Eco-Loverly Fall Fashion Finds

The Fall is upon us and while summer and warm weather may be coming to an end there is plenty about the Fall to be excited about.   Fall does happen to be one of my favorite times of year.  I love when the weather is not too hot but not too cold so you can still enjoy being outside with out being afraid of sweating.  I will miss the beach days but there is always next Spring and Summer.   Since the change in weather is here I figured I would find you some great fall eco-fashion finds that I love and I hope you will love just the same! Enjoy!

Pursue Navajo Tank

Pursue Navajo Tank

 

 

 

 

Pursue Navajo Tank is perfect for fall! The colors and pattern are right on track for the season. I know you might be thinking HEY! That is totally a summer tank but no I disagree! Layered with the right cardigan, scarf and knit hat! It is just what you need for your faux suede and fringe boots!  The highlights of this beyond cute tank are that it is made in the USA, GMO free and organic!!! The graphic is also printed with water based inks. The price is a little steep for a tank $52 but to have good quality ethical clothing I have to give in sometimes.

Pursue Fairisle Drape

Pursue Fairisle Drape

 

 

 

The Fairisle Drape is exactly perfect for fall! No heavy coat necessary and drapes are so easy to move in and coordinate accessories around. I have long been a fan of drapes! This is another item from Puruse and has many of the same highlights as the Navajo Tank in that it is GMO free, made in the USA, and organic but this one also boasts recycled packaging! Which is always a plus to see when you open your box! The price is $56 which isn’t bad for a “coat” of sorts.

Stardust VI Earrings

The Stardust VI Earrings are probably some of the most beautiful earrings I have ever seen and I would like to have a pair right this very second.  I can’t even explain to you how beautiful I think these earrings are!  The Stardust Earrings are made from reclaimed brass which makes them kind of really cool besides amazingly beautiful. The earrings are also made and developed by a Woman Owned business which is always something I support! I really actually want a pair and will most definitely have it on my Christmas list this year! The price is $88 which for reclaimed/recycled jewelry is actually not bad for this amazingly fab set!

If you don’t know about Simple Shoes or have never heard about the brand here is a piece of their about us section:

With all the over-built, over-hyped products out there, it’s pretty hard to find sustainable shoes that you can live with. So we started Simple, your stereotypical, anti-stereotype brand offering good shoes and a big dose of reality. About a gazillion pairs later… give or take a few… we’ve managed to learn a few things. Well, actually a lot of things. And none more important than this: HOW we make our shoes is just as important as WHY we make them. That means finding more sustainable ways of doing business so we can make a gazillion more.Which pretty much is where we are today… at the crossroads of here and now, aware of our responsibility to the planet while trying to pay the bills. The nice little shoe company getting in touch with its inner hippie.
