08/05/2017 Darling of the Day: Rachel Bilson is Neutral Chic in Denim!


Contrary to popular style belief, sometimes the most fashionable looks aren’t necessarily the fanciest. I’m of the mindset that style should exist on the daily & even on my most casual of days off, I take care of myself in the best way I know how—comfortably! Still, on those days, I have things to do like see my family or prepare a dinner date night with my boyfriend, so even if I give my face a break & go makeup-free, I like to put together an easy breezy outfit (comfy top & jeans perhaps) with unexpected twists (usually in the form of accessories).

Actress Rachel Bilson is showing her casual style with a combination of no-fuss neutrals with denim, heather gray, tan, black & silver during a sunny afternoon in Beverly Hills. Typically, one might not think these colors work together, but the Nashville / former Hart of Dixie / The O.C. it-girl knows how to style even the simplest seeming looks, especially with Old Navy’s $40 Rockstar skinny jeans! Earlier in the week, I featured Blake Lively mixing her high-low look with the same jeans in a darker wash!

SHOP: tee @JCPenney (shop plus here), jeans @Old Navy, sunglasses @Target, hoop earrings @Charming Charlie, satchel @Charming Charlie, & Trope sandals by Steve Madden @DSW.

Holiday Gift Styles: Pre-Black Friday BOGO FREE Jeans Deal From Delia’s!


Delia’s isn’t really a store meant for my demographic, I get that, but I can’t help but love the adorable styles that are perfect for a casual day of cuteness.  What’s better is the latest in-store only BOGO FREE jeans sale (excluding jeggings) currently going on @Delias today. Of course the store runs in juniors sizes from 00-19/20, which is perfect for my curvy Style Darlings too! Since the sale is just too good to miss, bring a gal pal with you shopping so you can both benefit from the offer!

With this sale, you can jump on board the latest trends in denim including colored jeans, neon, metallic, & prints.  I recommend the Britt low-rise skinny color jean ($39.50) in red, which are also available in deep purple, electric blue, & geranium.  Also, the peach floral skinny jean ($39.50) which will immediately soften any heavy, chunky knit that you’re sporting to keep warm.  Work that 80s flair in the Britt low-rise skinny jean ($39.50) in safety yellow, which are also available to brighten up your look in coral & coral blast. Lastly, you can keep those basics like a black tee or white button-down handy to help neutralize the eye-catching gold coated skinny jean ($39.50), especially if you want to start putting together a potential New Year’s Eve look with separates.

The Stylish Five: The Limited’s Sale Items ($10 & Under)!


I was flipping through March’s issue of Lucky magazine with Heidi Klum on the cover & came across an ad for The Limited’s new spring collection featuring this dress. I’m all about the polka dots, but while I’m on a post-vacation budget, I need to focus on buying only the necessities, or perhaps items that come from scoring really awesome deals. I like to put a price tag on these like finding something $10 or under that’s both fashionable & functional throughout the year, thus we have The Stylish Five.

 The easiest items to pick out are always accessories. They’re so versatile & can really make the most basic black dress or t-shirt & jeans seem more luxurious. A cocktail ring like this one would look very mod against a hot pink dress, or serve nicely for a look with a lot of print or pattern. As for the pearl drop earrings, nothing says sophisticated glamour like pearls that can be worn with a maxi dress in the summer, or with your favorite tweed blazer. I love these textured tights, which really bring more dimension to your outfit if paired with something menswear-inspired. As for the tops, the snowflake tee may seem a little bit on the novelty side, but with the right pair of leggings, a chunky scarf, & leather jacket, it’s your go-to sparkle piece. The tunic is in a rich ‘Gosford Pink’ & totally appropriate for so many occasions.  The jewel tone is one of the colors of the upcoming season. Try it with a flyaway cardigan & ballet flats for an uber-comfortable casual day out & about. Happy Styling!
