If you are new around these parts, you may have missed the first few diversity chic posts. Check out our take on the Pantone color of the year here and leopard print here. This month’s challenge was a little more….challenging. Bohemian Chic.

Bohemian Chic is NOT a trend that comes naturally to me. I love it on other people but I’m more of an edgy kind of gal – flowy earthtones are just not part of my brand. So when we decided on Bohemian Chic for our next Diversity Chic theme I was instantly worried. After searching my closet high and low, I realized my kimono, even though it’s neon, could totally be bohemian chic!
I paired my kimono with a twisted knit skirt I scored at Nordstrom Rack because a black maxi would’ve been just a little TOO flowy for me. Then I rocked my caged lace up booties since they kind of remind me of Bohemian sandals. Confession: I meant to wear my black wool hat but I forgot because I’m kind of a crazy person right now (life update coming next week). I added one of my favorite Bauble Bar statement necklaces to tie it all together because I can’t say no to a good statement necklace.
Kimono: Online boutique I can’t remember the name of ($35; similar; similar) | Camisole: Forever 21 ($2; exact) | Skirt: Nordstrom Rack ($25; pink version; similar) | Shoes: Charlotte Russe ($25; similar; similar) | Necklace: Bauble Bar ($25; exact) | Flash tattoos: Joann ($5 for a sheet of about 15; similar)
One of the best parts about fashion is you can have fun with trends while still maintaining your own personal sense of style. I love how we all look a little bohemian but we didn’t completely lose our personal style – I’m wearing black and neon, Stephanie is working the casual chic, Sevi looks professional but still fun and Jordan is killing the work-appropriate attire.
