Dainty Layers

Dainty Layers

Minimalist layering is trending, and when done right it is far from boring. Simple pieces defined by metal choice, texture, and color create interest in an outfit and give you style. Remember clothes are well…just clothes, until they are accessorized! Accessories pull your look together and give you a put-together style that gets noticed.

Chokers are so popular right now as a top layer.

When layering in 3’s with a choker, the top layer should be the widest part of the layering set.

How we’re styling FUR!

How we're styling FUR

The on-trend fur vest is “fur” everything and anybody–haha we had to ;). We think so, and we held out as long as we could before showing you our favorite ways to style your fall and winter wardrobe with fur. Fur is a wardrobe staple for fall layering, and pairs well with a neutral pallete as well as plaids and prints. Here are some of the ways we’re styling and accessorizing fur this season.

FUR WHENEVER! Dress up your grab-and-go plaid shirt with a stylish shearling vest. Keep accessories simple but add your initials for a personalized, classic statement. Classic pearls and silver bracelets add that feminine touch and pull together the look!

Fur Whenever


FUR WORK! Break up a bold print with a long, shaggy shearling and suede vest. Fringe booties and a long vintage necklace create a stylish 70’s vibe. A bracelet stack with a pop of color completes this style session!

Fur Work


FUR THE DAY! Dress up a neutral palette with a fur and leather jacket. Our trendy “Y” necklace with an antiqued green Ironworks pendant really stands out with this outfit. We paired a nice statement cuff and earrings, keeping things simple. Don’t be afraid of color! This red Lauryn sling shows you are a girl on a mission!

Fur the Day


FUR THE NIGHT! Dress up a dark silhouette with a girly, belted fur vest. Chokers are back! Pair with a feminine, personalized pendant which showcases nicely on a dark top. Add some fun and sparkle in your earrings and bangles, and don’t forget your monogrammed Miss Lucy bag to keep your personal items close at hand!

This is what Memories are made of!

Ear and Hand Warmers

November rolls in this Sunday and time falls back, leaving us with less daylight and cooler temperatures. That’s okay with us, though, because this month is all about bundling up and enjoying the outdoors with family and friends. There is nothing better than sharing a cup of cocoa on the porch before heading over to roast a marshmallow over the bonfire. There are so many memories made with family and friends this time of year, so grab your camera and don’t miss a one! Here are some of our cuties showing their favorite ways to accessorize for the cool, fall weather!


Personalized ear warmers not only look adorable…they keep you warm! Little Olivia, our 6th grader, is in love with the pink and black, while college sophomore, Jorja, rocked the ivory with her multi-striped sweater. These are so giftable for only $16 (ES0091-01 Pink and black; ES0091-02 Ivory).

A little something for everyone! Even with the age difference in this family, both girls went crazy over our monogrammed hand warmers. The perfect set for any girl when paired with our ear warmers. Get the set for $38 (ES0092-01 Black hand warmers with ES0091-01 Pink and black ear warmer; ES0092-02 Ivory hand warmers with ES0091-02 Ivory ear warmer; ES0092-03 Red hand warmers (not pictured)

The little black glove is an essential accessory in every ladies wardrobe. Classic monogrammed chenille gloves are a must for keeping you warm with the chilly temperatures. Added bonus: a ton of compliments will follow! At $14 every lady deserves a pair, ES0096.


Hand Warmer 

The monogrammed boot sock revolutionized the way we wear our boots and booties! Olivia rocked the black boot cuffs with her red boots, while Jorja chose the Ivory button cuffs to pair with her rain boots. LOVE THIS COMBO! Get on trend for $22 (ES0072-0200 Black boot cuff; ES0073-0300 Ivory boot cuff.)
