Wrapsody: how to work a bohemian-inspired outfit for winter

I adore adding a bit of hippie-chic detail to my summertime looks…but including that kind of vibe in a wintery combination doesn’t quite feel so “natural” somehow.  While warm weather is made for easy-breezy touches like fringy hems, distressed flares, floral kimonos, and cowboy boots, things like that don’t always translate well when the temperature drops – brrr! – and bundling up becomes a sartorial priority.

So what’s a girl to do when the “boho bug” bites in the middle of December??  I would have loved to pair my Maison Scotch flare jeans with just a tank top, my chunky faux-fur scarf and lots of layered necklaces…but let’s get real!!  I’m a personal style blogger living in Canada, not a model who’s being paid the big bucks to freeze her buns off for a magazine spread.  Which means layers of a cozier type are definitely in order; and I don’t think it could get much more perfect than my little mustard-yellow wool jacket peeking out from under this colour-blocked poncho/scarf hybrid.  It’s almost as if the two pieces were made for each other!!  And look – there’s even a floppy hat and those requisite fringes, too!!

It actually makes a lot of sense that I’d be into ensembles with a bohemian spin; after all, they’re a very close cousin to my go-to “I’m with the band” looks. Don’t believe me??  Just think of Stevie Nicks’ ethereal, gypsy-inspired outfits.  And even at almost seventy, Steve Tyler still knows how to work those skinny scarfs, feathers, and flowy shirts like a total rock ‘n’ roll king!!

Robin has promised me that he’s going to win the lottery one of these days…and when that happens?!  You can bet the two of us will turn into “snowbirds” and migrate south to spend Canada’s coldest months on a tropical beach every year.  In the meantime, I guess I’ll just have to “make do” with a winterized version of bohemian like I’ve done today!!
