Woodstock in my Dreams

Hello! The styles of the late sixties and early seventies inspired me while styling this dreamy bohemian look. I transported back to Woodstock in my mind as I selected the pieces to perfect this look.

I recently discovered this eye-catching romper while on one of my Ashby trips and I instantly fell in love with it. I immediately grabbed it and headed to the dressing room and when I slipped it on, I knew that it had to be mine. Its mustard yellow color reminiscent of decades past, breezy boho floral print and bell sleeves all called out to me. It feels very "Jimi Hendrix in the sixties" to me. Discovering pockets in the romper further delighted me because truly what's better than a dress/romper with pockets?

I styled it with a pair of golden platform boots and a shaggy Free People sweater. I accessorized with turquoise rings, statement celestial earrings and a simple golden pendant necklace. Cozy thigh-high socks, a stylish green purse and colorful shades completed the look.

Hello! What's one of the best parts of having fashion-minded friends? Being able to raid their wardrobes! I borrowed this gorgeous maroon dress from my friend Hannah for this photoshoot with one of my favorite Richmond photographers, Rachel Dwyer. The eye-catching berry hue and effortless silhouette of the dress instantly drew me to it in Hannah's wardrobe.

I layered a vintage fringe jacket with the dress to create the seventies aesthetic that I strive for. A pink paisley vintage scarf, boho wedges and yellow sunglasses also contributed to the retro mood of the look. I accessorized with a golden chain necklace, a couple vintage rings and eye-catching portrait earrings. A swipe of Barbie pink lipstick and my favorite watch perfected the look.
