  2. Pink/Tomato Flip-flop Second picture.
  3. Green/Limes Flip-flop

BTW – I’m loving this season’s Farm Rio dress collection which is full of vibrant, tropical, and happy prints. It goes with this Summer’s biggest trend “Joy Dressing” (check out WSJ article about “Joy Dressing“). After wearing sweats for the past year we want to wear clothing that makes us feel happy, and Farm Rio checks that box. A couple dresses I’m loving are this (below picture), this, & this.

Another cool collaboration to check out is Vans x Liberty of London. Liberty of London a century old brand known for beautiful floral prints has lent it’s signature fabric to the Old Skool Sneaker. You can check it out here.

Have a great day everyone!
