ralph lauren is the master of classic, preppy style. but i also like his take on boho. it’s typically understated and refined – peasant skirts, lace tops, feminine details. and it’s fun to add these elements into my classic wardrobe from time-to-time. another retailer that does boho chic well is anthropologie. while i have to drive down to atlanta to visit a brick and mortar store, i’m never disappointed when i do. as my last visit is proof. plus, their visual merchandising is always a treat to see. whether you’re knocking around in their home department or looking for inspiration from their mannequins scattered throughout the store you’ll find ideas and trends everywhere.
one item i fell in love with on my last visit was this gauze top. it’s light and airy (so airy you need a cami) with a drop waist that gives subtle definition. today, i’ve paired it with a ralph lauren peasant skirt in a muted color scheme. a pair of canvas sandals keeps the overall ootd looking subdued but casually chic. gold earrings, bangles and a straw clutch polish this outfit off. after the long weekend, this is just the type of outfit to help ease me back into the week.
