boho summer

Hello loves!

With fall fashion sneaking back up on us and making its yearly appearance, I can’t help but notice all the plaid and boots popping up everywhere. Although my closet mostly consists of summer apparel (because, let’s face it.. I am definitely a California girl),  there is something special about cozy knit sweaters and all the fall accessories that have a place in my heart. Hey, I’m all for the pumpkin spice lattes (#basic), and booties, and scarves and… okay I think you get the point.

However, I will use every opportune time to wear my boho dresses from Shop Bella Blu  before the weather forces me to put them away. Here are a few staples that can easily be dressed up/down. Throw a oversized plaid shirt on top and you have successfully transitioned to fall! 🙂

The lace detailing on this dress are my favorite part, and put a whole new spin on LBD. I’ve definitely already paired both a plaid and a denim vest over it, but sometimes simple is best.

My favorite dress out of them all is this neutral gray fringe back dress. It just screams me with the detail in the back and the color that just goes with everything. It’s so versatile and I am in loooooove with the fringey back!

All dresses were paired with my favorite shoes of the summer which was less than $35 which you can find here. The lace-up shoe trend seems to be everywhere I turn! But I’m sure we are all wondering..where have they been all our lives?! 🙂

Til next time..

Xoxo,

Hello my loves,

I’m so excited to share today’s post with you all! With summer rolling around and nothing but time on your hands (time, who has that these days?), I just know you are looking for a fun diy to inspire those creative juices in you! I had the privilege of being joined by one of my friends to be in this post and photos together. We had seen multiple types of flower crowns that seem to be all the rage right now, and who would blame anyone when they are just insanely cute?! Well, we decided that we should make some ourselves!

My friend is so great at putting things like this together without needing any instructions. We started out with lots and lots of flowers. I suppose you could almost say there was a little garden growing inside where we were creating.

The vines from the eucalyptus were what served as our “crown,” if you would like to call it that. We used crafting wire to fixate the flowers into place. I couldn’t be happier with the final product! Once placing the crown on your head, you can also push some extra flowers in to cover all the places that seem a bit empty or to be missing some flowers.

I suppose if you’re not living in the big city, you don’t have an excuse to prance around town wearing these brightly colored accessories. Nevertheless, we flaunted these masterpieces of ours as we went around town exploring. Don’t you worry, we did get a few questioning stares and looks.

I mean, how else would I have found a magical windy park in a scorching hot city? Or better yet, a tree that is covered in eyes? “Big Brother is Watching You.” 😉

Of course, I don’t believe there is such a thing as having too much fun, so fun is what was had.

As always, I had a wonderful day and I hope you enjoyed coming along on this adventure with me!

Until next time…

Xoxo,

Lena
