a neutral color for springLocal, Intentional Goods

I love supporting local designers and the Midwest has plenty of artisans creating locally crafted jewelry, apparel and accessories. A lot of them create sustainable, upcycled and intentional products that are more than just beautiful and well-crafted. Today I’m sharing an outfit that features three such brands from my home state of Minnesota that design with wellness and sustainability in mind.

Made in Minnesota Accessories

I put together a neutral color palette to show off these accessories. The bracelet was specially designed by Moxie Malas for writers, using gemstones for the throat chakra. How cool is that? While I usually prefer color, it was fun to experiment with a neutral outfit color scheme.

The top is a Hackwith Design House which is also a local, hand-sewn fashion company that makes high quality garments, often out of upcycled fabric. I also featured them in a post here. Neutral colors are great to mix and match. Ivory, brown and black all go together effortlessly. Then you can pick a singular color to add in for a bright pop, like I picked blue here.
