Summer Style Preview: Boho Chic

Enjoy this spring weather now! Here in North Carolina, it is generally short-lived. That being said, we have plenty of summery options to take you into the upcoming season.

If you tend towards a boho chic style, we have beautiful pieces from great designers such as Johnny Was, Go Silk and Matthildur. We love the flow and the color of Johnny Was, the washable silk kimonos that look more like art pieces from Go Silk and the breathability of a pima cotton paint-splatter print dress from Matthildur.

Pair with a straw hat from Tula to protect yourself from the sun and a simple pair of sandals to complete your look. You’re summer-ready!
