My daughter recently said, “Your style is totally boho. You just haven’t embraced it.”
I have no idea what she is talking about, despite her sending me 42 Pins illustrating “boho” and “boho chic”style. The next morning, I snapped her the pic above.
Me: “Is this Boho?”
Jessi: “Sorta, but not really, no. It’s more hipster.”
Me: “Well I am a hipster then.”
Jessi: “No. You’re not.”
Me: “BUT THIS IS HOW I DRESS EVERY DAY AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!”
Fall always gets me thinking about dressing fancier, better, lookin’ cute. I love scarves and boots and sweaters and socks and layers. I love putting makeup on and not sweating it all off in 5 minutes. I love purses and bags that I can’t be bothered with carrying around in the summertime. I love orange and red and gold and brown.
So while I would like to “embrace my boho,” as instructed, and have some sort of fashion direction to help me navigate a world that is a bit unfamiliar to me, I am still not sure “Boho” is who I am. But spending time playing with clothes and makeup and Pinterest has been a very welcome distraction from grad school and work!
On an only slightly related note… This morning I tried a sample of Urban Decay foundation that Jessi left behind when she moved and it may have been life changing. Which sucks because that shit ain’t cheap…..
