Modern Canadian Tuxedo

One of my absolute favorite things to do is to create a denim Canadian tuxedo. All you need is a good denim jacket and blue jeans. However, I did not bring any of my denim jackets to Italy with me and I have so many at home, buying another one sounded kind of ridiculous. I did stumble upon this fringe crop top while out shopping in Florence and had the idea! It came with the white tee underneath and I paired it with jeans and wow- a modern, Canadian tux!

All White After Labor Day – Cinque Terre, Italy

Happy Sunday!

My last post was about my weekend in Cinque Terre and I loved what I wore so much I wanted to do a whole separate post with more photos! I think that the “no white after Labor Day” rule is stupid and outdated. Fashion is supposed to be fun and I don’t believe in rules.

The KC Creatives Meetup 2/3/18

I feel as if I have been going to meet-ups left and right and I absolutely love it. It’s so refreshing to work with tons of creative people who all have their own individual mindset. I will keep updating this post as more shots roll in!

The theme of this meet-up hosted by the KC Creatives was Valentine’s Day. Molly Balloons (queen balloon artist of Kansas City) was there to create some fun things too. I decided to stick with the theme and wear the color red by throwing on my favorite red striped flare pants from AFRM. I wear these things so often I think I should buy a second pair for when these completely give out.

I have a short part 2 from this meet up coming soon! Stay tuned!

Hey everyone! I have been eyeing this two piece set for a while from the store I work at, Etiquette Boutique, and finally decided that I needed to purchase it. Sets are so much fun and you get at least three different outfits out of them when you mix and match the pieces. I paired these booties with it because they were the exact shade of pink as the flowers in the set! I love this look and can’t wait to style it in many different ways!

Also, I will be going to Kansas City Chiefs player, Travis Kelce’s, charity fashion show in a few days with my work family representing Etiquette Boutique! Be sure to follow along on my Instagram @bellalightner.

Festival Fashion Series 2017 – 3/3

Here is the final look of my festival fashion series! These feather hem vintage Levi’s were the jeans that inspired this series. I found these at my favorite buy, sell, trade store, Arizona Trading Company- where I find all of my unique pieces. I paired them with this white lace crop top that I bought literally five years ago from Topshop. It’s one of my favorite tops and I knew they were the perfect match for the jeans.

I hope you all enjoyed this festival fashion series, I had so much fun putting these outfits together. I’m just sad that I’m not going to any festivals anytime soon!

In case you miss them…. Part 1 and Part 2.

Palazzo Pants

Hi hi! So, I’ve worn this exact outfit already a million times but there is no photo proof so I decided to blog about it! I bought this top and these super cool pants at Zara when I was in Las Vegas last summer. Luckily, flare pants are still in so I can keep wearing them while also being trendy. These pants are so loud and have a lot going on so I wanted to keep my top simple; don’t want to be too too extra. It’s such a comfortable, bohemian look.

These pants are so Coachella-esque, they make me so sad I’m not there. I plan on doing some festival inspired outfits this summer as well so keep checking back for more!
