Mother's Day with Francesca Elmore
We sat down with our Friend Fran Elmore, a California native and works as a professional hair and make-up artist to give some insight on what motherhood means to her.
Motherhood means being a constant source of love and protection. It starts between mother and child, but transcends beyond that and flows abundantly into every other aspect of life. The journey so far has cracked my heart open to so much more love than I've ever known, and it just keeps growing more each day.
While I was pregnant, it felt like the world needed a little harmony.
I'm still figuring this one out, it can be so difficult! I try to just go with the flow not to be too hard on myself. When I feel overwhelmed, going outside and slowing down helps restore balance and remind me what's most important. When I get free moments, I like to enjoy simple things around my house like laying in fresh sheets, drinking tea in my yard or planning a special meal to cook.
My mother taught me how to cook a perfect pot of beans.
Harmony inspires me to stay creative personally and to build a beautiful environment for us both to explore little projects we want to work on. I hope to nurture creativity in him and inspire him to bring to life any ideas he has.
I've been slowly reading the book Braiding Sweetgrass whenever I find time. Halfway through reading it, I learned my husband's grandfather has origins in the Potawatomitribe; who the book is written about.
We just finished Pam & Tommy. And we've been listening to a lot of spring inspired jazz & Rosalía around the house lately.
Hopefully with a long breakfast and ending up at the beach!
I really loved the black and white gingham overalls. I felt like I could move freely in them and can tell they'll break in nicely over time.
Even though most days I'm in some variation of a vintage work pant and white tank, I do love how statement pieces make me feel. I end up weaving some sort of statement into my day to day outfits, it's more fun that way!
Brixton and Thrasher linked up this summer to travel overseas to Lisbon, Portugal for a few weeks. We are excited to premiere the video Role Call, alongside Thrasher on September 29th at Zebulon.
In tribute to time-honored fall style, we look back at a few of our favorite Hollywood icons who made headwear intrinsic to their look.
