The Look: Apache Groove

Pocahontas gets time transported to the hippy era. Let's take a trip down fairy lane...




Sandals: Payless Shoes (Similar Here)
Earrings: Lovisa 

Sometimes I wish I was in my twenties in the 60s. Peace, love and nature were all the rage and youth culture exploded into the mainstream. Sounds fun right? I can just imagine dancing around with rainbows painted all over my face and flowers in my hair. **Groovy**

The hippy era was also fashions turning point away from the demure and conservative cuts of the past to a rainbow of saucy colours and shapes. 

In this hidden market square surrounded by lush rainforest in Kuranda, I was able to transport myself back to the groovy era. And it was awesome!

Wearing this, as the other half put it, 'sexy Pocahontas dress', I felt totally in place with the sunny boho vibes. Note the statement embroidery details! I feel like this dress is a literal breath of fresh air in a garment and I'm totally in love.

Add some statement, antique gold ethnic-style earrings into the mix and team with a messy bun and voila!

Now... if only I had an actual time machine...

Rachel

  9. Now THAT is my kind of outfit! ;) That style of dress is one of my favorites and I wish I had more. Also really love your sandals.

    Every time I bring up that I want to be a hippy my Mom reminds me that a lot of them didn't take showers or shave. I couldn't do that. However, I still wanna be a hippy sometimes! I love the clothes and flowers in my hair would be so fun!

  37. As much as I love the 60ies vibe I am quite happy living ethos time, especially when it comes to woman rights and being independent. There was little more than dreaming about that back then.
