Embracing the Unexpected.

I wear black almost daily and I love it. I like the way black works with my skin color and hair. I like the way it wears so well in the city. Mostly, I like the way it can be worn in any fashion and with whatever accessories I feel drawn to that day. Sometimes I feel uninspired by it though. This feeling usually occurs on a spontaneous, albeit much needed, sunny day in Portland. I start to feel misplaced, like i showed up to the beach in a head to toe snow suit.  On these days I long for something clean, colorful, and easy-to-wear. I want to take advantage of what the bright skies have to offer. As Portlanders we treat unexpected sunny days as a second chance at a missed opportunity and blithely rush out into the streets to hang out with friends, take a walk around the park, or just plain sit in the sun.  So in honor of impromptu sunny days in April, I’ve included some items by sustainable designers that might help you embrace everything spring has to offer.
