Hours passed like minutes and at 5:45pm that evening I birthed our son(sun) into Sam's hands in a birthing pool in our living room. Just the two of us and our doula were present. The atmosphere was calm and totally us. No unneeded energy buzzing around the room. I laid there on the edge of the bath rubbing my newborns back and kissing his velvet hair.
We had a son!
And we couldn't believe it.
Coming back to my visions for Barefoot Wanderer to be a brand that creates multifunctional apparel, I had plans for this design to be worn as a wrapped dress, a slinky dressing gown or left hanging loose as a kimono type robe. The perfect non-crease and lightweight fabric that can be easily rolled up into your backpack or tucked inside the minimal draw space of your moving home.
This one is certainly a dress for The Wanderers of the world.
I couldn’t believe it! After months of strain I finally had a big beautiful win in the form of realising the beautiful community I’ve got cheering me on over here. So I just wanted to say ‘Thank you!’ for supporting Barefoot Wanderer and our very sloooooow way of doing fashion. I love that you love supporting small and that you choose to care for the earth over the noise of harmful fashion trends.
What a crazy beautiful few months it’s been. I have been pushing myself harder than ever, working five days a week at two different ‘real jobs’ and frying my brain on Barefoot Wanderer when my babies lay their heads to rest at night.
