How to Ease into Clean Beauty With Baby Steps

Understanding what clean beauty means is not an easy endeavor. I started including more clean beauty content on the blog because I think it’s important to provide evidence-based data so you as a consumer can educate yourself, recognize toxic ingredients and decide whether you want to incorporate clean beauty in your own life. If you do, the question becomes how do you ease into clean beauty without uprooting your entire way of life? The answer is baby steps.

The Ribbed Midi Sweater Dress

February has arrived, which means I’m two months away from my due date and my fashion choices have gotten significantly more limited. These photos were taken a few months ago and my baby belly is much more large and in charge at the moment. Other than wearing Julian’s t-shirts and sweaters, which are a staple whether or not I’m pregnant, I have resorted to wearing a handful of items repeatedly. One of which, is the ribbed midi sweater dress. Most people are surprised when I tell them that I don’t wear many maternity clothes. Most of the clothes I’ve been wearing are my non-maternity pieces that have some stretch to them.

One Slip Dress, Two Pairs of Boots

If there is one item in my closet I have fully embraced in my thirties, it’s the slip dress. I recently styled it with combat boots and although it was slightly out of my comfort zone, I loved the look. It’s the most minimal item of clothing that can be styled in endless ways. I bought this slip dress/sweater combination from AllSaints and was immediately drawn to the neutral tones and the fact that it came with a sweater. Finally, a slip dress and sweater combination that you know will be perfect together without needing to worry about coordinating length, shape, or color. I loved this dress so much I ordered it in the dark green color too. It’s called the Tierney 2-in-1 dress and the roll neck sweater version is currently on sale (see below). I included a few store links because it is often sold out so keep an eye out.

8 Ways to Decrease Single-Use Plastic Consumption

Single-use plastic like a water bottle, restaurant utensils, a straw or a grocery bag don’t seem harmless on their own but their environmental impact is tremendous. Globally, one million plastic drinking bottles are purchased every minute and up to 5 trillion single-use plastic bags are used every year. Half of all plastic is designed to be used once and thrown away. Single-use plastic has become a major component of our everyday lives and we’re consuming at an alarming rate. From shampoo bottles to storage containers,
