Sometimes, super simple does the trick, right? Breton stripes, basic denim, and neutral boots provide a clean palette to be perfectly finished with a pop of interest from an accessory.
Meet my ethically made, fair trade scarf made by women in third-world countries in search of employment and empowerment and brought to me by Route. As a new brand to the blog, let me share a little more about the brand that might just be the perfect source for a lovely little gift this holiday season!
Story: Route connects me (and you) to women throughout the world struggling to climb out of poverty through employment and empowerment opportunities. This non-profit organization connects makers and consumers in a way that helps ensure everyone receives fair treatment from start to finish.
Work Wear Styles Available: Their collection includes primarily accessories. There are a few clothing items available, but they are a bit too casual for most working environments. I love the scarf collection, as evidenced by my outfit today. They also offer plenty of simple, elegant jewelry pieces that make great finishing touches for any office outfit.
My Experience: I loved working with their team and found them very easy to work with.
The scarf is a great addition to my closet. It’s lightweight and flowy, which I love. The colors are perfect and the quality is great, exactly as I expected.
You’ll see in the photos below, when the Chicago wind tried to steal my new scarf, it’s very thin so it offers plenty of movement to fall just right when you’re wearing it.
If you try something from Route, be sure to let me know what you think! And don’t forget to follow along with their Instagram feed! They have lots of pretty photos and great style ideas sure to inspire your morning ‘style session’.
