How to Shop Ethically on a Budget

how to shop ethically on a budgetToday marks the start of Fashion Revolution Week, and in the spirit of this week, I wanted to share some tips on one of my favorite things: ethical shopping, and in particular budget ethical shopping. When I first made the switch to ethical fashion, I was concerned about finding pieces I loved in my price point, and while there are a lot of good reasons to invest in more expensive pieces, sometimes you simply can’t make those expenditures. I’m young, and working on saving rather than spending a lot of money on costly clothing, and as much as I love style, I’ve found methods of expressing it and shopping ethically without breaking the bank.

Here are my top 5 tips for shopping ethically on a budget

Spring 10×10 Style Challenge: Look No. 10

how to wear a dress as a topFriends! It’s time for the very last look in my spring 10×10 style challenge! This has been such a fun creative exercise for me, but I’m so excited to have my full closet to pick from again tomorrow. I love how this challenge has pushed me to try new ways to wear the items in my closet, and today’s look is one of my favorite new combinations. It’s made of up of two pieces I would never have thought to put together outside of the 10×10 restrictions, and I love how it looks. The combination of a fitted top and full skirt is a nod to some of my favorite vintage looks,

And you just can’t beat a twirly skirt in the spring!

Spring 10×10 Style Challenge: Look No. 9

audrey hepburn inspired fashion blog It’s the second to last day of my spring 10×10 style challenge, and today I’m sharing another casual look. As I mentioned last week, Thursday’s are all about comfort and ease for me, and today was no exception. Even though this outfit is comprised of very basic pieces, I love the classic feel it has. It’s the kind of thing that is definitely laid back, but still has a touch of elegance. I have to admit I did find myself itching to wear a different top then those I chose for my challenge, but I stuck with it, and I’m happy with the result. Plus it’s just one more day until I get to play around with every piece in my closet!

If Audrey Hepburn wore jeans and a t-shirt, I think it would have looked something like this.

Spring 10×10 Style Challenge: Look No. 8

how to style high waisted white jeans

This 10×10 challenge is quickly coming to an end, and I’ve had so much fun mixing up my wardrobe over the past two weeks! I’m back today with look 8, and this look is one of my personal favorites so far. It’s the kind of thing I can totally see myself wearing while wondering around a European city (I’ve got a mild case of wanderlust,) but it lends a touch of European elegance to my everyday life. At its root, this outfit is basically just a good old-fashioned jeans and tee combo, but the design and cut of each piece make it more interesting, and it looks like it took much more effort than it did.

It’s fresh, classic, and perfect for spring.

casual romantic outfits

Hi friends! I’m feeling pretty darn tired for it to be so early in the week, but I’m back with another installment in my 10×10 challenge! Today’s look is casually romantic, and a lot of fun. I can never wear this top without thinking about the puffy shirt Seinfeld episode, but that just makes me love it more. I’ve learned another lesson while working on this challenge: keep up with laundry! Today I swapped my jeans for a different pair because I just haven’t gotten them washed! It’s my first cheat of the 10×10, but I’m okay with it. Enough with the intro;

  Let’s chat casual romantic style.
