MAKELA My Fav throw-on-and-go Piece!

June 24, 2020


Have you ever had a day when you were not in a mood for dressing up and all you wanted was a piece of clothing that you could just put on and feel beautiful? I have these days on a regular basis and I want to share one style that has helped me with this, SITA's Makela cardigan (sustainable cardigan, also worn as a poncho)  If you are like me, a lover of simple functional style, a traveler, journeywoman and all about comfort - you’re gonna love this piece!

The moment I put it on I had this feeling that I was almost wearing nothing, but when I looked at myself in the mirror I was like “wow… I look stunning!” These styles actually help change my frumpy mood by allowing to “feel the. frump without looking like dump.” 

It amazes me how I feel so comfortable in this style but looks elegant at the same time. When I wear this piece it looks like I’m ready to go to a party, to work or any special occasion because that outfit just “looks right”. I feel like it was made for me.


A little secret I learned about Makela is that its worn numerous ways! At first try, you’re either putting it on as a cardigan or as a poncho. Unless you’re told or read this blog, you might now know that it’s worn in other ways. I’m here to let you know that if you’re wearing it as a cardigan then all you do is pull either one of the sleeves over your head (keep the other sleeve on your arm), and it turns into a poncho!  Yes, abracadabra! And the poncho look is completely different. You could literally wear it one day over a tankini or dress as a cardigan and the next day as a poncho and nobody would know it was the same piece. I love this! The fabrication of this style is 93% Beechwood Modal and 7% Spandex, which makes it even more comfortable, breathable and soft. I am pretty sure I found my day-to-day partner. The Makela poncho/cardigan is the perfect all-season layer and suits any occasion. This sustainable cardigan piece is most definitely my go-to piece and worth a try.

SITA Safe Masks are here!

June 26, 2020

As some of you may know, my mom suffers from an autoimmune disease and she has caregivers come to her home daily. Over the past few weeks, I have not been able to find a “protective mask” for her or her healthcare workers. It really scared me. On top of my concern for my mom, now in certain parts of the US, you will be fined if you are not wearing a mask.
