Boho or hobo?

Bloglovin’ // Facebook // Twitter

These photos were taken last weekend, during my “second Christmas”. I was forced to decided to give Ugly Mug the weekend off of shooting, and my cousin Melissa graciously offered to shoot for me, after I promised her a shout out. Hi Melissa!

So, sometimes I dress like a hobo. And sometimes that means we go for walks where hobos may or may not be. This was one of those times. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve warned Ugly Mug ahead of times about my outfit with, “I’m going for gypsy,” meaning, “I know I look like a hobo, but I know what I am doing and it’s really bohemian, gypsy (in my eyes).” He hears, “I am dressing like a hobo today.” Fair enough.

I don’t even think I know how to put together a bohemian outfit, but I do know that when I try, I end up comfortable.

I must admit that my “hobo” outfits usually end up being my favorite. Truthfully, when I did not have the hat or coat on, I did look like I fell into a pile of laundry, but I was indoors, safe from the public eye, when that happened.



// Skirt: Pac Sun // Sweater: Thrifted via Crossroads Trading Co // Shoes: H & M // Hat: Marshalls // Coat: Tulle via Nordstrom //

Since we would be losing light soon, we decided to walk to the park to take photos, and then proceeded into the dried up creek. No, I wouldn’t necessarily wear this outfit for a spontaneous hike, but at least I had on flat shoes.





Let me tell you about taking your family along for outfit shoots: You’re going to be mocked. There is no ifs, ands, or buts about it. I have the proof.




My revenge was making them take photos for me again the next day. And posting these.

Thank you again to my cousin for taking these photos and putting up with my “guidence”. Ugly Mug still gets credit for coloring the photos because apparently I can’t do anything for this blog on my own.

    haha i laughed when I read your description for the gypsy/hobo/boho look. Boho is probably one of my favourite looks when done properly, and you pull it off really well. I feel like I would have no chance of not looking like a hobo lol. Love the rings! I’ve got 3 on myself right now lol

  4. Haha I’m pretty sure I would be mocked endlessly if it weren’t for self timer!
    Just stumbled upon your gorgeous blog and am a huge fan! Loooooooving it.

    mucho love

  14. Hobos are the most comfortable people out there, right? (At least, regarding fashion…) You look super cute!

    aww love your outfit, so boho chic!

  21. Kristian said:

    Ha! I love these types of photos the most too. There’s a certian attraction in the feeling that an outfit is laidback (even if you spent a lot of time thinking about what to wear you communicate nonchalance). Plus, how can one go wrong with a hat on? You just can’t!

  22. Rebecca said:

    Love the bag! Also like that you included some of your photo entourage as well! Always fun to see the other people associated with a blog!

    You look AMAZING in this post. I love your hat. Such a cute giggle face you got going there!

    Em x

  25. Boho for sure.
    Reason #1: everything you’re wearing is not covered in dirt/feces/other questionable substances.
    Reason B: you look adorable. Hobos just look kind of ominous/contagious. you just look comfy.

    thanks for stopping by my blog, I love your style, lady.


  26. I like this post, enjoyed this one thanks for putting up.

I adore each comment!
