Dressing Up with Darling: Transitions

Linnea White


I'm so excited to officially welcome the Dressing Up series on the Darling blog! Over a year and a half ago, in October 2013, the Dressing Up series came to life. It started as a small collaboration with Elizabeth Steel, former owner of Darling, and editor of the blog Cville Niche, Linnea White. Over the past year, it grew into a collaboration with five local boutiques!

This feature ushers in a new chapter for the Dressing Up series, and for yours truly. As one of the new co-owners of Darling, I am transitioning my fashion blogging from Cville Niche over to the Darling Blog. I couldn’t have imagined back in 2013 where my passion for playing dress up would be headed, or how much I would grow to love fashion blogging. So here we are in 2015 with a new fashion adventure!

Transitions and New Beginnings

In the spirit of transitions and new beginnings - from Winter to Spring, from one blog to another - I styled a fun, spirited outfit, complete with boots made for romping around and playful accessories. And since The Lone Bellow is coming into town Saturday night, I naturally channeled band member Kaneen's flawless boho style and frolicked over to The Jefferson for our backdrop.

From the Frye boots to the lace skirt, the gemstone necklace or beaded bracelet, find all of these great items at Darling Boutique! The jewelry featured in this outfit is brand new jewelry - the shipment came in the same day as the shoot, and we were so excited to be able to feature the new items.

So stop by and shop the new and consigned items in the store to get your Spring style blossoming!

Favorite item from Darling?

If I had to pick just one, I'd probably say the Michael Kors gold watch I snagged on Facebook the minute a picture went live. It was a hot item, and getting my dream watch practically new was a BIG deal. Now I can tell time! (Obviously, something I couldn't do without the watch.)

I've been a consigner and avid shopper at Darling since 2013. It's surreal to now be on the other side! But I'm so blessed with this opportunity, and can't wait to see where Megan and I take this well-loved community.

Shopping weakness?

Dresses. I will never think I have enough dresses. Dressed up with heels or dressed down with Converses, layered and worn from season to season, dresses are most definitely my weakness.

Name one go-to clothing item or accessory.

My J. Crew tan leather booties. I can't think of an outfit I haven't tried to wear them with and succeeded. They're comfy, cute, and super versatile. An investment I'm happy I made.

Stripes or polka dots?

Both! Maybe even together! I'm a big fan of pattern play, color combinations, and feminine shapes when it comes to fashion.


Fashion is an expression of your heart.

Playing dress up and experimenting with different styles is all a part of how you learn to express yourself and develop a personal style. Take the time each morning to pray and reflect on your blessings, to give thanks, to look in the mirror and see yourself how God sees you. When you are restored from the inside out, your true beauty will shine through in everything you do, and in everything you wear.

If I gave you $10 to buy yourself a treat in Cville, how would you spend it?

I'd grab a dirty chai latte AND a waffle with Nutella at Milli Joe. All the things I love wrapped up in one pretty package - coffee, chocolate, and carbs. [Side note: I blame Megan for getting me hooked on dirty chai lattes, and I blame my sister for getting be hooked on Nutella after her time in Florence (back in 2000, guys, before it was even cool in the states). ]

Song(s) Currently On Repeat?

I have a few songs I've been drawn to the past months, including "Multiplied," by Needtobreathe, "Diamonds," by Johnnyswim, "No Longer Slaves," by Bethel Music, and anything off the new Lone Bellow album.

Currently Watching: TV/Netflix/Hulu. Go.

OBSESSED with Jane the Virgin right now. Not at all ashamed of that. It's a great show. Heartbroken that Parenthood ended. HEARTBROKEN. I binge watch Netflix like it's my part time job. Currently watching Gilmore Girls, House of Cards, and any period piece TV show or movie I can find (the English major in me can't help it). Anticipation is high for the return of Orange is the New Black.

You won a ticket to anywhere in the world. Where are you going and why?

Sweden. It's been my dream to travel to a country where my ancestors lived, to connect with my roots and see the world. I've never been across the Atlantic! It'd also be pretty nice to be in a country where people know how to pronounce my name (Linnea is a Swedish name). Maybe I'll even find the Swedish wild flower I'm named after! Dreams, ya'll.
