Lesser-Spotted Bohemian Chic

2012-08-25 Not Dressed As Lamb 001

Bohemian chic is not a look I normally go for, but it’s often the most practical and obvious choice on hot summer days: cotton maxi skirt, sleeveless tank… job done. And trying to avoid the infamous Lady Diana backlit-skirt shot was not easy when taking these photos, but the best lighting for that evening was definitely the sun being behind me. It was sooo pretty filtering through the trees…. when we get hot days in Blighty, the countryside is really quite beautiful.

So the UK’s long weekend is long over (boo), but here’s to a great week to you all :))

    I always thought Diana had great legs, and failed to see the problem! Your outfit is lovely and relaxed, and the weather, as you say, is just fantastic!

    Wonderful how you manage to be elegant even in boho chic. Your hands are amazing – love your rings, bracelets, and that blue polish!

    I have great affection for the Lady Diana backlit skirt – I was so outraged by the condemnation heaped on her that, for many years, I eschewed slips altogether in solidarity. 🙂

    Boho chic has got to be one of my favorite style trends and this look is no exception! Love everything especially that super cute lightning bolt rig.

    You look so pretty! I lean towards boho when it's hot too. OK, I kind of lean towards it when it's cold as well, but not as much. 🙂

    I've never mastered bracelet stacking, though. I'm kind of jealous.
