Now Trending: Blush + Off the Shoulder

by Tinner in , ,

The more blogs and websites we come across, the more we see blush everywhere. I hesitate to call blush "pink" though, because I think it turns a lot of people off (including myself). But recently, it seems like its being worn by everyone under the sun - anyone from chic to preppy.

What I like about blush is that it is very soft, elegant (no matter how you dress it), and easy to wear in the spring/summer, as you can pair it with any white bottom. The color looks amazing with all skin tones, but especially if you have a little summer glow!!

This ASOS off the shoulder, blush top is definitely already one of my favorite summer pieces and is something that I am going to wear often in the coming weeks. In addition to the elegance of the color, the off the shoulder style allows you to effortlessly dress up the outfit.

This week we are flashing it back- to Fall 2016 (and the 80's!) during my semester abroad in Florence, Italy. Overalls and chokers seem to be one of the biggest 'throwback' trends of today's millennial fashion and we are excited to share with you how we prefer to pair them!

Like chokers, overalls are a come back item that have slightly evolved to include a more modern, chic twist. Our friend Emma Scott, pictured below (and probably one of the most photographed Tinner friends), never seizes to amaze us with her ability to stay ahead of trends by finding neat, hole-in-the-wall shops and styling their unique products with simple accessories. (Simplicity is key with overalls).

During our first touristy adventure in our new home in Florence, Emma (or Scoo as we call her) rocked these overalls with a comfortable Gap T-shirt and white, Dolce Vita Sneakers. Her simple accessories included, Rayban Sunglasses, ASHA Zodiac Ring, Michael Kors Watch, and a Leather Backpack

**We only got a couple confused looks from the Italians-- and turns out there is no direct translation for "American Fashion Blog," so we just went with it...

Scoo stumbled across these overalls at a pop-up in NYC called The Vintage Twin, who's motto is "Reworked Hunted Treasure. One of Each Item." At the pop-up, which gives 10% of their total company proceeds to charity,  Emma had these stressed and cut perfectly to fit her body. Offering a variety of custom vintage items at affordable prices,  the founders Morgan and Samantha Elias strive to provide unique items that allow customers to wear and express their individuality. Their mission is "hunting for treasures among the millions of quality goods that are given up each year, reworking some to make them on-trend and salvaging fabric and parts from others to create new designs."

Check out to shop online or visit their pop-up going on now until July 7th on 20 Spring Street and 199 Lafayette in NYC.

The (Sort of) Boyfriend Jeans

by Tinner in , ,

With every new season, old trends return and current trends evolve. As we head into Fall, distressed denim seems to be at the forefront of both old and new. I have always been a fan of a simple skinny jean or jegging and have been reluctant to try different shapes and styles with the concern they wouldn't be flattering for my body (i.e. boyfriend jeans). Nevertheless, always fun to try trends that bring you out of your comfort zone a little bite. In an attempt to find boyfriend jeans that I could wear while traveling abroad, I stumbled across these baggy jeans that aren't quite boyfriend but have the same effect. Because they still have some shape, they aren't as unflattering as boyfriend jeans can sometimes be. And though the rips are somewhat aggressive, you can wear them as a fun beach look, chic European look, or even a little more conservative look with a simple, oversized button down (as pictured).

I am usually a huge fan of color and simple gold jewelry, as I like and feel most comfortable in it. This look, however, was one of my favorites from the summer and something completely out of my usual repertoire. The big staple necklace and cuff were really fun and I used the heels to bring it all together. I also really thought that my Warby Parker glasses were a fun addition and constantly try to remind myself that glasses can also be used to accessorize. 

As I head into my second week studying abroad in Italy, I made another unconventional purchase; ripped, light wash, overalls. Stay tuned to see how I style them and combine my desire to be ~European chic~ with my personal style!

Linner's Abroad Essentials

by Tinner in , , ,

As we talked about in 'Neutral Necessities,' when shopping and packing for abroad, it is very important to stick to neutrals and think about how many different ways you could wear a certain item. While having a white skirt or a chic black jacket is critical for creating a variety of outfits, sometimes the most important items to match are the everyday accessories that make a statement while still staying simple. You don't want to bring bright pink supergas or an impractical sequin clutch; you have to think pragmatically about what you are going to get the most use of and how that item can be the staple to each outfit you put together. This is an important fashion lesson in general, not just for abroad, and is a good way to save money because neutrals are great and LESS IS MORE, people! :)

Summer Reds

by Tinner in , ,

It's not everyday that you'll see me in a bright, busy patterned dress. I am usually pretty hesitant about buying things that are not incredibly versatile as I find that it makes my closet feel small/limited. However, when Lindsay's sister let me borrow this new dress of hers to shoot, I realized I need to be more open to some of my purchases.

This, for example, is a dress I probably would have never picked out on my own (if we're being honest). It's like growing up when your mom would tell you to try something you didn't like on the hanger and ended up loving it once you have it on in the dressing room. I'm so glad Hollin encouraged me to wear this for a quick shoot because I honestly think it's one of my favorites from this summer.

In hindsight it would have been better for me to wear it with flats, as the wedges made it a little short on me but in general I usually have to buy tall dresses  because of my height. So don't let the shortness of this fool you -- it is a normal length. Not to mention really pretty, soft (silk), and super easy to just throw on.

Neutral Necessities

by Tinner in ,

As the end of summer approaches, and I have to start thinking about what I am going to pack for my semester abroad in Florence, I've been trying to find clothes that are neutral, affordable, comfortable and versatile. I recently came across the sale rack at a Club Monaco store and found this top and pair of shorts (they aren't a set but they might as well be). Both pieces were an additional 30% off the sale price making them impossible to say no to.

I know they will serve as staple pieces the rest of this summer and while I am in Florence and it's nice knowing they didn't break the bank. Neutrals are perfect for this time of year and essential when packing for a trip. It's important to always bring things that can be worn in a variety of ways and don't necessarily need to be dry cleaned.
