Crochet is something that has always been close to my heart. I grew up watching my extraordinary mother crochet intricate designs for hours on end, as though it was her own form of meditation. As a child I was always in awe of her skill and patience….and nothing has changed there. I was lucky enough to learn this art from her, so I know how challenging it can be. So when I wear handmade crochet designs, I feel that extra bit special, knowing how much time, love and energy went into creating it. Every boho goddess needs a little crochet in her life.

Here I have the honour of sharing a truly gorgeous piece from Sumika. The festival fringe top is the perfect fit and you get a little midriff show without it being too cropped. Wear it as a bikini top, with denim cut offs or your fave maxi skirt and don’t forget the flowers in your hair :) Check out Flower Gypsies for some beautiful designs…they make such a great range of flower crowns.

To this outfit I added my Lyloh sarong. Made from super soft Organic cotton jersey, dyed with indian almond leaves, creating a beautiful eco friendly sarong.

And a little extra something special from the divine Beauty in Numbers. These barefoot ‘Gypsy Feet’ crochet sandals were made by her lovely mother :) How cool is that! Just makes my heart so happy to share such lovely creations with you all :)

My second outfit features a beautiful Jen’s Pirate Booty dress. It’s one of those¬†easy summer boho dresses, super flattering and flowy and oh soooo comfortable. I could style this dress so many ways, though I was in the mood for simple silver jewels and a floppy wide brim hat.

I’m counting my blessings for all these beautiful handmade creations in my life. Each and every day I practice the art of appreciation. It can be for the simplest of things. And especially on those days where I feel completely snowballed and as though my entire universe has collapsed….these are the days I practice even harder. I remind myself that I am alive, that all I have is this moment. And that this moment is filled with an infinite amount of possibilities. I can choose love, joy, freedom, whatever I want. Sometimes I simply have to let go of my focus on the hurt, because it just extends the suffering, and I choose to see the great stuff, the beauty and the blessings, the wonder, the inspirations that surround me wherever I may be. Find them, practice the art of living and loving the moments. Life begins to mirror your internal world and more of the same will be created.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx
