I love a good classic pair of pajamas, and I especially love them during the holidays. Think Mindy Lahiri and Jessica Day style. They’re comfortable, stylish, and just scream Christmas morning. When I first started to get into ethical fashion, cute pjs were hard to come by, but thankfully, as in most categories, the options have expanded. So if you’re ready to treat yourself (or a friend,) to some holiday pajamas and still shop mindfully, this post is for you!
One of the few stores in my area that I can walk into and find ethical fashion options at is Madewell. I love that Madewell does exclusive collaborations with various slow fashion brands, giving the brands exposure, and allowing me the chance to see and shop these beautiful items in person. In the last few months, they have really stepped up their game both with their Rivet & Thread made in the USA options, and their beautiful collaborations, even expanding into natural and cruelty free beauty products. No, this post isn’t sponsored, I simply hope it gives you some options for better choices, especially those of you who’s cities have limited brick and mortar stores like me!

It’s time for another installment of 5 Wardrobe Essentials, and today I’m excited to introduce you to Emily DeLong, creator of Margu Design. Emily is a designer and seamstress based out of Northwest Arkansas, and I’m excited for us to get a slow fashion creator’s perspective on wardrobe essentials. Her beautiful line, Margu, focuses on impeccable attention to detail, sustainable practices, and is all cut and sewn in her Arkansas studio. Margu’s Fall/Winter collection was released last month, and each piece is just exquisite. Be sure to hop over and check it out once you’ve read this post! Emily has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to ethical and sustainable fashion, and I know you’ll enjoy reading about her favorites today.
Hi friends! I’ve recently started sharing a few sewing tutorials over on the YouTube channel, and I thought I’d start to post them here on the blog as well. Several of you have expressed interest in learning how to sew or in getting back into making your own clothes, so I hope you find these videos helpful and inspiring! Today’s project? A pleated midi skirt! This particular skirt was inspired by one I saw at Club Monaco a while back, and I love how it turned out. There is no pattern required, and it would be a great beginning project.
As much as I’m looking forward to the fall season, this year I can actually say that I will miss summer clothes! Usually I’m a fall and winter kind of girl in the wardrobe department, but this summer I was able to put together outfits I loved and learn a bit more about my personal style in the warmer months. Today I thought it would be fun to look back and round up my most worn pieces of the summer season in a video. I have five articles of clothing to share with you with a few accessories thrown in for good measure!
