Some people are sad when Summer ends. No more swimsuits, flip flops or sundresses. However, I look forward to the beautiful foliage, harvest festivals, and crisp cool air of fall, as well as the cozy sweaters, family time, and quiet calm that Winter brings. (more…)
Calling all buds! It’s time to let the world know how they can help our beautiful earth…and the human race! As a patron of this wonderful company, I’m sure it’s no news to you that pesticides have been affecting our bees. They have been disappearing and their colonies have been declining. This is not good, buds! (more…)
Though snow and hot chocolate with marshmallows can be fun, every winter I quickly find myself looking forward to Summer. I think of rubbing my feet through the sand, the smell of sunscreen, the warm sun on my skin, the cool breeze…but mostly, that giant blue ocean. This is the time of year that summer is so close, yet so far! (more…)
Hello Buds! I’m sure many of you were as intrigued as I was when you saw the Wild Thing Hooded Patch Vest for the first time. It’s no ordinary patchwork top. The different colors, patterns and textures make it one of the most versatile pieces in my wardrobe. (more…)
Dragonflies are my favorite insects for many reasons, the two main ones being:
1) They eat mosquitoes!
2) They look so unique and colorful and free
With these Bojangles Beach Pants, it’s the details! First, the obvious: the pattern. It is so unique and crazy! A mix of bright, eye-catching colors mixed with deep purple and black. Then up the side there is a long line of a deep, wine-like purple with brown wooden buttons. The mixture of black and brown on these pants make it so that you can wear them with anything! The lace lining the bottom of the legs is the same deep purple. I was worried these pants would be too long for me (I am 5’2″) and they were. But I could easily roll the waist band over to achieve the desired length. That is a big plus! The material is light and airy which is perfect for summer beaches or nights out.
And who could forget the little jingle bells?? Yes, they actually jingle when you walk! I have never seen anything like it! It inspired me to wear them out to one of my gigs. I sing (and play tambourine) in a classic rock cover band. The cute little bells reminded me of my tambourine, and the thought of using my legs as another instrument excited me. Plus, these pants are so GROOVY! Nothing else in my closest is this worthy of wearing while singing Led Zeppelin. Perfect for playing tambourine and dancing during “Soul Man” by the Blue’s Brothers. And when I hit that cowbell during “Gimme Three Steps” I feel very much in character. Oh, and I don’t get too hot when I’m grooving in them. Best worn with boots, platforms if you have them!!!
“He said the name Bojangles and he danced a lick all across the cell
He grabbed his pants for a better stance, oh, he jumped so high and he clicked up his heel
He let go laugh, he let go laugh, shook back his clothes all aroun
Mr. Bojangles, Mr. Bojangles, dance, yeah, dance.”
The Bojangles Beach Pants were also featured in Soul Flower’s Summer Bliss Lookbook, if you want to check out more style possibilities! 🙂
It’s that time of year again…
Soul-Flower has put up lots of new amazing dresses for spring and summer, and I’m sure there will be many more to come! They sent me the beautiful Mystified Hi-Lo Dress. It’s tribal pattern and eye-catching yet subtle colors make a statement. It’s also fully lined, which is unexpected and awesome!
However, there’s one dilemma; where I live, as well as a lot of other parts of the country, it’s still chilly outside! BUT don’t panic…there is a way to get some use out of those awesome strapless and sleeveless dresses before the temperature goes up.
There are 3 things every girl should have in her wardrobe to assure that she will get lots of use out of her clothes all year round:
3) Great boots
I like to have each of those things in brown and black; that way, I will be able to wear any sleeveless dress at any time of the year I want! I suggest buying soul-flower’s leggings because they are made with organic cotton. Other good things to have are cardigans, scarves, and arm/leg warmers. They can turn any summer dress into a fall, winter, or early spring outfit. And there you have it. Simple ways to get the most bang for your buck with soul-flower’s cool threads!
And here’s a happy song to warm your soul – Hope you like it! 🙂
Soul Flower knows their tie dye! Who can resist bright, bold colors like pink and green? Add in the earthy brown and you’ve got yourself one fun piece of clothing that gives off good vibes. I picked out this skirt because I needed to brighten up my winter!
