Spring Florals: Wearing Prints

Linnea White

The first day of Spring is right around the corner, and the shop is bursting with colorful frocks and Spring florals. Spring is my favorite season, from the fashion to the weather, it's a season of such blossoming joy. Spring blossoms make my heart sing, and when I get to wear those blossoms all day, I'm walking on sunshine.

This floral blouse from Loft became the centerpiece of a Spring florals look, paired perfectly with this high waisted midi skirt by ASOS. Crisp colors and bright hues for the season ahead.

To accessorize the look, I pulled a few pieces from our local artisans, including a new lipstick color coming to the shop soon by Kitsune's Closet.

This season, don't shy away from wearing prints or bold colors. Take a cue from nature when it comes to your wardrobe: Embrace the blossoms, the exuberant joy of the season, and reflect the beauty of the season!

VDay Outfit Inspiration: Vintage Darling

Looking for some VDay outfit inspiration? Look no further! The shop is filled with love day options for every gal and every style. Whether you'd rather keep it simple with a pop of red, make it edgy with some leather, or go full on romantic with vintage whimsy, Darling Boutique is your stop for all your Valentine's outfit needs. Not to mention the array of locally-made, red-hued lipsticks available at the shop!

Vintage VDay Darling

For a Valentine's inspired Dressing Up with Darling outfit, I gravitated towards this retro printed dress, full of whimsy and personality. I love that the little flower petals are shaped like hearts, giving a nod to the holiday without full on shouting it. The Nine West heels are the perfect pairing, with their vintage shape and lace up style. Add some simple cupid-esque jewelry by one of our amazing local artisans in the shop and a pair of vibrant pink tights, and this look is full on vintage darling for the holiday of love. Don't forget to apply your favorite red lipstick for an added touch of romance. We love this color made by Kerrie Pierce specially for our shop, thus "Darling Red."

Embrace the whimsy of the season, and let your personality shine.

High Fashion Fall | Dressing Up with Darling

Linnea White

MG_57851.jpg

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: Beaded with a Purpose

Linnea White

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!

Dressing Up with Darling: Summer Picnic Style

Linnea White

summerpicnic10.jpg

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!
