Wanderlust Highlights: Yoga Fashion Under $100

Much of the buzz around the Wanderlust Festival in California has been about the yoga and the music. But one thing I also love about Wanderlust is the shopping. What’s the connection between shopping and well-being? Any woman will tell you retail therapy is one surefire way to soothe the soul. Besides, yoga fashion is fashion you can truly feel good about—whether that means socially responsible manufacturing practices, organic fabrics you can move in, or simply inspirational pieces that resonate with your inner spirit. There was a lot to choose from at this year’s Wanderlust. Below are a few affordable finds I fell in love with.

b by donna m is 100% made in California. The Shirred Wrap, $95, shown above on the lovely Jillian can be worn in so many different ways and it’s super soft. Jillian paired her black wrap with the Rollover Legging in garnet, $82.

When the weather hits a near 90 degrees like it did today in Tahoe, a figure-flattering dress made of light, breathable fabric is the perfect summer ensemble. This halter Tulip Dress, $50, by Nectar Creations  caught my eye. Love the hat, $35, too.

This Mirage Racerback top in Lemongrass was in the sale bin at the Dude Girl tent. A shimmery sleeveless top for $10? I’m all over it. Find more sale items online.

Of course, a yoga outfit isn’t complete without some yoga-inspired jewelry. Now, when it comes to yoga-inspired jewelry, there’s a fine line between lovely and just plain cheesy. But I thought these Lotus Flower necklaces, handmade in Tahoe by Lala Jewelry were on the lovely side, $50 to $70. You can find Lala Jewelry on Etsy starting in August.
