'Tis the season for wool sweaters, tea cozies, thick socks, hearty soups, and snowy walks.

Or...an escape to paradise! ¡Feliz Navidad!

If you're in the later camp (or would like to be in spirit), this breezy sun dress is for you. Join Erin Elizabeth in a barefoot stroll on the beach, sipping margaritas poolside, trimming the Christmas palm tree, and dancing the night away at a tropical holiday feast. Doesn't that sound nice? 100% white cotton with colorful flowers lining the skirt. The perfect coverup for a polka-dot bikini. Can be belted or left as a shift. Fits over your head.

Special thanks to Merritt Made and Tali Blankfeld.

Find Karen dressed perfectly for any situation: a day at the office, a night on the town, fancy lunch with the ladies, or taking breakfast to go while wandering the lonely city streets.

Let's face it: back to school season is the best. Whether or not you're technically a student, it feels good to treat yourself to a new notebook and a pretty fall outfit. The Kate Dress is feminine and full of energy, perfect for the first day of class, a first date, or a first stroll through your new city.  This bright pinky coral silk suiting is not for wallflowers. Sash is double-sided and looks equally great tied in the front or back, and can be folded or gathered to achieve your perfect pink-to-brown ratio. Fully lined, zips up the back, full skirt hits at your knee.

Days are longer and gardens are in bloom. Spring rains are replaced with sunshine (any day now!) and here in Portland there is just nothing better than being outside. Find Naomi in a refreshing turquoise monitoring her vegetable sprouts, cycling to work, or designing jewelry in a sunny window. This simple cut is flattering to many figures. A pleat down the front of the skirt creates movement, and it's all topped off with a long belt and an asymmetrical button flap on the shoulder. 100% cotton, zips up the side.

Look! Up in the air! It's a bird! No, wait. it's a plane! Nooo...it's a flying dress? Wait, no...it's a slip! That's it, a cute slip on a clothesline! A bright orange silk slip trimmed with lovely purple lace and brocade. Let it peek out under a little black dress, or keep the colorful fun all to yourself. You choose the length. No pockets on this one, but comes complete with built in Whoopi Cushion. (Not really...April fools!)
