Boho Babe.

By: Jen Shoop

Though I generally gravitate towards the feminine (ahem, BOWS!), there’s a stubborn little boho streak that will rear its head every now and then, introducing confusion in my wardrobe.  (Sometimes I look at my closet and am tres confused by the miscellany of styles represented.)  I felt compelled to pull out all my boho-leaning pieces after seeing Alicia of Cheetah Is the New Black in this stunning Ulla Johnson blouse ($414). [Aside: I’m actually planning to wear an Ulla Johnson dress for Easter.  LOVE that label.]

Cheetah Is the New Black 1

My favorite ways to nail the look (for less):

+This adorable OTS top from Loft ($59).  QUEL STATEMENT.  Love.  I like the idea of wearing it with white skinnies.

+This chic tunic dress ($68).  I think I like it in that unexpected yellow/beige color. Because, marigold.

+This voluminous top ($98).  Live for the eyelet detail.  Will we one day look back and think of these tops as the ruffly pirate tops in that episode of Seinfeld and laugh at ourselves?  Prolly.  But it’s a gamble I’m willing to make.

+This truly boho mixed-print blouse for a startlingly low $25!

+This sweet blush embroidered top ($90), which I must own for spring.

+Love this pom-pom-trimmed top in the cherry red ($98).

+I can’t say no to scalloped-trim anything ($75).

P.S. — NOT a top, and kinda budget-stretching, but how EPIC is this maxi from Alice + Olivia?!  BOHO GODDESS COMING THROUGH.  I am keeping my eye on this for a sale.  The only issue for me is that I’m so short, I know I’d need to get it hemmed and then you’ll make the color-blocked hem a little wonky/disproportionate.  Blech.  Someone normal-sized, please buy this.

P.P.S — Unrelated, but these $40 drop earrings are everything.  I own this exact pair but with a big faux pearl at the end and wear them to pretty much every wedding I’m invited to.  #Love.

P.P.P.S — This sweet bow-shouldered top ($39) should have been included in my round-up of bow-adorned tops!
