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!
