Affordable Eco: Coats and Cover-ups

Good morning everyone! It's cold and rainy here in Jersey and I'm totally in the market for a new coat. I've been searching like crazy for a sustainable one that's cute and affordable, but it's been tough. Nothing frustrates me more than when I fall in love with one that's way out of my price range. Don't get me wrong, I love me some eco friendly high fashion    but I will never be able to afford a $400 coat. So for all you ladies who are on the same page, I picked out some really great cover-ups ranging from $29.99 to $138.00. Not bad, right?

Top left: Carve Designs Ocean Beach Jacket (made with organic cotton) - $29.99
Bottom left: Threads for Though Socorro Poncho (made with organic cotton) - $60.00
Middle: Indigenous Designs Weekender Cardigan (100% organic cotton, fair trade, low impact dyes) - $90.00
Top right: BTC Elements Earth Hoody Jacket (100% organic cotton, hand-made in USA) - $138.00
Bottom right: American Eagle Asymmetric Jacket (made with recycled wool) - $99.99

Bundle up and stay warm :)
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! I'm so thankful for each and every one of my readers    you guys are the best! Thanks so much for your support.

What I'm Loving: Zodiac Necklaces by Kris Nations

Anyone who knows me is fully aware that I'm an astrology freak. Luckily, most of my girlfriends are, too! So anything remotely related to the zodiac makes me super happy. And when it's eco-friendly? Like crazy, super happy. Needless to say, I was ecstatic to have come across these teardrop zodiac necklaces by Kris Nations.

Of course, I'm quite partial to the Cancer one... but they're all gorgeous! Handcrafted in San Francisco, these pieces are made out of recycled gold or silver, depending on which metal you choose. The best part is, they're totally affordable: $39.00 at BTC Elements! Nothing like an eco-friendly deal to make my day :)
