If you have a dog, you know they very completely become your whole world. When I got my little dachshund, Piper, a little over a year ago, I started accumulating just about anything you can think of with a wiener dog on it. Hand towels, socks, t-shirts, pajamas, slippers, wrapping paper, house decor... You name it, I probably have it. However there is some disparity between the volume of dachshund items on the market, and ones that are actually stylish. As much as I love long day jokes, I still want to look chic while proudly repping my precious pup. Enter, Wooden Ships.
Wooden Ships is a family owned and run business of 25 years with a passion for quality, giving back, and ethical production. In a world of fast fashion, it feels good to support a brand that is doing so much good. From crating their own factory in Bali and ensuring generous benefits and working conditions for workers, to being 85% solar powered to reduce their carbon footprint, to using eco-friendly and oxo-degradable packaging. They even make all pieces to order, eliminating waste. And they give to charities including EarthJustice, Organic Consumers Organization, the International Anti-Poaching Foundation, the Environmental Defense Fund, and WildAid to name a few (yes, there are more). So not only are you getting a super cute, high quality sweater- but you are supporting a company that supports so many people and the planet.
When they reached out and asked if I'd like to style one of their sweaters, I was incredibly flattered! And, it even has some little dachshunds on it. And, just about every other dog. The grey is the perfect neutral for into fall and winter, and I layered it with my cutest bralette. I paired it with jeans and some open-toe booties, but it will be equally adorable with some leggings and converse taking Piper for a walk! This thing is so soft, and it's light-knit makes it the perfect sweater for autumn in the south. You can use the code 'EmilyBlueB15' for 15% off your purchase of one of Wooden Ship's lovely pieces, and they are worth every penny.
