what the !@$# do i wear wednesdays: rainy days

rainydays

i do not know about you guys but this rain is killing me!? when will it stop?! i thought we were done with april showers?!

sure doesn’t make you want to get decked out for the day.

thought i’d do this wednesday’s post about how to dress rain chic. my go-to’s on a dreary day:

1. fashionable tunic

2. ponte pants (for you ladies in the office)

3. chic rain/rubber boots you can wear anywhere

4. a classic trench

5. umbrella small enough to toss into any bag

6. thin socks to keep your feet comfy and dry

7. nylon-esque tote

whattowear

this week’s what the !@$# do i wear wednesdays is all about coachella outfits!

yesterday i gave you accessory options. today let’s talk about the clothes. anything goes at coachella, but think hippy, desert, california!

coachellatopsyou want to be comfortable during the day while the sun is out but be sure to have some layers when the sun goes down. start the day off with a fun bralette or bandeau. you can put a tank over it or a cool denim vest.  you can continue to layer with a cool kimono or crochet top. also take a break from the shirts and throw on a cute mini dress.

bottoms

bring a lot of bottom options, anything goes here. maxi skirts are a MUST. palazzo pants as we all know are my favorite. cut offs are also a must bring piece. crocheted and light weight printed shorts are also good alternatives.

we are almost complete with our outfit options for the coachella weekend!

trends on tuesday: palazzo pants

palazzo

even though it is STILL cold and rainy i have spring fashion on the brain. i am loving palazzo pants. now i know they are not for everyone. but i am on the shorter side so this style pant would elongate anyone’s leg!

they can be daunting at first to style but mix in some fitted items and a wedge and you will be fine. you can also pair them with sandals if you are taller. bring some to the beach to throw on for after beach dinner & drinks.

this is a perfect breezy yet comfortable look to bounce into spring with.

what the !@$# do i wear wednesdays: ultra music festival

ultrastreetstyle

this wednesday we are headed to miami baby. shake our tailfeathers to some non stop edm. for those of you who haven’t been to an electronic festival, it is pretty much anything goes when it comes to style. the music is not the only unique part of these festivals. girls rock tutus, bra tops, boots with fur, things in their hair, neons everywhere.ultramusicfestyle

for miami you’re going to need essentials: a hat, sunglasses, bathingsuit.

suits with fun tops are perfect because you can throw on a tutu//maxi//denim on the bottom.

fun crop tops or bralettes in bright colors are great!

the shorter the shorts the better, acid wash is perfect for miami.

a fun romper to throw over your suit when you’re going to lunch or leaving the festival is great, especially because you can ball it up in your purse.

jellies are making a comeback, perfect place to break em in.

a headband for your hair because it will get tousled.

don’t forget sunscreen. the neutrogena wetskin i have found best for festivals.

are you hitting up the festival scene this spring/summer? snap some style photos and shoot em over to me.

what the #@!$ do i wear wednesdays: SXSW

wish we were all enjoying the gloriousness of the over 5,000 events taking place down in Austin this week at SXSW. but for now this will have to do. i love that festival season is upon us. besides the music, booze, and good company, festivals are like a runway with the eclectic style that the attendees rock.

sxswstreetstyle

lets talk austin street style. there is definitely a bohemian vibe but it is a bit more rustic. long maxis, lace, florals, denim, and boots (it is Texas). honestly the dirtier the boots the better i think. vintage will be heavily present and a super unique pair of shades capped with a menswear inspired hat.

sxswwtftowear

palazzo pants are a must in this floral print. chambray and denim vests with these fringe boots are true to texan style. festival gear wouldn’t be complete without a mid-drift baring bralette, ripped denim, sky high wooden wedges, and fringe/Navajo accessories.

what the !@#$ do i wear wednesdays: vegas bachelorette

bachelorette

this week’s what the !@#$ do i wear wednesday is by reader request, she is going to a bachelorette weekend in good ol’ las vegas! bachelorette weekends mean a lot of wardrobe changes.

vegasdayhere are some outfits for running around the casino, going to lunch, shopping. vegas is known for their amazing pools, so swim gear is a must with a fun cover up for afternoon drinks before going out. a cross body is great for storing sunglasses, and plenty of cash.

nightvegas

i know when i travel i like to bring outfits that one set of shoes, accessories, and a bag will go with. leaves more room in the suitcase. vegas and bachelorette go hand in hand with fun night time attire. one night all black is required and i’m really loving jumpsuits right now, a comfortable way to be be in style for the themed night. gold accessories is a must and nude lip will be great with smokey eyes all weekend.

if you have any what the !@#$ do i wear wednesdays request please send em my way!
