Outfit post two from Hawaii! This was one of my more casual outfits that was perfect for exploring around town. I've generally always been a statement piece kind of girl but school has instilled in me a newfound appreciation for classic, staple items. When you're at school till 4 AM some days, anything to make mornings easier makes a world of difference!

The Top & Shorts:
Both these pieces were secondhand purchases from Vinted! I got the top for $9 and the shorts for $10. I'm especially happy with the Levi's find because its a bit challenging to find my size in vintage Levi's at thrift stores and the ones I find at the mall seem to always be $60+!
I got so many compliments around Hawaii for this tote which is by Urbana Sacs! Urbana Sacs makes handmade, washable paper totes, backpacks, and storage sacs. Yes, you read that correctly, the bags are indeed washable, and on top of that they are ultra durable. I personally love to bring my larger art supplies to school by reusing simple brown paper bags, but they do break after a few uses—so this is an awesome invention in my opinion!
Each bag is individually handmade in LA and you can customize them by choosing what color you want the body and the straps to be. Another sustainability point is that their material is harvest through cultivation rather than deforestation :)
This tote is especially great for farmers market or trips to the grocery store in style!
The Gladiator Sandals:
I'm super loyal to Bhava's vegan shoes—they are everything I can ask for in my ideal shoes: sustainable, ethically made, edgy, and a practical heel height! Their new gladiator sandals are right up my alley—I just love strappy shoes! The exterior is made from hand painted cork, and the interior has an eco-suede lining as well as a cork insole. And like all Bhava pieces, these were handmade by artisans in Alicante, Spain.
Thanks for visiting! :)
