Top 10 summer cruelty-free fashion finds

There is so much to love about summer. The smell of freshly cut grass, family barbecues, lazy days on the beach, camping with friends, and a great excuse to buy a whole new wardrobe for the warmer weather!

 Here are my top 10 summer fashion finds to take you to the beach and beyond:

1. Vaute Couture’s No Animals Harmed Organic Tote.  This 100% organic cotton canvas tote bag zips close and has an internal multi-compartment pocket that is great for stashing your sunscreen, sunglasses, and a good book.

2. Karmavore Vegan Shop’s My Voice for the Voiceless Tee. The 100% combed cotton top is lightweight, and sports a message that never goes out of style.

3. LivLunashop’s Skunkfunk Tank Top. The bright pink color is perfect for the season and the unique design featuring a cowl neck on both the front and back of the shirt ensures you’ll stand out from the crowd.

4. LivLunashop’s Threads 4 Thought Ibiza Snake Dress. This piece is incredibly versatile and can be worn as a tube top maxi-dress, as well as a skirt. The lilac and grey snake print dress is 100% organic cotton, is perfect for any warm weather occasion, and a steal priced at $29.00!

5. Victoria's Secret "Low Five Flap Skirt" This casual skirt can be dressed up or down, whether it be a day on the patio with friends or a hot date, a quick change in footwear and accessories is all you need.

6. Bourgeois Boheme’s “LAILA” Espadrille Sandals. The neutral color and maximum comfort guarantee these will be your new summer staple.

7. RACHEL Rachel Roy’s “Peppita” faux leather sandals. Designer flats at a fraction of the price that no animals had to suffer for? Count me in! The green shade is gorgeous and would pair perfectly with #2 & #5. 

8. Compassion Couture’s Hovey Lee-Chrys Silver Necklace. The chrysanthemum flower shape is a lovely feminine addition to any outfit. It’s set with tiny rhinestones to give a subtle sparkle effect that will catch everyone’s eye.

9. M.Fredric’s Art Box “Starfish Cuff." If you can’t make it to the beach this cuff will bring it to you! The gold color of the metal cuff will flood your thoughts with images of sunshine, sand, and surf with it’s under-the- sea beach vibe.

10. Alternative Outfitters “BB Dakota Lois” Dark brown faux leather jacket. A great jacket to warm you up on cool summer nights. This piece will add a nice edge to any outfit and will serve as a great contrast to a light summer wardrobe.
