Tigerlilly Quinn: what we wore

what we wore


A little sunday morning breakfast at a local cafe. We arrived a little early so whats one to do in those situations other than take a few outfit photos right? I'm sure everyone in our neighbour hood thinks we're nuts!

I'm not usually a trainer girl but I was recently contacted by Sky Rainforest Rescue about their work in the Amazon with WWF and sent these trainers as part of their 'Tap for Trainers' campaign.

When I first heard about Tap for Trainers and the work Sky Rainforest Rescue were doing I was thrilled to be part of it. I had never heard about rubber tapping before and was interested to hear about the partnership between Sky and WWF to tackle deforestation by enabling local people to make a living from sustainable rainforest products such as wild rubber. 

What’s more through working with Lily Cole and Veja to produce environmentally friendly fashion this is something that can become accessible to everyone though the Tap for Trainers project. I love the range Lily has come up, incorporating the amazonian theme and proving that sustainable fashion can be beautiful and stylish as well as fun!

Sky Rainforest rescue have also teamed with one of my all time favourite illustrators Sandra Diekmann to create this amazing IG tree. I'm a bit honoured to be part of one of their squares, you can see mine here

My dress is from a vintage shop we stopped at in Paris, it's about three sizes too big for me but I think it works with a belt..at least I hope it kind of does. 
Wilf is wearing dungarees from Baby Gap and trainers from Clarks* :)

Dress is awesome and what a cool initiative! I'm not a sneakers girl either, but I was just eyeing up a pair in the Sundance catalog. A bit out of my price range at the moment though and they don't have the sustainable minded edge that these have.
