Chacha's Closet



Today I woke up late for work. So, so late that at the time I got off my bed I was supposed to be on my merry way to drop off my little boy at his babysitter's house. Imagine that.
I did get the chance to make coffee for the trip but didn't have time to put on one cent of makeup. But it's  not a big deal if I'm wearing big sunglasses a la Rachel Zoe or Nicole Richie (two fashion icons).

With the whole lateness and all,  I was able to put together a bohemian inspired look that I've been trying to master for ages.
I bought this beautiful and colorful, light as a scarf jacket/kimono cover up a long time ago, but it never looked "cool" enough on me, until today.
 I've seen lots of very fashion forward girls on Pinterest and some of the fashion blogs I follow and even Hollywood royalty but I could never nailed the boho, free spirited coolness this piece could bring to an outfit.

Being late inspired me to just throw on this whole outfit together. Should I thank
 my alarm for making me fashionably late?
My closet is still a mess, I haven't put away last year's Fall-Winter clothes yet, but it actually worked out that I didn't since cold weather season is around the corner. All I need to so is arrange, sort, hang and fold.
Below are some of my favorite stylish girls, wearing my outfit inspiration and myself inspired.
