Rain or shine, spring has finally sprung and it’s time to put the pop back into your wardrobe. Here’s some spring and summer must haves I brought to The Rhode Show whether you feel like dressing to the nones or keeping it casual:
Jude Connally is an all-American lifestyle brand known for its vibrant prints and effortless styles. Available at Michael Hayes Newport. In the clip you’ll see the Kate Tunic Dress (on me above and in pic at right) in a navy and white classic stripe: This iconic style is bound to become a wardrobe staple with the universally flattering silhouette and effortless style. I love this classic long sleeve, A-line tunic dress with side slits. As it’s still a little chilly, I wore white skinny jeans underneath! Style tip: Pair with flats for a casual look or wedges for a more polished feel–no matter which, it’s an instantly put together look.
Julie Pinstripe Dress: (at left) Perfect for all of your spring and summer occasions. Pair with a wedge or heel to complete the look. This sleeveless dress features a contrast panel at the neckline and waist and the A-line skirt with pockets is ultra-flattering. I just featured this dress on Instagram!
Kristen Tunic Dress in wide stripe navy: Effortless dressing personified. For work or play, you’ll feel chic and pulled together in this classic tunic dress. Sleeveless with a mandarin collar and a relaxed easy fit through the waist and hips.
Spring sweaters from Talbots in Newport (https://www.talbots.com):
The Beaded Turtle Sweater: Whimsical and fun to wear, it’s the simple shape and comfortable cotton-blend fabric that make this piece so effortless and flattering. Now 30% off!
The Rhinestone Anchor Sweater: Hand-embellished anchors sparkle on the front of this classic crewneck sweater in everglade green or sophisticated silver.
Perfect spring footwear from Sole Desire in Newport:

The Betsey Johnson Jemi Lace Up Gingham Wedge & “Ahoy” tote (pictured top right)
And now, a weekend escape with Leota…these two pieces just launched and are on their way to being instant classics! The Ilana dress features cap sleeves and a reversible neckline. With a nipped waist and circle skirt, the Ilana dress is ultra-flattering and perfect for Memorial Day wi a red, white and blue color palette.
The gathered Maxi Skirt in essential jersey, which I’ll be featuring here on Newport Stylephile soon (and on Instagram at @newportstyle) has deep pockets, an elastic waist, and a full, flowing skirt. Wear everywhere, wash, repeat.
Shrimp & Grits: This growing brand celebrates Southern style and is committed to providing clothing that keeps the summer vibes rolling all year long. Pair super soft tees and tanks with white skinny jeans, Nantucket red orts or denim cuts offs and the only thing you’ll still need is the sand between your toes.
