Anthropologie Lovers, Beware!

Linnea White

In case you didn't know, we get a LOT of Anthropologie at Darling. Like, a lot. So, Anthropologie lovers: you've been warned. This outfit is exhibit A.

While this whole outfit may not be from Anthropologie, it sure looks like it could be. This dress is a stunning Anthro number in vibrant colors and an even more vibrant pattern for Summertime. The bag looks like one Anthropologie had this season, but it's actually form an ethical clothing brand call Fabrik. The shoes are from our Designer Finds section - See by Chloe. And, naturally, this look is accessorized with pieces from our local artisans collection: earrings by Little Paper Crane and Emily Warden Designs, rings by Lisa Christine Jewelry and Thicket.

Get your booties into Darling Boutique for all your Anthro for less, ladies.

Dressing Down the Dress

Linnea White

Not every dress needs to be dressed up with heels and dolled up with feminine charm. I love taking an otherwise girly piece and dressing down the dress. And that's what this look is all about.

Sunny with a high of... 94!! That means this white tee is an optional layer. However, despite the rising temps, I decided to show how to layer a classically feminine Summer gingham dress for a casual, cool, relaxed vibe. From a crisp white tee to a graphic tee, this layering potential is endless - and effortless. Pair it with a statement bag, like this vintage wicker piece, and a pair of easy slide sandals or white kicks for that added element of cool.

How do you like to dress down a dress?!

Fourth of July Outfit Inspo

Linnea White

Fourth of July is right around the corner, and we have all the Fourth of July outfit inspo you need for a little red, white, and blue style.

Outfit 1

For the classier fete, this vintage chambray maxi wrap dress with delicate embroidery around the hem is the perfect nod to the Fourth. Add a pair of red leather earrings or a red lip for that extra chic vibe.

Outfit 2

For a casual Fourth of July hang, from the backyard BBQ to the winery romp, a little blue and white romper with a pop of red is just right - in our darling opinion. Add a vintage handle bag for a little added interest.

Summertime Golden Hour Style Magic

Linnea White

If you know shop owner Linnea, you know she loves a jumpsuit. And if you know photographer Tristan, you know he loves a good golden hour. Combine the two loves, and you have some badass Summertime golden hour style magic.

When this jumpsuit came into the shop, it was instant love. And an instant photo shoot (like, literally, the next day we shot this outfit). Taking that badass up a notch was easy with the new 3 inch hoops by Little Paper Crane and an assortment of charm necklaces layered to perfection by Onastazia and Emily Warden Designs. We call this look, and that golden light, straight fire.
