Transition #4: Lace Dress in Fall

Well, officially COLD in NY which makes this end to my mini-series on transition pieces very aptly timed! I love a little lace, since I dress on the urban side, a little lace adds femininity and sexiness and for Summer it’s a natural choice. But I have to say I LOVE lace during the colder months too–lace brings a dreamy unexpected texture to fall outfits that I really really dig. So here are some ways to rock a lace dress… View Post

Transition #3 Culottes in Fall

We’re well into the Fall weather in NY and nearly done with my mini little transition series. I know culottes are not for everyone but I happen to love a good culotte and think that worn right they’re a super versatile item. Culottes were a big trend for the Fall 2015 runway shows but I actually think they’re not really a trend item. Culottes can look super classic while being a little fashion forward and they can be breezy in the… View Post

Transition #2: Shirt Dress Outfits for Fall

The shirt dress is probably my most favorite item of clothing–bold statement, I know (!)– but I’ve been dying to share shirt dress outfits for Fall! A shirt dress is just such a great piece for all seasons! In Summer it’s breezy without being super casual or exposing and I think a great shirt dress can be dressed up or down and is modern, subtle kind of sexy and totally classic. Now(!) here’s how to layer a shirt dress to carry you into… View Post

Transition # 1: Socks and Sandals

Wah! I can feel the season changing! The evenings are getting dark and there’s definitely a chill right now in NY. To make the transition easier I’ve gathered 4 different items that you can take from summer into fall–Transition #1 Socks and Sandals. I know that this style is not everyone’s cup of tea. An easier transition is stockings and sandals, BUT I happen to LOVE a good socks and sandals situation and because I’m naturally adverse to pants I… View Post

Last Dips for Summer-Ethical Swimwear

Can you believe Labor Day weekend is already here?!? I am always so sad to see Labor Day, since it’s the sign that Summer is coming to a close. While it’s still the season to get your last dips on, I wanted to share my guest post on Blender Babes last week– Ethical Beachwear for Every Girl. I am constantly super excited by the great ethical swimwear that’s out there and this year is no exception! Blender Babes is no stranger to Made-to-Travel, I… View Post

Ethical Spotlight on Victoria Road

I have a really exciting introduction for you, friends (plus a discount-code below!). Victoria Road is a gorgeous ethical boutique born from a philanthropic venture in Pakistan by co-founder Shannon Grewer and grew to become a beautiful means for artists in emerging markets, like Pakistan and India, to uplift each other. By connecting established local designers and emerging artisans with local ethical manufacturers, Victoria Road helps these artists get over the hurdle of manufacturing, giving them an opportunity for their designs to be shared and ultimately… View Post

Ethical Spotting-Celebrity Fave Reformation

(clinton two-piece-out of stock-but petite in gingham available – $198 // Taylor Swift via WhoWhatWear) I love seeing ethical brands in the mainstream media and Reformation has been appearing everywhere–a celeb summer favorite since last year! While a lot of Reformation is totally in the “treat yo’self” category for me, I really do love the vibe of the super sexy, super modern clothing line and looking to treat myself not too far in the future :). What Makes Reformation Ethical:  Dedicated to… View Post

Ethical Spotting-Campana by Melissa Shoes

(photos: 1, 2, 3, 4) So what do Anne Hathaway, Blake Lively, Jessica Biel and Carrie Underwood have in common? Obviously the Campana collection by Melissa Shoes! I’m a big a fan of Melissa Shoes because not only are they cruelty free and made in Brazil, but I also find them super super comfortable, I totally dig so many of their styles and they are great rain or shine. Rarely a week goes by that I don’t wear a pair of… View Post

Happy Earth Day…Spring Blooms

Hi friends, I know it’s been a little bit since I’ve posted. Truthfully, I felt a little uninspired and in need a bit of a break. Hope you all don’t hold it against me! But I am now truly inspired by SPRING! Yay! Although the April showers are definitely in NY, Spring is blooming  and on this Earth Day I thought an ethical round up of some sweet blooming ethical fashion is appropriate :). floral backpack- $52.50 // silver leaf… View Post

Ethical Boots

One of the few reasons I enjoy when the weather gets chillier is the opportunity to wear boots!
