Closet Chic: Casually Chic Saturday

Happy Monday my beautiful people!

I wanted to share my look from Saturday.  Saturday was a pretty chill, but fun day for me.  My sister and I got a chance to get massages, eat out, and shop a little.  I initially wanted to wear some jeans and a t-shirt but I don’t like wearing jeans too much in the summer because it hot.

I wore a tank, red skirt, and a scarf kimono.  The kimono is fairly new.  I got it from Rainbow for $4.99.  I wanted to look chic without having to put too much thought into my look that day.  I wore my faux Prada sunglasses, a red and gold necklace, and a spiral bracelet.  I wore some African inspired sandals that I adore that can easily be dressed up or down. I felt really chic.

By the way, I crocheted my hair again and I shaped it into a bob again.

Thanks for reading!   Feel free to let me know what you think:-)

Have a awesomely productive week!

Caftan Turned Kimono Cardigan

Hi everyone!

It’s been over due for a DIY sewing project and I wanted to share a recent project I have  done.  I’ve been slightly obsessed with kimono cardigans.  So one day, it came to me to that I could make a kimono using a caftan.   I found this really cute caftan from Ross ($8.99).

image

It was fairly simple to make.   I laid the caftan flat on a table and cut a straight line down the middle.

I then folded and pinned both sides of the fabric where I cut and sewed down the hem of each side.

image

Here’s the final result.

My tank top ($1.90) and jeans ($9.80) are from Forever 21+. My shoes are from Rue 21 ($6.00).

This kimono has been multifunctional. I have used it as a cover up for swimming and to wear around the house as an alternative to my fleece house coat. I hope you enjoyed reading this post. Be on the look out for more of my DIY projects.

Hello Beautiful People!

I wanted to share my outfit from yesterday.   In my last Closest Chic post, I wore this same kimono cardigan.  I wanted go for something that didn’t require a lot of work and is super chic. I chose black leggings and a black tank top. I wore my turban to add a little flair. I also wore black sunglasses and a black and gold purse. It was very easy, effortless outfit to create.

Closet Chic: Bohemian Flair

Hello lovelies!

wpid-1431040780659.jpgI wanted to post this look on yesterday, and didn’t get a chance to finish the post.  I love the warm weather months because I can channel my bohemian style.  I like wearing flowing garments and earth tones.  I have always been into different prints.  I would have to say floral prints are starting be my favorite prints. I found this sheer floral print kimono cardigan (Burkes Outlet, $12.99) last weekend and I’ve worn it a few times already.  I chose a white t-shirt and dark turquoise skinny jeans to go with this look.  It’s very simple.  I wore simple white crystal studs and a gold flower ring (both of the jewelry pieces are from Old Navy for $1.99 each).  I also wore a chained statement necklace.
