Blogger Love: Charleston Date in Hampton Park

01/09/17

We love Liz Martin, aka Charleston Weekender, and her fabulous ideas for making every day feel more like the weekend. She’s always up to something fun so we were excited to partner with her on sharing a fun date idea in a beautiful Hampton Park in Charleston, SC.  With a bike, one of her Turkish towels, and some a cotton stem bouquet, we were ready for a picnic in the park. See all of the photos on her site.

No-Sew Fabric Wreath Tutorial

12/19/16

With the holidays here and an ever-growing collection of fabric scraps we decided to create a winter Borough fabric wreath and share the process. There’s always so much DIY-magic in the air around Christmas. This is a fairly simple project and can be adjusted to fit with any season or holiday. Happy crafting!

 Materials:

  • 14” foam wreath
  • Scraps of fabric to cover the wreath
  • Pinking shears
  • Pins
  • Hot glue gun
  • Festive adornments  

 Step 1:

Measure your foam wreath to determine the sizes of your fabric strips. We went with a 3.5” width. Then trim your fabric to size with pinking shears.

Step 2:

Lay out your fabric strips around the wreath to determine placement. Your last piece will not overlap, which is where you’ll want to place your additional decorations.

Step 3:

Pin the first piece of fabric in place, overlapping at the back of the wreath. Secure the fabric strip with your hot glue gun. Continue hot gluing the strips around the wreath.

Step 4:

Lay out and assemble your adornments, then hot glue them to the wreath covering the last fabric strip. Let the glue dry, then admire!

The Perfect Flats

08/10/16

We love a great flat and don't think you have to trade style for comfort. With so many styles you can find the perfect flat for any outfit- casual to fancy! We rounded up our favorite flats- perfect for running errands, grabbing a cocktail, or navigating cobblestone streets during a weekend getaway (we learned the hard way heels and cobblestones don't mix). See our faves below, featuring everything from sequins to palm trees-all lovely paired with a Borough dress:

How to Make a STATEMENT in a Shift Dress

07/09/16

Borough Charleston shift dresses paired with statement necklaces

We adore a shift dress with a statement necklace! That bold pop of fun hitting at just the right place beneath a scoop neckline is outfit perfection. Sometimes though, you just can’t find the right accessory. We’ve all had that moment standing in front of the mirror surrounded by necklaces announcing “Too long!” “Too short!” “Too bulky!” “Too delicate!” That’s why we decided to make it easy and pair our favorite statement necklaces with our Borough prints, taking out the guesswork and leaving you with a fabulous outfit.

Check out our necklace pairings (all under $70) and make a statement in your shift dress!

The yellow shade of this necklace is what immediately drew us in! The edgy color is the perfect balance for the feminine crystals and makes the lemons on our Oyster Roast print really pop! Brace yourself for all the compliments!

With Summer around the corner it's time to start accessorizing your shift dress for those hot sunny days. We love a shift dress topped off with a summer hat.

We've rounded up some of our favorite summer hats to top off your Borough dress this summer! From pom poms and tassels to palm trees and sequins- these hats have it all!
