One of the most common things I hear from people when I start talking about ethical fashion is, “But ethical fashion is so… boring. Isn’t it just a bunch of macrame vests and sunflowers or hand-knitted sweaters?”
Okay, maybe that last part isn’t true. But I do hear from people all the time that they just don’t think ethical fashion can be all that stylish, trendy, or even “cute.” And one of the things that I aim to do with this blog is show that you can be stylish, trendy, and cute – AND support ethical brands! There are *so* many amazing ethical fashion options out there!
This outfit is one of my new favorites and it happened by accident, really. I love this Agnes & Dora pencil skirt and was looking for another excuse to wear it. I love the floral print, but I really love how soft, stretchy, and downright COMFORTABLE it is.
The Flourish Market (my FAVORITE ethical fashion store in Raleigh) carries a bunch of my favorite Elegantees pieces in petal pink and this Brianna top was a must-have! I love how it really softens up the black in the pencil skirt and makes it more springy.
This would be a great outfit for work, church, or even a girl’s night out! Changing the shoes or jewelry can totally change the look.
Now what about you? When you think of ethical fashion, what do you think of? What are your favorite spring outfit ideas right now?
