Wanderlust Whistler: The Must Haves

explore-702x398Heading to Wanderlust Whistler this weekend? You lucky devil. Situated between two of Canada’s most beautiful mountains (Whistler and Blackcomb), Wanderlust Whistler is a yogi’s dream. Fresh mountain air, epic music, amazing yoga instructors, we could gush about it all for hours. But we’ll spare you. Instead we’ve put together a list of must-haves! Much more useful right?

IMG_59321. Mala Beads. We may be biased, but word on the street is mala beads are the latest and greatest trend to hit yoga since luon. Wear your intention loud and proud this weekend! We’ve even got a Wanderlust Mala and Bracelet intentionally crafted by us to embody the spirit of Wanderlust Festival. The ultimate souvenir? We think yes.

2. Bright, Bold, Tights. Black is so basic. This summer it’s all about being bold. That’s why we are obsessed with our Teeki tights. Not only are these bad boys super stylish and comfortable, they’re also made from recycled plastic bottles. Eco chic? Yes please.

3. Summer Scarves. Versatility is your friend at Wanderlust. So are summer scarves. These light weight, bold patterned scarfs don’t just have to be worn around your neck. Bandanas, head wraps, sarongs, the sky’s the limit. Style is all about being creative after all.

4. Your Soul Mat. A yogi’s relationship with their mat is very serious. You sweat together. You savasana together. You balance together. You grow stronger together. Find a yoga mat you really love and bring it with you everywhere. We’re huge fans of Manduka mats. Crafted using simple, enduring, natural and whenever possible, renewable resources, these mats mean business.

5. A Beautiful Journal. A weekend spent meditating, dancing, laughing and yoga-ing up a storm in one of the world’s most breathtaking places, don’t tell us you won’t be inspired. When inspiration hits, be ready. That’s why we recommend bringing a beautiful journal or notebook with you. When your mind’s not busy be blown by Wanderlust Whistler epicness try and take a few minutes to jot your ideas down. You’ll thank us later. Trust.

Styling Intentions with the Babes at Skinny Fat Girl Diary!

We here at Skinny Fat Girl Diary, are so thrilled to be featured on Bohodaily.com… A place that celebrates green juice, a healthy lifestyle, and agrees that the best way to explore life… is in your yoga pants! We discovered this community of goddesses after falling in love with Tiny Devotions’ scarves; handmade works of art, both stylish and practical. But more than fabric, they inspire us to focus on our intention. The scarf is a colorful reminder during a hectic day, to breathe, enjoy the moment, and reconnect– just what we need at the SFG Diary.

We are three health fanatics living in LA, with crazy work schedules – all while, cooking, yoga-ing and bedazzling for our blog. It’s overwhelming what we strive to accomplish in an hour, day or week… and we know we aren’t alone! That’s why we created a space to find the silver lining along life’s journey. Why cry, when you can bake vegan-inspired carrot cake and laugh together?

Here’s three different ways to style your intentions…

Jackie, the brunette amongst blondes, embraces the bohemian look… it’s sexy, laid-back and looks fabulously effortless.  When I saw their hipster scarf, it was love at first sight!  My first fashion rule is “comfort,” so any way I can jazz up a simple outfit with something stylish… I’m in! The Hipster scarf makes me feel like I can conquer anything, and not to mention look pretty chic while doing it… it even makes my yoga pants look inspired!

Lauren seems to never stop running… that is until she saw the Prana Del Mar scarf. I’m absolutely obsessed with bright colors this summer. Until recently, I never really embraced my body type and used to hide it behind lots of dark colors. Something shifted after a couple month in hot yoga rooms and I became grateful to be strong. So, I’m embracing my sense of adventure with bright teal jewelry, pinks, cut-offs and my Prana Del Mar scarf in tow.

Valorie never sleeps. Seriously… this girl is like the energizer bunny– she does it all (until 4 am) and still looks fabulous! Summer is usually hotter than Haiti but thankfully in Los Angeles, summer evenings tend to get pretty chilly– especially close to the water! I’m all about laid-back California style—splashes of color and a white jean are the perfect beach-side combo. This Sanibel scarf is seasonal perfection, glowing with hues of pink and orange… Colors are a reflection of your attitude; I’m staying in the spirit of summer by staying happy and active in bright, light colors!

From Bali to Bohemia: My Top 10 Favorite Gypsy Inspired Pieces.

