A Little Bit Boho

 I have been channelling a very clean lined sort of look of late. Mostly blazers, jeans and heels or smart shoes. But sometimes its nice to kick off the heels and go down a different road. Boho is huge for summer, as it has been for a few summers now, and with the shops filled with fringing, floaty tops  and enough 70's paraphernalia to make any hippy at heart feel at home, i couldn't help but pick a few pieces out.
What i love about boho is how casual it is. Its the perfect style for those days off when you're not really much in the mood to get dressed up, you know the ones, where you know you have to wear real clothes but secretly you just want to stay in your pj's all day and eat nutella straight out the jar (just me?).
 Its that comfy and casualness which always pulls me back to this style of dressing, and even when the rest of my wardrobe is perhaps taking a different route, there's no harm in throwing in a few easy pieces for those down days.  
This particular outfit is made up of some of my most favourite purchases. The boden lille lace up flats are by far the most comfy shoes for all day wear. I can not recommend these enough.. no wearing in process where you endure what can only be described as chinese water torture for the feet. Nope these were good from the first step and then only got better after a week of wear. They seem to have moulded to my feet making them fit like a glove; or slipper in this case. Their soft suede is like butter, perfect for running around like a crazy woman, ie me on any given day (look up crazy woman on google and you'll most likely find an image of me, frazzled)
The suede skirt is also a new addition. Its actually the one i went for out of my search for skirts post and it is a beaut! Soft to touch, easy to wear and so much potential. i am super dooper pleased with my new skirt addition. Its calling for a breton top and my birkies don't you think? I can see me reaching for this many many times over the summer and even into winter with tights and booties. Ahh the excitement of young love, there's nothing quite like it is there;)
