A dress for all you lovely ladies!  I am so in love with color these days.  Just take a peek at the ARoss Girl x Soler collaboration.  It is one to dream about.  Spotted on Net-A-Porter of course on this rainy day.  These stunning dresses come with a price tag but I am certain you could come with a handful of reasons to warrant your purchase (think cost per wear).  Then you will find yourself twirling in one over excitement.  A midi length is not always the easiest to pull off but with the help of a block heel or neutral strappy sandal you are well on your way.  The maxi just needs a sweet flat.  These dresses are playful, colorful, pretty, feminine, and timeless.  It is that one dress that would never need dusting off.  So pretty! Bravo!!

Something Short For Summer

Vince Easy breezy shorts for summer.  I love the idea of shorts but they must hit the sweet spot length.  The hunt is over with Vince’s pleat front cotton shorts. They look crisp yet read casual and hit mid thigh.  You can choose from three neutral tones.  Keep your look relaxed during the day by pairing these with your favorite tee.  For an evening look, add a loose-fitting blazer along with some fun earrings.  A woven pair of sandals or sneakers to complete the look.  (I am anxiously awaiting for these shorts to hit sale!)

A Textile Love Affair With ace & jig

It is all about collaboration!  This is absolutely true with Carey Vaughan and Jenna Wilson, the two ladies behind ace & jig.  They met years ago as fashion design interns then fast forward to being reunited over their absolute love around antique textiles.  ace & jig is where pattern playing is at its best!  The more you experience the pieces the more you fall in love.  Every piece has its own personality and is waiting to be worn and enjoyed.  The colors and patterns can make even the most conservative lady branch out of their comfort zone.  ace & jig are timeless pieces that you build upon.  They don’t read in the moment trend and they don’t read boring!  They are effortless.  You can layer, wear alone, and mix and match any piece.  ace & jig has no rules except that you must love what you own if not then swap it with another ace & jig fan.