If you’ve got the winter blues, prepare to have them chased away. I wore this in the snow and I was still comfy. This organic tie-dye skirt is long enough to keep your legs warm this season and will transition well into the summer. The large band at the waist even makes it possible to pull up and turn into a dress! You will be wearing this one all year long. It’s great whether you want to lounge around or go out and have some fun.
This skirt is a Soul Flower original, and as you know, soul-flower is awesome about supporting a healthy environment. This skirt was made with organic cotton and low-impact dyes, and it’s Fair Trade!

This Organic Robin Hoody Tunic is more than just a comfortable tunic in a beautiful color. This piece of clothing represents change, and a step in the right direction taken by people who not only have a desire to make the planet better, but who take initiative and make it happen!
Buds, I’m grateful to have a store like soul-flower.com to provide me with wonderful brands like Earth Creations. This company makes their clothing with sustainable fabrics, such as organic hemp and cotton. Feel better and healthier knowing that your garment is free of any pesticides that could harm you or mother earth’s water sources. When it comes to dyes, no worries here; natural dyes (like clay) and low impact dyes are used instead of the usual toxic dyes and contaminating salt found in “conventional” clothing.
And another bonus is that this company supports made in the USA.
Jammin’ out to Scarlet Begonias – Sublime & Grateful Dead Cover in my Organic Robin Hoody Tunic!
This hemp tunic in particular is lovely. In addition to being guilt free it is so cute and comfortable. It has pockets, a hood, and long sleeves to keep you warm on those cold days (and at the same time, you don’t get overbearingly hot!). The cool buttons and details make it a stylish piece. Go for this tunic and support two awesome companies while looking great!
In my opinion, early to mid-fall is the perfect time of year for festivals! The air is crisp and cool yet the sun is still shining. And we can’t forget how the trees change into beautiful colors. (more…)
I don’t know about the rest of you, but where I live it has been soooo HOT! The only thing you can do in this kind of weather is go to the pool with an umbrella and some sunscreen (spf 100 if you’re as fair skinned as me!)
But the heat brings another problem; clothes! When it’s as hot as it is in the middle of Summer, you have to have something that is made out of thin, cool fabric and is still cute at the same time. Soul Flowers Sunrise Suprise halter top is exactly what you need! It comes in bright, eye-catching yellow and orange hues with a splash of red. The halter top allows your back and shoulders to breathe free from any fabric, and it looks super cute! It is great to wear alone, or over your bathing suit.
Plus, it’s fair trade! And on SALE!
So get it while you can and enjoy the rest of your summer! 🙂
Your Bud Kirbie
Hello, fellow buds! My name is Kirbie and I am lucky enough to say that I am one of Soul Flower’s newest additions to the Karma Krewe! I love Soul Flower because it is a wonderful company with friendly, true blue workers, and you can give outward expressions of inward feelings through clothing that is good to the earth and its people. So far, in my 20 years of life, my inward experiences have been mostly positive. If I have a bad experience, I turn it around and make it a good one because I know that it taught me something that I can apply later on in life. I am a singer/songwriter too, so I can also take those negative (and positive) experiences and turn them into a song. That way, there is always a happy ending to every life lesson!
To me, nothing is more important in life than happiness. This is why I felt right at home when I first started listening to reggae music. The lyrics in reggae music always come back to love and happiness. Most of the lyrics uncover issues that keep us from these things. A lot of songs are about the artist’s true love. Then there are the songs about sitting back, relaxing, and just enjoying life. And who can resist those bouncy off-beat guitar rhythms? Yes indeed, whenever I hear this irresistable music, it’s like I’m in my own little paradise. What other way to express these happy feelings than through my reggae influenced pop music?
When I saw these, I just had to have them. They practically screamed out my name! They are perfect for me. The bright colors are eye-catching, yet down to earth, thanks to the scarce brown color throughout the pants. I was a little worried about them being too hot; after all, it is the middle of May and it isn’t going to get any colder! But they turned out to actually keep my legs cool in the sun! Plus, you can roll them up and button them if you want to wade in the water. They weren’t too short OR too long. They fit around my hips and bottom, which I was suprised about. Great for running and dancing! Just when I thought they couldn’t get any better, I remembered they were fair trade….What are you waiting for?!
You are a soul-flower customer. That very fact means that you are unique! So get out there and express your beautiful, happy self through these fantastical pants!
