The Curated Closet Series | Days 3&4 | Lounging in Patterns

This is my typical outfit that I throw on when I get home from work. My job often requires me to wear a fire-retardant uniform, and when I get home from work all I want to do is put on some comfy clothes that make me feel great. My after-work lounge outfits usually consist of a sports bra, t-shirt, a selection from my fave sweatshirt stash, and either these running shorts or one of my few pairs of leggings.

I think my ethical fashion understanding began earlier this year while I was browsing Instagram and YouTube for new people to follow. I honestly can’t even remember what started it all, but since discovering this new world of fashion, beauty, and lifestyle, I haven’t been able to stop going deeper and deeper into it.
