Bold, Free & Classy : 4th of July Style

As our media culture and social feeds fill up our lives with the over saturated red, white and blues this week, I have decided to go a different route with the style blog as we approach the 4th of July. Sometimes it is not all about being the loudest person at the party or having the flashiest "American" outfit on, but how much you understand the reason for the celebration in the first place. 

So my fresh take on the patriotic trend, which is oh so saturated this time of year, is to actually tone it down a bit. Trust me, it is possible to remain bold, free ... and classy. So save the reds for your lips, nails, and watermelons this year as we have replaced it with creamy tans and and dreamy combos to tap into classic americana.

Still needing a fix of stars and stripes? Yeah we like them too. That is why Sundown has vintage inspired Americana items and totes that are hand made in the U.S.A. In fact, all of our goods are hand made in the U.S.A and our materials are sourced from America as well!

So have a great holiday week everyone, and don't forget to buy american made year round and support your favorite small businesses.

Currently Loving: Silk Shorties!

There is something very chic about a woman dressing up a pair of shorts with heels and what better ones to choose than a pair of extra comfy, drawstring silk shorts. They are super comfortable and with the drawstring ones you can eat all you want! Just kidding. (Ok, not really.)  As for your cutoffs, don't  trade them in completely. They are classic, awesome and a wardrobe essential in my book. Think about these as a sweet little addition to your summer wardrobe and a solution to a clothing crisis if an occasion calls for dress casual when its toasty out.

So if you are looking for something different than another over destroyed, dip dyed, or studded pair of shorts like these ...

Try some of these classy silk shorties to switch it up a bit! They don't need to be silk, just find something in a lightweight fabric that drapes nicely and has a nice finished hem.
