Shop Girl Style: Pretty in Pink OOTD

Linnea White

So I should've posted this on National Pink Day a few Friday's ago, but I wasn't that with it, or that cool. However, this Shop Girl Style outfit deserves to be posted anyways, because you can have a Pretty in Pink OOTD any day.

Tristan came in to do a shoot one Saturday a few weeks back, and we just had to capture this #ootd. I love showing my #darlingfinds with my Shop Girl Style, and this was no different. Except it did include some recent non-darling finds - shocker, I know! I almost ALWAYS shop at my store, but everyone once in a while, I make an exception. And when I saw this pink top go on sale on Anthropologie's website, I snagged it. I don't wear pink often, and have never considered myself a pink girl, but pink is HOT this season, so hot it even got a new name - millennial pink. And so are ruffles. And this top has both. I'd call that a win.

Retro white sunglasses are in this Summer, too, and I searched for the right pair for my face shape. This pair from Urban Outfitters, the Edie Retro, were under $20 and are just perfect. They're my new fav for the Summer days ahead.

What are your favorite Summer trends right now, darlings? 

Spring Style Trends, Part 2: Gingham Get-ups

Linnea White

From off-the-shoulder tops and wide leg pants, to gingham get-ups and slide sandals, we're talking about Spring Style Trends on the blog, showcasing how you can rock the latest trends AND shop secondhand at the same time.

Gingham is back this Spring in a big way, and when this made in Korea gingham shirtdress came in to the shop, I knew it needed to be featured. Slides (and mules) are also trending this season, and these white slide sandals added a bit of chill to this otherwise buttoned up look.

And what's better than a pair of statement sunnies for finishing a head-to-toe look? These Twiggy-inspired sunnies are so over-the-top, they actually work. And looking like a bug is also super big this season, just FYI/ICYMI, so why the heck not?

I call this my Iris Apfel-inspired look, or my fly-on-the-wall look. Either way, it's effortlessly cool, and insanely comfy - a combo I can fully support. Especially for the weekend, and this outfit is owning all the weekend vibes, right down to the people watching and window lounging.

How are you rocking gingham this Spring, darling?

P.S. As I mentioned before, this is my new hair cut, and it's just so good. Who else feels like a fresh chop in the Springtime is the BEST?!
