Summer is here … Our Must Have items for summer! 

Were you able to make it to our very first fashion show? If not, keep reading – we are going to show you some of our personal favorites from that night, and if you were able to go, still keep reading, because we are still sharing some newness here! 

Our Must Have items for Summer are simple: a hat for day or night, a few key pieces to add to your closet and the best accessory for those beach days and nights!

This Raffia Straw Hat might be in almost everyone’s closet who works at OPD. The fit is perfection, the flexibility of the straw is perfection, should i just say that the hat is perfection, because it is! Add it to your collection and you will not be disappointed. 

For our clothes, well it is so hard to pick just one to be our must have. But here we go, with a few of our favorites! This outfit rocked by Aly was in my pile before the day was over, Bella Linen High Rise Short and Scoop Neck Tee. For a more casual look, Kim is wearing the ILY tee  and it is golden. It can be worn tucked into a maxi skirt, layered under a flannel, or paired with ripped denim. This has been by far, the most popular tee! Lastly, Cris showed us that comfy can still be cute and stylish! These Ces Femme wide leg sweats are the bomb. They are so soft, and paired with the Free People You Rock tee, they can take you from dinner on the beach, to your couch watching the latest series to hit Netflix. 

There are lots of accessories and far too many to name, but one of our favorites for the summer is a Sandcloud towel. The mission behind this company is so inspirational. They are on a journey to save marine life! Learn more about their mission here.  We have been a fan of these towels and they were part of our very first collection back in the old store. Naturally, we just had to have them again this year and do you know — they will float in the pool! What?! 

We could go on and on about our new summer collection, but you just have to come see! You might just find a new must have that we haven’t included. You can shop in-store, or from the comfort of your couch! And if you are wondering, another fashion show? You bet! Coming back in the fall for a fall/Holiday collection – think pumpkins, leaves, scarves and sweaters. We will share as soon as we have booked a date. Until then, let’s soak up these summer days, shop the summer collection here, and make summer 2021 one to remember!
