With the clocks moving forward I have started to think about blue skies and sunshine and picnics and just all round more agreeable weather for doing fun stuff outdoors. I’m itching to get back out on my bike for after work cycles (no fun in the dark) and spend more than five minutes at the park with my girls without my fingers turning blue!
Clothing wise, after a winter spent wrapped up in several layers of knitwear, I’ve been doing a little bit of online browsing, just for fun, for more warmer weather attire. I’ve whittled down my favourites, and come up with my Spring ethical clothing lust list. Here’s what’s caught my eye lately:
This Thought Clothing embroidered chambray dress* (£79.90) is calling my name. Although bare legs and sandals weather still seems so very very far away, I’m sure it would work with tights and boots until the weather warms up.
Lost Shapes have created this 100% organic cotton denim shirt* with a pair of cheeky screen-printed pigeons (£43) and it’s love at first sight. My partner has a Lost Shapes t-shirt which is years old now, but still a favourite of his and still looks immaculate. This stuff is the best quality.
I have never tried Po-Zu shoes before, but gosh these vegan and ethically made linen slip-ons* (£89) look lovely. Definitely worth saving up for.
Also on my lust list is this pretty Mara top* (£69) from People Tree, so that I can pretend to be a free-spirited bohemian even though I’d probably be doing non-bohemian things, like the school run or putting laundry away! I joke – it’s really pretty and it’s definitely way up there on my want list!
Last on my lust list is this Mushroom Medley organic t-shirt (£28) by the new-to-me, charmingly named and affordable ethical clothing brand Otter & Goat. It’s covered in twelve different varieties of mushrooms so you can look like a fun guy in it!
Ok, that was a terrible pun, I’ll admit. I’ll get my coat…!
