Romantic Florals

by Tinner in , , ,

Hi guys! Let’s talk about trends we’ve seen for a little while- “romantic florals,” open shoulder, high waist jeans and gladiators. They’ve been around for a while and they’re still in -it’s time to invest in them.

The shirt I’m wearing, I immediately fell in love with. I thought it was a really special top and this season I had always admired how special looking floral Zimmermann tops looked, but I never wanted to spend close to $500 on one Zimmermann top. This top was perfect because it had the floral pattern that I wanted and the silhouette that I wanted of the open shoulders and it was the perfect price for me. I got it on sale at Intermix, its Intermix’s exclusive line, and they had so many more floral items I loved at an affordable price.

The Intermix top I’m wearing looks pretty similar to the Zimmermann ones I love, so why is the Intermix one so much less? It’s because it’s Intermix’s exclusive line- they can mark their items lower, while producing items of the same quality because they are selling direct to consumer not wholesale. I highly recommend buying items that are direct to consumer like items from the Intermix exclusive line, “Bop Basics” on Shopbop or Aqua from Bloomingdales.

As for my jeans- I needed a new pair of ripped jeans and figured I’d give high-waisted a try! I’m so happy I did because I now pair them with almost anything; my shorter tops that need to be with a high jean and regular tops that I tuck in or let hang and cover the high waist. Mine are from Revolve, there’s no sale going on with Revolve right now but if you use the code “Tulip” you receive 15% off all merchandise that’s not a best seller or a new arrival.

Stay tuned later this week for my post for Fourth of July weekend essentials!

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...

{Click herehere and here for overalls like the ones above!}

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.

Seeing Stripes

by Tinner in , ,


Every store we walk into at the moment, is filled with racks upon racks of white and blue striped pieces -- with many, eye-catching variations. For Memorial Day Weekend, Lindsay showed her festivity by pairing this striped J.Crew Factory top ($30!), with AG white jeans, Steve Madden wedges, and of course, the most classic RayBan Aviators. 

Tops like these are perfect (and super easy) to throw on for the summer and go well with any white or denim bottom. Below are a few striped tops that we are also watching!!

Check out these summer, striped styles from Shopbop and Zara -- here (this one's my fav), here, here, here, here, here, and finally, this amazing crop top (that's on sale!)

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! :)

Skirtin' Around

by Tinner in , , , ,

A super hot trend right now is a skirt and matching crop top set.  BCBG Max Azria has an amazing selection of these sets for the summer, most of which are 40% off! After multiple trips to BCBG, drooling over the chic cropped jackets, and  sets, Lindsay finally went for the purchase. This high wasited blue and white patterned skirt shares a matching top that is also very flattering.

 She decided in order to make the most of the purchase, the skirt and shirt need to be worn separately when possible. Yesterday, for work, she paired the skirt with a simple, blush Madewell blouse. She added her new H&M heels (that were less than $30), her stylish Karen Walker sunglasses, and a bunch of her favorite jewelry from Neely by NVB. Also from Neely by NVB is the Brown Evie bag seen here, that is a perfect size for an everyday work bag.

 What also makes this bag so special is that the colors of the bag represent each school that Neely's team visits on their college tours. While Lindsay obviously loves the Washington and Lee Generals Blue and White, she decided the Brown University's colors were more neutral and would work well with any outfit, as it does here.
