For Tribeza’s style issue, we tapped the tastemaker to share the local items she’s loving to create healthy, happy routines for fall.
Camel Pants from Kickpleat
Time to bid farewell to your cutoffs and flip flops — your fall wardrobe needs a pair of sophisticated, well-cut pants. However, pulled-together doesn’t have to mean uptight, and I love that these WJ Martin pants boast an elastic waist that will make these my official WFH uniform this fall. Kick Pleat owner Wendi Martin has created this exclusive brand that’s brimming with gorgeous fabrics and smartly cut silhouettes.
Waterproof Duffel from YETI
The changing of the seasons is as good a reason as any to invest in a new piece of gear from YETI. This waterproof duffel is exactly what you’ve come to expect from the Austin-based brand: durable, versatile and quality you can trust. Break it in with a camping trip at McKinney Falls.
Calligraphy Lesson with Amanda Reid Design
What better time of the year to sharpen those hand-lettering skills? It’s a nod to back to school — but without any of the awkwardness and there’s wine instead of juice boxes. Amanda guides you through a night of creativity (and snacks) as she breaks down the art of modern calligraphy and brush-lettering, and always set in some of Austin’s prettiest meeting spaces. This class is beginner friendly so you can keep that life-long learning going.
Wonder Valley Oil Cleanser from ByGeorge
After-summer skin requires a gentle transition into fall. Wonder Valley believes in the power of olive oil as a universal holistic ingredient and the key to radiant skin. This honeysuckle-scented cleanser is full of antioxidants and requires a gentle massage to apply — which just happens to be a lovely way to begin and end the day.
Linen Sheets from Wildflower
What’s just as important as a morning routine? Establishing a solid sleep routine, since few things are more impactful for your health and energy levels than a good night’s rest. I love these breathable (and beautiful) linen sheets that stay warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and make climbing into bed a truly luxurious experience. Made in Portugal, they have a relaxed, lived-in look that you’ll keep forever.
Aromatic Shower Steamer from Esker
We all have to take a shower, so why not make it aromatherapy? Austin-based skincare brand, Esker, just released its all-natural shower steamer tablets that are vapor and water activated, releasing refreshing essential oils and transforming your shower into a spa-like experience. The tablets come in a grounding Calendula Palo Santo and uplifting Eucalyptus Lavender, each handcrafted with dried botanicals.
Succulent Subscription from The Little Posey
Gentle suggestion: make fresh flowers and plants part of your at-home routine. Sign up for a subscription from The Little Posey, guaranteed to boost your mood and make your house cuter, too. Peruse their selections of fresh flower deliveries — I’m partial to the simple little potted succulents that show up at your doorstep every three months (perfect for those of us without the greenest of thumbs).
Meditation Journal from Take Heart
When I’m feeling overwhelmed, journaling is the number one way I refocus my energy. This meditative aid from Take Heart gives journalers an outlet for self-healing through writing a daily note to self, intention setting and answering thought-provoking questions.
Half-Zip Hiking Pullover from Lululemon
‘Tis the season to update to my school drop-off wardrobe. With the promise of cooler weather to come (fingers crossed), this half-zip is the perfect transition piece from drop off to my daily morning walk. Trust me, this is the jacket you never knew you needed but suddenly can’t live without.
Locally Roasted Coffee Beans from Flat Track
Few things are more sacred than my morning coffee ritual. I love to indulge and give it even more real estate in my a.m. routine by grinding beans fresh at home. Flat Track’s coffee beans are roasted here in Austin — the perfect elevation to your morning cup. Ask the barista for a recommendation to match your taste.
Lavender and Cedar Candle from Slow North
Elevate even your busiest workday by burning this all-natural candle with soothing lavender and Texas cedarwood essential oils on your desk. Its calming and woodsy scent will ground your morning in a moment of self-care. Austin-based Slow North candles are made of plant-based ingredients, soy wax and 100% essential oil fragrances — you can see (and smell) the quality.
Buckle & Seam Leather Backpack from estilo
Who says kids should get all the fun? Fall is the perfect time to treat yourself to a new backpack for hauling your stuff in style, though this one from estilo, handmade in Germany with gorgeous brown leather, is decidedly more grown-up. This top-loader offers an insane amount of storage space with integrated pockets and compartments to make this your most organized season ever.
Delivery from Alchemy Juice
If your summer consisted of a few too many frozen margaritas (same), there’s no easier way to reign it in than with Alchemy’s cold-pressed, organic juices delivered straight to your door. Each juice contains nearly two pounds of produce to power up your day and supercharge your fall routine.
