Welcome to our new blog series at Encircled called #OOTW.
If you're not totally down with the Insty lingo, #OOTW = outfit of the week
(and apparently it also means 'out of this world')
Over the next while, we'll share our favourite ways to wear + style Encircled designs while on the road traveling or at home. This is travel street style.
This week's OOTW is me - Kristi, the Founder of Encircled 'dressing up' for a business meeting.
Yes, no suits allowed! Ever.
A rare appearance for me without black leggings.
This outfit would be perfect for a casual spring weekend or adventuring in a city abroad. It's casual but not sloppy. Hello brunch, city walks, and market shopping.
For more travel street style ideas + inspiration, follow our Pinterest board.
Nothing is better than you, our customers, showing off how you like to style your Encircled stuff.
If you'd like to be featured on our OOTW series wearing YOUR fav Encircled piece (or two, or three), let us know.
For local (Toronto area) customers, we'd be happy to host you at our studio for a photoshoot. Outside of Toronto customers, we'll take submissions of photos - preferably in bright, natural light.
If we choose your photos to be featured in our OOTW blog series, you'll receive a free headband in the colour of your choice, while quantities last.
I can't wait to share all of the fun ways you're wearing Encircled and maximizing your wardrobe.
Chief Fashionpreneur, encircled

Earth Day has taught us that we need to be kinder to the planet, not only on Earth Day but every day. This extends to everything we do, including the gifts we give each other to commemorate special occasions. So, when putting together our annual Mother's Day Gift Guide, we put sustainability at the heart of each gift idea.
