It's day 3 in Barcelona, Spain and this look is perfect for being comfortable while still being chic. I love the simplicity of black sweater and the pom pom's give it just the right amount of chic sass. I love that Trove (the brand of the sweater) celebrates artisan craft and culture through ethical production. I'm all for it! This particular sweater is made in India.

I love putting together looks that are either inspired by a decade or iconic figures in my life. The wide leg pants with the kangol gave me all of the 70's vibes! Kowtow is an amazing New Zealand brand. The label is committed to using fair trade certified organic cotton, Global Organic Textile Standard approved dyes, mindful manufacturing with fair working conditions, ethically sourced trims and sustainable packaging. Trove is a brand that I'm fairly new to - they partner directly with global artisans - creating jobs and celebrating culture. And in all transparency - I love that the owner doesn't just work with melanin communities but also uses WOC in their branding and marketing. It's such an important part of representation - making sure that WOC aren't just seen as laborers!
