This month we’re feeling inspired by an eclectic mix of classic Americana and this summer’s just-emerging trends. Our love for all-American pin-up girl style only grows stronger with the advent of Independence Day, of course. And summer is the season for tie dye; a trend that’s still going strong. We’re also on board with the comeback of the Birkenstock sandal, a crunchy gal favorite that’s suddenly popping up on the pages of Vogue. So dive in!

Some believe that great style is defined by a particular set of rules. We’re all familiar with them – they’ve been around for as long as any of us can remember. For the most part, these rules have passed as law, but a few brave women among us have begun to question them.
