Spring officially arrives tomorrow. Say what? Yup, spring is here no matter what your weather forecast says and I am more than ready. Sunny weather, warm days, bring it on. Our trip to Mexico has me already thinking about looks I want to try when the weather warms up at home. I’m seeing tons of brightly colored, heavily patterned things here with a boho vibe which I’d love to wear. In Mexico.
The problem is, I’m not a huge fan of wearing pattern, bright colors and rustic materials so I know I’d never wear them at home. I never say never with fashion but I do have that brightly colored bag I bought here 4 years ago and have never used it.
This outfit is as boho as I usually get. Color coordinated neutrals and nothing rustic. I did layer 2 silver necklaces but that’s as wild as it gets. I’ve come to terms with how linen wrinkles but it’s taken me some time to get there and I still prefer how it looks before I sit down:)
My hat appears to be straw but it’s a paper/polyester blend that survives being crammed into a suitcase and comes out looking crisp and new. That’s me…crisp as possible and polished whenever possible. So what sort of earthy, boho-inspired accessories will fit the casually elegant look I prefer? Things with modern shapes, smoother textures and refined finishes.
I’m not finding that here so I hopped online and found some I would wear.
These earrings have a casually-elegant boho feel. The shape is modern and sleek and the wood gives them a boho vibe. The bead is wrapped with a polished thread which isn’t rustic and the neutral color will go with everything.
This wicker tote is made from finely woven polyurethane with wicker accents. The delicate texture would be smooth and the sheen helps step it away from being rustic. I love the round shape replicated in the handle.
These Rafia mules are almost too rustic for me but I like them so would wear them with white jeans or flowy pants. I don’t see me wearing these with a dress, but maybe a summer maxi skirt.
Here’s a few other things I would consider casually- elegant and boho.
Do you like the boho look?
How do you make it your own?
Thanks for reading and have a great day.
