Well, Happy St. Patty’s Day, everyone!! It’s…a bit…different this year, hey? We’re celebrating as best we can over here with homemade shamrock cut-outs in the window, green beer (OK, just beer…I was afraid of the green dye), and wearing green-ish clothes. (I kind of forgot about St. Patty’s Day and didn’t get a chance to get anything festive for the kids to wear with allthethings going on.) But I am wearing these pants. And they are green.
The Sustainable Green Cargo Pants I Can’t Stop Wearing
I’ve been wearing these pants a lot since I first got them, especially now that we’re stuck indoors for awhile. They’re super-soft and kind-of feel like pjs, but look a bit more put-together. And, maybe more importantly, they help me feel more put-together because–let’s be honest–it’s a struggle to work from home and not wear pjs 100% of the time…so…win-win? They’re also sustainably made from TENCEL™ lyocell, an “eco-friendly fiber produced from wood pulp sourced from sustainably managed and certified forests.” (Take an extra 50% off the sale price with code NEWNEW).
Right now, more than ever, I’m thinking about where my clothes come from, what they’re made of and who’s producing them. This denim jacket from ABLE is a new favorite of mine, found when I was Googling all about sustainable denim. ABLE is “an ethical fashion brand that employs and empowers women as a solution to end poverty.” They publish their wages from all around the world, and even came up with a “social impact reporting tool” and product label called ACCOUNTABLE (read about it here), designed to give customers a transparent look at a brand’s manufacturing efforts. And their clothes are good. I really, really like this jacket. It’s super-soft and perfectly broken-in as soon as you take it out of the bag. It’s one of those investment pieces that will go with everything and last for a really long time . . . longer than this quarantine. (#smallwins)
J. Crew Seaside Pants (size 6) – Extra 50% off sale price with code NEWNEW and in multiple colors.
Henley Bodysuit (size m) – I sized up because it’s a bodysuit (I didn’t want the bottom to be too small) and the medium is perfect. No panty lines, and I love not having to worry about tucking it in.
Siren Booties – I love that these boots come up so high so I don’t have to worry about my socks showing–although these are comfy enough that I don’t necessarily need to wear socks. (I do it for the extra warmth.)
Hang in there, guys…we’re all in this together, right?
