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.

It's Spring! And it's Earth Day! For this week's Dressing Up with Darling, we wanted to feature our new Sseko Designs Ribbon Sandals and embrace two things we love - brighter days and pattern play!

This Anthropologie top is embodies are aforementioned things we love! Whether thrown over a pair of jean shorts or accessorized like this boho chic outfit, the playful patterns beautifully complement those bright Spring days. And let's just take a moment to talk about this adorable Free People skirt. The convertible dress/skirt flows in the breeze with ease. And of course we had to feature our a pair of our new Sseko Designs Ribbon Sandals, available for purchase at Darling!

And now, a special Earth Day message from Sseko:

"Happy Earth Day! Did you know that wearing our ribbon sandals is not just a fashion statement, but also an eco-friendly decision? The average woman buys 1 pair of shoes a month (that's an average of 434 pairs in a lifetime!). While she has 20 pairs of shoes, she only wears 5! Our goal is to help you minimize that footprint--by creating beautiful shoes that won't go out of style! Simply swap out the ribbons or accessories if you need a change--these babies will last for years!"
