Sprout

With many activities becoming lake-side and ending with a quick ride down the French Broad River, its important to consider how easily your look can go from indoors to outdoors without factoring in a complete outfit change. Perhaps that means finding the perfect summer sandal that is not only eye catching but also incredibly comfortable and versatile. We have definitely found that in our Pons sandals! Made by hand in Spain since 1945, these ethically-minded sandals are created out of recycled materials and all-natural leather. We encourage you to learn more about the history of these sandals on their website and come try a pair on for yourself! Toss on your go-to summer dress or cover-up and soak up as much summer sun as possible.

Crushed Blush

It’s no secret how much we (and the fashion world at large!) love this blush-y, rose-y shade of pink. Maybe we love how closely it matches a crisp glass of rose? Maybe we cant help but be swept up in the “millennial pink” trend? No matter how we got there – we sure our happy to incorporate more pink in our wardrobe. With this soft, pastel look we thought incorporating bold accessories and shoes would balance it nicely and add some interest. Don’t wait for an all-neutral look to add a pop of color – just pair pieces from the same color family and find a pair of statement shoes to really top it off. We love how these heels from Seychelles really stand out with the rest of this otherwise monochromatic look. So, millennial or not, we hope you feel encouraged to think pink this summer!

Chin Up

We hope you all had a wonderful Fourth of July full of BBQs, fireworks, and those you love around you! Speaking of holidays, whether its before or after Labor Day – there’s no denying how fantastic a crisp white dress is for summer! We love this three-quarter inch sleeve, embroidered dress from Lazybones (and also obsessed over them in a previous post, if you’re curious!). Wearing white can be an excellent way to incorporate neutrals that maybe don’t get as much love during the colder seasons. White tshirts, white shorts, sneakers that used to be white as some point – its all good for this summer! It also creates a beautiful pallet for mixing with accessories and shoes that speak to your personal style. From patterns, to textures, to neons, a white style foundation can handle it all! Happy styling!

Post Up

We recognize that your news feed is being saturated with music festival outfits – but we would be doing summer a massive injustice without honoring this popular warm-weather activity. Whether you’re camping over a long weekend or just stopping by for the night, two things remains constant: comfort and trendy! This linen shift dress from Loveriche nails it! The pattern is eye catching without too many bells and whistles getting in the way of your free range of motion for grass-stomping and hula-hooping. While its easy to think that summer music fests are a bralette and high-waisted shorts only-zone: we absolutely beg to differ. Shift dresses are perfect because they’re cool in the hot weather and take no time to toss on with your favorite pair of sneakers or sandals. 100% would recommend.

Follow Suit

Have you ever seen an outfit and immediately Rihanna comes on in your mind singing, “where have you been all my li-li-li-life?!” Because this is it for us. This top + bottom set from Very J encompasses everything we are loving this summer: resort-wear, tropical patterns, two-piece set, bow detail. Its got it all! Sometimes rompers can be tough in the summer and doesn’t always work for every body type and proportions. A two-piece set is a great alternative with similar vibes. Not feeling the sneakers? This would pair perfectly with gladiator sandals, or slip on flats. We recommend keeping the shoes and accessories minimal so that this set can shine! So when you think to yourself, W.W.R.D (What Would Rihanna Do?), she would most definitely get her hands on this set.

Tunnel Vision

The sneakers + dress trend: we officially are OBSESSED! This combo is perfect for summer and getting you from place to place without a lot of fuss. It appears that the “athleisure” trend is here to stay and while that doesn’t always translate to working at a boutique, for us this means finding ways to incorporate casual/athletic pieces with dresses and boutique fashion. This Paige dress perfectly fits into this trend. And we love simply changing up your shoes can create an entirely different vibe without having to put forth a lot of effort. Effortless is what we’re going for here. Have a dress you love and feel like it’s only good for weddings? Throw that on and pair it with your worn out sneakers, ankle socks, a denim jacket, some lapel pins and a backwards baseball cap and you are good-to-go! There’s your look. Have you experimented with the athleisure trend? We hope its here to stay!
