last week, we showed how to style these two crochet dresses. this time there’s four new outfits, two of them are relaxed and casual and two are on the fancier side. which look is your favorite? i really love the romantic lace dress!

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!
hello there. i’ve been away from the office for a few days working on an exciting project with one of my favorite brands, free people. very excited to show you more of the photos from this trip to another land. check back soon! hope you have a great day. - bri
ps. how amazing is this pink cottage!?
my style’s been changing quite a bit lately. i used to love wearing bright vintage dresses (and still do on special occasions) but i’ve been really transitioning to more neutrals lately. black and white with pattern has especially been my jam. this is an outfit i would wear day-to-day…and a cool flower collar that kristen made me.
i think this graphic boob top by gravel and gold is supremely awesome. those black pixie pants are stretchy and from j.crew. and let me say, they are a life saver! dress em up or down, eat a big meal and they still fit, and wear them pretty much everyday. that’s my relationship with them.
