Designer for Less: Fall Style Edition

Linnea White

The weather may not be participating in Fall, but we are. And today it's all about rocking designer for less, thanks to the best consignment in Charlottesville. This suede-lush, flare jeans look is giving us serious seventies vibes for Fall days ahead.

Besides the obvious sexy seventies vibes of this look, we're rocking some amazing designer finds. From this timeless Prada utility jacket to the perfect Calypso St. Barth flare jeans to the stunning suede All Saints tote bag, this look is filled with secondhand scores you can write home about. "Hey, Mom, I started shopping consignment, and brought an entire outfit for the original price of just this pair of jeans!" I mean, my mom would be proud.

What do you love about consignment? The designer finds for less? The steals under $10? Tell us in the comments!

Darling Celebration: The Blog is Back!

Linnea White

After a few months away, the blog is back! And that's something worth celebrating. Two months ago, I became the sole owner of Darling Boutique, and it's been a crazy ride these last few weeks. I'm honored to be a lady boss on 1st Street, and I couldn't help but twirl with joy on 1st Street in this party number. I'm also thrilled to be working with local photographer, Tristan Williams, to produce new darling style inspiration, bring new faces to the blog, and celebrate this altogether beautiful life. Be you, darlings. The you God created you to be. Live each day close to your Creator, who created you to create. Never lose your wonder. Live abundantly, live wisely, live boldly, live creatively. And that includes your wardrobe! Now let's get to dressing up with Darling!

Back in Black

I felt like celebrating the relaunch of the blog, and this Anthropologie fringe top and Calypso St. Barth silk maxi skirt brought the party - with a little flare. Fringe is all the rage this season, and this fringe top was made for twirling and all the Fall fetes. From jeans and boots to a skirt and heels, this top is versatile and, most importantly, fun. Add an on-trend grey nail polish and a red lip, both locally made by Kitsune's Closet, and this outfit is made for any Fall occasion - like being a shop girl, all day, every day.

Dressing Up with Darling: Summer Picnic Style

Linnea White

Midsummer. That time of year when the days are long and the evening sun is the perfect time for a picnic. Relief from the heat of the day, and enough daylight for an evening with friends. Last week, we put together two summer outfits for an impromptu midsummer's eve picnic in the backyard. Long maxi skirts, lightweight fabrics, dreamy hues, and delicate jewelry made for the perfect summer picnic ensemble. Don't forget a throw-all straw bag for your picnic essentials!
