Bohemian Baby
12-1

I've always been fond of a bit of boho, although the term has rather naff connotations. I think the key to a chic bohemian vibe is not to over do it with the accessories; too much jingiling jewellery can undermine the look. If I'm wearing a boho dress, I like to wear one or two bold pieces of jewellery. I love this silk dress [ read more ... ]

A lot of the dresses fall about an inch above the knee, which suits me like socks suit a rooster. I'm still in the awkward in-between phase, where I don't really look pregnant but most of my clothes don't fit.

The World We live in
sarahg_canadianculturaldiversity

I've been the thinking about the world I want to live in. I'm reminded of when I went on holiday this summer with my family. It was a few weeks after the Brexit vote and there was an atmosphere of tense uncertainty. I sat with my mother on a bench at Heathrow and watched the other travellers milling around the terminal.
