Bohemian Days

Bohemian 1 Typically my go-to outfit when I'm on the run is the absolute comfy pair of leggings and an oversized tee route (throw in a beanie or a headband here and there). But you know those times that you see something so amazing that it's so worth dressing up for and you'll find any and every occasion to wear it? Well that's totally the case with today's outfit. Giving you guys the lowdown last week on my latest new obsession brand, Asha Mia, this top-skirt combo (which looks like a dress) had me at first glance. Not typically a print kind of girl, the piercing green and flaming orange instantly made me want to try this on. And so happy that I did, because this is one of my most favorite outfits to date. Perfecting my boho look by topping it off with BuDhaGirl bracelets, a Nissa necklace, and my pretty much routine Rouelle rings, no one would be able to question my bohemian princess ways.

The Pham Effect

You know those people that you'll just come across on the streets and just automatically want to be their friend because they look and dress really cool? Well today's inspiration doesn't just look the part, she plays the part as well. Hanging with Nicole Pham (or as many like to just simply call her "Pham") is like automatically taking your cool and fashionable factors and levels up ten notches. With an ombre that gives mine a run for my money, piercings that everyone wants but are too afraid to get, and subtle but insanely awesome tattoos that you don't know how you didn't come up with yourself, Nicole is always on her fashionista A-game whether she's trying to be or not. Nicole's style is comfortable but edgy. With an outfit like today's that consists of a simple shirt and shorts, Nicole knows how to pair it up with some showstoppers like this brightly patterned blazer perfect for the spring. Nicole is always in on the latest trends and styles, but yet she strives to be different than the other trend followers, going to different and unique stores to find her purchases so that she doesn't blend in with the crowd. Loving everything from punk to house, music plays a big role in Nicole's life which is easily seen and portrayed into her ensembles, allowing her to perfectly blend into whatever event or place she's in. There's no doubt that Nicole stands out, always giving me and others a lesson or two in the world a fashion and more without even trying. But that's just what I like to call the Pham effect.

Chillin In Cheetah

Prints have never been my thing. Whether a simple pattern or a throwback to some of our favorite zoo animals including zebras and cheetahs, I was convinced that I could not work these patterns into my every day ensembles. I feel like with animal prints, there's a very fine line between them looking tacky and them looking chic with one's ensembles. Yet, whenever I have been seeing others wearing it, I tend to love them more and more. I think though that the result of both the combination of the sheerness of this top along with the low to high nature style (which I always love), those were the key ingredients to me finally deciding to purchase an animal print style of my own. Yet, even though this outfit looks like a natural and something I sport all the time, I never forget to be true to my Lainey ways and pair it up with things like big chunky heels, dramatic jewelry, and a headband.
