It’s finally getting a little warmer here in California, but the cool air and drizzles are still hanging around for a bit! That’s all fine with me, since the green hills are always so fleeting (and already starting to turn brown again) and who knows what this summer will bring. In an attempt to get out of the house more and enjoy the outdoors a bit more, my hubby and I acquired a few kites and went out to Morro Bay for a little sunshine last weekend!
One of my favorite brands, Nomads Hemp Wear, sent me a gorgeous pair of leggings from their Spring/Summer 2019 collection so I took them out for a spin and some photos! These are the Satoshi Leggings in Slate Blue, and they are so awesome, and different from anything in my closet (and I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I have a TON of leggings, many from the brand). The color is such a pretty bluish grey. I own so many black things so it was nice to shake it up a little! I also took them out with my new Crisiswear Battalion Gaiter. I’ve been eyeing this brand for too long and took the plunge, and this piece is such a perfect little accessory or layer to switch up an outfit in a pinch! It also keeps my neck warmer and protected from the wind (which there was plenty of since we were flying kites). I’ve had my MahaDevi Design Dragonfly Tank for awhile and wear it anywhere often, but the MahaDevi Design Dyna Dropped Jacket is brand new and this is my first time pairing it with other items. Also such a rad item! The sweatshirt, my Maddie Moon Crop Cowl, has been with me through many festivals and the cropped design is great because it helps in those in-between temps where I’m kind of chilly but not quite too cold yet. I love the zipper in the back and the shoulders lace up! My trusty Utility Belt from Naytures Empire has been a staple at festivals and some special events for several years now and it’s often by my side. Being a festival goer, and a DJ, I’m a huge fan of these independent artists (for any new readers tuning in here), especially due to the fact that most are sustainable and made much better (and with love) than many mass-produced brands! Slow fashion is where it’s at. I’m also partial to pieces that get a lot more wear by being stylish for both festivals and the street (according to my tastes, at least)! My closet is rapidly being replaced by items from brands that create such designs.
