Black and White: The Overalls Trend

Linnea White

It's everywhere this season - the overalls trend. Not everyone was as cool as me, struttin' around in their Oshkosh overalls back in 93', so in case you missed out on the overalls thing as a kid, don't worry - they're adult friendly now.

I have to admit - I love overalls. The right pair for the right person are for sure adorable. I scored a vintage Levi's pair last Fall at the shop that gave me LIFE, and I can't wait to wear them all Spring long. Sadly, this black vegan leather pair by Free People sold the day I put them on the floor, which just speaks to how hot this trend really is right now. (Don't worry, another pair of Levi's overalls came in this week, size 0, so all you skinny girls, get in here to snag 'em before they're gone.)

Another trend you'll see this season is the come back of a classic black and white ensemble. From color blocking to pattern play, I'm so excited to see this simple, chic look make a statement this season. For an LA/West Coast vibe, I paired these overalls with a relaxed white T-shirt (and my freaking amazing new Frye snakeskin booties) for an outfit that is all play, no work. Add a pair of oversized Lennon sunglasses and understated, crip accessories, all locally made, of course. Can't get enough of the amazing stacking rings by Thicket Jewelry at only $12 a pop, and her new bar studs, too.

What do you think of the overalls trend, darling? How would you rock it?

Platinum Hair: New Year, New Me

Linnea White

I've wanted to do this for a year. I've been baby-stepping my way towards it since June. I've been dreaming about going white, and I finally took the (first) step towards platinum hair last week in a daring Darling Makeover. Because #newyearnewme, or whatever.

And WOAH, is it different. I love it. I love how it has already begun to change my personal style choices, color choices, and makeup choices. I opted for a pastel hued look for this first reveal of the new color, playing with soft lavender and blue anchored by dark wash high-waisted jeans and simple lace up booties.

I'm not quite there yet. I still have some yellow tones in my hair I want OUT - solely cool hues, please. My white out hair inspiration has deep roots, a craving I must satiate (see this, this, this, this, this, this, and this - just for a start, because I'm obsessed). And I will not be stopped until I reach my white hair goals for that true Winter ice out. To be continued... the journey to white hair has begun!

Big smooches to my girl Sarah Hatch of At Last for being such a boss and always giving me the darling makeover I need. She's amazing, y'all. And I can't wait to be back in her chair again for more of this amazingness.

For tips on how to care for platinum hair, stay tuned! I'll be doing a round up of some great products out there for all the platinum babes. Blue shampoo is your best friend (but don't go overboard, like I did once - #whoops).

What do you think of the white/silver hair trend?
