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.

bon voyage

Oh to have matching luggage! Nothing seems quite so chic as pulling up to the airport and unloading a playfully matching set of Orla Kiely luggage. Or let yourself dream and imagine catching that train in Paris, or taking that road trip to Santa Fe, or even packing for a long weekend in Hot Springs. *sigh* This is a layaway worthy splurge if I do say so myself.
