A few days ago, I had the pleasure of partnering with one of my all time fave brands Kayu to host the “Spring for Kayu” event at their gorgeous store in Burlingame. I was so excited to invite all my fave local Bay and SF bloggers for a fun evening to previews Kayu’s beautiful SS17 collection called The Perfect Escape.The collection has some amazing pieces that range from totes to clutches to pouches, that can be worn and styled for several casual or dressy occasions. Check out the new collection here. I bet you will be craving that “perfect escape” once you view the adorable collection! I have many faves from this and the previous collections, browse this carousel to shop some of my faves.
If you have been following me for awhile you must know that Kayu is a brand that is very dear to me, not only cos they resonate my aesthetic and style so well, but also that they are bay are local (yay! #shoplocal) and mainly cos all their high quality ethical products are handmade by local artisans in South east Asia. Also many of their bags come with the monogramming option and this is performed by new immigrants in the San Francisco Bay Area. This initiative provides these women with practical training and an alternative source of income.
The event was so fun, there was a selfie station where we could take selfies and have them printed instantly as polaroids to take home a memory with us! There was also a super fun lipstick bar by the fab ladies at Social Beauty and Co, as well as a yummy cocktail bar arranged by Confetti Kitchen.
All the girls got to leave with these fun gift bags with tons of goodies to get them spring summer ready. All in all the event went off great!
As for my outfit, I wore this gorgeous Roe and May floral dress which is available at the Kayu flagship store along with tons of other stunning resortwear. I found this dress online in a very similar floral print which is just as pretty. I wore a flower in my hair to keep the tropical vibes in my outfit and paired the dress with comfy small wedge sandals as I was on my feet all evening. This round straw tote is one of my favorite pieces from Kayu’s new collection, it is sooo perfect for a spring weekend, vacation or even a visit to the farmer’s market. It also comes in a deep blue which will look great as a pop of color in an outfit.
