My love for – and embracing of – the boho style is something that has evolved since I started my own business and swapped a corporate-y wardrobe for a more casual one.
Oh, and our fictitious friend Nina Proudman may have had something to do with me falling even more of a little more of this whimsical style.
Australian online retail success story, Birdsnest, realised that it’s not just me who’s keen to unleash their inner boho chic.
Following the success of the launch of its first in-house label, That Bird The Label, last spring, Birdnest has added Boho Bird to its stable. Or should I say nest.
What Birdsnest says: This bohemian-inspired range is a meeting of feminine, whimsical pieces that are as practical as they are beautiful.
What I say: Show me more.
This first collection includes 35 pieces – pieces that will take you from autumn through to the coolest months of winter. That’s the beauty of boho – layering just enhances the total look.
You can check out the collection here. The final pieces in the autumn-winter collection will arrive by May.
I’m featuring one of the dresses in the collection because for a Queensland girl a dress like this will get a lot of wear between now and September.
Boho Bird Morocco shift dress $129.95
I love so much about this dress. It’s incredibly easy to wear. I love the feel of rayon, the way it falls and how soft it is.
This piece also includes a viscose slip – I’m always adding a slip under anything to prevent any possibilities of indecent exposure of a grown woman, so having one come with the garment is a bonus.
I’ve kept my accessories in this outfit to a minimum. The embroidery in this piece is a statement in itself and the boots provide another focal point. Adding in a couple of bangles that pick up the colours in the boots and dress is enough for me.
When it cools down, I’ll add black tights, a scarf and wear with black ankle or knee-high boots and a Metalicus wool trench coat – a wardrobe stalwart I’ve had for a few years now.
Black and white not your thing? There’s a beautiful sandstone colour way available too.
What say you to a little boho? Yes or no? And are you a Birdsnest shopper?
