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?

Autumnal Hues: Falling for Oxblood

Linnea White

DSCF3117_cropped.jpg

Happy November, darlings! It's a new month, and Autumn is upon us. And that means the season of rich Autumnal hues and cozy Fall layers is also upon us - praise! Burgundy, bordeaux, black currant - it's peek season for rich reds and deep plums. Think oxblood, that rich purple/red hue. This universally flattering palette is easily mixed and matched for a head-to-toe look, or blended with other warm Fall hues, like rust (Potter's Clay), mustard (Spicy Mustard), and blush pinks (Dusty Cedar).

Darling shop gal, Meredyth, is styled in a Maria D coat that brings out the auburn hues in her hair, and plays with the oxblood tones of her lace top. Topped with locally made accessories and the perfect lace up Born booties, this outfit is ready for every Fall adventure.

Darling Celebration: The Blog is Back!

Linnea White

After a few months away, the blog is back! And that's something worth celebrating. Two months ago, I became the sole owner of Darling Boutique, and it's been a crazy ride these last few weeks. I'm honored to be a lady boss on 1st Street, and I couldn't help but twirl with joy on 1st Street in this party number. I'm also thrilled to be working with local photographer, Tristan Williams, to produce new darling style inspiration, bring new faces to the blog, and celebrate this altogether beautiful life. Be you, darlings. The you God created you to be. Live each day close to your Creator, who created you to create. Never lose your wonder. Live abundantly, live wisely, live boldly, live creatively. And that includes your wardrobe! Now let's get to dressing up with Darling!

xo, Linnea

Back in Black

I felt like celebrating the relaunch of the blog, and this Anthropologie fringe top and Calypso St. Barth silk maxi skirt brought the party - with a little flare. Fringe is all the rage this season, and this fringe top was made for twirling and all the Fall fetes. From jeans and boots to a skirt and heels, this top is versatile and, most importantly, fun. Add an on-trend grey nail polish and a red lip, both locally made by Kitsune's Closet, and this outfit is made for any Fall occasion - like being a shop girl, all day, every day.
