While out for the night in Cadiz, I spotted a girl in a unique color combination that attracted my attention: I never thought caramel brown could look so amazing with modern cobalt and teal. Then, I noticed all of the bohemian elements that completed her unique look and decided to approach Monica and quickly snap a few shots of her outfit.

Elements of Monica’s Outfit
1. Oversized Shirt
I love how Monica wears her oversized shirt as a jacket – it creates a very casual, relaxed look, with a subtle touch of vintage and boho style.
2. Short Cowboy Boots
As cute as cowboy boots are, many of us still feel challenged to rock them without looking too old-school. If you are in the same boat, why not start with a shorter and darker pair like Monica’s? I love their subtle bohemian style, and they basically go with anything.
Another one of her vintage elements! Monica said she doesn’t own a lot of accessories but she always tries to at least put on a necklace or a bracelet to complete her look. This pretty leather cuff bracelet goes with everything and adds to her outfit’s boho-vintage vibe.
