I never missed a single day without strolling on the beach during our vacation in Boracay Island. Do I sound naive if I tell you that it's one of my favorite past time? I did wake up early to watch the sunrise, feeling the cool morning breeze on my skin while walking on soft trails brought by low tide.
The thing is, the sun doesn't rise in the direction where you face the beach. It's the same thing we encountered in Bali. I hadn't realized it until we reached the shore at dawn. It's still a good view though.
Hype this look on lookbook.
I was up for something boho but since I was headed to the beach, I didn't think about wearing layered or long flowy skirt. Instead, I had these crochet shorts and vintage tribal top. Though I am sometimes into trends and have my own fashion inspirations, I still see to it that my choice of style doesn't only compliment my personality but as well as my physical attributes. I do aspire to wear long dresses, layered clothes and oversized hobo tops but for those people who have petite frame like mine, we might want to tone it down.
"Boho style is the epitome of relaxed, Cali-cool comfort." This eclectic flair is individual, free-spirited and romantic. For that gypsy boho look, one can layer contrasting patterns and textures and finish that by wearing a pile of accessories. To wear a bohemian style is to accessorize obsessively.
Meanwhile, my style is bohemian but not to that point of extreme as I wanted to tone it down. Matching crochet shorts with these tribal patterns and accessorizing with bangles and feather headband have made me attained my kind of boho look.
Crochet is a trend for the free-spirited gypsies and when mixed with different prints and right accessories, one could achieve an effortlessly unique boho look.
Aren't these elephants so cute? I have plenty of them in my luggage. Of course not the real ones, silly. I have another top with elephant prints which I will be posting soon. Elephant-lover here. ;D
What I wore: thrifted tribal top| crochet shorts from Must Haves| Bench Hat| bangles from Landmark
PS. I already start to fancy vintage pieces and I'm thinking about posting some of my latest finds and maybe make a list of thrift-shopping do and don'ts. Yes? :D
