Sixties Floral Doc Martens

Hello! Today, I spiced up a little black dress with a pair of sixties floral Doc Martens. But this isn't just a typical black dress- the asymmetrical cut and breezy shape make this little black dress one-of-a-kind. I layered a black fringe kimono and cream-colored faux fur coat with the dress to add warmth. Underneath, I slipped on a pair of black opaque tights. 

The real emphasis of the look is on my sixties-inspired, floral Doc Martens. The bold graphic print and bright colors of these boots simply have me swooning. I love the hippie sixties vibe that they give off. I can't wait until it gets warm enough to don these boots with breezy sundresses.

Winter Blues

Hello! Can it be spring yet? I have the winter blues and don't know how much more of this cold, dreary weather I can take. And I want to break out all of my spring clothing. I'm dreaming of platform sandals, sundresses and fringe kimonos. And of course, the gingham and graphic floral trends. I'm hoping to make a trip to Buffalo Exchange soon in order to try to sell some of my clothing that I don't wear anymore and update my spring wardrobe with a few new pieces. 

This look is from this past Monday. I donned a bohemian, navy embellished top with a pair of black denim. I kept the dark line of the denim and styled a pair of black booties with the look. I added a touch of free-spirited glam with a blue-gray faux fur jacket and slightly hidden golden coin necklace.

Currently Swooning Over: The 1970's

1970s

Hello! I'm currently swooning over the 1970s- this spring, I'm looking towards 70s culture and fashion for inspiration. Woodstock, musicians such as Jimi Hendrix, the film Love Story, hippie VW vans are all inspiring my recent aesthetic. There are a few elements of 1970s fashion that I can't get enough of: bell bottoms, fringe, bright embroidery, peasant dresses, stone jewelry, clogs and round sunglasses.

1970s

70s inspired silhouettes strutted down the runway during the spring/summer 2015 runway shows and are definitely trending this spring- especially in the form of free-flowing, bellbottom pants. I love bellbottoms in unique bohemian prints like the ones featured above. Additionally, fringe is making quite the statement this season. I love fringe on tops, bags and skirts in particular. Extra points for fringe pieces in neutral, 70s inspired colors such as tan and black.

I'm also swooning over bright embroidery and peasant dresses this spring. Bright embroidery on breezy tops and tunics reminiscent of the 70s are popping up all over the place this spring; I love the playful energy that they emit. And I don't think that I could be any happier with the revival of peasant dresses. The loose breezy style and hippie influence of these dresses make them absolutely irresistible. Peasant dresses are even better in bohemian prints such as paisley.

70s inspired accessories such as stone jewelry, clogs and round sunglasses are also making quite a splash this season. I've recently added a few new pieces of stone jewelry to my wardrobe and can't wait to show them off all spring. Now, I only need add a few more pairs of flatforms and clogs to my wardrobe.
