This Winter Edition is going to focus on the comfort and joy Winter can bring. With its cold air and short days, Winter is the perfect season to embrace comfort and warmth. The outfit featured below does just that with its athletic style and monochromatic color. All black attire is definitely a Winter trend that can be easy to layer without worrying about a color clash!

There are only 5 MORE DAYS OF FALL! But it already feels like Winter here in Portland, Oregon.

Going forward with The Burb Girl, a new vision is underway – one that aligns with the changes occurring in my life. After being enlightened on the harsh impacts fast fashion has on our environment,  I couldn’t help but reevaluate my role in it. As a young consumer trying to keep up with the ever changing trends, it is natural to buy into fast fashion – brands like H&M, Forever 21, Cupshe (Yes, all have been featured on my blog before, and yes, all have very cute clothes) are all fast fashion. There comes a point where the demand for new trends exceeds the capacity for ethical fashion. But you must know, despite what the media tells you, there is hope for a sustainable future in the fashion industry. You as a consumer have more power than you think.

There is hope. Here are some of the ways you can decrease your shopping footprint!

  • Consignment shopping
  • Local boutique shopping (also supports your local economy)
  • Online shopping with sustainable brands
  • Research on companies that are doing it right!

The outfit featured below was all bought locally and second-hand, not to mention it features in-style trends from this season. Comment below and flaunt some of your fashion friendly finds!
