Mini Stripes and Thrifted Jeans

I love stripes! They’re classic and timeless. I wore a t-shirt by the ethical, organic company Armed Angels today. It is a mini-striped shirt. No need to be worried about looking wider. Skinny stripes don’t have that effect.

I wore a cardigan by Amour Vert over my shirt because it’s too cold in Seattle now for just a tee. The vertical color blocking effect of an open cardi will offset any worries about horizontal stripes. Amour Vert is made in the USA.

I was lucky to find a pair of pre-loved Current/Elliott jeans on eBay. The boyfriend cut is casual and comfortable, and the length is perfect for showing off my shoes.

I admit I created this outfit around these awesome shoes. I love the black and white theme. They’re by NAE (No Animals Exploited) and are vegan patent.

With the money I saved buying second-hand jeans, I could afford all the eco pieces from my store, Drizzle & Shine. Drop by if you’re in Seattle!

    Yes, I agree! The whole look is very cute. In person too! 😉
    Can’t wait to get my next fix in your shop. I truly love everything I buy in there and also reading and learning about the different labels you feature.
