CREATIVITY IS KEY

If you like Bohemian style as much as I do, then you're in luck :)  
Because Boho style is considered more of a state of mind rather than 'just a fashion trend that will fade in time'.....
(And with the economic times many of us are facing, boho is a very wallet-friendly dress code ;)

Bohohemians seem to be the people who don't want to live according to the 'norms' of society.
It began as the 'trend' of the nomadic European and Gypsy clothing from the 19th century.
This style is more "crafty" in it's look , combining the ethnic look and romance . 
Bohemian's are what most call the "rule breakers" . 
Plus, Bohemian clothing is affordable and you can have it without spending a lot of money ;) 
DIY lovers seem to be big fans of this style. (AKA- ME :)

Boho is certainly small on cost ..... 
Which means you don't need to shop the mall.
Thrift Stores have everything you'll ever need to wear  ( and be) a true bohemian :)
Today's ensemble is my low-key boho.The fitted jacket gives it a more structured look.
I've found that you don't need an "anti-establishment" attitude to rock this look.
Bohemian clothing has no fixed rules, so the free-flowing expression of your style and flair can be easily incorporated into Boho :) 
Such as pairing a fitted jacket with flowy dresses or skirts ;)  Or layering on those vintage, shiny brooches.
Creativity is the key to being Boho !
Remember to keep You in the mix.......
( It's not just a style, It's an adventure ;) tee, hee :)
My outfit:
  • Skirt: thrifted, India.
  • Skirt as dress: Limited, thrifted
  • Fitted jacket: Saks, thrifted
  • Granny boots: Nine West, thrifted
  • Earrings: World Mkt.
  • Sunnies: Dollar Store
  • Scarf: Targei'
  • Flower clip: really old .

That's a great hair-do!!!!!

Diane Costanza said...

Your hair looks fabulous and the whole ensemble is very flattering.

I have always loved boho but am by nature very reserved, so I add "my boho" with accessories more than anything.

I am a devoted shopper of Goodwill. I even have my son looking forward to it.

I love this look! the fitted jacket with the flowy everything else. It's just too good.

Sometimes my students have asked me my highest life value and invariably, I have replied CREATIVITY.

The warm pinks and oranges in this outfit are so beautiful! And I love your high, messy bun with the little flower. This outfit is bohemian at its best!! :)

Thanks for all the info on "bohemian". I don't actually have many pieces in that style, but I think I fit some of those criteria anyway! I always think its so cool when people can make their own clothes too! DIY's are a lot of fun!! Super cute outfit too! I really love all the colors too! :)

Reva, I think this is one of my favorite ensembles you've put together so far. LOVE the mix of the neutral and conservative blazer with your richly hued scarf, blouse and skirt. GREAT look, and looks so comfortable and wearable.

And you most def make boho fun!
