Bohemian Mood

From time to time I need to express the Bohemian attitude and vibes. And this I do through what I decide to wear.
The Bohemian style as we know it and often referred to as boho or boho chic became very popular in ‘60’s and ‘70’s.
The aim being to be and live free, away from inhibitions set by society. This you could see in the flowing designs with the risky mix of colors and fabric.
Bohemian roots of course started even earlier in the late part of the 19th and early 20th century. The true Bohemian often lived an unconventional artistic life.
The original Bohemians were in fact those coming from Central Europe, refugees or gypsy. The French word for gypsy is Bohémien. The high society and aristocratic of Europe at the time often choose the life style and it became known as High Bohemia. What a heavenly thought to hangout in a opium scented cafe in say Prague, Paris or Budapest with its slightly shabby looking interior and discuss endlessly over a book or painting. After all time is not an issue, tomorrow I do not have any engagements other than a lunch appointment.

As for me I will now enjoy the moment, standing outside and feeling very free in my printed maxi dress and favorite pom pom wedge espadrilles. Oh and denim jacket to give me that full Bohemian feel. It’s denim patchwork or embroided jackets that really sets the note. To be really Bohemian the printed maxi dresses needs to have either a paisley or floral, flowing geometric theme. And don’t forget to wear your most extravagant necklace and earrings. Me being on these days that kind of ruffled dressed girl who feels free, nomadic, spirited and alive. Non-Bourgeois.

Wearing Zoe Karssen embroidered cheetah denim jacket & Devotion dress  via  Cult Gaia Ark large bamboo clutch this is  large version and if you not carrier around use it as a home decoration. The nicest about this popular bag is that it looks equally good with any style. When I think boho look and summer I instantly picture Castañer’s ‘Carina’ espadrilles my are decorated with pom-pom but simpler version as selected are great choice. In the early 70s, the brand partnership with Yves Saint Laurent,  to make collection off a wedge espadrilles. Need I say more so bohemian. Round-frame metal sunglasses finish the mood there are so many version Ray Ban & Sunday Somewhere Raine round-frame silver toned pairs one of my favorites.

I have selected the items I am wearing in this post with the links.
