Eco chic(k)

A Rainy gloomy fall day, a bit of chill in the air, and I've spent most of the day writing. All of these things make for a happy disposition. The weather however is making it difficult to get a good picture with the camera on my phone and unfortunately I lack the funds to buy a better camera at the moment. So I thought I would talk about a little online boutique I've found that I absolutely love. A lot, or pretty much all, of the items are out of my price range but this is for a good reason. The boutique is mostly organic and green practice clothing, fair trade and all that jazz. . One of my goals in life is to own a mostly organic/eco friendly/vintage closet. The webite also has some really interesting info on organic cotton in their "info" section. Here is a glimpse of what you could learn from visiting the site "It takes roughly one-third of a pound of chemicals (pesticides and fertilizers) to grow enough cotton for just one T-shirt. (SCP)"
This dress is out of control expensive, on sale for $390 the Bamboo Voil it's made out of must be really hard to work with or really rare. Either way if I had the money I'd buy this dress from Mr. Larkin, based out of  San Fransico, for sure. I love the hem and the girly shape of the garment.

this sweatshirt "cloak" is from Prairie Underground and its 100% organic cotton. It's amazing! I love that its a sweatshirt that could totally pass for a jacket to wear over a dress etc.

I love the unique shape of this vest/poncho. They call it a "batwing vest" which is fitting I guess. It's made from Baby alpaca and wool blend from Julie Park for Park Vogel line which is based out of Australia.

the temperature is dropping

So I've been told over and over again by a friend that I must keep writing my blog. It has been quite neglected lately which I have to say I'm not too ashamed of because I've been busy writing my novel. 30 thousand words and counting but it still feels like such a tiny part of my life. It has been so beautiful out lately I have to say that this time of year and this weather is my most favorite part of New England. I can't imagine being anywhere else in September/October. I have big plans for apple picking, apple crisp, apple cider doughnuts, apple pie, hot apple cider, pumpkin carving, raking and jumping in piles of leaves and foliage foliage foliage! That being said I am getting really antsy and can't wait to flee at the end of October. To where, you ask? Location; Unknown. Fall fashion is also a thing of beauty. Layering, and sweaters, and scarfs, OH MY!  So there it is, a little something about my life, and a little photo sesh. It's all I have for now, I'll try to write soon.
The scarf is j. crew outlet.
the sweater is from a boutique on the vineyard.
and the jeans and wedges are both gap.
