Nothing says luxe like lazing around in our linen sheets from Parachute Home...except maybe doing it in linen PJs which, yay, just dropped and are available for shopping IRL at the brand's Hayes Valley store.
Plus, we discovered Harper the Label's effortless leather handbags, McEvoy Ranch's line of CBD wellness products, and Aliya Wanek's cropped and relaxed sweatshirts—a hot commodity that's at last back in stock (don't dawdle, though).
Dreamy PJs alert! Parachute is taking over your whole sleep situation.

We should all be grateful to Parachute for getting in between our (its?!) sheets—the brand's new line of linen loungewear and pajamas debuts today. If the women's tanks, tops, shorts, pants, sleep shirts and (unisex) robes are as delish as the brand's bedding, we're so in. And they should be considering they're made in Portugal of the same lightweight, breathable, and utterly unfussy linen. They also emit the same laid-back, Cali vibe. The pieces come in neutral shades of bone, coal, and clay. Match or contrast with your duvet cover as the mood strikes.
// Parachute loungewear is available in sizes XS-XL and retails for $49 to $99. Shop IRL at 445 Hayes St. (Hayes Valley) or online at parachutehome.com.
Hear ye, hear ye! This East Bay handbag line comes with a side of poetry.

When Claire Harper decided to start a handbag line, incorporating her original poetry was a given. As a designer, sculptor and poet, the East Bay dweller felt no need to adhere to any artistic boundaries. Thank goodness for that. The result is a collection of beautifully crafted leather bags, each with a line of embossed prose hidden on the back or underside of a strap. We love the idea of carrying around a little literary secret (shh!).
Harper the Label serves up three simple, subtly sculptural styles—a clutch, crossbody, and backpack—available in shades of black, saddle, and walnut. The European leather is certified chrome-fee (i.e. tanned not with harmful chemicals but with organic materials like leaves, bark, and seed pods) and the bags are made in a small NYC factory. Not sure which color you want? Order a leather swatch kit for a buck.
// Harper the Label bags range from $485 to $695. Shop online at harperthelabel.com.
Calm down with fresh CBD products from McEvoy Ranch.

No one loves new stuff from Bay Area makers more than we do. Indeed, cartwheels were turned when we learned of the Ode Oasis launch. They're from Petaluma's McEvoy Ranch, a ginormous working organic ranch that produces award-winning olive oils, small-lot wines, and yummy olive-oil-based skincare products. The new crew of wellness products—made with premium full-spectrum CBD—is designed to bring tranquility and focus to everyday living.
The lineup includes three tinctures: Calm and Clarity, made with 1000mg of beneficial cannabinoids and naturally occurring terpenes, and Calm Pet (Fido needs to chill, too). Rounding out the collection is the Ginger Lemon CBD Honey Stick for tea and other hot drinks, and two body balms, Soothe and Relief. The former is a rich body cream made with shea butter, lavender, and organic EVOO for hydration, while the latter is an all-purpose blend of coconut oil, lavender, and organic olive oil. Note: The CBD used in these products is non-psychoactive.
// Ode Oasis products ($5-$68) are available at odeoasis.com.
Aliya Wanek sweatshirts are no longer sold out, y'all.

If you've been coveting the cropped Ami ($90) and/or the relaxed Tig ($120) sweatshirts from Aliya Wanek, grab 'em now. After being sold out for far too long (trust us, we've tried), the hemp and organic-cotton goodies were just restocked. Although the BIPOC East Bay designer started her company five years ago, her eponymous label really took off last summer with the tsunami of support for Black-owned businesses. That, plus people clamoring for cool and comfy work-from-home basics meant her sweatshirts were in demand with a capital D.
They come in a gorgeous palette of pastel and punchy shades designed to complement BIPOC skin tones—and in sizes small to 3X. Wanek works with two small Bay Area factories and contractors to produce and dye her garments with an eye toward reducing their environmental impact. Just added olive Ami and dusty rose Tig to cart. You?
