Packing for the Beach

Call me crazy, but I like to plan out each outfit, jewelry, shoes and all before I go to the beach to ensure that I have exactly what I need. This past week I started working on this process and taking pictures of my complete outfits.

For a night out:
I chose this lovely Ark & Co. cut out dress (that we no longer have in the store) for a dress to wear out one night because it is formal enough for the beach and the cutouts will keep me cool in the hot weather. We have several other cutout dresses in stock that would make a perfect dress for the beach! I paired it with our flat braided sandals because I'm not trying to dress it up too much with heels. I choose a simple black earring and studded leather wrap bracelet. Lastly, I choose a small black leather purse with a gold chain because I don't want something bulky...I won't need to bring too much out at night with me and definitely don't want a heavy purse rubbing my freshly suntanned shoulders!

For daytime adventures:
If you haven't gotten one of these Free People lace tanks, you are missing out!! Whichever color seamless tank you layer underneath changes the entire look and color of the tank! We still have one in the color you see here and several in the ivory color for only $36! I choose to keep the color of this tank its original color by layering a nude seamless skinny strap tank underneath with patchwork Free People shorts. On the right side, I have a loose see-through We The Free top in case it is a little breezy and I want more coverage to layer over the tank. I paired this with my gladiator sandals to give it a more bohemian look.

What are you packing for your summer vacations this year??

Atlanta Market

Siobhan & I went to the Atlanta Apparel Market last week and found some great clothes that we think you are going to enjoy this fall-not to mention some great denim!

Here is a sneak preview of some things you can expect to see in the store from Aryn K. They had some great cocktail dresses!!

Ok, Tolani lovers, here are only a few styles that we are bringing in the store! We had the middle dress in grey and orange mosaic but so many of you asked for it in the blue and pink so we are getting this color combo too! This is only a few styles because we have to save some for you to be surprised! If you want to go ahead and pre-order any of the styles let us know!

We picked up a new European line called Sao Paulo. The luxurious material and great prices are something you can't find anywhere else! Great for pageant causal wear, homecoming court and other festivities coming up this fall. (This is just a sneak peak...we also have a few great Clemson gameday pieces!)

Tuck It IN or OUT

You can purchase this top above on our website, just click here.

Kim is wearing a gauzy 3/4 sleeve white shirt half tucked in and half tucked out of a pair of rolled up distressed jeans in a light colored denim. The sleeve length is flattering and the two pockets up the style factor. She is going for the casual look.

Punch It Up With Pink

Pink isn't a color I typically wear because I associate it with "girly girl" & have slowly stopped buying anything pink over the years. I am SO wrong! I've noticed a lot of our customers love the color pink in all different shades. I found so many cool pink clothes & accessories that I think you would enjoy spicing up your outfit because they are unique and stunning! I think I'm going to have to try a few of these out for myself!
