Darling Denim

Darling Denim

If there is one fabric that anyone can pull off at any time of the year, it's denim. This fabric has withheld the test of time! Every season, a new varient of this fabric is released or sometimes the same thing stays in style for years. In the world of denim, these are what's trendy now:

Vests

($34)

Vests are here, and we are SO ready for them! Wearing a denim vest with some jeans is a much better way to wear denim on denim than Britney and Justin wore it circa 2001. Sorry but not sorry, Britney and Justin. That was a bad choice and you all know it. Anyway, this updated combo is defintely on trend and leaves room to add a statement necklace or other jewlery piece. 

Tops

Chambray Summer Pom Pom Shoulder Top- Denim ($26)

Let's see if we can spot the trends on this top. 

1. Denim (obviously, amazing)

2. Off the shoulder (OMG! Our favorite)

3. Tassels/ Fringe (LOVE!!)

So basically what we're saying is, this top is great and a staple piece for your wardrobe. It checks off THREE style boxes! We're obsessed. 

Bottoms

Denim Stripe Ruffle Shorts ($34)

 All we can say about these shorts are- YES. Yes to denim, yes to the fit, yes to the ruffles. We love them so much we would wear them everyday if we could. 

Check us out in store or online for updates on the denim trend. We'll also keep you updated on our social media, so follow us on there too!

 Maggy Tassel Off Shoulder Top- Moss and White ($48)

Tassles and off the shoulder? How much better could this get! This top is so cute for a casual day with friends or family. The black tassels add a pinch of playfulness while still keeping it sophisticated. It's perfect in our book. 

Bell Sleeve Embroidery Tassel Top ($58)

Another example of playful but sophisticated tassel-ing. This top brings out a good mix of boho-girly style. We could see wearing this top to somewhere light and breezy. Maybe use it as an excuse for a beach trip?

Sweet Like Ice Cream

Sweet Like Ice Cream

I don't know about you guys, but we've noticed a sweet trend. Somehow pastels have bridged the gap between spring and summer trends. That's right, pastels are in for summer 2017. Another trend is minimalism. We know, we know, de-cessorizing is hard. But as they say, beauty is pain, emotional pain too. It's not all bad though! Here are some ideas to make your wardrobe as sweet as ice cream this summer.

Lace Peplum Top ($34)

Okay, how cute is this mint top? Pairing it with a neutral jean is the perfect way to achieve maximum minimalism . 

Pretty Penelia Dress ($118)

This color is a-maz-ing. Why haven't we swooned over this sky blue before? This dress also flaunts a light and breezy fabric that is ideal for a hot and sticky day. You know by now how much we love our off the shoulder looks. One word to sum up this dress? Everything.

Ruffle Tshirt Dress- Peach ($34)

Did somebody say peach ice cream? Yum! Feel absolutely peachy keen in this tshirt dress. It is super comfortable for any body shape. 

Remember to keep cool this summer!

Until next time,

Wedding Guests Dressed to Impress

Wedding Guests Dressed to Impress

It's wedding season! June and July are notoriously packed with what can seem like an endless stream of weddings. If you need some help or just some inspiration to get through the month of July, look no further. Here are three looks we love for weddings. 

Look One

Dark Coral Lace Dress ($48)

Lace is in this wedding season! This super comfortable dress makes the perfect feminine statement... it's also good to twirl around in. We can confirm feeling like a princess for a night can never disappoint. Fun jewlery and nude shoes complete the look. 
  Beaded Teardrop Necklace ($18)

 The Betty Heel ($30.95)

Look Two

Sweet Peachy Summertime Dress ($48)

Aren't you obsessed with this off the shoulder look? One of our favorite fashion rules is less is more. Go for a classic look with a punch of summer color. Accessories are defintely optional for this look. Like our girl Coco said, 

Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.

Look Three

Zinnia Off Shoulder Midi Dress ($128)

Okay, okay, we admit we're obsessed with off the shoulder tops and dresses. But come on! Look how cute. This dress is good for a chillier summer night because it's light weight, but has more coverage. Toss on some simple flats or heels and BAM, you're fabulous. 

That's all for now. Go rock that dancefloor!

 

 Until next time,

Jet Set: Italy

Jet Set: Italy

"La dolce vida."

These three words sum up Italy very nicely. Italy's sweet life of fashion, beautiful vineyards, and hospitable locals make the country spectacular. If you're planning on taking a trip over the pond to visit this place or just wine connoisseurs who dream of it, we have some tips that will definitely make your trip wonderful.

