Flower Crowns, Circle Shades, and Bohemian dresses. The 70’s and 90’s are back in a big way this season and my high school self could not be happier. I’ll be honest; I have always wished I was a flower child. I look back at my mom’s pictures and wish she would have kept some of those amazing dresses from back in the day.
In high school, my best friend and I decided we would listened to Bob Dylan, rock natural waves and no-makeup, and wear hemp necklaces (let’s pretend I didn’t mention that last thing) in attempt to bring out our inner flower child spirit. But no matter how much I tried, I still looked like a girly girl. After all, we were both cheerleaders who had tons of school spirit. To say we were conflicted was an understatement.
Now that the trend is back, I thought I would attempt to bring out my inner flower child again, while sticking with . This floral crop from ASOS is just one of the cute pieces I picked up. This time I decided to stick with gauzy floral dresses, flare jeans and off the shoulder tops.

xox- a dash of details
Growing up in the desert certainly had its perks. Wearing sandals year round and never owning a real winter coat were just a few of the advantages. When the summer months hit my wardrobe always shifted from jeans to light-as-a-feather dresses (you know, the ones that barely touch your body because it is so unbearably hot). Finding those effortless pieces to add to your closet can be a little bit of a struggle, well that is until my friend Catherine decided to open her new shop, Pepper. Pepper is a perfectly curated store in the heart of downtown Scottsdale.
Catherine and I have known each other for over 10 years. I remember the day she showed up at cheer practice. She was one of those girls who just screamed cool and I always envied her boho chic style. Years past, and Catherine went onto college at ASU and then headed to LA for her masters. While she was there she worked for Rachel Pally, and then ventured into the wholesale division at Free People and Alternative Apparel. But back to this year, she decided it was finally time to start her own store. A collection of all of her favorite brands in one place.
You guys know, I do not really give off that boho chic vibe. I always dream of pulling off that look, so when Catherine introduced me to her new shop a few months ago, I was so excited to fill my closet with a few essential pieces. I am kind of obsessed with this Free People dress, which it is perfect for the hot summer months. Their website has a great selection of Free People, Line and Dot, Alternative Apparel basics, and MinkPink. I have been stalking the website for their new arrivals everyday and I am already planning to buy this hat and this romper.
Because the gals over at Pepper are so great, they are offering all A Dash of Details readers 25% off everything in the webstore by using the code: ADASHOFDETAILS. Happy Shopping!
