STYLE 113 / FREE PEOPLE
i have always loved free people’s clothing for its laid back bohemian appeal. the editorial spreads in their catalogs make me want to transport myself to a bungalow in the woods and wear free flowing dresses with bare-feet. we took an over-night trip to Topanga Canyon where heather captured some of my favorite looks from their current collection. it was the perfect location for the shoot: colorful houses, tree forts and all sorts of quirky details.
the looks we’re sharing today involve the same crochet dress in two colors. this dress is part of my ideal summer wardrobe, loose and easy. i took the white version with me on my recent trip to thailand and it was the perfect post-beach dress to throw on over my bathing suit. the first look we styled with an open cardigan sweater (that was so cozy it felt like a blanket!).
shop this look: free people zig-zag stripped sweater with fringe, original is sold out, similar option available here. worn over free people slip dress in white with charm necklace. moccasins by vans.
the versatility of this dress is also great, i am really into purchasing pieces that can be worn multiple ways. party dresses are fun but sometimes you just need to invest in pieces that are functional. for the second look, we layered the dress with an oversize long-sleeved tee. i’m normally hesitant about wearing too many shapeless items but somehow these pieces offered enough structure to make it work with all of the layering.
i’ll be sharing four more looks in two style posts over the coming week so stay tuned!
