After two babies, I was ready to go through my wardrobe and rethink not only my style (and rid myself of those “one of these days” pants) but also how I can become a more conscious consumer.

Anyone who has participated in a closet purge (or the recent Marie Kondo fad) knows that oftentimes, the whole process changes your outlook on style or substance. For me? It was both. I was an ENORMOUS fan of fast fashion back in the day, and knowing what I know now about the fashion industry, I’ve had to retrain my mindset and purchasing habits to remember QUALITY, not QUANTITY. While I’m in no way perfect, I know that if I’m committed to change, it will happen. 

After donating several bags of clothing and accessories, I was excited to shop my closet and create a brand new wardrobe using pieces that I already had. 

Determined to build a style and closet that would last longer than a season, I required a few everyday essentials. With my list in hand and values in check, I wanted to find a brand of classic, essential wardrobe pieces that would be durable and not break the bank. 

Have you heard of Nisolo? I was already a fan of their silhouettes and their spin on classic designs. Still, after reading about their current commitment to wage transparency (along with another Nashville brand, ABLE), I had to learn more.

(Nisolo is offering a discount to Wit & Delight readers! Keep reading for all the details.)

The Amalia Boot in dark olive

Nisolo recently published its commitment to ethical supply chains and wage transparency. What does that mean? By sharing this information, Nisolo, and other brands, are taking both accountability and responsibility to change unfair labor practices in the world of fashion. 

From their website:

All Nisolo producers receive, at a minimum, beyond fair trade wages, healthcare, and a healthy working environment. Your purchase enables us to create opportunity for over 500 people across our supply chain.

By having a better understanding of where my clothing comes from and what the supply chain looks like, I *am* a conscious consumer. I can see how the product is made from beginning to end and have a better understanding of just how far my money goes. 

Part of being a conscious consumer is using your purchasing power to make decisions. If you purchase from brands like Nisolo (or a list of even more that give back here!), you are supporting their mission and affecting change. 

With my values satisfied, I was ready to dive into Nisolo and find a few exceptionally designed and sustainable pieces that would help me shop my closet season after season. (Nisolo is offering 20% off Nisolo products to Wit & Delight readers. Use code WITDELIGHT20 now until 1/4/2020.)

Simone Crossbody in rosewood – Or as I like to call it, my Goldilocks bag. It’s not too big and not too small. Sometimes, I just want to carry a purse that holds more than my phone and wallet, but don’t want it to be so big that I’m searching for hours to find my phone. There is so much freedom in a crossbody bag, and as a parent, not having to carry everything for everybody is a gift in and of itself.

Ama Mula – Yes, yes, yes, it’s wintertime, and yes, maybe these Ama Mulas aren’t practical for walking outside (unless you’ve got a getaway planned to warmer weather!). But hear me out: I go inside places all the time. These are sitting right inside the studio so I can change out of my large, clunky snow boots and put these little beauties on. And just like that, I remember that spring will come again (and I can wear these all the time!).

Heeled Chelsea Boot in black – Fun fact about having two kids: Your feet aren’t the same size they were before, so I had to part with a few of my previous favorites (wish I knew about this before!). I’ve got a fantastic pair of winter boots for when winter gets real, but I needed a pair for winter “lite.” Enter Nisolo’s Heeled Chelsea boot. It’s not only stylish and light, but it’s rainproof people! This is a hardworking, water-resistant boot with rubber soles that won’t wilt or get destroyed in water. The best part? It still looks fantastic with everything. Do yourself a favor and get yourself a pair for the upcoming holiday season.

Noemi Belt in black – You would think that something so elemental to wardrobe building would be easy to find. For me, this is my white whale. I’m never taking off THIS BELT ever. I’ve had such problems with belts, and the only other one that seemed to work was in a vintage shop in Paris that I found earlier this year, but didn’t buy (spent the money on literally a suitcase full of beauty cream instead!).