8eXeXWJsWjF8AYKoeWrOM7iS8QwpeQLW6eeT8jXknYg,Jl1Ida35HF4q7WXL-9Rzfv7jVUOQCf1OyN2me5MxHBQ,_aZXQ_hX-HbwvC-wUrFzsaZJwRQxHgm9vg3sKJfjtfsHey Boho Beauties,

It’s every gypsy babes right to be fashionably free. We’ve got wild hearts and souls that roam free, so it’s only natural that our beautiful bohemian wardrobes should be a reflection of our spirit. If you’ve been to Morocco, sailed the Central American coast, or bought crystals from the best Thai markets, your dresser is probably super boho like mine. This season, I have some personal faves that really light my fire. Let’s talk about getting our gypsy on from Bali, straight to Bohemia.

Here are my top 10 favorite gypsy inspired pieces:

c0cf67920a01a11a78dd0d3aae0f5cd61: Fringe: Fringe, fringe, and more fringe. Ok, I may have gone a little crazy there. Let’s talk fringe. Chose your fringe wisely, babes. Find a beautiful leather fringed piece, like fringed thong sandles or a crop vest, and pair it with something simple to really make your look pop.

2.  Kate Hudson 1970’s Jeans: These are timeless. I found a beautiful pair of fitted, light washed, slightly flared, 7 jeans in a vintage store in Gastown, Vancouver last summer, and I almost died. They fit me in the best boho way, and they’re the perfect match for my Mala, my little white tee, and my crotcheted vest (and festival season of course.)

3.  Scarves: Every gypsy gal needs a soft, bright, patterned scarf. Your scarf is there for you to adorn your mermaid locks, wear as a beach cover, tie to your leather side bag, or lay on the ground when your taking a little break to lounge. This is a serious staple in your wardrobe and in your life, so pick a few in your favourite colours and patterns that go with your wardrobe.

4. Boho Footwear-Gladiator or Tasseled Sandals and or Ankle Boots: A goddess has got to rock her footwear. Try these ultra chic 70’s style options to really get your gypsy style going.

5. Maxi Skirts: You can pair a geometric pattern or brightly colored maxi skirt with a simple tank to play up the length of the piece. If a skirt cuts off your body type, try a maxi dress as an alternative. Maxi dresses and skirts really give us a chance to express ourselves, and set our boho hearts free. Have you ever noticed how they flow in the wind as you walk? You won’t be disappointed with this purchase, boho girl.

4499ac99cfbbc103e1756cf2af9805386. Cut Offs- There are SO many versions of the cut-off short. I promise you’ll find the right cut off that looks beautiful on your boho bod. Try on a million pairs before giving up on the cut off. This uber stylish, bohemian find will match everything once you find the right pair for you. Go to a vintage store and find the best ones for your bod, or get an old pair of jeans and make your own!

7. Versatile Vest- This is a must have. From faux fur, to chrocheted beauties, there’s a vest out there that’s calling your name and I can’t wait for you to find the right one. Brightly coloured, or cut off crop vests also look fab with a soft tee and maxi skirt, the options are endless in a gypsy wardrobe world, so have fun with it!

8. Head Wraps and Hair Bands- Head wraps are a bold and brave choice. But when a yogi gal rocks a head wrap she looks seriously fierce. If you’re travelling, like we often do, it serves as a practical prop as well. Chose a beautiful head wrap to pull off the ultimate, 70’s freestyle look.

dcb4d5b21cf56441d865398285cb262a9. Floppy Brimmed Hat- The floppy brimmed hat is the ultimate free and femme look. It shouts delicate and gypsy all at once. There are several styles of floppy brimmed hat, so try on many different styles before you find the best one for you.

10. Brigit Bardot Sunglasses- A large sunglass a-la 1960 tops off your gypsy look. Off course, a boho girl never hides, you’re simply shading your beautiful eyes and looking cool while you do it. Find the perfect pair of staple Bardot shades to top off your gypsy look.

Dressing like a boho babe is totally fun, so go out there and pick up a couple of these gypsy inspired pieces, bellas, and start creating magic! What are your fave fashionable pieces? We’re always looking for new ways to dress up our wardrobe, and we love sharing 😉 Tell us in the comments below how you do gypsy! The most important gypsy accessory is attitude, so remember that you’re beautiful beyond your wildest imagination, and let that shine out through your fashionable gypsy garb!
