Green Urban Outfitters Kimono

Kimonos are one of my favorite things this spring! They’re great for layering because it’s lighter than a coat or jacket for when it’s just not quite warm enough outside for a t-shirt or when there’s that little breeze that makes you shiver. Plus they tend to come in fabulous prints that are way more fun that your basic cardigan. The one I am wearing is from Urban Outfitters and they have a bunch of cute ones right now if you’re looking for one. Forever 21 also had some great ones that weren’t very expensive the last time I was there!

All Gold Everything

This has been one of the best dresses that I ever purchased. I bought it for a Christmas Party, but I have been able to wear it a few times. I never got to take pictures in it so I decided to wear it for these photos I took with Jessa and Vivian! They are seriously both so talented. (see their links below!)

Alice & Olivia is one of my all time favorite brands. They make the best dresses for parties and events. They are the first brand I look at when I need a fancy dress. They fit so well and they are so fun! If you haven’t noticed, I am a little bit obsessed with the color gold, so the year I wore this it was one of the first dresses I saw and I couldn’t get it out of my head. I’m so glad I choose it because I loved it and continue to love it every time I wear it!

Blue Sequin Jacket and Steve Madden Sandals

I love a great statement piece. This sequined jacket is to die for. Sometimes something just jumps off the shelf at you and you know that’s what it’s going to do when you wear it. I love mixing these kinds of things into the basics of my wardrobe. I definitely have TONS of basics. My friends always tease me that I have ten shirts that look exactly the same, so I love when I find something that stands out like this!kristin-kaileyraephoto-20kristin-kaileyraephoto-25kristin-kaileyraephoto-18picstitch-17kristin-kaileyraephoto-23kristin-kaileyraephoto-15kristin-kaileyraephoto-19picstitch-18kristin-kaileyraephoto-26kristin-kaileyraephoto-16

Boteh Maxi Dress from Anthropologie

Happy Friday Everyone!

This could be one of my favorite dresses ever. I just think it is absolutely beautiful. I love the print, color, the jeweled neckline, the fit…I could just go on. Anthropologie carries my favorite maxi dresses every year. I love this one because I definitely think you can dress it up or dress it down. It just depends on the shoes and what accessories you wear with it. I think wearing the gold and minimal accessories here left it a little dressier, but if I wanted to make it more casual I would wear some brown wedges or flat sandals, add a brown belt, and maybe wear a top knot. How would you style this dress?

I also have to give a shout out to Vivian MakeUp Artist, who did my hair and makeup. I have never really gotten my hair or makeup done before, except when I was younger and had to do it for ballet, and that was totally different. I usually don’t wear very much and I have always wondered what it would be like to get all done up and have someone just do their magic on you. I’m in absolute awe of her. I don’t want this to come off the wrong way, but I felt absolutely beautiful. I honestly can’t stop looking at these photos (and that is many thanks to the photographer JessaKae as well…she is the bomb.com!) I tend to be very critical of myself and I get down on myself a lot, but when I saw these I was just so happy. Both of these girls are amazing and if you ever need photos done you should look both of them up!

Gap Fashion Show

Last Saturday, Gap at the University Mall invited a bunch of us to walk in their Spring Fashion Show. It was so much fun because it was really chill and I got to do it with all of my best blogger friends! We got to pick out our favorite outfit from the store and style a mannequin to be in the store during Friends & Family Week as well. (see mine below!) Thank you to all my friends that came and did the show with me and that came and watched! I’m so glad I didn’t trip!!!

For details of the outfit I picked out, scroll down. I am in love with their boyfriend shorts. They are so comfy. I’m going to wear them all summer. Also, be sure to visit their store or site because they have TONS of markdowns right now, up to 50% off!
