Photos taken at Roman Baths, Bath
Am I about to tell your fortune? Am I with some sort of traveling, cart- dwelling mob?
Nope: Just doing my Seventies thing! Winter style!
I think that both my enthusiastic sarcasm and seriously lame puns are a result of my jet lag. Please bare with me whilst I continue to defrost from England’s brrr-utal weather. (See! I did it again!)
Although I may be back in the el Paradiso that is Cairns, I thought that I should share with you one of my favorite cold weather looks from when I was visiting my family over in England. A few days after we landed, Jake and I traveled down to visit my sister (who I hadn’t seen for 2 years!) and she really enjoyed playing tour guide in her local area.
We explored the stunning city of Bath, which, like Rome, was built upon seven hilltops. Seriously, with this architecture, who needs to jet off to Italy?
The undeniable highlight of the day had to be exploring the Roman Baths. Dating back to 60-70 AD (which is really hard to comprehend), the baths are heated by a natural spring which bubbles up from the ground. The Baths were used as both a public bathing facility and a Temple.
In modern day, the Baths act as an educational ‘time travel’ back to the Roman times and upon walking around the naturally-heated pools, you can easily imagine the Roman Noble’s strutting around in their Toga’s, wine in hand.
I know I’m babbling… gotta love jet lag! So let’s move onto my Winter boho dressing tips, before, you, or I, or both of us, fall asleep.

3 Tips For Boho Winter Dressing
1. Go For Texture
Although the boho trend may be associated with the entire spectrum of the rainbow, stick to a neutral palette for a more Wintry vibe and, instead, add hippy elements through contrasts between different textures. Knit, suede and denim are all a huge yes.
2. Shape Does It
Although January may be too cold for printed dresses, it’s not too cold to throw some serious Seventies shapes. Flared jeans and flared sleeves are both great options for the cooler months.
3. Put A Scarf On It
An entire outfit can be transformed by a Seventies Boho scarf. Check out my ultimate scarf styling guide for more tips.
