Kimono Love

As  you all know, the Kimono trend took Summer '14 by storm and I don't see this trend going anywhere anytime soon!

The kimono is so versatile be it if you wear it as a swimsuit cover up, over a pair of barely there shorts or even over your favorite pair of jeans! It can instantly take your look to the next level! 

You can also transition your darker hued kimono's (like the one I'm wearing here) into the Fall season! Layer it up with a pair of jeans and throw on a fur vest if you really want to add a touch of glamour! 
psst ...even a wide brim hat too! I say pile it on lol.

Sometimes Grainy IPhone Pics...

Hi Guys! I apologize for the grainy pics, but I posted these pics on my social media outlets and many wanted details on my look so I'm here to deliver :)

Last weekend I took a much needed mini vacation for my friends Birthday! I wore this casual look out to a lounge to celebrate, and I love the fact that everything was already in my wardrobe!

 I didn't have to go out and purchase anything new and I still felt cute and I was comfortable which is important for me when going out. Nothing worse than having to cut your night short because of uncomfortable shoes and clothes. No bueno!

No Grey Area...

All black with white accessories is just my thing and you guys know how much I love a sporty chic look!

A white shoe is definitely a bold statement, but I feel like white shoes can instantly give your look a sporty/chic vibe; it's unexpected and takes away the seriousness that a black pump would create.

You can never go wrong with all black and when I go with a monochromatic color palette I like to play with different textures. The silhouette of my look is very girly but the textures give it that edge that I like to incorporate into my style and it gives it that PocketsandBows flare! 

Always make trends work for you and your personal style! That way you never have to worry about looking like a carbon copy.

So tell me, how do you make current trends your own?

Think Outside The Dress

Hey guys! I wore this look recently and I was finally able to wear one of my new favorite pieces in my wardrobe which is this Zara inspired Tie Dye Maxi dress. Instead of wearing as a dress, I wore it open as a long kimono over a pair of denim cutoffs for a more laid back look since I was going to a cook out.

I love the earth tone color palette and it went perfect with my cognac sandals! I had a bohemian vibe going on which is a little different for me, but I was feeling it. 

I hope you enjoy this look as well :)

Walking Shorts

Hey guys! It's been a little while since I've posted, I wish I had a good excuse but the truth is I just haven't been as motivated lately. When creativity is your outlet sometimes you have to take a step back to get re-inspired, re-motivated, rejuvenated. I'm sure my fellow bloggers know what I mean :)

I was actually very hesitant about posting these pictures because i felt the quality was not up to my standard and my goal is to become a lot more diverse with my scenery, however I posted a pic on my instagram and many of you wanted to know the details of this look so here it is! Not to mention I love this look because it encompasses my style so perfectly! Chic and Laid back.

So despite the quality I hope you guys enjoyed this look as much as I enjoyed wearing it!

Floral Fix

I loved this floral dress from the first time I saw it which was a few months ago, however it was in the long sleeve version. I missed out on that so when I saw that H&M made a sleeveless version I snatched it up immediately!

The way this dress drapes with it's high sides makes this very flattering and adds a little interest to an otherwise boring skater dress. 

Hope you all had an amazing Memorial Day! Talk to you soon :)
