Lee Jeans X Boulevardia 2017

This past weekend I was invited to Boulevardia in Kansas City by Lee Jeans! If you don’t know, Boulevardia is a festival that celebrates music, food, and Boulevard Beer; hence the name. This isn’t a normal blog post for me but I wanted to share some images from this day with Lee!

Since I was attending this event with Lee Jeans, I felt like I should represent them by wearing a pair of their awesome denim! Although it was ridiculously hot, these jeans put my festival look together! I am wearing the Eu Lee – Scarlett High Rise Skinny Jeans in the color Charcoal Powder. I am almost six feet tall (surprise for those who have not met me in person) so I got the length in a 35 and they are PERFECT! – finally, jeans that are long enough!

Accessorizing this outfit was my favorite part! Since my outfit was all black I wanted an intense contrast by pairing lighter colored shoes and a white bandana around my neck!

Lee Jeans was one of the festival’s sponsors and they were celebrating 100 years in Kansas City! I got to hang out in their tent all day with, Lee team member, Janelle McCoy, and my guest, and close fashion friend, Brooke Robertson. Lee had some fun games inside the tent along with a station where you could get custom designs on your denim to benefit Rightfully Sewn!

It was an amazing Saturday spent in the Stockyards District in Kansas City with Lee Jeans. We got to enjoy some great live music on the main stage and even in the parking garage due to the storm; something I will not forget. I am so thankful to have had this opportunity and can’t wait to collaborate with Lee Jeans in the near future!

Feminine Floral

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.

Festival Fashion 2017 Series – 1/3

Festival season is well upon us and everyone loves festival fashion so I am going to do a three part music festival style inspired series! I am unfortunately not going to any huge music festivals as of now but I’m maybe hoping to attend a smaller one sometime this Summer.

For this look, my top and bottoms are basic but I threw on a bunch of accessories and a statement kimono. Fringe is definitely a huge trend within festival fashion and this kimono is perfect for lots of movement! I shot some with and without it because I liked the simplistic look underneath as well.

This is the perfect outdoor concert outfit. I actually wore it this past Tuesday to see The 1975! It was such a good show and I was comfortable and felt cute in this outfit the whole time. Also side note- these shorts to me at first were so ugly but now I am in love with how vintage they look + they were only $1 at a thrift store!!!

Be sure to follow me to be notified when the next two outfits of this series are up!

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!
