    If you need a siesta due to the bustle and hustle of your daily life, slip into this light and breezy skirt. Named after Pittsburgh's Caribbean-inspired bed and breakfast The Parador Inn, this garment will take you to a 19th century mansion decorated in rich mahogany antiques and waving green palms. Cut in a classic, feminine A-line, this cotton skirt, with its pattern of clear sky blue and sun ray yellow, will twirl around you as you step to a jazzy Cuban beat in the sandy courtyard. Tie a bow at the empire waist with the attached, cream-colored sash, then take a seat on the veranda with a pineapple cocktail and a slice of key lime pie. You're never too far from an island escape in this skirt!

    I like to fancy myself an adventurer, someone who strikes out into the unknown, and sails the ship of my life into exciting new waters. Frankly though, I'm not as much a maverick as I'd, perhaps, like to be. Maybe I need something to inspire me - something like this dress! Clothed beneath the comfy cotton of this carnation pink dress, I think I'd feel inspired to do anything! It's slate blue, bow-fronted, sailor-style collar, would give me the look of a seafaring explorer, and its adorably fun print of white and blue sailboats and stars would liven up my spirits any time I caught sight of it. I'm going to don this demi-lined dress, made by British designer Yumi, with coaster-sized sunglasses, canvas sneakers, a sturdy carryall, a white belt over the elasticized waist, and a theoretical sword holstered at my hip, and set out to do any number of great things, from safariing through the city streets, to joining Virgin Galactic's first trip into outer space! - Hannah, Fashion Writer

    Turn your face to the sun, much like the leaves of a flowering heliotrope, and observe the breathtaking beauty of this lightweight, sleeveless dress. An allover print of lavender, fuchsia, pale pink, and minty green flowers blossom against a cool black background to create a lush pattern replete with traditional charm. Wide shoulder straps, a full, pleated skirt, a discreet zipper up the skirt's back, and a slight scoop neck cultivate a prize-winning silhouette. Propagate your penchant for pleasing peculiarities, thanks to this cotton frock's unique, center back wedge cutout embellished by two sashes that tie together into a beautiful bow. Attract butterflies and compliments alike when you pair this printed dress with shiny Oxfords, adorable ankle socks, a few silver accessories, and a vintage denim jacket.

    As you coast down Route 13 into Ithaca, NY - a place not so far from where I grew up - you'll glimpse, as Ithacans might say, a 'gorges' sight to the right of the road. Thundering gently down the side of its sloping, rocky base, Buttermilk Falls is a summer hangout as idyllic as a Rococo painting. Beneath the steamy sun of the humid, upstate summer, you'll see the Falls roaring with activity - swimmers splashing in the pool below the falls, bathers bronzing on its damp rocks, hikers hopping up its breezy trail, and so on. It's a place I quite like, and, you know what? I think you'd take a shining to it, too. I'm hoping to make it there this summer. Maybe you'll be able to join? I'll pack a picnic lunch, throw a swimsuit and towel into a tote, and hand you these sweet little Kensie Girl shoes to wear. Their delicate bevvy of navy, saffron, white, and cherry red ribbon, which swoop and angle down the beige fabric sides into a multi-layered bow at the toe, echo the carefree calm of a Buttermilk afternoon. Their wee wedge and vegan-friendly composition make them ideal for a post-picnic stroll in the Commons and an evening dinner at the scrumptious, vegetarian Moosewood Restaurant. Even if you won't be able to join me, I still hope you'll wear these shoes this summer because, take my word for it, they'll be perfect for all your plans! - Hannah, Fashion Writer

    In my desperate attempt to earn whatever scholarship money I could before college, I awkwardly entered myself in the local 'Colleen Pageant.' This event is an annual tradition in the region where I grew up, and awards one high school senior girl of Irish descent a scholarship, a trip to Ireland, and top billing on the most important St. Patrick's Day float, for her academic excellence, community outreach, and dedication to her Irish heritage. Sarcastic and sporty, I was hardly the pageant type - especially when you threw in that I was barely an 1/8th Irish and had a very Greek last name. But I qualified, and asked myself, "Why not?" I wish I could tell you that I strutted confidently on stage in my beautiful green gown only to answer the question I chose out of a hat with flawless eloquence. However, I donned a long emerald velvet dress that was much too old for my seventeen year old self while squeamishly stumbling over my answer, so I was not chosen to be the girl atop the St. Patty's Day float. When I spotted this vibrant kelly green frock, I couldn't help but fondly remember those terrifying moments when I attempted to answer what three things I would take with me if I found myself stranded on a deserted island. With feminine ruffled detailing to accent its deep V-neck and a detachable belt tied sweetly in a side bow, this alluring dress will become my go-to March 17th attire. With a gold charm and light shrug, I'll proudly wear this delightful dress, and finally feel confident in the knowledge of who I am and where I've come from. By Max and Cleo. -Sarah, Fashion Writer

    I grew up listening to Prince. 'Purple Rain,' 'Raspberry Beret,' 'Let's Go Crazy' - these all bring back memories of taking all the cushions off the couches, placing them on the floor, and performing sets of faux-choreographed acrobatic routines upon them. Perhaps his lyrics are not meant for the ears of babes, but his music is ageless. My love for Prince lives on into my twenties, and I imagine that it will continue indefinitely, as will my love for anything that reminds me of Prince - even if I've made the connection myself, as with this dress. This brilliant blue PepaLoves frock will never leave me standing alone in a fashion world that's so cold, for its super cute composition, complete with a bow-adorned sweetheart neckline, swingy skirt, and figure-flattering elasticized waist, will always stylishly support me, while the fantastical print featuring gentle white birds bearing tiny red heart wreaths let me know - this is what it looks like... when doves 'fly.' -Natalie, Fashion Writer
