Fighting the big business, fast fashion monster it's complicated. I listened to an awesome insta story from the owner of @encircled_ that spoke to the idea that boycotting shopping entirely this weekend is not exactly productive when trying to support conscious brands. During this time of year those businesses are trying to survive too. 💚 Instead, when possible, utilize this time, and the sales that are available, to support conscious brands instead of big box stores. Often times purchasing quality, responsible, organic, sustainable, handmade, small/microbusiness, etc. products feels out of budget. By taking the opportunity to support these businesses when it may be a little easier on your wallet, or when you're already in the market to spend money on gifts, is a great way to vote with your dollars and live your values. 💚✨I treated myself to this top, that will last me for ages and is super versatile. I love the company and I am excited to have been able to vote with my dollars and support them. #consciousclothing   #consciouslyproduced   #consciousliving   #encircled   #blackfriday   #smallbusinesssaturday   #cybermonday   #holidayshopping   #supportsmallbusiness   #gogreen   #liveyourvalues  

Ethical Canadian clothing brand @encircled_ is having a super rare sale on some of their best pieces -- 20% off selected items with code FRIDAY20 via the LINK IN MY BIO through Monday, including the convertible Chrysalis Cardi that I'm wearing here. This must-have travel garment can be styled in 8 different ways and comes in a bunch of colors. I finally bought it this summer after having my eye on it for 4 years and became an affiliate for the brand. No, it isn't cheap but it's important to me to support brands that care about things like human rights and the environment. I promise you'll love them too if well-made, functional clothing is up your alley. . #encircled   #chrysaliscardi   #ethicalclothing   #sustainableclothing   #ethicalfashion   #sustainablefashion   #ecofriendly   #ecofriendlyfashion   #blackfridaysales   #blackfriday   #expat   #expatblogger   #americaninfrance   #ouiinfrance   #lightandairypresets

Anyone else loving how you can totally rock joggers outside of the couch and the gym now? 🏃🏼‍♀️So many of my wardrobe pieces these days have the ability to be dressed up or down as I’m working towards the ultimate capsule wardrobe. This slouchy blue, light knit, sweater is from the @encircled_ “dressy” collection. Their clothes are designed to be super versatile, sustainable and functional.

Sea day for letsgetearthychallenge - this twisty wrap cardigan from @encircled_ was my very first ethical fashion purchase. It was the start of a whole thing. There were a lot of impulses leading me towards the slower fashion path, but this was the first thing I actually went for, after eyeing it from Facebook ads for a while. . Ironically... this one hasn’t quite hit home for me, and I’m not sure why. I think the color Amy be a bit more blue than my usual preferred dark teal, and starts to get a little close to denim blue for my comfort. I like the flexibility here but I’m not sure I love it either crossed over or draped. I love the fabric and I love where it led me. And I really love my other pieces from encircled like the chrysalis cardi and dressy sweatpants. .

Pull out your chacos! This was an adventure. I don’t know that I was most impressed by, the fantastic architecture and carvings, all the work being done to restore them, the humid heat, or the magnificent trees taking over the temples. This was truly a fantastic experience! Also, it was a vegan’s paradise! We ate at some of the best vegan restaurants I’ve ever been to! Truly the best vegan Italian places, probably in the world! And got my steps in for the day by like 7:30am. To say it was incredible would be an understatement.

How did you spend your weekend? 🇺🇸 Happy Veteran's Day to all my USA friends! My prompt is totally a day late but I hope you'll forgive --my weekend was full with my belated birthday party (I'm an October baby), family time, and even a little writing time, which allowed me to fix a troubling plot issue.

