Fashion Friday: Emerald Plaid

8:30 AM


Bag: 88 ℅     Oxford: J. Crew   Shoes: J. Crew Factory (similar)     Skirt: J. Crew     Belt: H&M     Bracelet: Kristine Lily     Sunglasses: Polette  (similar)   

This outfit is actually a bit of a throwback to this one from last winter.  I'm one of those people who wears plaid year round, even if it's typically relegated to winter wear, like tartan.  Green isn't a color that I have a lot of in my closet, but definitely one of my favorites.  It pairs very well with classic notes of cognac, and I added on these vegan patent black bow flats for some contrast.

I always love sharing my favorite vegan brands on LMHC, especially when they are compassionate towards animals, people, and the planet.  One of my new favorite lines is 88 Handbags, an amazing brand with gorgeous, inexpensive, and ethically produced pieces.  They're all about sustainability, using eco-friendly polyurethane and striving to use the most environmentally conscious materials rather than the cheapest ones.  They also work hard to ensure that their bags are ethically produced with animal and human rights in mind.  On top of all that, 88 donates a percentage of their sales to charities that work to educate women around the world. 

I'm wearing one of my favorites from the line, the Zoe Walnut Woven Crossbody.  It can be worn as a clutch too, and it also comes in a gorgeous grey shade.  When this bag first arrived, I'll admit that I was stunned with the amazing quality of the bag, especially since it's $35!  You can really see the effort they put into finding the quality materials reflected in the piece.  This bag also hold a lot more that it appears to- there's a full sized wallet, a phone, two lipsticks, and a mini water bottle in there!

With your purchase of $49+, you can use the coupon code LittleMiss to receive a free wallet with your bag, valid until May 4.  Additionally, if you sign up for their newsletter, you will be entered into a bag giveaway.  I think it's so important to feel good about what you're wearing, and 88 is really a company that I'm proud to be supporting and sharing on this blog.  A good brand starts with good practices and ends with giving back, and that's the most important thing of all- fashion with compassion.

  1. What a fabulous look! I'm a huge plaid-year-round fan as well, but I'm totally obsessing over the ruffle detail created by the elastic waist + the belt. The final result is killer - and you accessorized it to keep it that way! :)
