tangerine petals

Deep down, I am a hippie at heart…I think it’s the hair – there’s no denying it. Consequently, my clothes and accessories often reflect that attitude. I tend to gravitate towards bohemian nods, may it be a full-length dress, piles of rings, a slouchy top or lovely flower accessories. I find something so endearing and effortless about it. Besides that I really dig layering with dresses. It presents a fresh look and silhouette which can be done in a myriad of different ways thus allotting more mileage to a summer dress – and versatility is something we all like right? I must say, I am quite fond of this look (as well as this sweater which I will probably wear down until there are nothing but holes and will in all honesty continue wearing it far after) and am excited to see slouchy, poncho-esque shapes for fall fashion – perfect for us tree huggers.

  4. Gorgeous look - I wish I could pull clothes like these off. I love how you work this outfit; everything looks so relaxed and chic. And beautiful photographs as well. The chunky sweater over the long knit dress is fabulous.

  10. I love the tones of jewels you wear on this look. Actually, I'm fond of any style with a bohemian vibe since forever (certainly since the day I saw the hunchback of notre dame).

    Anyway, awesome jewels, awesome shirt, awesome hair, awesome smile.

  59. Pretty photo shoot, Diana! You have even more hair than I thought, and you really suit the voluminous layers. I see your point about that sweater; I'm pretty sure I'd wear it down to nothing as well!
    P.S. There's nothing to forgive, of course. ; ) I was just a trifle grumpy with the blogging world last week. Glad to have you onboard though! And I really hope I win that giveaway... ; )
