Hey there lovelies,
Summer is approaching slowly like sweet cinnamon.  It’s time to appreciate nature and all it’s natural beauty. It’s not always about having what you want, it’s appreciating what you have and enjoying it. Like the warm sun.

Sunglasses @ Target

Love and peace is all around me. Let’s take a trip back to the late 60s, early 70s. After Woodstock the young idealists made their utopia a reality through their fashion. Love and peace was the motto. Flowers in their hair, gladiator sandals and oversized sunglasses… the flower child was born. The U.S. had been involved in the Vietnam war since the mid 60s and as the 70s began, the U.S. population wanted out. This was a powerful moment for the individualist who wanted to express their political views through fashion.
Fashion always follows historical events. People at the time wanted to “Make love not War”. Woodstock festival preached peace and music in the late 60s. This was a big influence on the youth in the early 70s. They went from the obsessed micro mini skirt in the 60s, Twiggy the famous English model wore. To the 70s free-fitting bohemian silhouettes that women chose for themselves, they broke out of the norm.
Fashion repeats it’s beauty all of the time. We have reached a time of fashion history where everything goes. You can wear any era and still be in fashion today. Platforms, feathered hair, flares, denim, flower crowns, scarves, socks with boots, pussybow blouses, chokers, prints, pleats, oversized glasses, rainbows and the list goes on and on.  So much detail and lots of fun.

Dress @ KII Bboutique

Mustard yellow lace dress was made and sent down from the fashion Gods this week! The flower detail is exquisite and the deep V in the front… Wow! My 60s and 70s vibes were flowing and my bonez were calling out for Woodstock. Then came to mind the perfect nude platform sandals that would be that groovy balance to the dress and they make me tall so win, win here gals.Since we are outside soaking up the sun enjoying natures beauty, I paired some oversized round sunglasses.
