I am such a fan of Brooklyn-based Upstate and their hand-dyed wares, I have one of their kimonos and constantly get compliments when I wear it. Their clothing and accessories just add that perfect pop of rich color and pattern. So, I can't think of a better accessory to bridge the gap from summer to fall than one of their raw silk sarongs ($225), which can be used as a beach sarong, beach towel, a scarf, a picnic blanket, bed cover, whatever you want! It's super multi-functional, 44" x 76", and we love each one of the seven colors they come in.
To enter to win a sarong of your choice: leave a comment below and tell us how you'd wear it or use it, and take a peek at the Upstate Instagram feed while you're at it—cool stuff going over there. Winner will be picked at random tomorrow (9/16) at 6:30pm PST. Good luck!
***The winner is: Cait who said "Beautiful! I would wear it as a wrap skirt all summer. I haven't had a sarong since I was a little kid. Perfect for New Zealand Summer". E-mail me: lizzie(at)gmail(dot)com!***
