The Model and Me: Bohemian Traders spring-summer 2018

The Model and Me: Bohemian Traders spring-summer 2018

Nikki Parkinson Fashion, The Model and Me 7 Comments

If there’s one spring fashion colour that I’ve already fallen hard for, it’s yellow. I can’t wear all shades of it but if it’s got a bit of depth and I’m suitably spray tanned, then it works a treat.

It’s fresh, fun and makes you want to teleport yourself immediately to Italy’s Amalfi Coast.

The new limoncello print in the Bohemian Traders spring-summer 2018 collection makes that wanderlust all the stronger. There are so many styles available in this fab print or stripe (you can check them all out here) but for this Model and Me post, I’m revisiting a fave BT frock shape, the Dreamer dress.

The ruffle sleeve was a fun addition to last season’s Dreamer dress. You might remember that the original style had lace sleeves – or long sleeves if a winter release.

I personally love the ruffles, offset by the white piping trim. Like its predecessors, this dress is purposely an oversized fit. I’ve sized down one size but could also go to an S. It comes with its own tie which you can either leave off or position exactly where you’d like.

Me? I love a hip tie/belt as my short waist makes any of my attempts at a waist-tie situation look blocky and booby. The gorgeous model Fiona below has a longer waist, so the tie works a treat to define that.

If you’re a new mum, the hook and eye neckline makes this dress adaptable for breast-feeding.

I’ve worked my look back with tan accessories, including some fabulous new heels from FRANKiE4. Expect to see me wearing this 80mm heel A LOT this season. The cushioning and support is next level for a heel and your foot feels super secure when wearing them.

Bohemian Traders has launched its first menswear collection. I jumped on and bought two of the t-shirts for Mr SY for Father’s Day. The quality and fit is fantastic.

Then BT surprised him by sending through these black linen shorts and the khaki pants. He absolutely loves them.

#shopitforward for drought-affected areas

Solito dress bought at Alexis Dawn boutiqueThank you to each and every one of you who has shared this post that now contains more than 60 online businesses located in drought-affected areas of Australia. An even bigger thank-you if you’ve shopped at any of the businesses. 

I’m not only jumping for joy at all the support, I’m jumping in a Solito dress bought from central-west Queensland online store, Alexis Dawn. Owner Cherie spends most of her days out in the paddock for her family’s property but by night she’s managing this store, which also doubles as a travelling boutique, appearing at country stock shows.

I’d love you to keep this list of businesses front of mind should you be doing any gift shopping over the months leading up to Christmas. The dollars go direct into affected communities, creating a ripple effect that will have lasting benefits for so many.

I won’t stop talking about and sharing these amazing businesses. We really are helping to make a difference.

Check out the list HERE.

  1. You look great in yellow.!. I would like to buy something in a mustard yellow color … but I’m not sure it suits me. As a general rule, what hair colors, skin tones and eye colors suit mustard yellow?

      It’s not about rules – the best thing to do is hold up a colour to your face – if it ‘lifts’ it, it’s for you. There are so many different shades of yellow out there, it’s a good time to just ‘play’.
