Summer is officially underway, and with the arrival of sun, fun, and overall good vibes, we decided it was high-time to add our favorite new print to the mix. Enter,Nirvana Melbourne.This feel-good style’s name is no coincidence — in fact, one glance at this dreamy watercolor is enough to transport you to a state of absolute bliss. Don’t believe us?

The best gifts in life are always the most thoughtful ones. But the second best gifts? The ones that give you the option to pick and choose whatever you want. So, this Mother’s Day, we’re giving away a $500 Brahmin gift card so one lucky winner can do just that. (You read right.) Follow the steps below to enter, and remember don’t — or do! — blow it all in one place. It’s your prerogative, after all.
Mother’s Day graces our calendars just once a year, but to us, honoring the special moms and mom-figures in our lives is so much more than a one-day affair. In an effort to celebrate these special relationships in our lives every day, we created the Mom + Mini shop — full of coordinating pieces perfect for mixing, matching, and passing along to every generation of ladies in your life. Whether you’re dreaming of coordinating vacation pics with your mini-me or on a quest to gift the mom who’s crazy for the micro bag trend — there’s no wrong way to try this line.
Below, take a peek at some of our favorite mother-daughter duos (including bloggers Brittany Maddux, Pure Joy Home, and Lauren Lefevre) and be sure to submit your own matching photos — or a solo pic with your favorite mini style! — by tagging us on Instagram.
Anyone who travels often enough for work knows there’s a few common speed bumps that come with the territory. From figuring out how to look professional (but still comfy enough to hail a cab, drag a suitcase, and stand in security lines) to finding a functional tote that can store it all, work travel can often feel mega-intimidating. Which is why, we decided to help give you a head start (and a few tried-and-true tips we’ve learned) with our newest Travel Dilemmas, Solved video. Just press play, and remember: You don’t have to be the boss to travel like one.
Mother’s Day is a special time to celebrate the selfless, powerful women who bring color to our worlds. From moms and mom-figures to sisters and BFFs, each of these women play leading roles in shaping who we are and how we walk through life — which is why this year, we’re widening the lens of how we look at the holiday to recognize all of them. (Plus, we all have that one friend-group Mom who deserves a little extra recognition.)
In the spirit of celebrating these diverse relationships and the women we admire most, we curated a fun gift guide to capture the ultimate picks for the various moms, mom-figures, and honorary moms in our lives. Because what better way to say “Thank you for all that you do” than with personalized picks made to fit into their busy worlds? And, let’s be honest… a new handbag or travel staple beat flowers any day of the week.

The Mover & Shaker
At Brahmin, we believe in traveling often and traveling well. We also know that with every trip comes a few common dilemmas: What to pack. How to look professional for a work trip. How to squeeze every.last.thing into just a carryon… you get the gist.
Since it’s almost that time of year (the season of long weekends and PTO aplenty), we made it our mission to work through the trickiest travel dilemmas with a fun three-part video series: Travel Dilemmas, Solved. First on the agenda? Throwing practicality to the wind and embracing your inner overpacker. Because when you can’t pick just one Evie, you might as well pack them all. At least — that’s our take.
Two weeks ago, we took the Brahmin Tour to Austin to present a special installment of goop’s g.Talk series, featuring Chief Content Officer Elise Loehnen and CEO-and-founder of Career Contessa, Lauren McGoodwin. From the importance of finding a mentor to networking with companies you admire, the seasoned professionals offered up sage advice for taking charge of your career (pro tip: a power bag that keeps you organized from meetings to after-hours is a must). Browse a few of our favorite moments from the empowering evening, and shop goop’s power picks from our spring collection here.

There’s something about spring that inspires us to reach outside of our comfort zones and approach dressing with a more fun, colorful approach. Where we might usually opt for neutral shades or everyday textures, we find ourselves reaching for styles with a bit more oomph. Think: fashion forward materials like intricately woven leathers on top of cool canvas, or well-placed pops of straw with colorful leather trim. Ready to shake things up this season, too? You’re in the right place. Below, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite on-trend textures from the spring 2019 collection to help get your most creative ensembles started.
If you’ve been following us for a while on social media, you’ll know last year we launched the #BrahminTour in an effort to bring the best of Brahmin to your neck of the woods. We traveled the country near and far — from the birthplace of rock ’n’ roll to the Carolinas to back home in New England — seeing so many of you along the way. This year, we brought the tour back on the road, starting with one of our favorite charming spots: Charleston, South Carolina.
In celebration of the launch of our trunk show at The Skinny Dip, we hosted a few of our favorite local bloggers — from Kristin Chambless to Julia Engel to Megan Pinckney — to preview our spring line before its public debut this weekend. With specialty sips, cute photo moments, and must-have bags around every corner, the night was one to remember. The best part? Our trunk show collection is now fully available to shop at The Skinny Dip, Charleston today through Sunday, 3/10. Swing by to say hi and leave with a new handbag (or two — who’s counting?). Can’t make it? Stay up to date here with dates and locations of our upcoming stops.
It’s not every day you see a print that literally makes you stop and smile — but that’s exactly what happened the first time our design team gave us a glimpse of spring’s new Multi Pompano collection. The cheeky embossed print feels like sweet treat and a tropical escape all wrapped into one, and in a mix of styles, there’s no reason not wear it morning, noon, and night. After all, a pineapple handbag a day keeps the blues away, right?