Who has your back? 🤔Today over tea with a friend, she shared with me how her 7-year old described the feeling of visiting their home village in Europe. "It felt like they had my back." 🙃WOW! Not only was this just a phenomenal and precious reflection from someone so young, it really reinforced this feeling that's been on my heart and mind lately, about how critically important it is for us, as humans, women, leaders, entrepreneurs, go-getters, creators, living our lives in everyday ways and in extraordinary moments...to feel CONNECTED. To feel SEEN. To feel ENCIRCLED. To feel VALUED. To feel SAFE.⠀ There's a reason why this is so needed among femaleleaders. Womxn heal, learn and grow in community with others. As my friend @drmichelleperis has been heralding: Community is a medicine with the power to transform our hearts, minds and lives. The simple act of choosing to connect with one another has the power to reduce anxiety and depression while boosting confidence. Feeling lonely or isolated is in fact so detrimental to our health that research over the past 30 years showed social isolation and loneliness can increase the risk of death by up to 29%. Yikes. No wonder loneliness feels painful. That's the nervous system's way of expressing there's danger in "going it alone".⠀ YOUR work is important and your dreams are precious. I don't want anyone who's feeling lonely, isolated or stuck in their journey of bringing their dreams to life to have those feelings be the end of the story. ⠀ We've 3 places left in our new fempowered mastermind where a small group of women will have the opportunity to gather in circle once per month for the next 6 months. We're going to break through the wall of loneliness in leadership, build up our confidence as we embrace next steps feeling supported, and bring our most empowered selves through our cycles of hormones and of business. We're going to write our story and see it through to the end we're really looking for. ⠀ Interviews close Friday. DM me for a chat to see if it's a fit!⠀ Now..Who are your bizsisters who have your back? Give them a shoutout by tagging them in the comments. ⠀ ⠀ PMID: 29172607⠀ PMID: 25910392

😍The day that I arrived in Chicago I had a package waiting for me from @encircled_ . It was a small package with a pretty marvelous gem inside: their dressy leggings. . I have been an avid follower of Encircled for quite some time and was thrilled to give these a try. Encircled is a so well known in the sustainable community because you can wear their peices every single day of the week: their items are amazing for any capsule wardrobe. . One tag line that I kept hearing was that you can wear them for 7 days straight. I was intrigued and so I gave it a go and I am beyond impressed!! These leggings pulled every single outfit together and I always felt extremely put together. These are a must try for anyone looking for the perfect legging with the perfect fit, extremely comfortable wear and side pockets to boot. 🎉 . They are currently on pre-order but will be able to ship November 22nd! I'll add that link to our stories ♥️ . . . . #capsulewardrobe   #ootd   #sustainablefashion   #ethicalinfluencer   #ethicallymade   #handcrafted   #madeincanada   #encircled   #whomademyclothes   #fairfashion   #fairtradefashion   #minimalist   #minimalistootd   #minimalistwardrobe   #neutraltones   #mysustainablecloset   #supportlocal

“We are a people encircled by God himself. The compound Greek word periousios is translated from “around,” as a circle, and the verb “to be.” It can mean something surrounded by something. It can be charted by a dot within a circle. As the circle surrounds the dot, so God is around each one of his saints. The circle has the dot all to itself. So God has His very own all to Himself. We are unique in that we belong only to Him. Uniquely His, we are monopolized by God, taken into Himself by grace through faith and surrounded by His love.” PTL Commentary Titus 2:14⠀ #tuesdaytruth   #hearttoheart   #together   #encircled   #jesus   #unique   #loved   #belongtogod   #identityinchrist  

A preternatural fear of heights makes me about as terrible a rooftopper as you can get.

fauxfall10x10 DAY 3 and me (and I guess Niko 😽) are sharing a sweet ethicalfashion brand with ya! @encircled_ is a Canadian brand that responsibly knits all of their garments in Toronto. Their pieces are SUPER versatile, as you’ll see in the remainder of this 10x10challenge; and EXTREMELY comfy. In today’s look, I’m wearing their: Wanderer Sleeveless Tee: white, size S. All Day Wide-Leg Pant: size S, altered to fit my petite frame 🙃 the inseam in these comes at 31”, so I had them hemmed a few inches to hit right at the ankle. These pieces are made from a blend of ecofriendly Modal fabric, which is a sustainably sourced from beech-tree pulp in a process where 95% of the water and materials used are recycled. (Clearly I did some digging on their website lol...this stuff is important!) Anywho, I’m happy to say that aside from being eco-friendly, this fabric is incredibly soft and PERFECT for all-day wear. It’s classy enough to dress up for work, and comfy enough to lounge around in at home. I’m excited to continue to style these pieces in different ways throughout the rest of the 10x10 challenge! #encircled   #encircledclothing   partner image description: 3 photos of an AAPI woman in her living room, wearing secondhand @swedishhasbeens clogs with black wide-legged pants, a sleeveless white tee, and a grey felt hat.

