Boho Babe

Boho Babe

Spring is finally in full bloom, which means we can break out the other half of our wardrobe that we've been missing so much while bundled in sweaters, scarves and layers and layers of wool.  Ahhh, how refreshing that cotton and linen feels against our skin, not to mention the sunshine!

A spring trend we love - that seems to show up year after year - is the 70's boho babe.  We've got fringe coming out of our ears, ethnic inspired embroidery, exaggerated floral prints and crochet details for days.  You can definitely mix all these elements together with your gladiator sandals for a look that's a bit wild yet totally fun, but it's an easy style to mix subtly into your day to day look.  You can keep it casual by simply adding a peasant blouse to your Mother Denim jeans, plus a couple wrap bracelets and a fringe bag.  

Hartford "Horsica" Top, Mother Denim "Drop Out" jean, Rag & Bone wide brim fedora, Jacquie Aiche mini abalone double horn necklace, Love Heals freshwater pearl wrap bracelets
& Day Birger et Mikkelsen fringe hobo bag.

Anther reason we love this trend, is it's versatility, there is no limit to who can wear it or how much you dress it up or down.

Peace, love and Fashion,
