More on Sweatshirt Dresses

Why Sweatshirt Dresses: Sweatshirt dresses are warm and snug. They're perfect for chillier temperatures.The one I'm wearing to the left I bought from Gap. It's great. I dress it up with a large belt and usually I wear a cardigan with it. If you find one that naturally accentuates your waist then a belt isn't necessary. But even so, don't be afraid to add a belt. A belt could add flare to it!

Advice: If you find a rather plain sweatshirt dress, don't turn up your nose to it. If you like more exciting clothes pair it with an exciting cardigan or eye-catching accessory such as a necklace, belt, scarf, etc. Of course, you can pair your dress with more than one accessory. Before you leave the house, just make sure the outfit feels right and looks right.

Be Stylish! Be Comfy! And do it all at once!

More on Maxi Skirts

Welcome to my latest series! I'm going to tell you how you can be comfortable and happy while still being stylish by suggesting different clothing items! 

Maxi Skirts

What's so great about Maxi Skirts?- In my opinion, they're one of the most comfortable skirts around. Unlike many clothing items today, they're not constricting. Instead, they flow about you gracefully

Types of Maxis: Maxi skirts can have different prints and embellishments. You can easily find one that fits your preference. Many are decorated with lace, ethnic prints, tie-dye (such as the one to the left), etc.

Other Benefits to Maxi Skirts: Maxi skirts can be extremely versatile. When it's hot, pair them with flip-flops, wedges, etc and a comfy tee. In colder times, you'll have fun layering it. You'll be perfectly snug in a pair of leggings, a pair of matching boots, long sleeve, a pullover-sweater or cardigan. Of course, you can also add accessories to an outfit that includes a maxi skirt. You can wear both thick and thin scarves, jewelry, hats, etc

Bohemian Style: Maxi skirts and  maxi dresses are also preferable by bohemians.

 (REMEMBER, in the winter if you live in climates that go into single digits make sure that the leggings and skirt you wear are very thick and warm).

So Boho

Why I Like the Bohemian Look:
Being bohemian is a simple way to feel freer and more unique. It's comfortable and can be feminine all at the same time. And I love how easily I can add a couple of accessories to any outfit and give it a bohemian flare or go completely bohemian by choosing a couple boho clothing items. I also like the way it works with my sweet style, adding a little flavor. According to and my own personal experience, here are several helpful list.

Here are some examples of shoes and accessories you can add to any ordinary or plain outfit
  1. moccasin boots/ moccasins
  2. boho-chic necklaces (usually involves multi-layers)
  3. gladiator sandals
  4. hobo bags
  5. a scarf with an ethnic print
  6. beanie hats (can be)
  7. bangles
Prints Associated With the Style:
  1. Ethnic Prints
  2. Tribal Prints
  3. Floral Prints
Decorations Associated With  the Style:
  1. Lace
  2. Fringe
Clothing Items Associated With Style:

Here's a Plain Outfit                                                                        Same Outfit With Boho Accessories

The pic to the right uses the same outfit as the pic to the left. It just adds a couple of bohemian accessories. The accessories used are: a fringe purse, fringe scarf, and a boho multi-chained necklace.

Adding accessories is a not only a simple way to make an outfit more bohemian, but it also adds flare to an outfit that is otherwise pretty boring. 

How to Keep the Bohemian Look Alive:

Many people think the bohemian style had died out. Turns out, people like me are keeping it alive. As you can see above, it doesn't take much to make an outfit more boho-chic. And I should tell you that it's a style anyone and everyone can find something appealing in.
