The first post-MDW weekend of the year is here, and you know what that means: it’s time to put on your prettiest brunch attire and head for the nearest spot with outdoor dining, a refreshing drink and an instagramable backdrop. Enter: Flynn Skye. Each and every piece will have you looking and feeling on top of the summer-weekend world.

A go-to brand for It Girls all over the country, we have had SUCH a great time working with Flynn Skye to bring you the very best #OOTD inspo. From solids to prints, and minis to maxis, it’s safe to say that everything from this brand is #modelapproved. Here’s a look back at some of our very favorite weekend/date/brunch/prettymuchanythinganywhere-worthy looks:

How do you describe your personal style?

My style is hippie meets boyfriend’s clothes, accessorized with vintage jewels and high top converse.

What do you love to do on the weekends?

My perfect weekend would include chowing down on my mom’s banana pancakes and then spending the day at the beach frolicking in the waves and playing football in the sand.

When did you know you wanted to be a model?

I never even thought about modeling until an agent approached me while I was stuffing a burrito in my mouth at my favorite Miami taco stand… go figure!

What excites you most about being a model?

I love that modeling is about telling a story, one of my favorite things to do. I like working with artistic people who inspire me and have a fresh eye.

What item in your closet could you never part with?

Jewelry passed down from my grandmother and my mom.

What’s your favorite hair or makeup trick?

Sea spray is my savor. I love a beachy wave so I just spray it on wet hair after the shower and when it’s dry I look like I just left the beach. I am also really digging that half up – half down hair dos are coming back in style.

Do you have any hidden talents?

I can pick up just about anything with my toes!

Tell a random, funny story of something that’s happened to you in the past.

In college I lived with 5 girls and 5 boys lived next door. We got into a pranking war and it all came to a head one night when the girls and I were out on a date function. We came home to find all our furniture from our living room on our front lawn and all the yard trees and shrubs had been uprooted and placed in our living room. The boys won to say the least…

Part-proven by science and part-being a girl, the colors you choose to style yourself in can affect your mood throughout the rest of the day. And since we always strive to wake up on the right side of the bed, we love that the fresh, vibrant patterns from Flynn Skye pretty much guarantee an awakening of our mind, body and spirit for a feels-like-Friday mood (even if it’s only Tuesday, ahem).

Exhibit A: Diane transcended peace and love vibes in this stunning halter dress, which she described as perfect for an impromptu shopping excursion or an after-hours beachside walk. A hiking enthusiast herself, it’s easy to see why Diane looks so content in Flynn Skye’s earthy tones, telling us she loves the brand’s bohemian, floral and romantic elements.

Exhibit B: Lauren, who usually rocks hair reminiscent of a chicer, more modern Sporty Spice, had soft, straight hair when she got to raid the Flynn Skye Style Closet. So she went with this artsy and romantic magenta paisley in the Err Night Mini Dress, complete with super sexy but subtle details. We’re pretty sure this dress would kill it for any date- night or day (no really though, you might want to save this for dates where your man is heart healthy, because this look is sure to cause some palpitations).

It’s no surprise that Lyzy and Sakura looked as though they were en route to take a stroll on the beach in some of designer and founder Amber Farr’s amazing creations.

Lyzy looked absolutely ethereal in a breezy jumper, which she styled perfectly with groovy platforms, neutral makeup and low-maintenance hair. Similarly, Sakura flowed naturally like a goddess in a chic patterned maxi.

Needless to say, you’ll be ready for whatever excursions come your way when rocking Flynn Skye (and something tells us they wouldn’t have it any other way).
