Christmas Gift Ideas, for Her

FashionMeaghan White

Hello, Lovely friends. Today I’m sharing with you a few holiday gift ideas for that special Lady in your life. All products come from ethically made companies  that I enjoy shopping at. Enjoy!

1.  Leather Pouch, Everlane

“At Everlane, they are not big on trends. They want you to wear their pieces for years, to come. That’s why they source the finest materials and factories for their timeless products.”


2. Tassel Earrings, Starfish Project

“Starfish Project restores hope to exploited women in Asia. We provide life-changing opportunities through our Holistic Care Programs and our social enterprise where women create beautiful jewelry and become managers, accountants, graphic designers, and photographers.”


3.    Herbivore CoCo Rose Body Scrub , Take Care DC

“Take Care offers a selection of effective, natural and independent skincare brands that embody a thoughtful and gentle approach to cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing. Their skincare brands are committed to innovative formulations crafted with only the ingredients needed to be impactful and immersive. “


5.  Olivia Bracelet 

“Their workshops are selected based on their expertise but also based on their compliance with the strict social and environmental standards that they demand. They select workshops carefully, audit them regularly, and visit them on site, however, more than anything else, they establish a sustainable, equitable and human relationship with them. In doing so they become not just our suppliers, but true partners.”

Today’s outfit is from Everlane. Yes, I’m sure you know by now that I am obsessed with them. I wear their pieces almost every day. My top is the Pima Micro Rib, Open V-Neck in black. I would go up a size because it is cut small. The Slouchy Chino Pant are also a favorite of mine to wear to work, although they get wrinkled very fast. Some of you have asked what colors go well with the Covert Green chino. I would recommend neutrals (gray, white, black, tan or navy) since they are olive toned. I pair them with either my black shoes that I’ve had forever from Nordstrom rack, or my tan ankle boots. I like to wear a neck scarf around my neck paired with my favorite coin necklace that I wear everyday.

Leave a comment below if you like this outfit. Anyone else a fan of Everlane?

I don't know about you, but I’ve always loved blue jeans. After recently reading some articles on the devastating effects that the production of blue jeans have on our environment, it has made me want to search for brands that don't follow that same destructive process. To be honest, I did not realize how much water is wasted and how much energy is use, not to mention the chemicals they use during the dying process aren’t good for our skin. I've shared in previous posts that I am trying to buy more ethically made clothing that will last me several years.

I’m happy to share that one shop that I am in love with is Everlane. They are not only made the right way, but they are also something that will last you a long time. You can read more about their jean process here.

Today I am sharing one of my favorite date night outfits. Lately I've been dressing up my jeans, just like the French woman do ;) I've always been drawn to their relaxed, effortless, chic look.

Hope you have a great weekend!