While it has been a shift (and a challenge) to think deeper on my purchases, I know that in even in a small way, I’m affecting change. While change doesn’t happen overnight, I do know that even 1% counts. I feel good about using my purchasing power with Nisolo and other brands that are committing to giving back. It’s a win-win-win, knowing I’m getting an exceptionally designed product that is sustainable while also allowing me to uphold my values as a consumer. 

It’s heartening to see more and more companies share this type of information with the general public. I hope that with more companies like Nisolo being transparent with supply chain and wages, more and more brands will be inspired to follow suit.

  12. Rory Anderson says:

    I love the Heeled Chelsea Boot because I think it’s perfect for work and going out, and they’re a classic! I think the Amalia Boot would be perfect for my sister. They’d be a great practical winter boot for her that doesn’t sacrifice her personal style.

She just graduated from college and started her first “adult” job and is slowly trying to build out a more grown up wardrobe and the Simone would be such a beautiful addition. Thanks Kate+Nisolo!

  16. Mary Noel says:

  28. Tiffany says:

    I love the Chelsea boot and the Lana ankle boot!

  29. Kelsea Hickman says:

    I’ve been an avid Nisolo supporter since their beginning about 8 years ago, and have loved watching them grow into a simultaneous exemplar for ethical fashion and beautiful design and function. I have more of their shoes than I care to admit, but a favorite of mine is the Dari boot! I have the tan nubuck already, but recently made a move to Salt Lake City from Nashville where I’ve quickly learned weather-resistant shoes are a must! I would love the opportunity to show off the functionality and heart of Nisolo (and a little piece of Nashville!) in my new city with the black Dari boot from the commuter collection for myself and the Mateo boot in brown for my husband.

  30. Shannon says:

    This is not a brand I was familiar with but now I’m obsessed! Their products are beautiful and I love being more intentional about supporting businesses who are creating more sustainable and ethical merchandise!
    My two favorites:
    Amalia All Weather Boot in Olive
    AMA Mule (reminds me of warmer, sunnier days)!

  31. Hailey says:

    I love the All Weather boots and the Heeled Chelsea boots! But they’re all so good!!

  32. Mary says:

    Heeled Chelsea boot in every color, I’ve been eying them for MONTHS! The flat Chelsea boots too are so cute, and the belt! I might get in all colors . I LOVE Nisolo and everything they stand for!!! So glad to see the love here!

  36. Adlee Ray says:

    My favorite products would definitely have to be the heeled Chelsea boot in black and the Noemi belt in black! These are so cute and so versatile! Would love to rock these with a number of outfits! Would be so blessed to win this. As a mom of one I need more nice stuff like this!

  37. Caitlin H. says:

    I would choose the Mateo All Weather Boot for my boyfriend in Brandy and the Heeled Chelsea Boot in Black for myself. I love the simple, minimalist looks of the Nisolo line and subtle construction details.

  38. MO says:

    Love! The Heeled Chelsea Boot and Amalia Boot.

  39. Ericka says:

    The Nisolo Chelsea boot is the perfect Chelsea boot! I just ordered a pair and can’t wait to receive them. I would love to gift a pair to my mom and sister!

  40. Kamry says:

    Such a great post! Everything is beautiful, but the Heeled Chelsea Boot & Amalia All Weather Boot are calling my name.

  41. Tiffany Neman says:

    So difficult to choose. I love the black heeled Chelsea boot and the Lucia block heel sandals!

  42. I’ve always loved Nisolo’s Emma d’Orsay oxfords and any of my friends would love the classic heeled Chelsea boot!

  43. Annie Costa says:

    I love them all, but particularly lusting over the heeled chelsea boot and the smoking shoe.

  44. Natalie says:

    Amalia and Chelsea would go with so many work and play outfits!

  45. Rachel says:

    The heeled Chelsea boot looks perfect for all weather which would be perfect for me since I commute from SF to Chicago and the dark olive Amalia boots would be perfect for my girl Erin living in Barrington, IL. They are all so beautifully made.

  46. Alli says:

    I’ve been looking for a heeled boot that’ll work with my commute and the Dari Boot looks prefect! I also love the classic design of the Luisa Clutch.

