Go Boho Chic!

Summer is the time I like to rock one of my favorite fashion trends, Boho Chic. It’s always fun to add some fab hippie-inspired pieces to into your existing wardrobe. To get the right look, you need to have a few essential pieces. Here are my picks to create a fab head-to-toe boho style.

Theodora & Callum Purple Multi Ikat Tie All Scarf, $175
A great oversized scarf is a summer essential. Use it as a sarong, a dress, a shawl…the possibilities are endless. This print is fun and I love the colors! Watch this video on how to tie it to make a dress.

Rebecca Minkoff Eyelet Moonstruck Hobo, $550
Rebecca Minkoff is known for her amazing handbag collection-this hobo has the perfect laid-back style and great details. It’s also an ideal size to carry all of your summer must-haves in. The neutral shade will work into fall as well.

Club Monaco Pachacuti Fair Trade Hat, $119.50
A great straw hat not only protects you from the sun but also looks uber-stylish. To take your boho look to another level, put hair in a side fishtail braid first, and you are good to go!

Pedro Garcia Agatha Suede Cutout Clog Wedge, $475
A chunky wedge is a retro nod to the 70’s that is surprisingly wearable. Pair these suede sandal-clogs with cut-off denim shorts, a maxi dress or your favorite jeans.

Nombre Maxi Dress, $205
This neutral maxi has a drawstring waist and a flattering neckline with tribal print detail. I love the pockets and easy to wear style!

Sheila Fajil Druzy Chandelier Earrings, $33
These earrings look luxe but are a steal at $33! Dress them up or down this summer for a glam hippie look. Bonus: They are super light-weight and available in white or turquoise.

D Pagano Designs Bronze Skull and Snake Fuchsia Bracelet, $165
The easiest way to rock the boho trend is with some fun accessories like these amazing beaded charm bracelets. Tip: try stacking them with bracelets you already own.

1. J Brand 899 Niko in Bright Royal, $255
No denim collection would be complete without a little J Brand love! Started in 2004 with a vision to create a jean with so perfect a fit it followed the contours of one’s body the brand became an overnight success after begin sold exclusively in LA at Ron Herman’s Melrose Jean Bar. The 899 Niko in bright royal is their new mid-rise skinny and we just love the racing stripe detail—perfect if you want to get in on the colorblock trend!

2. rag & bone Khaki Tuxedo Skinny, $198
One of our favorite pant looks is the tuxedo stripe (it gives the illusion of a thinner leg!). These jeans not only look amazing on but are extremely comfortable and made of cotton, tencel and spandex stretch twill. Über stylish rag & bone was founded in 2002 by Marcus Wainwright and David Neville, both of whom had no formal fashion training— sure fooled us! We are huge fans of the brand and these jeans will certainly make a great addition to your wardrobe!

Joe’s Jeans “The Skinny” comes in 55 fabulous colors— so you can count on them having your favorite shade! Sitting just above the hips, The Skinny has a 12″ leg opening and boasts a 2% elastin concentration for comfort. The Fiery Red is bold and bright and a perfect color for all skin tones. Rock them during the day with your favorite striped flats and spring sweater or at night with a slinky top and pumps! Joe’s Jeans are celeb favorite, spotted on A-listers like Natalie Portman, Halle Berry and Angelina Jolie.

The Hottest Neutral Wedge Sandals this Season

By Melissa Meyers

I’m seeing wedges everywhere these days; there are so many chic choices!  If you’re going to add one wedge sandal to your wardrobe this summer, then why not add a neutral pair you can wear with everything? Check out six of my favorites to choose from whatever your budget.

Alexander Wang Kasia Whipstitch Wedge
I spotted (and splurged on) these when I saw them at Edit Boutique.  They are the perfect dress up or dress down wedges and super chic—love the details. I recently paired them with a pale pink Ramy Brook dress and then the next day with jeans and a tee shirt.
