GET FESTIVE WITH IT

Festival season is upon us. Whether you’re heading down to the Bahamas for Fyre Festival, or to Palm Springs for Coachella, there’s one thing all festival go-ers have in common- you all want to look your best! Of course, you’re there for the great music and the good company of friends but let’s be real, festival fashion trends are an actual thing.  So, WHAT ARE YOU PLANNING TO WEAR? Festivals are a great opportunity to go beyond your ordinary style. Express yourself!

Here are some of our festival favorites!

The Kodiak Mila Maxi exudes fun with its vibrant colors. It even has pockets and who doesn’t like a dress with pockets!?  Stand out in the crowd wearing this maxi dress!

Louisa Lace Caftan is super versatile. You can listen to your favorite band and then head to the beach or the pool, without changing your outfit! This sheer caftan keeps you cool under the scorching sun and if you do get too hot from dancing your tush off, just take it off and rock your bikini!

Keep it simple, light, and colorful in the Yena Top! With its cute cropped body and festive mini tassel hem you’ll be festival ready with a pair of vintage cut-offs!

Look like a true Lovestitch Goddess in the Juliana Caftan. Caftans are perfect for festivals because they transition from day to night and festival to poolside!

Simple, effortless and subtlety sexy, the Rafaela Tank is a festival WINNER! Guaranteed to keep you cool while dancing under the Bahamian or desert sun! Perfect with cut-offs!

Let’s SPRING into this season!

Let’s spring into the season with a fresh start!

Before the season is in full blast, make like a Spring breeze and freshen up your wardrobe! It is time to do some serious Spring cleaning in that closet of yours! You probably have clothes you don’t wear, will wear one day, will never wear or maybe you even have a donate pile you never took to the donation drop-off. Go through all your clothes and make separate piles of what you will donate, give to friends or family members and what you absolutely want to keep. This is a great way to stay current with the season and trends and stay on top of routine upkeep of your wardrobe.

Spring is the first season of the year; it is a time of renewal. The flowers are blooming and the weather is getting warmer. As for fashion, colors are more vibrant and it’s time to have more fun with your style! Who doesn’t love Spring?

Here at Lovestitch, we want to show you some of our favorite pieces of the season so that you can spring into the season with style!

Because sometimes we just want to stash our keys and some cash (or whatever) and head to the beach, the music festival, or to that kid-from-your-kid's-school's birthday party...without having to lug around a backpack, a fanny-pack, or any other kind of pack!

30 Minutes a Day, For BAE

Image from Oh Restless Bird Blog

Life. Is. Hectic. I find myself consistently putting off "me time" in the hopes of making another dent in my never-ending to-do list. The relief I get from each check mark propels the fantasy that, one day, I might be able to truly get on top of things... 

But the reality is, our life's to-do list is infinite. And by forgoing self-care in exchange for check marks (aka immediate gratification), you negate the most important relationship in your life: the one with yourself. That being said, the last thing you want is to feel stressed about having to think of ways to squeeze some "me time" into your schedule... which is where a "Self-Care Jar" comes into play.

I heard about this simple DIY idea from a friend. It makes committing to 30 minutes of self-care a day painless. Simply find an old jar laying around your home, jot down different "me time" ideas on strips of paper, and pop them in! The key is to write down things that you'd not only enjoy but also will actually do

Here are some ideas from my personal jar:

  • Light a candle, sit on the floor, and meditate. 
  • Walk to the grocery store and buy yourself a bouquet of flowers. 
  • Practice yoga (I personally love doyogawithme.com. They have quick, effective, and free yoga tutorials). 
  • Take a bath (and if you're feeling extra fancy, throw in some flower petals and bath salts). 
  • Read a book.
  • Go for a walk.
  • Paint, draw, or fill in a coloring book.

Taking time to attend to your own care is not a declaration of selfishness, but rather a way of asserting "me too." I've found that having a jar full of "me time" ideas is an effortless way to make self-care a daily practice - having those bad boys at the ready makes taking care of bae just that much easier.

Why We Love The Color Grey

Lovestitch Celestial Sweater via Rachel Chen's instagram @vintagedolls

 

G-R-E-Y; A classic color that is wrongfully connoted with such words as dull, old, and emotionless. 

If we could rewrite the dictionary, that's what we'd say about the color grey. Because, let's keep it real: what other color can stretch the boundaries of monochromatic pairing? With it's endless array of shades, grey is the one color that is perfect for every time of the year. And considering Southern California's lack of "real seasons", year-round pieces hold a special place in our hearts. 

So in honor of such a versatile color, we've highlighted eight of our favorite grey Lovestitch garments. Cheers, to you grey!
