La Vie Boheme

Blouse, Jovovich Hawk for Target. Vest, Old Navy. Strapless dress, Newport News. Peeptoe pumps, Wet Seal. Bag, thrifted. Earrings, Panagea.

I got one shot before my camera died. I’ll admit, in the past, I’ve hung out in my work outfit, waiting for the battery to charge enough to try a few more shots. This time, I was hot and ready to change. Yes, I'm missing the top of my head...but who needs it?

I used to be a neo-hippie. I wore Birkenstocks and patchouli oil and eschewed hair removal and meat. Now, I’m borderline HM (High Maintenance). An outfit like this reminds me of my more bohemian days (except for the shoes).

How I wished you had a included a picture of your neo-hippie days! I was a wanna-be neo-hippie who had a wierd obsession with hair removal (still do actually) and I love meat.
How I envy your bravery with the vest! I always feel mannish when I try on a vest, but you look very feminine. Maybe I'll give it a whirl again.

That look is delightful! Lately, I've been examining my hidden "inner hippie". The most "hippie-ish" thing I love is paisley. I adore paisley! And that blouse.

Love this outfit. It is amazing the little touches that can make an outfit come together. The vest totally does it for me. Great job!

For only having taken one shot, this is a particularly cute picture of you, thus proving that even us borderline HM's can pull it off without a fuss sometimes. I adore this outfit.

I admire that you can take picture of your daily outfits. I wish I could do the same. It sounds simple, take a snapshot and be happy with it. I just wouldn't know what to do with the pictures. I was thinking of making my own reference book, so I can flip through it to find a good outfit for any occassion. =0) Keep up with the smile and the outfits!

That's so cute you were a neo-hippie. I would never have guessed with all your "professional" type outfits you wear now. I like how the skirt and vest are more professional style and the shirt and shoes are more funky. I think the shoes you wore Thurs. would have matched great with the shirt as well.

My friends refer to me as "the hygienic hippie:" I'm a vegetarian tree hugger, who bathes daily and is an excellent dresser. Love the vests, by the way. Wish I could pull them off.