  47. Mallory says:

    I LOVE the heeled Chelsea boot! I added them to my wish list the minute I saw them! As a social worker spending all day in the field, comfortable, versatile footwear is a must. Knowing they’re made by an ethical and sustainable company is super important to me. The Heeled Chelsea boots and Simone Crossbody Shopper would be key for 2020!

  48. Jane says:

    The Heeled Chelsea Boot and the Smoking Shoe would be beautiful additions to my vintage wardrobe.

  49. Emily says:

  52. Jess says:

    The Luisa Clutch and the Heeled Chelsea Boots forever and ever.

  53. Sarah Hansen says:

    How to choose! Everything is soo good. But, I’d love the Chelsea Boot and Paloma Mule. The friend I would give it away to is one whose currently in a rough time of life. Her husbands battling organ rejection, she has two boys, and gives everything she has to others. So I’d love to give something to her this Christmas.

  54. Tresa jones says:

    I would love the Amalia all weather boot and the Sedona travel derby. Now that I’m 30 and a mom I would love to upgrade my shoes for pieces that are comfortable, last longer than a season but that also make me feel put together and these beautiful shoes definitely fulfill all of those criteria.

  55. Estelle says:

    My sister would love the healed Chelsea boot and I’ve been eyeing the Huarache sandals!

  56. Estelle says:

  69. Lily says:

    the nisolo chelsea boots are the perfect classic boot! the ama mules are made for my sister, xx

  70. Katelyn Ewen says:

    I’d love the heeled chelsea boots for the cold winter months and I think the Cortez mid-top sneakers would be perfect for my partner who’s (similar but not as ethical) favorite sneakers have all but worn out. I’m keen to swap out some of our staples for products that are coming from a better company 😊

  71. Paige says:

    I LOVE Nisolo! I first heard of them through a photographer I follow and then seeing them on you, I fell in love all over again. I’m obsessed with a good quality Chelsea boot so I’d say the Chelsea boot and the heeled Chelsea boot are my favorite.

  72. Agnes says:

    I currently have a pair of black suede boots, but because I park on the top level of my office building and it is uncovered, I have to walk in the rain and my suede boots have gotten wet. I’ve resorted to wearing a pair of rubber rain boots from the children’s section of Target just for the walk from my car to my office, and then change into my suede boots at my desk. I would love a pair of Nisolo’s black Chelsea boot so that I can look stylish at work and not worry about my boots getting wet! I have read almost all of the reviews and am convinced this is the shoe for me. My very stylish friend/coworker LOVES shoes and often orders shoes that get delivered to work. It would be great to surprise her with a pair of Chelsea boots that would also be comfortable for all of the traveling she does!

  73. Agnes says:

    OH, the heeled Chelsea boot would be my second choice!

  74. Mimi says:

    I would choose the black commuter heeled Chelsea boots for myself for the wet winters we have in the Mid Atlantic. I’ve lived here for 7 years and still haven’t invested in a beautiful weatherproof set of boots. For the second pair, I’d choose the heeled Chelsea boots in brandy for my mom. She lives in the Bay Area where the weather is milder. We’re both 5’ and can use the lift! Thank you for hosting this giveaway from such a great ethical brand!

  75. Krystal says:

    For me it has to be the Amalia All Weather Boot in Brandy, and I would pick up the Travel Derby shoe for my boyfriend!

  76. Chelsea says:

    Since I’ve heard of Nisolo, I’ve been obsessed with nearly every product and their ethical mission. My favorites are definitely the Heeled Chelsea Boots and Mariella Mule. They absolutely look like classics that could be part of my everyday wardrobe!

  77. Patricia Bearden says:

    I’d love the Chelsea boot and the Clara crossbody

  78. Minh says:

    My two favorite items heeled chelsea boots and mariella mules because they are simple and clean!

