If you've never been to Cambridge (Massachusetts), I suggest taking the time to check it out someday. It's a lovely town, full of interesting people and places. Harvard Square, in particular, is chock full of great shops, from national chains (Aldo, the Body Shop) to great regional retailers (including Ward Maps, who I've mentioned before). An especially wonderful store is Mint Julep, which sells fascinating dresses and intriguing accessories, including these gems:
They're retro-cool, and absolutely perfect for springtime. Plus, they're versatile--a colorful punch to cheer up your workday suits, a cute accent for your picnic romper, and a ladylike touch for your church outfit. They're available in an array of other colors, also, so you can pick up a pair for every day of the week or maybe a matching pair for your best friend!
Buy through Mint Julep for $16.00.
