OOTD: Plum Party Pants.

Posted by Anna

Printed pants have a long history. Look no further than your parents’ scrapbooks from the 70′s and you’re sure to find several snaps of your dad rocking plaid slacks or maybe even your fashion-forward mom in a pair of pastel printed culottes (shudder). Fast forward to 2014 and printed pants still have their same charm and playful spirit, just with a flattering cut and on-trend color. Fashion really is cyclical!

These babes have been in process at b&i HQ for months and it feels darn good to be able to reveal them to you. Betsy’s way of drawing inspiration from the architecture, angles, and curves of bridges and turning it into something beautiful and wearable never ceases to amaze me.

Hope to start seeing these on wrists around town & on social media soon!

Cheers,

Anna

I love a good t-shirt! And fortunately, it looks like they will continue to be on trend for like……always.

We recently started carrying t-shirts by good hYOUman . They’re pretty much the softest t-shirts I have ever felt, they’re produced in LA, and extremely comfortable made from 100% light weight cotton.

I styled a t-shirt on four awesome b&i ladies four ways and I have one word to describe it: amazing.
