Incorporating all the best parts of Summer into your every day.
“We all have those few pieces in our closet that we have never worn, …yet…, or we have maybe worn once or twice, but serve a purpose. They are those special pieces that we one day can’t wait to wear on the right day, a special day. The kind of piece that we know will make us feel…top shelf level, aka our best self. We will feel completely badass in this outfit we saved. More often than not those pieces are the ones we find ourselves tempted to break out of the closet and be bold enough to wear in Summertime.
Summer is the time that gives us permission to be a little bolder, a little more daring, try new things, go to new places. It’s the time we find ourselves most alive, fully living our lives, and stepping into ourselves- our true selves.
These pieces in the collection are taking that special outfit, the one you think you can’t rock just any day and turning it into your new everyday energy. While these pieces have the touches of special occasion vibes, they are comfortable to wear and versatile enough to allow you to turn your every day into a whole new level you, the Summer edition you, where you have now reached a new level and that is your new every day.
These pieces allow you to feel your special occasion badass outfit energy every single day. The type of pieces you think no, I can’t pull this off today, but then you step into it just to give it a try and realize how comfortable and effortlessly beautiful you feel in it and realize this outfit is here to help you take on your everyday life and transform it into the turning heads, daaamnn girl why you look so cute today energy you deserve.”

Summer Vibes vs. Lazy Summer Vibes…’Why don’t we do both!’
“In this Summer Collection we particularly incorporated both bold, bright and fun colors and patterns along with cool, calming, grounding styles and material.
We wanted girls to have the option to have both styles for all the different adventures they will face in the Summer.
Whether you’re having brunch with family and friends or going over to a friends patio for an evening glass of wine or bubbly, or maybe even just exploring shops or cafes we have summer pieces that have the comfort and softness of just being yourself and wanting to enjoy your day while still looking and feeling your best.
Sometimes you want to look cute, but you don’t feel like taking on your “over the top” vibes and you just want an outfit that lets you forget about how you look and just allows you to enjoy your day spent making memories with loved ones. Our cool-tone pieces allow you to dress for Summer with a touch of at-home comfort.
Us girls love our quality time with friends and spending our summers relaxing, reading a book, enjoying the warm weather, and letting go of all the stress and worry that weighs us down for as much time as we can…..and some times we want to have FUN. We want to get out there and feel alive, chase a little thrill, and dance our hearts out.
We live for those moments and our outfit simply completes the experience. That’s why we’ve added pieces in this collection that are bright, vibrant, and uplifting to help enhance your summer memories with the perfect style to showcase just how much of an amazing wild and crazy girl, in all the best ways, you are.
Water balloon fights, midnight shake runs, dance parties- whatever shenanigans you find yourself in during the Summer time, you need the right outfit to make those pictures for the ‘gram just a little more epic.
And we had that allll in mind when we picked out the perfect pieces to add to our Summer Collection for you to get your hands on.”

They say you can take the girl out of California but you can’t take the California out of the girl.
Well that’s exactly what we had in mind for this Summer Collection. Summer may only be a few months of the year, but you don’t have to take the energy of Summer out of your life altogether.
This collection allows you to carry on with your life any time of the year in your favorite Summer pieces without having to worry about looking like your “out-of-season” -while we don’t support labels and we say if you want to rock any season any time of the year then you should, we know that some of us love to shop for pieces that have the best of both worlds. We gotchu.
We chose these pieces to be perfect for your Summer journey and then some. These are the styles and outfits that can allow you to continue feeling your Summer best in any season. You can dress them up or down, layer them, accessorize them.
Our favorite part about this collection is that each piece looks amazing on its own without any layers or accessories, but each piece is still neutral enough that it can be used year-round.
Sometimes having to switch out your wardrobe each season can be tedious and annoying, with these styles you can have one part of your closet that you don’t have to stress over, that you can turn to any time of the year when you want to feel effortlessly beautiful in a totes casually cute outfit that you feel completely yourself in.
