The older I’ve got, the more I’m beginning to realise that you NEVER say never when it comes to fashion.
Oh no you don’t.
I guarantee you will be bitten on the bum.
Things change. YOU change.
What you like one day, will change the next.
That’s more than ok in my book.
Just go with the flow.
Explore, try new things.
Don’t limit yourself.
I’ve changed so much since moving to Australia.
Classic black structured frocks and heels was my everyday Monday to Friday style, when I lived in England.
Weekends or evenings saw jeans, tee’s and jackets come out to play.
When the sun shone, linen was my preference.
Always trousers for casual – not sure why, but it was.
These days, I’m more open-minded than ever.
The weather here on the Sunny Coast allows me to be more flexible in my choices – sunshine has a habit of doing that to you.
You definitely have a different outlook on what you can wear, when the mercury spikes and the sun is shining.
For at least six months of the year, its guaranteed warm enough to show some flesh here…really this could be extended, it’s only the evening and early morning temperatures that mix it up a bit and require a touch of layering.
Put it this way, the Sunny very rarely requires a coat.
Although, whatever the weather, I do like to mix my wardrobe up a bit.
Seasonal dressing is so much more fun.
The most important thing to me these days though, is not matter what, I’m not afraid to try things that I would have passed by in my former life.
Do you think that’s an age thing?
Hello Prairie Lace Dress from Bohemian Traders.
On paper it not me – in reality?
I LOVE it!
It’s not what you wear, but always how you wear it that counts to me.
All you have to do is just make it your own.
Now back in the UK Boho and Bev did not go together one iota.
It just wasn’t me. I would have dismissed it in a heartbeat.
But with my new approach to fashion and life..
EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
Who would have known eh?…maybe I’m a bit boho after all.
I’m not wearing a slip under the dress in the pic’s but most of the time, I know I will add one underneath for extra modesty, or a bit of extra warmth on a cooler day.
You on the other-hand, might not need it.
The fabric is soft, lightweight and so easy to wear.
My favourite bit? The sleeve.
I just adore sleeves on dresses – they offer all kinds of magic in my book.
Winter white is incredible, don’t you agree?
It always works.
Add some grey or caramel and BINGO – the fireworks start to explode.
This Prairie dress will work beautifully with flat strappy sandals or heels. If you’re more of a winter boot lover, why not add your favourite ankle boot.
Dress it up or down.
The lovely Nikki over at Styling You is wearing the same dress, but in black at a recent South East Queensland Instagram get-together. Nikki glammed up her frock with a nude heel and a touch of leopard on her clutch. The result was lovely/
She looked the bees-knees, I tell ya.
Which just underlines how flexible this little frock is.
Oh and before I love you and leave you…Guess what pretties? Bohemian Traders have a spend and save on at the moment too – you’re welcome!
Is this your kind of dress?
Tell me, what have you got your eye on from Bohemian Traders?
