I’m always up for anything that celebrates amazing successful woman; so when the chic store Atterley Road told me about their new campaign #ARWOMAN and asked who inspires me…I jumped at the opportunity.

Ever since I was in high school I’ve been a huge fan of Drew Barrymore’s free spirit. As a kid my bedroom walls were covered with teen magazine clippings, movie posters and her infamous Guess ads – I was obsessed with her beauty and fallibility. She was relatable and I admired her spunky and ever-changing style. The once precocious child actor in E.T. that went on to flash Letterman is now a respected producer with an incredible line of beauty products and her own wine label!

Who Inspires You? #ARWOMAN

The woman is amazing and someone who continues to inspire me and she’s definitely worthy of a #ARWOMAN hashtag.

About the #ARWOMAN campaign:

Empowered and empowering. That’s what makes an #ARWOMAN. We are inspired by all of the amazing women around us. Every. Single. Day. But what we really want to know is, who inspires you?

A Little Boho Goes A long Way

While the boho look is nothing new, it has experienced a resurgence in popularity recently with the help of some of today’s hottest celebrities (Nicole Richie, Drew Barrymore and Sienna Miller just to name a few).  Best of all, there’s no need to be a size 2 to get the boho vibe…something I know from personal experience!   Check out some of my tips on how to incoroporate a little boho into your Spring wardrobe with pieces from one of my favorite plus size fashion stores, Simply Be.

 

While the boho trend can be a tricky style to nail because it straddles the messy and overly sloppy look, the key is moderation.  There’s no need to wear it from head to toe (and for that matter there’s no need to wear any trend from head to toe). Below are a few tips:

A favorite way to add a little boho to your everyday look is a big, slouchy hobo bag There are a variety of hobo bags to choose from without breaking the bank.

Slouch Bag – $45

Scarves provide a simple and bold way to give an outfit that unstructured yet classy vibe.  There are a ton of lightweight scarves that are perfect for the warmer weather.

Scarf – $24

A maxi dress is an excellent and comfy option to get the boho look – particularly when paired with a blazer or leather jacket. The dress provides the boho part, and the jacket pulls it all together.

Maxi Dress – $73

Jewelry is the easiest and most fool proof way to add a little boho to your style.  Whether it’s long beaded chains, bangles or a pair of chandelier earrings you can’t go wrong.  Pair them with a white shirt to the office or with a tee during the day.

Bangles – $24

When it comes to shoes, the possibilities are endless.  A pair of slouchy boots, wedge heels, or braided sandals immediately come to mind.

Peep Toe Bootie – $57

So, whether your style is classic, modern, preppy or just straight up trendy, why not add a little boho to your look?

 

Celebrity Redo: Drew Barrymore

What is up with Drew’s closet lately?  Yes, she’s gorgeous and has great style, but it seems like her outfits have gone from cool and quirky to down right silly.  While this outfit isn’t terrible, it’s still a “off.”  The skinny jeans are overly rolled up and the shirt is totally shapeless.  I kept within her outfit’s “theme” but swapped out her button down for a more flattering scoop neckline that ties at the side.  I also kept her skinny jeans but threw in some fierce white platform sandals.  Hope you like it!  What do you think of Drew’s outfit?
