This past Saturday I had the pleasure of previewing a new vegan food spot opening up in Lexington called "FIKA Vegan Cantina"! I've been a vegetarian for almost 11 years and have been venturing into more vegan foods lately, so needless to say, I was beyond excited. The excitement continued when I was planning my outfit and realized there was no better evening than this one to break out my new "Beach Hugger" Tee from Amuse Society! No beaches in site in Lexington, but FIKA will definitely give you west-coast vibes with their tropical aesthetic.
Of course I decided to wear my Striped High-Waisted pants (sans tie belt) from Marine layer for the event! I've loved pairing them with T-shirts and finding new ways to wear them so they can be dressed up or down. Marine Layer was such a complementary brand to the event because they are environmentally friendly and make a lot of their products from recycled materials! These Pants are unfortunately sold out, but their Gabrielle Pant in Navy is a great option to achieve the same look (and they're on sale!).
I always try and add an extra boho-style touch to any outfit when I can, so my gold layered lariat necklace was the perfect finishing touch. I just picked this up from
E Leigh's boutique at The Summit in Lexington (unfortunately no online store yet) for only $12! But this Layered Gold Necklace from LuLu's is so similar and still under $15!
We all gathered on the patio at sunset to take in the view and sip on some fresh coconut water before we sampled some of the amazing vegan food FIKA will be featuring. Everything about the night felt rose-tinted and the lighting on the patio could not have been more beautiful with the palm plants and flowers. FIKA is located in Granola Culture which is a beautiful environmentally friendly space, so the everything about it felt tropical and comforting. I'll be doing a recap on the event later this week that I can't wait to share with you all, so stay tuned!
Below are some more options to achieve an outfit similar to the one I'm wearing in this post!
