TROPICAL DREAM

Monday, December 05, 2016

During our time on Oahu, one of the most memorable things I got to see was the 70th annual Aloha Festivals Parade (more on that in my full trip round-up post!) This was the outfit I wore to the parade—light, tropical, and featuring some amazing, made in Hawaii fashion too! 

Read on for full outfit and sustainability details ♥


Organic Cotton Dress c/o Synergy Clothing
Handmade Arm Cuffs from Etsy
Handmade Embroidered Clutch c/o Machine Machine
Vegan Cork Sandals c/o Bhava


The Dress:
Lots of things I love about this dress from Synergy Clothing—organic cotton (GOTS certified too,) hand-stitched details, and an adjustable drawstring waist for the perfect fit. I have a thing for mini dresses so I decided to cut mine short + I've always loved raw hems in garments—in this case, it gives this dress a delicate touch.

This dress is also dyed with low-impact dyes and as per usual with all Synergy pieces, was ethically made in Nepal.

The Clutch:
This playful clutch is by Machine Machine, an ethical and handmade brand based in Kauai, Hawaii. The designer, Shannon Hiramoto, is the one who sews all the pieces! Her pieces have such a dreamy and cheerful aesthetic to them and the way her store is designed and decorated is absolutely reflective of that. It's such a happy space and definitely a must-go for anyone visiting Kauai.

This clutch has been handmade with vintage embroidered linens that Shannon has collected over the years and then ended up reworking into these one-of-a-kind bags! The clutch comes with a vegan crossbody strap so you can wear it as a bag too. I especially love the pom pom trim and the pop of color in the tassel. This bag has a very "comforting" vibe to it as well—it's reminiscent of a favorite quilt!

The Sandals:
The only heels I brought to Hawaii were my Bhava ones :) Here I am wearing my vegan, cork Alden booties again! They really do match with everything! Bhava shoes are made with vegan and recycled materials and are ethically handmade in Spain by artisans. 



Hope you have a lovely Monday!
xo, Jennifer