  79. Natalie Ruth says:

    I’ve been eyeing the black/black Chelsea boots ever since I saw them on the witanddelight Instagram page. I LOVE the style and the sustainability. After having my daughter clothes (and shoes) for me are way down on the priority list. A chance at winning a pair is amazing. And a Clara crossbody purse, too? My dream. Both are big splurges for me, going from SAHM with a partner to support us to a full time working single mom meant no more extras, no more non necessities, and even though I know realistically I need both of these things (my current black flat boots are showing their age) I can’t justify spending on myself.

  80. Jessica C says:

    Would love the Chelsea boot and the mule. Both are super cute and I live where I can wear the mule year round

  81. Lily says:

    I adore both the black Heeled Chelsea Boot and the regular Chelsea Boot, too! 🙂

  82. Ann says:

    Idk if this is where we enter the giveaway? 🤔 If it is I’d LOVE to receive The crossbody shopper and the Ama miles! Wow what amazing products!

  83. Katie Mittelstadt says:

    I’m all about practicality, so I LOVE The Commuter Collection, particularly the Heeled Chelsea Boot and the regular Chelsea boot. I’d love to gift a pair of one of these to another one of my lovely friends braving the Midwestern winter. Love Nisolo.

  84. Davina says:

    Me and my friend would enjoy the Dari boot in black because it is stylish enough to be used for day and night outfits and the Lucia block heel sandal in brown; this shoe can be used for all seasons in LA.

  85. Sam Dore says:

    The Chelsea Boot and the Lara ankle boot are both lovely. It’s lovely to support companies that support sustainability and good labor practices.

  86. Jessica says:

    Heeled Chelsea boot in black!!

  87. Jessica says:

    As for the gift for my friend, I’d like to ask for the Simone crossbody in natural vachetta! Hanna’s been such a great encouragement to me this past semester. We’re both doing post-bacc studies to get into grad school. This would be such a sweet way to end the year and semester together!

  88. Kellie says:

    The Naomi belt and Chelsea boots

  89. Amber says:

    Love the Dari boot and Heeled Chelsea boot! Sleek and so cute!

  90. John says:

    I would love the Mateo all weather boot and Amalia all weather boot for my wife!

  91. Erin says:

    I’ve been eyeing the heeled Chelsea boot for ages, and the Amalia boot looks to be exactly what I’d want to put on every day. My budget is squeezed really tight, so this would be lovely to share with a friend. Thanks for the opportunity!

  92. Melanie says:

    The Chelsea boot in black and the Naomi belt black! Love all the products!

  93. Kat says:

    I’m in 😍😍😍 with the Ama mules. The chamberlain penny loafer in brandy would look great on my partner! He’s been looking for a work shoe upgrade and the penny loafer definitely looks like something he’d love.

  94. Eljana says:

    Regular or healed Chelsea boot!! I have been eyeing it ! Would also be thrilled to give a pair to my sister 🙂

  95. Annalisa says:

    With life as a freelancer, things can be tight sometimes. That’s why, when it comes to what I wear, I choose fewer things of better quality so that I can where them often and for years to come. I love Nisolo and what they stand for and have long had my eye on the Lana Boots in Brandy and the Emma d’Orsay Oxfords in Black. Between the two, they fit with all my outfits and meet almost every shoe need!

  96. Jamie says:

    I need that belt! Also the Chelsea boots would be AHHHmazing!

  97. Laura T says:

    The Simone bag and the Chelsea boot are my faves. Both long lasting staple pieces, you can’t go wrong

  98. Jordan Krause says:

    I’d definitely go for the Chelsea boot and the simone boot, because let’s be real: you can never have enough boots in Minnesota!

  99. Jess says:

    I’m loving the Elayna Sneakermoss & Dari Boot in Black. Both are beautiful and practical for cold midwestern winters!

  100. emily says:

    Nisolo is my favorite shoe company. I love the Amalia boots and the Lana ankle boot.

  101. Loving the Amalia boot and the Chelsea boot.

  102. Lauren B says:

    I love the Chelsea boot in black (perfect for work and fun, love the minimal heel). I also love the Simone crossbody – my mom needs a new work bag and I would gift this to her!

