Boho Vibes.

I have been antcipating warmer temps for awhile now. Being a North Carolina native, you realize quickly that we have TWO long seasons all year, summer and winter- both extreme and not much fun. Fall and Spring are of course the nicest, but entirely too short, although Spring I am okay with because of the insane allergies that consume me. In that case, I am glad Spring is only a month long.

Needless to say I take advantage of those nice breezy days where it’s sunny but I can wear a cardigan over my dress and not be dying from a heat stroke. I am so ready to live in dresses and jumpsuits. Am I the only one, over wearing pants? Sorry Men, you don’t know how amazing it is.

This dress is one of my favorites, the color, the simplicity, how I can easily dress it up or down. The hat and necklace add a very Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen vibe – and they have been my style inspiration since I was 12, so naturally. The older I get, the more I go for a minimal look. Less is more my friends, less is more.

okay, so I had a major Bollywood moment with some of these pictures. Can I have my moment? 🙂 And a HUGE thank you to my lovely friend and amazing photographer, Kristina Allen. She seriously is the best. If you are in NC you can email her at: Kristina.kallen@yahoo.com

I swear, I was meant for a different era. My mother calls me a hippie all the time… and sometimes even a gypsy. If I could be in a headband all day, I probably would. I know the cooler temps are getting everyone excited for Fall, but it has been rainy and icky all week in NC. Luckily, the sun decides to come out and play mid-day, so I still get to incorporate some summer looks. I’ll take this post to also talk about my obsession with white. Whether it be eastern wear or tops, I constantly gravitate to white. There is something about a white shirt, especially white shalwar kameez, that makes me weak in the knees. I can’t explain the obsession but to me, everything looks better in white. It’s angelic yes, but it also feels brand new and I love that feeling.

So, here’s a look I put together last week. When it gets cooler, you can throw an oversized cardigan, pleather jacket, or a vest over this kind of top, and it will look great. These over-pieces are three completely different looks to style the outfit. I never go into American Eagle- not that there is anything wrong with AEO, I just feel too old for it, but I went in there to purchase a present earlier in the summer, and got this top for literally four dollars! It was meant to be. You will notice my jeans are AGAIN acid wash. I’m telling you, different era. I kept the look relatively simple, my headband is my focal point, obvi.
