As we were brainstorming post ideas for the new year, Beth and I thought it would be fun to share our top five favorite ethical clothes in our personal wardrobes. We have asked some of our friends to join in with us so keep a look out for their posts in the future! I wanted to get the ball rolling with five of the pieces I’ve added to my wardrobe over the last year. These are pieces that I reach for often and make me feel awesome when I wear them!
I’ll admit that this outfit was a total impulse buy at our first ethical pop-up shop but I have never regretted it. I have a long waist so jumpsuits often don’t hit me in the right spot. Putting these separates together for a jumpsuit illusion was a perfect workaround for me and it allows me to style the pants and top separately creating an even more diverse wardrobe!
Beth and I both own this Elegantees tunic and agree this it is a closet essential! It comes in several different colors and is the perfect piece to throw on with leggings or skinny jeans. Remember, you can get 10% off any Elegantees purchase with our code ‘DressWellDoGood’!
Everlane* has an array of fabulous basics so it was hard for me to choose which long sleeve top I really wanted. In the end I selected the Air Tee because of the additional length. When it arrived, I was pleasantly surprised with the weight and feel of the fabric. It is very light-weight and ideal for Texas winters. It’s thin enough to tuck into pants or a skirt and I love wearing it with the Symbology pants I mentioned above!
These showstopping shoes were a splurge for me, but again, no regrets here! I haven’t worn heels very often since having kids and I didn’t realize how much I had missed it. I was surprised to find that I could easily wear these heels when I’m hanging out with my kids because they have a chunkier heel and are very light-weight. And let’s be honest, the compliments I get when wearing these shoes make the extra cost totally worth it!
I used to trade out my bags all the time until my Mom surprised me with this leather tote from Noonday Collection. Now it’s my go-to bag all the time. It fits my laptop and I can also carry all my mom essentials in style. The rustic leather means that everyday wear enhances its beauty over time and I love that it has a zipper and stands up on its own!
Honorable Mention: Fair Indigo Princess Seam Organic Fair Trade Pocket Dress
I know I’ve talked about the dress I wore for Dressember a lot so I decided not to make it one of my top five, but who am I kidding? I love this dress and I am so glad I chose it for my Dressember dress! I wore it at least 75% of the month and it was always so comfortable and versatile to style.
