B Sure Its B-Sharp

Whenever you can combine affordability with comfort + style, its a no-brainer. That’s what we love about our collection of B-Sharp. Their fabric is 96% bamboo and its extremely soft and light. We have tons of styles ranging from t-shirt dresses to maxi + midi dresses – even great tops, too! Ask any Minxie and you can be assured that she owns and loves at least one piece from this amazing brand.

Shift to Black

When in doubt, shifting back to those neutral tones and classic silhouettes can feel like the warm hug of familiarity and comfort! When using a neutral color pallet, feel free to experiment with new and different shapes and styles without feeling like you’re jumping too far out of the familiar. We fell in love with these square-toed slingback mules from Intentionally Blank, and while we no longer have them in store, this style is totally worth trying out! As much as we love trying new trends and styles, we appreciate Neuw Denim for keeping those classic looks in mind and we are thrilled to be getting more + more in the store from them (so keep your eyes peeled!)

Blooms

Now is the beloved time of year where we flirt with warmer weather and on most mornings you can hear a choir of birds from your window. Spring is definitely on its way, and what better way to welcome the season than with this gorgeous floral maxi dress! There’s not much better than a dress that can stand out on its own. We love the delicate floral pattern throughout- yet it still totally makes a statement! We juxtapose this colorful classic with this amazing fringe leather tote bag. Delicate, brass-toned jewelry really compliment the colorful print of this dress. With this look, you can effortlessly toss a little spring in your step (and your wardrobe)!

Draped

Do you ever feel like sometimes things just get complicated when they never really had to? Like making dentist appointments or getting our tires rotated, it’s actually so much simpler than we make it out to be with our procrastination and over-thinking. We say to ourselves, “it can’t be that easy!” Well, sometimes, it just is. Like in fashion and putting together an outfit for the day it’s easy to get lost in accessorizing or making the perfect combinations. Welcome the solution: the ROMPER! Yes! It’s comfortable, effortless, and completely eliminates any opportunity to over-complicate + over-think your outfit. These Everly Rompers are almost suspiciously comfortable (how can this be so easy?) and the neutral color and pattern allows you to add your own personal flare with shoes or jewelry. And it’s no secret that we love the Bardot off-the-shoulder trend right. Does anyone else think that the clavicle is one of the most underrated parts of the body? So pretty! So, how about just this once, you let it be this simple!

Make A Day of It

We hear it all the time – “I’m not a hat girl.” Or “I can ONLY wear skinny jeans.” Or “I just don’t want to draw attention to myself.” We understand having a reliable uniform and we understand the comforting feeling of wardrobe staples and go-to’s. In fact, they are an incredibly important part of building personal style. At the same time, its also easy to box ourselves into a comfort zone and start giving ourselves fashion rules that let us get away with self-deprecating thoughts and mantras. At Minx, we love gently encouraging our customers, and OURSELVES, to try something they never have (or have before and weren’t feeling at the time!) and start challenging these self-imposed fashion rules with empowerment being the ultimate goal. So –  toss on a hat, try out a bold print, or come grab that white button-down you’ve been eyeing that will always fit just right. Either way – we are here and we are in your corner!

Mosaic

The Minxies are loving unexpected layering pieces this season- like these Neuw Denim Overalls. Gone are the days of only associating overalls with memories of romping around in the garden as children or painting your kitchen walls the perfect shade of salmon. Here we have paired these dark-wash overalls with a simple white long sleeve and black ankle booties from Frye. What really ties the entire look together is this Tracy Reese Overcoat, adding interest and warmth without completely over-shadowing the understated foundation. And can we take a minute to completely process how beautiful this Matt + Nat Crossbody bag is?! For those who have never crossed paths with this glorious brand- all of their pieces are made from 100% recycled materials. This vegan line puts an entirely new spin on what it means to be ethical and, still, incredibly fashionable and timeless. Sometimes it pays off to stick your nose out and see if there are any new spins on well-loved classics like overalls and leather accessories. You may just be surprised!
