Keepsake The Label Genesis Flutter Gown

BTM Rating: 8/10

Price at time of review: $245.00

Pros:

  • Beautiful color and pattern
  • Sheer sleeves
  • Opaque in the right places.
  • Flattering cut.

Cons: 

  • Very long
  • No dress numbers (S,M,L, ect. instead)

Fit: Long. I’m only 5’2″, but even with 4″ heels, the dress was still very long in a size small. If you’re tall, this dress is for you! Otherwise, it will need to be tailored. Torso fit as expected.

I picked this gorgeous gown for its sheer flutter sleeves and minty color. Its breezy draping is perfect for summer style. Wear this dress to impress during the day. It is close cut in the waist, creating a sexy silhouette. The front is very low cut, but excessive cleavage can be covered with a bralette or cami if you like.

The flutter sleeves and flowing skirt balance out the form fitting cut of the dress. It is quite long, even with me standing at 5’6″ with the heels. This is great if you’re tall! If not, a bit of tailoring will fix the problem.

Style Tips:

  • Despite the cost and flair, this dress is great for daytime wear.
  • Use accessories to add personal style. A wide brimmed hat, stunning heel, and cute bag complete the look. For sparkle, this dress is very cute with a necklace, bracelet, and earrings.
  • This dress is very low cut. If you have a smaller bust, this dress can be worn braless. If your bust is fuller, a lace cami or bralette can be worn with the dress to cover excessive cleavage.
  • Also available in pink!

Steve Madden Bali Bohemian Woven Tassel Tote

BTM Rating: 10/10

Price at time of review: $92.43

Pros:

  • Large, spacious tote.
  • Beautiful, colorful woven pattern and tassels for beachy style.
  • Hot pink lining. You can’t see it when the bag is closed, but it’s those little extras that I love!
  • Not feeling the tassel? It’s detachable!

Cons: 

  • None!

Soft neutrals are great for summer. Add of pop of color and you’ve got something special. I adore this fun Steve Madden tote. It is everything summer.

The bag is a great size for a tote. It is spacious and roomy. If you love color, you’ll be delighted by the hot pink lining inside the tote. For the size and quality, I consider this bag a great deal.

Style Tips

  • Don’t be afraid of the colors. When paired with neutrals, you can’t go wrong.
  • This casual bag is perfect for the beach, brunch, and other daytime activities where you might need extra carrying power. Trade it for a dressier clutch at dinner time.
  • This bag pairs well with shoes that have a similar color scheme. My shoes don’t have the same pattern, but because they are similar colors and both boho, they go. You can also wear neutral tan or brown shoes.

Schutz Jeannine Pump

BTM Rating: 8/10

Price: $170.00

Pros:

  • Flattering style.
  • Trendy cacti pattern that adds a pop of color.
  • Comfortable to walk in, considering the 4″ heel.

Cons: 

  • A bit expensive, considering similar shoes that are out there.

Fit: For me, this style of shoe always runs a bit small and I have to go up a half size.

I saw this shoe and fell in love with the cacti pattern. They’re quirky, cute, and trendy. Despite the pattern, they are not too wild, and will look good with many boho style outfits as long as there is a color that ties together.

This style of heel is very in right now. The 4″ heel is comfortable to walk in. For some reason, whenever I try on this kind of shoe, it always runs small. I went up a half size and it fit perfectly.

My only complaint is the price. These Schutz heels are great, but I don’t feel like the quality is that much better than Steve Madden shoes I have that are a similar style and cost half the price. However, you can’t beat the cute cacti pattern on these!

Rampage Two-Toned Sun Hat

BTM Rating: 9/10

Price at time of review: $32.00

Pros: 

  • Cute colors.
  • Good price.
  • Functional.

Cons: 

  • One size fits all.

Fit: This hat is one size fits all and is not adjustable. It fit me great, though. If hats are often too small on you, I recommend using these hat fillers to improve the fit.

This hat has a bold black rim with a pop of color from a pink faux leather band. It’s cute, floppy, stylish, but will also keep the sun out of your face. For the price, I think this is a good hat.

It is one size fits all, but fit me perfectly. Thankfully, trying this hat out is easy with Amazon Wardrobe’s free returns.

Style Tips:

  • Got a little noggin? Hat fillers are your friends!
  • Sun hats are both stylish and functional. They add a summery touch to your outfit and keep the sun off your face.
