BIKINI SEASON 2013: The Boho Babe

boho babe cover

Another day, another post, my sweet readers! This is the second part from our long, long Bikini Season 2013 coverage and so far, I’m loving putting these together for you (I hope you are enjoying them as well). The Boho trend is always around when it comes to beachwear! the paisley, the embroidery, the gypsy floral print, the Broderie Anglaise and the always favorite crochet are Summer regulars. Last S/S was all about the crochet mini shorts, this season, it’s all about the ones with the boho print (thanks, Isabel Marant for that). The multi-strap sandals are also another style that comes straight from the runway, it’s all about gladiators, gladiators, gladiators! And when it comes to bikinis: embroideries, bohemian patterns, knit bottoms and more. The ultimate boho piece? A kimono with a cool pattern. Trust me, the kimono is the ultimate beach cover-up: you get to show skin and your bikini instead of enclosing them inside a dress or a playsuit. Here are some fun garments for you to check out, in case the boho babe is your beachwear style!

SUMMER GETAWAYS 2012: The Free Spirit (evening)

Good Monday, my sweet readers! As I am getting ready for my last vacation destination (Acapulco Bay, I’m coming), I’m giving you the fourth post from our Summer Getaways 2012 series, Evening round. I’m gonna make this quick since I have a plane to catch! I’ve told you before about our lovely Free Spirit, Flora. She’s one who loves to chill, who loves exploring unknown destinations, who loves having a good time by the beach, with some friends and some beer. So, if you are the kind of girl who enjoys bonfire nights, if small bars with a twist are your scene, if you are heading out to an unknown paradise and need the perfect dinner ensemble, here’s what I’m offering you:

  • Kimonos have been on the trend spotlight for a while now. The more prints they have, the better they look. And if you dig that boho vibe, it’s a must inside your closet.
  • For bohemian destinations, white, crisp dresses work to perfection. Choose them in different materials: linen, crochet, silk (possibilities are endless)
  • Multi-strapping is a must for the shoes. Braided heels, wedges or flats, I can guarantee you’ll wear them out.
  • Shoulder mini bags are a girl’s best friend when it comes to going out. Rebecca Minkoff has quality and a good price.
  • Go crazy with some earthy arm candy.

WHAT FLORA IS WEARING

Now I’m of to soak up the sun!

Sweet kisses…

SUMMER GETAWAYS 2012: The Free Spirit (daywear)

Good Wednesday my sweet readers! I just came back from the magical city of San Miguel de Allende, México. It was a fun and relaxing weekend and now I am back to reality before my last Summer escape, the beach. As promised, this is the last post form our SUMMER GETAWAYS 2012 (daywear) round. I’ve already given you the City Blonde, the Hopeless Romantic, the Party Princess and the Jet-set Junkie. Who am I missing? The Free Spirit! So if you are heading out to chill on a deserted beach or to a Mexican town, this is the post for you. It would’ve also been useful for all of you, Lollapalooza junkies, but sadly, that was this weekend. So if you are heading out to a destination were sandals, ponchos and headbands are just the thing to wear, keep on reading baby, keep on reading.

  • Flowy and lightweight blouses are just the thing to pull off that boho vibe you need.
  • Denim cut-offs, printed or washed up, are the bohemian’s best friend.
  • Do leave your natural waves loose and add a headband for an interesting twist.
  • Always wear shoulder bags, messengers or hobos when in a Free Spirit destination (fringes are optional but always a classic).
  • Layer different necklaces together. The different the length, the cooler the ensemble.
  • Ring packs are useful when pulling off a killer finger candy.
  • To change things up a bit, add a fun and sassy touch with bubblegum pink nails.

WHAT FLORA IS WEARING

For all the details on today’s look, go to FASHIOLISTA

There you go! Last from daywear, ready for evening wear? I sure am! The Hopeless Romantic will be armed and ready for dinner on tomorrow’s post!

Sweet kisses…
