As I mentioned in my previous post, the back to school season is like a time of renewal for me. I always find September as much as a reset as a new year, and even more so because everything for your kids is starting up again. While January 1 seems like more of a time of reflection on the past, present and future, September is more of a time to find new systems, find a new rhythm and start anew. What worked during the last school year, may not work during this school year!
Back to basics in September for me, means getting back to my work-from-home-carpool-mom-casual-wardrobe. It’s like a back-to-school time for my wardrobe as well, as I am no longer wearing shorts all of the time but rather am trying to cultivate a more pulled-together look for myself. Over the past several years, I have tried to streamline my wardrobe to more quality pieces that I can wear more often, and can bridge the gap from casual work-at-home-girl, to being out and about during the day. I love bamboo fabric and discovered it a number of years ago; it keeps you cool or warm, regulating to your internal temperature because it is breathable and unbelievably soft also. I have a number of pieces that I have added to my closet rather slowly, because it can be pricey, but this is a uniform for my current lifestyle that works very well for me.
My friends at Bravo Apparel have a wide selection of pieces available for school uniforms, corporate apparel and team wear. Considering I dress pretty casually, when they offered me some pieces from their bamboo collection, I jumped at the chance! I got this perfect fit V-neck in superfine bamboo stretch fabric is perfect for my lifestyle. It’s pre-shrunk – yay! – and made from bamboo, rayon and organic cotton, and I got my new website logo printed on the back.
This gorgeous charcoal Bamboo hoodie, which Bravo Apparel customized for me, is made from 70% rayon from bamboo 30% Organic Cotton and Ring Spun Fleece. My absolute favourite part of the hoodie is the custom embroidery on the sleeves. Both the words BREATHE and CREATE mean something special to me, and I love the reminder whenever I look down at my sleeves. And if I am not careful, Chloe is going to snag it from me – it’s super soft and comfy.
The sales staff from Bravo Apparel based in Surrey BC will help you with all of your team branded apparel or uniform needs. Their quick turnaround time and attention to detail continues to impress me. I love that my new pieces are comfortable enough for working from home, and yet cute enough for being out and about around town. Bamboo fabric is more expensive, but if you want quality fabric, once you have tried it, you will be hooked like me!
