spring has sprung and my allergies are feelin’ it. i’ve been sick all week so i’m keeping this post short and sweet, which suits the laid-back tomboy ease of the look. i snagged this amazing suede shift dress from free people in nashville after admiring it online for a while. they just so happened to have it when i ventured into the store, and i knew once i tried it on that i needed it in my life. i love suede and denim together, so i thought i would dress it down a bit with sneakers and my tried-and-true distressed denim shirt. this dress has a very low neckline, so it can definitely look a lot more feminine and sexy if you want to dress it up — and i plan to. but this week i wanted to show how you can bring some tomboy style to one of your favorite frocks to tone it down and make it that much more versatile!
my squash blossom is vintage, but you can find imitations nowadays for a lot less. since the pieces do have cultural significance to native american indians, i encourage you to select pieces that are made by native american artisans and to read more about the symbolism and history of the squash blossom necklace. check out this article that gives you a brief overview of this coveted piece of jewelry!
