Today's inspiration comes from fair trade brand Reformation. They make edgy, trendy clothes that are really cute (and come with a pretty hefty price tag unfortunately!). Their slogan is "Being naked is the #1 most sustainable option. We're #2." and I would argue that along with being naked, reusing/wearing something you already own tops that list, too. My dress is from 2012 (see below) and instead of buying new, I'm pulling it out of my closet again this spring. I styled it with a straw hat and purse, and wedge slides, much like my inspiration but also to bring the dress up to date with some trendy accessories. Polka dots seem to never really go out of style and can be a good investment; check out some options below!
