Happy Thursday after Valentine’s Day! How did you celebrate (if at all)? I had drinks with a good friend, which was fun.
I know I said I would have an outfit post today, but the weather did not cooperate this weekend (read torrential rain) so I have the next best thing, a new ethical style post.
The star of this outfit is definitely the red coat. I am always drawn to statement coats but I think I am scared of them as well. They seem to make such a loud, well, statement 🙂 I’m sure one day, I will just go for it. I think that’s the attitude you have to take when rocking a statement anything 🙂 I like the way the cobalt blue bag and the bone colored jeans and top keep this outfit graphic and clean, and you can almost never go wrong with gold hoops and kitten heels.

I recently read something about ethical fashion recently that got me thinking. It stated that it’s not enough to just switch to consuming ethically produced goods at the rate that we consume fast fashion. Instead we should also try to consume less in general and purchase second-hand whenever possible. I am in the process of thinking about a spring/summer capsule wardrobe and I have been inspired by this idea to try to source at least half (hopefully more) of my new items from thrift and consignment stores. It will definitely be an interesting challenge. This makes sense as well as I am in the process of losing weight and don’t want to make serious clothing investments right now or cycle through a lot of cheap items.
How about you? What is are your spring/summer fashion goals?
