Ever since I was in high school, I’ve been a Vans and Converse type of girl when it comes to sneakers. I wouldn’t say that’s changed that much, but I’ve adopted more brands into my sneaker collection. One such brand is PUMA, which can be found at Famous Footwear. This season, they created Vikky Platform Sneakers, which I am obsessed with. What better way to incorporate the season’s hottest shoe trend- the platform- into a sneaker? I’m in love. Plus the platform means extra padding so you can wear these babies all day long.
The big day is here! It’s Amazon Prime Day 2017! This is the first year I am an Amazon Prime member, and I love it. I previously thought, why pay a yearly fee to have access to random deals that I could probably do without? Well, it’s so much more than that. I use Amazon for random essentials throughout the year that I don’t want to make an extra (and more expensive) trip to Target for. These are things like a blow-up swan floatie for Palm Springs, bathing suits that I didn’t want to pay a million dollars for, desk accessories like my laptop stand, tech accessories like my portable charger, or even books that have been on my book list forever. To me, Amazon is the perfect place to buy all of these random essentials at a great price without having to take a trip to the store.
I haven’t posted too much inside my house since I’ve moved to Redondo Beach, but I love it inside my little bungalow. I usually spend the mornings making coffee and playing with my kitty, Penny, before heading to work for the day. On weekends, if I am not being a weekend warrior (which I usually am), I love to make breakfast at home. For me, my home is my sanctuary. I can wear whatever I want to wear and be whoever I want to be- not that I am not myself outside my home… But I can sing loud and dance and wear no pants, etc. at home. One thing I do always wear inside is a pair of slippers. My last pair of slippers were from Christmas from Nordstrom Rack and had no soles or cushion left in them. Needless to say, I needed an upgrade. Something with harder soles that I could walk around and be comfortable in. When I found T&N Collection, they had just what I was looking for- comfortable slippers that I can wear inside and outside!
With temperatures in the 80’s in LA these past few days, I’ve officially ditched my winter shoes for something lighter! I love sandals of all kinds this spring, from high-heeled to wedges. (Are wedges considered sandals?!) Either way, sandals and wedges are a way to make any look spring-y. They can even make jeans or a long-sleeve dress in season! I recently got one of my favorite sandals from Shoes of Prey, a really cool brand that lets you design your own pair of shoes. I’ve been wearing them almost every day to work, they are so comfortable. Keep reading to find out the other sandals I chose for spring!
If there are two trends to stay on top of this spring, I would have to say they are hats and floral print. At least if you dress somewhat bohemian like I do. I love floral for spring (actually all year round)… but the print definitely makes a huge comeback around the spring time. I love mixing the print with wide brim hats, which are also huge this spring. Combining the two trends gives you a really effortless, relaxed bohemian vibe.
If there’s one item I could wear for the rest of the spring and summer season, it would be a wrap dress. They are so easy to wear, just throw one on and boom you’ve got an entire outfit. Not only that, but also they are forgiving and flattering for all body shapes and sizes. For festival season, I’ll give you all a spoiler of one of my outfits, it’s a wrap dress! (lol) I may or may not be wearing it over some shorts and a bralette… Either way, wrap dresses come in all different patterns and fabrics and they are a great option for a flattering spring look.
When I started my blog, I named it “Bohemian” by the Bay for the definition of the word: a person who has informal and unconventional social habits, especially an artist or writer. I still abide by it’s meaning and I want my blog to be a source of inspiration where people feel like they can be inspired by my looks, yes, but I also want people to be inspired to create their own looks that are just as unconventional, just as unique, and just as YOU. I want people to feel welcome here, and I want to encourage everyone to be their most authentic self. I want people to feel like they too can be anyone they wish or create anything they want to be. YOU ARE AUTHENTICALLY YOU.
