Swing, Swing

We love it when an outfit can be striking and also carry you through many different activities of the day seamlessly. This sweet, floral crop top from Sadie + Sage paired with these high-waisted shorts can effortlessly take you from brunch in the morning, to running errands during the afternoon – all with a little help of a shoe and outerwear change. This crocheted kimono from Echo is a lovely, subtle statement that adds a touch of romance to your look. Feel free to wear it open as a duster, or even tied around for a great swimsuit coverup. For your afternoon activities, we switched out the kimono for a great cropped moto-jacket and some trusty sneakers. And just like that, you’re ready to hit the ground running without compromising your look.

You might not want to show this much skin on a daily basis, but for a poolside party or a hot night out, you’ll be well received and pleased with your bold fashion choices.  We love DV’s magenta Laci flats with this sheer tank and black lace high-waist shorts.  A handmade statement necklace from Portland jewelry line, Seaworthy, finishes this look with the perfect touch of bling.

Make waves in our new faves.

Make waves in some of our favorite new pieces from Angie, Shae and Seychelles.  Angie’s perfectly aqua, tulip-hemmed shorts hit a little high on the waist, and the pleats give them a sweet vintage feel.  Shae’s taupe and black striped cardigan is a must-have for cardi-collectors and stripe addicts alike.  Seychelles’ Freesia t-strap flats are some of the best we’ve seen this season, bringing this cool spring look together without overdoing it!
