I haven’t posted a bunch of great outfits here or on Instagram lately as I haven’t quite been feeling like myself. Today is the first day in a while where I feel like me, so I thought it warranted a little outfit post. You guys have likely noticed, you’re all very perceptive and caring.
There are a few reasons for my weird mood. Firstly, my Instagram account has grown exponentially over the past week (thanks to a few shares from larger accounts), and I’m still navigating what that means, what type of content people want to see, and, I guess, somewhat psyching myself out about what I should post to keep my followers engaged.
I’ve also been a bit in my head a lot as the first year of marriage definitely is hard (you can read my musings on that over on Instagram, but basically the wedding hangover and feeling deeply sad when it’s over is such a real thing), and I think my outfits have been reflecting my mood.
But I am LOVING today’s outfit – which is the good news! So, I wanted to share it with you guys.
The only ethically made pieces are my accessories. The sweater is older and the jeans are newer and were much needed. I love them! I think it is okay to purchase pieces that aren’t ethically made if you’ve really thought the purchase through, and know it is something you will use. I was having trouble finding a pair of jeans in this style that fit me, so Madewell ended up being the best solution. Do you think it’s okay to purchase non-ethically-made items, if they really fill a need?
Sweater: Madewell, old, but I love this ethically made Slumlove Sweater Co. one, which is quite similar!
Jeans: Madewell Perfect Summer Jean
Bag: Cuyana Small Carryall Tote (I’ve been thinking of reviewing this bag – would anyone be interested in that?)
Necklace: Windblown Jewelry Horizon Necklace
Watch: Berg + Betts (I don’t think this camel color is currently available).
Hope you’re all having a good week – we’re halfway there!
