OOTD: Independent Soul

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.” – Charlotte Brontë

Hello Spiiirits! I hope you had a marvelous 4th of July/4th of July Weekend. Though I’m not big on the America-centric holiday, I know I did. Nothing like a little celebration with friends &/or family to kick off the month right? Speaking of kicking off the month can you believe we have now entered the 7th month of 2014???  Summer is in full swing and we are more than halfway through the year! Crazy. But I couldn’t be more thankful.

At any rate, I wanted to share my 4th of July outfit with you lovely spiiirits!  Triiin & I were invited by our lovely friends Ash & Kwith to enjoy some backyard chillin’ & grillin’. We had the most delicious grilled veggies and grilled seafood (salmon, lobster, & shrimp to boot!). And the night was topped with a wicked fireworks show from an amazing view. Great day 🙂

Crotchet Top: Thrifted, Burgundy Bandeau: Shasa, Skirt: F21, Scarf (for turban): Walmart, Pinstripe Sneakers: Target, Choker: Bombay Fashions, Pyramid Studs: F21, Crossbody Bag: A street vendor we call “Rasta Man” :), Mixed Metal Bracelet: Glitter, Rings (Snake Ring, Coral “crystal ball” Ring, & Earth Tone Oil Paint Ring): Gift + Beauty Supply, Cat-Eye Sunglasses: Santee Alley

The daytime was HOTTTTTTTTT, so I aimed to wear an outfit that could handle the heat, while being stylish & comfortable. No matter how hot in the day, LA tends to cool off substantially at night, so I brought along a yellow cardigan to keep me warm when it got cool out.

As you can see by some of the pictures, Triiin’s outfit was fab & killin’ it, also! If you want details to Triiin’s outfit, just let me know in the comments below! Also…we sell cute custom crops like the one she is wearing at FreeSpiiirit. Email for inquiries.

I’m Back! + June Wishlist

Hello fellow fashionerrds, oh how I’ve missed ya!! I’ve been dealing with a lot, with graduation coming in August (along with a move to California immediately after), constant preparation for that, then there is summer school, and job transitions, and trying to run FS and everything in between. I’ve just been swamped! But I didn’t forget about you guys and I’m glad to be back to y’all and back to blogging. *sigh* There’s no place like home.

Here’s a couple items I’ve been lusting over this month….

WristCandy

Wrist Candy

Watches, bracelets and wrist candy of all sorts has really been calling out to me lately. I’ve always liked bracelets but haven’t really worn any in awhile. Recently they’ve just been calling out to me! I’m really loving chain bracelets and interesting stackable ones. Slave bracelets are also to die for, I’m looking to add some really interesting ones to my arsenal, REAL soon.

aliceandolivalacemaxi

Maxi Skirts

I’ve been loving these for a long time for sure. So sassy and easily chic, and usually quite comfortable. They have been a go-to in my arsenal thus far this summer and I need more, more, more! Oh & if someone wants to purchase the crotcheted Alice & Olivia number pictured above for me as an early graduation present, I wouldn’t be at all opposed.

 Fingers-Tattoo

Finger Tatts

I have been infatuated with these lately. I have two finger tatts that I want. Not nearly as extensive as the ones pictured above, though they are beautiful. I just want two little symbols, but I can’t wait to get ’em. Finger tatts are cool as shit! Add tattoos to the list of things I have to save for this summer. Oh well, what can I say, I love ink!

loosepants

Loose Pants

Sheer, printed, pleated, lightly more fitted, or totally wide and baggy, I love them all! These pants are all the rage and not to mention just as super comfortable and easily chic as maxi skirts..if not, dare I say it, even more so. I’ve been finding a lot of nice ones at thrift stores, but you can never have too many! I want a hefty collection of these before I move to Cali.

playsuits

Playsuits

Rompers, pantsuits, jumpsuits, and the like.I have a couple nice rompers, but not any jumpsuits yet (a fact that needs to change, SOON).  These things are to die for! Like so chic, need I say more?
