Summer is almost here and we are definitely cashing in on our fair share of sunny warmth here in Los Angeles. There really is something special about the sun this time of year. Throughout all other seasons our neighborhood rocks 80’s and 90’s gear like we still live in it, but summertime approaches and the flower child comes out in everyone.
Yeah, yeah, our family is pretty hippie already considering that I no longer wash my hair and I breastfeed my toddler, but you don’t have to go as green as we have to know a silk turban scarf and flowy floral skirt looks good.
Clementine loves a good bohemian hippie look when summer sunshine hits too. She’s been asking for dresses more and more lately and completely fell in love with this one that my parents brought back for her from St. Thomas. She’s worn it three times in the past week alone. I love the cheery, bright colors and the jagged pixie-type cut on the hemline.
The dress pairs really well with her huarache sandals from Zara (which are super adorable, but fair warning they are not well made to stay on toddler feet). You know how much I like to mismatch, so it was a clear choice to accessorize the loud outfit with scarf that just as loud and bright.
What She Wore:
ECO Factor: Thrifted (reuse/reduce)
Gypsy dress (gifted to us), thrifted silk scarf, huarache sandals from Zara
Technically the outfit isn’t as eco as we would have liked. Yes, we did find the scarf at the thrift store, but that is really the only environmentally friendly feature to speak of. We did, however, spend the morning DIY-ing some eco jewelry out of thrifted wooden beads and other upcycled material, so that should count for something!
