For those of you having serious Coachella withdrawals or dying for the weekend to channel your inner hippie child, we’ve found the perfect bohemian pieces to fill the void. All of these pieces are an amazing transition from day to night and work for a sunny day or a night out.
Think classics with a beachy edge. Cropped tops paired with denim cutoffs and sandals for the day and a mini skirt and booties at night are essential. Try a crop top with a highwaisted bottom that just shows your upper abs (right under the bandeau) if you want to make it a little more runway inspired. We love Ashley from Purseandboots.com and her effortless vibe. Also try a flowy bell sleeve, tank top or tee and don’t forget the denim for layering.

Planet Blue is an amazing place to find all of these pieces but try thrift stores and the Fairfax flea market on Sundays for vintage that you (or your drycleaner) can alter.

Summer means comfier shoes, well sometimes. The Isabel Marant bootie has become a staple for celebrities and off duty models, but there are plenty of less expensive versions-try Dolce Vita & Steve Madden. Of course you need a go to sandal to bare that pretty nail color you chose, instead of a gladiator opt. for a ankle sandal with a tribal print like these from UO. For some of you it may be a good or bad thing that Lindsey Lohan has these Jeffery Campbell’s but they are an amazing day to night shoe! Last but not least the moccasin, it speaks for itself; comfy, cute and carefree.
