{a rather pathetic attempt at} Boho

Do you guys have a certain style you LOVE... but just cannot execute?! For me, it's boho. I LOVE the boho vibe, I love the boho style... but I've really got no boho in me. Which is sad. I wish I could dress all cute and boho or decorate our place in that style... but I just don't got it. So, this is my little attempt at a semi-boho outfit. Aka the waves, headband, and feather necklace. LOL. 
BY THE WAY this is my most favoritest v-neck shirt I've ever had. It's from Forever21 and it's like $5 in their basics section, and they have other colors.
You need to get one.
headband: Don't remember... I got it in a two-pack from like Shopko or something
vest: c/o Style Says Shop
v-neck: Forever21 
feather necklace: Mourning Dove Jewelry
red pendant: Wet Seal (similar)
skirt: Ebay (similar)
sandals: Rue21? I think...

Have a happy weekend, everyone!

How cute you look! I love the headband on you and those necklaces are beautiful! You paired everything pretty well with a good mix to make it your own style.
Have a beautiful day Rachel,

boho is my favorite style, where i struggle is finding a way to make it more conducive to office wear.
basically if i could i would shop at free people all day errr day.
i think the key to boho is to having something a little messy, more relaxed, maybe?
channel a little bit of this? http://knwphotography.blogspot.com/2013/06/rings-and-more.html

love ya.

I think you can totally pull off the boho look. I really like that look too!

Natasha Atkerson said...

Super cute Boho look!
I actually find myself swinging towards the boho look frequently. I guess vintage is my "wishlist style" if you will! I always love how other people dress in vintage clothes, it's just not for me! It never looks right!
As for the F21 shirts-Oh yes! Gotta love those cheap shirts! I have about three, yellow, red and mustard yellow! I love how nicely they fit too!

I don't think I could pull off boho either. HOnestly, I think it's the hair. That super long, loose hairstyle always seems like a key part of the boho look to me, and I know I'll never have long hair. My younger sister's style is totally boho, we typically look like opposites when we get dressed up.

Lauren ONeill said...

I didn't think I could pull it off either until I was told on one of my blog posts that I look very "boho chic." I'll take it!

You pulled it off great! I feel the same way about boho, shabby chic, and every cute style out there. I managed to pull off color blocking, but that's about it. You look adorable, though! :)
