Everyday Style @ Shenanigans Central – Bohemian Traders

It’s no secret around these parts of my fangirl ways when it comes to Bohemian Traders.


Well, there are a few reasons.

Firstly, their clothes are relaxed and easy to wear – the sort you reach for on days where you want to look stylish with a minimum of effort.

They also channel that fabulous boho vibe without the trip to the music festival, the drop loo and the combi.

And last but not least, they are quality garments, made with natural fibres that wash and wear beautifully.

So, no surprises then that during Bohemian Traders’ recent Spend and Save promotion, I made hay while the sun sunshined. In my shopping cart I lovingly placed three items in shades of light pink and white. If my recent blog re-design didn’t give it away already, I am just LOVING this soft palette at the moment after the bold, dark colours of Winter. They mix and match together beautifully and look the biz with pops of metallic and denim.

So, without further ado, let me introduce you to the first item – the Liberty Linen Dress in Pink.^

I’d say this dress is the high summer sister of the gorgeous Dusty Linen dress which I’ve worn/written about previously. It also comes in natural if neutral is more your thing.

This dress comes in a range of sizes from XS (8) to XL (16), and is $129.

It’s a generous cut. Above, I’m wearing size 12 (M) and it is a roomy, relaxed fit with plenty of room around the arms – I cannot abide high or tight armholes under any circumstances, but particularly in the heat. Sweat patches are not welcome on my watch.

I was interested to see where the under bust seam fell on me and relieved to see it sits nicely under my bust. The placket allows for a bit more skin to show too if you’re not the buttoned down type.

Length wise, as you can see, it falls just above knee length on me (I’m 5’9″), so it would sit right on or below the knee in this size for my shorter sisters.

Above, I’ve dressed it up a fraction with gold Sambag sandals and The Flock of Curious Assembly earrings but it would work equally well with thongs, wedges or a block heel.

Now on to outfit #2. Below, I’m wearing the Border Print Maxi,^ which was gifted to me by Emily at BT because she knows I how much I love a maxi skirt. It is 100% cotton and comes in one size (6-12) and retails for $109.

I love the prettiness of this print and the soft palette and it’s easy to style too – just pop on any white tee in your wardrobe, sandals and you’re done.

It’s elasticised waist allows it to be worn on or below the waist. I tend to wear my skirts a bit on the Harry High Pants side of the spectrum but it could easily sit lower. I’ve teamed it with a new season scoop neck tank from Country Road in pale pink. In cooler weather I’d throw on a cropped denim jacket and an old leather tote.

And here is the final outfit. Even though we are coming in to summer, I could not resist this Long Line Cardigan in Rose, $159. I’m wearing the M/L which fits comfortably and drapes nicely.

Living in Melbourne, a layer is often needed even in late Spring and for Autumn mornings on the other side of summer.

I’ve raved before about the flattering qualities of an elbow length sleeve too so I won’t bang on about it again suffice to say if it has an elbow length sleeve, I’m likely to buy it on this basis alone.

I’m also wearing the Corsair Cami in White (it also comes in pink) which is made from a cotton linen blend. This relaxed a line shape has a pretty pleated scoop neckline and adjustable shoestring straps – which is always a winner. The straps are very thin but a same or contrasting colour bra will sort that out. I bought it primarily to wear under my Bohemian Traders kimonos and knit cardys on mild days and over shorts.

It’s on the small side size wise. I’m wearing a Large (14) and it comes in XS (8) to XL (16).
