Spring is here.  The grass is greener, the sun is bright, and winter coats are a thing of the past.  However, the beauty of Spring won't last forever, which is why its a must to be conscious of making green-decisions.  For instance, bring reusable bags to the grocery store rather than bringing more plastic bags home.  This planet needs our help, and every little change counts.  And we love when fashion retailers take action.

Fast-fashion giant, H&M, will release their Conscious Collection this Thursday, April 14, which features pieces made of recycled polyester and organic cotton.  All pieces of this collection are white or off-white which is right on trend for Spring.  We all love looking good without breaking the bank, and now we get to look good on a budget AND be green.  Winning!

Here are my top 3 picks from this collection:  
Spaghetti-strap organic cotton top with ruffle details, a lovely alternative to your average tank-top. 
3/4 sleeve recycled polyester dress with lace-like sleeves with a flowy feel, which makes for a refreshing break from your brights.
Organic cotton short-sleeve crop top with laser cut outs and a scallop bottom, a much needed upgrade to a plain white tee.

What do you think of the collection?  Let me know.

Honestly, these flowy tops do not go with me. They make me look wider. I feel the same about flow tops as I do with horizontal stripes: I know they're in, but I avoid them. (Accept for the scarf.) So there you go. I will get white in a scarf.

We understand flowy tops aren't for everyone, but before you write them off completely, you might want to try them with skinny jeans and flats, the contrast of the top with the shape of the jeans has a nice balance. If you try this, let us know!
