My Month in Links | July
July has been the craziest month for me and I know I’m not alone. Call it Mercury Retrograde, call it bad luck; whatever you call it, this month has been trying. Amidst huge travels between Australia and the U.S & therefore no regular routine (this Cap craves stability) , I’ve also been feeling a lot of anxiety about what the rest of the year will hold.
However, even though I haven’t felt like myself in a few weeks, I’m still very much encouraged by all the positive moves for sustainable fashion as of late. Though my morning walks and evening meditation & stretches have been put on the backburner this month, the following links have kept the inspiration flowing for me, which this month, have proved grounding enough.

1. Laura Lombardi Earrings | In a stunning braided design, these Brooklyn-made earrings from Laura Lombardi are what my end-of-summer dreams are made of. Styled with a white blouse and vintage Levi’s, they are the perfect accessory for these warmer & longer nights.
2. Net-A-Porter’s New Sustainable Edit | The new launch by Net-A-Porter, where sustainable brands are featured in a one-stop shop format on the site, is a step in the right direction for the company & an important victory for sustainable fashion. The new platform highlights brands & products that do good by the environment, which will hopefully bring awareness to the impact of how we shop to a wide audience. Even the small steps should be celebrated!
3. Mara Hoffman’s Sustainable Closet | A peek inside the designer’s Brooklyn home and more specifically, her epic closet, which is a thoughtful mix of vintage & designer. In the Coveteur article, she also dives into the brand’s shift towards sustainability in 2015 and the conscious changes that came with it.
4. Inne Studios Handwoven Sandals | I came across this brand on Instagram and their appreciation for slow living & handmade manufacturing quickly made them a company to watch for me. The handcrafted shoes are made with care in the Philippines, with a mix of sustainably-sourced rattan, leather & mango wood.
5. Organic Resort Wear from A Perfect Nomad | Organic & ethical resortwear? Absolutely. A Perfect Nomad’s sweeping kaftans are perfectly bohemian with the just the right amount of elegance. Crafted in India from 100% organic silk, the pieces are the ultimate summer staples; easily taking you from the beach to evening cocktails.
6. Peony’s Sustainable Capsule Collection | Though a big fan of Peony’s latest sustainable swimsuit launch, the campaign imagery was the biggest source of inspiration for me. Hosted at the Hotel Les Roches Rouges on the shores of the French Riviera and shot by the ever-talented Dan Roberts, the photos are as postcard-perfect as the brand’s new swimsuits. The feminine-cut pieces are constructed from Econyl, a fiber made from discarded ocean plastic and are available exclusively through Net-A-Porter.
