It’s the little things

By

The little things are the big things. That’s kind of my mantra lately, and I think that’s what our little blog is all about, too. Finding the FRILLS in the ordinary, daily stuff (Check out our Frillosophy for more); seeing the beauty in the little things.

We try to see life this way on both deeper levels and at the surface. For me, even when I’m getting dressed, I try to add tiny frills of creativity that will provide me with little reasons to smile amidst stress and chaos.

Like a rolled skinny pant, with a pop of cute sock:

Or just a bit of a popped collar, with a bright bauble to add some FRILLS:

Or a rolled up cardigan, layered with a rolled up chambray:

Necklace: J Crew / chambray: J Crew / cardigan: Madewell / pants: Banana Republic Factory / socks: gifted / shoes: Naya (a collection from Naturalizer) 

Casual, but comfortable, and also creative. It’s all about the little things, right?

I Dream in Polka Dot

By

Happy Friday everyone! Today I am thinking about polka dots. They just can’t get any more popular can they? Big polka dots, small polka dots, colored polka dots, polka dots of different fabrics. Polka dots are everywhere! And now that I think about it, I have a little bit of a polka dot obsession. In fact, I’ll prove it to you. Later today, I will instagram a photo of some of my favorite polka dot pieces. You just wait and see. It’ll make sense that I dream in polka dot.

Ever since I began styling at J Crew, my own style has been evolving like crazy! I am in the midst of style inspiration constantly, and it has given me the opportunity to grow and be creative with my personal sense of fashion. I love getting to play with different patterns and textures. No matter how crazy, it’s never too crazy to wear to work!

Here I am layering polka dots using my dress and tights (both from Madewell), and then I am toning it all down with an unbuttoned chambray. I didn’t want to feel too dressed up, and the added chambray top was the perfect addition for a casual, day-time look. Finally, I added my favorite long necklace as of late (it reminds me of an everlasting gobstopper, and I kind of want to eat it).

Do you have some favorite polka-dot pieces? Email us: youfrillme (at) gmail (dot) com, and we may post your favorite piece on the blog!
