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.

Today’s look is simple (surprise, surprise!), but could easily have a more dressed up feel with a few tweaks. As it stands, it’s a perfect work option for me, but could easily go out to lunch or the movies.
