The heat is ON, and those UV rays are kicking it into high gear. Don’t forget the sunscreen when you’re out in the sun! With the heat index 100+, it is so uncomfortable outside by noon. It’s really hard to feel cute when you’re sweaty.
I know you’ve seen them out and about, especially at the pool. There is nothing that says “summer” quite like a floppy hat.
It’s a wonderful accessory that helps frame your face. I love it because it helps keep the sun out of my eyes and off of my face.
Of course, the shop carries them too! One of my favorites is the straw hat embroidered with “Do Not Disturb” around the rim. I need to be reading a book on the beach in that hat right NOW.
I also like this one with the pompoms (I’m predictable, I know) and pattered ribbon! That frayed straw brim is totally cute:
Still not sure you can pull it off? Here. That article can give you some ideas. My favorite tip is number 5 – Go All Out!
This week I am going to introduce the owner of The Pink Stag, Lindsay Kersh.
The Pink Stag is a beautiful little boutique under the same roof at Frillseekers. Yep, that’s right! It’s right here in Richmond!
Here is a little bit about Lindsay:
I was born in Charlottesville, grew up in Williamsburg and moved to Raleigh, NC to attend NC State (Go Wolfpack!). I have been involved with sales and marketing in one way or another since graduating. Owning a boutique has always been a dream of mine. The Shops at 5807 allow me to balance my other job and have a fabulous place in Richmond.
I am proud of being Southern and supporting companies from The South. When selecting brands I value quality the most. Finding items that are unique has been a learning experience.I’ve enjoyed working with smaller companies as well as some of those more established. I love bright prints, resort-ready wear and things with a touch country. I’m always on the hunt for “good gifts for men” and anything that’s distinctly southern.
Lindsay runs a great Instagram account. It’s a great mixture of outfit inspiration, merchandise, and her own personality. Some of her outfits of them even feature Frillseekers merchandise – but that’s not why I enjoy it so much! Her style is very chic and colorful. I love how she accessorizes and the outfits she puts together are just so cute.
Frill’s flamingo necklace matches perfectly with this top:
I admire Lindsay for believing it is important to support businesses that have a place close to her heart – in this case, southern businesses both big and small.
It allows her boutique to reflect her style in an even more personal way!

The days have been so rainy in RVA, so here’s a little dash on sunshine in the form of mustard yellow!
It’s a color people shy away from pretty often because nobody seems to think they look good in it. Fashionista NOW says the shade compliments darker skin tones and extremely pale skin tones the most – it can wash out your complexion, so definitely try it on before you purchase. That goes without saying!
Like most anything, if it’s done right it can totally be done.
Since you know I love color so much, it’s the perfect shade to just throw on to ‘spice’ up an outfit. It’s an absolute fashion statement! I scoured the shop for some mustard yellow before realizing we don’t have many options in this shade, surprisingly enough. What I did find was a win. Check out this purse:
Give yourself a pop of color and be your own little burst of sunshine!
What do I bring to work every day?
… My double chocolate chunk QUEST bar! I can’t wait to eat that thing as my dessert to homemade lunch!
I’d really like to bring my dog, River, though… Maybe someday- if she can fit us into her busy schedule with all her dog-walking play dates and stick-chewing.
