Spring Style Inspiration: Lilac Grey

Linnea White

Spring is starting to sprout here in the shop, with new Spring arrivals sprinkling in and blushed, flushed Spring hues scattering the racks. And we're having a serious moment with Lilac Grey right now.

This entire outfit was inspired by the arrival of locally made, small batch nail polish in Lilac Grey. This color is perfect for transitioning to Spring (and so is grey). So are layers. And this outfit embraces Spring hues and Spring layers in darling fashion.

This lilac hued floral dress by American Eagle's latest brand offshoot - Don't Ask Why - is perfect for transitioning into Spring. Add a sweater or jacket for an easy layered look, like this cozy light grey Loft one. And why not keep it sassy with an equally cozy felt hat from Free People, and a pair of grey booties from Madewell. Oh, and of course, because matchy matchy, this locally made leather choker was the perfect lilac hue for pairing with this look.

What are some of your favorite Spring hue color combinations?

Winter Layering: Sweater Weather, Part 3

Linnea White

Sometimes a woman's best friend is the softest, coziest, and warmest sweater in her closet. And this chunky knit number is oh-so-perfect for all the Winter layering needs. When a bunch of amazing Free People comes into the shop in one week, I tend to get a little giddy. With an assortment of Winter hats, sweaters, dresses, and tops, it was time to play dress up.

This embroidered short crop Free People sweater is even more stunning in person, with vibrant colors and a dolphin cut hem. For warmth, I layered it with a long, flowy, chunky open sweater for a little proportion play. The extra long sleeves on this sweater gives me life - literally, because it keeps the blood flowing in my fingers, which are always cold in the Winter.

I kept the bottom of this look monotone, pairing neutrals like this taupe pair of Level 99 jeans and Frye Engineer boots. Add a pink lip for a color pop (locally made by Kitsune's Closet, of course) and top it all off with a slouchy beanie for the perfect casual Winter layering style.
