Outfit Details: Top – secondhand; Jeans – AE; Shoes – Sseko Designs, fair trade; Fake Tattoo – tattly
You can tell fall wants to show itself, but the temperature’s still hovering at 75. I put on my sandals as soon as I got home; might as well sun my toes while I can.
Being an ethical style blogger is stressful sometimes. While I’ve gotten much better at buying things through more sustainable channels, I find that some things are awfully hard to find on the secondhand or fair trade market. I finally just gave up with jeans and bought a couple pairs that fit me well. My logic is that dark wash, good quality denim will last through several seasons, so at least I’m not succumbing to a trend. It’s not a perfect justification, but it is what it is. It’s something I’m living with, but not celebrating.
