outfit details:  dress - swell // hat - thatch vintage // boots - chicwish // bag - gypsy warrior // necklace - love + leather // turquoise thunderbird cuff - chaosinretrospect // large thunderbird cuff - bohemian dreams // coin bracelet - shop sparrow // onyx cuff ring - strong medicine studio


This outfit was inspired by this little black number from Swell.  There a million and one ways to style up a simple black dress, which is what makes them a great staple for your closet.  I'm excited to have a long sleeve one for this winter.  It will be so cute with thick leggings, knee high socks, boots and a jacket.  (already planning...)

I feel like Ive been processing a whole lot during this Mercury Retrograde.  Alot of going within.  Seeing what Ive been shedding over the past few months.  Thinking and dreaming about the future.  Feeling lots of wonderful highs, and lows.  Ive been shifting and changing things on the homefront alot to make our space feel more content and at ease.  De-cluttering, which feels like it might take a lifetime.  But one little corner of life at a time, its happening.  And it feels so good each step of the way. 

I had a major crash the day or so after my magazine was released.  I think from the build up for months before the release, and then the excitement of the release, it finally all came crashing down.  But I spent the night in the tub, completely feeling all that was coming forward within, and I felt so much better by the next morning.  I didn't fight the feeling, or get angry at myself for feeling blah when I should of been feeling ecstatic.  I just allowed.  This can sometimes be such a hard thing to do. 

This eclipse season has brought alot of changes.  Some really good ones too.  Some new perspectives.  New surges in relationship (good and bad).  Some getting to the core of things.  And soon, we get yet another partial eclipse.  These times remind me of the A.A. saying 'It works if you work and it won't if you don't.  It truly is a true statement, and a wonderful mantra.

outfit details:  shirt - f21 // boyfriend jeans - ae // booties - blowfish shoes // hat c/o wild feathers vintage // necklace - rossio roos // feather & turquoise ring - arrok jewelry // copper cuff - silk bone jewels


I've been admiring boyfriend jeans from afar for quite a long time, so I finally snagged a pair when AE had a major jean sale.  I must say they are quite comfortable.  But they get saggy super fast, and don't do wonders for your ass... ;)  It's always nice to have a pair of really comfy jeans in your closet though.  I think they will get alot of wear this winter with some oversized sweaters. 

I am getting so excited about this fall weather that has arrived.  Getting dressed in fall is my absolute favorite.  It has been so nice outside the past week or so.  Weve been going out to my parents house almost everyday this month, and each time I go I collect fall colored leaves off the ground from the trees out there.  It's so gorgeous out there this time of year.  It always feels more magical in the fall and spring. 

I just got my new computer up and running yesterday, so things have been a bit slow over here.  I'm working on getting my photos and folders all sorted out from my old computer.  We got everything transferred onto an external hard drive just in time.  Literally the next day my computer died completely.  I'm not sure what I would do if I lost all my photos again.  Several years ago I made a stupid mistake and accidentally deleted over 3,000 photos, which included most of the photos I had of my mom.  That just about crushed me.  We tried all sorts of recovery programs and nothing worked.  I'm just glad that didn't happen again!

I'm so excited b/c my bundle of magazines I ordered for family and giveaways should be on my doorstep tomorrow!!!  Don't forget to go enter the giveaway we have going on the boho blog and instagram

Hello monday!  Ive been tackling a forever long to-do list, praying my computer won't crash before I get the new one up and running, and also feeling a wave of fresh energy wash over me.  I don't have much time to put into today's post, so I'm just going to leave with a super cute little number from one of my favorite designers, Junim LA.  Can't wait to share a whole spread on them in the upcoming Bohemian Collective magazine!!!  16 days away from the release, eeek!!! 

High five to waking up to a new day and feeling a renewed sense of self.  *exhale*
