When I first started thinking about what to pack for my #PowerTrip to New York the key word was comfort. If I was going to be sprinting around the city from fashion shows to meetings and drinks with friends, I needed a pair of cute, cool and comfy kicks. Lucky for me, my Veja sneakers arrived right on time.
Paris based brand Veja has the sustainable sneaker game on lock. These gold Esplars are named after a Brazilian NGO which brings technical support to the organic cotton farming families the company has worked with in North Brazil since 2004.
I paired my comfy kicks with a comfy faux suede dress from Forever 21 (don’t judge me, I’m not perfect!) and a vintage clock printed button down top. I decided against the matching shorts.Hey, it was the 80s.
The finishing touch was this gold bib necklace which was ethically made in Nairobi by Sustainable brand Soko. I am a huge fan of their jewelry and sell it from time to time in the shop. This easy breezy outfit was perfect for hopping around the city checking out great ethical designers.
