Active Apparel for the Nature Lover

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Who: Lolë – Montreal, Canada

What: Syrah Tunic

Where: Lolë – $70

Why We Love ‘Em: Move over Lulu, there’s a new girl in town–Lolë, a ‘gal’ who shares our passion for nature and an active lifestyle and, in 2002, created a fashion label to follow suit. So it’s about time we met starting with the Syrah Tunic.

Perfect for hopping from bike to brunch to the game or for tossing in a suitcase for a last minute trip. It’s got a flattering shape–hello ruching and cinched waist–and comes complete with a neon reflector to help keep you safe while on the road. Plus, it’s made from a sport-friendly blend of blend of organic cotton, Tencel™ and elastane that’s naturally anti-bacterial, odor inhibiting, and naturally wicking so you’ll look and feel fresh no matter where the day takes you.

Mini-Mason Pendants

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Who: LBL Lighting

What: Mini-Mason Pendants

Where: – $220-$340

Why We Love ‘Em: For those who appreciate the traditional, and love the modern these seemingly liquid glass pendants are the perfect blend of both. Taking cues from the iconic mason jar, the outer glass shade is rich in color that is only enhanced by the light-diffusing opal glass cylinder that shields the light bulb within. The combination of cool colors, soft light, and organic glass will provide a sense of calm to any room.

Handcrafted in Illinois, these pendants are available in a variety of assembly options–track ligthing, ceiling mount, etc.–to suit your space. Of course, we’d recommend the LED bulb option to maximize energy savings!
