This ensemble is the epitome of perfect vacation-wear; it’s breezy, colorful and just radiates a relaxed vacation vibe. Don’t get me wrong, it still maintains a casualness which makes this outfit suitable for class with friends or out shopping. This Fashionista is no stranger to her personal style, confidently incorporating a diverse, hip range of oriental and boho elements interspersed in the colors/prints and styling. I have to say that despite my minimalistic nature, the liveliness of this look is so refreshing with its bright and playfulness amid all the current minimal and neutral trends.
Worn with a pair of trendy casual flats, she dawns a long and colorful frock with a variety of styles that you can’t take your eyes off of. This dress visibly plays a huge role in this look and mirrors inspirations through several outlets. The exquisite oriental construction and silhouette introduce some unexpected shapes which, combined with the length, is a smart blend of unconventional and bohemian. The vintage elements like the ’70s colors and prints make this dress a truly one-of-a-kind piece, which I think is essential in any closet. Sometimes these finds require hours of digging and a lot of faith, and this Fashionista seems to have a knack for uncovering quality vintage garments and modernizing them with her own twist. You could also scour your city for some cool vintage stores, or try her online Etsy boutique Many Moons Vintage where her passions for finding vintage clothing and accessories and “all things beautiful” are unearthed.
Not to be outshined by the above, her colorful straw bag is definitely a statement piece and holds its own next to such a bold dress. It’s the perfect stylish carryall for traveling and vacation, and it adds some great colors to make for a lovely assortment throughout the outfit. Can I go ahead and deem her cool, blunt bangs and bun vital contributors too? This ensemble just wouldn’t be the same without them.
This Fashionista is inspiring on numerous levels, but you can definitely take an average vacation wardrobe to the next level if you follow in her unique footsteps.
One Simple Change: For a look that is more geared towards dinners and campus tours during Parent’s Weekend, swap the big straw bag for a small cross-body satchel in pink and maybe give a cream cardigan a try. These small modifications will make for a simple but elegant transformation into a Parent’s Weekend ready getup!
