Weekend expeditions to volcanic lakes, hippy villages and retro cafes are made for quirky retro looks. Today, I channeled my 1970s spirit child and went hippy in flared sleeves, statement stripes and this oh-so-stunning beaded Native American Necklace*.
Flared sleeve top: Boohoo
Stripe Skirt: Primark
Ankle Boots: ASOS

Living in the Southern Hemisphere can be a bizarre experience. Why? The majority of my fellow fashionistas dwell in the North and it all feels sort of topsy-turvy. As my Instagram news feed start to become more beach-y and I see an increase of 'oh my gosh sunshine' exclamations, all I can say is, 'welcome to my world!' ;)
Bohemian style is often associated with sunshine and Summer days, so it comes as no surprise that this trend is gonna be huge for the on-coming European Summer. Ladies: embrace flares in all their glory, mix and match with flows of florals, lashings of jewellery and everything fringed!
As I live in constant Summer (feel free to virtually slap me), boho vibes are always strong in my day to day look. So when Bo Boutique, an online jewellery mecca focusing on those wanderlust-filled boho vibes, popped into my radar, I was hooked. This Native American Beaded Necklace* is hand made with love and inspired by the designers love of travel and gypsy jewels. Worn over this black, flared-sleeve top, it makes a stunning statement that has me dreaming of Native American trails and long nights wandering under the stars.
I highlighted the pieces' vibrant mauve tones in my striped skirt, which is from the bargain palace that is
Primarni Primark. The ankle boots polished the look off to festival perfection. The result? Something truly bohemian, but with an air of understated glamour. #BlowingMyTrumpetMuch?