  103. Beth Supple says:

    I love the heeled Chelsea Boot and the All Weather Boot!

  104. Abby says:

    Favorites are the Women’s Lena Ankle Boot in Brandy Men’s Calano Oxford in Black…..My husband and I would love them for our date nights out! 🙂

  105. Kate says:

    Love, love the Ama Mules and the Canvas Weekender. So many good everyday, staple wardrobe pieces – hard to choose!

  106. Natasha Sequeira says:

    My favorites are the Chelsea boot and Lana ankle boot. Love love love!

  107. Kristine says:

    The brown Amalia is beautiful! A boot that is definitely suitable for the places I travel to and works for the snow as well which is a plus. My sister would love the heeled Chelsea boots in black. She uses a lot of snow boots most of the time so a dressier look would help her out for the those day to night looks.

  108. Katie says:

    Chelsea for me, Andres for him.

  109. Michaela says:

    Love this brand! I own the Ama mules and wear them all the time. Both the heeled Chelsea boot and the James oxfords are timeless and beautiful.

  110. I love the idea of an every day shoe like the Emma D’Orsay in the brown shade, I don’t have a simple elegant flat to run into for easy outfits. The mules also catch my eye.

    Andreas all weather boot is my other choice my other choice for my husband- his current pair is covered in holes… cringe- and our winters are prett-ee cold.

  111. Francie says:

    I’d love the chelsea boot in black/black, from the commuter collection. Since I live in the Bay area in California, we don’t experience much weather, but I’d love a boot that looks stylish but can withstand a little weather. I have a pair of Doc Martens that I love, but the style can be a bit aggressive for certain events a fashionable boot would serve better in . The Naomi belt in black would also serve as a staple fashion piece. As a young twenty something, I’ve also been trying to get away from fast fashion and build a classic wardrobe!

  112. Stephanie says:

    I have been eying the Ama Mula shoes for a few weeks now! Also love the Simone crossbody. So sleek.

  113. Julie Ruuska says:

    I have been looking for the perfect boot, and I think the heeled Chelsea boot in black is it!! The Ama Mule is the perfect slip on for the daily in and out with kids in toe!

  114. Natasha Gage says:

    Loving the heeled Chelsea boot & Noemi Belt- chic and timeless!

  115. Amy Kuntz says:

    The Amalia boots 9.5 in olive and the Lori tote in black are on my wishlist. Love this brand!

  116. Kellye says:

    I would wear the Chelsea boots everyday and I love the Mariella mules- they’d be perfect for work. Thank you!

  117. Paige says:

    Love that heeled Chelsea boot — major 70s vibes!

  118. Samantha Simmons says:

    As a Nashvillian, Nisolo is always at the top of my Pinterest boards, though I’ve only been able to purchase a handful of their items the past. I’m really digging their heeled Chelsea boots and the Clara bag!

  119. Ana says:

    I love Nisolo! I’ve always wanted a pair of their shoes. I love the James Oxford in Brandy and the Chelsea boot in black. Thanks for the chance to win !

  120. Claire Beaufort says:

    Heeled Chelsea boot for me, and the Lana ankle boot for my sis. Love!

  121. Valerie says:

    I love the Chelsea heeled boot in black and the Paloma open toed mule on black 💖

  122. Kayla says:

    Ahhhh! This is great! I’ve been really trying to live by “fewer but better” and I love this brand! I was LITERALLY just on their site an hour ago (no joke) have the Ama mules and the Elayna Sneaker (in bone) in👏🏻my 👏🏻cart! I have a trip to Spain booked for my birthday in April and either/both styles would be perfect to take with. Pick me! 🙏🏻🙏🏻

  123. Michelle says:

    I am in LOVE with the Chelsea boots and the mules!

  124. Grace says:

    For my sister, I’d get the classic Chelsea boot in brandy because we both have had a pair of Chelsea boots for years and she’s run hers right into the ground she’s gotten so much use out of them. It’s definitely time for a nice new pair, especially as she’s got her first baby on the way!
    For me, I’d go for the Mariela mules, also in brandy, because I’ve always loved the look of heeled mules but in reality never want too much of a heel – these are the perfect in between!

