the moral wardrobe: spring simplicity

spring outfit asos dress

Bare legs! Finally! It was almost too hot today, which is fine, as long as it moderates out into a lovely springtime for at least a month. I slept in, ate chocolate croissants, went to the mall, ate a wrap from Jason’s Deli, updated my etsy shop, and went shopping at Trader Joe’s. It was a great day – I feel like I haven’t had one of those in awhile (or maybe just a week).

When life gets stressful, I tend to allow myself to indulge in ways that are unhealthy; I’m a little bit of a comfort eater, but mostly I’m a comfort shopper. I’m not proud of it and it’s something I’m working on; it’s hard to replace unhealthy stress relief activities with better ones because the change itself is stressful. And that stress piles on top of the other stress and you’re a ball of stress, dizzy with eating and shopping and crying.

But really, things are fine.

Ethical choices are bolded below:

  • Dress – Vero Moda via Asos (eco-friendly, too!)
  • Jacket – Plato’s Closet
  • Necklace – Boutique Minimaliste
  • Shoes – Asos
