I love the turn of the seasons- Winter to Spring, Spring to Summer. There really is something in the air that makes everyone smile a little brighter as we finally pull off our layers and get some sunshine.
Maybe it’s everything new around me when a new season rolls around, but the familiar craving to get new stuff also seems to join the new season feels. And where this might be a great time to indulge in a few new ethical pieces for many, my overstuffed closet and NY apartment tells me it is not one for me.
That’s where my new JORD watch comes in. It’s something new- a perfect compromise for my shopping craving- but something versatile and a true investment in my wardrobe.
When it comes to shopping for a formal occasion like a friend’s wedding, a gala (if you’re about that life), or even just a birthday dinner, it’s a little hard to find ethical options. This is why I’m so excited to share Lace & Scone with you- a truly unique brand that makes being ethical and giving back fun and luxurious.
I’m not usually one to make New Year’s resolutions, but this year I’ve got a list rattling around my brain with a common green theme. Before I tell you what my specific resolutions are, I want to share why I’m going in a direction of sustainability so intentionally this year…
I’ll be honest with you, I haven’t always been interested in sustainability or the environment. In fact, as a high school student I went out of my way to not be identified with anything too “green.” I had this misconception that environmental advocates must always care more for the planet than for people. I thought there was some sort of gap between social justice and environmental care and that I could only care about one of those two issues.
Oh was I wrong.

Have you ever fallen in love with a dress at your favorite store or snagged an amazing tee online, only to realize it doesn’t fit quite right at home?? I’m really bad at talking myself into buying or keeping these pieces, thinking “I’ll make it work!” But more often than not, the piece ends up at the back of my closet, never worn, taunting me with my bad decision every time I do catch a glimpse of it. #rude
And when it can take more than 5,000 gallons of water to manufacture ONE cotton t-shirt and a pair of jeans, not to mention the additional footprint of shipping, washing, and chemicals used to dye clothes, an unused piece of clothing doesn’t seem so harmless – and is definitely not sustainable.
