One thing getting me extra jazzed these days? Wearing brands that not only look good, but brands I feel good about wearing. Insert: Sustainable Clothing. Here’s the deal, friends. Knowledge is power and there’s no time like the present to dig a little deeper when it comes to what you’re wearing, how those pieces are made, what exactly they’re made of, and where in the world they come from. All areas I’ll be the first to admit I have room for growth in! But thanks to Nordstrom, I’ve never felt more confident about shopping sustainably. You may even be surprised to learn some of the brands you already know and love fit the bill.
I’ll pump the brakes before we go green. What exactly is sustainable clothing, you ask? Sustainable style is made with– you guessed it– sustainably sourced materials [like organic cotton and recycled polyester]. It’s responsibly manufactured at factories that protect their employees [and Mother Earth] by offering empowerment programs to workers, ensuring fair wages, and managing chemical and resource use. And it gets better. Nordstrom’s Sustainable Styles give back, meaning when you purchase one of these items, a portion of the proceeds benefits a charitable organization. The list goes on, but you can rest assured knowing sustainable styles are packaged responsibly and made with sustainably sourced ingredients. In simple terms [for those of us beginners], it’s made, manufactured, and packaged with all the good stuff and less of the bad. All reasons why we’re giving Nordstrom’s Sustainable Styles two green thumbs up. You can take a closer look here by clicking “Learn More”. As always, Nordstrom offers free shipping and returns, the BEST customer service, options to buy online and pick up in-store or curbside [if you’re lucky enough to live nearby], AND access to the Nordy Club— the rewards program that earns you points while you shop. My favorite reward? Nordy Notes to use for future [sustainable] shopping trips!
Now that you know the why behind today’s looks, let’s get to the good stuff. Introducing easy, everyday [husband approved] sustainable style. You may already recognize a few brands that are near and dear to my heart like Patagonia and Liverpool. The LIY Team recently had the opportunity to take Liverpool’s Sustainable + Eco-Friendly Collection for a spin and let me be the first to assure you, it feels as good [if not better!] than it sounds. I’m talking stretch denim– that offers serious stretch– made from sustainable cotton. What more can a girl ask for?
Whether you’re spending the majority of your time at home or out and about running errands these days, Nordstrom’s Sustainable Styles have got you– and your man– covered. For days that “getting out” means a walk to the end of the driveway and back [seriously, it’s the little things], a jacket for you and pullover for him will keep you both snug as bugs while looking good AND feeling good about what you’ve got on. While I still have a lot to learn, I’m excited to dive deeper into consciously manufactured products and so proud to share a few favorites from brands close to my heart. Cheers to responsible fashion, friends!

When not in front of her computer screen [with a La Croix or wine in hand] or in front of a mirror taking mirror selfies, you can find Erin spending time on the water, cuddled up with her two pups and husband most likely watching the latest Shark Tank episode, or getting lost in an easy beach read.
