timeless breeze


{thrifted dress, Hollister sweater Steve Madden boots, Pins and Needles scarf, BR tote, Tanessi necklace, F21 sunnies}

This has got to be one of my favorite dresses. It is literally timeless. I purchased it in a thrift store and swear it came from the 60's or 70's, the fibers are pretty worn, and the polyester feel makes me think of this breezy number floating down Haight-Ashbury. The muted color palette made me think of Chloé at the time this dress was purchased (4 years ago), and the $3 price tag didn't hurt either. It was a bit long, so I cut off about ten inches, and now wear it everywhere, in every season.

What's your go to timeless piece?

  14. Seriously LOVE that dress...so bohemian chic..what a great find!
    And nothing tops a great pair of cowboy inspired boots...it is a little too hot in jersey for them...but whenever there is a cool day..I throw my boots on! They look so great w dresses.
    Have a great week girl!
