You See Your Gypsy


Cleopatra-meets-Woodstock is exactly how I felt today in this outfit. A great feeling without a doubt, there's very seldom a time where I am equally as happy with my outfit, hair, and makeup. One's always better than the other, but not with this look. I was comfortable too- in these Forever 21 sandals which I am wearing once again, but are now unfortunately sold out. 

There's something about a white dress or top with beautiful colorful embroidery on it that draws my attention. This white embroidered gauzy dress from Savior-Faire is completely perfect in my book, and of all the boho dresses I've somehow already accumulated this season, this one is on the top of my list! I think I re-wore it the two days after wearing it here... I just wanted the whole town to see it's beauty! I really went overboard with the jewelry here too, with my lovely head chain from Forever 21, gorgeous beaded earrings from Nashelle, and my moon crescent necklace from Rachael Ryen that is chic, dainty, and gives any outfit a slightly witchy vibe.

Sweet Cherry Red


I don't know about you all, but ever since last summer, I can't get enough of the fruity prints! I want fruit prints on everything - my shoes, bags, dresses, everything! Since we have already started summer here in Florida, I'm already hopping on board for one of my favorite summer trends and I'm adding so many fruit prints to my wardrobe, starting with this gorgeous Chicwish dress! 

A cherry print mixed with a vintage-inspired dress silhouette just makes for the ultimate southern summer frock which is why I love this dress so well. I plan to wear it with white lace-up sneakers for days involving a bit of walking, but for today I just had to wear it with my favorite red heels from Call It Spring and my little old thrifted straw bag!

Vintage-Inspired With A Modern Aesthetic


These days, it seems that I've been shying away from fit-and-flare skirts and shorter heels. No reasoning behind it of course, but considering it's all I wore throughout last year, I've just been exploring different, more sophisticated styles... and wearing many bohemian looks, of course. I felt that it was time to revisit my past love of fit-and-flares when I came across this darling skirt from Chicwish. 

Gingham skirts have a sort-of vintage and southern look about them that I can't help but love so much. I just want to run around all summer in this lovely skirt, whether it be for a road trip out into the countryside or just picnicking with my best gals. This piece can be styled so many ways, but for this outfit I wanted to mix modern with vintage. 

I wore my thrifted saddle heels for the first time with this skirt for a vintage-inspired style, but kept on my thick black sunglasses and trendy mock neck crop top for a fun and modern aesthetic. 

Wearing: Aeropostale crop top, Chicwish gingham skirt, Thrifted saddle heels, ZeroUV sunglasses, Coco & Marie necklace + earrings, Michael Kors watch, Alex & Ani bracelets, Nila Anthony via Handbag Heaven bag.
