Big Wheels

Folks, we are BACK! And it is quite possibly our favorite time of year: Fall! Okay, maybe our favorite time is holiday. Or maybe Springtime. Okay, we can’t decide. But we are smack dab in the middle of Fall transition and we are LOVING it. We are starting to shake out our sweaters from the backs of our closets and they feel like the warm, familiar hug of a good friend you haven’t seen in awhile. It’s glorious. But let’s face it, 60 degree mornings turn into 85 degree afternoons and that makes wearing cable knits and wool sweaters out of the question. So, for now, don’t pack away your shirt dresses just yet! Just be sure to layer up and you’ll be able to change your look according to the weather. Florals are certainly not just a spring/summertime staple, they can be worn well into the wintery season. Consider a darker floral or this beautiful mustard shade. Add your favorite light duster or denim jacket and you’re prepared for whatever the weather may bring!

Layering with RD Style

Rd Style and Baggu Although fall is officially upon us, we are not quite ready to pack away our sunny summer staples. Looking for an easy way to extend the life of your warm weather gear? Get to layering.

A simple cream sweater can be the perfect way to take that denim shift from summer to fall- leaving you the option of colder mornings and warmer afternoons without breaking your stride. 

RD Style and BagguWe’re in love with this cream cable knit sweater from Canadian based RD Style.  WIth it’s classic details and perfect hi-lo, it pairs perfectly with nearly everything in our closet.

But our affection doesn’t stop there. Every RD Style piece is beautifully constructed with interesting details and a lot of heart. With styles that range from unusual and edgy to classically chic, RD Style has something for everyone.

layer as you please

Summer in the South:  it’s hot all day and cold in the grocery store.  You can never have too many pieces to put on, keep in your bag and layer as you please.  Start with a cool basic tee and slather on the fixin’s.  A neutral pallet makes it easy to add fresh pops of colorful accessories.
