Months and months before each new season approaches, our buying team flies to New York City to pour over both the newest trends and the improvements on classics that each line we carry has to offer. The best part about it? We get a sneak peek at all the best that's to come! We've been dying to share what 2017 has to offer, so to kick off a new year, we're highlighting two of our very favorites:

Denim- perhaps the one article of clothing that's always both timeless and trending. In the past few years, we've seen the rise of the skinny jean, raw hems, ankle cropped jeans, rigid boyfriend styles etc... and we love them all. We can't help but notice a classic style that suddenly seems to be everywhere on Instagram, out on the streets, and on style-enthusiasts : the bootcut jean. We've always been an advocate for this style because they're flattering, look great with a variety of shoe styles, and elongate the leg. What's not to love? We have over twelve different styles of bootcut jeans from 7 For All Mankind's Kimmie Bootcut Jeans made from their revolutionary (B)air fabric, to Citizens of Humanity's classic Emmanuelle Slim Bootcuts, and Joes Jean's Honey Bootcut. Give us a call, or stop by Portland or Portsmouth and we'll help you find the right pair for you!

Gingham: whimsical, girly, and bold; we love gingham. We got a taste of the pattern with the recent blue/white gingham "Grayson" shirts from Frank and Eileen, but trust us when we say there's LOTS more coming very soon...(And it just might be from CP Shades.) Gingham has a way of instantly taking an outfit from stale and dark, to bright and energetic, and we can't wait to see it hanging in our closets! Follow us on Instagram, and you'll be the first to know when the gingham party arrives! These fresh picks are the very tip of the iceburg when it comes to spring arrivals, keep checking back for more!
