Weekend Uniform

Not gonna lie, on the weekends we’re pretty bad about getting up and at ’em. We often run around like a couple of chickens with our heads cut off during the week, so our weekends are our time to enjoy our house, cook together, and relax. However, one thing we noticed that helps get our day started is getting up and getting dressed right away. This usually motivates us to get the day started, whether it be running to the grocery store or just feeling ready if we decide to catch a movie or join friends for lunch. READ MORE

Eyelet Details

I’m sucker for anything with lace or eyelet detailing so when I saw this blouse from J.Crew, I thought it would be perfect for our trip to SF. I layered it with a classic trench for a day at the market, with some bold accessories.

5 Favorite Places to Buy Eyeglasses Online

I was one of those kids who had braces and got glasses at the same time, which was during my last year in middle school. Let’s just say I didn’t feel super stylish walking into high school, which now looking back on was pretty silly. Childhood insecurities. I remember harping over it, like most adolescents do leading up to the first day of school. Just to add to it all, in the midst of my glasses/braces fit, a family member so kindly reminded me “guys don’t make passes at girls who wear glasses.” They all got a good chuckle out of it, while I acted dramatic about the whole thing, leaning up against our very Brady Bunch-esque orange countertops in the kitchen. Well, I got over it pretty quickly and learned that whole misquote of Dorothy Parker, was ridiculous.

Now, I wear my glasses proudly and love how they also act as accessory to any outfit. Here are my go-to places for buying glasses online: READ MORE

Day to Night Denim

Easy Everyday Outfits for Men
We’re always talking about keeping it simple and classic around here.  Those are two guidelines we try to think of when adding pieces to our small, historic closets.  We don’t have a ton of storage, so we are very mindful with what we bring in.  For menswear, Mr. Porter is my go-to.  They carry everything from grooming to formalwear and everything in between.  Their online space is beautifully curated and we love reading their editorial pieces for inspiration.  We recently partnered together to add a few pieces of menswear for our trip to San Francisco.

July Book Round-Up with Audible

Happy Wednesday! We’re back with another monthly book round up with Audible. Around this time of year I’m almost always brought back to the required summer reading lists we had as kids in school. From what I hear they are not too prevalent nowadays, but we’d have a few books to pick from and I’d head to the bookstore with my mom and sisters. I can remember walking into the cool air conditioned store and the kids’ story corners adorned with the most brightly colored books. I always was excited, even if the required books wouldn’t have been my first pick. I was the type of kid who loved new school supplies and even cried when I had to stay home from school because I was sick, (I’m talking grade school here) but that could be a story for a whole other post. Ha! Summer reading brings back memories of hanging by the town pool with my family, eating sandwiches and snacks we packed that morning before leaving the house, and laying under the umbrella with a mystery story or suspenseful book of some sort.

Every now and then I get sucked back into my obsession with the sixties. My old dorm room was plastered with photos of The Beatles…particularly George Harrison and Pattie Boyd, Paul McCartney and Jane Asher. And of course, there were my favorite black and white images of Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsberg. The straighter hair, thick fringes, and mini skirts always seemed so fun and care free to me. Palm Springs oozes with that same style and spirit. Everytime we visit I can’t help but think about how it was a hideaway for movie stars “back in the day” and what their summer style was like.

My Growing Obsession with Culottes

Spring and Summer Fashion - New Darlings Style Blog - 1 Pair of Pants 3 WaysCulottes are definitely not the new kid on the block, but for some reason I can’t get enough of them lately. Maybe it’s because they’re so versatile or maybe it’s because they’re the perfect alternative for when you don’t want to wear shorts in the summer (I’m not the biggest fan of shorts — anyone else with me?), plus they’re airy too. Either way, I’ve been mixing and matching them with everything these days. Last week we hosted a happy hour with some friends at North Italia here in town. Here’s a look at what I wore… READ MORE
