calivintage + blluemade

i’m sure by now you know all about my dedication to linen. over the past several years, it has become a prominent textile in my wardrobe for a number of reasons. for starters, it’s a much more sustainable material than cotton because it requires far less pesticides to be grown. it also gets softer with each wash, and is incredible comfortable and breathable. it’s typically considered a summer material, but it comes in all different weights, making it a practical choice for all seasons, especially if you live in california.

which brings me to blluemade. just launched earlier in 2016, the brand sources high-quality linen from belgium, and designs and manufactures all of their garments here in the united states. the husband and wife team behind the brand both come from backgrounds in art history and philosophy, and they’ve joined forces to create such an elegant and timeless collection. they are both huge fans of indigo, and are inspired by vintage workwear, which are two things i absolutely love. so of course you know i’m a huge fan. i’m wearing their modern smock shirt and wrap skirt, which look great together, but are also really fun to mix and match with your existing wardrobe.

the best part is that everything on the site is currently 30% off with code ‘FEB30’ from now until the end of february! after that, these pieces won’t be back, so hop to it while the deal is still on!
