As summer freedom gives way to school bells, we've put together a few looks that embody warm rays and sunny days!
Be the flamingo in a flock of pigeons with a colorful outfit that's fun, bright, and totally comfortable! With a friendly squawk of inspiration, the Toucan Do It! tee from Oliver & Otis
shines with a tropical printed graphic on a citrus orange triblend unisex tee, built for comfort and easy-wear. We paired it with classic light denim skinny jeans
rolled at the ankles to make way for our Vivid Blue Pehuea's from OluKai
. These slip on sneakers with optional drop-in heal are great when running out the door to catch the bus, and the arch support makes the long days effortless. To carry all that homework, we added the Sadie reversible bag from Bops
that allows an easy style change to fit whatever mood or outfit. These charitable bags are handmade in India and each is unique to you! Don't lose your sense of self as the new school year drags on.
Summer Is Calling
Being comfy doesn't have to mean sacrificing style, and as summer turns to fall, the beach isn't far when its' laid-back attitude lives in your heart all year long. If you're looking for a more toned-down look with small, subtle hints of where you'd rather be, the Right Move Mini Dress from Billabong
is your new best friend. Easy to style up or down, this stretchy and lightweight dress is perfect for that autumn transition look. Layer it with a pair of cropped leggings and the Be Free Slip-On Sneakers also from Billabong
that feature a "take me away" and breezy palm tree graphic. To carry just the essentials (and add a few more stripes), we added the "Free to Grow" bumblebee zipper pouch from The Tote Project, another charitable and handmade option. The Tote Project donates their time and 10% of profits to aid in the fight to end human trafficking. Just like the bags in the previous outfit, each zipper pouch is unique!
The Boys of Summer
Yes, we carry dude stuff, too. Guys, we didn't forget about you! We know our Coral & Calypso guys practically live on the water. If you wonder how you haven't sprouted gills yet, or maybe you like to keep your toes in the sand from the comfort of your Adirondack chair, a Salt Life tee is always the right choice. We paired our Men's Salty State of Mind tee
with a classic pair of jeans and the Salt Life Pipe Down skateboard-style sneakers
for rad vibes and optimal comfort.
