ATTAINABLE: Chandi and Lia Beaded Peterpan Collar Blouse
There's something about a Peter Pan collar that really grabs me every time. It's such a sweet look -- but to keep it from becoming too precious, I like pieces with a little twist. The beads on this top and the teardrop-shaped keyhole are just the details needed. Under a cardigan with a pencil skirt, this would make for perfect careerwear, while it would be fabulous for a night out with skinny jeans and heels.
A brother/sister duo from Australia, Camilla and Marc have been in business for ten years, and I definitely don't understand why I have yet to add any pieces from this line to my closet. From sweet, crisp cotton dresses to flirty bikinis, every look is absolutely gorgeous. These pieces are pretty and elegant but don't scrimp at all on practicality, making them ideal for everyday wear.

Everything about this dress is utter perfection. The lines are so clean, and the cotton looks fantastically crisp. I love the big box pleats and ladylike flared skirt, while the top is modern and fresh in an entirely new shape.

There are so many elements of this jacket that make it modern and truly fabulous. The silk fabric. The clean white shade. The bold contrasting black panels that form a pair of charming trompe l'oeil lapels. This would be the perfect topper for a cocktail dress, solving the constant issue of how to stay warm in a chic way.

I'm a sucker for dresses that look like they're composed of separates. This pretty frock has all the appeal of looking like you've put in the effort of slipping on two pieces in the morning while really, all you had to do was slide into one. The tiered skirt is playful, while the draped top is the epitome of sophistication.

I absolutely adore this dress. The shape is so fun, and the way that the stripes lay is cool and modern rather than seeming stale. I'm clearly coming down with spring fever, because I'm yearning to wear this dress with flat sandals on sunny days and with a killer pair of wedges for evening.
