Casual Summer Style

BY TARA BURKE

Collared tees are such a simple way to get both a polished and casual look perfect for summer. I got this one thrifting, as usual, but it’s really Mossimo, which was a brand that you normally found at Target. However, if I remember correctly Target has since dropped the brand.

latest vintage find

BY TARA BURKE

Y’all know I love thrifting and finding great vintage pieces. I found this amazing 40s style dress on my last thrifting adventure and it has become one of my favorite vintage purchases. It has so many cute details and is a great representation of how Dior’s “New Look” trickled down into casual ready-to-wear during the late 1940s.

Sporty Swing Dress

BY TARA BURKE

There is nothing more simple, easy and cute to throw on than a swing dress when the weather starts getting warmer. I found this one at Burke’s Outlet on our recent trip to visit family in New Mexico. Burke’s Outlet is pretty similar to a T.J. Maxx or Marshalls, but it is even better because it is named after us!

Freely Clothing X Outboxed Sports

BY TARA BURKE

As many of you know, I own a give back clothing brand (Freely Clothing) and Cailin has a sports Youtube channel (Outboxed Sports)! Our amazingly cool friend recently started an Instagram page (baW) that showcases inspiring women and how they’re killin’ it in their respective fields. We were honored when she asked us to do a short interview for their Women Crush Wednesday feature, so we commemorated the event by getting some new headshots and product photos.

Golden Skirts & Golden Hour

BY TARA BURKE

This outfit has a special place in my heart (lol) in the sense that it is a combo of pieces that I have owned for forever, but never had a way to put together. Cailin got me the yellow scalloped skirt when she was out thrifting – maybe a year ago. The shirt was just waiting for turtle necks to make a comeback and the tights were picked up five years ago while studying abroad in London.

Chunky Chenille Sweater

BY TARA BURKE

Nothing says comfortable like a chenille sweater! I have a few in my closet from the actual 90s, but this one I got thrifting. Chenille has made a huge comeback this year and is being sold by practically every brand, but these sweaters have also been sitting in thrift stores everywhere waiting for the style to come back, so I’d definitely recommend stopping by your local spot before shopping at a big name retailer.

Embroidered Bomber Jacket

BY TARA BURKE

Bomber jackets are just the best for an effortlessly cool look. I got this flower embroidered one from Target and what makes it even better is that it’s sweater material! It is literally the comfiest thing and is so soft.

Autumn Florals

BY TARA BURKE

Don’t put away your floral clothes yet! You can style them in so many ways to make them work for fall like wearing a fun pair of tights, pairing them with boots or adding a chunky sweater and hat. I also like wearing florals that are in muted colors during the cooler months and that was exactly what I did for this look.

Feelin’ Like Fall

BY TARA BURKE

Fall fashion is here y’all and we’re loving it as usual. It’s time to bring out the beanies and boots, but there are always a few hot days that sneak into October, and this particular day was one of them. I thought it was the perfect opportunity to wear this orange vintage skirt that I borrowed from Cailin’s closet.

Flouncy Skirts & Wrap Tops

BY TARA BURKE

Who doesn’t love a skirt that you can twirl around in?! This skirt is so fun and representative of its designer, Betsey Johnson. Betsey Johnson was one of my favorite designers when I was younger because everything she makes is so crazy fun and unique, and I was in my wear anything but the ordinary stage – haha! I still love how bold her pieces are, so when I found this gem while thrifting I definitely scored. To finish the look I paired it with a simple black wrap top and some strappy heels.
