Songbird – Maxi dress and floppy hat

I’ve always been inspired by Stevie Nicks and flowing, hippie frocks. I find it so much more casual to throw on a maxi dress and a cute pair of boots than fussing with skinny jeans and layering tops. This easygoing bohemian look is inspired by Stevie and vintage photographs of women in romantic, flowing maxi dresses.

I’m wearing a long-sleeved maxi dress from H&M (similar here), Jeffrey Campbell booties, a leather satchel from a Mexican market, Michael Kors Pressly watch, and a floppy wool hat from H&M (similar here).

My leather satchel is one of my favourites, and is so well constructed. I thought it added an authentic accent to this look which was mostly from high street shops. I was planning on piling on the jewelry, but it felt contrived, so I kind of left my bag, watch and butterly tattoo (temporary of course), be the main accents.

I love the metal accent on the neckline of this dress. The print is also stunning, and would look great in both winter and summer months. I would love to wear this dress on a tropical beach with leather sandals and a straw bag, but I also think it works well with neutral, wintry accessories as well.

    Stunning pictures! I adore that sixth picture in which you hide the upside of your face under the floppy hat, that has a kind of mysterious vibe, that’s so great! 🙂

      Thanks so much! I think I wore a 6 because the length was longer, so if you need length, go bigger!
