My Boho Beach Style ft. Boohoo

Boho beach style is made for my balmy, tropical lifestyle. Living smack bang between the Equator and the Tropic of Capricorn, it doesn't often get below 20°C, so fun, light layers and bright bikinis are a must!

Today I've teamed up with Boohoo* to show you a boho beach style that can take you straight from the balmy ocean, to lunch, to seaside shopping and beyond.

All from Boohoo*

Although I live two streets away from the beach (permission to virtually slap me granted), Jake and I often enjoy spending our weekends road tripping in search of that perfect spot of sand, hidden bay, or palm-fringed shore. 

For this shoot, we took one of our short and fave mini road trips up to the tropical haven of Port Douglas. The hour stretch of road between Cairns and Port Douglas, called The Captain Cook Highway, is absolutely laden with serene, sandy beaches. Best of all, these beaches are almost always empty.

You're probably thinking, 'who in their right sweaty mind wears a choker and belt to the beach?' But before you brand me nuttier than that little squirrel off Ice Age, hear me out.

Tropical beach hopping calls for an outfit that is more than just a bikini. Often, Jake and I will drop by to a cafe to enjoy a nice lunch, or explore rain forest tracks. Would you want to stare at some chick in a bikini whilst tucking into your avo toast? Nope, didn't think so!

My boho beach style is all about versatility. This quirky, scallop edge bikini is made for my pear shape figure when I dare to bare all. The layered, scalloped top is like some kind of magical, instant boob job. 

What is most versatile of all, is this rose print maxi kimono. It can be worn open as a cheeky beach coverup, or the ties can be wrapped round and worn at the back to create an on-trend, slit maxi dress. Add a lace up choker and Western buckle belt, and it becomes an outfit worthy of a seat in some beach-side Hipster cafe.

To rock the all-day boho beach style yourself, follow my simple equation:

Killer bikini + closed coverup + accessories to layer + sandles=

Jokes aside, get your boho beach style together and go off on a beach adventure!

  1. Aw I love this outfit and your photos have got me dreaming of a beach holiday! I love that this look is so versatile and as you say it is easy to wear on the beach but add a few accessories and it's perfect for a nice lunch somewhere as well :) I should really check Boohoo out more as they seem to have some great pieces but I always forget to check there! x

  19. Dear Rachel,
    how wonderful you and Jake explore your region in that way and you don't only use the beach in your neighbourhood!
    I understand why you dress in this way on the beach and your boho beach style suits you fantastic. I agree, a bikini is not appropriate for visiting a cafe.
    Enjoy further the country where you live now!

  28. Gosh, I wish some of the young ones where I live have common sense like you, Rachel. I despise Summer months because you see some in ill-fitting bikinis (make that veryyyyy ill-fitting) wandering into stores buying groceries and shopping like bikini is their normal day to day outfits. I think there's a place and time for everything and wearing a bikini to shop groceries, to restaurants are a little disrespectful.

  47. Rach,
    You sure do look amazing. I love this fabulous fashion you are showing us. I totally need the beach, sun, and water. You go on a lot of traveling adventures, I sure do need that in my life. There isn't a beach close to me though. I am loving those sandals too by the way.

  48. First of all, you look so amazing! I love your hair up in a top knot like that. I adore Boohoo and I didn't even realize that they have a swim section. I'm hopping over there now!

  49. I am loving your boho beach looks babe! I didn't realize Boohoo had such a great selection. The scalloped bikini definitely caught my eye as did the rose print kimono. You're so lucky to live so close to all those beaches to be able to show off such great styles!!

  50. I love me some Blake Lively! I love that this truly is such a transitional piece for the beach! I'm planning an up coming trip and I will definitely have to check this one out! Such a stunning piece. I grew up on the beach as well but now I'm about 3 hours from the beach and I'm having withdrawals! Oh and your post made me literally LOL so hats off to you for that!
