"Boho Chic" is one of my favorite styles to pull off. Kate Moss, Siena Miller and Mary Kate Olsen did it best and really brought the trend to life about a decade ago. Yet, the trend, is still going strong and has transitioned a bit to what's now called "Festival Wear." What I like about it is the ease and organic feel to it. How ever it speaks to you is the right way to wear it. I feel there are no rules or confinements with this style...just do you. An oversized dress with a big print or a fitted top with fringe. You can really pull it off in any direction you choose. The only suggestion I would say is less is more. Simplicity always wins in my book. The less you make your look with, the more effortless it will become. The floppy hat is also a fabulous staple to have as well, especially as we head into fall.
As I entered my thirties and became a mom, I worried that I wouldn't be able to feel comfortable or stylish or feel young because I was older and life was different. I am not quite sure why I thought this way. I was terrified one day I would wake up with only "mom jeans" in my closet and feel like a major frump. In all actuality, I am more comfortable in my 30's than I EVER was in my 20's. The 20's is such a period of transition, growth, graduation from college, your first career(s), finding your significant other, getting married, moving in together. Whatever the case may be, there are a lot of real changes in your 20's that I wouldn't go back to for a million bucks. Don't get me wrong, I had an absolute blast in my 20's. I made my most cherished friendships, danced professionally, travelled, and tried to figure life out which was an amazing ride. Yet in my 30's I feel more beautiful and comfortable in my own skin. I know more of who I am and I am secure in my my life in my career and being a wife and a mother. If i could go back and tell my 20 something self something, it would be to enjoy life and slow down a bit more. Sounds cliche, but I feel that I always had goals and the motivation to go after them, that it almost made times tougher. I wish I would have been able to relax, let go and just enjoy the ride a bit more and not get so caught up it where I thought I should have been. What about you? What would you tell yourself in the last decade? Thanks for reading...
