Confessions from a Boho Fashionista. 365 days of Summer: How to keep your California Soul All Year Round.

summerheartHey Boho Beauties,

Long hot days, road trips with our gal pals, and sun chasing on Cali’s best beaches are the best part of summertime. I’m dusting off my cut-offs and gypsy gear, and dreaming off all the special things that are going to happen under the heat of the boho sun. But I got to thinking: summertime isn’t just for summer! It helps a goddess out when the sun shines endlessly on her back, a lakefront cottage is never far, and weekend festivals are plentiful; But every gal who lives with intention knows that summer is a feeling and California is a mindset.

Here are my top 7 tips on how to keep your California soul all year round.

  1. Headstands – What do headstands and summertime have to do with one another? In the summertime we’re filled with endorphins and child-like wonder. Beach babes can literally feel the magic in the air. Headstands are a natural way to bring out the same type of chemical in the body, energize your soul, and will have you feeling like a child again.
  2. Spontaneity – There’s something about the heat of the summer that screams, “Go girl, do that thing you’ve been dreaming of!” Here’s the catch: there’s nothing stopping you from doing that thing all year round. Start practicing your special skills of spontaneity and see how totally fun it is!
  3. summer heart1Fashion – There’s so much to try out in the summer! From maxis to minis, and beach bags to tassles, a girl has got a lot of choice. But fashion is just as much fun in the winter and spring, so bring that same kind of whimsical wonder into your wardrobe, year round! I suggest Malas and moccassins as a trademark wardrobe piece for every summertime sister 😉
  4. Self Care – If you live in a cold climate, or your schedule doesn’t allow you time for the outdoors, it’s so important to bring the heart of the outdoors to your self-care regime! Take a bath with coconut candles, do a salt scrub, put on tiki music and meditate about the beauty of the beach. You’ll feel the spirit of the shore in no time!
  5. Hot Yoga – This type of yoga is every girls dream when the weather has you down, if you’re looking to tone up or get a better sleep, and of course, to feel the humidity of summertime! Check out a hot yoga studio near you to really reap all of the amazing benefits (trust me, you won’t regret it!)
  6. Travel – A boho gal has got to travel! From Bali to Australia, California to the Hawaiian Coast, there are so many places under the sun to see. But your travels don’t have to be far. It’s the idea of travel that will keep your California soul alive. Plan a trip with your besties to a local winery or spa. Find a fun yoga or meditation retreat and see what adventures might be waiting for you there!
  7. Vision Boarding – This is a very powerful practice for gypsy goddess and beach babes. In the summer, endorphins are wild and alive, which means our vision can be more clear. In colder or darker months it can be more of a challenge to keep the clarity of our dreams. This doesn’t mean your dreams aren’t still alive! You just need a little direction. Sit down with some colorful markers, inspiring pictures, and pretty paper, and envision all that you desire. It’s an instant way to feel good, remember your dreams and keep your California soul!

These are my favorite ways to keep my California soul alive, but tell me boho babes, what are yours? I know you’ve got some special ways to keep the summer sunshine with you all year round! Tell me all about it in the pink comment section above 😉
