Dressing Up with Darling: Live Free

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: Transitions

Linnea White

I'm so excited to officially welcome the Dressing Up series on the Darling blog! Over a year and a half ago, in October 2013, the Dressing Up series came to life. It started as a small collaboration with Elizabeth Steel, former owner of Darling, and editor of the blog Cville Niche, Linnea White. Over the past year, it grew into a collaboration with five local boutiques!

This feature ushers in a new chapter for the Dressing Up series, and for yours truly. As one of the new co-owners of Darling, I am transitioning my fashion blogging from Cville Niche over to the Darling Blog. I couldn’t have imagined back in 2013 where my passion for playing dress up would be headed, or how much I would grow to love fashion blogging. So here we are in 2015 with a new fashion adventure!

Transitions and New Beginnings

In the spirit of transitions and new beginnings - from Winter to Spring, from one blog to another - I styled a fun, spirited outfit, complete with boots made for romping around and playful accessories. And since The Lone Bellow is coming into town Saturday night, I naturally channeled band member Kaneen's flawless boho style and frolicked over to The Jefferson for our backdrop.

From the Frye boots to the lace skirt, the gemstone necklace or beaded bracelet, find all of these great items at Darling Boutique! The jewelry featured in this outfit is brand new jewelry - the shipment came in the same day as the shoot, and we were so excited to be able to feature the new items.

So stop by and shop the new and consigned items in the store to get your Spring style blossoming!
