Fashionista …or no?

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.”


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…..
