Sustainable

sustainability: (noun) the ability to be sustained, supported, upheld or confirmed. 

The idea of sustainability is something that I’ve thought a lot about recently. My lifestyle is definitely not sustainable right now: from my work habits, to my shopping habits, and everything in between. It’s been a vicious cycle of overindulging and then purging. Rinse and repeat. I work myself until I break. I repeat songs until I never want to hear it again. I buy clothes for the thrill of it, and sometimes never actually wear what I buy. It wasn’t I started the Capsule Wardrobe experiment a few months ago that I realized that this lifestyle can no longer be sustained. It was just so wasteful in so many ways.

Since then, we’ve been trying to be more intentional with the clothes that we buy, to not waste food, and to strike a balance between work and play. Trying being the keyword. I definitely was tempted by the Madewell sale and picked up a few things for my wardrobe. It is still a journey to break old habits, but I think we’re making progress. And in the end, that’s all we can ask of ourselves, right?

I’ve also become more interested in sustainable fashion brands lately. I connected with Denise from Equal Uprise about a year ago, who opened the door to the idea of shopping more responsibly and being aware of where my clothes come from. Parker Clay is another brand that I recently discovered. I love that both brands support international artisans. Brands like this make shopping even more enjoyable than before because you not only get cute clothes, but also know that you’re supporting good people.
