The Conscious Fashionista mission is based on three C's: 

CHANGE attitudes towards fashion and consumption by helping readers

CURATE a closet that works for them and their lifestyle, and 

CULTIVATE their knowledge and curiosity about sustainability and ethics. 

Black and Blush Outfit

Black and Blush Outfit

Coffee shops are my office and even though I don't wear pink, I have to admit that this rose top and outfit looks like a classy yet comfy office outfit…!

Everlane inspired outfit

The Everlane Neck Tank in Rose is made with a Japanese, crease-resistant fabric called GoWeave™. Everlane operates out of Shanghai, but their factory practices couldn’t be more different from other Chinese manufacturers. They have a more design-oriented, quality check process, as well as high employee and ethical standards. The top is very high-quality and flowy, which means you can look professional and be comfortable at the same time.

To offset the light rose color of the top, I paired it with these black trousers from People Tree, made from organic cotton by Assisi Garments, a social enterprise in India. These adorable leather flats are made by low-income women artisans in Palestine. Darzah's mission is to celebrate traditional Palestinian embroidery while providing economic opportunities for women.

I accessorized this look with a geometric necklace from PURPOSE Jewelry, a company that works with victims of human trafficking. The necklace comes in gold or silver, but with the pink tones of the top, I recommend gold!

Then, I topped off the look with a fashionable yet functional modern snap backpack from Everlane (I just love their stuff!). Their nylon bags are made in a factory in Vietnam, where they continue their good work towards fair labor and high quality products.

I love that this outfit shows the versatility of truly conscious fashion. You can look professional, be comfortable, and only purchase pieces that speak to your values. You don’t have to worry about limited clothing options when you “go ethical”!

So… what do you think about this look? Is this something you'd wear? Comment below!
