Fitness Friday: From Studio to Street

Linnea White

It's Fitness Friday, darlings! Just because you're heading to the gym (or from the gym) doesn't mean you can't look put together and stylish. Toss on a colorful jacket, like this lululemon tie-waist one, a crop top, striped sweater, or bold sports bra to make your trek. And even though you certainly can't do much but walk around in this sexy lululemon skirt, it still makes a great point A to point B piece for that sporty chic look. Activewear is a great solution for those weekend errands and hangs, from the farmer's market to brunch to a kiddie (or doggie) playdate, for the busy gal on the go. Don't let your sweat post-workout self stop you from a productive, stylish day. Did you know Darling carries workout apparel on consignment? Well, we do! And lululemon is a big seller. When this lululemon skirt came in, I knew we needed to get the first ever activewear outfit on the blog for Fitness Friday.

She's Got Legs: Chic Summer Shorts

Linnea White

Summer weather. Shorts required. It's time for those chic summer shorts, ya'll. These shorts are proof that shorts can be chic. The dolphin hem detail lends a chic yet casual feel, offering plenty of room to show off a little leg this season...

Cue the music, those cheesy rock ballads of Summer. She's got legs, she knows how to use them. So say the guys with long beards.

But anyways, can we talk about this top, please?! The tiny, tight knife pleats on this flowy Zara white top are crisp and airy for summer, giving it an easy, breezy and chic feel. Imagine this top paired with white denim for a white-washed Summer ensemble, ready for a picnic or a hot Summer night on the town. #swoon

Take the short cut (ha!) and shop all of our new Summer arrivals! From silk to cotton to linen, scallops to lace to cuffed, we have a wide selection of shorts in stock to get you Summer ready.

High Fashion Fall | Dressing Up with Darling

Linnea White

MG_57851.jpg

New York Fashion Week may have just ended, but we're definitely feeling a little high fashion this Fall. With the Garrett Street mural as our backdrop, we took this outfit to a new level of fashion. This outfit started with the Gary Graham silk skirt, a piece with the "rebel courage" and romantic edge the brand is known for. With a pair of sky high heels and a retro patterned blouse, this outfit screamed art. Add the gorgeous L.A.M.B. leather bag for added cool. Top knot not included.
