Today, I present you with the most Arizona-esque outfit I will ever wear. I’m just not sure it gets more desert-y than this right here. The off the shoulder top with beautiful embroidered details is reminiscent of the Spanish influence and the bright colors are perfect against the brown desert background. I know I don’t break out the really bright colors too often, but how could I not with a top this beautiful?
The top, the shining center of this outfit, is from Victoria Road, the new ethical fashion company you are about to fall in love with. How do I know? Because you can’t not fall in love with a mission like this. Take a minute to read their Ethos HERE. Their clothes are high quality, beautifully made by local artisans, and essentially disrupting the fast fashion industry. If you guys have any knowledge of what is behind the fast fashion industry, it definitely makes you think about your purchases. When I first read Victoria Road’s ethos I literally said to myself “whoa, this is what I believe in, this is what I want to do.” This brand was not only beautiful, but was the push I needed to get to work on a business plan on my own. Seriously, take a minute to look at their lovely unique pieces. They make things in small batches, similar to a true boutique, so don’t let a gorgeous piece get away from you.
You’ve all seen the skirt and handbag before. The skirt is my signature Levi’s skirt and I wear it all the time. The purse, you’ve only seen a few times in Instagram photos and this post. The necklace I’ve been wearing nonstop, but only have worn it in one blog post so far. I can’t wait to style it even more. It’s from My Lavender Crush, a beautiful dainty jewelry company. I’m all about supporting the small businesses.
