What I'm wearing ~ Nautical

Want to catch the wave of nautical themed clothing this summer AND be eco friendly?  Well we have you covered!

Just in from Amour Vert we have super cute summer tops and dresses in Organic Cotton. OC maintains the soft and classic feel of cotton without using any toxic pesticides or synthetic fertilizers.  Conventional cotton uses 10% of the world's pesticides and 25% of all insecticides!

Not only does Amour Vert use OC it also uses a unique blend of the most sustainable fabrics available and only use low impact and vegetable based dyes.  Their designs are made to reduce waste in production as well!! 

Oh and did I mention everything is made in the US?  :)

OC Amour Vert Claudia Wrap Cardigan Navy/White ~ $88
White basic cami ~ $14

OC Amour Vert Allison Oversized V-Neck White / Red  ~ $58
paired with Sanctuary Clothing Scout shorts in Grotto ~ $62 , White faux leather tote ~ $28  and red shades ~ $14

 OC Amour Vert Mary Maxi Tube Dress in White / Navy Stripes ~ $88

OC Amour Vert Christina High / Low Dress in White / Navy Stripes ~ $88

Once again I've remade a maxi dress into a maxi skirt so I can achieve the length needed to not look like I'm preparing for another Broad Ripple flood! :)  Instead of refashioning the bodice, I just covered it with a wrap belt.... 

Heading to the coast or sticking to the mid-west, the Nautical theme is back for summer and with brands like Amour Vert and Sanctuary you can rest assured they will be ready for their come back next year as well!
