20 Aug Turning Heads Linkup – Soft Surroundings Boho Maxi Dress – Late Summer
How is your week going?
I’m going to be sharing some Late Summer fashions from Soft Surroundings and this dress caught my eye from the start. Anyone else for Boho vibes? Yesterday I wore Boho, so it’s a week of boho fashion’s friends!
We went to see the movie “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” over the weekend, and speaking of boho, it was about a time when counter culture reared it’s head, and what if Charles Manson and his hippie groupies took another path instead of Sharon Tate’s home the evening in 1969. I don’t want to share any spoilers, but I was quite amused, as the theatre in the afternoon was quite quiet, and the couple in front of us was in their 20s.
As we got in the elevator, the guy said he wasn’t quite sure what the movie was about, didn’t know what he just saw. I explained to him about Charles Manson’s hippie followers had murdered Sharon Tate and the people in the house in the Hollywood hills in 1969. I explained why the movie’s circumstances would have changed American History. He looked at me and smiled while nodding his head saying, “Oh, ok. Thanks! Now I get it! ” I thought it was funny as I was under the impression everyone knows the history of Charles Manson and the Tate murders. I guess not if you are in your 20s.
It was quintessential Quentin Tarantino and if you enjoy his movies, you will enjoy this. It was smart and creative with some violence, typical of the director.
Speaking of hippies, this boho style was love at first sight. On the Soft Surroundings website, about the Esparanza Dress “this maxi set off by vintage florals and a special novelty button at the front. Lightweight crinkle-gauze with smocked waist for a great fit and elastic sleeve hems for option of blousoning. ”
I received it in the mail, and let’s just say, “I dug it.”
I love the vintage style print and the gauze waistline, accentuating the waist. The pink, blue and purple brooch is attached to the dress and came with an extra… you know I love my brooches!
The material is very soft and the length perfect on me, being 5 foot 9.
I had to choose my braided, tasseled purse from Rebecca Minkoff for this look.
My soft pink flower earrings add to the flower power of this bohemian look, and fyi, they are very light!
Braided espadrille tan sandals add to the look.
It was 90+ when I took these photos, so I will wait a bit to share the other more Fall-like pieces from Soft Surroundings.
How to Transition this Dress to Fall
What I consider now when buying, is how can I wear things multiple seasons.
I could add a moto jacket or long cardigan duster.
I would also add a different bag and a pair of boots or booties.
Now all I need is that floral crown! Perhaps I should have been dancing around the field barefoot for full effect?
