Fair trade fringe for the win...

Oh jeepers... is it just me or has this week been exceptionally intense?  What with the realization that I only have 34 more paid days of work ahead of me and NO clue where I'm going to go next, it seems like the time I spend at work has slowed down and my free time has sped up so fast that accomplishing anything productive (you know... like making career plans and figuring out where to live next while maintaining an etsy shop, blog, and trying to save the world...) is near impossible.  

All I can say is thank GOODNESS for adorable coffee houses, fringe, and the current motivator in my life (no... it's actually not coffee, despite it having become a bit of a crutch)... sustainable fashion.  

Yes my friends, while the work day was extraordinarily difficult, I think it was my fabulous dress (a fab find from thredUP), these fringe boots, and gorgeous new handmade backpack from Ixchel Triangle that really gave me a boost.  Even if I felt exhausted, I got a ton of compliments on my outfit and that kept me going!  

For real... with a backpack like this (handmade in Guatemala... I'll share some more deets in an upcoming #SustainableSunday post)...  how could  you not feel like a bohemian goddess/rockstar?

    1. Thank you so much! I was so pleasantly surprised to find that this dress was actually a woven fabric and not just a printed knit! I love it!

    1. Thanks! I would have loved to wear the dress on it's own, but it was so darn cold... I needed to steal an extra layer from my mum!

    1. Thank you! I may try to pair it with a kimono and gladiator sandals the next time I wear it and see how that changes the look!

    I also find myself at a crossroad right now, and I am trying to figure out my next move.
    Have a great weekend!
