WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

July 10th, 2015 at 2:10am

During the summer in Milwaukee, it seems like there’s a festival every week. From Bastille Days and Brady Street Festival to Jazz in the Park, Milwaukeeans know how to celebrate summer. Street festivals offer the opportunity to take advantage of the beautiful summer weather and spend the weekend outdoors with friends enjoying shopping, food, music and exploring new neighborhoods.

Once you pick out which festivals you’re going to hit, choosing what to wear is the next step. For a quick and easy outfit, opt for a romper. All you have to do is throw one on, pick out shoes and accessories and you’re good to go. No matter what your look is, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to find a romper that reflects your personal style.

This Fashionista’s look is a mix of feminine, bohemian and casual cool. The focal point of her outfit is a beautiful floral Band of Gypsies romper with ruffle details that’s girlish and a bit bohemian. With three-quarter-length sleeves and a wrapped bodice, her romper is unique from the standard spaghetti-strap piece, and these elements add to its feminine flair.

Other feminine touches include delicate jewelry such as an “A Charmed Impression” silver necklace, simple silver rings and an earthy aqua Bronwen bracelet that accentuates the colors in her romper. This Fashionista also sports a cream Coach cross-body bag. Thanks to its beautiful color and timeless design, the bag adds a chic touch to the outfit. Cross-body bags like this one also serve a practical purpose as they’re the perfect size to hold a wallet, keys and phone and don’t have to be held.

While this Fashionista has feminine, chic style down pat, her look doesn’t stop there. She adds a little grunge into the mix by throwing on a Relativity denim jacket, which also makes her look more casual and street festival ready. Another casual addition this Fashionista makes to her look is metallic Lucky Brand boots. Boots are the perfect footwear for hanging out at a festival—they’re flat and closed-toe, making them comfortable for lots of walking around. Finally, adorable pink and cream ruffled socks soften the edgy boots and reflect the girly roots of this Fashionista’s weekend festival-ready look.

One Simple Change: Going out for brunch? Lose the denim jacket, and swap the boots and socks for a pair of chic lace-up flats.
