It’s been freezing in New Jersey the past few days and I am cuddled on my couch in loungewear and I have our fireplace on. Monday we had two snow squalls and the wind has been blowing fiercely since Sunday, which is making me ache for sun-kissed days. Today is much nicer, but it’s still not as warm as I’d like. Mother Nature has been teasing us like crazy and we had a little taste of spring, but then as of Sunday, it vanished. Tomorrow it’s supposed to warm up greatly, which I’m excited about. I love the cold weather, but I am ready for consistent spring weather, sunny skies, and warm breezes. Despite the recent cold snap, we’ve been spending time on Long Beach Island every weekend (my favorite New Jersey beach) and shopping, walking on the beach, going to our favorite restaurants, and taking Greyson to the bayside parks. I feel free and at peace when I’m on the island and I forget about all of the daily noise. Life gets so busy and it’s important to disappear for a moment in beautiful places. There’s nothing better than a quiet Sunday, drifting into one of my favorite beach boutiques, after strolling on the sand.
Boho Spring Fashion
I love spring for many reasons, but mainly I love the renewal that comes with the season. I love Easter, Passover, and finally stepping foot into my favorite garden center again, spending an insane amount of money on plants. I love renewing my wardrobe and handpicking some new clothes and accessories for the warm months ahead. Spring fashion is filled with color, dresses, and playful accessories (sunnies, wedges, and fun jewelry). I did some shopping last weekend in Long Beach Island at a boutique called How To Live and the famous Farias Surf Shop. I also bought some new jeans the other day at Target that are so comfortable and cute. I live for Target. I can buy a pair of jeans, ten candles, an outdoor planter, and a toy for Greyson all in one place. Boho fashion is comfortable, consisting of peasant blouses, loose dresses, and flowing layers. Beach boutiques are filled with bohemian options and unique pieces that are perfect for warm weather. As a busy, down-to-earth mama, I appreciate the comfort of boho-chic clothing.
Spring is notorious for unpredictable weather, which makes successful fashion moments tricky. Last week it was seventy degrees here in New Jersey and I was wearing a maxi dress and a kimono, and yesterday it dropped down to twenty-one degrees at night, and I’ve been wearing leggings and a sweater ever since. Layers are your best friend during the early days of spring. I love a loose, short dress with a flowing cardigan when it’s too soon to commit to a true warm-weather outfit. It’s also a great time of the year to live in athleisure, which is made for everyday wear and exercise. Capri leggings are my absolute favorite as it gets warmer, and All In Motion Capri Leggings from Target are amazing and affordable. I run my errands in my leggings and then I come home and hop on my exercise bike. Being a boho chickie is all about self-confidence and whatever makes you feel like a beautiful warrior is what you should wear.
Enjoy the rest of your week, chickies. I’ll be back soon with more of my bohemian life.
