Who else loves summer clothing? It’s so wonderful to change from heavy, bulky clothes to light and airy outfits! If you noticed this past year, many styles were reminiscent of the 1980’s, and it continues through this summer. Styles this season include floral prints, flowing blouses and skirts, tie-dye prints, and plenty of neutral tones.

We are partnering with Mellie & Emilia once again to show you what’s hot this coming season. The store is located at 365 Peters Creek Parkway in Winston-Salem and includes styles for everyone. Their collection of accessories is amazing as well! Their staff is sure to help you find something that flatters your figure while complimenting your favorite style.

Mellie & Emilia celebrated their two year anniversary at the beginning of April! They also hosted a fashion show with wonderful models who are local to the area and shoppers with Mellie! Below you can see some of the styles that were showcased along with a photo of owner Courtney Myers,  her husband Bryon, daughter Zella, and sons Mason and McCoy.



As mentioned previously, floral patterns are in this spring. This light weight material in the dress below is perfect for spring/early summer weddings. We also love the solid navy as an easy slip-on dress to wear anywhere!



Below you will see another cute floral option that can be worn to a variety of showers and/or outdoor festivities. You’ll also see this simple neutral dress, which is so versatile and can be a staple throughout spring and summer! Pair with some fun heels or cute flats and you’re ready to go! And it even has pockets!



Don’t forget the classic black and white options. We love the all-white outfit with that pop of color! You can always accomplish the goal of a “color pop” with jewelry, or even a bright colored pair of shoes.



Who else loves to throw on a comfy pair of jean shorts in the summer? The best part is that you can dress them up with a flowy top and fun shoes, or keep it casual with a t-shirt and flip-flops!


And of course the maxi dress is still in style this year! It should be a staple piece in your closet. It is another simple dress you can just throw on and go!


Last, but never least – jewelry can always take your outfit to the next level! Check out these gorgeous pieces we found at Mellie & Emilia! These are just a sampling of the MANY amazing choices in shop!


Be sure to stop in Mellie & Emilia to try on any of the items above and find so much more! Courtney and her team are ready to help you find your summer style!
