As promised, here are a few ways to get the look {fairly} from Friday's post:


  • This sheer layered shirt dress by Carrie Parry is available from Juno and Jove. I would layer a chunky sweater or cardigan over it and add ankle boots to transition it to fall. Carrie Parry, btw, is produced ethically and locally in the New York garment district, sourcing environmentally conscious materials and textiles while supporting artisanal communities worldwide
  • Bikini is by Karla Coletto (made in the USA using fine Italian fabrics). This little number is here for that last jaunt to the beach, to the islands, or to the pool.
  • Vintage scarf in tan, cream and rust is available on Etsy from One Cozy Nest. This piece will transition easily into fall and even winter. It's perfect for tying onto your purse, wrapping around your hair or even tying around your waist as a belt. 
  • Dyed with mud from the Mekong River, this 100% silk fair trade Ikat scarf is a co-creation by Gianna Driver and artisan women. It’s a simplified version of very intricate ikat designs found throughout many indigenous Lao communities...and it's on sale for $40 :) There are more beautiful, fair trade options HERE.
  • Spaghetti strap modal dress is made in the USA by Amour Vert-- learn more about their eco-friendly production and fabric choices here, then snap up this dress to wear as a beach  cover-up that easily transitions to dinner and drinks.
  • No wardrobe is complete without a crisp white oxford (or three), and this one by American Apparel is perfect.
  • Skinny vintage belt with gold details is available on Etsy from Frisco Fresh in Florida.
  • Crochet vintage belt is available from The Vintagerie on Etsy (San Francisco).
