Hello Ladies!

For this week's work look, I went for a nice and cool boho vibe. I kept the main color scheme of the outfit neutral with various shades of white and beige and added some pops of color with my shoes and purse. 

You all know that I'm a fan of the boho style, mainly during the warmer months, when I feel it's most practical here in NY, and I think mainly it's because it makes me feel more calm and relaxed. I've mentioned many times how our style and outfits say a lot about who we are, in terms of our personality, as well as the mood we're currently in, demonstrating that there is a psychological aspect to fashion, if it has ever been overlooked. 

Sometimes, when I'm a little stressed I tend to reach for my boho like pieces and I haven't really noticed it until recently. There's something about the lighter fabric, details, and colors that soothe me. You know how grandmas have the reputation of making you feel overly comfortable and that everything is going to be all right? The knitted or crochet patterns and details most commonly found on boho pieces, remind me of that...grandma saying everything is alright in the midst of the chaos at work. And so, I feel that wearing these pieces can relax us. I know to some this may seem a bit far fetched, by I challenge you to try it.
