Tea Time

There’s something magical about cool mornings, birds chirping and breezy afternoons that make Springtime so dreamy. If we were to write a fairytale, it would most definitely take place in a far-away land that is always in a state of Spring. We were able to harness that magical dreaminess in this Traffic People lace maxi dress. The sky blue slip is included so while this dress may look fragile and delicately placed, it’s a piece you can toss on and be transported to your favorite fairytale. Something about pastels and gold thread that sends you right into the pages of a storybook. We decided to compliment the airiness of the dress by keeping accessories and shoes in the same pastel color-family. For those chilly, Spring evenings, a soft knit cardigan or cropped denim jacket would fit in effortlessly with this look.

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.

winter cluster

As the honey bees go into hybernation let your inner bee come out!  Strut your stuff in this super sexy body conscious get-up and don’t let the cold keep you huddled in your hive.

Interesting honey bee fact. “Honey Bees stop flying when the temperature drops down into the 50s. They stay inside their hive in what is called a winter cluster which means they get into a big huddle. There is no point to flying outside of the hive as there are no flowers in bloom, hence no pollen or nectar is available. The colder the temperature the more compact the cluster becomes.”
