The Moral Wardrobe: Pretty in Pink


Contains affiliate links

Sometimes it’s good to be forced outside of your sartorial comfort zone. 

Case in point: I am decidedly not a pink person, but I received this kimono in the Spring Causebox I accidentally ordered and in the name of good stewardship decided I should probably try to get some use out of it. I actually really like it paired with bright lips and a high contrast, tomboy-ish crew neck. It makes the pink seem less fussy, and that’s just the way I want it.
     


Ethical Details: Jacket – Symbology, a Causebox exclusive design; Tee – Everlane; Jeans – thrifted; Clogs – thrifted (try ebay for similar styles); Tote bag – c/o LEYO New York

Last time I wore these cropped, thrifted jeans in public, a friend commented that they seem like something a 30-something would wear (and since I’ll be 30 in September, this is relevant). I didn’t really know how to take it, but I think she meant that there’s something kind of un-fashion about them, which in many ways is a good thing. It means that I’m dressing more for me than I used to. Of course, if she had known that cropped, frump-leaning jeans were a BIG DEAL in the fashion blogging world, she may have thought I was just a trend follower. Context is everything.

In any case, I don’t think these jeans are particularly flattering, but they’re super comfy and only cost me $4.00.

P.S. I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend whether you celebrate or not. Holy Week and Easter are my favorite church events of the year. This year I sang in 5 services and loved (almost) every second of it. We were also blessed with delightful spring weather and blossoming trees, so it was really the perfect long weekend.
