shop preview

This week's shop preview is a little late, but we lost power (after a very brief and not particularly strong storm) on Tuesday, so I didn't get my photo shoot done until yesterday.  It's already turned quite sultry here in Michigan, and this week's selection of pale, icy blues and whites mixed with bright sunshine-y yellows and oranges pretty much sums up summer for me.

Also, this preview has two blouse-and-skirt sets in it.  I think these sets are such excellent wardrobe workhorses.  Wear the pieces together, for a pulled-together dress-like look, or as separates.

All items arriving in the shop soon!
