My Pinterest board, Boho Love and Gypsy Soul (https://www.pinterest.com/syryn22/boho-love-and-gypsy-soul/) has over 3200 pins of countless images of bohemian style pieces for the gypsy spirits. One clothier who is a constant on pin status logs is Free People. Free People’s bohemian inspired clothes have a vintage feel, yet also has a very modern, 2015 edge to them, making their clothes sought after by the rich and not so rich. Free People’s models and design inspirations take me to Coachella Music Festival, back to the colorful and vibrant streets of San Francisco and Berkeley.

I am always scoping their website to see what they will come up with next in bohemian and wanderlust fashion. Here are some of my favorite Free People pins (it was hard to choose which ones to showcase!):

2014 Fall Must Have: Shearling

It’s no surprise Glamour Magazine singled out this soft and warm textile as a must-have for Fall 2014. I am an endless summer kind of girl, but there’s a time when the Sacramento ninety degree weather breaks, the days get shorter, colder and I do a little happy dance when it’s time to pull out my cool weather garbs.

Shearling is like plaid in the cold months – timeless. But, (the look of) shearling is in vogue this season, so for those lucky folks who already own a shearling lined jacket – rejoice! And, for the rest of us who covet one, take a look at the styles I curated below – bound to conjure daydreams of all the outfits a shearling jacket would complete :-).

Here’s a round-up of the flyest shearling jackets for all budgets:

Cascade Shearling Coat, on sale $119. Alloy.

Burberry Brit Sheppington Shearling Jacket, $2995. Bloomingdales.

Faux Suede and Faux Shearling Jacket, $43. Forever 21.

Overland Sheepskin Co Holly Shearling Sheepskin Jacket, $759. Amazon.com.

Faux Shearling Jacket, $50. Forever 21.

One Green Blouse and Two Pairs of Jeans

Dark denim washed jeans with one of my favorite green blouses. Gold hoops, colorful and gold bangles, and tribal patterned sandals finish off the look.

Same green blouse, but bleached washed jeans.

I’m often asked what’s the “in” denim color to wear this season.  I am happy to report anything goes for denim color.

The above pictures illustrate how the same green blouse can be worn with either dark or light denim.

You can update your wardrobe by mixing up your denim colors with your favorite tops and accessories. Dark denim has a different feel than light, so play with the different looks and have fun with it.

What’s your favorite denim color and go-to denim look?
