Olive + Herringbone

I am full steam ahead on spring getting here as soon as possible! This warm weather girl has had enough of cold hands. I am trying to stay patient and enjoy the remainder of winter by wearing all of my favorite winter outfits while I still can.

By far one of my favorite combos this winter has been this gorgeous olive green top from The Flourish Market combined with my black and white herringbone jacket and wedges. You don’t often find shirts in this color, but it’s one of my favorites. The cut is so flattering–you can hide an I-just-ate-an-entire-pizza-belly under there and look absolutely fabulous while doing it! And, I love that the shirt is not only ethically made in the USA, but that 5% of the sales go to Help One Now‘s family empowerment program in Ethiopia.

My herringbone TOMS wedge booties were a Poshmark find. Buying clothes and shoes secondhand on Poshmark is one my favorite things to do, since you can get high-quality, name brand clothes for much less than full price. Buying secondhand also reduces strain on the environment, since reusing clothing keeps it out of landfills, and slowing the production of new clothing reduces pollution generated by the production process. And, aren’t these booties just adorable?? They’re comfy, too.

Incidentally, my black Pilcro and the Letterpress leggings were also purchased secondhand at my local upscale consignment shop, Fifi’s (located in Cameron Village in Raleigh).

Anyone else scored some good Poshmark/consignment store finds lately? I’d love to hear!
