Festive for the 4th

Festive for the 4th

There are few things better than a long holiday weekend in summer.  The weather is warm and balmy, you get a day off of work and most likely there is a party to attend with good food, good drinks and better friends. 

We like to keep things casual yet festive for Independence Day, rather than going full on red, white and blue, focusing on a single pop of color with coordinated accessories.  Crop jeans in a floral hue and a shoulder baring, white top are the perfect combo for the warm holiday. A denim jacket and tonal scarf will keep you cozy for the fireworks, beach side bonfire or backyard fête.

AG "Robyn" jacket, Current/Elliott "Madeline" top, AG "Stiletto" crop jean, Eileen Fisher cotton scarf, Loren Stewart sterling silver ID bracelets & Vince Signature small leather camera bag.

We hope your 4th is filled with fun, food, friends, family and of course fireworks!

Spring Denim Essentials

Spring Denim Essentials

We've touched briefly on a few denim silhouettes for spring, we're talking about you crop flare, but we wanted to dive deeper into this season's trends.  We have the usual suspects for warmer weather - boyfriend jeans, shorts, major distressing and white denim everything - but there are a few more interesting and unexpected styles out there that we are super excited about.

You'll find released hems on just about every denim style you can think of, from jeans and shirts to dresses, it's a quick way to add some extra texture to your outfit and also a little edge.

The LDD (little denim dress) is another one we love.  It can be as simple as a chambray shirt dress all the way to a breezy yet tailored wrap dress or even a bold maxi dress.  These dresses will give you lot of mileage during the spring and summer months, moving easily from day to evening by simply changing your accessories.

A classic piece that's made a comeback, is the high waist mini skirt. We saw it in suede for winter and it's returned in denim with a raw hem for spring and summer.  Pair this piece with a fitted white tee and your favorite gladiator sandals for a classic summer ensemble.

From L to R: Closed "Starlet" jean, Current/Elliott trucker jacket with rolled sleeves, Closed wrap dress and released hem top & Current/Elliott "Naval" skirt.

The best part about jeans and denim, is the countless ways you can wear each piece.  Even with raw edges, distressing and holes, you can dress your pieces up for a fun night out or down for a weekend spent with your family.
