Fiona's Style

It's back. Burn Notice. My favorite show, and if you've been following me for any length of time, you probably already knew that, right Kristin?
 
I will never blog about what went down on The Bachelorette, but every summer I will gush about how much I adore Burn Notice; how smitten I am with Michael, how badly I want to be (or at least dress) like Fiona, and how much I enjoy the show's fun, clever writing.

I've spent a lot of time dissecting Fiona's wardrobe; she keeps things pretty simple:

Long, somewhat messy hair. I'd say don't wash it for a day or two and sleep with it in a braid for the waviness. Keep the makeup to a minimum.

Bold little cocktail dresses in bright colors, the shorter the better.

Wedges, since they are easier to run and fight in, are essential.

It's important to keep your eyes safe from those harsh Miami rays, go for big, dark sunnies.
Brown Oversized Sunnies at Forever 21 $5.80

Leather Wrap Bracelets are a simple accessory with a tough vibe.
Cognac Leather Wire Wrap Bracelet at Etsy $25

 Fiona needs both hands free to do all the ass-kicking she does, so she has the sexiest fanny pack ever. If you aren't bold enough to pull off a waist bag like the Happy Cow Leather Hip Bag $74, then go for a nice leather fringe cross-body from American Eagle $40


And as for me...

I love this post! I'm a huge Burn Notice fan (though I pine more for Jesse than Michael, I wouldn't kick Michael out of bed for eating crackers) and I love Fi's simple style. These are great picks and you are rocking that sexy fanny pack!

Emily said...

Soo pretty, Lydia! I love this color on you.

Alycia (Crowley Party) said...

FASHION ICE said...

Kavery said...

That's a kickass look. I do like the style of the dress and fanny pack

La Fille D'or said...

ah! that dress is amazing - I love the color combo with the 'fanny' pack.

Shey said...

I actually love the orange and pink together, orange is the best! =D I've never watched that show, and that is one cool way to wear a fanny pack!

Theonlyfashionprincess said...

great post! :) I think the items you picked are even more beautiful than the ones on the pictures.
And about your outfit, you look fab!! :) x

Mochachocolata Rita said...

you ladies made waist bags look sexy.
I'll have to stream from youtube T_T

DaniellaBella said...

YES YES YES!! I love this show! I'm about a season behind as I'm watching it on Sidereel at my leisure but man, so good. Spying, kicking, intrigue, funny, and lots of yogurt eating... Fiona's waist bag is the primary reason I bought my leather pocket belt. Now I just need someone to spar with.
PS you look like an incredible Fiona, and if I may say, much sexier!!

TheMadTwins said...

that dress is so nice! Love the bright color. You look so fabulous in it :)

Debby said...

You look awesome in pink! This is totally your color. I love the sunglasses... and the price. I tend to sit on/ lose/break sunglasses so I have learned not to spend a lot of money on them but to buy a bunch of inexpensive pairs to carry me through the season. xo

Shelley said...

I to LOVE Burn Notice and was so excited for the new season to start. Love your blog and love that you are able to find stuff like Fi wears!

MosaMuse said...

Love the "belt bag"! I won't call it a fanny pack. ;-)

Bonnie said...

I've never watched Burn Notice, but you're not the only person I've heard good things about it from, so I should! And you are looking hot!! I love the colors, and I even love this sexy version of a fanny-pack you're rocking!

Madeline Quaint said...

I've never heard of the show btw, but if it comes to Hungary, I'll definitely be watching. :)

You look so cool! I love when bloggers write about their inspiration for an outfit like you've done here.

Kristin said...

I missed Jessie. He was in it so briefly. I like the dynamic he adds to the group...but I digress. I drool over Fi's wedges every time I watch BN!

StyleID said...

Wow Fiona, I love her style plus I am in Miami and love Burn Notice just because I get a reminder of how pretty it is here, sometimes we forget that when we see the same things in the same way day after day. She is spectacular.
I am totally into your hip bag (and hers) you look beautiful with the dress and the colors are fantastic.
I will include a hip bag in one of my next outfits, you remind me how cool they are and how pretty they look.

Cee said...

I don't have cable, so I have to admit I've never seen Burn Notice- but thanks to this post, I'm definitely admiring the wardrobes that its stars wear :) And your outfit is pretty awesome, too. I'm particularly fond of your little waistpack (I'm not really sure what to call it.) It's so unusual but really fun and unique for summer!
xox,
Cee
