Hi Minxies! We hope you and your loved ones had a lovely Mother’s Day weekend. We are sending love to all the mama’s out there! Now, nothin’ comes close to a floral maxi dress for Summer. This maxi dress from Cotton Candy LA is perfect for an outdoor wedding – a simple ceremony at dusk and then dancing the night away. This silhouette is perfect for the occasion and the fabric is soft and comfortable for the all-day occasion. After the ceremony, we move to the dance floor! These wedge mules from Seychelles are quick + easy to kick off so you wont miss a moment of the Cha-Cha-Slide. For all occasions, the Minxies have got you covered!

Connect the Dots

The name of the game this is Spring is… wait for it!…RUFFLES!! This trend has been popping up everywhere and we are loving it! The ruffle trend hasn’t ever really fall off the grid – it just goes in and out of subtlety throughout the seasons. This detail stands out nicely with the Bardot-style or peasant top or even as some added interest on a pair of socks. Traffic People incorporates this ruffle trend beautifully in sleeves this maxi dress. This piece is a total show stopper and conversation starter, while still not being completely over the top. At Minx, we love on-trend pieces and even more when trends are used in a way that makes them totally timeless.

Seal the Deal

May has arrived! Summer is fast approaching, but we love getting to sit still and breathe in the Spring breeze just as much. Perfect for these transitional months are classic staples like this striped midi-dress from Monteau. Not only do we love the price point, but we love how effortlessly it can be incorporated into any style + look. This dress really is the perfect pallet for fine-tuning to your personal tastes. While these red Seychelles sandals add an element of drama and color to the look – we can totally see this with some great high top sneakers, classic black loafers, and anything in between.

What Would Jane Do?

Hi Spring! The Minxies are thrilled you’ve arrived! The time has come for strolls in the park, outdoor picnics, riverside get-togethers, Easter celebrations, weddings galore- and so, so much more! And believe us, we are READY. Needing that staple piece to seamlessly guide you through all of your Springtime events? Two words: Susana Monaco. Now, if you’ve been with us for awhile this shouldn’t come as a surprise. We love the sturdy, yet extreme comfort of the fabric used in all her pieces. The fit is incomparable and these pieces are made to hold their shape through many, many wears. This lilac color is the epitome of Spring to us! Its pastel and bright, yet can still be styled as a neutral if that’s more of your color pallet. Grab a light layer for those crisp mornings and cooling breeze, and you’ll be totally set for whatever comes your way this season.

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)!

S.O.S

Sometimes with fashion and putting together an outfit outside of your routine uniform, it means putting together pieces you wouldn’t think would go together. Utilizing different textures and fabrics within the same look adds interest and depth. We are loving this look styled with a chunky knit sweater and lovely emerald skirt. While it may not be instinctual to have these two items together, you can see these opposites really play off each other in creating a cohesive look. If you’re trying out this trend for the first time, keeping each piece in the same color family may help add some comfort and congruence. Too cold for bare legs? Add some tights or a neutral sock and you are weather-ready!
