It’s that time!  We’re sad to hear our seasonal DJ girls are packing up, sending the cars back North and saying goodbye (for now) to beautiful South Florida.  Not to worry, our DJ stylists will make sure you don’t miss out on any of your wonderful favorites we’ll have coming in throughout the summer!

Now the fun begins - making those plans for the summer, looking at all the destinations that are on your bucket list, coordinating vacation time with family and friends- and you know we have everything you need to make packing a breeze!

With all the traveling I do on my buying trips, I’ve become a pro at whittling down what I pack-  and that goes for my personal trips too!  

My main rule is don’t pack anything you can’t wear more than once.  Versatility is key and having separates that you can mix and match with different tops, jackets and accessories is a must.

Of course, where you’re going or what you’re doing dictates what you’re packing!  Here are a few guidelines to get you started.

For daytime, casual pants or skirts with fun tees or tanks and a comfortable sneaker or slide is the way to go.

I hear you can’t get enough of our graphic tees,
so I have some new prints for you!
Did you grab some of the Suzi Roher graphics?  If we were out of your size, good news- the reorder just came in.

 With all of the colors, they are the perfect choice to work back to so many of your different bottoms!

I try to pack with darker colors- the last thing I want to worry about is getting something dirty!  You probably know I love my neutral colors, so this new color- Rosemary- in the linen Kinsale pant from Frank and Eileen is definitely going to see some action this summer! 
Depending on my mood, I’ll just throw on a tee or one of my CP Shades linen tops.  How cute is this new pleated front blouse?

Can’t bear the heat?  The boxy, short sleeve (and yes, the sleeve is not too short) Nic is the choice for you!

There’s nothing more comfortable than their loose, flowy pant for the summer
or choose the Lily maxi skirt in their fantastic cotton/silk blend- easy and breezy for those hot summer days!

For the day with a simple Revel tank top and Tkee’s sandal

or pair at night with a colorful silk vest in this fun print from La Prestic Ouiston.


Need a bit more of a “look”?  My favorite metallic slide from Officine Creative

and an earring from Juliana Voss are all the finishing touches you need.

For those who like a narrow, more classic pant (and no, not sheer) Enza Costa is for you.  Nice weight, drawstring linen - roll up the bottom if you like! 

Their perfect V cotton tee 

or ribbed tank is a perfect choice. 

Just add an Officine Creative crossover sandal and wonderful canvas bag from Vive La Difference for an effortless look.

Of course, we can’t always be in the casual mode but we definitely want to be comfortable! How fabulous is this metallic gold stripe trouser from Forte Forte?  Top it off with your TWP Next Ex blouse for a slightly elevated look or go full on glam with one of your silk blouses

and load on the accessories with a chunky necklace!

Prints- the key to versatility when you’re traveling and nothing is better than pieces from La Prestic Ouiston!  Whether you choose the reversible one button duster

 or the long sleeve shirt dress, they're great pieces to wear on their own or layer with a Go Silk tank top and wear open with one of your favorite Peter Cohen or Avenue Montaigne satin cargo pants.


And when the occasion calls for that knockout, showstopper piece - it has to be Rick Owens!  Whether you choose the side zip Lido drape dress in this beautiful shade of Henna

or his bustier dress, you’ll be the hit of any party!

Check your calendar’s ladies, Mother’s Day is around the corner and we have fabulous ideas for you to choose from!  

Just to get you started, this collection from Philippe Audibert has something for everyone!  Beautiful classics with a bit of a twist.  Whether you choose the paper clip earring, delicate chain with pearl necklace or a chunky cuff there’s something for everyone on your list (maybe you’ll even be tempted)!

Keep an eye on your emails for some other fun events and gift ideas we have in store for you!
