Are you ready for warm weather, flowers and bumblebees yet? Once we get on the flip side of the holidays, Spring becomes my immediate goal. And nothing is Spring-ier than bright color! Brie demonstrated this is a summer-festival-ready outfit from the barrage of looks she graced us with earlier this month on Insta. She paired her flowy boho maxi with a scrunched white tank for a free-wheeling, joyous combo. What really makes this styling come alive is her intense tangerine lip shade - it carries the color upward and makes her look radiant! If you've got a flaming orange boho maxi in your closet, I'm all for you digging it out right now ;), but any strong color will do - lime, bright lemon, royal blue, cerise. Stripes are good, prints are fab, pleated is trendy. If you're headed to somewhere that tanks are frowned upon, swap in a classic white boyfriend tee instead, half-tucked or knotted. (PS ditching the tank also opens up the possibility of using a bright boho dress, instead of a skirt.) Also feel free to rock this look even if the sun hasn't quite found it's way to your home base. Go with a drape-y ivory sweater on top (layer a tank, a tee or an Icebreaker merino base piece underneath depending on what the temps warrant). Keep the slouchy wanderer vibe by belting it into a blouson shape. Choose leather or suede in a warm shade: caramel, tan, camel, chocolate. Punched designs, studs or Old-West details get bonus points ;). Finish the look with coordinating booties or boots. Then, borrow yourself a Volkswagen bus (painted-on flowers optional) and let those festival feels fly...even if you're only heading to SchoolFest! or 9to5Fest! or ScroungedUpPartTimeEarningsFest! :)....hmm.... don't quite have the same thrill, do they? Well, we can dream, dagnabit. And dream, we shall. Happy dreaming!
