i’m wearing two different bay area brands in my outfit today, both with a serious dose of comfort built-in, and a peppering of nostalgia for my days in the bay. the amalfi top was designed in oakland by hygge design and the pleated paper-bag waist shorts are by muumuu, both ethically manufactured in san francisco and made from beautiful natural fibers. and not only do they go together quite nicely, but they’re both focused on creating comfortable, wearable clothes. the sorts of elevated basics that can be worn from season-to-season and never go out of style. in fact, if i was in the bay area right now, i think this outfit look would look perfect with a little cardigan on top.
so in summary, i think i need to plan a trip to the bay area! i miss my old neighborhood in oakland and i would love to catch up on all that is going on up there. so many great brands seem to be popping-up. and let’s not forget, they’ve got cooler weather, mission burritos, and thrift town. damn.
