A few months ago I discovered Shopjoyworks an online boutique from my home state. I love stumbling across boutiques from Washington and it is especially exciting when I find a store that closely matches my personal style. I consider my style girly-girl meets boho. I lean towards pieces that can be dressed up or dressed down and shades that compliment my fair skin and blonde hair.
Shopjoyworks is both feminine and bohemian. I love that the dresses at Shopjoyworks feel effortless and comfortable. I picked this specific dress because of the beautiful blue pattern and trendy bell sleeves. I have adored the sixties and seventies inspiration in fashion the past few seasons, bell sleeves on an inca inspired print feels so fresh! I chose to pair the dress with a statement necklace and simple flats but really the options are endless, on a colder day I would totally throw on a pair of over the knee boots and a longer necklace.
I wanted to draw out the touch of pink in the textile with a dainty pair of Repetto ballet flats I picked up in Paris. I obsessed forever about what my “splurge item” to take home would be. I was certain I wanted a leather bucket bag but just couldn’t seem to find one that worked. When I laid eyes upon these gold and ballerina pink delicate flats my heart skipped a beat. The flats were part of the wedding collection but I didn’t care. Believe it or not I don’t love glitter as much as I used to. A lot of the chunkier sparkles I once loved feel a bit too heavy for me now-that being said, the right amount of glimmer can be so feminine and chic. I couldn’t dream up a better way to work sparkles than with these Repettos!
Since the Others Follow Inca dress is short on taller frames it can double as a beach cover up and tunic. I like the shorter look for running errands around town on a warm spring day but would add leggings for a cute boho look too! The open back makes the look breezy enough for a moderately warm spring day even with the longer sleeves. With a pair of booties I would transition this dress from daytime casual to date night in an instant!
Definitely click over and check out Shopjoyworks, the online boutique is so cute and really affordable (plus the owner is totally sweet). If you happen to order this powder blue trench and decide to order and extra and send it my way…I totally won’t hate it #Twinning.
