Boho chic is defined as a type of style being influenced by bohemian and hippie looks. Think floral prints, warm colors, fringe, round sunglasses, flowing pants and skirts, and so on. Look to celebs like Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Vanessa Hudgens, and Nicole Richie for inspiration. I am so excited to be the co-host of Michelle (Michelle’s Pa(i)ge) and Ana’s (Northwest Blonde) weekly link up post. It’s an honor to be part of this fun theme because it is so me. I love the boho style and these ladies certainly know how to dress, so make sure to check them out. I always feel fashion forward when I wear flared pants, especially with a wild and colorful pattern. I have to admit, I always feel like people on the street are going to mistaken these pants for pajamas, but then I think these are way to stylish to be pajamas. I love my flowing pants from Target, especially the bold print and colors. I feel like any hippie would be caught wearing these pants because they are comfy, trendy, and perfect for any free spirit. I kept the top simple because what could compete with these pants. I am…

We think of a key as an instrument of openings and closings. This small object, usually made of metal, can also symbolize mystery and curiosity. The key introduced in this post isn’t used to open my car, or my house, or any door for that matter, but instead it’s used to accessorize one of my favorite outfits. Recently, I connected with Deena Saracino, who created the brand La Cle (which means Key in French).

I chose a bronze key, not only because I love bronze jewelry but also because it signifies strength and energy. I wear this necklace every chance I get, not only because it’s a trendy piece but over time the color of your key fades, symbolizing the positive energy you absorb from the key. For me, this necklace is not just a chain with a key; it represents strength and energy that I believe is the key to happiness (no pun intended). As for the rest of…

         Flashback to fourth grade, my 10-year-old self is bursting with excitement on the bus heading to the Bronx Zoo. The zoo was the best field trip in elementary school. Dressed in my school’s gym uniform, friends by my side, and my mom as a chaperone, it was a trip that went in the memory book. Flash forward to now; my 20-year-old self experienced that same feeling of anticipation when my dad wanted to take me and my older sister to the Bronx Zoo. Even in our 20s, my sister and me felt like little kids going on a field trip. Throughout the 40-minute car ride, we mapped out what animals we wanted to see first and what we were looking forward to the most. Of course, I was looking forward to seeing the elephants, giraffes, and tigers.          When we finally arrived at the zoo, it felt like yesterday I was at the Bronx Zoo, not 10 years ago. Our adventure began with lots of walking, lots of animals, and lots of fun.          For this trip to the zoo, I was psyched to put together a zoo-like outfit. Back in fourth grade, my only option was my gray…
