Spring Favorites from Blue Skies Shop

One of my favorite places to shop is my friend, Cara’s, Blue Skies Shop.  Cara has impeccable taste.  And her shop is like shopping within her personal closet.  I love it all!

When I saw this aztec maxi dress I knew I had to have it.  The blouson top, the pockets, and the colors just shouted “me!”  I recently took it on my California vacation and wore it at least a couple of times.  It was perfect to dress up a little with some gold sandals and jewelery.  Or to throw a denim jacket over for a more casual daytime look.

Something else I picked up was this darling tribal print top.  I could see myself wearing it with poplin shorts, gladiator sandals, and a bundle of gold bracelets this summer.  Here, I paired it with jeans and gold flats for an easy yet pulled together look while out and about with my kiddos.
