We have admired Nikki for a while, and we're thrilled when she agreed to be a participant in our journal. Nikki has a wonderful muted style that specialising in natural fibres and colours, and we were thrilled to send her the Jacqui Crop and Kylie Skirt in Neutral Linen. We wanted to know more about Nikki! So we asked her some questions.

Can you share a story about how you’ve incorporated sustainability into your daily life? I.e. Recycling, composting, re-wearing your wardrobe, vegetarian etc

I choose energy-efficient appliances and light bulbs in everyday use in my house and select locally made products/brands where possible to support sustainable targets in Australia. Further I support local farmers by buying organic produce in local markets and small shops. I reeducate waste by recycling, composting all food waste and use in the garden , and avoiding single-use items like plastic bags, disposable cups etc.I make my own dishwashing tables and hand wash liquids with very environmentally friendly ingredients. 

Can you share your favourite tip for how your followers can live a more sustainable lifestyle?

Get closer to nature by loving and appreciating it every day, that will lead to you to a path where you start thinking how can I live a life what I can help nature sustain longer. Simply start reusing everything possible.

Who is your style icon and why?

I love Rouri’s sustainable fashion label. Her styles are simply beautiful and looks so comfortable for any occasion. She always chooses beautiful neutrals on her collection.

What is one item in your wardrobe that you can’t live without?

I have a French flax linen wrap dress which I love most.

What are your thoughts on the body positivity movement? I.e. diversity and inclusion.

I strongly believe, real change begins with self-love and self-care, where I highly admire my colour, shape and size. Positive thoughts and words towards myself have literally changed my life, and help me appreciate everyone else’s shape, colour and qualities around my life.
