Safari Jacket with Scarf and Jeans

No, I’m not heading out on safari, but I am wearing a handy safari-style jacket. I found this in Vancouver, and as soon as I checked to make sure the sleeves were faux leather, I bought it.safari jacket

Jacket: Bedo
Jeans: Suzy Shier
Sweater: Express
Scarf: Bebenoir
Boots: Novacas
Tote: Crystalyn Kae

It works well with lots of outfits, but this time, I paired it with a bright sweater and scarf with a bird motif (Put a bird on it!).

I’ve been trying to shop locally, buy sustainably, and support fair trade brands. I find these types of articles last longer, even though they often cost more–so it evens out. Of course it will take a while to convert my wardrobe to the ethical closet I want it to be, but with each outfit, I try to incorporate such pieces.

For this outfit, my Novacas boots fit the bill. Made in Portugal, from green (non-leather) materials, the company prides itself in good working conditions and fair wages.

My tote is glazed fabric and handmade by Crystalyn Kae, so it counts too (made in the USA, small business, sustainable, and ethical). I love her work and I’d encourage you to check out the line. She was one of the first brands to reach out to me to review a product, and I fell in love with her bags.

I’m joining the Penniless Socialite, Rachel the Hat, and Happiness at Mid-Life for link-ups. See what everyone else is wearing!

  2. That scarf is so pretty with this outfit. I like the idea of shopping locally, I do it with my food but have not translated to my clothes. Thank you for joining TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you Thursday.

    • Thanks Chelsea! It’s not always easy, but it’s my goal šŸ™‚ I just found out that the USA has lost 70,000 shoe-making jobs since 1979. Shopping is good for the economy, and shopping local is even better!

  4. Great look. LOVE the scarf. The colours paired together give off such a warm feeling. It must be Spring šŸ™‚

    WOW, I didn’t know about the staggering job loss numbers in the USA in the shoe making industry. šŸ˜¦
