    Spring is my most favourite of seasons.  You get a sneak peek into what Summer is going to offer up so you can test out your new floral maxi, as well as leaving us a few left over Winter days to keep you in your fave pair of boots. Perfect!

    In today’s Spring Basics series, I’m featuring the Boho Babe.

    Our Boho Babe loves florals, natural textures & comfort.  She’s creative, grounded, fun loving & there’s a little bit of her in all of us!

    Even if you aren’t a full time Boho Babe, it’s easy to take inspiration from this style & incorporate some simple pieces to embrace your inner flower child!

    10 Boho Babe Spring Basics:

    Floral Maxi – nothing says Boho Babe more than a Maxi Dress!  There’s plenty to choose from this season in both prints & plain.  Make sure you try on a few different styles to find one that works for you.  My Boho Babe suits the v neckline of this Sportsgirl Maxi & the gorgeous kimono sleeve adds a little modesty.  The neutral tones of this floral also makes it super easy to wear casual with sandals or dressed up for date night with some statement earrings!

    Boho Blouse – this Johnny Was blouse is going to offer perfect versatility.  It’s gorgeous embroidery means it can stand alone with a pair of jeans or work it’s way out from underneath a jacket on those cooler Spring days!

    Bohemian Blazer – even a Boho Babe has to be taken seriously sometimes!  My Boho Babe can throw this Khaki Bohemian Traders Blazer on with a pair of pants for the office or with a denim skirt for a lunch meeting.  Steering away from black makes this blazer seriously easy for the Boho Babe to feel comfortable in work wear!

    Pretty Cami – camisoles are the perfect basic for the Boho Babe.  Get one in every colour & you’ll be able to layer them under jackets, over tees or on their own! A touch of lace brings a vintage look to an up to date look.

    Kimono – the perfect Boho trans seasonal piece, the kimono can be layered over pretty much any outfit.  Over bathers at the beach, a little black dress for dinner or with jeans & a t shirt, a kimono is a super versatile piece for the Boho Babe.

    Festival Boots – all good Boho Babes need a pair of festival worthy ankle boots!  The suede & buckle on these ASOS boots give them that festival vibe!

    Saddle Bag – these bags are just too cute!  Plenty of texture & natural materials to keep our Boho Babe in hippy heaven!

    Metallic Sandals – these Frankie4 sandals are perfect for a Boho Babe like me who’s on her feet all day!  Super cute & super easy on the feet with their orthopaedic goodness!  Perfect with a dress or jeans & of course some gorgeous painted toenails for those sunny Spring days!

    Palazzo Pants – there’s something about a pair of free flowing loose pants that screams free love!  A pair of wide leg Palazzo style pants like these ones from Country Road, are easy to dress up or down & even though they’re black, fit seamlessly into the Boho Babe basics.

    Denim – I couldn’t leave out some denim for our Boho Babe’s basics.  Instead of jeans, how about this One Teaspoon denim maxi skirt?  Flattering & versatile – think outside the square for your Boho inspired denim.
