Lately I feel like my style is moving more toward a bohemian-romantic look than a classic-trendy look, as I would’ve described my style in the past.
There’s something about flowy skirts, lace and florals with classic touches that are speaking to me right now and bringing together what I’d call my bohemian-romantic look.
I’m honestly glad I’m finding any kind of style at all that’s speaking to me because I am not such a happy-camper with my body right now. Try as I might to be body positive, some days are just easier than others for me to feel confident or put together. I know this is normal for women after they’ve had a baby — and really any woman can go through this at times. I do know that when I am excited about my clothes and I feel like I’m rocking some cool looks, that self-esteem is raised. So, for now I will use fashion to help boost my outlook on my body, and hopefully that will seep in and become solid no matter what I’m wearing!
Here are a few bohemian-romantic looks that I’m wearing now, or I have my eye on, that fit where I am right now.
Anything sweet and romantic feels good to me, so this blush-colored skirt with the lace details and pleats was a must-buy when I saw it. I have two blouses I usually wear it with (pictured below) and when it’s cold I layer on a black cardigan.
It’s probably obvious from the photo below that I have a think for pleated midi-length skirts, and I do! They’re really easy and versatile. I can pair them with tights and booties, flats or sandals. They always work year-round for me, and they look great dressed down with a T and a bomber jacket, or dressed up with a blouse and a blazer.
So, I also have this purple pleated skirt, which I often wear with this soft gray sweater with black lace inset on the sleeves.
Now, for a few items I have my eye on, I had to turn to the new plus-size line from The Loft. I’m so excited they are finally offering plus-size!
I love these brightly colored dresses, and while I often shy away from a shift dress, I know if I size up they often work better. As for wrap dresses, my trick is to always wear a slip underneath — this helps the dress skim over my body and not cling to it too much, which I prefer.
