the moral wardrobe: simple black & gray

This week has alternated between humid, intense heat and summer-like storms. I love it! Reminds me of Florida. Since all my grad student friends, including my husband, are finally free of their academic duties, we’ve been doing lots of celebrating: dinner parties, Mexican food, horror movie night. It makes me feel like I’m on vacation, too.

I’m happy to have a flexible schedule so I can hang out with everyone. This time last year I had just started a full time job with an evening shift that really limited social activities. I feel so fortunate to have an opportunity to enjoy this summer to its fullest potential. One of my friends just booked her flight up to C-Ville, so I’ll get to show her around town in less than a month!

Ethical choices are bolded below. Retailers taking steps to become more ethical are bolded in gray.

  • Top – American Apparel
  • Skirt – Seamly.co
  • Shoes – Sseko
  • Belt – thrifted

    That last photo is so lovely. All of this is lovely, actually. I like the simple color palette and styling. Hooray for flexible schedules!

  2. Love this outfit! How do you like your Ssekos? I’m considering getting a pair.

      I’m going to write a post about them, but overall I really like them. The footbed is really comfortable and the versatility is fun, though some styles don’t stay on as well as others, so they’re not quite as versatile as they seem. I also think the chiffon ribbons are the way to go because the cotton fabric ones wrinkle easily, especially if you end up in a rain storm.
