We're always pumped to discover homegrown talent right in our own backyard, and when we came across Annapolis-based line Kalivoda, we were smitten with the dreamy dresses and earthy-chic separates. Designer Lacey Wheatley says her inspiration comes from surfing, hiking in the woods, old books and images, traveling, and dreams, and she manages to touch on all those aspects through silhouettes that evoke wood nymphs and earth goddesses. These floaty, femme dresses are perfect for balmy spring days filled with lazy picnics and afternoon daydreaming — don't you agree? Click through for a preview, and if you're in the Annapolis area, you can catch the designer's pop-up sample sale at local boutique Vivo today through December 30.
