New Investment Pants - Shopping More Ethically

I decided I needed a new pair of pants for my clinical placement as all of my budget pants had stretched (in a bad way). For a while now Ellen and I have been trying to be more thoughtful about what we buy and where possible purchase from ethical/sustainable brands. When I found out about Gorman's policies around this I decided to check out their store for my next investment purchase, a new well-fitting pair of pants. 

There were many styles in store but I fell in love with this pair (which are on sale at the moment which is double win). They have a beautiful navy based jaquard print and huge pockets so I don't always need to carry a bag with me. I had to order my size online because they didn't have it in store, and I impatiently checked the tracking number everyday until they arrived on my doorstep. I've already worn them twice this week, and I'll continue to outfit repeat with no shame because this is love baby.

  1. This is such a lovely outfit! Absolutely love the patterned pants with the grey. I have been looking around for some pants that are like this, a little more dressy but haven't been able to find anything within my sad little student budget. I think after reading your post I might have to just invest though! x

  2. Wow this look is amazing, I love it! x

  3. These pants are really very beautiful, and I also loved the top and the necklace! A beautiful look and you look beautiful as well!

  4. Hey Tara! I was wondering if you could tell me what brands/shops you've found that you're happy to buy from? I'm trying to find shops where I can get ethically made clothing, it's a struggle in NZ!
