Power to the Pink Suit

POWER. SUIT. We know them. We love them. Some of our favorite looks involve incredible tailoring. And this look is by no means an exception. In fact, this pink suit from Current Air has an energy all on its own. Carrie really embodied that badass, feminine energy that this suit sets the stage for. And we get it. Menswear, while being incredibly on trend, can be a bit of an intimidating fashion leap for some. And then when you factor in a head-to-toe bright pink, some may hesitate. And, our hope is that you will take a little risk and let your inner boss shine loud (and assertive!) and proud. Perhaps that means just getting a tailored blazer as a start. Or maybe that means taking these pin-stripe pants into the dressing room, doing a quiet dance alone, and then coming out to have a look in the big shop mirror. Whatever that means, we hope you will tap into your inner freakin’ bad ass, because she is in there, and we love her!

A Royal Flush

Strolling around the Botanical Gardens, we arrived at this bridge and knew it would be the perfect spot for this look. The pinkish-purple flowers framing Carrie in the drawstring top from Current Air is quite the match! Our favorite part is the sage green piped detail around the collar and shoulders on this top. Its subtle but adds so much! This look feels very sophisticated and the detail really helps it stand out and elevate it. These tiered pants pair nicely with the top, adding shape and opulence to this overall effortless look. We see this look as a happy balance between casual and a special occasion look. If dressing for an event tends to bring anxiety, this look is a great way to remain comfortable and casual while still having a touch of formal.

Beyond the Bell Curve

This sweatshirt, friends. THIS. SWEATSHIRT. I can’t recall a time that a black sweatshirt triggered such feelings of joy and intrigue than when I borrowed (did not steal) my sister’s black NKOTB sweatshirt from her drawer. This bell-sleeved, cropped sweatshirt from Levi’s is about a hundred times softer and must less previously owned (as in, not at all) than my sister’s sweatshirt. It conjures up effortless magic! We kept this look overall in a neutral & monochromatic pallet to help fully embody the magic elements of the sweatshirt. My heart actually skipped a beat as I imagined styling this piece under a pair of overalls and sneakers, so let me just take a deep breath here. The midi-length skirt pairs sweetly with this stripped mules from Intentionally Blank. If a mule is a shape that you love (and we’re betting you do!) be sure to give this new shape a try. It has a round toe and doesn’t come up as high on the sides as most mules, giving an overall softer look. It’s got the tiniest heal which is perfect for any event. So whether you’re “hangin’ tough” (had to bring the NKOTB reference back around) or laying low, we love everything about this look for you.

Classic Collection

Yes, friends, it may be the time where it actually starts FEELING like Fall here in beautiful Asheville, NC! We are thrilled. Dressing for cooler weather is a time to play with layers, colors, and textures. In the warmer months, sometimes less is more and staying sweat-free trumps style choices 9 times out of 10. But in Fall/Winter, it’s really time to play! While we aren’t technically in winter-coat weather yet, it’s definitely time to start planning for it — and a great place to start could be color and proportions. In this look, we have a very neutral/pastel pallet. You wouldn’t expect to see too much lilac in the Fall; a season dominated by jewel-tones, mustards, and dark tones. But we love it year ’round! These light pieces are perfect on their own and also lend themselves to layering up as it gets colder. We chose to add some pattern and interest in these striped, block heels. This is an elegant, comfortable look that will seamlessly bring you from season to season.

Oui, Oui!

With the first day of Fall just a few days ago, it’s time now to start considering what sweaters you already have in your wardrobe and what new trends and staples you’re wanting to add this season. This “OUI” sweater is the perfect blend of a cool-weather slogan tee and a 50s letterman style sweater. It has a vintage feel with a more modern and trend-driven color pallet. We decided to pair this with white skinny jeans to help the texture and color of the knit really stand out. Plus, that whole “don’t wear white after Labor Day” rule is for the birds! Fashion rules, as you know, are meant to be broken, friends!
