{Boho} Football Fever

All my life I have wanted to be boho....so basically since I was like 20. 
I drool over every picture of Nicole Richie with her headwraps and effortlessly messy hair. 
And on the rare occasion Mary Kate Olsen decides to put down the Virginia Slims and Venti Starbucks and shop other places than her grandma's closet, I often admire her breezy caftans and oversized bags. 

So when my childhood-bestie-turned-famous-blogger-friend, Ilene, messaged me to model one of her illy Poppy Garlands as part of her Football Fever line, I jumped at the occasion! I'd seen these same headbands on the likes of Busy Bee Lauren and Casey Wiegand....you know...boho blogger royalty. No big.

Plus....football is like a HUGE deal in the south. So adorable accessories are basically critical. 
And since I'm not a huge fan of red lipstick, mixed prints or top-knots ("not a fan" can be translated "i could never pull that off")...football boho is something I was fairly certain I could do.

It also doesn't hurt to have a best friend that's a photographer to capture your boho coming out....if you will. 

So Kayla, "Poppy" and I set out on the streets of Columbia to rustle up some Boho Gamecock Fashion......

Unfortunately.....I have a large head and  ears that like to make an appearance when I'm trying to be all boho......so I ended up channeling Liv Tyler's Elf Maiden Arwen from Lord of the Rings instead of Nicole Richie (sorry Ilene)

However....even though I'm a Boho fail....my head has never had more fun. And I've decided this garland is an essential piece in my football wardrobe. Not to mention, the opportunities are endless. 
Tomorrow I might put this on, call it my fascinator and channel Kate Middleton. These headbands are serious fun (as is everything in her shop!)

My mother makes fun of me because my style fluctuates from Audrey, to punk, to boho. Meh...I like variety. These headbands are so cute tho. Think I'm gonna have to go look for an OSU one!

I could never ever pull off the boho look even though I desperately wanted too. I'm just not cool enough.
P.S. Is it bad that I spit out my coffee because I was laughing so hard at your Elf Arwen comment? It was HYSTERICAL!
