Unapologetic

Monochromatic. You may hear this word thrown around a lot when talking about an all-black outfit, or an all-neutrals look. We are here to show you the monochromatic looks don’t need to stop at neutrals! Whatever shade you are really digging this Winter can be translated into an amazing monochromatic look. To achieve this, we chose the purple/cool-toned-family and utilized different shades of purple to create a cohesive look. With the color-tone of your outfit consistent, feel free to play with textures and fabrics to add interest and elevation to your look. We hope you feel inspired to rock your favorite shade from head to toe!

Let’s Hear it for the Lumbersexual (and Sendra Boots too!)

You must have noticed that the number of flannel shirts and work boots worn outside of lumber camps has been on a steady rise.

To A Tee-Shirt A Minx pops into a cafe. She settles into a cozy corner with her Mocha and unfolds the crossword puzzle that she has been saving. Suddenly she realizes that Paul Bunyan has just walked through the door. But, no! It can’t be the real Paul Bunyan for everything that he is wearing: work boots, work jeans, flannel shirt, suspenders, knitted toboggan – all of it is clean and shiny and she notices that he has the softest of hands.

Then from across the coffee counter another Paul Bunyan look-alike has just come on shift. He puts an apron on over his flannel shirt and waves at a table across the cafe where three people are seated: all wearing flannel shirts and work boots!

This is not bring your Blue Ox Babe to work day. No, what this Minx is experiencing is a fashion trend that has spanned gender, sexual orientation and now several decades. A fashion trend known lovingly as the Lumber Sexual look.

2015 Fashion Trends: Making Them Your Own

Now, how can a Minx make this historical look her own? There are a variety of options whenever one is customizing a look. We recommend having fun!

Minx-blog-1-28-15-fb-12

Here we have incorporated the iconic oversized red and black plaid in the form of this oversized flannel shirt which we have styled as a duster. The shirt is worn open to frame the rest of the look, which is much edgier and darker, in a warm and playful glow.

Adding a Little Rock-n-Roll to Your Spring Outfits

The tight coated level 99 jeans almost look like leather. The coated denim has a really sexy shine to them which is great for nighttime and elevates the plaid to a rocker chic. Imagine Little Red Riding Hood all grown up and out to shoot some pool with the boys before their gig at the new rock venue!

Key Pieces Your Wardrobe Needs for Spring: Sendra Boots

Instead of work boots we chose these amazing booties by Sendra. These boots are incredibly versatile. They can be dressed up for a nice dinner out, just as easily as they can be worn to the office, or to see your favorite band.

Handmade Marsa Boots by  Sendra

Handmade Marsa Boots by Sendra

Sendra is a boot company that has made stunning, handmade boots for over a hundred years. The company began making cowboy and riding boots, and those beautiful lines are present to this day.

Some shoes have an innate vibrancy within them. They seem to be illuminated from within the very grain of the leather: these boots practically hum with that magical glow!

Final Touch for Spring Clothes

To finish off our look we added Verdier Jewelry’s perfectly edgy swarovski crystal skull pendant and paired the jeans with  a Final Touch t-shirt. This t-shirt is soft, cut just right, and really is the final touch to any outfit. Available online in four colors, this tee is a crowd favorite! Need more proof?

Honky Tonk Merry-Go-Round

Level 99 Relaxed Overall Shorts

Here in North Carolina, nothing evokes the feel of summer like an afternoon spent at the local barbecue joint. With a cold drink in hand and our favorite honky tonk on blast, we will happily escape the summer sun and spend the day catching up with our southern roots.

But, of course, we always dress the part.  So, we are totally tickled to see the resurgence of one of our favorite looks from the past- overalls!

How darling are these denim overall shorts from Level 99?  With their authentic vintage details and updated modern fit, these are just the thing to live in all summer long!

Pair these with a crop top and a pair of Keds for an afternoon adventure, or pop on your favorite high heel booties to take this look to town!
