Flower Shop

The floral dress is such a classic, folks. It’s honestly hard to think of an occasion where a floral dress of some sort would be inappropriate. If you’re operating in the world under the impression that florals are always feminine and always formal, I can totally see why but there’s a way out of this restrictive narrative. Consider fabric, accessories, and color pallet when choosing your floral. While these particular looks are absolutely on the formal side: consider how they would read to you if they were paired with sneakers and a distressed denim jacket. Instantly more casual. If this pattern is still a bit bold or loud for you, consider finding more of a micro-floral pattern. No matter how you slice it, a floral dress is definitely a wardrobe staple and we are tickled to honor this piece today!

Jet Set

There’s just somethin’ about Summer that makes wanna hit the open road! Maybe it’s the clear skies and great weather that gets your mind wandering during your work day. Whether you’re a frequent flyer or a stay-cation expert, having that perfect go-to dress that suits any destination is a must have for this travel season. As you begin packing, we recommend bringing a piece that lends itself to layering (as weather can be unpredictable!), is a clean pallet to go with whatever accessories you can bring, is made of a fabric that doesn’t wrinkle easily or hold onto all of those interesting travel smells, and is a classic shape and silhouette. This dress from Adeline is such a nice option! The pleats and sleeve detail make it special enough for a trip out of town, but is comfortable and effortless so it lends itself perfectly to wherever you find your sense of curiosity taking you! Bon Voyage!

Sweater Weather

When you imagine winter-ware, and specifically sweaters, what sorts of words come to mind? Cuddly, yes. Oversized, perhaps. Knitted, yes of course. But there is so much more to these winter-weather staples! We are seeing sweaters in vastly different shapes, silhouettes, and styles. Cropped, leather accents, boat-neck, off the shoulder, tie-details. You name it and it’s probably on a sweater! Who says sweaters can’t be sexy, after all? Yes, they’re east to toss on and amazing to snuggle up in on a cold evening, but they can also be the star of your winter ensemble. Here we have a homage to old Hollywood, think: casual Marilyn Monroe with this off-the-shoulder black sweater from French Connection. Paired with dark, slimmed jeans, and a great, strappy heel, you are rocking a timeless look while also feeling comfortable for whatever the winter may bring. We hope you feel inspired to create a look with your sweaters as the main event rather than just another layering piece.

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?
