Every Monday at the Cut, we're highlighting one great purchase that won't take up your whole paycheck. If you're looking for something to splurge on instead, check back every Friday for an item that's absolutely worth eating ramen noodles for the rest of eternity.
That maxidress you wore the breaks off of last year is probably in dire need of some rest. To replace it, look no further than this light and airy dress from Family Affairs. The indie clothing label is helmed by mother-daughter design duo Nina and Kaya Egli, and has already earned a following on social media with their retro, feminine aesthetic. Their Legends Palm Dress, a hand-printed maxi outfitted with flutter sleeves, is prime for twirling, mimosas, and summer Instagram shots with petunias. Wear it with tall espadrilles for extra height to balance out the length, and complete the look with a delicate layered necklace.
