Flirt the day away in this Tiered Mini Skirt. It’s shirred all around the hip for an easy fit, and plenty of ruffles put a girly spring in your step.

These running shorts have a multicolored rib knit waistband and a lot of sparkle.
Embroidered tulle and lace don’t need a fancy design. This Tunic with Sash is open at the sides and fully lined under transparent lace. An attached sash cinches the waist. It looks dreamy with denim or even plain black leggings.
Tunic or mini dress? You can wear this darling Pintuck Tunic Dress either way, either as a hippie mini or with leggings or tights as a top. The front is beautifully detailed with pintucks and the back is cut slightly longer for coverage.
Going strapless is easy in this linen jersey jumpsuit. A smocked back and ties across the chest keep it from slipping down without sacrificing style. Banded cuffs show off your shoes, and side pockets are an extra nice detail.
A quick and easy sew makes a dramatic and comfortable tank or beach cover up. The Side Seam Tank has adjustable straps using O rings, and stretch jersey in a fun print is lightweight for summer. Whip it up in a snap for a weekend in the sun.
