4 DRAMATIC SPRING TRENDS UNDER 40

Hello lovely! 

Today, I am bringing you affordable, chic, and trendy pieces for this season. Everything on my list of must haves is under $40! After going over the top designer runway shows, I have found the trends I know you will be obsessed with as soon as you see on someone else. But you don't have to wait till someone else is rocking these threads, because you were here first! I want you to know that these sites are style blogger approved and I found them through my favorite bloggers on Instagram. These are the sites they personally shop and I'm bringing them to you. You don't have to go broke to look fab!


RUNWAY: MICHAEL KORS SPRING 2017 FASHION SHOW
SHOP: SHEIN
STYLE INFLUENCER: @WHATCOURTWORE

This look is seriously making me ask myself, "Why wouldn't you want everyone to see you coming from a mile away?!" I know that to some this top may be a little much, but honey you have to remember...If you're gonna live with meaning, GO ALL OUT! I mean we can only play it safe for so long.
RUNWAY: AG JEANS SPRING COLLECTION
SHOP: ASOS (ON SALE $23)
STYLE INFLUENCER: @MISSMARYPOWERS

Yassss!! More ways to tell em' that you don't give a QUACK! You can opt for a dramatic raw hem jean like the left one or you can choose an easy to wear option. I am obsessed with this denim trend because I live in jeans. That's literally all I wear, so the more ways to funk them up, the better! Speaking of jeans, Mary (top left) is the JEAN QUEEN on Instagram, always wearing the chicest styles but on a budget. Check her out!

RUNWAY: FENDI SPRING 2017 FASHION SHOW
SHOP: H&M
STYLE INFLUENCER: @LAURENEVASHERIFF



I have to be honest with you...I'm not much for pink, which makes this soft rosy color a perfect option for me. I can add a little femininity into my typical black/white mix without feeling like I have dived into Lisa Vanderpump's closet. Although, I would be more than willing to trade shoe collections with her!



RUNWAY: KENZO SPRING 2017 FASHION SHOW
SHOP: FREE PEOPLE
STYLE INFLUENCER: @BOYMOMINJEANS

Bring out your metals! I think most of us are accustomed to tucking our metallic clothing into the deepest holes within our closet until we are ready to take them out into the night life. I'm here to tell you that it's okay to let them see the light this season! An easy to wear tip for this trend is using this material as an accent underneath a light jacket like the photo on the left. I love the subtle yet obvious way that Jennifer (top right) wore this Free People top. 

The trends this season are full of drama everywhere! Off-the-shoulder, dramatic sleeves, cool silhouettes, frayed hems. Don't be afraid to go for it because we only have this moment in time. Yes, while ten years from now, you might actually look at your pictures and curse these jeans, right now it might make you happy to wear them on repeat and you are meant to be happy. YOU ARE MEANT TO BE HAPPY. BE HAPPY. 

Thanks for stopping by :) You make me happy!

SIMPLE SPRING STREET STYLE


TOP: OLD NAVY; JEANS: EXPRESS; SHOES: SHOEDAZZLE; PURSE: MARC JACOBS (SIMILAR HERE--UNDER 20); GLASSES: EYEBUYDIRECT



Happy Spring! Who needs to layer when we can just take it all off!? This look is everything I stand for right now. Light, light, light. If you've been keeping up with my feed on Instagram, you know that I am the queen of monotonous black and white. I've been thinking a lot about how I want to add some color to my wardrobe, but God knows that will be an uphill battle! Who knew making fashion decisions could make you feel like you're choosing between life and death?!?! A bit dramatic don't you think?!

I'm in the middle of this style transition and this is the very first look to ease into the color stage. Yes, I'm treating my "monotonism" like a hairstylist treats hair color, but like I always say, "Life is short. Do what you want!" (There used to be a saying for this guys...remember YOLO? It still stands even if it's awkward to throw into conversation now. You're welcome. Now you'll be fighting the urge to shout YOLO at your friends. Muahahahaa.)

