Spring Came Early – Spell & the Gypsy Collective

The weather down South is crazy right now! At the time of these pics it was in the low 60’s but now we are back into cooler temps so I took advantage of the warmer weather and busted out my semi-new Spell maxi dress.

The slits are a bit higher than I had originally thought so I’m thinking this dress works best on us petite gals. It really is a gorgeous dress though; the print and colors are beautiful as is the length and the back which is backless which I love! Also the sleeves are flared which really fits in well with my love for the 70’s looks that are popular for the Spring-Summer season that’s ahead of us.

dress: Spell & the Gypsy Collective, heels: B Brian Atwood (very similar), necklace: Kendra Scott, hand-chain: Velina Jewelry, sunglasses: Triple Graces
When I posted my love for the new Zara campaign the comments had mixed reviews, some people love the Boho look and others don’t which is completely fine as I know this trend is not for everyone but I do know it’s definitely right up my alley. What’s your view on this trend? Do you love it or hate it?

    Hey you’re just like all the other gypsy kids out there! Oh wait …. real bohemians & gypsies can’t afford $400 dresses, lol. This is what all the trendy rich kids wear who have too much money and not an OUNCE of gypsy in them. Pick that perfect outfit for the next Beyoncé festival and maybe you can Instagram your trendy boho get-up while you sit in the VIP lounge sipping $65 bottles of water, watching Beyoncé, and feeling oh so edgy! 😀 Seriously guys, come on. Real bohemia, true vintage, and authentic 70’s style awaits at your nearest thrift store for a tenth of the price! Don’t be scammed by a trendy advertising ploy, and get eco-friendly by recycling wonderful one-of-a-kind stuff while you’re at it! Unless of course you’re obsessed with trends and labels…. sigh.

    Thanks Kate! Love the dress but the slits are higher than I would have liked. I may sew them together a bit so I’m not showing off my knickers!

  • #ad - Summer is creeping up on us and there is nothing worse than feeling uncomfortable on your weekend getaway. You are already working on your beach body so make sure to also practice #selfcare on your bum and for those pesky hemorrhoids. Exercise, eat well (plenty of fiber) and use Preparation H to relieve discomfort like burning and itching. And remember to have fun in the sun!

  • #ad - On Instagram everyone only shows life's pretty moments so Chandler and I wanted to start doing something that show that life is not always a Pinterest photo. Take for instance, hemorrhoids. Did you know that 44% of Americans have or have had hemorrhoids? 35% of pregnant women get them! What if you got them but were too embarrassed to ask what to do? You wouldn't be alone - of those sufferers, 16 million people don't use a medicated product! That's just insane. For the record, we recommend Preparation H, both the Ointment and Medicated Wipes are amazing and you will feel so much better! That wasn't so bad was it? Life is full of #realmoments, why not share them?
