My Favorite ways to wear DENIM in the Summer!

Denim is a Staple Item in everyone’s closet….easy to transition into any season!    Denim isn’t just in jeans… It’s a great Fabric and in style in everything from jackets, dresses, skirts and shorts. Easy to pair with other  favorite pieces in your closet. I have a couple of my favorites and some denim tips to share.

Heres a few of my favorite pieces And a couple of my favorite way to wear denim in the Summer time…Everyone has their go to jeans, here’s mine!

I love Kut from the Kloth and its sister companies STS see through Soul and Edyson. I carry mostly these denim Brands in our shops for several reasons. Their Price point is awesome $59-99, the quality of denim is great, and they have a body style that fits every body type. Kut from the Kloth sizes 0-14 & Edyson 25-31 are a TRUE woman fit, StS is a junior fit 1-13. I love carry products I believe help make a woman feel great!

 

Tips

Buying Denim buy tight, it stretches with wear…

Washing denim doesn’t need to be washed every wear ( if it’s dirty wash them) The more you wash your jeans the more you break down the fibers and shorten their life. You can always spot-clean stains.

Slow down fading,  wash in cold water and inside out.

Avoid Shrinkage, Air dry it yield the least amount of change!

Best way to store jeans is folded in your closet.

Denim is ALWAY’S a smart buy it transition into every season! Just keep it a classic wash and fit!

SUMMER time TIPS

Wear Chambray or a Tencel Jean look for a light weight and easy to wear.

Wear a boyfriend fit Jean or short… They fit looser and can breathe easier.

Pair with Cotton tees or tanks that breathe and a cute Sandal to keep keep the rest of your body cooler!

Spring Outfits

 

Spring Outfits….

Just a little taste of what I have been wearing this Spring!

A normal Spring in Utah is A little Rain and in the 60’s and 70’s Mostly Sunny…. But this year It’s been A lot for Rain and Mostly 50’s and a little 60’s & 70’s with sun… Very little!  I am a born and raised California girl so I love Sun shinny days and our ” Seattle” weather in Utah is Killing me! So this Spring isn’t full of dresses and short’s of us…. It’s more like Jeans and a light sweater and more days with Hunter Boots then I would prefer😘

Spring….longer day’s, flowers blooming, green trees & Grass with Birds singing. For a lot of us this always means Spring Cleaning…. For me I have cleared out Closets, drawers, storage area’s… I love starting Spring & Summer with a FRESH closet. I can see what I HAVE and what I want to add to My wardrobe… Owning a clothing Boutique has its perks 😊 Most All my wardrobe come’s from Our shop!

This Spring I added in Some Fun New pieces, A fun little Birdie shirt ( that screams Spring to me), White Jeans, ( I LoVE White Jeans and have a couple pair’s) Olive Cargo shorts, striped dress ( can use as a duster come FALL), this Season’s MUST have strapped clog sandal, floral Tee ( you always need a little Floral for spring) and Concert tee a must Have for Concert season coming up…. I also added in some New Jewelry …Airplane Necklace for our Vacation😉 Some fun colorful earrings 7.99 on our website and in our shop. It’s My favorite shape ( see the yellow ones in the photo below) Light weight and easy to wear, I own almost every color.

Each outfit below is a mix of Old and New with budget friendly and some Not budget friendly pieces. Mixing up your patterns and playing with some color is fun for Spring. Wear what you love and try something New this Spring!

Hope a couple of My Spring Outfits inspire A Outfit for YOU!

Mother’s Day

A little peek into My Mother’s Day! The real Day not the Instagram or Facebook how people view your day… Day

Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day has a different meaning to everyone…..
Some like to share it with all the family….( mom’s, nana’s auntie’s etc)
Some like to be lazy and not get Out of their pj’s…
Some like to get all dressed up and go to Brunch….
Some just like to be remembered….

