Today we are discussing slow fashion and offering some pointers on how to begin the slow journey for yourself, right now. Starting with the 30 wears challenge. The good news is we are on the journey with you every step of the way and so are many others. So you are definitely not alone in this process. Yay.
We know how hard it is to make a conscious effort to slow down our buying habits. We are surrounded by advertisements on a daily basis specifically designed to make us want more, even if we don’t need it. The slow fashion movement is about resisting these overly tempting traps, ending our fast fashion habits and making the most out of our clothes. Most importantly choosing our clothes for love over lust and quality over quantity. Within this article, we are featuring some of our most loved clothes, worn way more than 30 times.

Those who know me, know that I don’t go many places without a pair of a trusty Dr Martens on my little feet. This pair in particular! They look very different now from when I first bought them. Fresh out of the store they were shiny silver, almost mirror-like, but over time they have cracked and scuffed, the laces have become frayed and threadbare and the soles are wearing thin.
This is one of the only pictures I have of them in all their shiny glory
Those age lines only make me love them more. I love that they look well worn like they have been on a journey, they tell more of a story than the fresh shiny pair they once were, and they have come to represent me. So I would like to show them to you, my most loved and most worn item, probably ever.
