Courtney Toliver has been a long-time friend of ours; we've had the pleasure of working with her for various collaborations over the years. We couldn't think of a better match for our first design collaboration. Courtney's style is simple yet sophisticated - it's truly timeless!
We know you're going to love the Dainty Jewell's X Courtney Toliver capsule collection. Courtney has designed three new "Bella" dresses, one of our bestselling silhouettes and Courtney's personal favorite from our collection. We have a good feeling these beauties won't last long, so make plans to shop on release night! The collection releases August 1st at 10 PM EST at www.daintyjewells.com
If you don't follow Courtney on Instagram, do yourself a favor and follow along for all the lifestyle, decor, recipe and style inspo you could dream of (@courtneytoliver). We sat down with Courtney for a quick Q&A so that we all could get to know her better!
Tell us about yourself. What are some of your interests and hobbies?
I am a wife of an incredible, hard-working husband, and I have a dog who has quickly become my second favorite thing on this earth! I moved from Tulsa, OK to a small town in South Georgia in 2017 and quickly adjusted to the Southern lifestyle. I absolutely love where I live! I enjoy shopping, cooking, decorating, traveling, entertaining, and lately, I have been obsessed with reading.
How would you describe your personal style?
If I could use three words to describe my style, they would be: Classic, Feminine, and Effortless.
What is it about the “Bella style” that you love so much?
I love dresses that are easy and comfortable, yet are feminine and chic. The Bella style meets that criteria perfectly!
How would you describe this capsule collection? What inspired you to pick the prints/colors that you did?
I wanted three different prints that all portrayed my personal style, and I think they do a wonderful job. Each pattern can be worn with similar accessories, yet each of them can be paired with items to totally switch up the look and feel of the dress. For instance, I wore the brown floral dress with my black and white Veja sneakers once and absolutely loved the combo!
Which dress from the capsule collection is your favorite and why?
I would say the brown floral dress, the Athena, simply because it is a color that I am really loving at the moment, and I have worn that one the most!
We all love your picks and following you for inspo! Outside of clothes, what are some items you’re loving right now?
I mentioned it above, but BOOKS! I have never been a big reader, but that was my new year's resolution, and I am so glad I stuck to it! It may be a blessing and a curse, because, now, it tends to take up a lot of my time if I am not careful.
We love summer around here! What are some of your favorite things to do in the summer? We know you and Reggie will be going on lots of adventures!
I am a huge fan of water, whether it is the beach (as long as it isn't crowded), the lake, or my mother-in-law's fantastic pool! I have always loved swimming and all the water sports! There is also something so special about having summer dinner parties. I love them any time of year, but I especially love when we can grill, have tiki torches lit, and enjoy delicious food while having great conversations.
