Who Run The World

Sometimes you just toss on a mini skirt, some sparkle boots, and show the world what a bad ass chick you are! The demure, modest look of your typical LBD is nice but why not mix it up a bit for a night out? This mini moto skirt from Loveriche paired with this pin-up inspired top from Voodoo Vixen is the perfect combo for adding a bit of edge to the usual all-black look. We loved pairing this daring combo with our Levis Sherpa Jacket to add another nod to vintage fashion and some additional texture and color. This look is sure to turn heads and you’ll feel unstoppable in it!

Rockstar 101

The changing leaves, the hot cocoa, the holidays, the COATED DENIM – all things we look forward to in the cooler seasons. Coated denim is a really nice way to merge the comfort of your favorite pair of jeans with the interest and edginess of a shiny, leather-like, coating. These are just as effortless to style as jeans but instantly elevate your look. Here, we have styled a pair of Paige coated denim with some strappy heels from Chelsea Crew, but these pants could easily be paired with some booties or knee-high boots and transition easily into colder months. And this dark purple/wine color is an obsession of ours this season. Perhaps its the new millennial pink?

Think that all your light-toned florals are banished to the back of the closet now that Fall is here? Think again! The key to rocking your pastel patterns is to find them on fabrics that will keep you warm, are able to be layered, or that have some textural interest. All of these things you will find in this By Timo mini dress. The high neck and long sleeves make this dress completely Autumn appropriate without drowning you out in a sea of black and neutral-tones (not that we don’t LOVE neutrals, because whoah, we love ’em!) If bright colors are your thing – let that colorful flag fly all year ’round! These velvet Mary Janes from Chelsea Crew tie this look all together with the jewel-like velvet material – and how good would these shoes look over some black tights?!

Swing, Swing

We love it when an outfit can be striking and also carry you through many different activities of the day seamlessly. This sweet, floral crop top from Sadie + Sage paired with these high-waisted shorts can effortlessly take you from brunch in the morning, to running errands during the afternoon – all with a little help of a shoe and outerwear change. This crocheted kimono from Echo is a lovely, subtle statement that adds a touch of romance to your look. Feel free to wear it open as a duster, or even tied around for a great swimsuit coverup. For your afternoon activities, we switched out the kimono for a great cropped moto-jacket and some trusty sneakers. And just like that, you’re ready to hit the ground running without compromising your look.

Corners

We’ve already covered in past posts our love affair with wearing white for summer. And this dress from English Factory is no exception. Today we really encourage you to take staples and trends that you know you love and suit you, and push the envelope just that much further. If you know you love a tunic shape on your body, pick up a great tunic with a cold-shoulder detail. Or perhaps you live in button-downs, find one with some leather paneling in the back or some lace elements. That’s what we love about English Factory – they take an approachable piece like a white dress and add elements to create an edgy, daring look. The tiered ruffles on the bottom on this dress immediately transport you to somewhere dreamy! And the tiny floral details are a nice take on a pattern that can sometimes be too busy or over-saturating. So, before summer ends, find your staple piece and then step it up a notch into somewhere a little more daring and unexpected. (Maybe that means less is more!) Whatever rings true for YOU. It’s a little scary at first, but the Minxies have got your back!

Have A Seat

If you’ve been with us awhile, then the genius that is Johnny Was designs will come as no surprise to you. Embroidery, being one of the biggest trends this season, is one of the most defining features of a Johnny Was garment and they have been in the game for awhile! These special pieces speak to that vintage, well-loved feel with the detail and dedication of a hand-stitched embroidery, bringing life and story to each piece. We strongly suggest investing in Johnny Was that speaks to you – its true wearable art and translates to any event. Understated and yet eye-catching, this tunic dress from Johnny Was needs no introduction and is not quickly forgotten.

Sprout

With many activities becoming lake-side and ending with a quick ride down the French Broad River, its important to consider how easily your look can go from indoors to outdoors without factoring in a complete outfit change. Perhaps that means finding the perfect summer sandal that is not only eye catching but also incredibly comfortable and versatile. We have definitely found that in our Pons sandals! Made by hand in Spain since 1945, these ethically-minded sandals are created out of recycled materials and all-natural leather. We encourage you to learn more about the history of these sandals on their website and come try a pair on for yourself! Toss on your go-to summer dress or cover-up and soak up as much summer sun as possible.
