There’s nothing I like more than a little boho chic, and it goes back to my hippy youth I guess. In those days I had strange fashion sense, I can remember dyeing a sheet, cutting a hole in the top and stringing a piece of rope around my waist before trotting off to a disco. I must have looked like someone out of the Bible 😉
Actually, I’d love to know in the comments what your most bizarre youthful fashion statement might once have been too!
These days with the amazing choice we have online and offline, there’s no need to be quite so creative with the scissors because with a flick of the mouse we can choose and put together looks which might inspire us to go looking for similar items in shopping malls (or sometimes if you’re like me, in Salvos) or maybe (if we’re lucky) get the credit card out of its cradle and shop online.
Boho clothes for travelling
I’m about to head off to the UK to visit my family and was looking around for ideas to bring to you from my own wardrobe for long haul plane travel, but when I discovered the boho look items online below I thought that they would suit not only a plane trip (because they would be comfy) but they would also be easy to wear holiday style too.
I’m not one for baring my arms if I can help it, so the lightweight jacket would be just right for wearing in the airport terminals and for the English weather, but if it was really hot by chance, well begone with jiggly-upper-arm pride and just slap on the sunlotion!
Tip: For plane rides I always pack my soft Turkish pashmina which I can wrap around my shoulders if the air conditioning is a bit bitey and it’s always useful as an extra layer or dash of style if needed on arrival.
The sandals would allow room for swelling feet and ankles on the plane and be comfortable for walking in too. And that tote, well just the right size for my bloggie paraphernalia, iPad, phone, hairbrush and lippy (on arrival).

I’m not affiliated to any of the stores you can find links to below – but enjoy browsing, maybe buying, and definitely have fun creating your own looks, won’t you?
Meanwhile, posting from me might be a bit erratic over the next few weeks, but I’ll be bringing you ideas and fun from merry England whenever I can stop gallivanting in the gorgeous Devon countryside, be torn away from devouring Devonshire cream teas and sit down at the keyboard.
Please do tell me what do you think? Would you wear any of these items below? Would you change anything about this look? Or tell me, what are your go-to clothes for a plane trip or holiday?
