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.

Winter Fur | Every Day Drama

Linnea White

When a vintage fur shawl finds its way into the shop, Winter fur outfit ideas (the overly dramatic kind) come to life. This Fall and Winter, fur has been full on trending, from the runways to the department stores, and we've seen a number of great fur pieces in the shop (here, here, and here). On a blustery cold Winter day this past weekend, I bundled up by layering a full length velvet skirt with this cozy vintage fur shawl. Add a top knot, a plum lip, a high neck tank, and black booties for a dramatic every day Winter look.

High Fashion Fall | Dressing Up with Darling

Linnea White

New York Fashion Week may have just ended, but we're definitely feeling a little high fashion this Fall. With the Garrett Street mural as our backdrop, we took this outfit to a new level of fashion. This outfit started with the Gary Graham silk skirt, a piece with the "rebel courage" and romantic edge the brand is known for. With a pair of sky high heels and a retro patterned blouse, this outfit screamed art. Add the gorgeous L.A.M.B. leather bag for added cool. Top knot not included.

Dressing Up with Darling: School Formal

Linnea White

Darling_4.26.15-20.jpg

Happy First Day of School! Last week's Dressing Up with Darling post was all about that Back to School style. This week, we're showcasing a little dressier side to school style - after all, there are formals ahead this school year to start thinking about.

Olivia looks sophisticated (and so mature!) in this little red number. With a bold color like this, understated, simply accessories are a great way to anchor the look. The handmade pieces by one of our local artisans in the shop - Owl Ridge Farmstead - adds a bit of edge to the outfit.

Remember to shop at Darling for your all your school style needs - every day, game day, or formal night!

On Olivia: Forever 21 dress, $9 // Owl Ridge Farmstead black arrowhead necklace, $38, and copper feather bracelet, $70 // Marc Fisher black heels, $26

Dressing Up with Darling: Beaded with a Purpose

Linnea White

MG_4640.jpg

Our darling intern, Emma, is nearly 6 feet tall and all-the-way gorgeous. We were excited to style her for this week's Dressing Up with Darling post, featuring a basic summer outfit with fun details and accessorized to the max.

These beaded accessories are brand new at Darling, and have such a beautiful story behind them. Handmade in Uganda, the beaded necklaces, bracelets, sandals, earrings, and bags support the adoption of two little boys by a local couple here in Charlottesville. One hundred percent of each item purchased from this collection supports the adoption. Stay tuned for an upcoming pop up shop event featuring even more from this amazing couple in early August!
