Bronzed Boho Look

Hey Gorgeous Readers!

During the spring and summer I love bright colours and save my black and white looks for the autumn and winter. But to show off a tan I think black and white is perfect. White looks amazing against a tan and with the tan already making your legs appear slimmer, black makes them look supermodel ready. 



Crochet tops are another bohemian summer trend with the kimono so I went with a white cropped halter crochet top from River Island. For the kimono I went with a black fringed one with subtle floral detail on the back from Mango. I tied in both the black and white from the look with these embroidered runner shorts from Urban Outfitters. Then I chose a pair of simple black flats from Tory Burch.

To accessorize I like these Ray Ban's with the gold and white detail on the arms, collar necklace from White House Black Market, and gold rings from Zappos.

Starting on the bronzed part of the look I picked Sun Bum sunscreen to protect the skin and Victorias Secret Bronze to create the healthy glow. To get a fresh and natural bronze look I like Too Faced Snow Bunny from their new Build Your Own Bronzer collection just over my foundation and concealer. For this super simple makeup look I would just finish with my Too Faced Better than Sex mascara.

Stay Fabulous,

How to Wear | Kimonos

Hey Gorgeous Readers!

One of my favourite autumn pieces in my closet is definitely a cardigan. I think they just pull a whole look together and make it a little more structured or polished. On the complete opposite side of that, my summer alter ego is falling for kimonos. They are the bohemian, laid back, and cool cousin to the preppy cardigan. You've probably seen them all over Instagram and Facebook lately because they are hugely trending this summer.

These flowy drapey pieces give off a very independent free spirit vibe rather than the tradition of a Japanese kimono. Like a traditional kimono though, they are loose fitting and come in a variety of colours and prints.

As popular as flower crowns were last summer and still are, kimonos have taken center stage in festival style this year. I styled a more subdued look below to not take any attention away from the kimono I chose. 


I loved the denim blue and flowers on this Free People kimono. It also comes in 6 other prints. To keep the rest of the outfit simple I chose a white crop top from Zara and shorts from Fall For with a little cute floral lace detail on the hem. I fell in love with the Kilim pattern on the back of these suede booties from Calypso St Barth. Since they are pretty expensive however I also found an alternative- these brogues from Oasis. To complete the look I picked this satchel from Warehouse. While still in my neutral colour scheme I liked how the structure of the bag juxtaposed with the loose kimono.


Stay Fabulous,

Strawberry Festival | OOTD

Hey Gorgeous Readers!


Here in Wisconsin we have a ton of street festivals sandwiched between our county fairs, state fair, and world's largest music festival-- Summerfest (yes bigger than Coachella and Bonaroo). This past weekend I went to one of my favourite festivals, Strawberry Fest in Cedarburg. I look forward to this one every year because the historic part of Cedarburg is so pretty, which of course was a great opportunity for #OOTD.


I kept my outfit really simple because it was actually really hot out and festivals are just really hot and crowded in general. So I coincidentally put together a red, white, and blue look for the pre-4th of July weekend. I wore my white shorts with blue Late Night California muscle tank, and red Ralph Lauren flats. 




I also had my Michael Kors bag of course since I am in love with it. :)


And since this is a Wisconsin festival I had to add this.

Stay Fabulous,
xoxo Aimee
