The Jolie-Pitt clan is seriously going to rule the world in about 15 years. Their small army of six is too cute for words and they each have their own personal style (or so it seems). I don’t even have as good of style as these 6-year olds!

Although I’m a native of the rain drenched Pacific Northwest, I’m most definitely a sunshine girl at heart. Boots and beanies are great for a few months, but NOT for June (I mean really rainclouds, REALLY?!?). As I mournfully peer outside at the devastatingly un-summerific weather we’re currently having, my mind drifts to more happier things in life: sandals, shorts and fringe…yes, fringe. Bohemian dreamin’ is what’s getting my through these wet days of pre-summer fun. If you’re looking for a little hippy inspiration yourself, check out the 5 easy steps you can take to be boho fabulous.

Get Slouchy with Dolce Vita's Blakely Topbangles.

1. Pile on an unnecessary amount of jewelry: To really get into the boho spirit, throw caution to the wind when it comes to accessorizing. Forget your mother’s style advice about less is more: Do as the gypsies do and wear layer upon layers of your favorite beads, gems and bangles.

2. Show some skin: …But not too much. Showing off your gams is a must, but balance it out on top with a loose fitting peasant blouse or not-too-low-cut dress. When you’re going boho, you get the green light to pull on extra short shorts.

3. Get slouchy: Slouchy boots and slouchy shirtdresses scream bohemian. If you’re top is extra roomy, cinch it together with a western leather belt.

4. Vest up: The vest is a key piece in the whole hippy look. Suede is great. Fringe is fantastic.

5. Act the part: The best part about bohemian style is that it’s carefree and effortless. Now that you have the

pieces in place to make a great outfit, pull it all together by acting like the free spirit that you are…just don’t get caught in the rain šŸ™‚
