Brand Spotlight: Frank & Oak

Brand Spotlight: Frank & Oak

Hey everyone!

Sharing a brand spotlight on a Canadian fashion label called Frank & Oak today :)

WHAT MAKES FRANK & OAK SO SPECIAL?

Frank & Oak is a respectable conscious fashion brand, not only because they produce stylish, quality clothing pieces, but also because they do this while striving to use sustainable fabrics and practices throughout their supply chain.

Since its launch in 2012, the brand has made huge strides in reducing their carbon footprint. For one, Frank & Oak has partnered with a sustainable denim production facility in Dubai, called Hydro-Less Laundry, to create eco-friendly, water-saving denim. They use nano-bubble and Ozone-wash technologies to reduce water waste. Utilizing these methods, Frank & Oak is able to reduce energy consumption by 79%, chemical use by 50%, and water usage by 95%. How awesome is that?! Given that it normally takes thousands of gallons of water to produce a standard pair of jeans, these percentages are certainly applaud-worthy. Secondly, Frank & Oak utilizes organic and sustainable fibers to produce its clothing, including low eco-impact cotton, compostable and biodegradable Lenzing Tencel fibers, and recycled polyester. I geeked over learning about Lenzing Tencel fiber, which includes sourcing wood from sustainable eucalyptus plantations, through a zero-waste process that uses 20 times less water than regular cotton!

Winter 2017 Style Favorites

Winter 2017 Style Favorites

Hi everyone, hope you’re all enjoying the holidays! Sharing a few of my favorite winter style pieces in today’s outfit post. 

If you’re looking for a shirt dress that you can wear in the fall and winter seasons, I’ve found the perfect piece for you. This red plaid shirt dress from PrettyLittleThing can be worn alone with booties on not-so-cold days, or with opaque tights, cold-weather accessories, and over-the-knee boots on chillier days. My favorite part about it is the high-low ruffle hem, which gives it a flirty, flouncy feel to it.

Happy New Year, everyone!

Can you believe it's already 2017? Hope you had a merry holiday and that you gave yourself some time to reflect on the past year. I'm so ready to live out 2017 by putting in more time and attention into what matters to me (including this blog and all of you wonderful readers :)!

Today I'm sharing some quick outfit inspiration based on the winter weather here in San Francisco. Although we don't get to enjoy beautiful winter white snow in the city, we also don't have to worry about being extremely cold. My gorgeous friend Thy and I shot this look on a day that wasn't too chilly, so I was able to get away with layering a Banana Republic faux fur vest over my blouse and some cute booties from rag & bone!
