Around Town with a Conscience!

Today, I'm all about this girly Sunday look but, of course, I had to add the jean jacket wrapped around my waist to sprinkle the style with some bohemian chillness. :p

All brands are vegan, eco-friendly and charity-loving!! See below for details. Happy blissful Sunday, babes!!

Melissa Vegan Flats: Yes!! Another beautifully designed pair of Melissa shoes! I don't think I'll ever get tired of talking about and promoting this brand. Every design is made from recycled plastic and, as I mentioned in a September post, Melissa also reuses 99% of water and waste and recycles overstock models from old collections and uses that same plastic for new designs. Plus, every pair of shoes smells like CANDYYY!!! :D

Harveys Eco-friendly Cross-body Sophia Bag: This bag!!! This was one of the first models I received from Harveys over 1.5 years ago and it's just so impeccably designed that I doubt it will ever go out of style. Its details are flawless and the color goes well with any outfit: jeans, skirt, dress, shorts. In case you guys haven't heard of Harveys yet, this is a brand created by husband and wife in California using recycled car seatbelts (exterior) and recycled plastic bottles (interior lining).  Use code: Waterthruskin for 10% discount!! <3 

Symbology Fair-trade Skirt: A line that combines fashion with giving back. Each one-of-a-kind piece is handmade in Asia and helps empower women across the globe. The goal of Symbology is to merge old traditions into the modern fashion world while employing marginalized artisans and connecting women worldwide. You can shop this skirt and more planet-loving products at Nomad Tribe in Miami. One of the stores I adore!!!

A Panama Hat with a Heart.

Mondays are all about looking forward and this panama hat brand has me doing just that! As you guys already know, I created WaterThruSkin to inspire all of you to live and shop more mindfully. More consciously. To look for brands that are doing much more than getting profitable with our purchases. Brands that care about our planet and want to make a difference. This panama hat brand, Artesano, is one of those. A brand that is not only eco-friendly and fair trade but one that also helps build thriving, poverty-free communities across 19 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean by partnering with TECHO; a youth led non-profit organization that seeks to overcome poverty in slums, through the joint work of families living in extreme poverty and youth volunteers. It promotes community development through social inclusion programs as housing, education and more. As if that were not enough, Artesano's hat designs are beyond beautiful, colorful and chic! Click here to get look and shop my favorite designs and the line I wore on my trip to review another eco-hotel in Nicaragua. 


Not your ordinary Monday.

Monday's mood. ;) I felt like taking my hippie look to a different level today and added some color to it along the way. The best part of it? Every piece is vegan and charity-loving! Who said Mondays have to be boring?!! 

Vegan Leather Gladiator Sandals. I've talked about these over and over again because they are one of a kind!!! Vegan leather that does not look like plastic. Boho-Chic, comfortable and cruelty-free!

Free People Shorts. Not much to say about these other than: we all need a good pair of denim shorts! :p 

Boho Blouse. Mine was sold out but I found one similar to it which looks even better!!!

Free People Fringe Collar. One of my jewelry obsessions! Beautiful and it adds a strong boho touch to every look. 

Handmade Boho Clutch: I'm in love with this clutch not only because of it's perfect design and colors but because it is handmade, unique and empowers women in Asia.
