This week I'm getting into the holiday spirit! Halloween is over and it's onward to Turkey Day and Christmas! I'm working on my Thanksgiving , Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day outfits now and I'll be sharing them with you in a few weeks. I'll give you some hints about brands I'm choosing now.
This year consider ordering your turkey for Thanksgiving or Christmas from Grass Roots Farmer's Cooperative. They are supported by Heifer International, which happens to be one of my favorite charities. The turkey's are pasture-raised by Heifer USA farmers. You can $20 off with the code: HEIFERGOBLE.
2. Amour Vert
This brand is the perfect combination of sustainability and feminine style. I tend to really love classic pieces that are a bit romantic or bohemian, which means I trend more towards feminine looks, and Amour Vert's aesthetic is pretty much on par with my personal style. They have lots of silk and organic cotton pieces to browse! I'm thinking about plaid this Christmas...hint..hint!
I'm obsessed with this essential oil blend from Doterra. "This proprietary blend combines Wild Orange, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and Clove with the fresh and airy scent of Siberian and Douglas Fir, creating an essential oil blend that’s a Doterra Christmas tradition." (Doterra.com) I like to add a couple of extra drops of orange and Douglas fir. Because, it's not overly pine smelling it makes it a great oil for Thanksgiving as well. I diffuse it all of November and December.
One of my favorite ways to shop sustainable is buying consignment. If you're new to the journey of sustainable fashion starting with consignment is easy and doesn't require any research! My favorite online consignment shop is The Real Real. The shoes I plan to wear with my Christmas outfit are from the site and I'm anxiously awaiting their arrival!
This sustainable clothing brand out of California is a little bit edgier than Amour Vert, but for sure offers amazing pieces that make up a great wardrobe. One of the pieces I ordered recently for my holiday outfits is from The Reformation and I've shared about them in previous posts. Check them out!
