Summer Inspo



The summer season has us craving salty air, beachy waves, and looks that are classic and clean. We love to incorporate pops of color this time of year whether it's in a solid or citrus print.  White eyelet everything is all we want to bathe ourselves in!  Whether you're dressed head to toe for an occasion or spending countless days soaking up sun don't skimp on the details... add a special statement piece of jewelry, amp up your beach tote game, try a new bright hue and rock the top knot [lord knows, in this heat it's the only thing that helps tame the mane!] What summer trends are inspiring you to step outside of your "fashion" comfort zone?

Love, Poppy

 

We really love our "statements" (as we call our most treasured accessories)!  No matter what we are wearing, we love creating our "LOTD" by just adding our favorite pieces to our outfit depending upon whatever mood we are in. So when we find a new jewelry designer we get all giddy and excited to share with our customers not only the new designs and styles, but the "story" behind the brand.  Handmade and from the heart is always special and makes your collection all the more uniqueWhen we met sales rep Laken with Love, Poppy in Dallas last week we were instantly drawn to her southern accent, charm and her excitement to tell us about the creation of Love, Poppy and how the company has evolved. We wanted to share a bit about the company with you. We are very excited to be carrying this new designer and we hope you'll pop in soon to check it out!
Xx,


 

 

 

 

 

Love, Poppy’s Story

Mississippi-based designer Chelsea McIntosh launched Love, Poppy in the fall of 2013. Love, Poppy started with just one store in Starkville, Mississippi, but has quickly grown to be featured in 300+ stores nationwide. Love, Poppy specializes in handmade bracelets, necklaces and earrings. Jewelry designs are driven by current fashion trends and Chelsea's own style, while maintaining an affordable price point and using quality materials.

Why Love, Poppy?

The company name has deep-rooted meaning with fond memories intertwined. Chelsea was very close to her grandfather, Bud "Poppy" Jennings, who was a mailman for over 25 years. Because of her strong relationship with him, she wanted to honor Poppy through her company in some form or fashion. The "Love, Poppy" branding and logo sustains his memory by including Chelsea's name for her grandfather and honoring the profession where he spent many of his days. The logo's cursive lettering was chosen to resemble a signature in a representation of the many letters that must have passed through her grandfather's hands over the decades. This gives a special tribute to this cherished man and his career.

Love, Poppy Gives Back

Love, Poppy is proud to support Reclaimed Project. Focusing on orphan care and adoption, Reclaimed works to directly impact the underserved and unclaimed. James 1:27 (NIV) says "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." In addition to awarding domestic and international adoption grants, they work to generate sustainable job creation in each community where they have a presence, from orphan care centers in southern Africa to community-based efforts in the Mississippi Delta.

Salty Summer Days






It's that time of year! Days are longer, hotter and dripping with the itch to stay in the pool! Each summer we tend to favor a new taste and put our cocktail crafting skills to the test. Naturally, we switch from our spring fave pinot gris to summer water, but we always like to experiment with fresh fruits and locally distilled vodka. Currently we are loving The Cookie Rookie's Grapefruit Salty Dog. It's light, refreshing and so easy to whip up. Absolutely perfect for a backyard BBQ or afternoon at the beach or pool. (For us, there need not be any special occasion!) [recipe below]






Enjoy!

Xx,

  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed red grapefruit juice