1.  Wear comfortable shoes!

A lot of old Italian streets haven't been paved in... well ever. Most streets are still cobblestone, so make sure you dress accordingly! 

                                      
Amanda Summer Slip-on Sneaks ($28) Abby White & Gold Sandals ($20) 

We recommend wearing something flat for old cities. The sneakers also make a good option for rainy days! But, both of these simple flats make great travel companions to accompany colorful outfits. 

2. Italy summer is hot, like really hot

Guys, we're not kidding. Italian cities can reach up to 95º on summer days and in the north it's humid too. So, don't expect to escape the Ohio River Valley humidity over there. Pack your sunglasses and sunscreen and wear light fabrics to help ease the pain.

  Floral Ruffle Sleeve Shift Dress ($40)

This dress is a super light weight fabric, so it's perfect for Italian summers. If you don't like the navy option, there is also a light pink one too. This dress is also a shift dress and you know what that means... you can eat all the pasta you want because no one will be able to tell. 

3. Drink a lot of wine

 You know we're always ready for some good wine. Especially Italian wine! Pack these wine essentials or just pretend you're in Italy already with these picks. 

First, read up on your wines with Kate Spade and Jancis Robinson.

($27.50) ($12.95)

Then, pack the supplies.

Save Water Drink Rose Glass ($16)
Drink Pink Glass ($16)

Check out these and more on our website or in the store!

Good luck with all your Italy travels!

Ciao!

Until next time,

Jet Set: London

Jet Set: London

We have a very important question for you, dolls: are you ready to go international? Follow us to the city of the royals and history, London. London fashion pretty much follows their grey and rainy skies. It's unpredicable, so remember even when the forecast tells you it will be sunny all week, be prepared for rain anyway. 
Another tip: if it looks sunny outside, be bold! Bring out the summer dresses, hats, and sunglasses. 

 Vanessa Summer Dress ($44)

This Vanessa Dress is exactly what we're talking about! It's nice and cool for a summer day and flattering on any body shape. A simple cardigan would be the perfect thing to bring along with this dress in case the weather changes. You can find us wearing this dress to Buckingham palace to visit the Queen or to see Big Ben.  Another option might include a skirt and a top. These kinds of outfits are very easy to dress up or down for any occasion you may encounter. 

This baroque skirt will definitely fit the glamour of London. It reminds us of all the stained glass windows you could find in this historical city. Pair it with a simple top and a fun purse, and then you're ready to own London.  

Baroque Lace Skirt ($38)
Cassie Vneck Top ($32)

Jet Set: California

Jet Set: California

West coast here we come! We're ready for all things warm and sunny with practically no humidity. California has so many different cities and towns that are known for something unique. From cities to farms, surf to snow, mountains to lakes, and volcanoes to deserts, this state has so much to offer. 

The most popular Californian destinations include Los Angeles, San Francisco, Napa Valley and San Diego.

Los Angeles

Los Angeles Illustrated Art PrintRifle Paper Co: City Print- Los Angeles 

Los Angeles boasts scenic hiking trails, Hollywood, and near by Disneyland. What should you wear? Really anything. Californians aren't limited to one kind of style, they're pretty laid back. Denim and flip flops seem to be staple items among the community. 

The Nat Off Shoulder Midi Dress ($68)

We really love this casual denim dress. It checks off boxes of being cute, casual, and comfortable. The best part of this dress is that it's easy to pair with some flip flops or flats. Always bring a jacket, because when it gets dark, it also gets chilly.

 Napa Valley

Ahhh wine country. Can you say wine tasting? We can! Napa Valley is great because it is so different than big cities like Los Angeles. Napa Valley and Sanoma are known for their rolling hills, century old oak trees, and vineyards. Napa hosts 4.5 million visitors every year ready to experience the area. The vineyards are a perfect destination for honeymooners, girls weekends, and avid wine tasters. 

What to wear? During the summer, Napa Valley usually hits the 80s, so we reccommend some flowy dresses to compliment the rolling hills. 

Red Poppy Floral Maxi Dress ($58)

Maxis are the perfect wine tasting option. We love this Greecian style. The sleeves drape over your arms for an effortless romance. We love playing with pattens and colors that make the dress, but aren't too overwhelming. 

If you can't decide where to go in California, maybe look through this book, it seems pretty informative!

 All Aboard Children's Book- California ($14)
