APRIL 27, 2015 BY MELANIE SUTRATHADA Unexpected Ways to Wear
Florals This Spring

As Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada so famously said, “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” Still, we love this cheerful print and are seeing it worn in new, unexpected ways. Here are our favorite ways to style this traditionally feminine pattern:

An oversized kimono in a fun paisley print will have you feeling effortlessly chic in no time.

P1-What-Olivia-Did

Trade out your traditional floral prints for more tropical ones. This one feels perfect for spring and summer, especially when paired with a colorful high-waisted skirt.

P2-Mix-And-Match-Fashion

Add some playfulness to pretty pastels with pops of florals on your shoulders.

P3-Steffys-Pros-And-Cons

Add a menswear twist with oxfords.

P4-Something-Navy

Throw on a white structured blazer to really help your neon florals pop.

P5-Not-Your-Standard

Rock garden party florals with another fun floral piece.

P6-M-Loves-M-Blog

A simple black and white two-piece printed set will help you stand out in the crowd.

P7-She-Wears-Fashion

Throw a white leather vest over an unapologetic patterned romper.

MARCH 27, 2015 BY SAMANTHA Destination Unknown: Vacation Dresses and More!

This spring, it seems like everyone I know is already planning an exciting vacation. Needless to say, I’ve caught the travel bug! But where to go to next? Exotic Thailand…a backpacking trip through Europe…or perhaps a tranquil week on a deserted island (which is winning so far).

Yet suddenly where is not the issue at hand while planning my perfect vacation. I am instead stuck wondering, what on earth am I going to wear? Luckily, we’re busy filling our stores with vacation-worthy dresses, tote bags and sandals just in time for you’re next trip.
