Fall into Leather

This fall, we are loving all the leather goods that are flying into Ladybird's nest. From shorts to silk tops with hints of soft leather... we have the perfect looks that are great for any occasion this season!


We love this dark brown collarless leather jacket by BB Dakota. It has a lovely slimming fit and is great over this new Paper Crown dress! Or keep it casual with your favorite tee and levi's jeans.

Leather Tops
We are so obsessed with the leather tops that are in at the store! There is much you can do with these structured pieces. Wear them back to colored or printed denim. Perfect for any lunch date or evening wear!

First top: French Connection
Second Top: Leyendecker


We love these sweaters from Waverly Grey! Not only are they a great fit but we love the detail of leather pieces throughout the sweater. 

Leather Shorts

Shorts aren't just made for spring and summer. Show off those legs in the fall and winter with these soft leather BB Dakota shorts! Throw on a comfortable sweater and boots for a casual look. To transition to a more evening look, add your favorite blouse and wedges. Great with tights on a colder day too!


Leather leggings?! Oh my! This is one of our favorite pieces from Stella & Dot this fall so far! It still has the stretchy comfortable feel to it. With symmetrical cut pieces of leather blended into the leggings. Our favorite way to wear it is with a oversized sweater and boots or a loose blouse and heels for a more trendy look!

Ways to wear cut off shorts!

A staple piece in a ladybird's wardrobe is hands down a pair of Levi's vintage cut off jean shorts! Always a "go to" item and so easy to wear. These shorts look great back to a fun printed blouse to your favorite crisp white tee shirt. Here are some of our favorite ways to dress up or down your Levi's shorts!

To make a pair of cut offs "less casual - more dressy" is very simple. Keep the white tee you've got on... just add a blazer! Keep it simple with a navy or black blazer, or jazz it up with a colored one (even neon). Add a pair of strap heels and your favorite clutch = hot dinner date? night out in the town with the girls? What ever the occasion may be... this is always a great look to fall back on!

Layers, layers, layers, and more layers! We love this breezy summer look. Layering in the summer doesn't have to mean heavy either. Light scarves and a cardigan is perfect for a more cool evening summer night.

We LOVE the "high low" cut tops. They always look great with a pair of cut off jean shorts. Add lots of jewelry or throw a tote with it. It is the ultimate casual look.

Loose fitted and colored blouses always look great with a pair of cut offs. Especially if your shorts are a little more on the tighter and shorter side. If that is the case, it shows class to have something a little looser as your top. We also really love the pop of studs on the shorts to show a little more edge to your look. Add a few of your favorite bracelets and a pair of flats or sandals. Makes this look appropriate for a day time or evening look!

Over-sized sweaters is always a great way to show off your levi's shorts. Especially if you are aiming towards a comfortable and casual look for the day. Chunky rings and bracelets always add more interest to this look as well. This can be worn with a pair of sandals, flats, or even a pair of vans. To make this more of an evening look, add a pair earrings, animal printed clutch and wedges!

Fun printed tops is always a great way to add fun to your cut off shorts look. Especially if an animal print! This can be worn with a over-sized bag and flats for the day, or a bright colored clutch and heels for the evening.

Adding texture to your cut off shorts look is always great! Especially a sequin jacket! A pair of heels and bright colored clutch, this is the perfect look for a night out with your best friends!

Don't own a pair of vintage Levi's shorts yet? Come visit us at the store!

31 Bits Jewelry

During the summer of 2007, Kallie Dovel traveled to Uganda and spent quality time with a group of women that made paper beads. Kallie was fascinated with the hand made jewelry as well as the stories and lives of these women who have gone through so much. Kallie brought home to the U.S. a big box of jewelry these women hand crafted and shared the stories with her friends. When she graduated in August of 2008, Kallie and her friends took a trip to Uganda and started 31 Bits. There are now over 90 designers in 31 Bits. Each that have a unique story and are given the chance to better their lives.

Here at Ladybird, we really loved the story that Kallie has told and not only want to be part of helping, but we really love the line of colorful pieces! Here are some of our favorites we got in this week.
