Nautical Inspiration for June-uary: by guest blogger Lily Loves Local

Lately I’ve been hearing the term “June-uary” get thrown around these parts. Napa winters usually consist of drizzly days, foggy mornings, and freezing nights. This January, we are plagued with dry, sunny days that go on and on. The drought is really quite awful for many reasons, but I’m trying to embrace the positive side of things. We’re pulling out our summer dresses again, taking spontaneous trips to the beach, and having lots of mental confusion about what to wear and what to do with ourselves.

Back at Boho Lifestyle today, I decided to do a piece to celebrate feeling summery out of season – why not? There are a few new pieces in the shop that inspire me to take a January adventure to the beach: ombre linen scarves, handmade ceramics the color of the sea, and a new shipment of mineral-rich soaps which would be PERFECT in the bathroom of my imaginary beach house.

Something Soft, Something Scented, Something Shiny: by guest blogger Lily Loves Local

 

Handmade Brass Bowls from India - $22-$28.50

Handmade Brass Bowls from India – $22-$28.50

 

At the beginning of each new year, I like to start over. Sweep the floors, organize the closets, set the stage for a beautiful new year and get rid of last year’s dirt. I also love to help my space and wardrobe feel new with a few tricks. In collaboration with Boho Lifestyle, I’ll show you how to make your space feel fresh and new, using what you have at home or adding some new beautiful things to your abode.

 

 

 

Something Soft

Being soft and cozy is so important in winter- despite the sunny Napa days, the temperature can drop over 30 degrees in an evening! As a knitter, I have an army of knitted hats and scarves, but nothing beats a warm sumptuous cashmere or alpaca item. Now, I have never been one for a poncho, and there was even a phase in my life where I protested against them, but there is something so satisfying about cozying up in a cashmere poncho, sipping tea and reading a good book. Boho Lifestyle has ponchos that come from a Sherpa named Sherpa in Nepal. The diagonal lines are flattering and sophisticated when paired with a fitted black pant, tall boots and a statement necklace. At $95, it’s an investment piece, but the word on the street is, Nordstrom’s is selling them for $260. As usual, it’s best to shop local- and work directly with a sherpa.
