Orange You Glad…

…That the Minx Blog is BACK?!? Because, we are so happy to BE back! With all that said, we are ready to dive into some Summer fun now that the days are long and just plain HOT. Since the temperature is rising, so is our need to effortlessly balance comfort with cute, Summer style. This crop-top from Sadie & Sage gives us that delicate balance of flirty and comfortability. Matched perfectly with this pair of orange striped pants, you are ready for wherever your Summer days take you. (We don’t say this lightly when we say this outfit feels as good as your PJs!) We added some brass-toned accessories to play off of the overall warm-tone of this look and a structured woven bag (which could easily fit at least 3 grapefruit La Croix’s). Where will this Summer take you?

Crushed Blush

It’s no secret how much we (and the fashion world at large!) love this blush-y, rose-y shade of pink. Maybe we love how closely it matches a crisp glass of rose? Maybe we cant help but be swept up in the “millennial pink” trend? No matter how we got there – we sure our happy to incorporate more pink in our wardrobe. With this soft, pastel look we thought incorporating bold accessories and shoes would balance it nicely and add some interest. Don’t wait for an all-neutral look to add a pop of color – just pair pieces from the same color family and find a pair of statement shoes to really top it off. We love how these heels from Seychelles really stand out with the rest of this otherwise monochromatic look. So, millennial or not, we hope you feel encouraged to think pink this summer!

Post Up

We recognize that your news feed is being saturated with music festival outfits – but we would be doing summer a massive injustice without honoring this popular warm-weather activity. Whether you’re camping over a long weekend or just stopping by for the night, two things remains constant: comfort and trendy! This linen shift dress from Loveriche nails it! The pattern is eye catching without too many bells and whistles getting in the way of your free range of motion for grass-stomping and hula-hooping. While its easy to think that summer music fests are a bralette and high-waisted shorts only-zone: we absolutely beg to differ. Shift dresses are perfect because they’re cool in the hot weather and take no time to toss on with your favorite pair of sneakers or sandals. 100% would recommend.

Take a Bow

The floral shift dress is (or definitely should be!) a staple in every gals’ wardrobe. Its flirty and girly while still being adaptable to everyone’s personal style and flair. They can be dressed up with heels, or down with a denim jacket and sneakers. Its no secret the millions of wardrobe variations you can create with a floral dress and a little creativity. Feeling tired of your classic combos? Try different textures in the same color family. We love these velvet belt that can be tied in many different ways to suit the occasion. Adding some statement shoes, with some unexpected texture like faux fur or metal hardware, adds interest and changes up the entire vibe without my effort. Accessorizing is key for putting a new spin on your most beloved go-to pieces.
