Conscious Travel Look!

It's been a while since I last uploaded a post focused on sustainable fashion. To make it up to you, I'll be sharing several conscious outfits in the next few days. Starting with this one! I wore it during my trip to Vieques, Puerto Rico. 

This fair-trade dress is colorful, beautiful, light enough for those hot summer days, and handmade by artisans in India using the traditional technique of block-printing (stamping on fabrics with natural dyes and recycled wood blocks). I usually wear a vegan leather belt around my waste to make the dress more fitted. In this case, I wore a belt made of recycled fabrics by the same brand. 

MP fair-trade earrings: handmade by women in Colombia using beads and traditional beading techniques. These artisans get paid above average wages and work in human conditions. 

Conscious Bohemian. Always!

A month ago I had the opportunity to be part of the most beautiful event planning photoshoot I’ve seen in these 28 years of mine. A natural, eco-friendly, bohemian scene taken out of one of my dreams and I, of course, got to dress like a bohemian princess for it! You guys can read the entire story here, or scroll below to read about the conscious fashion brands I wore. xo
