The word “boho” is more than a little overused in fashion these days. But there’s a reason for its persistent appeal. If you didn’t know, boho is short for bohemian. While its exact definition has varied greatly over the years, its association with creativity, flowing comfortable fabric, and a general disregard for mainstream fashion has remained constant. For me, I just like how it makes me feel like a forest nymph.
This dress is particularly ethereal. While it’s not exactly workwear, even in the jeans-as-formalwear tech scene, it’s perfect for a sunny weekend garden party and picnic. I’ve only worn it a few times so far, but I can see tons of potential for new styling opportunities. Picture it with a woven leather belt looped around the waist or perhaps as a beach cover-up.
I found this at our favorite $5 tent at the Treasure Island Flea Market and I have to admit I didn’t immediately see its potential. I was drawn to the length and beautiful blush color, but hesitant because of how sheer it is. With thrifting, we usually recommend against buying something unless you know how you’re going to style it. But sometimes, when a piece calls to you, you just have to take the leap and figure out the rest later.
