Casual Ikat Lookbook







I shared my love of Ikat pieces in my Ikat Love Lookbook and pulled out another ikat piece for a BBQ we went to.  The top I am wearing is recently from Forever 21, the shorts are linen from Alice+Olivia, the shoes are Gucci, bag is from Chanel (a collection around 8 years ago), belt is from J. Crew, bracelet is from BCBG, earrings are from Nadri, and necklace is my own.  The shirt is made out of chiffon fabric and was pretty flowy, I belted it to slim down the look and give myself a waist.  I mixed gold and black accessories to give it a little glamour and dress up my look. My structured Chanel bag is one of my favorites.  It was my first Chanel bag which I purchased in the Paris Chanel store.

Forever 21 Ikat Chiffon Top

I love the purple color and the chiffon fabric makes it lightweight and perfect for summer.  I have also worn this top with white jeans and a black blazer with black wedges for a night out. And if you want to dress it up more, tuck it into a tight black skirt or pair with skinny black pants and a chunky necklace for a night out!  The ikat print has mixes of black, white, purple, and yellow so it pairs easily with a variety of bottoms.  

Alice+Olivia Black Cady Shorts

The Cady shorts are a classic piece that Alice+Olivia has in their collection.  I think I purchased my shorts two years ago and they are a staple in my summer wardrobe; easy to pair with tops, dress up or down, and pack for trips.  

DV by Dolce Vita Wedges

These DV by Dolce Vita wedges are a great summer wedge, I love the DV or Dolce Vita line of shoes, they are comfortable, affordable, and stylish.  If you have the budget, I’ve been loving YSL sandals and I found a bunch of options on Bluefly.
