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!

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!

Seal the Deal

May has arrived! Summer is fast approaching, but we love getting to sit still and breathe in the Spring breeze just as much. Perfect for these transitional months are classic staples like this striped midi-dress from Monteau. Not only do we love the price point, but we love how effortlessly it can be incorporated into any style + look. This dress really is the perfect pallet for fine-tuning to your personal tastes. While these red Seychelles sandals add an element of drama and color to the look – we can totally see this with some great high top sneakers, classic black loafers, and anything in between.

Red, Red Wall

Traffic People and their brand, designs, fits, and silhouettes never fail to absolutely blow us away. We appreciate how they effortlessly throw an edgy spin on an otherwise semi-predictable classic. Take the LBD (little black dress) for example. Classic and timeless. You can embody all the wonderful qualities of the LBD by incorporating an all-black color palette with the added interest of this beautiful bow detail and leather midi skirt. Leave it to Traffic People to challenge your style staples while still being completely approachable and chic. And what goes better with black head-to-toe than gold statement jewelry? When your outfit is all the same color or shade, you can really add some dimension with your accessories. Alexandra Scarlett utilizes shapes, patterns, and angles beautifully in her pieces which makes them stand-out. From the office to a night out – these elevate your look for any occasion.

Ark & WHOAH

Happy Spring! Monday was the official first day of Spring, but to be honest we have been enjoying the spring-like temperatures and showers for awhile. And with Spring officially among us comes Spring weddings, holidays, and special occasions. We love that this dress from Ark & Co seems to have the fresh buds of spring woven into every inch. This dress can stand alone at any outdoor get together and depending on shoes and accessories can easily be dressed up or down. We love the hint of metallic thread that catches the light (because trust us, you’re going to want to twirl in this one!)
