Hi there, fabulous! Are you feeling brilliant today?
Me too! I’m in a tropical mood, and it seems like the perfect day to sit in the sun with a piña colada in hand.
But… when you can’t whisk off to a private island, a bohemian, tropical outfit can get you in the spirit too!

The 70s Island Skirt
I’m wearing a burnt orange, flowing, fringe midi skirt to get that sunny vibe. The 70s have been trending for the past year or so—and it doesn’t look like they’re going anywhere soon! So it’s time to invest in some fringe, ladies!
Just like my fiery red pants, this orange accentuates my hips and legs while giving the outfit a pop of vibrant color! I love suede, but it can get hot in the sun. This long fringe cools down the outfit by giving my legs more room to breathe, move, and play in the rays!
The Hot-Cool Floral Shirt
Pairing this unique skirt with a floral shirt gives the look an earthy and natural vibe. These flowers focus largely on browns, oranges, and yellows with gorgeous accents of navy and turquoise. Similar to landscape prints, floral designs can actually make you more relaxed and meditative when you look at them. No bad vibes here!
The top is sheer, making it breathable in the summer sun. I love the moderate V-neck and the thin strip showing of my rock-hard abs. It keeps me cool while looking hot! 😉
Strutting In Heels
You know I love my black heels! These hug the front of my foot, while leaving the rest open with a few “fringes” of their own. These straps keep the look of the flowing lines consistent from my legs to my feet!
These heels are low enough to control my steps on the cobblestones, but high enough to show off the leg that pops through the sultry fringe! Heels are a great way to exhibit all your hard work from “leg day” at the gym, just like Sex and the City’s hot high-heel lover Samantha!
The purple brings out the cool accents of the blues and greens in the shirt, creating a harmonious color blend that is both calm and exciting! I think the purple gives me an extra-tropical feel, like my eyes are reflecting the hues of an island nighttime sky.
I went for a similar look with my nails: a neutral light pink with an accent nail on the ring finger. Half of this look is cool and refined, and the other half is wild and spirited—and this nail style gives me the best of both worlds! My ring finger perfectly relates back to the blues and navy in my shirt, creating one cohesive look.
All About Accessories
“Fashion” isn’t just limited to clothing and makeup. It’s important to have the right accessories—even including your phone! The wood case reflects the organic look of my shirt, which makes me not only look the part but feel it too!
Does that necklace look familiar to you? It was in my little black dress post! A dainty necklace with black pendants is so versatile, it can go from pairing with a black dress to an islandy feel in a “breeze.”” I also love this necklace because it magically looks great with every neckline.
And the perfect accessory for your tropical look? Sunglasses of course! The bigger frames and brown lenses bring out the browns in the shirt (while also protecting your eyes while having fun in the sun).
This is the perfect outfit for an island getaway every day! It’ll keep you feeling cool, looking hot, and soaking up the sunny rays!
