When The Wind Was Green

Wearing: eShakti dress, Michael Kors via Mara Vintage Shop bag, Thrifted heels, Vintage earrings, Target hat.

I feel like it's been forever since I've worn a lovely little vintage-inspired dress like this one from eShakti. While I enjoy trying other styles and mixing things up a bit, I do love revisiting my favorite look of wearing a vintage or vintage-inspired dress, kitten heels, and a big ol' hat. I was so excited when eShakti offered me a dress from their site, because while I had never heard of their shop before they emailed me, as soon as I started browsing around I found that I was completely in love with just about every dress on there. They have so many gorgeous vintage-inspired styles and most of them are in a variety of beautiful colors, like this dress! Oh, and the best part is that the dresses are size customize-able, so you can either select from the standard sizes XS-6X, or add in your custom measurements. After that you put in your height, and select your preferred sleeve type and dress length. For my dress, I just selected the "as shown" option for each because I loved the way it looked already, but it's so amazing that you get to have a variety and pretty much make your own dress! I am absolutely in love with this site and recommend all of you to go check it out!

Floral Kimonos + Chevron Bags

Wearing: 9th & Elm oversized kimono, East & Lo dress, Miche chevron crossbody bag, Nasty Gal sandals, Infinitine necklace.

Today was an extremely windy day, so I decided to wear my new oversized kimono from 9th & Elm, just because I knew it would be blowing everywhere, and it made for a pretty neat picture, even though none of them turned out good enough for my post. I paired it with a lovely pale pink dress from East & Lo, and what's cool about this gorgeous summer dress is that the slip underneath has built in shorts made of a thin cotton material, which makes it perfect for windy days like it was for me today, because I'm pretty sure every girl has experienced her dress being blown up by the wind which is the complete worst, but this way it wont be so bad because of the shorts! I also did a bit of pattern play and carried my chevron bag from Miche with the kimono, and it made for a very cute and colorful summer combo!

Southern Summer

Wearing: Others Follow maxi dress, Thrifted denim shirt, Miche bag, Thrifted cut-out oxfords, Elise M Collection bracelets + belt (30% off entire purchase with code "carly30"), Infinitine necklace, Target hat.

I was really wanting to go for more folk and country-vibed look with this lovely lace maxi from Others Follow. It's a sleeveless dress and has a light slip underneath the lace, so it makes for the perfect summer maxi! I paired mine with a cute denim shirt tied in front, a belt and bracelets from Elise M Collection, a chevron printed cross body from Miche, and also an adorable dainty necklace from Infinitine! I felt really casual and comfy but looked stylish and I got so many compliments which is always nice!
