Oh So Boho

Oh So BoHo

Spring always gets me willing be more boho.  Light and laid back, after winter I’m ready to adjust my looks and the mark. Floral Festival collection has me doing just that!  This collection is a little bit boho a lot a bit fun, perfect for spring!

mark. Slip On By Dress

Free your mind, and the rest will follow… This free flowing slip dress, mark. Slip On By Dress is one of those super easy pieces.  Throw and go.  Simple spaghetti straps and a hankerchief hemline.  I paired mine with a chambray button down, layered necklace, and mark. Oh So Boho Ring Set (last seen here) and the mark. A Cut Above Bootie (also seen in that link above.)

This dress’ print is a navy base with pops of pink, blush, purple in the different patterns vertically.  It also has the same floral print from the boho blouse I already have.  (see here).  Its very wearable especially for spring and summer.  But this outfit would work in early fall too!

A Cut Above Bootie and boho prints!

Printed all the way around!

I am not typically a boho kind of gal but the fresh weather swings things that way.  I love that mark.’s floral fantasy collection is boho that any gal can wear.  Also new with this collection is the sizing, mark. now caters to plus size, so xs-3x!  You can shop the collection and my look at my eBoutique!

What I like about this nail look is it has some graphic black and white since it’s still winter and I’m still wearing a lot of darks but it has pops of spring with the fun flowers in pink, blue and yellow!  With the busy nail art I needed a clean accent nail and this orchid shade was it!

5 Ways To Wear An Infinity Scarf from Day To Night

1 Infinity Scarf Worn 5 Ways

1 Infinity Scarf Worn 5 Ways

Happy first day of fall!  Even though I’m forever a summer child, I’m officially now ok with busting out a scarf (over a tank), lighting a pumpkin candle (like the current favorite Pumpkin Pecan Waffles from B&BW) and stepping into some booties (preferably peep-toed).  Fall adds a layer of cozy to your life as the days get shorter and cooler.  The best way to combat that is with a scarf.  I’m currently LOVING the mark. All Around Style Scarf ($18 on sale for only $10 with a qualifying purchase at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger).  It’s the perfect balance of fun and fall, and super versatile for changing weather and functions.  Here are 5 different ways to style your infinity scarf using the mark. All Around Style Scarf.

1.  SHRUG

As you start your day it can be pretty chilly in the mornings so start it off by wearing your infinity scarf as a shrug.  Just open it up so its the full circle the slip it around your shoulders.  Done.

2.  One Shoulder

As the morning starts to warm up switch it from a shrug to a one shoulder cover up.  Wrap it around your neck twice then pull to one side, fluff and tuck as need be.

3.  The OG

The OG way (original gangsta for the urban impaired) is my favorite way.  Simple, to the point, keeps the chill off and shows off the full pattern of the scarf.  It’s perfect for the mid day.

4.  Halter Top

The day has warmed up and its time to head out to happy hour which means time to step up the outfit!  Take the scarf fully open and let it hang from your neck.  Next twist it once so they sides cross over each other.  Take the open loop and flip it around your head and shoulders and put your arms through the loops created.  Adjust it to your liking.  I personally opened it up more around the chest and tucked the “straps” to keep them slim.

5.  Kimono-Like

As the night cool creeps in and you start to get a little chilly transition your infinity scarf to almost a reverse shrug for a kimono-like look.  All you do is open it to its full size wide in one giant loop and wrap around your shoulders.  It’s like wrapping yourself in your own scarf blanket!
