This ultra-soft pink cashmere cardigan from Skin and this organic cotton dress (available in nine different colors) make for the perfect loungewear combination from autumn to summer and everything in between. Supporting sustainable, woman-owned brands is so important to me in a world of fast fashion because, unlike fast fashion conglomerates, I know when I purchase something from Skin, the people on the other side of the transaction notice and celebrate it. I’m not just another drop in the bucket. Life needs more celebrating, don’t you think?
On our visit to breathtaking Austria last year, I first encountered the luxurious, sustainability-minded, family-owned brand Frauenschuh. With impeccable cuts, incomparable Alpine-inspired style, and incredibly high-quality materials, it was love at first sight. When I discovered that one of my favorite high-end retailers, Saint Bernard, sold not only Frauenschuh but other great brands like Marysia, Bogner, and ON, I was thrilled that I could prepare for any journey, from the beach to the jungle and beyond from a single store.
