Rocker Hippie: Still Kicking


tee- DressCodes, leggings-AA, vest-Urban Outfitters, boots-Target

I don't know if you guys are sick of the faux-rocker, bo-ho look just yet, but I'm still with it. This means I can still "shop" in my closet. I've had most of these necklaces for years, but layer ten of them and they look like new! That American Apparel headband was a short-lived episode in trend-wear, but it can be reinvented as an armband! See? Almost as fun as swiping your credit card- without the guilt.

(Please excuse the fish-face – my discomfort in front of a camera displays as toothy grin or marine life expressions.)



The necklaces are a mix of H&M, Urban, River Island, and June Shin. The bracelet and rings are all second-hand.



I think this vest from Urban Outfitters (on the sale rack- woot!)will be a favorite summer layer. It doesn't provide any extra warmth, just hours of pure visual pleasure. A good summer uniform? Basic white tank, cut-offs and hippie vest. Now where is the Hotlanta weather?

You look gorgeous! :) No reason to feel uncomfortable in front of the camera, because it looks like camera loves you either way! hehe:)
You know I'm actually a bit obsessed with vests.I have one in pretty much every color. I need a decorative one like you're wearing though. It's such an easy way to add personal flare to any outfit.
