Spring Florals and Flats: Flirty Style

Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking. - The Devil Wears Prada

Ok, so, Spring florals may not be new, trendy, or groundbreaking, but they sure are cute and the perfect way to brighten your wardrobe with that Spring-spiration (proud of that pun, y'all).

A touch of floral makes the day bright, and the outfit right (I've had too much caffeine, clearly). We love the contrast of a classic, tailored pant with the boho sleeves and flowy fabric of this white blouse. Talk about easy, breezy, CoverGirl. The Charlie ankle pant from Anthropologie is a classic style, and they've produced it in a variety of patterns or colors of the years. This pair's pink and orange floral pop on that green base.

I about died when the J. Crew flats came in to the shop in the same hue of orange. Fun flats for Spring are pouring in to the shop, and so worth finding the perfect pair for your foot. Make sure they're comfortable and not just good-lookin'!

Don't forget to add a pink lip and a bolder fuchsia nail color as you move boldly into your Spring wardrobe. It's time! Seize the Spring day!

Virginia Film Festival Style: Feeling French

Linnea White

From Cannes to Charlottesville, from fashion to film, the season of the film festival is an exciting one. And it's that time of year in Charlottesville! The Virginia Film Festival begins tomorrow, November 3, and runs through Sunday, November 6, and brings the best of international, domestic, and local films to the theaters of Cville every year. And Darling is partnering with the festival to bring you the best of Virginia's film festival style. Giving a nod to the renown French film festival, and to the many black & white and historical film screenings happening at Vinegar Hill Theater, I styled this adorable VFF Intern, Lucie Lyon, in a black & white, European-inspired ensemble. It all began with the j'adore sweater, and quickly became a modern, chic look with classic elements - like the red lip and locket-look necklace, declaring our love for Virginia and this wonderful festival. The mod mini skirt, silk scarf, geometric clutch, and platform booties give this look a modern edge, perfect for the cultured film go-ers of today.

Darling adores the Virginia Film Festival! How will you get styled for the weekend festivities? Leave a comment or show us your #vffstyle on Instagram, and win two ticket vouchers, available for pick up at the shop!
