the moral wardrobe: snow no

Ethical Details: Cardigan - Seamly.co; Top - Everlane; Jeans - thrifted; Boots - thrifted; Gloves - American Apparel; Scarf - thrifted (a looong time ago)

Pardon any weird facial expressions in these photos - I was desperately trying to avoid snow blindness. We got at least 6-7 inches of snow last Thursday. I took a walk down the street to take in the pristine view, but I tired quickly trudging through the snow and had to circle back within a few minutes. You can see the photos I took on my walk here

I finally bought the Seamly.co Wrapped Cardigan a couple weeks ago and I don't regret it at all! I haven't experimented with any styles, but I love how long and cozy it is, like being in a blanket (Daniel likes to call my obsessive blanket wearing a Leah Burrito). 

Oh! Welcome to all of you who found me through Rachel Held Evans' blog. You can learn more about me or find my favorite ethical retailers by clicking on the About and Resources tabs at the top of the page. If you have any questions, feel free to send me an email at leahcwise@gmail.com.

Best. Coat. Ever. I love being swaddled in pockets of faux goose down. 

The thrift shop determines snow days by county school closures, so I've been off all week. I went in today anyway and tinkered around for a bit, but I have lots of laundry and packing to do at home because we're headed to Florida on Friday! There's really no better time to flee south.

In other news, I updated the Resources page to include a few more shops, so check it out. And if you're looking for a specific item, feel free to email me at leahcwise@gmail.com.

*Levi's is taking steps to improve working conditions at their factories. Though not quite there yet, they're doing more than most global brands. I bought these more than a year ago and I wouldn't put them on an ethical brands list yet, but it's a step forward, at least.
