One Piece Multiple Possibilities

Hello all I hope you’re having a great week so far. I thought it would be fun to do another “transitional fashion” post but instead of a from day to night look I thought it would be fun to show you all how with the help from some select accessories and styling tips you can change the look of a romper completely.

I decided to go with my two favorite style aesthetics, both of which could not be more polar opposite, but seriously where is it written that you can’t like a little bit of everything when it comes to style?

Look 1. Pinup Inspired

Because of the casual nature of a romper I decided to keep my hair simple, rolled bangs, a little bit of a bouffant working, and the rest of my hair down and curled all set off with a cute little bandana. I of course ignore how casual the romper is when it comes to my makeup though, a classic red lip and a winged liner is just a must have to for me, and to set the look off I paired a wide red belt to define my waist and a pair of heels to make my legs look a little longer and leaner than they actually are.front and backdetails9230923893009242

Bandana: Target

Earrings: Kohls

Bra Top: Onzie

Romper: H&M/Similar 

Belt: Vintage/Similar

Heels: DSW/Similar

 

Look 2. Bohemian inspired.

See what I mean about polar opposites? For a fun bohemian look I went a little more “intricate” with my hair doing a fun twisted crown and some soft romantic curls to set it off, kept the makeup very simple and luminous, piled on the jewelry I’ve never heard of such a thing as too much turquoise, added a brown braided belt, again to define my waist, and kimono to give the look some movement. Then threw on some cowboy boots for a bit of a rustic edge.

Jewelry: The choker my mother made and I believe all the other pieces were bought at pow wows. Honestly pow wows are the greatest places to find gorgeous turquoise jewelry and I like supporting artists as opposed to companies. Do a little research and see if there are any pow wows taking place in your town, and don’t worry if you’re not Native American every pow wow I have ever been to has been open to the public. However if there aren’t any pow wows taking place near you I did find this site (Indian Village Mall) that sells gorgeous Native American wears.

Kimono: Cotton bought it ages ago but I love this Kimono from Forever 21 as an alternative

Romper: H&M /Similar

Belt: Vintage/Similar

Boots: Atwoods supply store/Similar 

Which look was your favorite? Do you have a tendency to have polar fashion favorites or is it just me? Drop me a line I love hearing from you guys.

Hope you all enjoyed this post as much as I did. Happy Wednesday!

Fashion Friday: Onzie’s Fall Line

Its that time of year again folks, Fall! Now while it may not mean cooler temperatures for everyone (its still upper 90’s here in Texas) it does mean companies are releasing their fall lines, and no one does fall better than Onzie. I just adore this company, they’re 100% made in the USA which is difficult to find these days, their designs are so beautiful its impossible to be in a bad mood while wearing them, and the obscenely comfortable fabric choices and cuts are out of this world!

This year Onzie’s fall line is inspired by “Mystic Metal” and this resulted in me wanting one of everything in every print! Honestly I’ve never had a more difficult time narrowing down what I wanted. The metallic finishes and rich pigments really create something special.

Eventually I was able to make a firm decision and I’m thrilled with my two different looks that I get to share with you! They’re both a little different than my usual style and I’m so thrilled I decided to branch out and try something new!

Look 1.059006990621074306720675PicMonkey Collage07100611Sweatshirt: Onzie A sweatshirt cut, onzie’s ultra lightweight fast drying free flow jersey material, and stunning “Chicago” print combine perfectly to create the ideal fall workout top. Whether you live in a cooler climate or you’re still putting up with the heat like me this top is still an excellent choice, the longer sleeves will fight the cold, but the fabric still breathe and is quick drying for all that sweating you’ll be doing during your yoga practice or all the sweating you do just by living somewhere warm ;).

Bra top: Onzie I was a little concerned this particular cut wasn’t going to be very flattering on me, that the back might result in some unsightly back fat rolls or something due to the cage like structure, I’m happy to report not only did that not happen, but the cut is in fact fabulously flattering and ever so feminine, I already want it in more prints. Onzie really understands how to dress everyone’s shape. Their bra tops keep you supported but they’re far more gentle than traditional high impact sports bras. Hooray for not worrying about falling out of your top, and hooray for not wearing something with a comfort level comparable to that of Kevlar.

Capri’s: Onzie I have no idea why it took me so long to finally get a pair of capris from Onzie. I swear capri yoga pants will now forever be in my rotation. They are sooooo comfortable and actually flatter my super short legs. These capris are the perfect option when you want bottoms that are a little cooler but don’t feel like showing quite as much skin by wearing shorts, I have found a new favorite you guys.

Look 2.

Leggings: Onzie How fun are these leggings? The royal navy blue and mesh tuxedo stripe really take something as basic as leggings over the top turn them into one heck of a fashion statement. It never ceases to amaze me how Onzie can take something that I consider “risky” to wear and turn it into something that makes me feel unstoppable. Leggings can quite literally be the most unflattering garment a lady wears in her lifetime, but through quality construction, brilliant color choices, and supportive fabric Onzie beats the odds. I also want to stress that while yes I preach on and on about how supportive Onzie pieces are, they are equally comfortable and breathable. Its like wearing a second skin, your movement isn’t the least bit restricted, the clothes move with you, which is so vital in yoga. I mean does anyone want to be tugging at their clothes while their trying to not fall over in standing bow pose? No.

All in all I couldn’t be more thrilled with my Onzie gear and highly recommend you check them out, this new fall line is one of their best yet! Working out isn’t always fun but that doesn’t mean your clothes shouldn’t be fun either. Happy Friday my loves! Hope you all enjoyed this post as much as I did.

 

 

Fashion Friday Onzie Spring Collection

This week I have quite the treat for you, two looks in one post! I couldn’t contain my excitement, I absolutely had to share the brilliance that is the Onzie spring collection.

For those of you who don’t know, Onzie is my all time favorite yoga apparel brands. They are 100% made in the USA, their clothes always come in the most flattering cuts and colors, and these beautiful clothes just so happen to be the most comfortable clothes you will ever have the fortune to wear. The last thing you want to deal with is constricting/uncomfortable clothes while trying to workout, and clearly the people of Onzie understand this. Their clothes move and breathe with you, its like a second skin…a super beautiful second skin. If you have been searching for great yoga gear your journey has ended, once you have experienced Onzie nothing else will compare. Start your addiction here 😉 http://www.onzie.com/

Criss Cross Bra top: Onzie I love this top, it is the perfect low impact sports bra, it keeps you decent, but is doesn’t squish you into oblivion like so many sports bras can. Plus its beautiful! I’d like one in each print please 😉

Black open back top: I also got this from Onzie but it’s from their fall collection so its no longer available. However I happen to think this top works beautifully for spring. I love the sexy open back details.

Pure Vida Pant: Onzie Oh my goodness! Are these not the most beautiful pants you have ever seen? They are bohemian perfection, you can either wear them untied for an extra flowy romantic look, or tie them at the akles for a fun harem like appearance. These pants are so beautiful I will be wearing them outside of my yoga practice too!

Flower Clip: Claires

Bustier Top: Onzie Oh yes floral, polka dots, and comfort this top has everything I could possibly want out of a sports bra! Its the perfect balance of girly and playful, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with it!

High Waist Shorts: Onzie Because why should I have to choose between being a yogi and being a pinup? I cannot even express how much I love these bottoms. Their construction is perfect, they glorify your shape all the while being flattering to what most people consider their number one problem area. Plus I’ve never been able to turn down a polka dot print 😉

I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you get yourself some Onzie gear as soon as possible. Happy Friday my lovelies!
