Hi Ya’ll! It’s Ali from A Dash of Details, and I’m su per excited to be over here on Girls of Lincoln Park today! With GOLP being one of my favorite places to find fashion inspiration, I thought it was only fitting to lsut over some of my favorite Spring finds.
Although Chicago and Kansas City are still experiencing some frigid temperatures, to say I am ready for Spring is a complete understatement. When it comes to SPring, there are four things that come to mind: floral prints, the perfect pair of new sandals, sunnies, and sitting on a patio with friends on a warm, sunny day. I may still be wearing boots and a coat for a little longer, but a girl can dream, right?!
A huge thanks again for having me on GOLP! Be sure to stop on by and say “hello” to a Dash of Details! Xo -Ali
Hi readers! I am so excited to be guest posting today for the GOLP. My name is Jen and I blog at Red Soles and Red Wine; I share daily doses of fashion from styling to lookbooks and in all my looks I accessorize with my jewelry line t+j Designs. This month I’m a bit obsessed about reading my September issues and get giddy thinking about all the fall fashions I covet.
Last fall I was obsessed with leopard, from apparel to shoes and handbags, I splurged on everything leopard.
This year I’m loving the leather trends I’m seeing. From peplums to jackets to head to toe leather looks, I love them all. I pinned some of my favorite looks for inspiration:
Inspired by these looks, I’m coveting these three items (two of them are faux and under $100):
Leather is one of those items that lasts in your closet from year to year. Which fall trend do you love and what are you coveting? Thanks for having me GOLP! Xo - Jen
Hi GOLP readers! My name is Kat and I write With Love From, Kat; a lifestyle blog about interior design, fashion, beauty, food and travel. I’m so excited to be guest posting here today. I first found out about The Girls of Lincoln Park through Pinterest - have you seen their boards? I think I must repin every single one of their pictures! I decided to post about chevron rugs because I love the way they make a room come to life. Chevron rugs make a small space feel bigger, and a big space feel smaller and cozier - see for yourself in the pictures below! Crazy, right? I moved into a tiny NYC apartment with my boyfriend a few months ago and have been struggling to complete my living room/dressing room area. I’m thinking a chevron rug will be the perfect finishing touch, what do you think?!
Thanks for having me, girls! Xo - Kat
Today we have Annie from Live Simply who shares with us some great tips on how to organize our baubles!
Hi GOLP! Many of you are most likely well versed in styling your jewelry but some of you may be stumped when it comes to actually organizing it. The solution of yesteryears was to use drawer divider inserts of varying sizes to house jewelry - which in case you’re wondering, still works fantastically. Today’s girl, however, is opting for a more eclectic, DIY solution. Now we want our jewelry storage to reflect our style as much as our actual baubles. From utilizing traditional wall hooks to vintage tea cups, there are several creative ways to display some of our finer things in life.
Above picture depicts the traditional wall hook.
Stack your arm parties using paper towel holders or old bottles.
Shallow dishes are perfect for easy access.
Displaying rings in a bed of uncooked rice allows for added cushion and guaranteed placement.
The classic ring holder may never go out of style.
For a little bit of chic and a touch of vintage, tea cups can provide the perfect placeholder for both earrings and bracelets.
