Each year when the weather warms up, my style goes through a shift towards all things flowing, billowy, ruffled, and romantic. Sizzling summer days conjure up visions of 1970s music festivals and the Victorian revival styles that have always had a place in my heart. My more minimal basics move to the back of the wardrobe to make way for white lace blouses, floral dresses, and flowing maxi skirts. And speaking of flowing maxi skirts, let’s talk about the lilac-hued number I’m wearing in this post!
February always passes quickly since it’s such a short month, but this year it was so full of activity that it rushed by at an even greater speed! Today I’ll be sharing some of the highlights of my month that are both personal and blog related. Stick around to the end of this post for a little peek at some of my March plans as well as my February favorites video!
But first, here are the memories that brought me joy this month.
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.
Often times when I’ve brought up the topic of ethical and sustainable fashion, friends respond by saying something to effect of “that’s nice, but there’s no way I could afford that.” That was my mindset when I first started to look into alternative brands as well, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the affordable, but still fair, options that are on the market today. I’ve been able to find many brands that are comparable in price or even less expensive than fast fashion brands, and while affordability is a relative term, I hope there will be something for everyone among the brands I share. Today I’d like to start with knit basics such as tees, leggings, and tanks.
Move over fast fashion, we’ve got better alternatives!
For the final part of my gift guide series, I thought it would be fun to share some gift ideas for the gentlemen in your life! Most of us have men to shop for, and if you’re anything like me, you may find it challenging to come up with unique gift ideas. I have two brothers who are also in their 20s that I shop for as well as my dad, so today I’m sharing some gifts that I’ve chosen in the past and gifts that I just think are cool! I got my brothers to look through this guide, so all gifts are officially guy approved!
For this guide I’ve included a variety of categories ranging from style to housewares, so there is something here for every guy on your list.
