I am obsessed with all things boho. It all started when I began looking for my wedding dress, in search of that fluid silhouette and free-flowing wild spirit of the late 1960s. I look to shops like Free People for inspiration, but unfortunately my wallet won’t always allow me to indulge!
At the weekend it was love at first sight for me when I saw this beauty of a dress in the window display of H&M in Hammersmith. When my husband pointed that dress out to me and said how ‘me’ it was, I just knew I had to have it.
At £14.99 this was a steal. For that price it is so beautifully made and fits like a dream. The dress is maxi-length, reaching right down to my ankles, with a split down each side and a tassel tie detail on the neckline. The sleeves are long with buttoned cuffs. The earthy Eastern-inspired print is embellished by jewel-toned blues and gold.
I’ve accessorised this dress with boho-inspired turquoise and silver jewellery to highlight the blues of the dress. The jewelled pendant from Oasis complements the pattern of the dress, as do these Indian-inspired sterling silver earrings. Silver-toned shoes help to uplift the look. Brown leather boots would go equally as well. The thing to complete the outfit would be a burgundy or brown suede or velvet jacket, but I don’t have one as of yet!
