Nothing gets much cuter than this adorable top.

All right, I take it back. Carly is way cuter! 

I’d like to introduce our newest sales associate at the Village Gift Barn! Carly O’Neal is not only adorable, but she is also incredibly fun to work with. She brings a lot of energy to our team, and we are excited to have her on board with us! To break her in the “Gift Barn” way, we put her in an awesome outfit and brought the cameras out. 

Carly is wearing a free and flowing top by FreeWay Apparel that is delicately designed with loads of detail. There are various prints and crochet ribbing throughout, and a baby doll style that gives the piece a little extra flow. We love how this top is so unpredictable and unique

When choosing bottoms to pair with it, we wanted to go with something besides denim, because that would be the safe and obvious choice. Black was very cute but looked too dark for spring. We decided that this olive green skinny by Free People was the perfect pick. Of course, denim and black are good choices if you’d like to stay in the box a bit, but if you want to do something a little bit different and creative, this look is awesome!

We added the bold, beaded bronze necklace to make a big statement. Because the top is so full of color and pattern, we chose a necklace that would stand out. A smaller piece would blend in unless you chose to wear it higher on the neck. 

The Shiraleah bag we paired with this outfit is so much fun! The studs and fringe make it stand out from the crowd and really make a statement. From the previous boutique post, you might think we are obsessed with studs and fringe. The truth is...WE ARE!!! But we will soon include outfits that are more subtle too! We wanted to keep the bag neutral because, although it is amazing, we didn’t want to detract attention from the top. 

We had a lot of fun with Carly putting this outfit and shoot together. This is just the beginning of seeing her pretty face!

Enjoy & stay tuned for our next boutique post!
