Spring Style for Changing Seasons

Linnea White

MG_9912_cropped.jpg

Time. It's time for Spring to get here! Waiting. We're anxiously awaiting the changing of the seasons, and for warmer, brighter days ahead. We couldn't help but channel all of the whimsy and wonder of the changing seasons into this week's Dressing Up with Darling outfit. Spring style is all one part practical transitional layers and one part whimsical, playful patterns and colors. It's a joyous season of change and expectancy, and your style can (and should) reflect this spirit. We've talked about how to layer for transitional Spring weather, and we've talked about whimsical pattern play. So, why not get playful with our styled looks as we transition from Winter into Spring?!

We made our way over to The Clock Shop on Water Street for the perfect backdrop to our seasonal waiting game. It may have been in the upper 30s when we snapped these pictures (I spy goosebumps!), but our hearts were warmed by the spirit of Spring!

Customer Style: Darling Takes on Nashville

Linnea White

Photo-Feb-05-1-53-57-PM-e1455051590607.jpg

This weekend, shop owners Linnea and Megan went on a staff retreat in Nashville, with our gorgeous friend, consignor, and regular customer at the shop, Lindsay Wine. And when three darling gals go on a trip, of course they pack some of their favorite Darling finds, showcasing some customer style (or shop owner style).

With gorgeous weather and warm temperatures (for Winter), we left the big coats at home and opted for boots and easy pieces for exploring the city.

Darling Finds by Darling

Each gal wore a mix-match of Darling finds on the trip, each with a unique personal style and take on the Nashville scene!

Lindsay wore a Sweet Rain mustard zip jacket, the perfect layering piece for the weather and the necessary footwear for Nashville. She kept the base solid and let her gorgeous hair color and simple accessories do the talking.

Linnea brought many of her favorite #darlingfinds on the trip, including her Owl Ridge Farmstead bracelet, vintage Coach bag, and Frye harness boots. A lacey Forever 21 blouse also made the cut for the ideal whimsical base under a cozy Loft coatigan.

Megan wore a Loft plaid shirtdress and vintage Coach clutch, and threw on one of her favorite #darlingfinds to date for extra warmth - a Kate Spade leopard print jacket! Talk about taking on Music Row like a star!

We had so much fun on our retreat this weekend, filled with amazing inspiration from shops in this exciting city. We are refreshed and ready for an exciting 2nd year as the new owners of Darling Boutique!

Darlings in Dresses: How to Take on Dressember

Linnea White

Dressember4-e1449179896618.jpg

This month, Megan and I are wearing dresses for 31 days as part of the Dressember movement. We're honored (and really, really excited) to stand with women all over the world for this incredible cause. We love Dressember so much, we decided to show a little #dressember style by featuring outfits from our shop! See how we each styled dresses for Dressember - a month of dresses to raise support and awareness to reclaim freedom, dignity, and femininity for the victims of human trafficking. Join us by donating to the cause, or show us your own #darlingsindresses style on Instagram!

How to Dressember

On Linnea

For an every day, Winter look, Linnea styled this vibrant J. Crew wool shift dress (with pockets!!!) with navy tights and oxford heels - and a snazzy top knot - for a mod-inspired style. This dress can be worn dressed up (add some sparkle and heels) for the holidays, or dressed down with flats or boots and a cozy sweater or coat for colder weather. Not only is it classy and timeless, but it's comfortable - #winning.

On Megan

For a boho-inspired look, Megan rocked a Free People tunic dress and kept the accessories minimal - let the a dress like this one do the talking! This dress can easily be worn over tights or even jeans, with heels or boots. Throw an ankle-grazing coatigan over this tunic and a chunky knit scarf for a boho-chic wintry look.

Friendsgiving Style |Dressing Up with Darling

Linnea White

Friendsgiving - the autumnal celebration of harvest and all things delicious with your dearest friends. It's Thanksgiving with a casual, cozy spirit. When thinking about any feast, I always reach for comfort (no belts, no tight waistbands, it's feasting time). This Sienna Sky printed dress is perfect for Fall, from the color to all the layering possibilities. I paired it with the coziest vest (already sold!) and the warm cognac leather of these J. Crew boots. The raw crystal jewelry by Owl Ridge Farmstead complimented the look perfectly. And, of course, I had to feature some of the amazing new products coming soon to the shop by Kitsune's Closet! The rich Noir Red nail polish is a hot color this season, and the brand new lipstick color, Mulberry, brings a rich, dark plum color to the ensemble.

Get inspired for your upcoming Friendsgiving fête, and stop by the shop to shop the look (and so much more!).
