I realized something over the weekend: I may like floral patterns or flowy pieces but I am no flower child. I watched in amazement at all of the women this weekend who effortlessly pulled off boho chic and festival style. There was so much style in one small concentrated area I felt as if I was inside of a living magazine. It was almost as if they all called each other to confirm this year’s trends. I congratulate every women who can effortless pull of that type of style. I think that’s the key with boho style — it has to look effortless. When I don’t feel 100% with a style or an outfit, I can feel the effort I keep putting into to make an outfit work. By the end of getting dressed, it just looks like effort and I’m not sure that boho is the style that you want to look forced.
All that to say, I’ve also realized that in the sea of style labels I’m actually quite happy to blur most lines. I have no idea what you would even call this style today but I like to call it happy. How can you not be happy when you are wearing a skirt with a million colored flowers?
Oh! One more thing: I met and creeped out a celebrity this weekend. How could I forget that? I met Ashley Madekwe from Revenge and this was the first and only thing I said to her:
“Oh my God — I loved you in Revenge! You were such a b-word in that show.”
Needless to say, we are now best friends and she loves my personality, cool girl vibe and fine communication skills.
