Flower Child

Casimira Acid Wash Vest Dress - Fashion Union* (now on sale for only £8)
Daisy Headband - Black Moon Sky* $36
Hey guys!!! I took these fashion posts before I came back to California, and it's about time I've posted them! 

I absolutely ADORE this dress and have been wearing it nonstop as it is so easy to wear and works with just about any look imaginable. You can definitely dress it up, or dress it down more casually like I've done here or even wear it to the beach! (I've done that too) 

I think it's SO cute and unique due to the tye-dye / marbling of the blue and purple on the dress which also makes it very forgiving. The pattern of the dress is eye catching enough to draw away from any flaws you may be concerned about, but not a bold print to drag attention to those areas if you know what I mean. I also really love the neckline of the dress as it is high, but doesn't choke you or make you look disproportionate. (This is also a nice dress to wear if you get a sunburn as it covers a lot of the burnt areas that you don't want exposed again to the sun.)
I love the fabric as it is a nice jersey cotton, but the dress is also flowy and loose on your body and manages to do it in a way that it doesn't look like a bag. I am not a fan of the T-Shirt dresses (on myself at least) because they just look extremely baggy and unflattering.


Although this may look like a candid picture (which it was) it really shows the cut of the dress front and back, and how it is a looser fit. It also shows off how I styled it with a pair of my favorite sandals (as I'm sure you all know by now) and this GORGEOUS daisy chain headband that was so kindly sent to me by the wonderful Kristin from Black Moon Sky which I am going to do an entire post about VERY soon (I've just been so busy!!!) I am totally in love with this headband as you can wear it as a headband, wrap it around a bun, undo, ponytail, or really style it any way you like due to the wire in the band. It really gives any look a boho, more put together vibe and I absolutely love it!

Would love for you guys to check out the Fashion Union website (as in previous posts I've featured things that I've bought with my own money from there as well! Which is a testament to their beautiful clothes.) and Kristin's shop! It is a gorgeous shop with the most beautiful vintage items. I want SO MANY things from her store it's ridiculous and she always has amazing photography showing off the styled items. It's even just inspirational looking through her clothes (thank you again Kristin!!) I will have a post up all about her shop extremely soon!

I absolutely love this dress for the summer and if you guys have any suggestions for summer dresses you love let me know!

    I'm all for comfort in the summer but loose clothing tends to make me look shapeless and stocky. Might try this for a beach cover up or something :)
