Happy 4th of July to all of my readers in the US! Hope you're all scrolling through Instagram by the pool instead of at the office today. Happy Monday to all of my international babes, too - only 4 more days 'til the weekend. I'm pretty much already doing the same countdown. And to my Canadian loves, Happy Belated Canada Day! This post is in honor of you, because I have found yet another thing from Montreal that I am just crazy in love with...much like poutine and the W.
So, I'm obsessed with 90s fashion (you: "Um, duh") and when I discovered Ziggit, I automatically knew I would use these fun little pins to fashion the choker I've been wearing all over Instagram as of late. I got six pieces so I could spell out "BOHO" and because I wanted to add some color to my DIY design with Zicons (ziggit emoticons). I went with their lotus and diamond designs, because what better signifies a Boho Socialite? The clip-on pins are so easier to use, even for someone with fumbling fingers like me. I'm still rocking the choker today, but I might try the pins on my bikini top since I'm headed poolside this afternoon. Or on a headband because my hair has also decided to revert back to it's 90s style ie huge and fully of waves and curls. Ziggit has a lot to play with, which I really appreciate. Down to designing your own pieces. I can't stand looking like anyone else, and Ziggit helps me hold on to my style identity with pieces that I feel like were made just for me and that I can wear however I want. There's no rules, just limitless self-expression. Spell it out however works for you!
I built this look around my Ziggit choker for my recent staycation in Malibu. Isn't Malibu just the best? I've had these fantastic authentic vintage Gamble sunnies from Hindsight Vintage (available at ASOS) that I've been waiting to use, and thought the round frames + the diy choker would compliment each other so perfectly. Then this Tularosa dress just called to me as soon as I spotted it, and I always wear my gold gladiators when I'm at the beach...helps me feel like I'm actually on vacation in Santorini or Crete and that vacation is actually a 3 month long residency where I drink ouzo and finally finish my book. A girl can dream. I love the white and blue in this dress (of course) and the lace crochet hem is such a nice finishing touch (literally). I'm really looking forward to wearing more Tularose from now on - the dress was SO well-made. I live for a fully lined outfit. Boho-inspired clothing can be a little flimsy, but this dress has a real quality to it - I'm definitely going to be rocking it all summer long.
