The season of wearing summer dresses is almost over. Before the autumn starts, I want to show you one of my favorite dresses from the sustainable brand ‘Jan ‘n June’. If you still don’t know this German label, read all about it here on an older blog post.

On this series of pictures, I am wearing the ‘Midi Slip Dress Capri Lemon’ on size S. The dress has a relaxed fit, midi length, and a low-cut back. The dress has a lining so it’s not see-through. The pictures were taken by the photographer Yenis Vega.

No More Lonely Socks With QNOOP

Have you ever found yourself missing a sock after putting a pair in the laundry? This is very common. Researchers determined that the average person loses 1.3 socks each month and more than 15 per year. And with the average person living to 81 years of age, that adds up to a whopping 1,264 socks lost during a lifetime. That is kind of a lot right?

Luckily there is a brand that has come to a solution to lonely socks. The Dutch brand QNOOP makes socks with a button on the one and a loop on the other. This way you can tie your socks together before washing them. Smart because you never lose one anymore doing your laundry. And it saves you tons of time matching your socks. On top of it its’ sustainable because people lose a lot of socks and then they throw away the lonely sock because there is no pair anymore.

The socks from QNOOP are ethically made in Portugal from organic cotton (GOTS certified). This uses 50% less water than when growing genetically modified cotton and there are no toxic chemicals used in the process.
The labels are made of recycled cardboard. And the button is bio-degradable. To make sure the socks are long-lasting, they are first steam and then press the socks in the factory in Portugal. This process prevents shrinkage and makes the socks ultra-soft.

From the collection of QNOOP I got the ‘Lurex Tube Navy‘ socks. Here are some pictures:

Chunky Shoes For The Summer

The 90s are making a comeback in the form of thick-soled shoes and it seems that everyone has embraced it. It all started back in 2015 when sleek sneakers dominated the market. The Adidas Stan Smith was seen during fashion weeks, in the red carpet and of course, everywhere on the streets. Consumers could not seem to get enough of the minimalist sneaker trend. Inspired by Scandinavian style, they were mass adopted as the new fashion shoe of choice.

The chunky shoe or more known in the fashion world as “dad shoe” was first debuted in the Balenciaga FW17 show during the Men’s Paris fashion week. Since then, it was the luxury range who have been wearing this trend. But since this year it has become the shoe of choice for high fashion, athletic brands, and fast-fashion lovers.

The dad sneaker proves to be another example of a trend that blurs traditional gender lines. While it may look like you have bricks strapped to your feet, these thick-soled sneakers are surprisingly lightweight and comfortable.

I have gathered my favorite styles for you to check. Let me know which one is your favorite.

This webshop sells only clothes from sustainable brands. Every brand chooses its own way of making sustainable fashion. Some brands pay particular attention to the garment workers.
