I was supposedly going to wear this boho sheer top as a swimsuit cover-up only. Originally, I was wearing cut-out midriff and floral skorts for an edgy-romantic look but it seemed plain and usual. My dreamcatcher necklace didn't look too bold against the black cloth so I figured to go boho and wear this top. Nothing went wrong as it went smoothly with my skorts and sandals.

It's amazing how this one statement piece changed my entire look into a totally different style- from an edgy/sweet to a calm boho look. Don't forget to comment and hype this look here!

Marigold

I'm actually a crammer sometimes, rummaging through my closet to find whatever pieces that may work. Though I love to plan and prepare my outfits, I sometimes end up having less time and perhaps, indecision. My better resolution then is to use clothes with intricate details as there is less or no need for accessorizing. These could be tops or dresses with bold prints, sheer panels or extraordinary beadwork. I spare myself the stress from last minute preparation because these staple pieces work best when worn in simplicity.

This top, for example, the one I wore during my cousin's wedding, is an attention catcher because of its cut-out details. It's one of favorites because I can pair it up with simple bottoms without looking ordinary. I was good to go after finding a nice floral skirt and plain black flats.

Don't you know this skirt was thrifted? I was going to buy a brand new one during the Supersale bazaar last year. Good thing I didn't because few days after, Adly and I found a similar item in a vintage shop. I was one lucky girl, thinking that the skirt is really for me. Haven't you experienced not buying the item you just loved at first impulse and then seeing it again on sale just few days after?!

Last hooray to my black frizzy hair. I just had my hair dyed and experienced the trending hair blowout. It's incredibly good. It's an awesome treatment because it smooths the hair and restores its natural glow and volume. Super nice!

Bohemian

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.

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
