bohemian chic.

bohemian can mean different things depending on the individual. in general, the look gives off a romantic and free-spirited feeling. it's easy to say you want to look like nicole richie but difficult to execute, so make sure to tailor the look to suit your personal style.

here's the breakdown of my bohemian outfit:
(and ideas for creating yours)

1. a soft, flowy dress
(think gauzy dresses, soft flared denim, comfortable maxi skirts, denim cutoffs)

2. tie dye pattern and ruffled hem
(details - unconventional patterns, embellishments and embroidery, crochet insets, fringe)



3. cute sandals
(think open-toed sandals or slippers for dresses, chunky platforms for flared denim)


4. a crossbody bag
(satchels, sling bags, natural fabrics or colorful patchwork)


5. loose waves
(keep hair unfussy with natural loose waves or a messy bun, or throw in a braid or try a headscarf)

(necklaces top to bottom: kendra scott; capwell & co.; 9th & elm)

6. pile on the jewelry
(instead of one statement necklace, try layering several pieces in varying lengths; add a second or third ring)


i didn't do this last one because it's still hot here, but...
7. layer up
play around with proportions and lengths. a long scarf is just right over a tee and flared denim, cardigans and jackets layered over dresses, and kimonos over cutoffs.


i have a hard time finding bracelets that fit, so i have been loving jewelry inspired tattoos like these from flash tattoos. they are super easy to apply and last at least a week for me. after i cut the length to fit my wrist, i love using the extra on my fingers as rings. however, the rings don't last as long since i wash my hands a lot. good enough for a night out, though!

  3. Cute dress! I have a tie-dye tent dress this reminds me of, but I never wear it out of the house because I do not look nearly as cute as you do in this. Those tattoo bracelets are a great idea, I'd have loved that when I still worked in an office and couldn't stand having bulk on my wrists getting in the way while I typed.

  4. Love bohemian style! Though it seems tricky to pull off (even though it is supposed to give the opposite vibe). You've done well here! That is a cute dress!
