Boutique Weekly: Roots & Wings

On a sunny afternoon, my coworker Kylie and I went "boutique scouting". Our first stop was Roots & Wings sitting in the middle of Countryside Village. It was my first time visiting and I must say, there was a lot of good merchandise to choose from. I ran into brands such as Free People, BB Dakota, TOMS footwear, M2F denim, and more. Overall the clothing style was leaning towards boho casual, however many of the clothing pieces could easily be dressed formally. We picked out a few items, enough for three outfits. Here's the aftermath!

Free People Sheer High Neck Top $68 | Free People Paisley Legging $68 | BB Dakota Red Lace Bandeau $30
I'm really loving this boho-chic, textured combo Kylie put together for this outfit. The top was a dainty, sheer fabric with buttons along the train of the back. The high low design gave this piece elegance. Instead of pairing a camisole or tank top underneath, Kylie paired it with a red lace bandeau, adding a hint of color. The navy paisley coated leggings really pulled this look together, adding detail from head to toe.

Free People Floral Eyelet Dress $148 | BB Dakota Black Flap Jacket $95
It was love at first sight with this dress. The floral print and eyelet detailing really make this dress a statement on it's own. The waist is slightly see-through around the cut-out floral design wrapped around the middle. I threw on a leather jacket to take this look from girly to edgy. The jacket's silhouette generously shaped my upper body, letting the dress peak through. Pair this look with some delicate strappy sandals, or some combat boots to grunge it up.

Quick Silver Polka Dot White Tank $34 | M2F Red Skinny Jeans $145 | Free People Denim Jacket $148
For the last look, Kylie took a more casual approach pairing a graphic tank top with a laid-back denim jacket. The jacket is a very admirable piece due to the fabric & denim mix. The polka dots on the top inspired a colorful pant. The red jeans were certainly a good choice!

That's all folks! We hoped that you enjoyed this addition to Boutique Weekly and there will be more posts coming your way! It's been a blessing having Kyle come along with me. We hope that you take inspiration from both of our styling perspectives.
