In honor of the recent ecommerce launch of Paper Crown, I thought it would be fun to spotlight a few of my favorite pieces from the Spring 2013 collection. I’m going to tell you what inspired me to design each piece and how I like to wear these items myself . . .
Design Inspiration: I am always on the search for a top that is not only a perfect everyday tee, but one that can be dressed up too. This was my solution! The Beam Blouse is a comfortable fit and can be worn anywhere. And because it is silk, it makes any look feel more pulled together compared to the average white tee.

Style Tip: The possibilities are endless! Dress it up by tucking it into a pencil skirt paired with a tailored blazer or throw it over a pair of jeans for a more casual take.
Wear It With: I personally love this top tucked into a flowy midi-length skirt, like the Netting Skirt, for a more ladylike look. Or pair it with the Serena Legging for a more edgy vibe.

Design Inspiration: I have fallen in love with midi-length skirts for spring. Nothing says springtime like a fun, twirly skirt!
Style Tip: I love self-tie skirts! Personally, I like to make a big bow at the center of my waist and wear it with a flirty top or even a basic tee.
Wear It With: The Beam Blouse looks great with this skirt, or even a plain tank.
Design Inspiration: I wanted to design a modern take on the classic wrap dress.
Style Tip: I think this is the perfect piece to wear almost anywhere. You can really dress it up and wear it for date night or go for a more casual look by pairing it with your favorite pair of flats.
