One Romper, One Week

THIS IS A FASHION POST! AND A ZERO WASTE POST! The two can co-exist!


Normally, my blogs go live on Friday, but I’ve got a little bonus post for you this week. Because I did one of my fave low waste tricks last week.


If you asked me even 5 years ago if I thought a “romper” would be an integral item in my closet, I probably would have laughed. I bought this green number secondhand before my trip to Dubai in 2019, and I wear it all the time. The point of “One [insert item of clothing], One Week” is to explore the versatility in a single piece of clothing. This is one of my fave “low waste” tricks, and the best way I know how to renew my interest in my closet and remind myself that I don’t need to buy more clothes.
