Say hello to a carefree, bohemian mom…

Bohemian – Day 1


Oh, how lucky it is to be a bohemian.  Bohemian women dance by themselves at parties.  They don’t wear bras if they need to, but only if they want to.  They hitchhike without fear of being bludgeoned with a hammer.

I have great admiration for the bohemian.  It’s a sexy look without showing a lot of skin.  ”This look says, “I never get flu shots and yet I never get the flu.”  This look says, “When I vote at all, I vote for vegans.”  We’re talking a major hippie chick look. The bohemian has inner confidence. The bohemian takes the road less travelled.

Bohemian is a great look for moms because –

Bohemians are okay with chaos.  So instead of kicking yourself that your house is a disaster, your bohemian look will remind you to take a deep breath and have a hot cup of herbal tea.  Or maybe a pot cookie.

Bohemian is a great look for any body type.  Everything is so long and flowy, you can let your freak c-section mom body fly.

Bohemian boasts a lot of flowery prints.  Prints that hide peanut butter and jelly stains.

I am so excited about being a bohemian for month.  As a tightly wound individual, I’m always looking for ways to unwind.  I’ve tried everything, but I’m too hyper to meditate and I certainly don’t have time for ninety minutes of yoga every morning.  I’m thinking if I just dress like someone who meditates and does yoga, maybe a calm serenity will just wash over me.  My only concern is the bohemian is not known for responsibility.  You will never hear the phrase, “I have the best bohemian financial planner.”  So what if the look takes me so far into carefree land that I lose myself completely, forget to pay the bills and pick up my children at school because I’m having too much fun braiding my armpit hair?

Only time will tell.  Although, I won’t know what time is telling me because bohemians don’t wear watches…

Wish me luck.  Or maybe just send me some good energy.

    Love that look! Those shoes are adorable and I am not sure a true bohemian would be wearing them…b/c they may not be so comfortable and allow for fluid movement? How can you run and play in the wildflowers with those shoes? Oh and most people I see wearing clothes like this in my neck of the woods are very, very dirty…

      Yes, so true! Bohemians don’t mind a little dirt. They can easily forgo the shower if necessary for days, if not weeks on end. They prefer to bathe in rivers. I don’t think I’ll take it that far. If I haven’t showered by eleven in the morning I feel like I have the flu.

    I LOVE this look. Maybe I wouldn’t be living in Sebastopol if I didn’t. I say, feel the rhythm and get into the groove baby because you look way-out and wild!

    • My Year of Fabulous says:

      Thank you! I feel like I’m finally “one” with my town. And I swear, there is something so relaxing about this style — it’s strange. Maybe it’s all the flowy things. you just go with the flow.

    Sending some good vibes your way! ;)

    I hope you have fun with this style! As both an astrologer and having the common friend in Kenna, I do disagree a little with the bohemian financial planner part, although it is very funny the way you write about it. Taurus, the sign which could easily be Earth Mama Boho, is also in charge of money/finances/material goods and wealth. While our friend may not be the most flamboyant bohemian, I’d say she is a touch, and a good financial planner to boot. It is the Piscean Earth Mama Bohemian who might not readily be a good financial planner, true!

      Thanks! I should have distinguished it more. I am working on being responsible and knowledgable in the finance world, so maybe I will become my own bohemian financial planner!
