The Classic Leopard Flat

white on whiteleopard flats

There’s one staple that every girl should have in her closet.

The classic leopard pointed-toe flat, of course. These gorgeous little leopard stunners are easily the most versatile kicks I’ve ever stepped into. Whether your’e dressing them up (for work) or dressing them down (for everyday wear), styling them in the fall or winter months or even putting some spring in your step on summer days — these all-year round versatile chic kicks are the epitome of transitional and chic closet staples.

If there’s one place to scavenge for high-quality, absolutely-trendy, and oh-so-comfy flats, it’s most definitely Nordstrom. The shoe selection is to d-i-e for (did I mention they are having a huge half-yearly sale too?) and the department is made up of kicks ranging from various trends, price points, and brands — easily making Nordstrom the ideal shoe destination to fit any occasion. Naturally I headed over to Nordstrom and stumbled upon these gorgeous and classic calf-hair kicks. I immediately fell head-over-heels in love with the Chic3 Flat by Ivanka Trump because of their under-$100-price point, high-quality, and versatile structure. If the oh-so-darling calf hair and pointed-toe design isn’t enough to convince to you to score a pair for yourself, the comfort will most definitely win you over. There’s a tiny little heel to support your step, and the high-quality design separates these little darlings from other leopard-printed kicks. Mouse over to the Nordstrom flat collection right here to check out the rest of the flats I’m loving for summer, and find my favorite leopard cuties right here.

The Little White (Summer) Dress

Happy Memorial Day!

Today’s holiday #ootd is all about the little white dress — a little staple that is that perfect transitional piece to take you from spring to summer, but from day to night. Whether I’ll be wearing it out or wearing it in, I have some big plans for this little white lace darling. Because LBH, its day-to-night versatility is just about everything you and I have ever wanted in a little white dress.

I styled the simple white lace overlay dress (which just so happens to be 40% off! and under $50.00) with simple cognac accessories. The reversible street-level tote just so happens to also be my new favorite everyday beach bag, encompassing just about every aspect of the ideal summer bag any girl has ever wanted in a tote. Styled with the notoriously comfy-cozy Josephine Wedges by MK, these two darling accessories will help you transition from spring to summer and from day to night in effortlessly chic style.

Denim Darling

I have a confession to make.

This is my first denim jacket…… ever! Yes I just said it – ever! Somehow—and I’m not sure how—I’ve managed to dodge the simple necessity of owning one of the most essential pieces in a darling’s wardrobe for 22 years: the classic jean jacket. I believe it’s safe to say that that time is officially over!

I was convinced (and swooning) to buy the denim darling after stumbling up on the Classic Denim Jacket by Treasure & Bond. After already being one of my favorite brands, Treasure & Bond won my heart over yet again after realizing that this denim jacket cutie is a summer essential. I prefer a simple and casual look, so I paired it with a white-on-white classic #ootd. The photos of this little white tank by Stem doesn’t do the soft-to-touch material justice, since the dreamy texture is just about the only thing I ever want to wear (for the rest of my life). Don’t believe me? I dare you to try it. I think you won’t be disappointed! Happy Friday and scroll down for more darling deets and links! Xo

Summer Getaway with Royal Caribbean

Salty hair, sandy toes, turquoise waters, and golden glows. So … can I go back now?

I’ve found myself fantasizing about the oh-so-dreamy majesties after saying “bon voyage” to reality and hopping on to the get-away of a lifetime. The stunning Royal Caribbean Navigator of the Seas sailed off into the Gulf right out of Galveston (just a quick drive from Austin, you guys) — and naturally, I immediately ditched the travel clothes, grabbed my bikini and headed to the top of the boat beauty to soak up the sun. From the get-go, the bro-tographer and I were greeted with just about the sweetest hospitality out there, delish food, and stunning (insta-worth, youtube-worthy, and blog-worthy) locations.

Our eyes were wide with wanderlust as we island-hopped from Cozumel to the Grand Cayman Islands and then on to Jamaica. If you’re in Cozumel, be sure to stop by Play Palancar. Turquoise blue waters and delicious margaritas greeted us as we spent a day in the sun — soaking up the Caribbean air. When in Grand Cayman, this day unfortunately became a work day for this little fashion blogger right here, but our next island stop happened to be one of my favorite beaches on earth – Jamaica. Beauty was an understatement as I spent the day digging my toes into the white sand beaches, sipping on Jamaica’s famous Red Stripe beer, and sinking my teeth into a few of Jamaica’s spicy jerk specialties. Yum!

What I also loved about taking this cruise was the opportunity to pull out all the stops on my cruise wardrobe! It’s simply the perfect playground for all fashionistas alike. Between venturing out to each island, dressing up for formal nights on board, grabbing Starbucks on the promenade, and simply sitting back and relaxing on the top deck in the middle of the Caribbean Sea — the outfit possibilities are endless.  Casual for breakfast, bikinis all day, and oh, what fun to dress up for those fancy dinners!  Since my Instagram couldn’t quite capture all of the beauty encompassed by the trip — we thought we would bring the trip to YouTube. So sit back, relax, and enjoy! If you are interested in hopping on a Royal Caribbean adventure sometime soon, feel free to email me at jessi@thedarlingdetail.com for any sailing tips or cruise outfit advice. You’ll love this oh-so-fun summer getaway! xo Jessi
