Hi there!

 I know it’s still cold out on the East Coast, but I’m looking ahead to warmer days in this gorgeous Free People polka dot billowy sleeved top! I love the mustard yellows I’m seeing and I think it has a 70s vintage feel with the bodace of the top being fitted and with a sweetheart neckline, so I tucked it into high waisted flares (my Old Navy ones I just can’t get enough of) and wore my new Nine West blue velvet gogo boots underneath (with an updated modern chunky heel we are seeing everywhere). 

I completed the look with Betsey Johnson rose tinted sunnies vintage Chanel tote and Bloomies duffel as I was heading out of town on another trip (more on my Instagram and stories)! 

I know we will see yellow, mustard, and vintage boho vibes everywhere this spring so however you choose to style it the key is to just have fun with it!

Hi there! 

Continuing with the LA theme, while I was out there I styled another recent Free People top (called the “embroidered bell sleeve top” from Nordstrom that I just love! I’m wearing it with a studded ankle boot, Old Navy flares, and a suede moto jacket from Nordstrom by Vigoss. I finished the look with my Balenciaga Mini City crossbody purse. I always love Grand Central Market in downtown LA and it’s food options including an amazing breakfast place called “Eggslut.” I love LA!

There are so many fun boho looks everywhere right now, and even in the cold you can style the tops with layers;). Stay tuned for holiday looks next up!

Hi there! 

I am in sunny Los Angeles working and playing for a few weeks and thought Venice Beach would be the perfect backdrop for this Free People “Magic Mystery tunic!” I love how it has a boho 70s vibe with bell sleeves so naturally I styled it with my Old Navy high waisted jeans and my hair down and a little frizzy! This top is also available at Nordstrom which was where I scored it from! I finished the look with my Aldo studded moto boots and vintage Chanel chain strap tote bag.

Peace and Xos,

In my new Spell & The Gypsy Collective "Sayulita top" and Old Navy high waisted bell bottom jeans styled with my favorite platforms and Kate Spade Gold Coast purse.  

   Hi there! 

The weather in New York has been getting a little bit colder slowly, and this breezy look is perfect! The off the shoulder top is a floral boho number called the Sayulita Top from Spell & The Gypsy Collective (Spell Byronbay), and the high-waisted bell bottom jeans are a recent Old Navy clearance steal for $14! The 70s retro look is back in style and with my love of bohemian style, classic rock, and gypsy wandering it couldn't be more up my alley. I am also wearing my amethyst necklace I got at Sugar Momos in Big Island, Hawaii that I blogged about in the spring. I finished off the look with my favorite oldie but goodie platforms and Kate Spade Gold Coast shimmer purse. 

My hair was recently done in a balayage and we styled it wavy, which really works with the look as well. More in my Instagram @carolinasantosread to find out hair stylist details from my hair modeling shoot.
