I just looked up the definition of bohemian (b0*he*mi*an): “a person who has informal and uncoventional social habits, especially an artist or writer.” And some of the synonyms: unconventional, nonconformist, avant-garde, irregular, offbeat . . .
Well, that pretty much sums up most of how I dress, haha. I’ve always been a nonconformist, a bit informal and most definitely an avant-garde. But then again most artistic and creative people fit into this category and as we all know dressing is an art form, right?
I actually don’t try to put on a bohemian outfit, most of the time they just come together by themselves. Like when I pulled out these really old, and I mean really old flare jeans, the only tops that feel right are gauzy and layered with longer vests, and paired with junky heels and an embroidered bag. The only thing missing were the braids and I decided to still act somewhat my age.
And then there are times I grab a kimono and layer it over a funky tee and leggings (and sometimes jeans), throw on some booties, a floppy hat and it all the sudden becomes a bohemian outfit.
This month for Adrienne’s and Jill’s HIWM (how I wear my series) it was boho looks, it’s well worth checking them out if you want to join in being a bit informal, unconventional, a nonconformist or just off beat for a season.
Also liking up with Dawn Lucy for Fun Friday Fashion.
