like jeans, these are perfect for everyday use for me, both at home and out. They also make pretty rad graphic tops in general too! :)
