Summer Boho Style, over 40.

Summer Boho Style, over 40 | Fake Fabulous

Today's summer outfit is actually from a couple of days ago, because the sun has packed up and left the Scottish sky!

{I'm typing this in a cosy jumper (the one in this post) and a maxi skirt (the one from this post)... with thermal leggings underneath!
The Scottish weather is drizzling on us, and it's a bit damp and gloomy.
Or 'Dreich'...a great Scottish word!}

A few days ago it was sunny and just warm enough.

When the sun breaks through the clouds I often reach for boho-inspired items like hippy love beads (I still have mine from my student days) and birkenstocks.
But today I wanted to keep things simple, and my toes covered.
Some days are like that aren't they?

I just got this beaded dress do all of the work for me.
It's embroidered details, and asymmetric hemline, make enough of a statement without the need for very much else.
A wide belt adds shape to the billowing fabric, and the denim gilet keeps things casual.
Big earrings, simple shoes and a neutral bag finishes things off nicely.

  1. lovely layering! and you really rock your accessories!, those big earrings!, the bag, the belt!, everything looks amazing and enhances the whole ensemble!
    Lovely boho style!

  2. This dress is so pretty. Embroidery and beading are so appealing and hard for me to resist. When I was in college in the early 70's I remember shopping but not being able to afford these kinds of beautiful dresses. I've never lost my love for bohemian fashion. You look beautiful Samantha.
    I'm sorry that the Scottish weather refuses to cooperate!!I grew up in northern Minnesota right on Lake Superior where summertime offers too many cool and drizzly days. That kind of weather does make for a certain giddiness when the odd warm and sunny day does come along!

    1. Hahaha...Yes, that's very true Judy!
      I'm in my shorts again today as the thermometer climbed to 21!! :o)

  3. I've always loved the boho look and you've nailed it here Samantha. It's all gorgeous! Shame about the weather though. Perhaps we could swap for a bit - it's BOILING here at the moment!!

    1. Thank you Suzy.... I'm not sure I could handle it, if I'm honest.
      HOT is great lying by a pool with a cocktail, not so great with a job and housework/family to do!
      Having said that, my washing would be bone dry in no time instead of in and out more times than are funny :oP
