Catch More Than A Dream With This Hot Summer Look
By Normandy Piccolo on June 19, 2014
Some garments look cute on a hanger, but lousy on a person. While other garments look lousy on a hanger, but cute on a person. The No Boundaries Juniors Bandeau and Racerback Tank Top turned out to be the latter of the two.
I stopped in Walmart for cleaning supplies when this bright yellow shirt in the clothing area caught my attention. Color me crazy, but I had a strong feeling that odd looking shirt on a hanger would look adorable when worn. So, I put the Lysol on hold and slipped into the dressing room.
I was immediately smitten with the loud yellow tank top sporting a glittery dreamcatcher design on the front and a knot tied in the back. The shirt comes with a comfortable fitting deep sky blue bandeau that neither strangles you, nor slips down to your waist like some bandeaus tend to do if you are active. The shirt is light, airy and sure to keep you cool in the Summer heat.
To accessorize the look, I found an adorable rustic looking organic shaped necklace at Nuts About Squirrels. The hand-carved charm compliments the look of the shirt. Plus, the money spent goes towards a good cause.
A super cute, colorful 26” Brown Leather & Multi Square Mosaic Bead Wrap Braclet, which is available on Amazon.com via Luos Cultural Goods, adds a dash of flare to the outfit. The colorful stones in the bracelet help accent the bright feathered dreamcatcher design on the shirt.
The thing about the shirt is that almost anything will go with it. Bangle Bracelets. Silver or Gold Chain. Beaded Necklace.
No outfit is ever complete without shoes. Something practical. Something cute. And most importantly, something affordable. Enter Dawgs Women’s 3-Strap Sandal. The best things about this sandal are...they go with everything. They are light. They don’t get a foot stain like most sandals tend to do. They are washable. And they have an arch support so no achy feet at the end of the day. These sandals are truly a foot’s best friend. They come in many colors and designs. Just make sure to order one size larger than you normally wear. For example...if you wear a 7 you might want to order an 8.
Prices range from $20.99 & up
If you are feeling creative, try wearing your hair in two low hanging pigtails. For a little extra flair I took a set of beaded Panama Jack bracelets I had and used them as rubber-band barrettes. The colors were brown with a few green beads mixed in. It helped complete the “wild child” look I was going for.
This outfit will undoubtedly make you stand out in a crowd in all of the right ways. It is perfect for a casual date, an outdoor concert, a beach party....pretty much any Summer fun. You can pair the above look with a cute pair of blue jeans, capri pants or shorts. A mid-length skirt works too. Be creative. The possibilities are endless.
