I am so happy that denim skirts are trending again. I was the queen of the denim skirt circa 2005 and I’m kicking myself that I gave away my collection years ago. When I was in the city last week, I picked up an Everlane denim skirt to bring the trend back to my own closet.
The store was so beautifully minimal and I’ve re-fallen in love with the brand. I also ended up buying these shorts and a white tee. You can read about their factories here and how they have the “world’s cleanest denim factory” here. I read that 98% of the water they use is recycled, they air dry their jeans to save energy, they use solar panels throughout the facility, and the coolest fact is this one:
“All denim creates a toxic byproduct called sludge, but at Saitex [the denim factory], the sludge is extracted and shipped to a nearby brick factory. Mixed with concrete, the toxic material can no longer leech into the environment. The resulting bricks are used to build affordable homes. So far, the factory has built ten.”
When I wear their product I feel good because it looks good and is comfortable, but knowing how much transparency the brand is putting into their production makes it feel even better.
I decided to use this skirt for my first styled three ways post because it’s the perfect casual piece to add to your summer wardrobe. You can throw it on with a tank top and flip flops to a BBQ or wear it with sneakers and a white tee to your kid’s soccer game.
Speaking of white tees…
I also have to give a shout-out to another brand because I’ve been wearing their white tees for years and get asked about them all the time. The v-neck pictured below is one of Lilla P’s white tees. I first discovered the brand when an old coworker had on one of their shirts and it was exactly what I had been looking for. The perfect fit and super soft material are worth the $72 price tag. And I can personally attest that they last for years. I’ve had one of their tees for at least seven years now and it is still holding up well.
Last week I reached out to Lilla P to ask about where the product is made and they told me it’s made ethically from local Pima cotton in Peru. They also offered a discount code for you guys! Use LS20 for 20% off sitewide. (FYI not sponsored)
