An Honest Rothy's Flats Review (+ $20 Off Your 1st Pair!)

OVERVIEW

Rothy’s, a sustainable shoe brand based in San Francisco, seemed to have gone viral overnight. As of May 2019, I see women outside left and right wearing #rothysinthewild, almost daily now. They certainly have a unique product line - sustainably-made, moisture-wicking, machine-washable woven flats and shoes that are made out of recycled plastic bottles. But is it worth all the hype? Based on a personal need for a new pair of pointed black flats, I jumped on the Rothy’s wagon and gave them a try, and am now here with an honest review of their pointed toe flats. I’m hoping this review will be helpful in deciding whether or not Rothy’s is right for you. If you already own a pair, I also share a few of my current favorites, as well as pro-tips on washing and caring for your Rothy’s!

Brand Spotlight: We Are Kindred | An Australian Fashion Label All About Bohemian Luxury

Brand Spotlight: We Are Kindred | An Australian Fashion Label All About Bohemian Luxury

Excited to share a Consciously Chic brand spotlight today on an Australian fashion label called We Are Kindred!

WHAT MAKES WE ARE KINDRED SO SPECIAL?

We Are Kindred is a bohemian luxury label founded in 2013 in Australia, by two sisters named Lizzie and Georgie Renkert. With We Are Kindred, you can feel good about your purchase knowing that they plant a tree for every product sold, through their Seed the Change program. This helps to offset carbon emissions. To put it into perspective, 1 tree stores 1,250 kgs of carbon, which is equivalent to offsetting a flight from LA to London. 16 trees can offset carbon emissions of an average American household over a 30 year period!

No matter the season, I love wearing clean, classic colors with a touch of vintage style in my outfits. I’m wearing a color palette of white, light taupe, nude, and olive green in today’s look. With a Good Apparel mock-neck top and We Are Kindred romantic lace shorts as my base, I layered on a flowy olive jacket from La Fille Colette and light taupe booties from Rag & Bone. While the Janessa Leone bolero hat gives off vacation-vibes, this Steamline Luggage vanity bag is what really transforms this outfit into a retro-modern look. This will be a go-to outfit for Spring and Summer this year!

Today’s edit is all about mixing different shades of neutrals. As the seasons change and bring on a new wave of seasonal color palettes in the fashion world, neutrals don’t go away. That’s a huge reason I love buying and wearing neutral clothing - they pair well with nearly all colors and can be worn year-round! When you pair different neutral shades together (think white, tan, taupe, brown), they blend nicely and help to make any accent colors pop.
