laid back and looking gorgeous

30 May 2011

I think many of you will agree with me that there is a greater sense of accomplishment that comes with the less effort gorgeous looks and outfits that we create for ourselves. This is one of the reasons I love the festival, vintage, hippyish look that works so well at the moment. With the weather as finicky as it is it's nice to be able to layer up and down with ease. This printed maxi dress for instance.. layer up with a waistcoat, again with a denim jacket or cardi and then when it's warmer just wear the dress alone. A hanging fringe bag, some simple brown sandals and natural beachy waves and you're on to a very laid back but gorgeous winner.


The same goes for shorts, in fact, anything goes with shorts, crop tops, band t-shirts, bandeau tops, boob tubes, your recent diy venture. Layer up with waistcoats, cardis, kimonos then again with leather or denim jackets, a simple scarf or snood. Add some gladiator sandals, navajo jewellery and you have effortless wearable style. Not just for festivals I say! As some body who doesn't go to festivals I take inspiration from the looks displayed at this time of year for garden parties, beach trips, day trips to the zoo, walks along the sea front etc. Why not!

Inspired items that I have my eye on:



What do you think about this easy wearable style? Let me know if you think i'm talking out of my hooha and it's not easy at all ;)

I need a little favour, if you could take a second to take a look at my poll in the sidebar that would be brilliant. I just want to know a little more about the types of posts of mine that you like and if there is anything you'd like to see more of etc. I'm intrigued to see if you'd like more lifestyle posts and my skincare tips etc or if style and outfit posts are the preferred :)
