Going Boho

Boho-chic has been prevalent in fashion to varying degrees for the last 20 years. There is something about the flowy designs, pretty prints and casual femininity which designers and celebrities alike continue to resort back to. Coachella is practically the yearly celebration of boho-chic. This season pays tribute to the 70’s boho look with flared pants, wide-sleeves, maxi-dresses and fringing.

Personally I was not a fan of the 70’s fashion, and I may never be a fan of flared pants, but it did pave the way for intricate prints and feminine dress styles. They make me fantasise about dancing around in a field of daisies barefoot without a care to spare, which is sort-of how I imagine the 70’s decade to be honest. Here is a collection of some of my favourite new boho-chic dresses:

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Christmas: the time of bent budgets and broken bank accounts. But despite the fact that my wallet is never ready for christmas, I am ALWAYS eager to crack open the decorations boxes and listen to some good ol’ Bublé. It’s just an incredibly joyful time of the year, and some Bublé and Jamie Oliver turkey multiply the xmas greatness.

And, oh, the food. Presents do not even compare to the joy which the Christmas feast brings. Not even the promise of bargains from the incoming Boxing Day sales can waver my attention from the food that I am fortunate enough to consume on Christmas. God, I am a lucky gal.

Since it’s a family day and we’re all a little bit classy, we love to dress a little bit special. I even honoured the occasion with a floral wreath on my head, ’cause Christmas.

A Bohemian Smock

I love the bohemian look; it’s relaxed and feminine and goes well with my unruly hair. It was formerly adopted by those who live the unconventional, artistic life who didn’t hold much consideration towards fashion and allowed their free-spiritedness to be articulated through the loose-fitting patterned rags they’d put on their back. How ironic considering it has become a fashion phenomenon that a million girls are attempting to mimic. It has evolved from being regarded as ‘gypsy-like’ to ‘hippie’ and more recently to the 21st century label of ‘boho-chic’.

Vanessa Hudgens pulls the look off remarkably well as she stands as this era’s ‘Boho Chick’. I don’t know what I think about having flowers crown your head, personally it’s a little too 70’s-esque/flower power for me, however there’s something about the easy simplicity of channeling the bohemian look that makes it appear so pretty and effortless.

Myself included in the million girls wanting to look like V Hudge, I found a summer dress that encapsulates the bohemian flair that I want to achieve. It also intermingles with the appearance of a 60’s smock dress in the way that it just hangs there like a tea-towel, so yes it is very comfortable and light-weight.
