Do you ever look in your closet and your mind goes blank as to what to wear? We sure do. As a way to combat these outfit doldrums, we are kicking off a new series here on Style and Social dedicated to color combinations that you might not immediately pair together. For our first post, we’re taking a look at combining lilac and grey. Grey is such a versatile color, but we often resort to pairing it solely with black or white for a neutral look. Juxtaposing the hue with a pop of purple is an easy way to create a stand-out look. Here are a few pieces that are on the top of our fall wish list.

We also love the Tory Burch Serena sweater and LAFCO Lavender Iris Soap.

Summer Clutches

What is your favorite way to dress up an outfit? For us, a clutch is an easy way to add a pop of color and personality to any ensemble, day or night. Our favorite part? The petite size only allows for the bare necessities, and there’s something liberating about ditching your go-to tote for a small statement piece. Just throw in a bright lip color, breath mints, and your wallet essentials, and you’re ready for a night on the town.


A few other favorites:

- The Printed Priscilla Clutch from Tory Burch 

- Jimmy Choo’s CANDY Clutch

Cole Haan Parker Weave Envelope Clutch

We couldn’t be more thrilled that vacation season is in full swing. Trading in day-to-day responsibilities for some much needed R&R is an alluring thought, but it’s important to do plenty of planning ahead of time to make sure you get to your final destination with the proper attire.

Maybe you’re escaping the triple-digit-temperature of Dallas for a cooler climate, or you’re heading to more heat but with a beach in sight. Either way, you can find all of your packing needs here at Highland Park Village. We have all of your warm and cool weather essentials, from sandals and sunglasses to sweaters and scarves.

Happy packing!
