i’ve been following day space night for a few seasons now, and finally realized that i’d never shared them with you! i was initially drawn to them for their easy matching sets and fun color palettes. but it’s funny, as much as i love color, i always shy away from the bold prints that catch my eye. luckily for me, they’ve just released a collection of neutrals in oatmeal and black linen. the kinds of clothes that lay the foundation for a practical wardrobe without being boring. because as much as i love “the basics,” i need a little bit of style, too. and that’s exactly what you’ll find with these beautiful linen wares. i could easily see myself snapping up every single piece from this collection in both colors and wearing them again and again. the sam crop is such a perfect take on a classic men’s shirt. and was so bummed what i saw that the a-ok overalls were already sold out because i could easily see myself wearing them as part of my summer uniform. but thankfully, it looks like they’ve be restocking soon!
you can tell i’ve been bracing myself for some seriously hot weather by how much i’ve been posting about linen lately. but can you really resist when collections like this exist to keep you looking fancy as hell even in the heat of the summer? i first came across stil while browsing through the offerings at one of my favorite shops, avenue boutique. the first thing that jumped out at me was the perfectly retro loren playsuit, which is what my summer vacation dreams are made of. but then of course, i wandered over to their site to learn more about the brand:
i first learned about town clothes a few seasons ago, when my internet pal (and sometimes model) emily rose theobald, popped up in my instagram feed modeling one of their collections. she is an incredibly stylish woman, so i always stop to see what she’s wearing. and immediately i knew this brand would be one to watch. their latest spring 2018 collection is just so good! in addition lots of statement sleeves, which you know i’m all about these days, the color palette is filled with all of the perfect shades of cream and green in fun silhouettes using beautiful, natural materials like linen and cotton.
today i am so excited to introduce you to a brand new collection. rachael harrah has just launched her first round of perfect linen tops, and you are going to want one in every color! she’s introduced a classic long-sleeved linen blouse in addition to a breezy split neck short-sleeve, both in beautifully garment dyed shades of all natural linen. everything is produced in los angeles with a focus on functionality and durability. the type of clothing that you can wash and wear all day, every day. foundational pieces for your wardrobe to last a lifetime. i picked out the short sleeve in rust linen for myself, but i wouldn’t mind having on of everything!
it seems lately that i’ve been connecting with a lot of really amazing australian brands. one such brand is little tienda. i wrote about them a few weeks back in this post, wearing the martina blouse, which has become a stand-by this spring. but i can’t stop at just one piece! i’ve been thinking a lot about my spring/summer wardrobe, and i keep coming back to so many of my favorite pieces from this collection. currently on the top of my wishlist? the breezy cotton freya dress and the sweetest linen edith dress (i mean, c’mon? edith? it’s meant to be)! the color palette is divine, and the details are spot on. from the ruffled collars layered beneath easy jumpsuits to floaty gauze dresses, perfect for traipsing around on weekend adventures. i want it all!
as is the thing with fashion, i’m already anticipating the new spring collections, some of which are already trickling into stores as early as january. one that is high on my wishlist already is ace & jig spring 2018. over the years, i have become more and more of a fan of their beautiful textiles and interesting designs. they really never disappoint, and always outdo themselves with each new season. i’ve probably said this before, but one of the things i really appreciate about ace & jig is that their textiles are so easy to wash and wear. you don’t even need an iron, you can just pull them from the dryer and put them right on. they have this really substantial weight to them and a depth of texture that makes them just so easy to wear again and again. and i always feel so pulled together when i throw on one of their dresses for the day– and i usually get the most compliments when i’m wearing ace & jig because they stand out from the crowd, but aren’t overly flashy or intimidating. it really is no wonder that they have such a cult following with people buying, selling, and trading their pieces.
the new spring collection is about to drop and i’m really really into the orange, tan, and mustard colors! although if i’m being honest, looking at the styling makes me feel like i could even pull-off some of the colors i normally avoid, like lavender or bright teal! i think one mark of a good designer is having the ability to convince the customer to try new things and to really get pulled into the whole world they’ve created. and that’s definitely what happens to me each time they come out with a new collection.
the new collection isn’t out just yet, but you can run and catch the fall sale if you head over now…
