For those of you that don’t live in Kansas City; Baldwin is a quickly growing brand with KC roots that started in denim and has moved into ready to wear. My husband exclusively wears Baldwin denim, and I have a few pieces in my closet as well. It is fun to see a local brand grow and evolve over the years! They recently opened stores in Dallas and New York City.
I was excited to check out their new fall collection at the Standard Style & Baldwin store on the Country Club Plaza. This year they have incorporated color and even pattern into their ready to wear pieces! I of course was drawn to their beautiful neutrals like this “Olivia Sweater” in Buttermilk. Paired back to their high rise Lola Fit in Lancaster wash. This jean is super soft, and just relaxed enough without being too slouchy.
I accessorized with one of the newest bag styles from Clare V. this beautiful green leather bag with pink accents. I love that it has a shoulder strap, but you can also carry it with the little top handles. To keep the look casual, I went with some Golden Goose tennis shoes which are like a piece of art! This brand can only be found at Standard Style and Baldwin in Kansas City.