As for Me ,Mother’s Day I would love to do all of the above but of course that’s not possible!
We don’t live near our family, so it’s just the 4 of us! I never have big expectations for Mother’s Day as they never seem to be what I would picture in my head! ( 1 Mother’s Day I was electrocuted 😁) I am a Mother of boy’s and I try to teach them to be loving , caring and thoughtful…. They’re good boys… But Thinking of me isn’t always on the top of they’re list ( we’ve had long chats over this!) so being truly honest here…. I don’t have big expectations!
( nor do I think I need too, a what can I do for you today mom? Would be awesome)

This year is been a crazy couple of weeks and I just wanted a day in my Pj’s relaxing, a good breakfast

( would have loved a stack of something sweet😍 but not possible on Whole30) scrolling through Instagram and watching hallmark channel and HGTV!
My day started off the way I was hoping…. Except the 6 am enteral alarm clock!
Hubby Made a perfect whole30 breakfast, and we laid in bed watching Joel Olsteen and scrolling Instagram until my boys got up around 10…. No Happy Mother’s Day ( oh 1 kid was at sleep over so hubby ran and got him)
First thing out of my oldest Mouth is what are we doing today…. We’re not gonna just stay home and do nothing are we!!!! Still no Happy Mother’s Day
My Hubby and youngest came home with a card and flower ( which I know was purchase that morning) and we are doing something today right? I really should have said did you guys plan something but I didn’t….I went back to doing what I wanted to do which was lounging around!
Around 1 my hubby asked” what do you want to do?” I stated the above and said but our kids would love to do something!….. He said well it’s up to you!
So…. Because I am a MoM…. As most of us are, that put our kids wants before ours…. I said ok let’s go to Movies and dinner….not to see Mother’s Day as I would have picked but to see Captain America because of course I am a MOM of boys❤️
The movie was great and our Dinner at Twigs was awesome, we even squeezed in some shopping…my day didn’t go as planned but I spent it with The ones I love Most!
Let’s face it any time we get to spend the day with no phones and your boys attention is the Best gift you can get❤️
Most of us Mom’s don’t have have the perfect day or the perfect family but in each day I hope we can teach and learn lessons to be the best person we can be!
I hope your Mother’s Day turned out to be what you had planned or even better then the plans in your head❤️
Have a Beautiful week, D’Arcy

Fun fringe detail and pop of color to outfit!
Fun fringe detail and pop of color to outfit!  

Fringe has been HoT the last couple seasons…. I love a trendy piece that adds fun to a outfit! My tip being over 40  is wear the trend… But really only wear one trend at a time. Another tip is don’t spend a lot on a trendy piece these teal fringe heels were $39.99 at just Fab ( I think I got for $20 with a deal) great price wear a couple times and be done. Spending a lot on a trendy piece just isn’t smart! Spend it on a classic heel or great pair of Jeans… Or that great bag😘

Valentino…dreamy shoes

I have had these babies on my WISH list for a good year or so....
I have had these babies on my WISH list for a good year or so….

Life is SHORT… SO BUY the shoes!!!! This is such a great saying and I finally pulled the trigger… I am a firm believer in good shoes, quality and I love a label!

But…. When spending a lot of money I always suggest staying with a classic… While Valentino is always a classic… This studded shoe may not be the right choice!! But I just love it!!

I have just loved it for over a year…. Have been saving and thought if I still love this baby when I have saved my pennies I am going to pull the trigger…

Bang… I ordered these pretty babies!!!!

They may not be a classic with the studs but the basic shoe design is a classic and I will wear these with pride! Not to mention how many basic outfits they will make stunning outfits!!

Arm Candy… Bracelet fun!

Loving Arm candy!  Pile it on!

A huge trend is piling on the bracelets….aka Arm Candy!

I love this trend, so fun to pile them on and play with patterned, metals and colors.

Great time to pull out all your Old jewelry and see what you can mix & match with your NEW.

   Remember to have fun layer them up and mix romance with tough for some fun!

Little tip when wearing Arm candy….keep your other jewelry simple!

Let your wrist make the statement!

Have fun, D’Arcy

Arm Candy

Arm candy… The art of layering and mixing layers on your wrist!
Well.. That’s my definition!
Have fun with this mix it up and play!
Silver, beads ,turquoise , leather & steel is what I played with today!
I love mixing gold and silver… Gold and pearls with some added spikes is a favorite lately… Bling and a metal choice… Maybe colored bling and clear bling???
A rule of thumb in design a to work in odd numbers , I say the same when layering jewelry 3,5,7! ( my photo looks like even number but the thin leather strap bracelet is hiding :)) I am wearing 6 bracelets and a watch:) for a total of 7!
So remember to roll up or push up those sleeves and play!
Ox, D’Arcy
