Whether you are looking for outfit inspiration or must-have accessories, Dash of Darling has it all, so be sure to check out Caitlin’s 5 must-have items below!
YSL Glossy Lip Balm: Every girl should have a favorite lipstick and YSL has my heart. Part lipstick part chapstick this stuff keeps my lips hydrated all day while leaving a pretty pink sheen. Personally I love "cool guava" because of it's pale pink hue, but they have great options if you're looking for a brighter or darker touch.
A chic pair of Sunglasses: Living in Arizona, sunglasses are a daily must, so having a classic and chic go-to pair is a must for me. Personally, I love these Celine beauties because of their classic shape and lighter tint. They go with everything so I can keep them in my bag for everyday use.
Madewell Jeans: Though I've been drifting towards flared jeans lately, I can't give up my favorite pair of skinny jeans. These high-risers from Madewell are so comfortable, and won't slip down your waist half way through the day (the worst).
A saddle bag: I can't imagine what I'd be carrying around if it weren't for my half-moon shaped saddle bags. When a tote is just too big but you want to go hands free, the saddle bag is the perfect size and shape for all of my needs. I'm especially loving Chloe saddles bags, and this leather "Marcie" is perfectly chic with a splash of bohemian.
A suede skirt: The seventies are coming back strong and my favorite groovy trend is the suede mini skirt. Though I sometimes shy away from short skirts because of my height (I'm 5'11), these A-line suede skirts are just so perfect for spring. You can wear them with OTK boots, booties, or even a good pair of flats. They're so diverse and super on trend.