My favorite thing about this look has got to be these shoes that I found on sale at Shoedazzle! If you're like me and make it a priority to save money when shopping, then you NEED to check them out now! I bought these for under $20 and they look pretty expensive walking down the street. I am a killer for expensive looking stuff but spending almost nothing...It's kind of an addiction really.

I have listed these outfit details for your shopping convenience under the first pic. Before you get to it, please don't forget that the most important changes happen on the inside first! Now, get to it babe!

Comment below the style changes you are undergoing this Spring...I'm super curious!

BOHO IN THE WINTER + HIPPIE RAMBLES

PHOTOGRAPHY BY MIKAYLA HART

And so we begin again.

It's a new chapter for us all. May our travels this year be covered in sunlight and hope. For me, this year is all about letting all the armor fall and basking in the wind. It's about me letting myself be guided through the rivers until I get to the ocean. If the ocean is my destination, then why resist and make the journey more painful than it should be? I've already decided that the ocean is ultimately where I will be, so I'm going to let myself arrive there in peace.

This look is inspired by this idea of letting sunshine into my travels. No matter the weather, you can choose light and love. This top was a Christmas present from my brother-in-law and I do have to say that he has great taste. He deserves a kudos for this one! This has become my favorite top in my closet. It's just soooooo easy to wear...and if  you know me, I seek comfort in my fashion endeavors!

I'm trying to keep this post short and sweet. If you haven't noticed in my previous posts, I have writing ADD. I know I have it, because I diagnosed myself a week ago! The symptoms have been there for a while, but I finally put two and two together. See, I'm rambling again... :)

Anyway, I wish you all the best for this year! Cheers to another chapter to build on!

VOODOO FEST: WHERE THE FREAKS COME OUT TO PLAY



 Can I get your attention please?! Let me just start off by saying...I'm coming clean. I don't mean to offend anyone but I am one of these so called "FREAKS." This whole past month I was plotting what I was going to wear to Voodoo Fest, and as usual, I put stuff together a day before the trip. I try to be more responsible by packing earlier...and it never works. I'm used to it and it's all good. No hard feelings toward myself here!

Before I went on this little enlightening journey in Nola, I had no idea what to expect. I could have never imagined the sensory overload that I experienced down there. I could not have asked for anything better. It was pure magic and I can honestly say that my life has changed because of it. I was trying to describe this feeling to my husband earlier, but I couldn't come across the right words. Maybe I will try explaining it to you...This week has been about me trying to gather myself after this event and picking back up where I left off before going to Nola.

You're about to find out some stuff about me right here...I think I was a hippie in a past life.

If you have been following me on Instagram and have noticed that I haven't all the way been there with my posts this week, it's because something has changed inside my little caged up heart. It has taken me four days to come out of whatever weird haze my mind has been on this past weekend. I have an underlying suspicion that being around a huge crowd of people has given me this weird air of wanting to love thy neighbor harder than I normally do. Maybe it's just the fall giving season that's hitting me right in the feels. I'm not sure why I'm writing about it, but I feel compelled to explain where my head space is at the moment--in the clouds. I know, I know...I'm running a style blog here. I promise better content is about to hit this place, but it is weirding me out that my sense of urgency has left the building. I'm praying that it comes back to me real soon. I have a feeling this next month will be all about experimental style. Attending Voodoo had to be one of the coolest fashion experiences I could have ever asked for. Take these photos as an interesting new beginning on La Bohemianna.

Please send me an email or leave me a comment if you have any questions :)) I'm always open to them! If you want to know more about Voodoo Fest don't hesitate to ask!



XCheers to LifeX

FEMALE EMPOWERMENT IS THE NEW PRADA + SQUAD OUTFIT DETAILS

 
 

 
 
 

 Behind every spunky, dare-to-be-different, confident girl is a group of women who have led her to believe that her ideas are brilliant and she cannot be stopped. And if someone tries...the wrath of a thousand felines will be unleashed. Yes, these are my sweet feline friends. My name is Jenessy and I'm a feminist. Welcome to the group.

