Aussie Curves - Boho

I have not been sharing many blog posts lately. I have had a cranky Little Man to tend to. At 3 months old he seems to be teething. My placid chilled out boy had turning into a grizzly bear that chews madly on his fist.
He also takes great objection to being put down. SIGH...

I spent all of last week cooped up in the house as I did not want to spend money and it is so time consuming to go out now days. Finally I decided I needed to get out of the house so I arranged to pop down to the shops for a coffee with my Sister.

It was nice to put something on that was not just lounge pants. No foundation though, as my skin was looking rather good, so I just chucked on mascara,blush,  undereye concealer and some gloss.

Necklace & Bracelets - Very old! I *think* Diva & Equip

The weather has suddenly turned miserable and I am having to think about what on earth I am going to wear during winter. This outfit was one I was rather pleased with and it may get a few outings if this weather keeps up. To me boho means shades of browns, chunky knits, leather and beaded necklaces. It can also mean fun, colourful fabrics, but for today I kept it very simple.

I have been learning how to braid so I experimented with this lovely braided hairdo. I was rather pleased, but sadly it loosened up as I was shopping and fell out. More practicing is needed I think. I have been putting my Daughter's hair in braids. We have always had a huge amount of trouble getting her to let me do her hair,with Abbie preferring to channel her own inner boho, and let her curly hair be wild and free. Until, that is, my Mum had a stroke of genius. She told her that when her hair wasn't done she looked like the trolls in Frozen, but when it was done she looked like Queen Elsa (Abbie's favourite character). Sure enough, she thought on this for a moment, then came to be with a brush and a hair tie. Since then she has happily had her hair braided each day so she can be like a Queen.

I confess, I sometimes worry bout the messages I send my daughter regarding beauty. I don't want her to think beauty requires make up or clothing. Yet, I also want her to look nice when we go out. It is a dilema at times, however I think in this instance I am relieved she now lets me brush her hair and get dressed without an argument.

What does Boho look like to you?


  1. I love this outfit & I love your braided hair do!
    sometimes I think you just do what you have to do in order to get young children to cooperate, I don't think you are sending a bad message :)

  2. This is what the "boho" character on a cool t.v. show would wear -- this looks so effortless and chic.

  3. Love this, also jealous of your awesome hair
