Urban cowgirl

I’m back to my beloved bohemian-inspired style today, dear readers!!

When I look back through my outfit photo diary – as all bloggers periodically do, I’m sure! – it becomes very apparent to me that even though I definitely have certain predilections when it comes to fashion, my personal style could actually best be described as “eclectic”…I truly like a little bit of everything!!

Edgy, mod, tomboy, hippie chic, minimalist, grunge; they’re all looks with which I’ve experimented in the past.  (Aren’t we so lucky to be living in an age where it’s perfectly acceptable to dress according to our daily moods…and to express all the various sides to our personalities??)

Of course, I’ll always have my favourite influences; and today, my floppy hat and furry vest combination is both a little bit boho…and a little bit rock and roll!!

P.S. Please remember…if you like what you see, you’ll never miss a post via Bloglovin; I’d be so thrilled if you followed me!!

    Your vest is amazing, been looking for one of those but can't seem to find any! Love what you paired with it as well, it all works very well together πŸ™‚
    Yes it is great that we can experiment with our clothing isn't it? πŸ™‚

      I found this furry vest right after I'd already brought one home from Zara, dear Kelsey and Kenecha…and yes, I kept them both!! So sorry you're having trouble finding your own, but it's worthwhile to keep looking…I promise!! XOXO

    Just what my wardrobe needs … a furry vest and floppy hat! Can you believe I still don't have either one? You look amazing and yes, I always especially love your rock goddess boho chic looks! FAB!!!!

      It's sooo much fun to mix things up, dearest Dawn…after all, fashion is NEVER at a stand-still; and as fans of personal style, I think it's only natural that we're always willing to try something new!! But it's also great to have some "trademark" looks to fall back on…there's nothing better than having a comfort zone for recharging our style batteries, am I right?! P.S. I can TOTALLY see you in a furry vest and floppy hat combo!! XOXO

      Personal style is such an adventure, isn't it, dearest Debbie?! And sharing it with blogger friends is both rewarding and inspiring…which are the hallmarks of ANY adventure!! XOXO

    Wow, I like your outfit very much! I immediately fell in love with your hat. I wondered if you would like to follow each other. Let me know on my blog. That would be really awesome! πŸ™‚

      It's always wonderful to meet another "hat fan," dear Mery!! Of course I've already visited your blog, too…and would be very happy to follow!! πŸ™‚

    You are such a wonderfully talented eclectic fashionista, Monika! It usually takes me to see only a few posts to determine if I want to follow the blog or not. I don't just look at the outfits – it's the personality and the way she expresses herself, it can be writing, photography or anything else, really. Your blog is so easy to love – you are such a vibrant, sunny person with great inspired outfits. I agree with you that to live in our time is great because we are so free to express ourselves, via fashion choices and not just that – I can't think of any similar time in history when people explored the freedom to be themselves as much.

    Love this outfit a lot! Your details are always exquisite – you are a true master! xxx

      Oh my goodness, I sure hope I can live up to expectations, dearest Natalia…but I sincerely thank you for this tremendous compliment!! Blogging, and my blogger friends, have become a very big part of my life…and I often worry that I'll disappoint someone by posting "bad" photos, or by not returning a visit or a comment in a timely manner. But I promise that I'll keep doing what I'm doing…I'm having too much fun not to!! XOXO

      Thanks, dear LaviΓ±a…best wishes for the New Year to you, too!! πŸ™‚

    Monika dear I can only agree with Natalia. You are such a lovely and beautiful lady and the outfit looks great on you. Happy New Year!!!

      Sending best wishes for 2015 to you (and your family!) too, dearest Elsie!! I feel incredibly lucky to be part of such a thoughtful and caring online community; my blog may yet be small in numbers…but it's definitely HUGE in heart!! XOXO
