Spring Trend: Earthy

Earthy. What the heck does that mean? From what I could tell from the spread in InStyle it basically is a renaming of the 'ethnic' or 'tribal' trend of the last few years. Lots of pattern in shades of khaki, olive, yellow, green, and natural materials such as wood, cork, raffia, and bone. I happen to love this look because it is perfect for all of my full length sun dresses and colorful hair wraps. I like to call it 'gypsy chic' but 'earthy' is fine too. Whateves. Here is a version of the outfit I am wearing today that embodies this look:

I love this dress It is comfortable and chic all at the same time.

I collect printed long sleeve tops all year long. I like this one because it has all my favorite shades of blue, green and yellow.

I wanted to show you two different versions of the type of shoe I would wear with this dress. The first one is sort of a fantasy shoe- I don't have the time or patience to clonk around in those shoes, but if I DID have the time, I would rock these shoes. The second pair of shoes
are similar to the shoes I am wearing. I like the woven detail and I am sure the flats would be much more comfortable then the platforms.
All that is left is the accessories:

You can find the purse here the bracelets here
the earrings here and the belt here

The problem with these dresses is that the look is totally ruined if you add sleeves.
