I cannot believe that it has been a year since a small passion project of mine has grown into a much bigger idea. While sitting at NBA summer league last July, I began to see an area of women’s design in athletic wear that had yet to be part of the market. Thus began some fun new creative ideas that are now turning into lots of cool things. For the past few years, I had only been styling, and had really let some of my creative love for design go, and with some big changes last year, I was able to tap back into them.
If you know much about Portland, this time of year is gorgeous, and most of my meetings are in the athletic and street wear side of things, so there is no need to be dressy. I fell in love with this cool denim jacket from The Rails, because star designs are one of my favorites. Not only that, it feels lucky and will be perfect all summer long. Also, I have never met a fun statement tee or a camo print that I do not like, so I grabbed this cute Boyfriends Current Elliott tee the moment I saw it. It adds a fun edge to the look.
AG denim have long been one of my favorites. I can wear them on the plane, as they are super comfy, and this pair is the perfect shade of grey. I love that I can wear jeans to the meeting, and the high-waist and selvage bottoms are totally on trend.
Because I am only here for a couple of days, I tend to pack light. The look is great for meetings with the denim jacket on, and perfect to stroll the streets when t he sun is out wrapping the jacket around my waist. I am long a fan of denim on denim, and again, the tee is cute and fun for a day of shopping and sight seeing.
Of course I am traveling with a few sneakers, but one of my favorite combos is green and pink. These fun adidas sneakers are not only super comfy for travel, I can wear them to meetings, and run in them. They go perfectly with this look to pitch ideas in!
Cheers to lots of fun things to come! I cannot wait to be able to tell you all more!!!
