So I've hopped on this mirrored sunglasses trend bandwagon. I've been searching the internet for a while and like a typical Virgo rising, I took a long damn time to find a perfect pair. But I think I've finally found what I was looking for in this particular pair from ILYMIX. (Will leave the link and the discount code at the bottom of the post if interested.:)) This time around I've decided to keep it very casual - still with a boho twist. You know me by now. If there is a twist to my look, it's that of a bohemian kind. Because honestly, I don't twist in many ways. Do you understand what I'm saying? Haha, me either. What I'm trying to say, lately I've been trying to simplify my bohemian look. So, I've thought - I'm going to try to create a casual boho look. Something minimal and comfortable. And this is, my friends, as minimal as I can get.
Warm weather is usually just an excuse for me to dress like a sailor because life is generally mundane as it is. Unless you’re Glen Coco. Then your life is everything but. Good for you! Can you actually believe that it’s June already? I know – me either. Can you actually believe how many times I jump from topic to topic? Me either. This time around I decided to go with a casual summer outfit idea because I’m a summer enthusiast. This has a lot of underlying context, like things with me usually do. As I’m writing this, I’m sitting at a local bakery one town over from mine, sipping on my cappuccino, even though it’s above 80 degrees Fahrenheit right now. I’m also wearing all black paired with a red lipstick. What is my life right now? Idk. I’m tired. Remind me what I’m supposed to talk about…? Oh, yeah – today’s outfit post.
Finding the perfect bohemian romper is not an easy task, but every now and then you do get lucky to come across one that you just need to get your hands on. Like that one day when I crossed paths with this beauty while browsing around at my local Mystique boutique. Yes, it was love at first sight or first try, whatever you'd like to call it. So my little bohemian heart fluttered like a bird in a gilded cage and that was it. The crochet details and the way it ties up at the front, plus the very lovely work around the waist is what got me. Next thing you know - I was swiping the plastic. (I really need the planets to stop retrograding on my financial sector of life and maybe while we're at it - make me less impulsive?) Idk.
This time around I present to you a modern 70s-inspired look. I've been into this "how to wear retro-inspired fashion" funk for a while... Trying to recreate, bring back or incorporate into my daily OOTDs some trends that were popular when I was a kid or when my parents were kids because today's fashion is less restrictive than ever. No rules, no this is how to wear this and that... All is fair in fashion...and...love. Right?
La Femme Bohème is a free spirit, a soul unbound, undefined, forever-changing. She is a wildfire. A shape-shifter. A rebel. A dreamer. Skinny-dipper. She escapes the confines of society at any cost. Her mind is heaven, her heart is fickle, her hands fidgety. She takes no directions. She follows rivers, currents, and the wind. Her soul is like the ocean. Her fingers on the pulse of life. She doesn't think about the past, present or future. She just is. She's a stargazer. Her eyes always fixed on the sky. She changes like the seasons.
Are you looking for a flirty date night outfit idea? If yes, then look no further, because I got you. When I think date - I usually think satin or lace. Not everyone thinks that way, but hey - I'm Venus in Taurus, so that's kind of very logical for me. Sensual materials are where it's at, for this kind of aspect. Also - I just remembered that you're not here for an astrology lecture. Sorry - Moon in Gemini. Here, I go again. It's a never ending circle, gosh, how do my friends even put up with me? I don't deserve you, seriously.
Am I cool? Are you cool? Who knows? But what I do know is that you can try a varsity-inspired look to achieve that cool-girl effect. Like a lot of things in life, coolness is something that's based on "fake it till you make it" principle. It's all about perception and appearing a certain way, till the world catches on and you finally get that coveted title of a cool girl.
Let's face it - the blue striped shirt trend is not going anywhere in 2017. If anything brands like Zara just kept reimagining their oversized striped shirts. Now you can find the blue striped shirt with various prints and embroideries on them. Or if you're really into the structure over embellishment, then the ones with bows and ruffles are perfect for you. You know what? Brands really stepped it up to the max that there's something for everyone, but only if you like stripes in the first place that is...
There isn’t a better way to dream than to dream in tulle – the flowiness and romantic quality of this beautiful material makes you feel like a princess or a whimsical fairy. This fashion season, we saw tulle everywhere – from runways to chain stores. Worn with a t-shirt and leather jacket, for a rock princess look or with a bodysuit and lace-up ballet flats for the ultimate ballerina look. Tulle has been all the rage. You know what’s funny? No matter how many times tulles goes out of style and comes back in style, I’m always welcoming the trend. Each time it reemerges, I try to do something new with it. Dress it up, dress it down, play with it. Here's one of many ways you can wear a tulle skirt in winter.
