Gypsy Chic

4 Jul

Ok, I love BoHo! This outfit features a super cute pair of 100% silk shorts from Ostwald Helgason and a studded crop top that can be found on Nelly.com. This ensemble is not for the shy as it does show a bit of skin, but hey it’s summer time so why not! Speaking of summer, the shorts are ultra comfy as they are designed as track shorts with an elastic waistband.  Although silk is not as airy as cotton, these shorts are unlined so they will breathe well. The top is rayon which is a summer fabric that will help keep its wearer cool. Pair this look with a matching statement necklace and bracelet. A tote bag will help to set off the look. Consider the bag shown here by Hermes. Sandals are the perfect summer footwear especially if they are as chic as the Louboutins shown here. This is great vacation attire so if interested, read on to shop the pieces!!!

When I was a young girl, my cousin came to visit from Sweden. She was older than me and I was instantly in awe of her. I loved her accent, her beauty, and the fact that she was so different from everyone I knew at the time. I sat mesmerized as she told me stories of her work with a major record label and her travels around the world. As she told me about a trip to Africa, she removed a necklace from around her neck and gifted it to me. Recalling how she bought it from an actual witch doctor, she told me that it was a charm that was meant to prevent sickness. I wore that necklace everyday after and never took it off even when I showered. It eventually broke (probably because I never took it off) and I was so disheartened. I also immediately caught a cold! HaHa! Whether this was truly a magical necklace or if my mind was playing tricks on me, I will never know.

The statement necklace in this set reminds me of that necklace and my dear cousin Sofia. I decided to pair it with a funky ensemble that is, in my opinion, great for a date night or even a Girls Night Out (or a Girls Night In offered by the hubby). I love this leather jacket which would function as a top for this outfit. The necklace would look great sitting within that neckline. Pair the jacket with a monochrome print skirt and this becomes an outfit so hot that your man (and anyone else’s) will drop dead when you enter the room! Continue accessorizing with a similar statement bracelet, clutch, and sexy pumps. Read on to shop the pieces!!!
