Summer Must-Haves for Work

Share |
The temperature inside the office can be just as temperamental as the weather outside. With help from some of our favorite in-store brands, Mink has many work-appropriate outfits to keep you comfortable in frigid air-conditioning spaces and cool when outside on the job. Take a look at the pieces below, which can be mix-matched and swapped to create a whole new work wardrobe for summer!


This 3 Dot long sleeve blouse ($128) is 100% cotton and plush as a cloud. If you're looking for a more conservative top or one that covers the arms, grab this billowy shirt that will keep you covered and cool. 


Nic & Zoe's long engagement skirt ($130)is a fun twist on your typical bottom pairing. The high-low hem gives a little more length to your legs while still being acceptable as work-wear. 


We just adore the detail in the new Nic & Zoe black lace top ($143)! It's lined with beige viscose layer so there's no need to layer up with a tank. I personally think it would look stunning with the above skirt.


The Dido blouse ($132) is a striking option for a more sophisticated look that can either be dressed down with a pair of dark wash skinny jeans or dressed up with a skirt and heels.  


You may not be able to tell from the picture but this lightweight Rosie top ($99) is a misty blue hue. Relax in this airy blouse on a hot summer day during and after work.



The last pairing is this fabulous fringe bottom a-line skirt ($130). We call it the magic skirt because it looks magically amazing on every body type, plus it pairs well with most work shirts, blouses and jackets.

With just these six items, you can create a whole new look and wardrobe for hot summer days and cold office hours. Stop by the shop today for some personal styling tips and a whole lot of fun!

Dressing Up: Every occasion dresses at Mink

Share |
Dressing really is a way of life and we never grow up and grow out of getting gussied up--we simply move on from our grandmother's trunk full of costume jewelry to fit sessions in the dressing room. And at Mink, we have everything you need to relive your dress up days for any special occasion.

First, hop a plane to Hawaii, The Bahamas, or perhaps the Cinque Terra for a destination wedding or well-deserved vacation in these Sarah Bibb maxi dresses. These fun and sophisticated looks are lightweight, which make them ideal for warmer weather. Plus, it's comfortable enough to wear on a plane and chic enough to wear to your friend's beach wedding.


Our fabulous store manager, Rachel, looks stunning in the cowl neck maxi dress ($182). 


Pair it with these Amy Olson hinged triple swing earrings ($75) to achieve a more sophisticated look.


Or hop a plane to a destination wedding in this blue chevron patterned version of the maxi ($182).


Add these porcelain Zoe Comings earring ($48)...


...and this grey and silver Forge & Fire ring ($26) to complete the look. 

If you're looking for an easy transition from casual day wear to formal wear, opt for this lovely Weston Harlow dress ($188) in black and white. Like the Sarah Bibb maxis, this dress is made of cool rayon for the approaching summer days. Throw on a cardigan and a few accessories for a pop of color to transition into formal wear. 



We love Anna Sukardi jewelry, like these hand-dyed leather earrings ($75) for the perfect pop of color. Just slip on some red heels and you're set!

You'll be the bees-knees in this next jaw-dropping number by Nic & Zoe. It's a perfect cocktail dress ($187) for any dinner party or black tie event. The elegant black lace draped over the beige lining gives it a vintage feeling that calls for delicate jewelry, like the Ann DiNucci earrings ($54). 



The last look couldn't be more fitting for a fun and flirty day in our beloved city of Portland. Carla Mink designed this 70s wrap dress ($188) with an interior lining that lends a comfortable weight to the dress. The muted colors flecked with vibrant reds, purples and orange make it in-season all year long. To top off the 70s vibe, pair it with Anna Sukardi's unique brown leather hoops ($52) and brown boots or sandals. 




Stop by the shop to play dress up and leave knowing your destination awaits you in that oh-so-fabulous dress!

Top Spring Colors 2015: Classic Blues and Vivid Yellows

Share |
Here at Mink, we've got a major case of the blues and the yellows—in December, fashion trend-spotters predicted marsala, a rich red wine hue, to be this year's "it" color. But well-behaved women seldom make history, so we're foregoing their prediction to bring you classic nautical colors that reflect summertime daydreams and a cool ocean breeze. See our variations of blues, like indigo and cobalt, and many shades of yellow, including Carla Mink's precious Eliza dress in sunglow below.


Floral skirt by Yumi. The perfect lightweight skirt to pair with any neutral basic tank, tee or blouse. 



Eliza Two-fer dress by Carla Mink. So French chic with a necessary detail, pockets!



Day dress by Yumi. We can't get enough of the pleating detail and tropical graphics—palms, toucans and leopard print. 



Liya Tunic by Kerisma. Wear as a shirt or throw it over your swimsuit for the perfect beach cover-up.

Don't let April fool you, summer sun and heat is just around the corner. Pop into the shop for these chic and fabulous looks with our lovely style experts—and make your color statement!
