A Seattle to Bainbridge Island Ferry Ride with Nau

Live #Nau

There is a lot to love in the Northwest. We have mountains, lakes, evergreen trees, and coffee. One of my favorite things that are unique to living in the Pacific Northwest are ferry rides. I love the experience of traveling to a new place. This past fall, I took two trips to the San Juan Islands. For this ferry ride photo shoot, we went to Bainbridge Island. 

There are an immense amount of Northwest adventures you can find in every season. Nau clothing is helping me dress for those adventures. Before I share a few favorites from Nau, have you heard of Nau before?

What is Nau?

With the tagline “Everywhere Better”, creates premium, modern designed apparel from sustainable, technical fabrics. Not only does Nau use organic cotton and recycled polyester, but they also give 2% of every sale to their Partners of Change. Nau is a sustainable, environmental focused company that considers every aspect of the life cycle of clothing.

 The Khaki Jacket
One of my favorite pieces from Nau is my Introvert Khaki Jacket. I’ve been looking for the right khaki jacket to add to my wardrobe. I absolutely love how lightweight this jacket is. I can wear layers underneath it or I can just wear this jacket as is. I know this sounds silly, but I absolutely love the size of the pockets of this jacket. Sometimes I don’t want to bring a purse when I’m running errands. So having pockets with plenty of room for my keys and wallet are a win for me.

The Introvert Khaki Jacket can be found here. Here are also a few of my favorite jackets from Nau: Quintessentshell Trench and Slight Anorak (I wish I had this in Poppy!).

The L/S Sublime Cardigan 
Another favorite of mine is the L/S Sublime Cardigan. This cardigan is comfortable and I can wear it on the weekends and also to work. This has become a staple piece in my wardrobe. And again, I love the pockets!

The Sleeveless Tunic 
The Sleeveless Tunic is another versatile, staple piece that I love from Nau’s Spring Collection. Its simple silhouette makes it easy to pair with so many different types of jeans. I could wear this top with destroyed denim, boyfriend jeans, skinny jeans, and jeans with a frayed hem.

 Aside from their incredible clothes, I love how Nau clothing is focused on what materials choose to make their products. The fashion industry is the second most polluting industry in the world. So choosing to shop at at eco friendly companies with sustainability in mind is always a great choice. Thank you Nau for being an ethical clothing company!
