Have you ever stumbled upon a piece of clothing while you’re out shopping, and it just speaks to you? Yeah? Well, me too, and this one was screaming my name from the clearance section at The Rack a few weeks ago. In my soul, I like to think that Stevie Nicks, Janis Joplin and I would be best friends and go on boho picnics together, and when I saw this Free People Ojai dress, it was like I finally found what I would be wearing at said picnic.
Too much? What can I say? I have an active imagination, a love for raspy voiced female singers who’s songs were a big part of my life growing up, and an obsession with perfectly flowy dresses.
When I found and fell in love with this Free People dress, I knew it would accommodate my growing baby bump thanks to the empire waist, and I loved that the woven fabric was light and breezy – perfect for the summer heat. I’m a sucker for details, and both the neckline and back of this dress are so unique and delicate that it made my heart flutter a little as I picked it up off the rack.
I hope you’re not tired of this Octavia & Co. Fringe Feather Necklace from my last Le Tote box yet (also featured here), because it’s currently one of my favorite accessories to throw on and add a little color and pizzaz to any outfit. Andplusalso? It was only $10! My B.Stamped Jewelry custom stamped bar necklaces are still a daily occurrence, but I love bright turquoise and the way it pops against the black of the dress.

JORD sent me this watch a few weeks ago and I love how it helps add to the natural, boho vibe I’m so into right now. I’m wearing the beautiful Cora series Koa and Rose Gold 37mm wooden watch, and I love how delicate it is – plus, that rose gold? I mean, come on! The Koa striped wood is so different than anything I own, and warm, rich tones add just the right androgynous touch to help offset the girlyness of the rose coloring and swarovski markers. See the rest of JORD’s women’s shop here if you want to pick up a unique wooden watch for yourself! ((And don’t worry, JORD’s wooden watches come in a variety of men’s styles as well, so the man in your life is sure to find one that suits his needs!))
I also need to give a shoutout to two incredibly talented women who helped me feel beautiful for these photos. Mariah Joy Hairstylist & Makeup Artist is basically my favorite person in the entire world. I showed her a picture of this dress and said I was going for a kind of boho glam look, and then I sat back and let her do her thing. She is a genius when it comes to making me feel gorgeous (which is no easy feat these days), and always blows me away with what she does to my hair and makeup. Her Instagram, @MariahJoyHair, has even more evidence of her talent, and I encourage you to follow along!
