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!

Tangled up in blue.

Here’s another sheer tank, just waiting for you to dare to wear her.  This is warm-weather dressing at its best.  Breezy and light, you’ll be a happy girl in the hot summer sun.  Pair it with a coordinating cobalt bandeau, easy denim shorts and this pretty necklace by Ax + Apple.  Or for the shy types, try a solid cami and/or something high-waisted below.  Style this cool tank anyway you want!  You’ll be happy you did.

Sweet with a little edge

One might assume this dress was vintage if not for the edgy back detail of its flouncy chiffon skirt.  The sweet collar, sheer sleeves and fun punch of chartreuse make this little party dress a real treat!  Also available in sea foam green with black bow print and a black collar/back detail.

Shorts and tights done right.

Are you sick of the “it’s cold outside so I’m going to keep wearing jeans everyday” routine?  Try changing things up with a cute pair of shorts worn over tights or leggings.  A structured blazer grounds our printed navy shorts, and we’re loving this statement necklace by local designer, Seven Swans, to finish things off.  We also have these fab shorts in a light mint color-way (great with bare legs when the warm weather hits) and solid black.

Urban Natures

Fall is in full swing, so it’s time to layer up!  Toss this cozy sweater over a fun striped dress to add a layer of warmth as well as preppy coolness.  Then tuck leg warmers into these killer studded boots from Frye to add a little attitude as well as cozyness.  Finally top it all off with a piece from new-to-Minx jewelry line, Urban Natures.  The prices are reasonable yet all of the pieces feel special, incorporating natural elements like leafs, branches and blooms.  Perfect for gift-giving!

Never a Grey Day

You might already have this skirt from the first time we ordered it this spring.  We’ve been loving it ever since so we’re keeping it in stock through fall.  Ashley Buchanan’s hand-cut, vintage-inspired earrings seal this romantic fall look.  Just pop your favorite thick tights underneath this midi-length stunner and off you go!
