Ethical Outfit Inspiration: Spring Edition

Howdy folks, Sarah here again! :)

Hands up if you're looking forward to spring? *waves hands wildly in the air* I know I'm probably not the only person who's ready to see the back of all this miserable weather we've been having - it's starting to get silly now, I'm half expecting to see an ark appear overnight...

With that in mind I've put together a couple of ethical spring fashion inspiration boards - as I stare out of the window at the relentless downpour - to try and bring a bit of sunshine back into our lives!

All of these items are ethically sourced, proving that you can be fashionable while still being kind to the environment :) Phew! First up, we've got the spring in the sun board...

How beautiful is that wooden watch, by the way? I'm totally in love. Spring to me means layers, comfortable (closed toe!) shoes and a bit of warmth that you can take off when the sun unexpectedly shows it face (plus a sturdy bag to carry everything in). I'm digging these floral trousers - enough to keep you warm without feeling too hot and sweaty (no jeans here, thank you).

But because I know the weather is very rarely perfect in the UK (and definitely hardly ever perfect in Wales!) I've also put together a spring in the rain board! :) Much as I'd like to believe it, I really don't think we've seen the last of the wet weather just yet...

Secretly this is my favourite of the two (you all know how I feel about yellow so that shouldn't be a surprise) - I mean, how adorable are those socks, right? 

If you're looking at this and thinking "a dress? In the rain?!" hear me out: what's worse to be wet and cold in - a pair of jeans that instantly adhere themselves to your legs or a pair of tights that you can whip off and replace quickly? (Just keep a spare pair in your bag and you're on you're way to instant cosiness should you get drenched).

Layers are great for the rain, too - so pull on your cardigan over the top and a nice waterproof raincoat to seal the deal. Now all you need is wellies and you can splash about in all the puddles with no fear of getting your sock wet - yay! :)

If you need more inspiration you can always check out the Hubbards Cupboard ethical fashion board on Pinterest! :)
