so here are the pieces i'm wearing this month:
~cream handmade (now indigo)
~olive button down
total pieces: 13
this is a fun stack! i thought about what silhouettes i want to wear right now:
~soft pants (jumpsuit) + top or sweater
~leggings + top (layered over a longer tank- not counted because i also wear them for pj's + workout)
~top + jeans
~dress + sweater or not
on warmer days i can remove layers:
~jumpsuits can be worn on their own
~leggings + longer tank
~dress without the sweater
it's encouraging to know that most of these pieces are ethical in that i know where they were made and that the makers were fairly treated. the jeans were thrifted, and 4 pieces are from madewell, j crew, and clarks uk. these companies do have social responsibility statements, but i am not quite sure how trustworthy they are. i purchased these items years ago and i believe that the best way to honor the makers is to wear and appreciate their work now.
there are 2 new pieces in this stack.
1. i sold a striped tee that didn't get worn much and replaced it with this everlane tee. i like that it has a shorter length that will layer well over my jumpsuits and high-waisted pants. it also looks cute over a longer tank with leggings.
2. i sold a sweatshirt that was replaced by the see-sun top that i wrote about earlier.
i'm really happy with these new pieces that i collected over the last couple months. i feel like the hands that made them were respected. the items are all of good quality, totally "me" and should last. i'm ready to crunch through the leaves, make soup, soak in the yellow light, eat apples, light candles, and take a road trip. yay, october!
