Dressing Up with Darling: Live Free

Linnea White

Live Free. This Free People dress came in last week and became instant outfit inspiration. The boho lace dress pairs perfectly with our newest local artisan collaboration - Owl Ridge Farmstead. Their bohemian pieces - sliced antler studs, leather wrap hair combs, and tiered horn necklaces, just to name a few - capture the free spirit of this dress. Adding these amazing cowboy boots made this outfit ready for frolicking, twirling, and living freely.

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!

Dressing Up with Darling: Giving Back is the New Black

Linnea White

ssekobagcloseup_mt.jpg

Sure, this post may look like a LBD post. But look closer. This week, we're featuring an awesome new product in the store from Sseko Designs - their beautiful, handmade leather bucket bag. Handcrafted in Ethiopia, this is not only a classic bag, but buying it also directly supports women in Ethiopia.

To showcase the bag, I styled it with a simple black knit dress, a pair of killer booties, a pair of our new sunnies, and simple, eye-catching jewelry. But a leather tote can be worn with many styles and in many ways (which you'll see tomorrow on the blog in our tips and tricks post). Buy this gem of a bag at the shop!

Dressing Up with Darling: Rainy Day Play

Linnea White

What makes us happy when skies are grey? An adorable outfit! Especially one as color coordinated and chic as this one. Who says you can't dress cute on a rainy day? Certainly not us! Practical wedges for dainty frolics and pops of color make any grey day bright.

We love this Maeve dress from Anthropologie, especially that little detail of red buttons down the back. Paired with these fun wedges, a bright bag, a stunning necklace by local artisans Birds of Paradise, and, of course, a red lip, this outfit is meant to take on a gloomy day. Just try to not smile when wearing such a playful outfit! No sunshine in the sky? Wear it!
