Boho chic

Bohemian influences are everywhere this spring.  The skinny pant is being replaced with a wide leg pant and flat sandals are taking over 5" heels.  This is not to say that you still can't wear your skinny jeans or high heels (I know I can't afford to lose the extra height!) but designers are showing an easier look on the runways. 

Boho-chic is about flowy pieces, fringe, macrame and owls.  (Lucky me.)  You can wear a flat sandal, wedge or platform shoe for a fresh spring look. Jeans and pants alike are getting wider leg openings and higher rises.  (A plus for those with problems finding jeans that fit the hip and rear but always gap in the back.  The higher rise should eliminate the gap and the wider leg will give you more room in the thighs and balance out full hips.)

Fringe, this spring, is like last fall's fur.  It's everywhere.  And no rabbits were harmed in the making of said fringe.  (Cow's didn't get so lucky. Sorry.)

So pick up one piece or try them all, but get ready for a bohemian rhapsody.

I'll still definitely go for height! I looked at some Steve Madden clogs last weekend at DSW and they were on sale... but I couldn't buy them because of the 30 for 30. I hope they're still there in two weeks. haha Love these Spring looks!

I don't have words to describe how much I adore the new 70's trend! The floppy hats the flaired jeans, fringes... I'm such a boho hippie in heart! :D
Have a wonderful week darling!
