#SustainableSunday re-purposing, round 2...

Sunday, June 26, 2016

I think I might be a little bit obsessed... blame it on several sleepless nights spent on Pinterest, but seriously, I really think I'm on to something here with wearing clothes in ways other than they were initially intended to be work (see me wear a skirt as an infinity scarf HERE).

This time, I got the brilliant idea to turn an infinity scarf into a shirt!  How did I do this, you ask.  It's simple.  I laid the scarf out flat, stuck a couple of safety pins in the top to hold the scarf together where it wold drape over my shoulders, and voila!  Instant new shirt! It was perfectly breezy and I felt like a super hippie!   

What's sustainable about this outfit? 

: the shirt is a re-purposed scarf that is made from organic bamboo and cotton and eco-friendly dyes
: the necklace is fair trade
: the bracelets and rings were handmade and locally sourced
