Although I just discovered Molly Burch's music, I am already a fan. Judging from her soothing voice, her amazing songs, and, of course, her laid-back, vintage-inspired style, I'm surprised she isn't more well-known!  

My favorite music video of Molly's is for her song "Please Be Mine," from her full-length debut album of the same name. I love the haunting beauty of her vocals, as well as the video's pared-down, yet somehow still ethereal, aesthetic.

If you haven't already, watch the video below, then keep scrolling to see three "Please Be Mine"-inspired looks. They're total spring inspiration.

Outfit #1

Fashion Inspired by Music Videos: "Please Be Mine," by Molly Burch--Outfit #1 featuring long spaghetti-strap cream-colored dress with pink flowers, Tarte Tarteist PRO Glow Liquid Highlighter in "Exposed," pale pink rose flower crown, ivory lace clutch, cognac brown ankle boots with heel

Products: Dress - LuLu's, Highlighter - Sephora, Flower Crown - Forever 21, Clutch - Accessorize, Ankle Boots - Old Navy

Molly's first outfit in "Please Be Mine" is a vintage-looking floral maxi dress paired with simple brown boots. For a similar look, try this lovely dress from LuLu's; it has a decidedly vintage feel to match the video. Brown (faux) leather boots add a bohemian, '60s-esque vibe.

Although Molly doesn't wear any accessories, I added a pink rose flower crown, inspired by the roses seen throughout the video. I also included an ivory clutch with a floral lace design that reminds me of the baby's breath flowers Molly carries. Lastly, to get Molly's subtle glow, mix a bit of liquid highlighter with your foundation.

And there you have it -- an effortlessly bohemian, feminine look for Spring.

Outfit #2

Fashion Inspired by Music Videos: "Please Be Mine," by Molly Burch--Outfit #2 featuring white long-sleeved turtleneck t-shirt, beige hooded anorak, brown chelsea boots with wooden heel, kick-flare high-rise cropped jeans with raw hem, gold heart-and-arrow earrings with white crystals, gold enamel rose pin, dark gray floral-print backpack

Products: T-Shirt - Amazon, Jacket - Aéropostale, Ankle Boots - Gap, Jeans - Urban Outfitters, Earrings - Chloe + Isabel, Pin - Macy's, Backpack - Zappos

This look, inspired by the outfit Molly wears to roam the streets in the video, is a perfect transitional look for class. Also, its trendy '90s feel is so Spring 2017. 

Start off with a white turtleneck: Although Molly wears a sweater in the video, I'm hoping we won't need heavy layers much longer, so I substituted a t-shirt. (Style tip: For the slouchy, relaxed vibe of Molly's sweater, go up a size or two.) Next, add trendy cropped kick-flare jeans, perfect for late Spring temperatures. I love pairing cropped jeans with ankle boots, as Molly does, so rock high heeled Chelsea boots for her look.

To ward off any early Spring chills, layer on a minimal beige anorak, similar to Molly's; this one, from Aéropostale, is not only on sale, but also has a flattering drawstring waist so you can customize your look.

Now for the finishing touches: A floral backpack is cute and practical, while a sweet rose pin and dainty arrow-and-heart earrings add femininity to the look, all while referencing the song's/video's romantic theme. 

Outfit #3

Fashion Inspired by Music Videos: "Please Be Mine," by Molly Burch--Outfit #2 featuring sleeveless black-and-white gingham dress, rose gold rose earrings, Chloé Roses de Chloé Eau de Toilette Spray, Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick in Crimson, black cross-body bag, black lace-up laser-cut cork-wedge sandals

Products: Dress - ASOS, Earrings - Notonthehighstreet, Perfume - Bloomingdale's, Lipstick - Bloomingdale's, Bag - Humble Chic, Wedge Sandals - Target

Gingham is one of my favorite Spring trends, so when I saw Molly wearing a vintage-looking gingham dress in this video, I knew I had to create a similar look.

Start by putting on a breezy version of Molly's dress -- I love the looser fit and versatility of this one from ASOS. Although we don't see Molly's shoes, these budget-friendly wedges go great with the dress and are sweet, fun, and girly.

Now for the extras. To get Molly's red-stained lips, apply matte red lipstick from the tube, then blot it with a tissue. Next, add rose stud earrings, which, once again, pay homage to the roses seen in the video. Finally, grab a classic cross-body bag and spritz on some rose-scented perfume. 

There you have it: A cute, romantic look that can be worn to class or even a Spring date.

Outfit #4

Fashion Inspired by Music Videos: "Please Be Mine," by Molly Burch--Outfit #4 featuring sterling silver rose ring, pink embroidered floral scarf with tassels, white collarless blouse with pockets, black crew socks, black western-inspired ankle boots, black mom jeans

Products: Ring - Accessorize, Scarf - Humble Chic, Blouse - Nordstrom Rack, Socks - Gap, Ankle Boots - Target, Jeans - Urban Outfitters

In the pivotal scene of the video -- in which Molly throws her bouquet (presumably representing her lost love) into the water -- Molly wears a collarless blouse, faded high-waisted black jeans, black socks, and ankle boots.

To mimic this look, begin by tucking a loose-fitting blouse into baggy mom jeans. Next, add black crew socks and black ankle boots (I love these western-inspired ones!), ensuring that the top part of the socks is visible.

This look is minimal and sweet sans-accessories, however, if you're big on extras like I am, add an embroidered floral scarf and a lovely silver rose ring.

Regardless of whether you go for a minimal, '90s-inspired look or a sweet, romantic one, Molly Burch's video for "Please Be Mine" is sure to be a source of inspiration this Spring!
