Cocostyling for Kendra Thornton – Weekend in Orlando

Cocostyling for Kendra Thornton – Weekend in Orlando

Hello dolls,

today I will indulge in my dream of becoming a personal stylist, which virtually came true when Kendra Thornton, travel expert featured in American tv shows like Tyra Banks and Nate Berkus, challenged me to style her looks for a weekend in Orlando.

Here are her requirements, which I’m publishing upon her explicit consense:
“Best Fashion Forward
I love planning family vacations! There’s nothing like planning a trip to give me a good excuse to shop for new fashion. This year, I’ll be heading to Orlando to spend a few weeks with my family. At age 40, I’m getting to the point where I risk embarrassing my kids when I pick my own fashions. For that reason, I’m turning to you for advice. During our stay, my family and I plan to enjoy an evening in Downtown Disney. As the cameras will be snapping to capture memories of our time together, I want to make sure I look my best. Help me come up with a great outfit for this evening! Here’s some information about the restaurant where we’ll be eating:
The Rainforest Café
I’ve always been intrigued by the rainforest, but a trip to the Amazon with three youngsters isn’t going to happen. Fortunately, there is The Rainforest Café in Downtown Disney. Here, guests eat in the midst of a simulated rainforest, complete with rain and thunderstorms. Big, beautiful butterflies adorn the trees and vines of this enchanted place. Elephants, monkeys and other animated animal figures are scattered throughout the dining area. Both kids and adults will enjoy selections from the menu of all-American favorites. For dessert, I’m looking forward to the Sparkling Volcano. When the wait staff brings this mountain-shaped lava cake to our table, it will be erupting with a lit sparkler at its peak.
Orlando Style
Every city I’ve visited has its own style. Orlando, a city known around the world for its tourism industry, it features a laidback feel. It seems as though everything you see here says “vacation.” Whether I’m enjoying a round of minigolf with the kids, wandering beautiful parks, having fun at one of the local amusement parks or sipping wine with my husband on an evening out alone, I know I’ll have more fun when I look my best. I can’t wait to see the fashions you suggest for my family night at Downtown Disney. I’m sure you’ll help me turn heads as well as keep me from embarrassing my kids with a dowdy appearance in photos.”

And here are the 4 style boards I created for her, with an overall budget of approx 150$ per outfit.
You can trace back all items links by clicking on each board.

Saturday at Downtown Disney: I chose for Kendra a comfortable outfit, featuring a pale-blue (#trendalert) romper, Menorca style slip-ons (#trendalert), and a floppy hat which can convenently be folded into her backpack (#trendalert) before roller coaster rides 🙂

Family night at the Rainforest Café: a laidback but chic look is called for, featuring a tropical print (#trendalert) A-line minidress and a roomy fringed (#trendalert) bag, since going out with kids bans small-sized purses. As the humidity rate will be high, I suggest Kendra should be ahead of the game, styling her blond hair in natural waves with the help of a sea-mist spray (#trendalert).

Sight-seeing on Sunday: why can’t a sensible tourist’s outfit be drop-dead cute as well? A floral print (#trendalert) top will give some perk to khaki shorts and flat sandals. While casual fedora and shades protect Kendra’s beautiful face, sunscreen is still mandatory, and a bottle of thermal water is essential to soothe and hydrate skin at high temperatures. I couldn’t but include a bikini for a trip in Florida!

Romantic dinner with hubby requires heels (metallic finish #trendalert) and a flirtatious dress. No kids no maxi bag. A mini clutch in faux python (#trendalert) with a hint of yellow looks like the perfect complement to the royal blue ruches. White nails (#trendalert) are a lovely match for all outfits proposed, and I’m sure would stand out on Kendra’s honey tan.
More than ever I’ll be looking forward to YOUR precious comments.
Do you agree with my styling advice? Would you change anything?
Much much love

I can´t believe this because the looks you are created regarding the specifications are perfect!
