Light and Lacy

I love the clothes from Free People. They seem like the type of clothes I’d design if I designed clothes.

There’s a lot of lace and textures and light, flowing fabrics.  I like the femininity of it.

Anyway, I was browsing through some of their collection, and I wanted to highlight a few of my favorites here.  I see it as kind of a mental collection of the look I’m after.  It’s one of my missions, of late, to slowly replace the I’m-too-pregnant-too-care-what-I-look-like pieces still in my wardrobe with things that are a bit more bohemian.  A bit more relaxed, yet girly and beachy.  A bit more me.

I posted a few of my faves.  Let me know what you think – I’d love to hear some opinions!  :)

Leaf Chain Fringe Earrings {Product Review}

Leaf Chain Fringe Earrings in Antique Gold

I just received these Leaf Chain Fringe Earrings and totally had to share them!

I don’t normally buy long, dangly earrings, but these intrigued me.  Especially the color.  I mean, they’re available in shiny gold and in silver, but when I saw the antique gold I was simply enchanted.

I have other jewelry in a similar color and I love how it goes with so, so many different outfits; how it can be dressed up or dressed down.  Kind of funky, kind of bohemian, kind of feminine.

Anyway, I love how they hang, playfully peaking out of my hair when it’s down and gracefully drawing the eye when it’s up, brushing against my shoulders.

They do make a slight jingle when I move quickly, but it doesn’t bother me.  It’s not annoying.  I actually find it kind of fun, but it may bother some people.

I think they’re comfortable, and, even though I can feel the weight of them enough to know they’re there, I don’t consider them heavy.

Also, for some reason the image above doesn’t show the hook, but it’s worth mentioning that they’re fish hook earrings.

And, finally, yes:  they are called “leaf chain fringe” earrings but they most definitely look like feathers.

Albeit the discrepancy in the description, they’re fun and beautiful, and I’m happy I decided to get them.  Totally my style.
