Peach and Pink Favorites | Spring Fashion Style

Peach and Pink Favorites | Spring Fashion StyleJust as we get ready to tuck away our fuzzy cardigans and comfy sweaters that we’ve been wearing for winter, it’s an opportune time to highlight a few of our favorite new peach and pink fashion pieces. All these pretties have just arrived this week and I think adding any one of these to your spring rotation would easily revive your what’s already in your closet.

Animal Print Handbag

Cute Animal Print Handbags
It’s a great time of the year to consider updating your wardrobe with a new animal print handbag.  Just like with accessorizing with a great animal print flat or pump it’s always a smart idea to have a few options in the animal print handbag category.  Above are a few or our most recent new arrivals in this department.  Both styles above come in a great brown/tan version and an ivory combo (which is super classy for winter!). These ultra chic bags pair well with all your neutrals but don’t forget to explore wearing  these cuties with an outfit that has a bold color theme as well! It goes without saying that animal print accessories never go out of style no matter the season so go ahead and have some fun by adding a little dimension and texture with either a darling tiger, cheetah or zebra print bag this month.

Take a look at some of our current trending items.

Thinking of Fall

Jetsetter Grey Print Leggings


Thinking of Fall

It’s hard to believe while we are sipping chilled drinks in July that fall is just around the corner!  Soon leaves will fall and there will be a crispness in the air and you’ll just know that the season has changed all of a sudden! I tend to look forward most to fall for fashion. There’s something about a new cute jacket, boots and a hat that tend to breathe new life into a wardrobe.  After summer it’s fun to have the chance to reset our fashion style a bit while we shift gears for cooler climates.

What To Look Forward To

Here at Mimi Boutique, our pre fall collection started rolling out as of this week…and it’s fun to see rich deep hues in bags and accessories again. Several pre fall accessories that have already made it up on the site  include some bigger sized handbags, studded satchels and chunkier jewelry options. Moving forward we are expecting some fun accessories that combine a mix of textures, metal influences and fun vibrant colors! Also on the horizon are some cute seasonal clothing pieces so, stay tuned and make sure to check back often!

Fall First Look

Worth highlighting today: one of our sure to be favorite bags for the fall season is our Cassarino Tote. This bag comes in 5 colors: red, navy, olive, hazelnut and coffee.  We think it’s a great transitional bag and is super for someone who prefers a bigger shoulder bag. The chain details on the handles really give this tote some personality, don’t you think?

Boots and Jacket Options under $300

So while your shopping online, pick up a few budget friendly pieces at our boutique and then consider a few of my personal favorites in the jacket and boot category below (that I’ve been swooning over as of late).

Fall Lip Color Tip

With the change of season there is always good cause to invest in a new lip color. One of Allure’s 6 makeup tips for fall is a nice berry lip.  I have a soft spot for Nars, so I’ve got my eyes on  Nars Gipsy lip color (a beautiful sheer warm berry).

Boho Casual Summer

Ease and casualness

In the summer, it’s easy to gravitate towards a boho casual style due to the ease and feminine flair that accompanies it.  Whether you are drawn to maxi dresses, shorts and a flowy top, or the beautiful embroidered accessories that this style encompasses, we can all agree this style of casual dressing is one which many girls during the warmer weather months aspire to.

 

Downshifting your style

Dressing boho casual in the summer time is all about downshifting your style while keeping it carefree and chic.  Try starting out with a few staples like a maxi dress, jean shorts or skirt and adding a flowing top or knit sweater for a laid back style. Try adding some fun beaded jewelry or layer for something a bit more lighthearted. For a finishing touch try adding a neutral straw hat with a floral accent

Mix textures and accessories

Don’t be afraid to take the ankle boots from spring or fall and add them to your ensemble. Mix prints and knits from the previous season with new floral pieces for a fun approach as well!  If you haven’t already, try experimenting with lace separates. Remember,  a chic hobo or a fun canvas bag is a great accessory to invest in for the season to achieve a boho casual vibe.

 

Boho Casual Current Favorites

We’ve handpicked a few items from our current selection in hope that this provides some inspiration. How do you dress boho casual? We would love to hear!

Cute Pink Necklaces

It’s easy to soften up any look with something pink. Let’s face it it’s fun, girly and oh so pretty!  Love pink? Lucky you! Pink is trending on the fashion charts this season!  It’s a wonderful time to zoom into this pretty color in any variation that you love.   Fashion experts at the Boston Globe did a wonderful job outlining this key trend in a recent article . Runways and magazines have highlighted this predominant color trend since the end of last year and it continues to go strong as we move into summer and fall.

Cute Pink Necklaces Make Accessorizing Easy

We have an ever changing selection of pink necklaces in our store.

Turquoise Cute Baubles

Turquoise is such a pretty color. It pairs so well with neutrals and seems to compliment even better with other pops of colors.

Pairing these two chic colors has always been a beloved Parisian style.  Style on The Side recently posted a noteworthy read about ‘how to wear brown‘ as well.  The verdict is still out on whether wearing brown at night is OK!
