Inspired By… Earth Day!

We got back from Atlanta not too long ago (and it was awesome!) but we’re already itching for more travel. These places look so peaceful and magical – we would love to wander around and wouldn’t even mind getting lost. These photos are a great reminder of how beautiful our Earth really is! Do your part to help our cities become more eco-friendly and sustainable!

What was the last place you visited? And where would you like to go next?

Coachella 2014

Coachella is definitely one of our favorite music festivals to attend and we had such a blast at week one! The lineup was unbelievable – we were especially stoked to see Queen Bey make her appearance during Solange’s set; Pharrell definitely kept us happy (as he always does) with guest performers Gwen Stefani, Snoop Dogg, and Busta Rhymes; Lana Del Rey who is so beautiful in person and talented; Outkast was definitely a top crowd-pleaser; and our favorite Calvin Harris were all so amazing live!

Of course we couldn’t neglect all the head-turning festival fashion. There were so many impeccably dressed Coachella-goers, from attendees to bloggers and celebrities alike. Take a look at all of these amazing outfits, perfect to keep you cool even in the hot desert weather! Which of these would you rock?

It’s A Wrap! Atlanta Apparel

Our team got back earlier this week from Atlanta Apparel Mart and it was a blast! We had good food in the city, got to see some amazingly well-dressed prom-goers at our hotel (definitely one of our favorite highlights of the trip), but best of all, we were able to connect face to face with some of our amazing buyers!

We arrived late Tuesday night and got started early Wednesday morning setting up our booth. We were immediately taken away by how HUGE and amazing AmericasMart is!

We found our way to the fourth floor and went straight to work – there was a lot to be done. There were definitely some heavy-lifting parts that were harder with just us gals, but working as a team we can do pretty much anything! Here’s a look at our sad bare booth in the works. What a mess!

But by the end of the day our booth was pretty, set, and ready to go!

The show officially kicked off on Thursday. We debuted our first-ever GAMEDAY collection and were thrilled to see the response. We received some feedback and requests for some more navy & burnt orange and garnet & gold – let us know in the comments below if there’s anything else you want to see in our next GAMEDAY pieces! 

One of our GAMEDAY pieces also made it to the Apparel Mart Daily Strut Fashion Show! Isn’t the model just gorgeous?!

To wrap up, we had an amazing time and seriously loved seeing everyone in Atlanta and we hope to catch you again at our next show! Make sure to follow our Instagram (@everlyclothing) for the most recent news and updates on what’s going on with us in the meantime.

Color Post: Pastel Mint

Easter is just around the corner and we can’t seem to get enough pastels. One of our favorites this year is mint! We love to pair our soft green pastels with even more pastels – these mint accessories would go perfectly with our  Everly dress!

Pastel Mint

1. Have you heard of bkrs? These glass & silicone sleeve water bottles have been popping up everywhere from our favorite blogs to our favorite magazines. They’re cleaner, healthier, better for the environment, and adorable! 

2. Check out this beautiful 18k mint colored gemstone ring, handmade and 100% natural all the way from Greece. We sure would like to get our hands on some of these.

3. Shop.Bando’s newest line is totally unbelievable. There’s so much color and brightness plus super cute designs – we would expect nothing less from this amazing brand. This mint beverage sleeve is perfect for those spring and summer days by the pool with a refreshing drink in your hand.

4. Loeffler Randall flats are so comfortable and versatile and we love these mint flats. The attention to detail in the perfectly rounded scallops just blows us away.

5. We are always so inspired by all of the creativity and beautiful products that come from Oh Joy! Her newest collaboration with Target hit the market a few weeks ago just makes us want to party, Oh Joy! style with these bright, gold, and polka-dotted noise makers.

6. These thank you cards are so cute and chic! And while you’re at it, make sure to check out the rest of Studio Sarah’s amazing line.

7. It’s no secret Anthropologie has some amazing home goods. This mint Curvy Chrysanthemum Vase is absolutely stunning with a pop of crimson to spice it up even more.

8. This handmade crocheted purse reminds us of the Instagram logo (or should we say … mintsagram?) and would make the cutest camera case!

#TED2014

tedIt’s no secret we’re huge fans of TED over here at Everly. We know exactly where to turn whenever we need a little extra inspiration or motivation and the 2014 TED Conference was all of that – and more. In addition to the many regular sessions, the five All-Star Sessions spotlighted some of our personal favorite speakers from the past – Dan Gilbert (psychologist and happiness expert), Barry Schwartz (Pschologist), Amanda Palmer, Stefan Stagmeister (graphic designer), Moshe Safdie, Steven Johnson, and SO many more. 

One of our favorite talks from the conference this year was given by Hugh Herr of the MIT Media Lab, covered on the TEDblog here. We were not only wowed by his resilience (after a life-threatening accident he “reasoned that a human being can never be broken”), but also by his drive and ability to show just how truly amazing and capable the human mind and body are. To top off his awe-inspiring speech, Herr then invited to the stage Adrianne Haslet-Davis, a professional ballroom dancer who lost part of her leg during the Boston Marathon bombing. Needless to say, we were absolutely floored by the performance!

Some of our other favorite quotes from various TED Conference talks:

  • People think of design like doughnuts–excessive, sweet and kind of irrelevant sometimes… Technology is not enough; design matters even more now.” – John Maeda
  • “One of the things about aging is that I can tell you with great confidence that I’ve been to the future. I’ve been there actually many times. How many times in my life have I said, ‘In 10 years this will happen … and then 10 years comes?’” – Nicholas Negroponte
  • This plight of millions of women could be changed if women and men think differently if they can break a few norms of family and society, if they can abolish the discriminatory laws of the systems in their states that go against basic human rights of the women.” - Ziauddin Yousafzai

We’re looking forward to all of the amazingness to come out of TEDGLOBAL in Brazil this year in October!
