What is key for you to stay positive with everything that is happening in the world? Not watching the news everyday, stay busy and practice gratitude.
Where do find your inspiration?
My daily routine consists of waking up quite early ‘so around 6AM), having big breakfast and morning coffee with a favorite show (such as Friends) playing in the background. After that I do my daily workout, which is followed by work with multiple (to many to be honest) food and coffee breaks. I always finish the day with an evening walk and/or a quick yoga session. As far as inspiration goes, I must say I’ve been struggling a little bit during these difficult times, but I’d say the most of it comes from Instagram, not so much from Content Creators actually, but from brands directly!
What key items do you have in your all year round wardrobe? Style for me is a representation of who you are, a crucial part of your identity and it’s so much more than just putting together an outfit. It’s about your attitude, your personality, your mood and how you want to position yourself in the world! Key items for me are an oversized black blazer, a pair of straight jeans, a good white T-shirt, a neutral cashmere sweater and a black designer bag that spices up even the most simple look!

Envelope1976 believes in sustainability and classic pieces. Is there an item that you think never will go out of fashion?
Of course! I think there are many, but I’d say you can’t go wrong with a classic black blazer!
Reuse of clothes is important to us, do you have any good advice for how to reuse clothes? You can definitely reuse certain pieces and even adapt them to new trends. A good example I’d say is a pair of jeans that you can customize and spice up, by either cutting them, bleaching them, etc.
What do you do to have a greener lifestyle? I’d say it’s all about the little things that you can do in everyday life, such as recycling the trash, not using plastic bottles and straws, trying to save water and energy and I really limited shopping for clothes- I no longer shop at fast fashion retailers and I try to buy things I know are sustainable and a good investment.
Stronger together- what can we all do now? We need to stay positive and optimistic, as everything passes in life, and so will this horrible situation. So in these difficult times, I think it’s important to support each other, support small, local business and also to step together as a community, a nation and the whole world that fights the same battle!
