STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Indie Darling

Searching for that effortless summer look that has both comfort and cool? Look no further than this Fashionista’s easy, breezy outfit; it’s just the thing for these dog days.  I first spotted this Fashionista, I was immediately impressed with how she took multiple pieces to create one cohesive ensemble; it’s not too busy or too cluttered. Let’s break down her adorable outfit from the top to bottom.

The shoes: arguably the most important part of any look. Bad shoes can really ruin a great outfit.This Fashionista totally rocked the footwear by showing off her gams with nude wedges. The neutral color plus the four inches of height make her legs appear to go on for days and days. As for the skirt, the high-waisted, midi-length is very in right now, as it is a flattering cut for most figures. The light chambray is a great summer fabric that will keep you cool even in scorching heat. Her skinny, nude belt both complements her waist as well as matches her footwear perfectly.

As for the top, this Fashionista chose to show some skin with a thick bandeau.  Although a sliver of skin peaks out, it avoids being too trashy or exposing. This can easily be swapped out for a bright cami (my favorites are teal, neon pink and coral); comfort is key!

Her accessories might be my favorite touches, since her strawberry statement necklace and floppy sunhat are two additions that can act as both statement pieces and everyday staples. For a fun and simple DIY project, grab a pack of faux peacock feathers and hot glue gun it to a straw sunhat like this Fashionista did.  It’s both a homemade craft as well as a retro chic accessory that you won’t need to spend your whole paycheck on at a department store.

Recreate this darling look with your own personal flair the next girl’s day out, Sunday brunch or just while enjoying a sunny July afternoon.
