I have a few pieces of dressier clothes for special occasions
which are stored in our guest room closet.
Most items I have had for a long time and many are vintage from thrift shops.
Saint James striped top and Eileen Fisher vest.
I love how easy it is to get dressed with a small wardrobe.
The key is to have a few basic pieces that mix and match
accessories to add that little extra oomph.
It's been a gradual shift and I have learned a LOT from other bloggers.
Buying fewer pieces, investing in quality long lasting garments just makes sense.
I recently read that the "Fast Fashion" industry
is the top contributor to climate change.
Eileen Fisher offers clothing recycling
where EF garments are redesigned and made into new pieces of clothing.
The company also sources organic materials.
Her ethical approach to the fashion industry is one of the reasons that I am willing to pay a little more for a garment.
Feeling better wearing something that is not harming our planet.
She received a lovely cashmere sweater from them made using recycled cashmere...recycling fashion is just such great news.
Comfortable too, showing up in the same or similar outfits.
No more feeling pressured to continually
Instead the extra money I can use for...
Experiences, travel, date nights with my husband,
lessons and clothes for the grandchildren.
Rainy day today...
perfect for getting some things done inside The Humble Bungalow.
Laundry has been accomplished...
A Fall pot roast dinner has been prepped.
I've repainted the hobby room floor as it was getting chipped by years of wear.
After I publish this post
I plan to pop the kettle on and enjoy a few chapters in my current book
