This post was written in collaboration with Cotton. All opinions and views are my own.
Many of you may already know this about me, that I used to work at Alternative Apparel for several years. I was a sales rep and worked with brands to find the best tees and sweatshirts for their companies. I loved what I did. As in, I was this weirdo who skipped on my way into work, I loved it so much. Leaving was really hard and a decision I didn’t take lightly. But the thing I’m so proud of that came from my 4+ years at the company is my love for and knowledge of fabric. We were fabric obsessed at AA. It’s what we were known for. Throughout the years, I find myself checking labels all the time to see what I’m really buying. I’m basically a fabric snob. You’ve also heard me talk about the importance of checking your clothing label in my big denim guide I did here.
That being said, when Cotton reached out and asked me if I like cotton and would want to work together on sharing some of my favorite cotton looks I said HECK YES. Why? Because it’s my favorite fabric for so many reasons. I look for this fabric in all my labels (tops, sweatshirts, pajamas AND denim). For summer especially, this is a fabric I only want to put on my body. It’s natural, breathable and just feels good. I wanted to share this particular look since it’s 100% cotton and includes two of my favorite summer things, eyelet and chambray. I wore a similar variation of this here on Instagram (and coming to the blog soon). It’s a classic summer combination that feels lightweight, stylish and makes me feel good. Who wouldn’t want that, right?
Are you a fabric snob like me? I’m all about wearing great fabrics and you bet that cotton is at the top of that list for me. Can’t wait to share more head to toe cotton looks with you throughout the year.
