They’re so versatile; they’re darling dressed up or down. A fresh alternative to a LBD.

Summertime stylin’ in budget-friendly online favorites: our Mod Print Skater Skirt and Connect the Dots Tank

Salute the sun in some of our favorite prints. Tiny dots become a nice neutral paired with our Mod Print Skater Skirt. When mixing prints, it’s all about balance. With such a bold print on the skirt, it’s smart to go with a smaller, basic print to compliment it.

Shopping on a set budget: the Convertible Strapless Dress

A lovely look under $45.

multi_way_dress

A multi-way dress that won’t break the bank? Yes please!

Wear the hi-low skirt off to one side, twist it back to the front, fold it down for a sweet skirt… you have options!

This is a fabulous piece to pack on your summer vacation or weekend at the lake. The soft jersey fabric fares well in a suitcase and plays nice with all of your favorite tops. We love a navy stripe with mustard yellow, but try adding a fun floral print blouse for an unexpected, yet super-chic combo.

The dress and necklace are available in our online store.

The sandals and tank can be found in our Asheville boutique.
