Pretty and romantic looks are in. Light and flowy fabrics, feminine ruffles, floral embroidery and prints are more popular now than ever. I feel as if a lot of the styles I am seeing are reminiscent of the Gunne Sax day’s back in the 70’s. The pieces were something like a combination of a boho prairie girl. They key is to add some modern touches to the outfit to make it a bit more modern and stylish while keeping the vintage vibe. In my look I paired this airy cotton jumpsuit from Free People that has that boho prairie girl vibe and combined it with an oversized hat by Nick Fouquet, a metal handbag by From St. Xavier, and since I really wanted to add a Gypsy touch to this I went heavy on the jewelry, mixing some newer pieces like the bangles and earrings with some of my favorite vintage pieces like the rings and the one large bangle. Having pieces that are airy like this jumpsuit for the summertime heat is so important. Cotton’s and chiffons allow you to feel cooler while looking great.

One of my favorite spring styles is the dark romance style. It’s channeling so many of my favorite people and things. A little goth, contradicted with a little innocence, Saint Laurent, meets Stevie Nicks, bohemian meets western. There are plenty of ways you can describe this kind of look, but it certainly has a romantic vibe to it, and I love the natural-looking effortlessness of it, and how feminine and pretty it makes me feel. While shooting this look, I actually spun and danced around in circles singing “Rhiannon”. So maybe if you are planning to attend a music festival this Spring or Summer, this is a great look for that as well! I got a very similar dress in white as well and will for sure be wearing one of the two to a festival. Below you can shop my look along with pieces of a similar vibe to customize your own dark romantic look.
My Look: I paired this super affordable black maxi dress with these beautiful, drool-worthy Chloe boots that I couldn’t love without. I have been looking for a good pair of summer-friendly boots like this for literally a couple of years, and had no luck. Then I saw these beauties last month and was at Chloe later that day ordering my pair. They are a perfect fit for any bohemian babe look, but also can cross over into a rock-n-roll vibe, western vibe, or just a casual California girl jeans and t-shirt look. I threw on one of my “oldie but goodie” fedora hats that I customized with some satin fabric, and then finished the look with some vintage jewelry that I found at various places such at Etsy and flea markets.
