Baja Boho Fashion Style


Baja boho

I've referred to my style as "desert pirate," but as I have lost so much weight, I have defined the vibe of my style to Baja Boho.

I will explain it in imagery and the senses -

MUSIC: Singer Blanco White, Sting's Brand New Day album, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Kings of Leon.

Sensory: Your face turned up to the sun with eyes closed, a car window rolled down on a spring morning, icy ocean water on a quick dip, first big drops of rain in a monsoon storm, gentle sway of a hammock, sound of windchimes, sunlight dancing off a pool and casting light on a patio ceiling, the sway of hips to island music.

Colors: Spices, citrus, sky, and sea... oatmeal white, sand, bisque, nutmeg, cinnamon, sage, khaki, aquamarine, turquoise, seafoam, lemon, lime, grapefruit pink, orange.

Attitude: Present in the moment with reverence for nature, sensual, dancing in the rain, laughter, spontaneous hugs, exalted moments of epiphany, gratitude.

Textiles/elements: Driftwood, puka shells, sun-bleached wood, sand, cotton, linen, burlap, chamois, suede, leather, turquoise, petrified wood, amethyst, tin, pottery, bamboo.

Fashion: Surfer jewelry, baja hoodies, cotton and hemp fiber, linen, suede, stacked jewelry, showcasing turquoise and southwest stones, resort wear, thin layers, safari elements, light knits, denim, cargo, woven cowboy hats, leather belts, half boots, espadrilles, southwest/sonoran influences, bohemian textures/flow.

Movies to inspire: "Captain Ron," "Couples Retreat," "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," "Stealing Beauty," "Just Go For It," "A Perfect Getaway," "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom," "The Mummy," "Point Break."


I'm a combination of desert setting I'm in and my crazy lifetime love of the Pacific. I'm casual, bohemian, and I'd say of the stars who represent my vibe, Sheryl Crow is probably spot-on.
