returning to life as a fashion blogger, and introducing hemsmith

life as a fashion blogger

Just returned from a journey through India, and resuming once again the lifestyle of a fashion blogger. It’s been a long break, and catching up the the pace of normal life has been a more tremendous undertaking than expected. I can still taste the mouthwatering curries and ample coconut water that was consumed along the way. And the silence feels strange as if I’ve never heard it before.

At any rate, getting back to the routine has felt more like  a fresh start, and I’ve spent the past couple of days sorting through trip photos and catching up on the latest on Instagram. But before diving into vacation adventures, I wanted to share with you a discovery I made earlier in the year and have recently had the pleasure of experiencing first hand.

Introducing Hemsmith, a modern, unisex clothing line of comfortable basics that compliment a minimal wardrobe. I discovered the brand first in November of last year, when I came contact with Hemsmith as a fashion blogger. We chatted through a few emails back and forth, sharing some common interests in fashion and design. The line was just at it’s beginnings then, and blossoming as we continued staying in touch.

This year, big changes are on the wind and the Hemsmith site is now live! Feeling good about the amount of effort put into each piece, I couldn’t resist but to give them a try and share it with you.

Currently featuring two of her pieces: the unisex Vince cutoff and the Ava crop. Both super soft and stretchy with an asymmetrical design from the SS16 collection. Feeling internally conflicted whether it’s the material choice or unique design that I like most – either way both tops are total wins for the warm season.

Shooting just days before my trip, I paired both with denim as my go-to solution for comfort and efficiency for tackling my to-do list – however I’m pretty sure culottes would be an excellent choice as well. Complimenting timepiece for the ensemble is by Wolsch. The simple face and ink-toned pebbled leather band added a rich texture that made me feel pulled together through the hustle. Part of the fun in being a fashion blogger is being able to toy-with and remix outfits on the daily – so you’ll be seeing these styles again.

In the mean time, be sure to check out the Hemsmith site and support an awesome startup designer. India trip updates coming soon so be sure to keep in touch!

  2. Welcome back! Looking forward to seeing your travel images from India… That’s so cool about you collaborating with a fellow blogger. Social media has definitely brought more positivity despise of what the naysayers might say. I’m digging the tank with the slash detail on the hem. The fabric looks like it has a really soft and cozy hand.
