This outfit is classic me- cream, layered and sparkly!
The key to my style is layering a neutral color with different textures. You can wear a bunch of similar colored pieces- but make the outfit completely interesting with different fabrics and designs. Wearing all cream on paper sounds boring- but it's the complete opposite when layered correctly!
This outfit was really inexpensive compared to the price it looks like. You don't need to spend a lot to create a true bohemian look- just play around with different textures in your closet in varying neutral shades. A LOT more outfits become possible when you look at your closet this way! These pieces don't technically 'match'- they coordinate. Buying pieces that can coordinate together is a LOT easier than buying things that 'match'- resulting in more wearable looks and being able to wear the same piece many different ways, as opposed to buying 'outfits'.
That's also the reason why sequins look so great with these looks- it sounds like an odd combination, but it's just another neutral with a different texture! (Grey, cream and beige!)
I'm doing a video soon on this look/how to transform a dress with a scarf- the dress I'm wearing is simple and really past season (the floral chested applique is so over done, but the floral detailing peaking out from a scarf is a really great addition!) Wearing a scarf like this transforms the front of any dress, and is an unexpected way to wear one in the summer. It's also a good way to conceal a lower cut, more revealing top! (Or in my case, add layers to my chest to make it look fuller than it really is) I used the tie from the dress, just wrapped it around the front instead to secure the scarf in place- but if your dress doesn't have a tie already, use another neutral colored belt!
The way I do sequins during the daytime is by keeping everything else simple- my braid is loose and relaxed, and the entire outfit looks comfortable- the sequins just make it a little bit more glamorous :)
If I had to describe my style in two words, it would be Everyday Fabulous.