  125. Maggie says:

    Would definitely pic the Elayna Sneaker and the Heeled Chelsea boot… would cover most occasions I think! So beautiful 🙂

  126. Leslie says:

The two products I think would be great for me and a friend are the Heeled Chelsea Boot and Dari Boot. They are both classic boots that can go with any outfit, whether its dressy or casual. We also live in Michigan, so the weather proofing on the shoes will help them last a long time.

  184. Edelyn says:

    I’ve been looking for a pair of brown chelsea boots to replace the ones I wore to death and had to finally part with last year. After browsing around for the past year, I’ve concluded that Nisolo’s heeled chelsea boots in brandy are the ones most similar to them. They’ve been on my wishlist for a few months and I’d love to get them! My younger sister has been thinking about getting a pair of mules and I think she would love to get the Ama mules or the Mariella mules. They look beautiful and they also look comfy enough to walk around campus all day.

  185. Heidi says:

    I’d love the Amalia boots to add to my winter shoe options! I’m working to include more slow fashion items in my wardrobe, and these are so incredibly versatile. And I’d love to gift the crossbody shopper to my friend, K. It’s so perfect for her effortlessly stylish wardrobe

    Chelsea boots because my shoes are destroyed by Buffalo winters and I need some that make feel feel like a woman again! Like shania Twain. And I would love to get some for my sister too because we are both moms of two that look like a mess 100% of the time with our raggedy Ann type wardrobes right now. We spend all our money giving our kids new wardrobes every 6 months and never treat ourselves to anything more than a clearance pair of shoes once in a while.

  190. Kelly says:

    I love those fantastic heeled Chelsea boots! And the classic wallet

  191. Isse says:

    The heeled chelsea boots because they would be perfect for wearing throughout the day and into the night in norcal! And the ama mules for my sister because she can wear them throughout the year in socal!

  192. Sarah Catherine says:

    I’d love a pair of Chelsea boots for myself and a pair of huaraches for my husband!!
    We are receiving some gifts of miso Lo shoes for Christmas but like you, looking to change ourselves and closest from proponents of fast fashion to sustainable consumers, focused on the wellbeing of those we profit off of.

  193. June says:

    I love the beautiful weave of the ama mules! They’d be great for the spring and summer and probably even in the fall before it gets too cold! The chamberlain penny loafers would be great for my friend who just got a promotion and is looking for a shoe that’s a bit more dressed up, but still easy to wear and is comfy all day.

  194. Joanna says:

    The heeled Chelsea boot & Paloma heel are gorgeous!

  195. Caitlin Pearson says:

  198. Hanna Jeppsson says:

    Oh, the rubber boots for me and my sister, both recent mothers of two (combined four) kids, with complelety new shoe sizes, please! Help needed and very much wanted.

  199. Mel says:

  200. Nicole Solis says:

    The women’s Chelsea boot in black and Elayna Sneaker in natural vachetta would be the perfect combo for walking around town with my bestie Tay!

  201. Manolya says:

    I would like to have Emma d’Orsay Oxford in wheat because it is such an amazing color that you can wear with everything. My go to piece is ankle jeans so that would look great with them. I’ve been looking for a flat but stylish shoes for a long time. I think this one checks all the boxes 🙂

    When I showed Nisolo to my husband (this counts right? He is my best friend!) he didn’t think a minute and choose Andres All Weather Boot in brown. He was looking for a nice boot that he can wear in Midwest weather. That would be great Christmas gift for us 🙂

  202. Heidi windmiller says:

    I have been searching for a new black loafer and have recently set my sights on the Smoking Loafer in black. It looks so comfy and I LOVE the wood sole. For a friend, I’d like to gift the Chelsea boot to a friend. Looks like a pair of timeless boots you could have for a long, long time. I’ve been so curious to try Nisolo products.