These ladies right here are absolutely amazing. They are the definition of a true female friend. The force of friendship with these ones is strong. If you have ever gotten close and personal with me, you will have learned two things. One, I'm quiet when you think you know me and I have no limits when you do. Two, I refuse to waste time talking about my feelings. There's nothing wrong with having feelings, because everyone has them. I just don't want to push them on others...unless I have to. Well, I 'm about to unleash some feelings and you have been warned. (If you come for the fashion and not this long ass story, then please scroll down to the outfit details.)

LET'S GET STARTED, SHALL WE?!

The natural beauty that you see to your left is named Mikayla. She has the magic touch on all these pictures. She's my photographer! If she will let me claim her...I'm claiming her! We met in high school but we never really hung out until our Freshman year of college. She guided me to my lovely husband. If I had not met her...I don't know if I would have met him that fall evening at the college radio station. Since I have known Mikayla, I have thrown ideas out there and she's always like, "You should do it!" and I always do. I even wrote a children's book in Spanish and English that hopefully one day we could publish with her illustrations. Throughout the time that I have known her...she has never put me down but she has always been honest. Sincerity seems like it's becoming harder to find as I get older and this is something that I will always cherish. She's a hardworking single mom to a beautiful little girl named Isla...and she does an amazing job. Isla is as free spirited as her mommy is and that's such a huge blessing. Being friends with Mikayla has taught me that I don't need to be afraid to be who I am.

This beautiful soul to the right is Alicia! We have also been friends since high school and it wasn't until recently that I had found that she was a fellow hippie soul'ed individual. This could be why we get along so well. She has so many qualities that have also pushed me to own who I am unapologetically. One of the best qualities that this chica has is her strong personality. She is always my adventuring friend. If it sounds like fun, then we will most likely do it! Our friendship isn't all on the surface. She's the friend who knows ALL of the details even if she doesn't want to. Honestly, she gets the privilege of knowing because she always pushes me in the right direction. And believe me, if I'm wrong for something...I will know. These girls are the best! We all help each other be better humans and we lift each other up. This is what friendship and female empowerment is supposed to be.

Now that I have bored you with my love story...please find these outfit details below. Thank you for being patient and reading on. Happy Hump Day, lovelies!

NOW TRENDING: ROCKING THE SHIRT UNDER DRESS TREND WITH A ROMPER





PHOTOGRAPHY BY MIKAYLA HART

It's no surprise that here I am...yet again, doing another blog post about a ROMPER! I believe I have found my favorite type of clothing. Rompers are so cozy, easy to wear, and versatile. One romper can have at least five different looks. Did I do my math correctly? Not sure...Math is not my major...Psychology is. But I can tell you that you will feel exhilarated with this outfit. It's the perfect balance between making a bold[er] statement with really chic pieces.

When I first started blogging a few weeks ago, I looked online for stores that had unique pieces that related most to my style. In the process, I fell in love with TOBI and everything they had to offer. It seems like everything that I buy from there, I can't seem to take off. This choker, romper, and shoes are all from there! Maybe one day soon, I can be sponsored by them...because I AM OBSESSED! Not only do they house chic clothing, but they are actually great quality. I'm looking forward to my future purchases.

This outfit is such an easy and trendy fall transition style. I paired this pink romper with a black crop top underneath for some flair. Throw on that cute leather backpack and you are good to go! What I love most is how low maintenance this outfit truly is; especially for some of us ladies that have to be on the run with our babies. I think this romper covers the bases as a "do anything and go" type of outfit. Date night? Check! Brunch with the girls? Check! Pumpkin Picking? Uh...Check! Yeah girl, you go pick those pumpkins looking mighty fine. Mmmhmm...And when you're done please let me know, what has been your favorite fall trend so far? Feel free to send me any questions you have!

Bye, loves! I hope your Sunday has been magnificent ;)
