Boho Inspired Preppy Casual - Is That a Thing? I'm Making It One...

One trend I am absolutley loving this season is boho! It's not just at Free People & Anthro this year either, some amazing pieces are popping up in the least expected places - like Loft!  I wouldn't really go as far as to say that I have a boho personality, and I'm not really into crochet crop tops & floral headpieces, but I do love the laid back style of flowy pants with sandals. 

I initially fell in love with this look at my friend Kristine's 4th of July party last year, when the lead singer of the band that was playing wore these amazing printed beach pants with a tank, jean jacket, and sandals. I really wish I'd taken a picture of her because it would have been pinned on a Pinterest a million times by now. She was gorgeous & an awesome mix of boho & laid back preppy casual. I immediately started my hunt for similar pants to recreate her look, but had no luck whatsoever.

Fast forward to January, when I get my daily Zulily email & happen to click on the Roxy sale. OMG - there they were! They probably aren't the exact same pair, but they were exactly what I'd been looking for! I snatched them right up & figured I'd stash them until I had the baby & hopefully be able to wear them by our beach trip in August. 

Fast forward again to Monday, I'm sitting at my desk when my friend Kristine walks in wearing this... 

everything is Loft - I'm not kidding - she has an addiction
I loved it! And of course, it immediately made me think of my Roxy pants just sitting at home waiting for me to wear them! I decided that I'm not too huge yet, so I'd give it a shot & see if they fit when I got home. They fit - and OMG - these pants are the comfiest things I've ever worn. They put yoga pants to shame! I knew that I had to put an outfit together in them ASAP - so that's exactly what I did for school yesterday...

I was super comfy all day long and the first thought that popped into my mind this morning after I got dressed was, if I was traveling somewhere for Spring Break, this is what I'd be wearing! Expect to see lots of more of these pants, because as long as they fit around my belly, I'll be wearing them. Hopefully without a cardigan because the weather has finally warmed up... #wishfulthinking

And not one to be left out on the trends, here is Ella's version of "boho inspired preppy casual" that she wore yesterday too...
