Jet Set

There’s just somethin’ about Summer that makes wanna hit the open road! Maybe it’s the clear skies and great weather that gets your mind wandering during your work day. Whether you’re a frequent flyer or a stay-cation expert, having that perfect go-to dress that suits any destination is a must have for this travel season. As you begin packing, we recommend bringing a piece that lends itself to layering (as weather can be unpredictable!), is a clean pallet to go with whatever accessories you can bring, is made of a fabric that doesn’t wrinkle easily or hold onto all of those interesting travel smells, and is a classic shape and silhouette. This dress from Adeline is such a nice option! The pleats and sleeve detail make it special enough for a trip out of town, but is comfortable and effortless so it lends itself perfectly to wherever you find your sense of curiosity taking you! Bon Voyage!

Sprout

With many activities becoming lake-side and ending with a quick ride down the French Broad River, its important to consider how easily your look can go from indoors to outdoors without factoring in a complete outfit change. Perhaps that means finding the perfect summer sandal that is not only eye catching but also incredibly comfortable and versatile. We have definitely found that in our Pons sandals! Made by hand in Spain since 1945, these ethically-minded sandals are created out of recycled materials and all-natural leather. We encourage you to learn more about the history of these sandals on their website and come try a pair on for yourself! Toss on your go-to summer dress or cover-up and soak up as much summer sun as possible.

Shopping on a set budget: the Convertible Strapless Dress

A lovely look under $45.

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.

Hot little number.

Since this week’s photo shoot was at Tiger Mountain, we wanted to feature outfits oriented towards nightlife and going out more than usual.  A hot little number like this Piko tunic/dress is sure to turn heads, but it’s also comfortable and doesn’t show off all of your goods at once!  A kick-a$$ pair of zippered black booties and some hoops keep things simple and chic, without trying too hard.  Cheers!
