Compassionate Fashion: 10 Eco-Friendly Summer Shoes From Timberland

I’ve found that it’s surprisingly easy to find clothing and accessories that are up to ethical and sustainable standards, but when it comes to shoes, the pickings are few and far between. There’s certainly stylish, handcrafted, responsibly sourced footwear out there — if you’re willing to spend a minimum of $300 on a pair of shoes — but if your budget is closer to $100 or less, your options dwindle to recycled yoga mat flip flops or … well, that’s pretty much it. Timberland is working to change that with their Earthkeepers line. Made using recycled materials and sourced from factories and tanneries that have shown a commitment to the environment, Earthkeepers are stylish, high quality shoes that you can feel good about buying and wear for years to come. I’m particularly enamored by their summer collection of sandals and espadrilles. Click through to check out 10 of my faves!

Must Haves: 7 Sassy One-Piece Swimsuits For Under $40

I do a lot of bathing suit browsing, but I have yet to replace my worn out swimsuits. Ever notice how some pool decks and bottoms have a grainy finish leaving your swimsuit bottom with a patch of snags? My favorite one piece is suffering from scuffled butt. If you too are in the market for a one-piece, try one of these suits for under $40!

Fashion Math: Pink + Orange

Pink alone is alright, but pink with orange? Now that makes me think of summer! I know what you’re thinking. Uh, don’t orange and pink clash? Yes! But in a good way! How else could a scoop of rainbow sherbet ice cream look so insanely delicious? (Especially right now — I’m going to Baskin-Robbins at lunch.) In this week’s fashion math, I’ll show you nine orange and pink outfits combos that are perfect for summer. Just keep your accessories basic and neutral — not counting the ice cream cone in your hand, of course.

Must Haves: 7 Paper Bag Shorts

Let’s be honest, a lot of short styles are not particularly comfortable. They dig in at the waist and crotch, or fit great at the waist but squeeze into your thighs. And once you eat lunch? Forget about it. Paper bag shorts, with their cinched waist and roomier fit, are a cute alternative to regular ol’ short-shorts. Here are seven pairs I’m jonesing for…

Must Haves: 8 Radical Rashguards

In the summer, I love to do everything outside. I would happily soak up the sun at the beach, pool or park all day long, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve become more aware of the sun’s negative effects. Even my olive skin tone can’t handle a full day under the cloudless sky and the most vulnerable areas on my shoulders and chest can’t get enough SPF. Last year, I discovered rashguards, so instead of running for cover at the first signs of a burn, I can now toss one on and sip iced tea as I lazily float around the pool.
