Wearing: Alexia Shorts in Pink Multiprint   I was watching Shark Tank the other day, and the sharks were laying into some young entrepreneur after he claimed that what made his business different was its commitment to social good. One of the sharks immediately shook his head, and pointed to the fact that, in this day and age, almost every business has a social enterprise because that’s what people are attracted to.   All I could think was a combinationRead More

5 easy ways to reduce your single-use plastics

If you’ve been reading this blog for a little while now, you probably will have noticed that, more and more lately, we’re venturing outside the confines of sustainable fashion to talk about sustainability overall. It’s a pretty natural progression. The more you dig into the fashion industry, and its impact on our planet, the more you veer off into researching other areas of negative (& positive) planetary impact.    It’s my hope that in the coming years Recess City willRead More

our daily routine 

Posted on February 2, 2018

Port and I were having a conversation yesterday about how, if you could stretch any one hour time slot in your day to two hours, which one it would be and why. I knew my answer pretty much immediately: 7 to 8 am. I’ve been a morning person my entire life, but 7 o’clock and some minutes after it has always been my “sweet spot.” For whatever reason, I think I consider any work or running I do in thatRead More

our wedding day & all the sustainable details

Porter and I have been married for four months as of yesterday, and even though newlyweds always seem to be saying “it’s flown by,” because of all of the travel we’ve done, it’s kind of felt more like four years; four adventure-driven, motivating,  laugh-filled, unpredictable, reassuring, crash-course-on-marriage, kind of years. Looking through these photos in depth (& out the window at eight inches of mountain snow) it’s hard to believe we were in the centre of this scene only sixteenRead More

heading home & what’s next for us 

Posted on December 4, 2017

  Just five or six months ago, I remember sitting down to write out the big announcement that we were leaving Boston to travel the world indefinitely. As soon as I hit “post” I felt like we’d crossed an invisible demarcation line, as if our lives had just entered a new phase; a phase that came with the sometimes exciting, sometimes daunting certainty that everything was about to be different. But in truth, our lives didn’t change when we hitRead More

recess city x share hope

 Pretty much every girl I know between the ages of 13-30 wears leggings at every available opportunity. I remember when leggings first started being a “thing” and the girls & boys at my high school were constantly at war over the fact that somehow girls were getting to wear glorified running tights to class, and they still had to dress in a coat & tie every day. The boys lost that battle (and also, pretty much the war, girlsRead More
