Cool Blue Summer Style

I call this my Urban Craft Uprising outfit because my earrings, skirt, and bag are from my recent adventures at the UCU show. This is a great travel outfit (rollable, packable, wrinkle-free) and it’s so comfortable.

The one-size skirt is by Portland designer Erin MacLeod. I have a couple of other skirts by her. They have a row of snaps as a waistband and are fully adjustable.

The bag is my latest Crystalyn Kae, a design collection made right here in Seattle. It holds my laptop but will be a great carry-on piece when I fly. My friends with children thought it would make a stylish diaper bag too.

The earrings are from Designated Dryden, another Portland-area designer. Dryden makes affordable, fun jewelry. I plan to visit her Etsy site soon.

I really enjoy supporting local designers and merchants. I love how these pieces are high-quality, handmade, and one-of-a-kind. Do you have locally made items? What are your favorite local shops?
