The {Ethical} Pants That Changed Me- Golden Rule Boutique

This post is sponsored by The Golden Rule Boutique! All opinions are my own. I'm so thankful for the businesses that partner with Life+Style+Justice to make this platform a possibility! 

My style has always been pretty traditional. I've sort of gravitated away from flowy, bohemian styles because I rarely find an item in that category that works well for me and that I really feel comfortable in. I love the free-spirited, adventurous look, but I just couldn't pull it off. 

 Then I met these pants - the Taru Black Yoga Stretch Pants from The Golden Rule Boutique. So soft. So stretchy. And I really like the way they fit and feel! They're roomy without making me feel like I'm drowning in fabric, and the fitted ankles and waist/hip area keep my petite frame from looking shapeless. 

The pants are made ethically in Thailand, and a portion of sales go toward rescuing elephants (these would make a great gift for your favorite animal-loving, vegan, yogi friend)! The seamstresses who sew these "elephant pants" are paid double the standard wage and provided with health care. 

At $28.00, these pants are super affordable, as well. You'll actually find plenty of pieces for around $30.00 through The Golden Rule Boutique- a rarity in ethical stores. A few favorites that stood out to me as I was browsing the shop are this beautiful striped maxi dress for $24.75, and these zero waste leggings from one of my favorite ethical brands, Tonle, for $22.50!

I'm planning on mostly wearing my new boho pants for yoga (I've been wanting a pair of loose yoga pants for awhile, I've only ever had tight-fitting leggings), but I also think they work well dressed up to wear out. I mean, who doesn't want to look put-together but feel like they're wearing the most comfortable pajamas ever?
