It’s that time of year again. When the bands come out and the clothes (sometimes, more than planned) come off. Keep it cool and classy this festival season by donning my key pick: the double-duty underthing known as the bikini. If you can’t beat the heat and need to peel off a layer–who cares, because you’ll be looking hot in this little number by Full Tilt. Plus, the halter neck allows for extra comfort, and boob containment, should you decide to go crowd surfing. When you tire of everyone staring at your ta-ta’s (you know they are), I second Miss Jean’s suggestion of going with a cute crop top and some worn-in, rolled up, cut-offs. I love the punky vibe of Coco de Coeur’s Teenage Wasteland tee paired with Forever 21‘s rolled, distressed denim shorts. To keep your tootsies from getting trampled, opt for this twist on the classic slip-on, from Keds, with a soft jute sole. Lastly, if you must carry a bag (I usually prefer not to, in order to maximize free groovin’ potential) opt for something small and light than can go cross-body–like this macrame bag by Lucky Brand. Now, get on with your bad boho self, girl! ♥

  1. Love all of your cool, summer “picks”, Natalie! The Caudalie is so refreshing, the bikini top is darling, the Rushe sunglasses have a “retro” flair, and the Lucky brand bag is really “boho” chic! (Love the bracelet, too!) Someone I know would look darling in all of them! Thanks for all the neat, “styling”,
    ideas! 🙂
