Ark & WHOAH

Happy Spring! Monday was the official first day of Spring, but to be honest we have been enjoying the spring-like temperatures and showers for awhile. And with Spring officially among us comes Spring weddings, holidays, and special occasions. We love that this dress from Ark & Co seems to have the fresh buds of spring woven into every inch. This dress can stand alone at any outdoor get together and depending on shoes and accessories can easily be dressed up or down. We love the hint of metallic thread that catches the light (because trust us, you’re going to want to twirl in this one!)

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!)

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!

Top Coat

Need a quick style elevation? Look no further than a little fur trim. The (Faux) fur trim trend is definitely one we can get behind. It is commonly thought that fashion tends to repeat itself, and fur accents + details are no exceptions. Find it on this luxurious Traffic People coat, dangling from your tote bag or purse, and even lining the hood of your favorite puffer jacket- this subtle statement helps with staying warm, adding interest, all while remaining classy.

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!

Pretty in Mink Pink

As the winter chill unpredictably creeps in,  find clever ways to layer up without loading yourself down. Nobody likes to walk into the room and have to hold onto stacks of outer layers that are no longer necessary in heated space. Find a long sleeve crop top or your favorite sweater, and throw it on top of a dress to add some warmth without sacrificing your shape and silhouette. And when winter settles in for the season, say ‘good-bye’ to bare legs and seamlessly introduce some tights into this look.
