The weather keeps bouncing around, so I never know what I’ll be wearing tomorrow. But this outfit is so deliciously fall, I had to share! Oh, and it’s fair fashion from head to toe.
The cape is by Krochet Kids intl., which earned its 501(c)3 nonprofit status in 2008. It works with over 150 highly vulnerable women who live in Uganda and Peru, who receive education and mentorship. According to Krochet Kids, these women’s income can rise up to ten times higher than before they joined the program, and their savings grow 25 times larger. Plus, they are more likely to have access to healthcare, are less likely to suffer abuse, and their children are more likely to attend school.
They’re known for their cute beanies, but Krochet Kids has far more than that, including apparel (tanks, tees, and sweatshirts), bags (clutches, weekenders, and backpacks), scarves and headbands. Their latest collection, Curated, features modern and contemporary silhouettes made from locally sourced materials in Peru. Every product we make is hand-signed by the woman who made it. You can look her up on the site and leave her a message!
The shoes are by Nisolo, who I visited when I was in Nashville. (Nashville guide coming soon!) Nisolo’s headquarters are in Nashville, but the shoes are made by fairly paid expert shoemakers in Peru. This is one of their supposedly summer colors, but the off white I think makes it great for fall, too, especially when paired with tights!
The pants are by Plyknits, which knits using regenerated, deadstock, or upcycled fibers in their products. The shirt is by Tradlands, which makes all its menswear-inspired shirts in the U.S. The hat I bought at the Nashville Country Music Hall of Fame. (I wouldn’t recommend the brand, the braid fell off immediately!)
