state cashmere review

something about the feel of cashmere | sustainable fashion

You know when you see a puppy and you can’t help but to dig your fingers into their soft plush fur for a scratch? Pull the sleeves down over your hands, it feels good to sink into a cocoon of luxury. Even in the summer months, there’s something about cashmere that is unlike any other material. What a privilege to experience summer with cool air vents creating a refuge indoors, where we can still afford ourselves the luxury of snuggling down in soft, plushy warmth. photography:ME | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | sustainable cashmere sweater c/o:STATE CASHMERE (use code: KRISTINA20 for 20% off) The natural fibers fold together pulled tight by the intricate knitting.

Our world is chaotic. Returning from a long weekend in Nashville, TN – I was surrounded by miles of traffic, crowded sidewalks, and music city bars packed shoulder to shoulder. The sound of soul searching in the artists’ voices were nearly drowned by a mix of chattering and classes clanging. After the show, people spilled into the littered streets – not to return home, but to the next audio highlight or corner pub.

But the truth is, the social stimulation and electric setting is more than enough to consume everyone’s focus. The rest is just stuff. Stop and smell the roses. We don’t need more, we need less.

three ways to wear heels – stepping up summer fashion trends

When the world goes one way, fashion inevitably starts to go the other. In case you missed the memo, dress is back. With athleisure now fully saturated into both European and American markets, the consumer has started to get bored, and they’re reaching back to their archives for a compromise away from athleisure style. Don’t worry, it’s not going anywhere soon. But while athleisure strays away from fashion and moves toward traditional sport brands like Nike, Puma and Adidas – 2019 summer fashion trends are leaning towards the ultimate return of the feminine evolution – heels. photography:MY MOM | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | shoes c/o:JO MERCER | classic blue levi jeans c/o:SHOPBOP | black jeans c/o: PARKER SMITH | leather biker jacket c/o:ALL SAINTS   Don’t worry ladies, we know you got used to the comfort of sneaker styles and flat-bed sandals.
