You know how little sisters are notorious for borrowing their older sisters’ clothes? While that may ring true for most, in my life it’s exactly the opposite. There are probably five or more of Nina’s tops hanging in my closet (oops, the cat’s outta the bag!).
But when you have a little sister who’s so stylish, it’s hard to keep your mitts off of her stuff. Whenever I spot a new shopping bag in the house, I make a b-line for the newly-purchased item and try it on immediately (she loves to hate me for this). I don’t know what I’ll do when I lose her to Miami University in a few weeks…

Nina met me after work on Friday and we wandered to Lumenocity Village at Washington Park to browse the local vendors and do sisterly things. And guys, let me just say I’m so happy she finally agreed to make an appearance on the blog. It wasn’t easy getting her to commit, but cookies are the best form of bribery. Trust me. Especially when they’re made to look like cute puppies and mermaids. A special thanks to the BonBonerie for doing what you do best. This post couldn’t have been possible without you.
After we scarfed down our cookies (I may have dropped a piece on the ground and ate it anyway, but I believe in the 5-second rule), I asked Nina to describe her style. She looked at me, laughed and said, “Natalie, it’s obviously boho-chic.”
You’re not going to see her throwing up the peace sign in any of these photos, and she’s not wearing a floral crown, but she sure knocked it out of the park with her gold leaf earrings and gladiator sandals. So, without further ado, check out my stylish sister’s rendition of practical boho-chic festival wear, perfect for the remaining summer days.
And of course, this post wouldn’t be complete without some blooper photos. Because in our lives, the goofy moments outweigh the posed ones, and I have plenty of photos on my phone to prove it. We’re clearly cut from the same weird cloth.
