The Good, Bad, and Everything in Between: May 2017

The Good: We’ve had an amazing couple months since launching the Warm Weather collection. I honestly can’t thank you enough for your continued support since launching Sotela last year. Facebook recently reminded me that it has been a year since this campaign. Boy does time fly when you are having fun.

If you missed this post, then you haven’t heard I’m pregnant! The Sotela family is expanding in August 2017. You can expect a blog post with my Sotela outfits from each trimester since that is all I wear now. Happy to report that Sotela’s clothes fit well during pregnancy! I’m a little over 6 months pregnant and still have plenty of space in every piece. The Mara jumpsuit is the only thing that may have to be retired soon.

The Bad: I’m short an intern, which means less blog posts! I’m trying to maintain a regular blogging schedule, but it’s becoming harder doing that as well as everything else. If you are looking for content marketing experience and are passionate about ethical fashion, please let me know!

Everything in Between: This year has flown by because I’ve also been working a seasonal part time job before baby.  So please forgive me if I’m delayed in my email responses. I’m still a one woman show and doing everything myself. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean I don’t love hearing from you! If you have any questions about fit or certain products, please send your emails my way! I know it can be tricky purchasing new clothing online, which is why I started the #sotelaeverydaywoman series on the blog last year. With every collection, I hope to show how each product looks on different women.

What you can expect next: More colors and 2-3 new pieces this fall. I’m still trying to figure out the timing with baby and all, but it will happen! I’ve started sourcing fabric, but in all honesty, I can’t get over how much I love tencel. It works so perfectly for pieces that span multiple sizes because it drapes beautifully on every woman. I’m thinking about adding pants (!!!), a top to layer over the Essentials collection, and a long sleeve dress. These designs aren’t final yet, but they’ve been stewing in my mind for some time.

Announcements: My husband and I will be going on a baby moon to Hawaii for a week. Since I will be gone and away from the office, shipping will be delayed until I get back on May 29th. If you have any questions, please feel to email me! I will be checking my email intermittently.

As always, you guys are the best. Thank you!
