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.

Corners

We’ve already covered in past posts our love affair with wearing white for summer. And this dress from English Factory is no exception. Today we really encourage you to take staples and trends that you know you love and suit you, and push the envelope just that much further. If you know you love a tunic shape on your body, pick up a great tunic with a cold-shoulder detail. Or perhaps you live in button-downs, find one with some leather paneling in the back or some lace elements. That’s what we love about English Factory – they take an approachable piece like a white dress and add elements to create an edgy, daring look. The tiered ruffles on the bottom on this dress immediately transport you to somewhere dreamy! And the tiny floral details are a nice take on a pattern that can sometimes be too busy or over-saturating. So, before summer ends, find your staple piece and then step it up a notch into somewhere a little more daring and unexpected. (Maybe that means less is more!) Whatever rings true for YOU. It’s a little scary at first, but the Minxies have got your back!

Crushed Blush

It’s no secret how much we (and the fashion world at large!) love this blush-y, rose-y shade of pink. Maybe we love how closely it matches a crisp glass of rose? Maybe we cant help but be swept up in the “millennial pink” trend? No matter how we got there – we sure our happy to incorporate more pink in our wardrobe. With this soft, pastel look we thought incorporating bold accessories and shoes would balance it nicely and add some interest. Don’t wait for an all-neutral look to add a pop of color – just pair pieces from the same color family and find a pair of statement shoes to really top it off. We love how these heels from Seychelles really stand out with the rest of this otherwise monochromatic look. So, millennial or not, we hope you feel encouraged to think pink this summer!

Tunnel Vision

The sneakers + dress trend: we officially are OBSESSED! This combo is perfect for summer and getting you from place to place without a lot of fuss. It appears that the “athleisure” trend is here to stay and while that doesn’t always translate to working at a boutique, for us this means finding ways to incorporate casual/athletic pieces with dresses and boutique fashion. This Paige dress perfectly fits into this trend. And we love simply changing up your shoes can create an entirely different vibe without having to put forth a lot of effort. Effortless is what we’re going for here. Have a dress you love and feel like it’s only good for weddings? Throw that on and pair it with your worn out sneakers, ankle socks, a denim jacket, some lapel pins and a backwards baseball cap and you are good-to-go! There’s your look. Have you experimented with the athleisure trend? We hope its here to stay!

Ah, Lazybones dresses. If you’re unfamiliar with this line, we suggest you run (not walk!) to the nearest computer and get to browsing! Lazybones is one of our favorite designers here @ Minx for obvious reasons. They are designed in Australia and use the most beautiful and soft fabrics for their dresses, slips, blouses, and textiles. The dresses we featured here marry illustrative fabrics with beautifully draped silhouettes that would suit any occasion + mood. Wearing a piece from Lazybones instantly transports you to a dreamy land far, far away – so come along for the ride!

Bye, Bye, Miss American Pie

Summertime is all about cookouts, lakeside vacations, fireworks, and a little USA pride! Memorial Day was earlier this week so why not continue the spirit and toss on some red, white, and blue?! Subtlety is key for holiday fashion. A red scarf or bandana is a classic homage to Americana imagery, while stall remaining on-trend! For maximum comfort, and staying on the classics theme, these vintage-inspired, denim skinnies from Neuw are absolutely perfect. And better yet, their fit and shape will last for many Summer celebrations to come!
