Watercolors

H&M kimono dress, Anthropologie yellow slip, Steven Madden booties, Accessories from Forever 21 and random

The 70's is one of my favorite eras for fashion. The women were so carefree and glamorous. I always felt a little bit like a hippie at heart. So, when I went to H&M to scoop out their opening day of their "Garden Collection" I had to snag this beautiful water colored kimono. However, once again I ended up with a size that's too big for me. So, I added this yellow slip under and it worked well with the colors and I felt more comfortable. I wore this to a fun BBQ with friends over the weekend and I felt a 70s housewife hosting a party.

What is your favorite style era?

I have been seeing this dress around the blogs and I JUST LOVE IT. Looks amazing on you!

My favorite fashion decade is also the 70s. Those were the best silouettes. That's why I am SO obsessed with the Halston Heritage collection.

the way you did your hair is perfect for the dress. I definitely missed out on that dress, but then again, I know I wouldn't look as good as you are in it, so I gave it a pass :D

Jessica said...

I love this! The colors are so springy are pretty. I love that it's a floral but still has a watercolor kind of feel. The fit is so lovely too, a great silhouette for warm weather.

Chloe said...

LOVE the colors, LOVE the cut, LOVE the 70's feel! You're right, the 70's-hippee-peace/love era has so much to offer the fashion-world!!

I was so excited to see you style this...I'm so jealous everyone's been able to wear theirs already. Mine is still stuck in my closet waiting to be worn-I just haven't found the right opportunity yet. But you look unbelievably amazing in this! I love the way you paired it with booties!

I really like this dress! I actually wasn't crazy about it when I saw it in the collection but I really do love it on! It's fun to play..that's what fashion is about right?
I think my favorite fashion era to play with is old 50's hollywood glamor.

I love this dress on you, esp. with the heavy bottomed black booties. I need to get over to H&M this weekend and check out the Garden collection!!!

♥Lola said...

Love love this dress, it's such a gorgeous colour :)

Laura said...

Ooh...that dress is sensational!! I love flowy 70s-ish dresses. I don't have nearly enough myself, but i just recently got some really nice ones for the launch of my Etsy store :)

My favorite style eras...hmm. Well, I've always adored the 1920's, but more practically, I love the 50's, 60's, and 70's. But there's something about pretty much every decade I can find to love!

I loved this dress until I tried it one. It was so staticky in the store that I was afraid it would fly up, stick to my waist and I'd unfortunately flash everyone! That said, it's incredible on you!
