Bohemian Springtime

It’s springtime in California! It’s the time of year that I bring out my favorite dresses and pull together a look that always ends up looking a little boho-chic. I thought it would be fun to go through our CCCOE team and create an outfit that speaks to me. Whether it is a trip to Mission Street or Venice Beach; this is the look that I want to wear. First I needed something to wear. I chose this dress by MurielleKnitwear Light and airy it is everything I love about spring fashion. This dress allows you to let go of all the heavy things you have been wearing and be free. For me the best part of spring is it is time to break out the sandals again. This spring the wedge is back in full force and this vintage pair from KMalinka are perfect. The heaviness of the wedge balances nicely with the soft delicate edge of the dress. Now that we have the dress and the shoes, we need some accessories to complete the outfit. A bright and colorful necklace will add a pop to the neutrals already being worn. I would spend hours trying to decide between these two from AnKaLi The first necklace is great because it features a variety of colors, which remind me of spring. This necklace brings lightness yet boldness whereas the second necklace is heavier and chunkier; it would add a completely different look to the style. For a purse I have chosen another lively pattern that will pop against the neutral base of this outfit. It also incorporates colors that are found in both necklaces. I love this bag by handsfullcreations Finally it’s time to add the final touch. It’s spring, which means that the sun is out. That means a great pair of sunglasses are needed to make this outfit appropriate for going outside. This 70s vintage pair is by classicsunglasses I hope these items have inspired you to go out and put together similar ideas in your style from CCCOE team members. Happy Spring!