Line drying it the best way to dry our clothes. Dryer heat and friction break down fibers, causing holes and discoloration. As we edit our closets and invest in a few versatile items that last, we’ll have time to give proper care to our loved items.

Repost @encircled_ (@get_repost) ・・・ Did you know that 53 million tons of clothes are produced globally each year, of which 87% ends up in the landfill?⁠ ⁠ Making your clothes last longer can make a difference.⁠ ⁠ Here are a few ways we can all make our clothes last longer.⁠ ⁠ ➖Buy quality, to begin with: look for well-made pieces that have high-end finishes like french seams, covered neck seams, and durable stitching. Something well made won't fall apart after one wash.⁠ ➖Focus on timeless over trendy. Invest in designs that can be worn season over season and will always be in style like classic blazers, effortless t-shirts, and denim. Allocated a relatively small portion of your clothing budget to trends.⁠ ➖Use gentle detergents and follow washing instructions. Opt for an organic, low impact detergent. Hang to dry, versus using the dryer which can heat up and melt fibres.⁠ ➖ Learn to repair clothing. Often if something is ripped, or missing a button or pilling, we opt to donate. Why not repair? If you're not talented in this area, having a reputable tailor who can help is an asset!⁠ ➖ Store clothes properly. Fold heavier items. Get good hangers that help hold the shape of blazers.⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #sustainablefashion   #slowfashion   #faritrade   #fashion   #ecofashion   #ethicallymade   #sustainable   #style   #fashionrevolution   #fairfashion   #sustainablestyle   #fairtradefashion   #organic   #organiccotton   #instafashion   #ethicalstyle   #womenswear   #womensfashion   #eco   #instasyle   #ethicalfashionbrand   #ethicalootd   #bcorporation   #fastfashion   #encircled⁠  

Finding the right balance as a business owner is a constant struggle. It doesn’t matter if you’re a startup or in business for 20+ years. In this interview, we have the pleasure to learn from Kristi Soomer, founder and CEO of Canada’s own ethical clothing brand ENCIRCLED, a seven-figure B-Corp. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ I was hugely inspired by Kristi’s freedom seeker story, passion, perseverance and courage to leap into something altogether different, at a time when the corporate world was hers for the taking.

Decluttering and organizing your living space can be a daunting task at times. Doing it bit by bit can be a great way to get the job done without feeling overwhelmed.⁠ ⁠ @apartmenttherapy is kicking off their 15-day decluttering challenge with this great tip:⁠ ⁠ Day 1: Set up your three-box drop zone (sell, donate, maybes).⁠ ⁠ Sell: “This box will ultimately be for items you think have value, just not for you right now.”⁠ ⁠ Donate: “For things that are in good shape but not worth selling, or things you want to give away to friends or family, or that you can find a better home for.”⁠ ⁠ Maybes: “Use this box along the way to collect objects you’re not sure about. Maybe it’s something you’re on the fence about tossing, or that doesn’t really have a home in your home just yet."⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #sustainablefashion   #ethicalfashion   #sustainability   #ecofashion   #slowfashion   #theartofslowliving   #seekthesimplicity   #liveauthentic   #simpleliving   #minimalism   #simplicity   #ethicallymade   #minimalist   #livesimple   #slowlife   #ootd   #outfitoftheday   #slowliving   #sustainablestyle   #mindfulliving   #lessismore   #fashioninspiration   #capsule   #capsulewardrobe   #mariekondo   #encircled⁠

