I’m not sure if you can believe this, but TODAY is the second day of fall! Crazy, right? I hope we get that crisp weather here in Texas very soon. Until then, I will keep prepping my wardrobe for the new season. One fall piece I love is this tweed dress. It’s a little shorter than I normally wear but just too adorable. The collar also can be detached, which is nice for that extra versatility. Since it’s not chilly enough to wear tights and booties with it yet, I opted for nude heels. And I of course had to make my legs glow, so I used my go-to trick that you can buy here. I’m telling you, it is a life saver! Everything in this post can conveniently be found in one place. So today on the blog, I want to highlight my favorite fall style and also talk sustainable fashion with Nordstrom!
You can shop the dress I’m wearing from Nordstrom here. But did you know that Nordstrom also has an array of Sustainable Fashion brands like Reformation, Eileen Fisher, Theory and Treasure & Bond? Now you may wonder what exactly a sustainable fashion brand is. I did too. There are actually three different categories that can be considered a sustainable fashion brand. Let me explain.
This essentially refers to styles that are made from sustainably sourced materials. Everything you see here is made with at least 50% sustainably sourced materials, like organic cotton, recycled polyester and certified materials. For instance, DL1961 is a great high quality and sustainable denim brand I definitely recommend. Their jeans really tend to retain their shape well over time – probably because they’re made with such quality materials. I love their jeans and owned several pairs over the years.
Sustainable fashion can also be anything manufactured in factories that meet higher social/environmental standards. All of these products come from factories that better protect their employees and our planet through offering empowerment programs to workers, ensuring fair wages, and managing chemicals and resource use. One of my favorite brands that is both responsibly manufactured and sustainably sourced is Reformation. I covered this feminine brand on the blog in this post.
Finally, sustainable fashion also includes products like TOMS that give back in some way. These TOMS mules are so cute for fall! Patagonia also is a very charitable brand, and I think they carry the warmest jackets for the fall/winter season. Here is a great range of pieces you can buy that give back to the environment or society in some way. When you buy one of these items, some of the proceeds go toward benefitting people, animals or the planet. I love that!
We all want to do better, don’t we? I love feeling good about my purchases, knowing that what I bought is a source for positive change. Shop all of Nordstrom’s sustainable fashion styles here, plus my own sustainable fall picks in the boutique below.
