My Favorites This Season

We are fully into spring with summer straight ahead. I am very excited about the products I found for the store this season and have selected a few to share that are some of my favorites. 

So, in no particular order, here are my 7 favorites of the season:


Espadrilles

Nothing says warm weather weekends and getaways like a great pair of Espadrilles. With floral patterns being so popular right now I choose these from La Maison de L’Espadrille. Hand made in the south of France using all natural products; cotton, jute and natural rubber, these are the real deal.

Sunglasses

An obvious necessity when you are out in the sun. Designed in Chicago, a town of great style! Every pair offers 100% UV protection. Choosing just one pair was impossible so I went with my top 3 favs. Protect your peepers and look good at the same time.

Gingham

Another warm weather classic. I don’t care how it is used, I love gingham! It is fresh and clean and reminds me of a warm summer day. With Comfy I went with a focus on the classic red and white check of the peasant style blouse that can be worn on or off the shoulders. The button down is a little bolder with some black and white thrown in the mix.

Elliott Lauren went with a slightly crinkled whisper weight cotton blend for the hot, hot days that lie ahead. Choose between a sleeveless style and long sleeves you can roll up, maybe both to cover all your bases.

Summer Kimono

Whether you are headed to the beach, an outdoor evening concert or a gallery event, you are going to want something lightweight to slip on when a chill sets in. Kimonos are right on trend-- really, do they ever go out? Indigenous uses the softest organic cotton and I love the subtle pattern used here. This is a must have summer piece.

White Denim

White denim is having a moment, again. Really, it is becoming a year round staple but is especially great for warm weather. Liverpool jeans have a fantastic fit with an equally fantastic price. The slim Penny ankle is a hot style you need to have in your closet.

Cross Body Bag

Being hands-free when you are out and about is a great feeling but keeping your necessities with you is important. Enter the MZ Wallace Micro Crosby Cross Body bag, perfection in this category. It is lightweight, comes with an optional short, leather woven chain handle and will hold just what you need. It is made of quilted nylon so wiping it off it a breeze.

Simon Sebbag

When it comes to summer jewelry Simon Sebbag is a definite go-to. It has a chunky look but is incredibly lightweight. They always choose interesting stones that work well with a summer wardrobe and the sterling used is a high quality 925 silver. These stretch bracelets stand alone but they create a great statement when worn stacked.
