Mona style has got boho glow, and she absolutely rocks it! She's got that sweet hint of 70's vibe going on, but she isn't a mainstream fake hipster look. She never seems like she is trying too hard but rather always looks comfortable in her personal style, so I was thrilled to feature her on this week's Fashion Friday!
When it comes to the bohemian look, layers are essential. Soft materials that loosely drape over printed textures underneath add dimension and flair.
Layering isn't only something that can be done with clothing. Layered jewelry of various shapes, sizes, and styles lend an eclectic edge to the overall vibe. Think chunky necklaces and unique-looking rings.
Earthy tones work really well with Mona's skin tone and really help to achieve a relaxed look in which she appear totally comfortable but completely stylish.
As with any style, girls just gotta have dresses! And Mona's eyelet dress with tassels was a stunning finish to her styled shoot. Love, love, love!
I met Elise last semester in my small group, and I'm so glad that I did! She has this genuine spirit that is such a joy to be around! I was so glad for the opportunity to photograph her classic style and be able to share it with you on the blog!
Classic staples, like Elise's solid teal dress, are must-haves for any spring wardrobe. When you focus on building your look around timeless pieces like solids and classic fits and prints, you're always going to be in style. No matter what the current trends are or become, classic is always a safe, go-to look.
More and more, it's becoming the norm to get simpler and simpler with everything in our modern world, and it's no different when it comes to fashion. That's why statement necklaces or simple ones like Elise's golden bicycle pendant really completes a look that is simple yet can have a dimension of excitement!
When it comes to shoes, it's important to be comfortable, and since solid flats are always in style, it's easy to master comfort when you are going classic. But remember, classic isn't synonymous with matchy-matchy. Not everything in your outfit has to "go together." As long as the parts of the outfit contribute to the whole, (like Elise's choice of tan flats with her teal dress) you're in good shape.
Another thing that's really awesome about the classic look is that it is very versatile. Elise is a little more dressed up for maybe a downtown lunch date, but this outfit could easily be dressed down with a pair of sandals and less bling or dressed up even more with a blazer and hair tied back for a flawless look appropriate for the workplace.
I love travel and adventure. I love seeing things from new perspectives. I love to find good food in exciting places. And I love making moments last for as long as possible.
