Post image for Shades of Spring

Last week we told you about the pastel trend we love for spring, and today we released our February lookbook, a pastel story.  This week we’ll take a closer look at some of the pretty hues we love for spring, starting with rose… the color of delicate petals, sun-kissed cheeks and grapefruit, symbolic of gentleness, grace and sweetness.

Items pictured: Emma Too Fer Dress, All Over Lace Babydoll Top, Lace Up Skinny Cord, Neon Tide Layering Necklace, Colored Denim Cutoff Shorts, Muddy Waters Sneaker, Neon Nugget Friendship Bracelet, Auburn Pyramid Bracelet, Climbing Vines Blouse, Midtown Mini Dress, Side Slit Cami.

We also love the shade peach on the face right now – check out what’s in our makeup bag.

Post image for Makeup Monday: As Fresh as a Peach

For spring we love the colour Peach! The colour warms your skin in a natural way and gives you a fashiony, quirky cute glow.

DKNY, Preen and Jaeger were all about it on the runway for spring 2012, and now we’re big fans too!

“Peach is an enhancement of who you are already” ~ Vogue Beauty

It’s not too fake or overdone, just fresh and cute and we love that! It gives the impression of healthier glowing skin with the help of a tinted moisturizer and sheer powder for a flawless finish.

Check below for our ideal makeup bag for this spring, and if you have any questions feel free to ask we can get them answered for you by our makeup artist!

Chanel nail polish in inattendu, Nars satin lip colour in Casablanca, Shu Uemura creamy dome blusher in Sunlight Peach, Mac mineralize skin finish in Natural, Stila sheer colour tinted moisturizer

Spring is coming, I can feel it… you start to notice a little change in the air, it carries with it a scent of the warmth that is on its way, flowers poke their heads out of the ground to see if its safe to bloom yet, and the sun fights to stay out a little bit longer. Read more »

DO: Stay in touch









It’s funny how life events coincide around similar themes to get you thinking. I went back to my hometown for visit the other weekend and brought a good friend from Philly along. I got to see some old friends and spent quality time with family. The warmth I felt from seeing everyone made for a good weekend, and also coincided with the conversation my friend and I had had on the car ride up.

She was telling me about an article she read that summarized the top five life regrets people report on their deathbed – one of which was losing touch with friends. They wished that they hadn’t let themselves get so caught up in the day-to-day here and now, and instead, picked up the phone or written a letter once in a while. People who once really mattered got lost in the mix of life, but in the end what’s going to matter is who you’ve loved and who loves you back.

In the days following my visit my thoughts resonated on this article and my hometown visit. Some of my friends weren’t around when I was home, and I found myself wanting to give them a call. I’ve vowed to try and do better at staying in touch, so that I don’t let those people get away. Especially today, with all of our technology – smart phones and email – there’s no excuse to not take a little bit of time. Learn from what the dying have said and stay in touch. When you come to the end of your road, you don’t want to be looking back with the same regrets.

Great Photos! Loved every one of them!
Charity Poole -Feb 18, 2012, 11:29AM
It's so true. This has been something that's come up for me a few times over the years, and I try to make sure to stay in close touch with those relationships that have been significant. Facebook helps, but a phone call means so much more.

That skirt is following me. It's the third time I've seen it today. Therefor I must buy it. I just can't bring myself to do the denim on denim thing though. Did that in the '80s....

Very cute, and girl #3 is beautiful! As are the others!

Post image for Snapshot: Leah Durant, Yorkshire











Lives in: The leafy North of England, Yorkshire. However in a few months I am embarking on a journey via train for a month in Europe.

Shoots with: I always have my Olympus Trip 35 or a disposable camera to hand. The idea of  Toy- point and shoot cameras allow an element of play and experimentation which is something that interests me.

Favorite subject: I’d say my favorite subject are things that we come across in everyday life – for example, things you see when you are walking to the shop or on a train. From the concrete nature of a building or a window frame to the ephemeral snapshot of a reflection of light on water.

Inspired by: I have a strong interest in poetry and old projectors, interior/exterior of houses, 1970s music, nature, science and my favorite photographer Tacita Dean.

Time Period and place I would love to shoot: I would have to choose late 60s early 70s in America

Random Fact: I am addicted to eating jars of olives

Post image for Office Style: Meadow

Today, I went around the office and captured Meadow looks. Sadly, I think that the true, true Meadow comes out in warmer weather, so I didn’t find a ton of it on this rainy Philadelphia day. There were hints of her though! Even in the dreariest of conditions, we can’t help but pull out our bohemian touches – flowing bed jackets, paisley prints, lace detailing, and cozy knits among our favorites. Now, if only it were nice enough to lie outside in a sunny field…

Meadow loves intricate detailing like fine-touched eyelets. Pick up our Daisy Eyelet Button Down if you’re into the look.

Picture 019

When Meadow wears cardigans, she does them long and flowing. Get the look with our Ribbed Long Cashmere Cardigan and Jenny Floppy Hat.

Get the flower-child look with our Mulberry Rose Crown.

The Voile Trapeze Slip is a must-have in any Meadow closet.

Post image for Store Style: Blue Jean Baby

In case you couldn’t tell by looking at our website, we’re pretty into denim right now – even the good old Canadian tuxedo!  But even if head to toe denim is a little too much for you, we love finding ways to incorporate pieces of it into every outfit, and it feels so fresh for Spring. Here’s some styling inspiration from our always-lovely store girls!

The denim bustier dress is definitely our dress of the moment – change it up a little by adding a slip underneath!

The perfect cutoff denim short – wear them now with tights and boots; wear them later with bare legs and sandals – and of course the laguna coast pullover!


A sweet Meadow look: the fp high rise flares, flower smocked tube top and suede floral headband.


I love how she paired the denim bustier dress with a belt in a contrasting shade of blue – the dress also looks great with the caballero tall boot and jane wide brim hat.


Denim on denim! The cutoff denim short, riding with cowboys tank and traveler denim jacket.


The denim bustier dress looks absolutely adorable with boots or converse!


And lastly, we love the denim bustier dress with the traveler denim jacket!

Shop the Blue Jean Baby collection.
