Summer has arrived and we have all of the outfits and accessories you need. From beach days, picnics, to winery trips, here are some of our favorites of 2021!
1. Bright Colors
From orange to aqua to hot pink - this is the summer of bright colors. After a year inside wth sweatpants on, it's exciting to wear an outfit for everyone to see. Make a statement at the picnic or beach with a pop of color.
2. Dresses and Jumpsuits
It's not summer if there aren't sun dresses! Over the past few years, jumpsuits have taken over - offering a cute look while feeling comfortable. Pair it with a sun hat and you're ready for the winery!
3. Clay Earrings (Handmade by Clayssic Designs of East Haven, CT)
These simple statement earrings are our go-to for any summer outfit. Look stylish while supporting a local Connecticut artist!
4. Beachy Waves
Bring the beach wherever you go with this sea salt spray. These ingredients give you those salty, beachy waves with only a few sprays. With sea salt and coconut essential oil, you're going to smell like the beach, too!
Want to give off warm and positive vibes this summer? When it doubt, go with yellow! Don't want to go all-out? Try something simple like these wedges that give you a bit of color and pairs perfectly with beige or demin.

Although it may not feel like it, Spring is here! While we're all quarantined at home, it is the perfect time to brighten up the house and work on some DIY projects! If you're not ready to take on a large piece, start small with a tray, picture frame or mason jar. Here are our suggestions for the best springtime colors for 2020!
1. Pure Ocean
Pure Ocean blue is perfect for beach lovers! This color goes well on lamps for pop of color with a funky shade. You can also layer white "Fluff" to add some dimension.
Flamingo chalk paint mixes shades of pink and orange for a beautiful coral finish! This is another good choice for a sandy, beacy vibe. We've found that this color works well with white and grey. Try painting knobs or a chair with a lighter cusion!
Dixie Belle has a great line of yellow paints, but Daisy is definitely our favorite for Spring! We love this one on a mason jar filled with flowers.
4. Lucky Lavender
This shade of chalk paint is a soft purple that perfectly matches the flower. Perfect for a serene space like a bedroom or laundry room to give you a calming feel. Lizzie's choice - try this one on a decorative watering can on your porch!
5. Mint Julep
If there's any color that makes you want to sit on a porch swing and smell the fresh flowers, it's Mint Julep. This light green is a great accent color with any of Dixie Belle's brighter shades. Try this on coasters or trays for some lemonade on your porch!
