Coffee Date Style | How to Wear Spring Layers

Linnea White

MG_7081.jpg

When Spring doesn't look or feel like Spring, and the chilly days linger a little too long, don't let the weather steal your Spring vibes. Play with romantic layers and lacy textures this season to keep the ethereal magic of Spring alive. It's the ideal palette for rainy day coffee date style. For this rainy day Spring look, we visited one of our favorite spots on the mall - The Pie Chest. Not only are we pie addicts (I think I've tried just about every one), but we're also coffee addicts, and there's no place that makes us a better brew than Milli Coffee Roasters. The cute shop is the coziest getaway from the chilly rain, and a crisp backdrop for this outfit.

Romantic vibes are big this season, from the runway to the sale rack. And this lacy kimono is the perfect layering piece for those chilly Spring days, all while keeping that ethereal, romantic vibe. This flowy Maeve Anthropologie blouse in such a rich teal hue is a gorgeous compliment to the cream lace. And with rainy, 50 degree days in May (we can't even), these cutout suede booties are an easy addition to just about any Spring outfit. (Find some booties style inspiration here.)

This outfit is pretty much all about the accessories, though, featuring so many beautiful new arrivals from our local artisans in the shop. From the necklace to the earrings to the cuffs, the new pieces by Free Range & Feral is absolutely stunning in all its boho glory. And the leather handmade foldover clutch by Petaline is available in a variety of fabric/leather combinations. Not to be forgotten, the finishing touches on every outfit - locally made cosmetics by Kitsune’s Closet. Because what's a coffee date without the perfect lipstick stain on your mug?

Spring Layers to the Max(i)

Linnea White

On days like today, it's all a girl can do to wear clever Spring layers. Early Spring in Virginia can be a tricky transitional season to dress for, and that's where smart layering comes in.

Once again, this look started with a statement piece - this maxi skirt from Anthropologie. From the pattern to the tassel ties, this skirt is a beauty. The J. Crew anorak jacket was next, dressing down the skirt and giving the look a layer for the chilly Spring temperatures. For a pop of color, this J. Crew tank top paired perfectly with one of the newest lip colors from Kitsune's Closet, Fiesta, a bright orangey-red perfect for the warmer weather ahead. Add some simple accessories by Dinosaur Toes and this classic Madewell leather bag for a look ready for any Spring day.

Boho Spring Style: Easy Breezy

Linnea White

MG_0445_cropped-1.jpg

While last week was all about bright floral prints and the Spring color report, I was drawn to this beautiful black and white number for this week's Dressing Up outfit, so ethereal and enigmatic. The flowy boho Spring frock paired perfectly with our stunning new pieces by Dinosaur Toes and new Iced Coffee lipstick color by Kitsune's Closet.

With the 70's making a come back on the runways in the past year, there are plenty of reasons to embrace your inner boho this Spring and Summer. From crocheted looks to embroidered textures, flowy frocks and vibrant patterns, let your flower child out for a style spin. Dance in the warm Spring breeze, hair wild and free.
