Jennie from A Pocket Full of Polka Dots called boho for this month’s Fab 40s’ theme. Of course I was super excited to hear this theme because let’s face it: I’m definitely a bit bohemian in my style. I am a sucker for anything with a cultural aesthetic especially when it comes to colorful tassels, intricate embroidery, or paisley patterns. The thing is when I started to figure out how to style an outfit for this post, I got a little nervous. I could totally overdo my bohemian style–kinda like this Coachella inspired look or this whimsical LRD (little red dress). For some reason, since I claim myself to be a little boho, I was scared to appear OTT (over the top) as I am sometimes referred. So, for this look, I just dressed as if it was a normal Saturday. Perhaps I would go shopping in town for the day. Because usually for every day, I add a little touch of bohemian to my look whether it’s with tassels, fringe, lace, or cutoff denim, there’s always a little something hippy chic to my style.
Jennie from A Pocketful of Polka Dots
Generally Jennie is our petite, classy, and preppy rep. She really wanted to challenge herself with the boho theme. In my opinion, her entire looks seems pretty effortless. She nailed boho chic–utterly and completely. And she still looks super cute. Nice job Jennie! And what a fun theme for all of us. See more of Jennie’s classy style over at A Pocketful of Polka Dots.
Daenel from Living Outside of the Stacks
Jennie not only named our theme this month, but she also invited Daenel from Living Outside of the Stacks–and yes, she’s referring to the library stacks. Daenel is a fellow librarian! Yay for that!! Also, Daenel knows how to wear bohemian. I love the pettticoat layer she has going on underneath her neutral floral wrap dress.
Sheela of Sheela Writes
Queen She–as I’ve started to call my good friend Sheela, really surprised me with this look. The floppy hat, fringe bag, dress as tunic with a kimono layer, well it’s no surprise she looks like she hangs with the Olsen twins. What I do adore about Sheela’s styling here is that she still as the funky as heck heels thrown it.
Mary of Curly Bird Chirps
It’s pretty unanimous and it might become official: Mary is the expert with dresses. Each and every time she just kills the look with a new and different dress. And now with the boho theme this one might just be my favorite. The blue color and the fabric’s pattern are just stunning.
Samantha of Fake Fabulous
Samantha always has it goin’ on! She is seriously a chameleon of style. She layers like no one’s business and can adapt to each style’s theme with ease. My favorite part of Sam’s styling are those lovely layered necklaces. I know there is a style story behind each one. I feel like I could sit on her patio and listen to the stories behind them all….
Diane from Fashion on the 4th Floor
Simply put, Diane is just cool. Look how sleek she is here. With legs for days, she’s rockin’ those flares. Her muted color choices are boho in of themselves. Are you wondering if she really did attend Coachella alongside the other glamorous bloggers? I am!!
Dawn Lucy from Fashion Should Be Fun
Dawn Lucy, we are going to miss you so much. Jennie really did choose the best theme for your final Fab 40s post. You have always been a boho style inspiration for me in each of your style posts. You seem quite similar to me in that there’s usually some touch of bohemian in your sartorial choices. DL, all the best to you next month as you turn 50 and enter into even more amazing style–because that’s what you have no matter what your age. Luckily, Fashion Should be Fun isn’t too far away! It’s been so wonderful getting to know you!
And me from Kremb de la Kremb!
I grabbed my new off the shoulder black top and paired it with my DIYed cutoff denim skirt. I wore two embellished items that I made myself: fringe sandals and a tassel bag. To include a little India to my look I added my Ganesha silver earrings. And finally, I just wore some funky mirrored aviator styled sunnies that I picked up in Boracay, Philippines. Do I look subtely boho to you? I hope so! I really didn’t want to over do it–which if you looked at my wardrobe would be totally possible!