FlashbackFriday to last year when we first started working on the t-shirt dress and yes, the first sample was THIS long. We wanted to create a long enough dress so we revised the design several times until we found the perfect length.⁠ ⁠ Find the Everyday T-shirt Dress in our Sale on Sale. ⁠ Use code SAYONARA to save an extra 30% OFF.⁠ ⁠ 👆🏼Tap @encircled_ and the link in our profile to shop the sale.⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #sustainablefashion   #slowfashion   #buylesschoosewell   #madeincanada   #capsulewardrobe   #thehappynow   #qualityoverquantity   #flashesofdelight   #shopsmall   #thatsdarling   #ministyle   #lessismore   #sustainablestyle   #slowfashionblogger   #minimaliststyle   #consciousbrands   #ethicalcompany   #ethicallymade   #giveback   #fairtrade   #ethicalfashion   #shopsocial   #ethicalliving   #livemindfully   #socialgood   #sustainable   ecofriendly ⁠ #tshirtdress   #encircled⁠  

It is now humid in this transition from summer to fall, and I'm failing at dressing comfortably. 😑 I get hot really easily, but I also cool down really fast. I have to deal with body heat on my commute to work, but my office is always freezing cold. I'm worse at layering than I thought. 😂 I never got to wear this potential outfit to work during a warmer period. Both the camisole and blazer are thrifted, and work so well together in an ensemble. I've always struggled with finding a pair of longer shorts that look flattering. Bermuda style has never really worked and they'd either be way too loose in the waist, if they'd even make it over my thighs... So, bless Encircled, who created a beautiful pair of work-appropriate shorts from Tencel (a sustainable fabric), and made in Canada! While I'll have to put them away until next spring/summer, I'm glad to have gotten a few wears out of them this season. Do you have a pair of work-appropriate shorts? Or no shorts, ever?

Every time we make a purchase, remember to consider how it was made, what it's made of, and who made it. ⁠⁣ ⁠⁣ There is a power behind each of the purchases made by us.⁠ ⁣ ⁣ Countries like Canada celebrate "Labour day" as it was created to honour the achievement of workers in terms of labour rights. There was a time when an 8-hour work day in Canada or the US was NOT the norm. ⁠⁣ ⁠⁣ In many other countries, there are still no regulations around working hours. In some countries that rely heavily on the garment industry, like Bangladesh, working hour regulations are rarely enforced with over 62% of workers in the sewing industry working over 12 hours a day regularly. ⁠⁣ ⁠⁣ While purchasing items, keep in mind to only buy from brands that are just and respect rights of all their workers. ⁣ ⁠⁣ ⁠⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁠ Post via @encircled_⁣ #sustainablefashion   #slowfashion   #faritrade   #fashion   #ecofashion   #ethicallymade   #sustainable   #style   #fashionrevolution   #fairfashion   #sustainablestyle   #fairtradefashion   #organic   #organiccotton   #instafashion   #ethicalstyle   #womenswear   #womensfashion   #eco   #instasyle   #ethicalfashionbrand   #ethicalootd   #bcorporation   #fastfashion   #encircled⁠

Revisiting No. 6, “Encircled.” Four months ago, I wasn’t thinking beyond blacking out unwanted words; using images to hide text while illustrating poetry hadn’t occurred to me. Largely, I think, because I doubted my artistic and design abilities. This revision keeps all the same words (though I relocated an “and”), simplifies the color scheme, and uses encircled wedding rings and simple black lines to redact text. Swipe to see the original. No. 6, “Encircled” without hope and reflection and awe humans couldn’t tie the knot . . . #showyourwork   #redo   #encircled   #marriage   #blackoutpoem   #redactedpoetry   #foundpoetry   #alteredbooks   #illustration   #dailypoem   #graphicdesign   #writersofinstagram   #artwork   #creative   #creativeprocess   #visualpoetry   #redoblackouts  

Curating a sustainable wardrobe means investing more in your clothing. What’s often forgotten is that one of the easiest ways to create a more sustainable closet is to take care of the clothes you already have so that they last longer.
