summer outfit

Our fashion standards have slipped lower than we’d like to admit over the past year. Future ‘where were you in 2020?’ discussions will no doubt one day flood us with memories of pastel and tie dye sweatpants — and that’s okay.

To ease ourselves back into the idea of “dressing up” again, we’ve assembled a simple line-up of sustainable summer basics that are easy to wear and made with love. It’s pieces like these that will carry us through a season of beach dates, al fresco lunches and summer reunions like no other…

DÔEN Palmera blouse Ready to lose the sweats, but not yet go full ‘fancy’? This vintage-esque organic cotton-blend voile top will do the trick. We love Doen for just this type of timeless piece, while the brand doesn’t consider themselves ‘sustainable’ per se, they have amazing initiatives in place to measure and reduce their environmental impact. Pair the belted pintucked blouse with denim of any kind for early summer evenings out or to pack for day-to-night adventures while road-tripping. SHOP NOW

Janessa Leone  hat |  A wide brimmed hat isn’t just an accessory, it’s a skincare necessity. While we’re all for a good dose of vitamin D, if you’ll be sitting by the pool or on the beach mid-day for hours on end, a hat like this one from beloved L.A. designer, Janessa Leone, will add a layer of protection after that heavy duty application of sunscreen.

This sweet, but simple one-shouldered top is made with organic cotton-jersey and just right for those al fresco bottles of biodynamic rose we plan on popping all summer.
