BEHIND THE SCENES: RELLEKE FARMS PHOTO SHOOT

Women's Outerwear

Have you ever wondered what our fabulous photo shoots look like from Behind the Scenes? Well, this post is your free ticket in! You’ll get to meet our models from that day, and see some of our favorite moments from our fall photo shoot. We got to meet cute farm animals and show off some of our favorite new fall and winter outerwear, all in one day! Here’s how it all happened:

Glik's Fashion Photo ShootWe started out the day by packing up all we needed inside our Glik’s Van! This helped us to transport all of the fashionable items that we needed to show off during our shoot, and it also worked as a helpful and discreet changing room for our models.

 

Glik's Fashion PhotographerOur fabulous photographer, Alexis Jones, made sure to get some quick pictures of our door-buster items at the beginning of our time at Relleke Farms. She always makes sure to get the best angles in order to show off our products in the best way! Here she’s photographing our favorite, fleece-lined leggings!

 

Unisex Sherpa Pullovers Not soon after that, our models arrived! Since we were going for a fall-themed photo shoot, they decided that they absolutely HAD to have a cute pumpkin pic to start off the day! (I think it’s adorable, don’t you?) And even though the weather started out a little chilly, we made sure to keep them warm and cozy in these sherpa pullovers.

 

CC Beanie Headbands for WomenMeet one of our female models, Randi Smith! She always brings her bright and peppy personality to our photo shoots, and her upbeat nature brings every single picture to life! She looked great in this Spyder pullover and CC Beanie Headband combo, and we absolutely can’t get enough of her positive vibes.

 

Men's ShirtsNext, we would like to introduce you to our most recent male model, Evan Howard! His goofy personality is masked in this photo, but he had us laughing all day long. He started off by modeling some of our seasonal shirts for men, and we loved the sunglasses he brought to accessorize with his outfit!

 

Glik's Fall FashionThese two made our photo shoot so much fun! We wanted to get creative with our surroundings, so we were thankful that they agreed to pose by this colorful tractor. (They were probably laughing here about how much we were showing our true “Midwestern” side by wanting to pose by the farm equipment.)

 

Tall Boots for WomenYou may not know this, but we go to lengthy measures in order to make sure that we keep our products in top-quality condition during these photo shoots. Here you can see one of our social media team members, Candice Greene, carrying Randi on her back so she wouldn’t have to walk around in the dirt with her fabulous tall boots on. Candice had also taken the time before our shoot to put protective tape over all of the soles of the shoes we brought. This way, we were able to keep these beautiful boots dirt-free!

 

Simply Southern T Shirts for WomenSince we were at the farm, we absolutely needed to incorporate the animals! Randi found a cute little piglet friend to match her adorable Simply Southern T-Shirt. It was pretty much love at first sight for all of us with this little piggy!

 

Womens The North Face OutfitAnother adorable animal friend we made was this goat! As soon as we walked towards the critters, Randi made sure to let us know that goats were her favorite. So we just HAD to have her pose by them in her The North Face outfit. This one goat wanted to pose for the camera and it worked out for a great shot! Aren’t they so cute together??

 

Sherpa Pullovers for Men and WomenThank you for joining us Behind the Scenes of this fall photo shoot! Randi, Evan, and our entire Marketing Team hope that you enjoyed this insightful look at how we create our images, and we hope to share future fashion photo shoots with you as well.

Until then, make sure to check out all of our newest fashion at gliks.com!

Back to School Styles: Fall Preview 2018

Back to School Styles: Fall Preview 2018

It’s almost August, which means it’s time to start thinking about back to school shopping! I know some of you may be thinking, “UGH, do we have to?!” But, back to school shopping can be super fun since it’s the time when you get to start picking out your new fall wardrobe and be oh-so stylish walking down the halls. Keep reading to check out our top picks for Fall 2018!

cardigan

The most staple of all fall outfits is this look. It is great for almost any occasion, and can be SO versatile since there are SO MANY ways to achieve this look! If it were up to us (and this heat wave would go away) we would be wearing a cozy cardigan every single day. Finding a cardigan, or sweater, that is made with a textured knit fabric is the way to go! It gives your look a pattern, while still wearing neutrals.

Denim is also a staple piece to stock up on for fall. As the temps start to drop, you will need a few core styles of denim jeans to rotate through the year! Kancan Jeans and Flying Monkey Jeans are two of our favorite brands that we swear by.  They offer different styles and fits, while all being so comfortable and sculpt to your every move. One of our go-to looks is denim on denim.  This put together look can be achieved by wearing your favorite denim jeans (or jean skirt) and pairing it with a jean jacket or button up chambray top.  To let your personality shine, wear a graphic tshirt underneath or add your unique accessories to add a pop of color.

