Hellos beautiful readers,
Today I got to show you how I styled myself and my lovely boyfriend thanks to Banana Republic. I wanted to use this opportunity to coordinate matching outfits! Started with our gray shoes, and our main color was pink. Pinning your hair away from your face automatically creates that princess feeling. I wanted to create a look that was sweet and romantic.
I purchased all of the items at Banana Republic last week, so it should be still in store. The items that were not on sale have links above.
I would love to see what you wore to the memorial, feel free to tag me on Instagram at khic_etiquette !
With much love,

Coachella / music festival season is right around the corner and I'm here to help with some outfit inspirations! These looks are for the festivals that are scotching hot like Coachella, Burning man, Psychedelic fest ext.
I will be creating outfits later in the year for the Oustidelands festival and first Monterey festival were it can get very cold.
Music festivals tend to last three days, you can style three different styles per day or create three looks within the same style.
One on my favorite looks is the vintage romantic look. Two years ago for Hardly Strictky Bluegrass I wore a white flowy dress with an orchid floral crown. For this look I decided to braid my hair up and to curl the pieces that framed my face and pin my flower headband into the back of the braid. I pinned the flowers to the back so it wouldn't overpower my sunglasses. Another reason I decided to wear my hair up was for the heat, I didn't want to get a sweaty dancing!
Sunglasses are from shopdaddylong, when I first saw the sunglasses I knew they screamed music festival, you don't really need any other accessories. You could just wear a simple white tee and blue denim shorts, the glasses would be a great statement on it's own! I also love the sunglass chain, it gives me extra security that I won't loose them.
My clothing of choice is always a dress, we should all know by now I'm a girly girl! Whenever you wear a short dress you should always wear some biker shorts underneath. You will be dancing potentially laying down on a comfy blanket and if you get really tired you may be getting a piggy back ride which are some of many reasons why you need to have some shorts! In this case I styled some orange shorts.
I'm a heels warrior, meaning I will wear heels/platforms/ wedges for mostly every event that I can. I know not everyone is as stubborn as me so to keep this look cute and comfortable I added some oxfords! This way you can freely run and jump around!
I only styled this dress for a festival outfit in mind and I am selling it on my Poshmark at Imkaii if anyone is interested! It's just a little too short for me! Only worn on this shoot!
