Memorial Day Style | Summer Sundress

Linnea White

The temperatures are rising, the sun is shining, and the large bodies of water are calling. It's sundress season, and we're sporting some red, white, and blue for some Memorial Day style.

With a huge selection in stock, the perfect Summer sundress is waiting for you at Darling, and this new number by Roxy had us craving some oceanside hangs. With a subtle nod to nautical design, this dress is perfect for all of the Memorial Day festivities. Tie a little white blouse (linen or cotton for those hotter days) at the narrowest part of your waist to draw in the otherwise voluminous skirt on this number.

Playing with the nautical theme, this straw tote bag and gold sandals got us beach-ready. These nautical button studs by local artisan Pip's & Co are a simple addition to the look. And, of course, we had to feature the vibrant new lip and nail polish colors by Kitsune's Closet, made right here in Charlottesville. That Fiesta Red lipstick is our new favorite for Summer, and this Tomato nail polish is seriously rich in pigment and sass.

While this outfit has us ready to hit the pool, lake, or beach, we want to know: where are you headed to this Memorial Day Weekend to kick off Summer in style?

The Little White Dress

Linnea White

Who said you can't wear white before Memorial Day? When it comes to style, rules are made for breaking. Because right now, the little white dress is making a serious statement, and it's giving us all the Summer feels - although, I'm game for the White-Out look year-round. If you're not sure how to rock the all white ensemble, the perfect place to start is a little white dress --- Pure Summer Ease. This Madewell dress is the perfect white dress for warmer days ahead. Airy, white linen, with a touch of cream embroidery and a loose fit, it's as comfortable as it is stylish. Accessorized with simple details, like freshly painted bright nails and statement jewelry, the little white ensemble is ready for just about any Summer outing.

With a whole new shipment of pieces by Dinosaur Toes, I went all out to showcase these beautiful locally made baubles. We can't keep them on the shelves and restock quickly enough, so come in and snag them while you can! And don't forget it's time to update that mani-pedi, and what better way to support local than this small batch, natural ingredients, locally made nail polish by Kitsune’s Closet in Pantone colors, available at the shop!
