some summertime favs

Picture3

what we love

  • statement earrings
  • oversized babydoll magic
  • button down floral midis + maxis (hello ’90s)
  • cotton gauze maxis + off-the-shoulder tunics
  • high-waistedness (denim, trousers, midis + maxis) x onesies
  • jute x leather totes

why we love it

  • rocking statement earrings is a simple way to step up a minimalist look and they’re the perfect accessory for a messy bun; aka a summertime staple.
  • oversized babydolls have a comfy + playful feel and will transition perfectly into fall:  just add a grandpa cardi and an oversized scarf and yum.
  • the romance and femininity of a button down floral will always be one of our favorite things and they’re beautiful year round.
  • summertime + cotton gauze will always be a perfect easy breezy match.
  • high-waisted bottoms paired with a simple onesie is a flattering look that is timeless and classic.
  • jute x leather is a beautifully durable combination  and this style doubles as the perfect farmer’s market tote.
  • bonus: all the summer goodies we love can be dressed up for that summertime wedding or worn casually for river hangs.

the dawg guide to denim

Picture6
the vintage denim breakdown.

if you’ve ever visited our brick-and-mortar shop, located in northwest arkansas, then you’ve seen that vintage denim is a key staple on our floor.  we love it for it’s timeless appeal, sturdy construction and strong as nails material. figuring out which style and size to go with can be tricky, as each style fits the body differently and previous wear and washes (along with vanity sizing over the years) has made sizing wildly confusing.  so, we’ve created a little breakdown of the vintage denim we carry and hopefully it will help you mamas find the perfect pair! ♥

a li’l size guide:

  • vintage denim runs small.  a good rule of thumb is to go up two sizes from your modern size (i.e.. a modern 28 should start at a 30 and go from there).
  • not sure of your size?  no problem, it’s easy to figure out:  measure your waist around the belly button area (this will be the jean size) and also knowing the measurement around the largest part of your hips is helpful when you’re not able to try the denim on.

a few of our favorite styles:

levi 517’s (left photo)

  • a higher rise and more form fitting throughout the booty and thighs
  • boot-cut silhouette (easily altered into a skinnier leg)
  • zipper closure
  • vintage 517s are identified by the little orange tab on the back pocket
  • this is one of our all-time favorite vintage styles and they’re becoming extinct (it hurts our heart to type this truth..) so hold on tight if you score some!

levi 501’s (center photo)

  • classic red tab 501s was the first style of denim created by levi’s: intended for those pursuing the gold rush in the 1800s. translation: built to last
  • boyfriend style (literally, we only carry men’s 501s so you can share them with your beau!); baggier around hips and thighs and super cute oversized
  • button-up closure
  • perfect for ladies with curves ♥

wranglers (right photo)

  • denim that lived strong in the ’80s
  • more form fitting throughout the waist, rump and thighs
  • straighter throughout the leg
  • a higher rise and a super flattering booty fit make wranglers another favorite of ours ♥

alrighty, we sure hope this helps! our main advice is to not give up until you find that perfect pair because there’s just no denim like the vintage denim. 😉

throwback thursday: anna hutchison photography









today, we’re throwin’ it back to a shoot we styled last summer for local fayetteville photographer, anna hutchison. since we’ve had some super low temps and lots of ice/snow to deal with recently, we figured everyone could use a little warm weather inspiration and a reminder that sunny skies and greener grass are on their way! it’s definitely still the dead of winter right now, but spring will be here before we know it. just keep on truckin’ and stay bundled. xx
