A Taste of Spring

Despite the early winter deluge of snow and rain, we’re feeling pretty lucky now with the weather. And to make it even sweeter, we’re starting to receive new spring inventory and it’s totally giving us a spring in our steps! Bagutta is a luxe Italian brand specializing in shirts and we just got in some delightful striped blouses, skirts, and dresses, all in the summery hues we love.

Thanks to Pantone choosing Living Coral as their color of the year, we have license to load up on the brights for spring and summer. Coral is an extremely flattering color, and depending on your own coloring, you can choose something with a little more orange or a little more pink. Now you might think walking into our store, we’ve got a thing for stripes. Well, quite frankly, we do. Big, small, bright, subtle, stripes are so classic, flattering, and very versatile.

Any of our striped shirts can be paired with denim – white and blue – and they all make great base layers for sweaters and jackets. When the weather is cool, it’s fun to have a little pop of bright stripes peeking out at the collar and hem. You might think pink stripes with a little ruffle are too resort, but they can work for the office too. Throw on a little blazer in tan or black with coordinating bottoms, and you’ll be bringing resort with you to the office.

Last but not least, don’t be left hanging without a dress to wear to the first polo match or wedding of the season. We have a perfect pink dress with orange buttons and a stunning white eyelet dress with orange accents at the hem. Both dresses feature a face-framing collar and flattering ¾ length sleeves, perfect for this early spring weather.

Mom, Dad, and daughters (Karen, Jeff, Risa, Ali, and Lauren) all decided to take their love for sweet and salty snacks to the next level in 2010, creating up to 15 different flavors of dipped pretzel sticks!
