Transitioning from Summer to Fall

September is just around the corner, which means that fall is almost here!

Since we are based in the Pacific Northwest, the Show Pony Boutique team spends a lot of time thinking about how to layer clothing. It’s a requirement based on the unpredictability of our weather! One of the trickiest times to dress for out here is fall: some days are sunny and warm, while others are dreary and wet. We’ve come up with a few solutions to help you prepare for either end of the weather spectrum for fall. Read on below!

It might seem counterintuitive, but a dress can be your best friend during the fall, especially if it’s a little on the longer side! Read more about our undying love of midi dresses here. By using a dress as your base for layering, you’re prepared for warmer bouts of weather while still being able to stay warm with the addition of tights, boots, long coats, denim jackets, scarves, and beyond!

Try styling your dress with the Prairie Underground Oversized Moto. This beautiful coat is thick and lined without appearing too heavy. The contrast between the pairing of a moto jacket with a floral dress can be quite intriguing too–a great way to mix up your usual attire!

What are some of your wet weather dressing tips? We’d love for you to share! Tell us in the comments!

Vacation Packing

Packing for travel can often seem daunting, or unpleasant at the very least. Knowing what to bring, what will pass TSA, and how to pack toiletries requires a little bit of planning. Luckily for you, we’ve got you covered! Read some of our #ShowPonyBoutique tips for travel packing below.

 

Don’t risk losing your favorite perfume bottle! Take this tiny roll on bottle instead.


Pants might seem like an obvious item to pack, but the Prairie Underground Denim Girdle pants are unique in the sense that they feel like pajamas! Don’t hassle over too-tight skinny jeans when comfort is within reach.

It’s easy to forget to pack the little things! Grab a pair of lightweight hoops, like these ones from Elysium.

Summer Accessorizing

Accessorizing during the summer can be a struggle: it’s hot and you don’t want to be weighed down! But with the right items, accessorizing can take your look from basic to amazing! Here is how we styled two completely different looks with some of the same accessories.

We love coordinating metals: here, we styled a look with matching sunglasses, earrings, and a necklace. The earrings definitely stole the show in this look, but because the other accessories are daintier, it wasn’t too much.

By adding a hat to this look, our model’s outfit became multidimensional.

How do you like to accessorize in the summer? Tell us below in the comments!

How to Have the Perfect Summer Picnic

Summer is the perfect time to have a picnic, especially in Seattle! As such, the Show Pony Boutique team has put together a little guide on how to have a lovely summer picnic. We Seattleites have to make the most of this amazing weather!

Photos by Tessa Barton

First, find some inspiration! We chose Tessa Barton’s picnic in Central Park. How could anyone resist those amazing colors?! Finding inspiration can help you plan your meal, outfit, colors, etc. Once you’ve settled on your vision, it’s time to pick an outfit!

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: we are crushing on gingham! Throw on your dress, and then…

…grab a messenger bag to throw all of your goodies in! Then, pick the location. Maybe you chose Gas Works Park, where you can watch the sunset.

Summer Prints 🌞🍉

For us here at Show Pony Boutique, few things say summer like a printed dress does. Luckily, we’ve had a huge influx of them from just about all of our lovely designers! Check out some of our favorites below. ✨

This dress is perfect for work, play, and travel. It’s combination of shirring and polka dots makes it flirty and fun. Grab a blanket and popcorn and attend an outdoor movie at Marymoor Park, Red Hook Brewery, or Peddler Brewing Company!

Gingham is making a comeback, and boy are we loving it! Make a statement in this sweet pattern wherever you go. Try packing a picnic one evening in this little number!

Another Show Pony favorite is this bicycle printed dress. The look is playful yet sophisticated, and can function in any setting.

Which of these looks are your favorite? Where would you wear them? Tell us in the comments below!

Our Favorite Prairie Underground Picks

Prairie Underground is one of our favorite lines to carry here at Show Pony Boutique. Based in Seattle, the company was founded upon the values of sustainability and empowerment.

“Prairie Underground is a populist apparel manufacturer committed to designing modern uniforms that evoke sensuality in daily self-expression. Every garment is made to be durable and adaptable. We’re committed to ensuring our garments are ecologically and ethically sustainable. These values are an essential consideration in any contemporary creation. We want to empower our customers to articulate their singularity while nurturing their bodies and the ecosystem.”

Not only do those values align with our own here at Show Pony, but Prairie Underground creates compelling and comfortable clothing. Look below to see some of our favorite items!

Arcade Pant in Black

Classic, chic and ultra-comfortable, Prairie’s new cropped culottes pant is made from conventional cotton with a roomy “paper bag” style elastic pull-on waist and deep side rectangle pockets. Why do we love it? Culottes pants are huge right now, and with good reason: they’re breezy yet tailored, and the length perfectly highlights your svelte calves while giving you the opportunity to show off your stylish shoes at the same time. Tuck a tank top in at waistband and head out the door!

Cloak Hoodie in Blue Suede

This hoodie is the answer to all of our prayers: —it’’s soft and comfy like any hoodie should be, but it has a tapered, feminine fit. Why do we love it? The atheleisure look is bigger than ever, allowing you to rock your most comfortable clothes without hitting the gym. Comfort is key, people.

Your Orbit Jersey in Beet

One of Prairie’s most winning styles is back this season in the same lightweight organic cotton fabrication from last fall for a softer, gentler drape and perfect for many seasons. The cozy, oversized cowl, large side pockets and fun, asymmetrical hem keep you thinking outside the box. Why do we love it? Once again, comfort comes into play. Stay cozy without looking lazy in this cowl masterpiece.
