Carefree Days

ChicWish Embroidered Boho Top

Lately have been gravitating toward more boho inspired styles, prints and designs. Maybe it's because of the current season and my free-spirited way of life during the summer months. One of my go-to boutiques for boho pieces with lace and embroidered detailing is ChicWish. The proof is in the pudding here, here, here...and again today with this breezy top

Unfortunately, those carefree days of no schedules and marching to the beat of our own drum are coming to a close. We are headed back to school next week and back to early morning routines. Part of me is heartbroken, the other half is ready to get back into the swing of things, but NONE of me is ready for fall, pumpkin anything or even remotely getting into the "holiday spirit". 

I am a lover of Summer and savoring every single last bit of it. I have one more month to bask in it's glow and then I'll talk spiced lattes, caramel apples, sweaters, scarves and football....and maybe just maybe start my Christmas shopping. Not holding my breath on the latter. 

LONG LIVE SUMMER! Anyone else with me?

That top is gorgeous, and I LOVE the destroyed jeans. Boho chic looks AMAZING on you Shanna, and your styling is super cute as always! Those accessories- swoon!!
On another note I relate to you so much about summer ending. Just wrote about it too- lots of bittersweet feelings as kids are going back to school and lazy days being over. Hopefully fall fashion will cheer us up haha.
Have the best Wednesday lovely, XOXO, Elif

I am very sad about summer ending too. I love having my girl home - I know that she is safe with me(: But routines are good too and I am ready to be dressed in something other than my cover up;) I love this top! This casual style is my favorite for summer- or really for every season! Susan

Victoria Mason said...

Oh, I absolutely adore the bright blue of the top and the sandals and all of it! So perfect for this time of year!

But I'm totally with you, we are in our last two weeks and I love it but feel torn. When you said "fall pumpkin anything" I hissed and made the sign of the cross. It's my favorite time of year but I'm not ready for it at all. Ha.

I love this top and have noticed your boho chic style lately, you wear it so well. Ironically, as I was virtually fist pumping "long live summer" I remember I'm wearing a very fall look on the blog with a couple pieces that were sent to me. Hehe. I guess I'll take he fall clothes, but just the weather.

Thank you, thank you thank you, I was beginning to thin I was the only person in the blog world not ready for fall. I am a summer girl and will admit I could sip all the fall, winter. spring activities to always have summer ( except maybe Thanksgiving, Christmas football and hockey, OK maybe I just need to live somewhere other than Canada LOL)
Love the boho looks lately

Setarra said...

I'm am soooo with you when it comes to Summer! It's one of the reasons why Charles and I are constantly trying to figure out ways for us to get jobs in the Caribbean so we can live the island lifestyle. But alas, so far no such luck haha. Maybe one day... Anywho, I love your boho look! Those blues sandals are too cute!

That cobalt color is seriously the most universally flattering color out there. So pretty! And while I am ready for fall and whatnot, it just doesn't feel real... the passage of time this year has been particularly fast, I think!

Loving that top! I love carefree clothes because keeping a busy schedule is sometimes anything but carefree. Maybe if we dress the part, we can start to channel some of that carefree energy into our schedules! Here's to hoping :)

Niki {Glossy Blonde} said...

Such a great outfit! I do love fall but every time summer nears its end I find myself a little choked up, like I'm not quite ready to let it go!

OMG Tell me about it, one of my local stores had their planters and garden stuff marked down 70% making space for Xmas decor, I almost had a heart attack, I did score some pretty patio pieces, but still, what about fall and thanksgiving??? I was shocked.
Anyways, you look great in cobalt :)and those sandals look so comfy.
