We’ve been patiently waiting for long summer days, easy summer dresses, and weekend trips to the cabin. In the meantime, we’re doing our best to absorb spring, whether it feels like it or not! Featured pieces: Mary Tunic, Bess Button-Up Top, Carina Top, Swing Tie Skirt, Split Hem Tank Dress, and one of our favorite coffee table books, In the Company of Women.
Janelle Wylie is the creator of and color mastermind behind our most recent Makers Alongside piece, the Scout Scarf. Influenced by her mother who is also an artist, Janelle was exposed to art and color at a young age. After years of studying color and design, her passion towards fiber arts became a reality in 2016 with her online company, tono + co., that sells a myriad of hand-dyed fabrics, ranging from ribbon to table runners.
Janelle pulls most of her inspiration from her own surroundings, with details in architecture and nature often catching her eye. “I like to feel my inspiration from my surroundings, which makes it important to travel outside my comfort zone to keep it fresh”.
One of Janelle’s all-time favorite HDH pieces is our Limited Edition Winslow Dress, as she wears it as both an apron and a dress! If she’s going out, she likes to wear our Lia Dress, which she feels gives her a more elevated look. Although the Lia Dress is out of stock, our Wrap Dress offers similar movement and also features an overlapping front.

Black and olive might be unexpected color choices as we transition into warmer weather, but we’re super excited to add these warmer, darker, and subdued hues to our spring and summer wardrobes! Inspired by summers spent outside camping in the woods, and starry nights around the campfire, we’re ready to wear black and olive all summer long. Anything but heavy, the featured pieces are made of a light and flowy tencel material, giving them a relaxed and easy-going look. Shop black and olive pieces here!
Introducing this week’s Limited Edition piece, the Nikki Kimono, featuring a raw hem and offered in black and white denim. Its casual, laid-back denim material pairs great with your favorite tee and a pair of comfy pants, such as our Easy Tapered Trouser. Only 8 were made!
