Bohemian Wrap City

So... I've always been really apprehensive about doing outfit posts. Today I decided to throw apprehension to the wind and put myself and my darn outfits out there. It makes me feel really vulnerable to set myself up to be judged, but I know for all the possible haters there are many kind readers ready to welcome me and this new way of sharing myself.

When I logged in to start this very first outfit post I realized that this is my 200th blog entry (queue the confetti from the rafters). So cheers to a blog milestone and to a new, more confident me who's ready to give more of myself and not worry too much about what I get, or don't get in return.

This outfit came about very organically. I think it's a great way to kick off this new 'Style Ish' blog category - I didn't over think it or try to dress for the blog, I just went with it. I got dressed with comfort in mind, ready to work from home and impress no one but my kitty and puppy (Duncan's out of town- boo). Plans were made mid day to meet up with a few friends for dinner so I stuck with what I had on, fixed my hair and added some accessories. Viola! My Bohemian Wrap City outfit was ready!

Bohemian head scarf * Wrap sweater * City Girl Shoes * Bohemian Wrap City - Outfit PostI bought the plaid scarf at Goodwill a while back and have used it a ton of different ways lately. It's usually my 'I haven't showered yet today and my curly hair is a frizz ball mess' scarf that hides the fuzziness. Today I added it to my more polished curls. Here's a visual step by step on how it tied it on: Head Scarf DIYAnd there you have it! Here's the breakdown-
Head Scarf - thrifted

Wrap Sweater and Cords - GAP

You are so adorably pretty! I love the head scarf too; my hair is really curly too and it's a pain to wash every day, so when I don't feel like washing it I just throw in a headscarf too. :)

Love your blog and your shop! You've got some cute jewellery. :)

Looks great Mol. I had the same issue wearing a scarf around my head. I thought it might now go over but looking back I loved it.
