I'm a California girl with a serious case of wanderlust, and my boho style is at once chic and laid-back. My closet is a healthy mix of high and low, folksy and flowy, new and vintage, conceptual and romantic. I like to pair offbeat basics with unusual accessories and I love a good statement jewelry piece. My picks here include a bit of everything that defines my sometimes wild, always eclectic, and easygoing boho style. If you enjoy, see more of my musings here.
If you have a boho bone in your body, prepare yourself to fall in love with the nursery Justina Blakeney, a self-described "designer and maker, mover and shaker" (love that!) and popular blogger, created for her baby girl, due in July. Blakeney transformed her walk-in closet into a bohemian, girlie, and truly inspiring space for her lil one. "I love to mix handmade, modern, vintage, and international pieces," says Blakeney. "Our little nursery contains of all of these things: pieces from our travels, hand-me-downs, thrifted finds, hand-crafted elements, and a few modern pieces from Tottini to give the nursery a fresh feel. We also have worked hard to keep the nursery green. We have wooden and bamboo toys, upcycled pieces like our closet bars that used to hold pots and pans in our kitchen and the curtains that used to be a tablecloth."
