Saint James is the original purveyor of the iconic Breton stripe.It seems simplistic, but staking that claim is a really big deal. Now, I've already disclosed that I represent this brand, and I couldn't be more proud to do so. As an effect, I wear Saint James stripes most days, and, thusly, they've become apart of my 'uniform'. But beyond stripes being a wardrobe staple for me--and most, quite honestly--this brand is the real deal.
So, what even is considered business casual these days? Especially with the rise of athleisure, the lines have been blurred, and quite honestly I just don't know what qualifies anymore.

I'm Steph, founder of Orchard and Broome, and the brain, voice, and being behind this blog. Launching a lifestyle blog has been a long-term goal of mine. And yes--I know--I'm kind of late to the game (peak entrance into the blogging scene happened around 2007?). I assure you, though, this will be worth following. Here, on OB, I'm excited to share what I've gathered in terms of know-how for leading a beautifully balanced, thoughtfully approached and overwhelmingly fulfilling life.
