BB Dakota's colorful striped sundress ($64) is smack on-trend for spring. We especially loved the classic pleated skirt, which lends the piece a more ladylike look.

Cotton tank dresses are a spring must-have. This funky burnout tunic by Many Belles Down ($72) would make a stylish beach cover-up.

A striped cotton Baggu bag ($40) is perfect for summer picnics or weekend excursions. We especially dig the roomy front pouch and single flap closure.
