I am no fan of the cold, which is one of the reasons why I moved to Texas many years ago. However, there is one thing I do enjoy about the winter months…. chunky sweaters. Chunky sweaters are like a cozy blanket. Chunky soft sweaters that feel like a warm embrace from a beautiful fuzzy creature. Thankfully, there are a lot of ethical options when sweater shopping this winter. My Christmas present from my husband was this cotton-wool blend sweater from Pact Apparel. (Grab it on sale in grey.)
I think the rust color suits my warm hair. This blended sweater is fantastic at keeping me warm (but not itchy) and works well alone on those days when it is a more mild temperature.
I also have my ojos on this gorgeous sweater through ThredUp with buttons on the back.
Here are just a few more sweaters to officially make you a sweater loving convert.
- Tradlands Fisher Sweater in Quail
- Sezane Alfred Jumper
- Toad & Co Bianca Sweater

I love fall and I am always awed by the richness of the changing colors. I also really enjoy the crisp morning of fall and the warm sunny afternoons. The fall season is the perfect weather for a light pair of pants that can transition easily from cool to balmy temperatures. Prana pants are the perfect bottoms for enjoying nature all day despite shifts in heat. My Prana joggers are breathable and easy to push up when the weather grows warmer; I also really love that the hue matches the beautiful pale leaves.
The best part you ask, Prana is committed to making clothing that has a more positive impact on lovely Mother Nature. Prana has adopted sustainable initiatives such as avoiding toxic chemicals, using organic cotton, and creating new apparel out of recycled material. The brand also has a collection of men’s and women’s clothing that is fair trade certified. Prana is best known for their sportswear/outdoor wear but they have numerous items that could also be worn in a business casual setting.
My “kickin it joggers” are on sale through REI buy sadly my graphic tee showing my love of trees is now only available for men. However, I really love this tee and here is another great pair of fair trade certified joggers if you prefer a thicker material. Need something to keep you nice and toasty? Check out this cozy sweater!
Fun Fact: As a teenager, I would tell people the color of my hair was “autumn” because of the golden tones and the fact that it would appear darker as the days grew shorter. (Thankfully I didn’t shed my hair with the leaves.)
