made in the USA at modcloth

I've aways been a fan of ModCloth's cute clothes and affordable price points, and did a little experiment last week to see what kinds of ethical options they offer. Turns out, a ton! I was happily surprised to see 20+ pages of items when I searched "Made in the USA" on their site, including lots of their adorable basics, like this top that comes in lots of colors! I rounded up my top sixteen picks for you, below.

It's so encouraging to see major stores like ModCloth, Nordstrom and even A Pea in the Pod offering more and more options made responsibly, right here in our own US of A. Gives me all the good feels.

I ordered this top and can't wait for it to arrive, and I'm eying this dress for the winter. I think it would be great for a baby bump over leggings or tights, and could be easily dressed up or down, don't you think? Happy shopping!

12 ethical dresses for fall + winter

Happy Wednesday, friends!! I don't know about you, but I'm in the thick of figuring out my fall + winter outfits over here. Temperatures have been unseasonably warm in my part of the world, but I know they're going to get cool really soon and I'm excited about the transition to layers. Fall and winter is truly my favorite type of dressing!

Now that I'm no longer nursing, dresses have been my jam. It's so hard to find nursing-friendly dresses, so I'm living it up in them until I do it all over again next summer :) Plus, dresses over leggings is a super easy way to look put together in the winter, especially when you're pregnant and already busting out of all your regular clothes (um, hand raised emoji over here. That showing-early-the-second-time-around thing is no joke!) Just throw leggings or tights on underneath and layer a cardigan over top and those short-sleeve and short length dresses are ready for the frigid temps!

I rounded up twelve ethical dress options for fall + winter and linked them all below. They are all SO cute, I'm having a hard time deciding which I want to add to my closet, but I'm leaning towards the floral maxi. Which would you choose?
