Do you ever see items on Pinterest or posted wherever online with captions like “I wish I had somewhere to wear this” or “dream wardrobe”.
Everyday? Yeah, me too. And I get it. I often run across items I like or trends I’m inspired by but aren’t sure where they’d fit into into my own wardrobe. Take this skirt…
Designed by Hello Holiday’s Emerging Designer Jane Round, this piece is large and in charge in the best way possible, and super on trend for spring (hello mint!) without being too trend-reliant. I’ve been toying with different ways to style it in my mind and even had a discussion about it with our Beauty Director, Rebecca, the other day. She suggested pairing it with a simple white tank. Wouldn’t that be adorable? Especially with a bold, chunky necklace in say, coral or lemon. I love that idea!
Today, it struck me as I was getting dressed to pair this piece with a simple denim shirt. You know, the ones Gap have been reproducing for the last 20 years? One of those. Don’t have one? Get one, you’ll have it forever. I think mine is 10 years old, no joke. So I paired our Mint Chip Malt Skirt with a denim shirt, double knotted at the waist and my favorite shoes of the season (I say that about all our shoes –sorry not sorry), our Turning Point Sandals (grab these comfy beauties soon, I swear you won’t regret it and they’re almost sold out).
You guys I almost cried when I looked in the mirror. This simple denim top is the PERFECT MATCH for such a bold skirt. Ready for where you wear this? Ok.
(1) Engagement photo session in the country. Imagine this outfit, barefoot even with a little handful of wildflowers.
(2) A party you’re hosting. You can add the bold chunky necklace over the denim shirt and maybe even pop your collar for prep-perfect styling.
(3) A friend’s rehearsal dinner. Swap the denim shirt for a plain white oxford button-up. Pearls would be pretty.
(4) Out on a Friday night because why the fuck not?
Go forth and be a cutie.
There’s nothing like a little bit of coral to really get your spring engine running. Today, spring hit me in the face with a frying pan (aka my allergies are here) and I’m at home couching it writing product descriptions for a bunch of new jewelry hitting the site tomorrow. But luckily, these photos are from last week, when I didn’t have tissue stuffed nostrils and wasn’t binging on netti pot treatments.
I was feeling pretty, pretty good (say it like Larry David or don’t say it at all) on this day.
I’m wearing a bunch of new goodies from Hello Holiday, including our Coup de Foudre Dress, New Penny Purse (sold out, I know…wahh I didn’t get one either), Cleaver Sunglasses (very dark, great hangover shades) and Stop Traffic Wedges.
I love everything about this look, but my fave part by far is my espadrilles. I think I passed out onto a fainting couch when we spotted these in Seychelles’ showroom last fall.
A collaboration between designer Corey Lynn Calter and Seychelles, they’re my top pick for the summer season. Sure, they’ve got little flashes of color, but they’re actually very neutral and look amazing with almost anything. Just wear ‘em around the house in your birthday suit for maximum effect (jk) (kind of).
Well isn’t this dress just a spicy little meatball! I fell in love with our Seams Dandy Dress the moment I saw it at market last August.
Neon yellow fabric, interesting seams and a silhouette that seems to fall somewhere between shift and a-line. I’m basically a fool for forgetting to get a photo, but the back of this dress is open, perfect for the ladies like me who (a) don’t mind going braless or (b) are intrigued by the chance to show a little turquoise bralette.
If you’ve paid any attention to Australia’s fashion weeks/scene over the last several years, it makes perfect sense that this little number was designed down under. There’s almost an innovative rustling happening with their style community, and Elliatt (the designer of this dress) is definitely a part of it.
If this blog was a child, they’d charge me with neglect. Here are some of my favorite daily looks so far for 2013, you can shop 99% of it at Hello Holiday.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you all had a glorious day filled to the brim with food and naps, and more food and naps (with a few cocktails in there for good measure).
I’m up at the Hello Holiday office with Megan and Jon, working away getting everything ready for our big BRIGHT FRIDAY SALE. We just added a million-bajillion new items to the shop for Hello Holiday’s Bright Friday sale, including tons of accessories, a new dress line, tights and sunglasses subscription clubs and 50% off all our denim.

Hey everyone! Just wanted to announce that Megan and I have trademarked THE DENIM BITCHES™ as the official authority on denim!
Just kidding. But we did make a sweet video (with a
little lot of help from my husband Jon) about the line of denim we carry at Hello Holiday, Level 99. We searched long and hard at the last two markets we attended to find a really great, affordably priced line that we really believed in, and here it is! I cannot describe how lovely this line is. All of the waistbands are “contoured”, so they fit snugly to your shape (no gapping) and Level 99 is all made in the USA, which is really unique for a denim line.
Each pair is buttery soft, and we’ve got a really great selection from jeggings (I hate that word, but it’s descriptive) to straighter legs to boyfriend jeans to boot styles. Something for everyone, which is what we’re really all about.
I hope you watch the video and don’t think I’m too much of a dork! Check out our selection here.
P.S. We offer FREE SHIPPING and EXCHANGES on all denim styles, so if you’re unsure of your sizes it’s no risk to make your best guess and send them back for another size if you need it! Voila!
