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!

  • #ManCrushMonday - When I refer to my BEST friend it seems so insufficient, since he is obviously so very much more than that. @ChandlerTindall has loved me through heinous fashion crimes, terrible haircuts and and even worse, moods that will give you whiplash. He knows every inch of my personality and loves me anyway. He supported me through my shaky business start-up, loves without condition and still even massages my feet and tells me how much he loves me everyday. I don’t know where I’d be without him. So I just wanted to dedicate this post to my sexy beast of a husband  BUT…since I put this on the internet, it’ll last forever!  @liketoknow.it #liketkit #LTKmens Shop Chandler's look here: http://liketk.it/2xWxr or take a screenshot of this pic and check out the LIKEtoKNOW.it app. #MCM

  • Shameless #carselfie | Thanks @vintandyork for these giant shades! Wearing the Glitterati in black (also available in clear). The oversized shape is perfect for hiding from the paparazzi and the roundness softens sharp edges of a square face like mine. Not your style?

As it happens, it was legitimately 87 degrees outside (I swear it felt like 102!) and it’s basically the surgeon general’s recommendation that everyone cool off this way! How did you indulge today, friend? Tell me your absolute favorite flavor!
