Those of you who follow along with my stories on Instagram know that I went to the Victoria Yoga Conference a couple weekends ago. It was a fantastic weekend full of mindfulness (more on that to come), new knowledge, and new friends. I spent some time in the market talking with different business owners and that’s where I met Leanne, Creative Director and all around #GirlBoss for Nomad by Elroy.
Nomad supports craftsmanship by searching for talented artisans to supply the fabrics used in their bohemian inspired home and fashion lines. Fabrics are sourced from Villages in Indonesia, Mexico, Vietnam, India, and Guatemala, and are then brought to Canada to be sewn by hand in Vancouver BC.
I was immediately drawn to the rack of florals and tribal patterns, and quickly fell in love this gorgeous blue and teal kimono. It’s so versatile by being able to be worn in this simple, comfy, all black outfit, or as a beach cover up. It could also dress up jeans and a tshirt, or be dressed up further with a nice top, or a cute dress.
It also pairs perfectly with this mala that was purchased from another local designer, Rachel from Shanti Collective. Rachel is another #GirlBoss that has brought together her love of creativity and yoga into a business creating spiritual jewelry. At local markets you can find her tables filled with beautiful malas, bracelets, scarves, and stones that I can’t get enough of. There’s a story behind every bead and stone, and I love learning about all of them.