Shoes

Now, you can’t talk back to school shopping without mentioning the best part: NEW SHOES! Finding neutral booties is a great investment in your fall wardrobe.  They are so great since you can easily dress them up and down, while still remaining comfortable throughout your day.  A few of our favorites are from Qupid Shoes, Soda Shoes, and City Classified Shoes! Also, you can’t forget about your new cool sneakers to complete your athleisure looks for days when you really don’t have the time or energy to be completely glam. 🙂

cc and sherpa

If you haven’t hopped aboard the sherpa train, or if you’ve been living under a rock and have no idea what a sherpa pullover is, now is DEFINITELY the time.  Sherpa is huuuuuge for fall, and now is the best time to stock up on your favorite styles! (PS. These are amazing Christmas gifts.) You never have to worry about being freezing while sitting in class, or putting on a bulky winter coat again.  They are literally so warm and cozy, you’ll never want to take it off! A great pair to sherpa are beanies! CC Beanies are our favorite beanies to wear when it gets cold.  They offer a variety of colors and styles, that you’ll be sure to find one that suits your needs.

Fall Fashion Finds Under $50

fall fashion under $50

Another season, another chance to vamp up your wardrobe!

With the official beginning of fall coming in a few short weeks, it’s time to find pieces you’ll want to wear all season long. Thankfully, bringing new life to your closet doesn’t mean you have to break the bank. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite must-have pieces that are all under $50. Feel free to do a little happy dance.

It’s time to bust out the booties! There are two major factors to consider when buying a new pair of ankle boots: color and comfort. Taupe, black, and brown are three colors that you’ll get a ton of wear out of this season and next.

As the temperatures drop, you’ll need a good pair of jeans in your rotation. KanCan Jeans are not only affordable, but they also fit like a dream! At only $39 for most styles, consider adding a pair of mid-rise and low-rise  skinnies to your denim collection.

Nothing says fall fashion like a Piko top! There are so many colors and styles to choose from at Glik’s, but this burgundy tunic is one of my favorites for autumn.

Is it really even fall if you’re not wearing a vest? My all time favorite quilted vests are from Thread and Supply. The quality of these vests is amazing for the price point and the selection of colors makes it impossible to choose just one!

 It’s not all about bundling up this season, especially at the start. I love this olive green dress from Blu Pepper. The lace up neckline is perfectly on-trend, plus it’s a style steal at only $39.

Lastly, accessories are just as important as your outfit itself. My favorites for fall include CC Beanies, a cute plaid scarf, a lace bralette, and a black choker necklace. Any of of theses pieces will instantly elevate your #ootd.

Gift Ideas for Last Minute Shoppers

Can you believe there are only a few shopping days left until Christmas?  Me either!  I hate to say it, but I still have a few people to buy for. Nothing like waiting till the last minute I guess. Here are a few last minute gift ideas, for guys and gals, if you procrastinated like I did 🙂

1.  Stance Socks. You may not have liked getting socks for Christmas when you were a kid, but having fun and colorful socks is a must have accessory this holiday season! Stance socks come in a ton of colors and patterns. They have a seamless toe and deep pockets for your heels.  They are the perfect gift for that guy or gal on your list!

2.  Scarves.  Who doesn’t love a cozy scarf when it’s chilly outside?  Scarves are great gift ideas for any guy or girl on your list.  Scarves are one size fits all that can be worn with or without their coat.

3.  Beanies.  Beanies can be worn as a trendy accessory or to keep warm when the temperature drops.  Guys and girls alike will love receiving these as gifts.  They come in a variety of brands, colors and patterns. CC beanies are my favorite!

4.  North Face Apex Etip Gloves:  Not only will these gloves keep their hands warm, they won’t have to take them off to use their phone or other electronics with a touch screen.  They also offer wind protection and have a water resistant finish.  I have given these as gifts before and they were a big hit!

5.  Gifts-in-a-jar.  If you are wanting to take the DIY route, gifts-in-a-jar are perfect.  They are simple, inexpensive and fun!  For the gal on your list, you can make a Comfy Cozy gift jar.  Add hot cocoa mix, marshmallows, candy canes and a couple of mugs and you are all set.  You could even add a scarf and gloves to make it even cozier :). For the guy on your list:  a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.  Fill a jar full of all his favorite snack foods:  chips, dip, candy, trail mix and maybe even a few bottles of soda.  I can guarantee any guy would love to receive this gift idea!
