As expected, I woke up very, very early in Portland this morning in full jet-lag mode. This means, an early blog post, so I suppose it's a good thing.
My Day 8 Outfit
When I was living in Southern California, I attended the very first events of Connecting Things, an event series for creatives and doers. There, I got to meet Kohl Crecelius, the founder of Krochet Kids. I have a keen interest for businesses that give back and decided this year to sign up for a Causebox membership to discover more socially conscious companies. In the last box, I got this cute pompom beanie, which has been my favorite one ever since.
Amy & Jen, the co-founders of Odds and Sods were also members of Connecting Things and would sometimes come and work with us in our coworking studio. I'm wearing 2 of their pins on my jacket as a reminder of the power of sisterhood, wanderlust and magic!

- Jacket (sample) - Similar
- Clogs - Sandgrens - Made in Sweden
I am not 100% sure about this outfit. While I like the playfulness of the pompom hat, I can't ignore the fact that the jacket is totally hiding my waist and ends up drawing a very rectangular figure.
What's our favorite socially conscious brand and why?
