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

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.

How to Wash a True Grit Pullover

An investment like this requires some extra TLC to keep it looking and feeling as soft and beautiful as possible.

How to Wash Your True Grit/Dylan Sherpa:

  1. Wash separately in cold water with regular detergent (no fabric softener, no bleach.)
  2. Line dry (do not heat dry.)
  3. Fluff with your fingers when dry.

You may see that your True Grit Sherpa Pullover is becoming matted in some areas where a seat belt has been worn or where backpack straps may lay. To help keep these areas fluffy and soft, we recommend using a boar bristle brush and gently brush the Sherpa on your pullover to make it not matted. Here are 5 easy steps to help bring your Sherpa pullover back to life!

How to Make Your True Grit/Dylan Sherpa Not Matted:

Step 1: Get a boar bristle brush. We went to our local drug store and found a boar bristle brush for $3.

Step 2: Lay your Sherpa pullover down on a flat surface.

Step 3: Use the boar bristle brush to gently brush the matted areas. We found brushing in multiple directions helped the matted areas most.

Step 4: After brushing the Sherpa, we used the back of the boar bristle brush and patted the Sherpa back into place.

College Outfit Essentials

Let me guess, it’s the week or two before school starts, you have all your school supplies and dorm room accessories ready to go but you haven’t even started packing your clothes yet. Because, let’s be honest, who wants to make that decision on what items to bring and what items you have to leave behind.  Well, I am here to make your packing experience a little easier, I have put together a top 10 closest essentials list that I know I wouldn’t be able to live without!

Top 10 Closet Essentials for College

  1. Sweaters
  2. Sweatshirts and pullovers
  3. Your favorite blue jeans
  4. Leggings
  5. A couple of dresses – A sassy, flirty dress and a casual t-shirt dress
  6. At least 5 pairs of shoes – tennis shoes, heels, booties, flats, slides/sandals and rain/winter boots
  7. Hats and Scarves – baseball caps, beanies and blanket scarves.
  8. Bralettes – 1 White, 1 Black and 1 of your favorite color
  9. At Least 7 nice shirts/blouses
  10. A few t-shirts

Dressing for fall is my favorite time of the year! I just love the sweaters and cozy scarves that come along with the colder temperatures. Unfortunately, for packing this makes it harder because usually fall clothing is bulkier and takes up more space. But don’t let that intimidate you, that means you just have to pick out your favorite pieces to take with you.

Piko Sweater Top

I started my list with sweaters, because I love a nice cozy sweater! I would say to pack at least 3 or 4 sweaters, two casual sweaters that matches everything and two statement sweater for going out in. My favorite statement sweater is a lace up sweater.

Sherpa Pullover

My next go item is a sweatshirt. On my lazy days, I just grab my sweatshirt and pair it with my leggings and just bum around campus. You can dress up your sweatshirt and pullover collection by adding a Sherpa pullover, these pullovers will be sure to keep you warm during that nice little walk from your dorm to class.

College Essentials

I know you have to have at least one pair of jeans that you just cannot live without. I know I have at least two. I would pack your favorite jeans and some leggings. You will be living in leggings during class and hanging out in the dorm! They are a must have!

Booties

Don’t forget about your best companions, your shoes. You’ll need at least one pair of tennis shoes and maybe a pair of nude heels that will match everything. Be sure to grab your favorite booties, and some slides or sandals to hang around the dorm in. I would also grab a pair of rain boots or winter boots for those wet and cold days this winter.

Scarves and Hats

When it comes to packing accessories, I would just limit it to hats, scarves and bralettes for the fall semester. Hats will eliminate all bad hair days! Pack at least one baseball cap and a neutral colored beanie. Last fall, my blanket scarf saved me! I would recommend packing at least one or two blanket scarves to keep you warm. My other favorite accessory is a bralette. They layer perfectly under any fashion top or sweater. I would recommend having at least one black and one white lace bralette to help add a little touch to your outfits this fall.

Everly Dress

When it comes to fashion tops and dresses, I wouldn’t pack too many. You will need some for those days that you want to dress up or go out with friends. But, you also want to make sure to leave room in your closet for new items that you will want to buy from the local boutiques near campus.

I know we all have our go to t-shirt that we like to lounge in and it’s okay to bring a few of those with you, but keep in mind that your t-shirt collection will expand during college. There’s always t-shirts being given away on campus and during events.

I hope this has helped you with getting ready for the fall semester and makes your transition into the new dorm less stressful. Just remember, you can always come home and visit during weekends and holidays to grab more clothes!

Trend Alert: Sherpa Pullovers and Vests

Sherpa for men and womenFALL IN LOVE WITH SHERPA

Dylan by True Grit

Introducing the item of the year from True Grit Clothing: sherpa Pullovers and Vests! These pullovers and vests are to die for! The ultra-plush fabric is perfect for the colder weather heading our way. The main question we receive about these hot items are regarding the sizing and the difference between True Grit and Dylan.

True Grit:

Built for men. True Grit pullovers are crafted with a squared hem and side slits. These men’s pullovers have an oversized fit and are perfect for layering. When men purchase True Grit pullovers, we recommend ordering their true size. For women ordering a True Grit pullover, we recommend ordering down one size for the perfect, slightly oversized fit.

Dylan by True Grit:

Dylan is the women’s brand made by True Grit clothing. The women’s Dylan pullovers have a slimmer fit and also feature side slits. Made in U.S. women’s sizing instead of junior’s, these pullovers are cut with an oversized construction. We recommend ordering your true size in these pullovers to receive the desired fit.

InVEST in Sherpa

The obsession continues! Stay extra cozy and layer up in sherpa vests this fall and winter. These vests pair perfectly over just about anything! For women, wear it over your favorite long sleeve graphic tee or dress up your vest by layering it over a Piko sweater. Men, you can be stylish too. Wear your True Grit vest over your favorite plaid shirt. For a more comfortable look, pair it over a Patagonia or The North Face hoodie. Don’t let the cold stop you, take on colder weather with sherpa this year!
