The second weekend in a row I decided to step out of my comfort zone in a boho chic style. And you know what, I’m slowly falling in love with this chic style with a boho twist.
I’m slowly starting to believe my style can handle some boho. Well, if the ruffles in an ugly colour count. Probably not. Though, this is how I understand a bohemian fashion. Everything that is ugly and came into my closet by accident, mostly after my shopping spree in Madrid, fit the boho criteria for me. And giving me an excuse to let all the ugly clothes in the closet.
Anyway, it’s weekend, and it’s time for me to experiment with my style. So, here I am, wandering through the city in this ugly skirt, that has a slight boho touch. Because, you know, F* off my weekend style experimenting, I still think this is the most bohemian I could go.
Thinking better, there is a legit way I could push myself and wear a 100 % bohemian outfit this weekend. After all, it’s a masquerade weekend. Wait, I just got an idea for my masquerade costume.
I’m leaving my masquerade costume idea for a masquerade carnival in Venice that I’m going to this Sunday. Ps. Make sure you go to my Instagram profile on Sunday. I will be live from Venice! Don’t worry, in case you miss it, you can still subscribe to my newsletter (make sure you apply for the weekly roundups) and read and see all about my little trip to Venice in my Sunday newsletter.
MY WEEKEND CHIC BOHO STYLE
Today I’m wearing, the ugliest skirt from my closet. I’m quite sure this is the most hideous skirt you could find in my closet. I bought this skirt years ago, together with the boho dress I wore last weekend. In case you missed my first boho chic outfit, you should check it here. Perhaps the boho twist was a bit stronger last weekend.
Same as the last weekend, I decided to put on something ugly that was hidden in the bottom drawer of my closet and make it work for a boho chic style. To make it look like a legit boho chic outfit, I’m wearing it with my beautiful brown over the knee boots. Admittedly, this suede OTK boots bring more bohemian style than the skirt itself.
Undoubtedly, I failed the bohemian challenge this time. As this outfit turned out much more chic than boho. So let’s just call it a chic boho outfit. You are good with that, right?
HOW TO TURN A BOHO TO A CHIC BOHO
Hence I’m better turning boho into a chic boho, not to say elegant. I should better head on to the new week and give you advice how to wear your favourite bohemian clothes to your everyday errands. Moreover, I better tell you how to wear your ruffled boho skirt to work next week.
It’s quite easy actually. All you have to do is to mind the colours you are wearing. Make sure the colours from the bohemian piece of clothing you are wearing, match the colours of other clothes, shoes and accessories you are wearing. As you can see, I combined the black, green, ivory and brown pattern of my skirt with a black blouse and blazer, brown OTK boots and gloves and ivory coat. What about the green? Well, this one matches my eyes. But it could easily match my bag.
Obviously, my chic boho outfit couldn’t make it to the office this time. To make it fit the office, I would have to swap the brown over the knee boots for either a black pair of OTK boots or sheer black tights and black ankle boots. Though, regarding the length of my skirt, the black boots would be a better option. Sounds too, complicated? Not to worry. I made a fashion cheat sheet for you. I will send it too you if you want.

In case you are wondering, I’m strolling in the centre of Ljubljana. I’m walking down the Stritarjeva ulica (Stritar’s Street), then crossing the Tripple bridge, standing in the middle of the Prešernov Square. And then walking away from this Square to Čopova ulica. Where I’m making a quick stop to buy so claimed best doughnuts in the town. That have just been backed, by the way. Obviously, we ate them straight away, as they were warm, and didn’t have time to make the prayers by taking a snap of them. You know what I mean.
And then walking all the way to Slovenska ulica (Slovene Street). And finally, sit down to the bench, and well, yes taking a bunch of selfies too, at the Kongresni Square. All that before the rain which made my chic boho outfit get wet.
