fashion + beauty

May 24, 2023

Sheryl Crow said it best… it’s time to SOAK UP THE SUN! Summer is the season I count down to year after year, especially after a busy spring. This is when I want to bid adieu to the regular set schedule, head somewhere beachy and of course sport some new styles for the warm weather, too.

It’s time to step into summer feeling like your best dressed self… all in cuteness I collaborated with Shop Avara to bring for our 8th collection together! Think all-American celebrations, sunset soirees, and outfits made for vacay = all rolled into one colorful and chic collection from my go-to destination. And of course we’ve thrown in a handful of accessories, shoes and handbags to dress you up in head-to-toe Avara.

We are obsessed with bringing you clothing and accessories that make you smile and add a little sunshine to summer days and nights. It’s time for you to take center stage with vibrant energy, bold prints and cheerful colorways, too. No matter where summer takes you… we will ensure you’re completely put together, yet effortlessly chic and stylish.

So without further adieu, it’s time to give you that sweet summertime feeling… celebrating these long, but oh so short relaxed days. As always, be sure to shop the new drop fast… sizes go quickly AND don’t forget to use NATASHA15 at checkout to save 15% off your entire order.
