Make This Your Most Glam Summer Yet With These 6 Gorg Sustainable Essentials

May 14, 2018

Summer’s a-coming, y’all. AKA time to start bringing your swimsuits to the front of your underwear drawers, your shorts from behind a stack of jeans, and straightening out dented straw hats. When it comes time to procure these items, I often find myself with a motley pile of ill-fitting, unfavorable pieces. Therefore, I’ve been compiling a list of spot-on summer finds.

I’m a sucker for pretty things. I’m a super-sucker for sustainable pretty things.

Dig into these sustainable pairings and get geared up for a beautiful summer!

3 Gorgeous Sustainable Pairings for Summer 

1. Rika Swimsuit + Welly Bottle

KIKA crystal sunglasses from GIANT VINTAGE – A wonderful way to be sustainably fashionable is to buy vintage items. This site has tons of vintage eyewear for very reasonable prices. Just be sure when scrolling through to select the vintage sunglasses, not the new ones.

She was raised vegetarian and, after two failed attempts at being vegan, the conversion finally stuck in 2015 when she realized not all chocolate contained dairy. After this discovery, Bella fell deep down the endless rabbit hole of vegan cooking, she may or may not have been seen since. Follow Bella on Instagram @thegreatbgadsby.
