wearing : bohemian traders

My friend Em recently opened a little online store that stocks all things bespoke, bohemian and fair-trade from India. Bohemian Traders is brimming with colour and block-printed pattern; ideal for those who like to seamlessly blend beauty and practicality.

A few years ago I spent time living in an ashram and poppy pants, light cotton tops and scarves quickly became my uniform. I revisited this incredibly comfortable wardrobe when we were in Bali and I must admit, it works particularly well with motherhood. Loose fitting cotton voile pants are best worn slightly high on the waist with a simple, classic top - flowy enough for yoga, pretty enough for a cafe date, they're even light enough to fall asleep in (I speak from experience).

I wear: vintage cotton top / poppy pants (I'm also loving this skirt) / flower child scarf / watch c/o the horse

  9. Hi Jodie, lovely serene pictures, love your sense of style, you evoke a carefree and calm energy :-) can I ask, the print in Poets bedroom of a mama wearing a baby in a sling....is that drawn from a photo of you and Poet or was that a print you happened to come across? Its gorgeous x

    1. Thanks for your kind words. The mama + baby was a custom portrait by Rebekka Seale - one I'll cherish forever. You can see it here - http://www.practisingsimplicity.com/2012/08/sakura-bloom-sling-diaries-history.html x
