Someone once said… “Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”

Hippy chic

 

I leave a pair of garden boots on my porch, partly for looks but also for easy access. I wear them on dewy mornings and after a rain. I have on occasion wore them for a quick shopping trip. The princess leaves her boots right beside mine- I love that! 

I found myself in a hippy-chic kind of mood today and  spent the morning browsing my closet for just the right outfit to wear to work.

I love this image found on fashionista.com Wish I had that boho dress and  bright red shoes. It’s amazing what a fun and playful outfit can add to your day.

Add some fun to your day!

Someone once said,

Your wings already exist.

All you have to do is fly.”

 

 

I’m soaring through the rain today

Things that inspire me, today

So feminine and  fabulous in a boho kind of way. As you know I love boho.  This dress is drop dead gorgeous and I must confess that I put a bid on it. Not sure it will fit me  but I think I could hang it on my closet door and be inspired,  no words except love , love!

Vintage fashion is so classy and inspiring.

Once again I’m in love with this look, the crisp white accented by those dramatic black beads. Found this image at junebug weddings, fabulous!

Dita Von Teese's Vintage Fashion Secrets!

This little number from posh24 is so flirty and fun, let’s do lunch!

Drum roll, please, the most inspiring thing of the day is…

My little princess babies.  Ahhhh, okay I’m ready to start my day!

BTW the company, Stella & Dot, is launching a new jewelry line for little girls, it’s available April 26th.

 Won’t my baby girls look amazing in these? I can’t wait!

Oh and wish me luck on the bid for the dress.

Hippity Hoppity

Looks like the Easter Bunny is on her way… Can you believe that princess number 2 is six months old? Where does the time go? They grow up way too fast! It’s almost spring… enjoy it!

Love, love this hippy, hippy chic look . I love boho and I wear it often. My premier trunk show/open house is this weekend. I wish you all lived a little closer so you could join in on a little fashionable fun. Wish me luck….

plant the seed, boho girl

plant the seed poem - are you a boho girl?

The mantra above describes me to a certain extent especially the part about embracing my spirituality, aspiring to my dreams and living through my passions. The unmoveable, unshakeable, unstoppable part I’m still working on.

I’ve tried to live my life in a way that suits me. I’m becoming more environmentally conscious, even my decorating is going green. Living in a healthy way and eliminating stress by spending time in nature and with my lovies.

 

 

I’m trying to reuse and repurpose where I can, as in my latest decorating project of recycled magazine pages and vintage jewelry. 

I came across the mantra above in the eco-friendly Boho Magazine It supports the notion of living green and being true to one’s self-I love that. I need another magazine subscription like I need another hole in my head but this one is different, it inspires me to keep going and do better-I need that.

It’s so important right now to think globally but buy locally. We should embrace the world like never before but  remain loyal by supporting our neighbors.

 I’m digging deep on a friday with a little food for thought. Are you a boho girl or guy?

Seasons change and so does her world

img_2235It never fails, every year, as the spring thaw begins, a transformation takes place in her wardrobe and decor. She gets that itch that can’t be stopped which forces her to make changes  in subtle ways that don’t affect her bank account too dearly.  Her need for color and rejuvenation are satisfied with a scarf here and a pillow there. img_2530

Her decorating style could be summed up in one word…eclectic with a french country flair but her personal style is quite another story.

img_2512

Her wardrobe is simple but sometimes a bit funky. She loves the ease and flair of the sexy boho style clothing and accessories. Her style is at times too much for the conservative town in which she lives and this causes a bit of a stare.

She loves to collect things and then put them on display. Her tastes are eclectic but play well with each other. A Moroccan vase here a antique French cabinet there.

You never know what you may find at any turn. A sparkle here or

a little floral there.

Fun and flair are never far away. img_2511

 

peruvian-hat This girl doesn’t mind the numerous stares or occasional snicker. Dare to be different- it may change your life.

This commotion is worth all the trouble to just be herself. She will never worry what the neighbors might think. This girl throws caution to the wind and stays free with her style, which brings a breath of fresh air into her world.

Life is too short to ever conform; so open the windows and hang out in style; this is what life and fun are all about. Don’t worry about becoming the topic of conversation. You may just start a trend, that let’s you be you and me be me. It could be contagious; one can never be too sure about these things.

legs1So take a small step toward changing your world, just a little. “It won’t hurt too much”, is her promise. Display a few visible reminders around your space.

She who refuses to be molded by her conservative world, collects smooth rocks from the shoreline and paints little thoughts and messages to be read each day as she passes by. It’s simple but effective in changing her mindset.

Don’t be afraid to let the real you peek out, just one leg at a time. This girl will be here to cheer you on every day.  Spring time has spoken and rebirth is all around.  Now it’s your turn to shed your old skin and emerge all shiny and new. Come-on she knows you’re in there.

Happy Spring my friends…..
