Hi.

My name is Kaylie! I started blogging over four years ago with the intention to show women that style comes in all shapes and sizes! After taking a trip to India last year, I re-branded The Sweltering Sweater into an ethical fashion blog. I want my readers to feel good about the clothes they're wearing, as well as where they came from! 

LEST Bow-Tie Giveaway!

LEST Bow-Tie Giveaway!

If you have been following me on Instagram (click here if you want to follow along), then you know I have been looking for ethically made hair accessories. Scrunchies, hair pins and scarfs are popping up everywhere and are going to be seen everywhere this summer. If I’m going to continue being the trendy person I am, then I am going to go all out but do it ethically! After an extensive online search of any hair related keywords I could think of, I came up empty handed (mostly because I’m really picky).

I heard about LEST a few months ago right after their grand opening in January and I loved their business model. Based in Minnesota, LEST takes old unused couch and chair fabric and repurposes them into fashionable bow-ties!

Thinking ahead to all of the weddings we’ll be attending this summer, I thought one of their bow-ties would be perfect for Ben. He already knows how to tie a bow-tie, and he could switch up his look for something more fresh this spring.

Then I started to challenge myself, how could I style bow-ties in a way that girly-girls like me could wear it? Then it hit me: HAIR BOWS! They add a feminine touch and would fit right into the hair accessories trend I wanted to pull off. I reached out to LEST and the rest is history!

Now that Ben and I have tried LEST out for ourselves, we want you to experience their high quality (and eco-friendly/repurposed) bow-ties as well, that’s why we are partnering with them and giving away a LEST bow-tie to one of our incredible followers!
