Mused: Spring Awakening
Spring came quickly this year. Not early, but it seemed to come suddenly. My eyes are itchy, which means things are in bloom. I feel ready to be out in the world again - to learn and to explore. Here are some of my favorite items for this season with a playlist to go along.
Girlfriend Collective makes their leggings and activewear out of recycled water bottles. The coolest part (other than saving the planet) is that their products are so soft and durable. You can read more about their process and mission here, and browse through their goods here.
This pillow is by Brooklyn based company, Afternoonswim. All products are ethically hand-crafted with natural fiber materials by the founder, Hanna. Her pillows are beautiful, and she is set to launch rugs and artwork in the near future - I can't wait to see! You can purchase the pillow shown above and browse other items on the site.
I am so in love with this bracelet by Alexa de la Cruz, as well as all of the pieces in her collection. The jewelry is handcrafted in Mexico City by local artisans. I have also had the pleasure of getting to know her through Instagram, and she is such a warm, kind, and lovely soul. Shop her stunning, unique pieces here. You will also love her personal Instagram, showcasing her impeccable taste, beautiful home, and journey with motherhood.
As you may already know, I love St. Agni, a Byron Bay based ethical and sustainable company. I own these sandals, and I started wearing them as soon as temperatures rose in Los Angeles. When not barefoot (I often am), I've been living in these - they are incredibly comfortable. I love pairing them with both pants and dresses. I also suggest browsing though their beautiful clothing.
The Bodysuit of Barcelona makes the most beautiful, simple bodysuits. I have yet to own one, but I gush over their products every time they post on Instagram. I love their photography and the way they capture the women wearing their clothing - they embrace the female form effortlessly. You can browse their products here.
I have been wearing my 1930's bandana by Ozma of California nearly every day, so it felt necessary to include in this month's mused post. They are 100% silk and hand-dyed and printed locally in Los Angeles. All of Ozma of California's items are ethically made in Los Angeles - check out their beautiful clothing here.
I recently posted about F. Miller Skincare, and I still can't get enough of these luscious products. Here is a note from their website: "F. MILLER is entirely free of synthetic fragrances and colourings, harmful preservatives, sulphates, parabens, pthalates, PEG's and SLS's. All products are formulated from the finest raw, nutrient-rich ingredients which are consciously sourced and cruelty-free." This body oil feels especially appropriate for spring, with sweet almond oil, neroli, bergamot, and grapefruit - it's as refreshing as it is soothing. I'm currently in the desert and slathering this on after every shower to keep my skin moisturized and happy.
