Valentine’s Day weekend has finally arrived!
Some of you might think a single lady like moi loving Valentine’s Day is just not right. But, I love the whole atmosphere this day brings. There’s so much devotion and lovingkindness in the air!
To bring this series of Valentine’s Day outfit inspiration to a close, I’m featuring an outfit that would be perfect for, let’s say, a night out at a trendy pizzeria OR a day at an artisan market, such as Dose Market, which is exactly where I’ll be with one of my favorite gals!
I wear this Raven + Lily top a little toooooooo much. When I decided to become a more thoughtful consumer, Raven + Lily was one of the first companies I learned about. It’s a certified B-Corporation, which is a huuuuuuge deal. It means Raven + Lily meets rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. For example, Raven + Lily currently employs over 1,500 marginalized women who it pays fair trade wages and offers access to health care and education with the long term goal of having these women exit the cycle of poverty for themselves and their families.
These black distressed AG jeans are also a staple of mine. I admire AG for being a socially and environmentally conscious jean brand. For example, they cut water consumption by 50% and reduce the use of chemicals and energy by using Ozone Technology in their production. They’ve saved millions of gallons of water since applying the technique in 2010.
The animal print bag by Ceri Hoover has become my everyday bag. I purchased it on a trip I took to Nashville with my girlfriends. I love wearing this bag because animal print is my jam AND it reminds me of that trip. What’s more: Ceri Hoover employs American artisans to handcraft its bags from materials sourced from the world’s finest leather vendors.
Thanks to you, thoughtful fashionista, for checking out this blog series. I hope you have the loveliest Valentine’s Day with those who truly warm your heart!
With a lot of heart,
