04.09.2019- What I Wore Today #383

Over the last few months, I've been strategically investing my pennies on some staple pieces which have serious staying power. As I've grown up, I've tended to veer away from a lot of the fast-fashion destinations which I used to frequent as a teenager, and now I'm much more conscious about what (and how frequently) I buy. With the environmental impact of our throwaway culture in no doubt, I've become much more mindful about my shopping habits, choosing now to spend a bit more on well-made pieces which I know will score in the longevity stakes- as well as standing up to repeat wears and washes. Not that that necessarily has to break the bank either- indeed, in the end of summer sales I've been lucky enough to snap up some real bargains:

Tee- Self Care Co. (via Plastic Freedom)
Trousers- Rue de Femme
Sunglasses- Ganni
Shoes- Flossy

I picked these Rue de Femme trousers up in their sale back in July for about half price, after spotting them in a local boutique at the start of the summer. I've been after a pair of pink trews for a while now, and these are fantastic- they fit really nicely, and I love the slightly flared leg. They're also nice and high-waisted, and work really well with lots of my existing wardrobe favourites- including this Be Kind tee from the Self Care Co., which I picked up from the fantastic Plastic Freedom- a one-stop-shop for plenty of plastic-free purchases. They plant a tree for every order placed too- well worth exploring if you're looking to become a bit more conscious in your day-to-day habits. 

Are you becoming more mindful of how you shop?
