Take Note with BasicGrey & A Winner!



Hi everyone! Did you all see the news last week? BasicGrey announced the release of two brand new collections on their blog. And today, I have a card to share with you featuring the first of these new lines, South Pacific.

If you weren’t dreaming of warmer days and tropical waters before, you may just be now. South Pacific is the perfect summer getaway collection, filled with bold island colors, travel-inspired ephemera, and exotic florals.  I don’t know about you all, but I am ready for the beach!

One of my favorite things about this collection is the slightly vintage feel to some of the imagery. There are old timey travel tickets and stubs that are a definite nod to the past, mixed with bold, retro prints. And the colors are intense. I’m thinking…. Lily Pulitzer….

I can so see some of these designs on Lily’s classic resort wear, can’t you?
