Photo Friday | National Secondhand Wardrobe Day

This year, one of my personal goals was to start switching to more sustainable clothing and accessories. Under that goal, anything I would buy would be vintage; secondhand; made of organic, recycled or sustainable material; or produced under fair trade practices or with fair-trade materials.

Throughout the year, I’ve come to discover that my favorite way to be sustainably stylish is to shop secondhand. It’s a excellent way to keep clothing out of landfills, and it’s the most friendly-on-the-wallet option.

My favorite secondhand dress that's quickly become a summer staple.

Secondhand tops, shorts, dresses, skirts, shoes, purses, jewelry, and scarves make up a large portion of my wardrobe, and I love it. (Contrary to all the photos in this post that make it look like I only have secondhand dresses!) One person’s trash is absolutely another person’s treasure.

Why am I telling you all this now? It happens to be National Secondhand Wardrobe Day today! Plus, last Thursday, August 17, was Thrift Shop Day. I may or may not have celebrated both by ordering a few fall pieces from ThredUp...

Completely unrelated to National Secondhand Wardrobe Day, I hope you all stay safe and dry this if you are anywhere near the path of Hurricane Harvey! Please stay prepared and follow all warnings.
