Weekly Whistle: Hippie at Heart

IMG_3728
Ever since I can remember, I have been head-over-heels for the hippie era of fashion. The wardrobe pieces, the accessories, the hair, and the makeup are all so effortless and elegant in this oddly-romantic, slightly-rebelling-against-tradition way. Oh, y’all–I’m telling you the flow and the funk is so empowering + I am a sucker for pieces with killer sleeves *wink* 

So, for this week’s Weekly Whistle, I am throwing it back to the sixties and seventies with a little bell-sleeve and bell-bottom action. I absolutely adore this outfit because not only is it practical for my new #CampusLife *wink*, but it is also trendy and classic. When combined with the lariat necklace (worn as a headband) from Beauty In Stone, I feel like I just hopped in a fashionable time machine. 

Now, without further ado, let’s take a look at this week’s Weekly Whistle + outfit details

Three Ways To Wear Thursday: Vintage, Statement Kimono

IMG_9368

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog! 

Yesterday, I introduced y’all to my lovely, vintage kimono, and today, I am going to show y’all TWO MORE WAYS TO WEAR IT! Ah! Perfection. 

When I first fell in love with this frock, I asked myself how I could wear it more than one way–I try not to invest in too many solo statement pieces because I like to get a lot of wear out of my clothes…especially the really cool items like this bright-red kimono *wink* So, for this week’s TWTWT, I decided to challenge myself with three ways to wear my snazzy, old-new Kimono from EBV! Y’all take a look at all the fabulousness below *wink*

Way One:
