Things We Loved At Fashion Week: White, Gingham and Floral

When spring has sprung we expect to see bright whites, pretty floral prints and lots of color but it looks like Spring 2015 will throw another standard into the mix with gingham. Seen on the runways of Oscar de la Renta, Michael Kors,  Altuzarra, DVF and more, this picnic print will make a splash when the weather warms up again.

What do you think of the gingham trend for Spring 2015? Share your thoughts and styling ideas in the comments, on Twitter and Instagram   @WeRoamFree or on our Facebook page at http://www.Facebook.com/RoamFreeCollective

Things We Loved At Fashion Week: Carolina Herrera

Is there any designer that better designs a sophisticated red carpet look that feels wearable to almost all of us? The one that usually comes to mind for me is Carolina Herrera. With style, grace and an eye for beautiful colors, Carolina Herrera brought one of her most lovely ready to wear lines to the runways this week.

Travel Tuesday || 9.9.14

We’ve returned from our Pine Tree State adventures and the trip was a beautiful way to end an amazing summer. From the beaches to the world class restaurants and unique shopping opportunities I just don’t think there is much that compares to a summer in Maine. Now we’re ready to get set for fall but first, here are some pics to inspire your very own trip to Maine.

Music Monday || 8. 4. 14

As you may have heard, Roam Free Collective is on a road trip to Maine so in celebration of our end-of-summer adventure we thought we would feature two bands we’ll be seeing while in the 207. Both have stomping, clapping, folk-y, bluegrass, American sounds that signal a party from the first strum of the banjo and if you’re not up and singing along you’re probably not doing it right!

First up, “holler roots” outfit The Ghost of Paul Revere.

Next, the experience known as  Spirit Family Reunion.

Finally, you should know that these two awesome bands play a FREE show together Thursday, August 7th in Portland, ME. If you’re in the Pine Tree State don’t miss it! And hey, if you’re at the show (or any show really!) share some Instagram and Twitter pics with us by using #WeRoamFree.

Music Monday || 7.28.14

I’m taking Roam Free Collective in a more polished and organized direction starting with the writing of our standards and style guide but while I toil away at that little project you can check out the first edition of our new weekly series ‘Music Monday’. Each week we’ll put a new song, video or album on blast but this week you’ll get a little something extra with not one, but three music discoveries! Listen on and tell us what you think.
