Instant Crush: Bohemian

It's no secret that when I get dressed I tend to err on the side of preppy, but there is a large part of me that adores the bohemian style. Of course there is no reason not to incorporate few boho-inspired pieces into my summer wardrobe that feel true to my style and not like I've just walked out of a Free People catalog (even though I sometimes wish I could live inside one).

There is also no reason these pieces can't be budget friendly. Old standbys like Target and Forever 21 always have some cute options, and I'd also love to introduce you to Damsel, an online boutique which just launched a few months ago. They have tons of bohemian inspired pieces and every item on the site is under $50, with free shipping!

  6. I have to admit that when summer comes along, my admiration for all things bohemian suddenly increases ten-fold. I can't picture myself ever donning a floral crown but a cute batik printed bikini might be just the right choice. Or those sandals - I love those sandals.

  8. I am totally swooning over that scarf. So pretty:) Kisses

    And that's funny that you say your style is preppy-I've always seen a (subtle) touch of boho in some of your everyday looks!
