With their lovely organic nature and their different expressions of what’s to come, florals are a classic choice for any springtime piece.   Make sure to choose them in light-weight fabrics like nylon, silk, or silk blends so as to stay cool while you look fabulous.

This fantastic peek-a-boo lace is a lady-like addition that gives this sweet top a little extra interest.  Keep an eye out for lace accents this season because they are also very on-trend for spring/summer 2014.

Not-so-skinny jeans!

Share |



While skinny jeans may still rain supreme they have an adversary in the form of relaxed fit denim.  This fun Spring 2014 denim trend is completely versatile and easy to wear, and did I mention unbelievably comfortable (good bye to those mornings of shimmying into your skinny jeans!!).



Relaxed denim can be as casual or dressed up as you want!  Wear relaxed denim dressed down with a patterned sweater, tee, or your favorite pull over.  As night falls pair your relaxed fit denim with structured jacket or silky top and add a fabulous hand bag and heels for a chic look.  Two of our favorite pairs are from Joe's Jeans the Easy High Water and Easy Slim Fit, give them a try and  guarantee you will have a new favorite pair of jeans.  Shop our web-store or call us at 503-232-3500 or email us at info@shopmink.com.
