There's something about summer that screams embroidery, right? Embroidered dresses and shirts are absolutely perfect for this time of year. Pair the tops with jean shorts, dresses over bathing suits, and wear it all out at night when you're done with the beach. We have some fabulous embroidered prices in the store and online that we are already wearing and loving. Enjoy!
One of the best things about summer is, of course, when you get to take a little weekend getaway. Whether a short drive or a quick flight, even just two days off for a little fun in the sun is totally necessary this time of year.

Have a great getaway!
Whether floral, stripes, geometric, or graphic, prints are fun to wear. And not only do they look great with denim and other solid bottoms or on their own, but it's fun to mix and match prints, as well. Step out of your comfort zone and try it. Keep scrolling for some great print inspiration, along with some favorites available in store and online.

This is the time of year that backyard BBQs are in full swing. Invite your friends over, fire that grill up, pour yourself some homemade sangria, and enjoy one of the best things about summer. Whether you're hosting the BBQ or going to one, you want to make sure you dress the part, of course. Think: lightweight, breathable fabric, protection from the sun, comfortable footwear, and go colorful because why not?!
Hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend! Now that summer has 'unofficially' begun, we're in a totally carefree mindset and ready to welcome the season with open arms. Our wardrobes are almost all set, having switched over from spring essentials to summer basics. And one of the key components to that new wardrobe would have to be shorts. Shorts are such a staple. Whether you wear them over a bathing suit to the beach or to dinner with a cute top and wedges, shorts are versatile and needed in the summer months. From solid to print to denim and everything in between, it's certainly a 'short story' this time of year!
I have a feeling we're not alone in what we're about to say: Ever since Gossip Girl, Blake Lively has been one of our all time favorite stars with a wardrobe that is simply to die for. Everything she steps out in is so incredibly stylish. While all of her Black Tie affair gowns are unlike anything we've seen before, we're going to focus today on a few of her more casual looks because, after all, summer is on the horizon, and we're in a carefree, casual state of mind!
