Hello ladies,

As you have all seen my style, once in awhile, I may wear something a bit unexpected. Florals are my favorite, and I have a bunch in my closet, even way before it was a trend. This style on the dress, is something a little different for me, kind of a boho look, as the cut is empire, but the flounce and flowy shape of it , gives it that style or look. This was taken at one of our favorite Greenways and I often take the pups here to walk. The day was sunny, hot, and I thought of this dress as it is airy and light. Now, all I need is one of those floral crowns or headbands, and either go skipping or dancing without care down the greenway to give it that true 70s vibe. Being a musician, I can honestly say one of the best things to come of this era was the music as well. Jimi Hendrix, alot of guitar music… I think we think more of the music perhaps of this era than the clothes, don’t get me started on the polyester bellbottoms and yellow button down shirt I wore to school then!

DressL Old, LOFT( similar) Sandals, Clark Artisian line,( similar in different color) Earrings: Charming Charlies: Hobo Bag: Hayden Harnett NYC,( same bag, different color) Nail polish: 2 shades of Essie, Necklace: Jewel Box

Have a great day!!

    “Boho-Chic” is all the rage right now – and that’s fine with me. I wore it once; I can do it again LOL!
    You look so pretty in that gypsy dress. Let’s show the younger generation how 70’s cool is really done 😉

      See, I must be not informed of some of the trends, as I didn’t know that. You could certainly do it, you would rock the look. Thank you for the kind words, I will have to get out my flares next! :-)) Have a great week.

    You look so lovely in this dress. Fits perfect to you and your wonderful red hair! 🙂
    I like this romantic and feminine touch, the ruffles and that you can also wear it strapless. The sandals are beautiful, very cute with this flower.
    The color of the nail polish is gorgeous. I’ve also bought a new bright blue nail polish for this summer.

    have a wonderful week dear

    I know what you mean – the style might be a little different but that’s what I often feel about really summery clothes. They get us into the mood for wearing something more romantic, hippie or cool. I think it’s great to follow these vibes and just enjoy the sunshine and summer!
    And the dress with its beautiful colours suits you so well!
