Valentine’s Day is coming up, and I love having any excuse to dress up, so you could say I’m a fan of the holiday.
But I also love a good casual outfit, so I put together a chill Valentine’s Day look for a more relaxed day. I’m in love with loose sweaters, and this one from American Eagle is super soft. Most sizes are out, so I found a similar one from H&M.
Also, I love this scarf from ilymix, which is an up and coming company based in China that sells a ton of cute scarves and hats. If you use my code jessie20, you get 20 percent off of your next order! I love their products, and I admire their company goals.
I try to be careful of the brands I represent, but now it’s starting to feel like I could do more, and seek out more brands that are eco-friendly or ethically sourced.
With that being said, I’m starting to research more about sustainable clothing. Usually, I’m more concerned about how much things cost, and not how they cost the environment, or if they’re ethically sourced or not. The more I look into it, the harder it becomes to ignore the fact that a lot of our clothes aren’t coming from ethical sources, or are hurting the environment. Of course, it’s difficult to find brands like these that are inexpensive, but I can’t wait to learn more about living as ethically as possible.
Some of my favorite companies that are eco-friendly and ethical are Happy Earth, (get 15 percent off with my code JSPANG24), EcoTools, Patagonia and SheaMoisture. SheaMoisture is amazing – they don’t test on animals or use all these weird chemicals, and their products are perfect for sensitive skin. Also they have biodegradable makeup remover wipes (!!). Check out this blog post for more of my favorite brands that are doing good here.
One of the main reasons I have this platform is to try and bring attention to issues I’m passionate about, and I’m a firm believer that you “vote with your dollars.” What you choose to spend your money on can make a difference, even if you feel like you don’t because you’re just one person. But, money does talk, so let’s try to use it for the better.
Let me know some eco-friendly brands in the comments, I would love to take a look at them.
