STYLE INSPO: Why not dress like a gypsy?

My personal style has always been of the bohemian persuasion, feathers and beads, over sized jewelry, and an impractical amount of pattern and embellishment. But I went through a bit of a style crisis when I finished school and began the transition into the professional world. I look pretty young to begin with, and I wasn't sure if people would take my long hippie hair and lack of business attire seriously. I learned how to wear heals and stocked up on blazers and blouses and cut off the bracelets that had stacked year after year onto my wrists. And you know what? It just wasn't me. I found myself trying to express myself in a world that just didn't fit.
Enter Free People. For the first time in my life I feel like I've found the perfect fit. I feel so grateful I get to make art everyday in an aesthetic that I love and I get to dress how I please, and all while surrounded by an abundance of inspiring, stylish, and creative women that remind me that style is about creative expression and having fun with it...
These are some shots from some of my favorite style inspirations over at Spell and the Gyspy Collective. Now of course the challenge for me is always how to translate the beach boho look I love so much into Seattle-ready wear...Enjoy!
