Today 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.
This week I’ve been pulling out my spring and summer clothes. It’s always so fun to see pieces from the past with the fresh eyes of a new year, and it definitely helps to inspire fun new outfit combinations. As I’ve been assessing what I have currently, I’ve also been taking note of what I would like to add to my closet for the spring season. These items range from updates of old favorites to more trend led items, and I have to confess; as much as I love a streamlined wardrobe, shopping for a new season is pretty darn fun.
Make some room in your closet; here are the pieces I have my eye on.
As spring approaches I often find myself drawn to more romantic and bohemian pieces, specifically when it comes to dresses. There’s just nothing like a flowy fun dress when the weather warms up. Finding more feminine pieces in the world of ethical and eco-friendly fashion can be challenging, but it’s definitely not impossible, so today I’ve rounded up six of my favorite romantic dresses for the new season.
From dramatic maxi lengths, to sweet daytime frocks, let’s talk dresses.
Happy Friday friends! Today I’m excited to have designer Emily DeLong of Margu Design here to chat about ethical fashion, the design process, trends, inspiration, her latest collection, and more.

When I first started making the switch to ethical and sustainable fashion, I knew in the back of my mind that I was wanting to add a classic watch to my wardrobe. I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to find what I was looking for in the world of sustainable brands, and after an initial internet search left me with only wooden and cork options, I was a little discouraged. I knew I wanted something with a classic round face that was built to last, and had a chic and elegant feel.
