When we hear back to school, we think of having to buy backpacks, school supplies and clothing for our kids. But the truth is, September is the biggest fashion month of the year and it is the perfect time to start a new season in style. Whether you are in school yourselves, have kids in school, or just like to drool over back to school outfits, we have some great inspiration for your own practical looks.
September is a tricky month to dress for because the air starts to cool down but there can still be gorgeous, warm days. Plus, we are clinging onto our sandals for dear life as we know we won’t be baring our toes for another 9 months. The key to early fall dressing is layers. Slouchy sweaters or cardigans over shorts, capris or skirts looks fabulous and right on trend. On cooler nights, slip on little booties with your maxi dress. Lastly, use jewelry to add pops of colour as we transition into a new season and revamp your look with a few key accessories.
Fashion definitely works in cycles and this spring/summer 2014 we have seen a strong retro, bohemian flare in fashion once again. The exact same thing goes for jewelry. All the street style pictures continue to show a string bohemian flare. “Boho” and “boho chic” are two hot terms in the fashion world due to the 60’s & 70’s influences we see in clothing and jewelry. At Beck & Boosh we love a great boho-chic look!
This spring/summer season, one of our three collections was Bohemian Beauty, which has been one of our hottest trends to date. The bohemian style breathes summer, with flowy clothing, and layered jewelry. This season, some of our most popular pieces have been made from macrame, which is a form of textile weaving through a distinct knotting technique and was very popular in the 70’s. The Beck & Boosh macrame pieces were all handmade in India and the handwork is incredible. The beautiful pops of turquoise adds the perfect pop of colour with any look.
A fellow Canadian, Whitney, from the fantastic blog Whit By Chance, recently stylized our macrame pieces, as well as our boho wrap ring and studded friendship bracelet. Whitney has amazing style and has created an instablog fan base that is truly amazing. With her Beck & Boosh pieces, she showed how any piece of jewelry can be worn a variety of ways, to create a unique look! We are totally in love with her edgy style in these pictures and it has inspired us to try out new outfits with our macrame pieces!
We hope that Whitney’s style inspires you to try out new looks with your own jewelry. Accessories make all the difference in your look and a few small changes can completely revamp your outfit!

At Beck & Boosh we LOVE a great bangle set. They truly make the perfect bracelets and on any given day, either Beck or Boosh are sporting a bangle set. Bangle sets allow you to create your own arm party combos, mix things up a bit or if feeling less inspired, the stacked look is already created for you.
This summer we brought back our bright coloured bangle sets and they are the perfect summer accessory. They add a pop of colour and are an excellent accent for any summer festival look. When approached by Melissa, a fashion blogger, to stylize some of our jewelry, we couldn’t find a better piece of jewelry for her chic, functional style.
Melissa is from the Maritimes, is a busy mom with a full-time teaching job (boy, can we ever relate!) and has her own fashion blog called Sigh…Gush…Gasp. Last week she stylized our pink Bangle Set and we think she looks fab! Be sure to check out her blog and follow her for great style tips and inspiration!
Mix up your bangle sets and try new combinations! Mix the colours and have fun! Featured Jewelry from Beck & Boosh.

It’s official, our summer festival season has begun. This season is extra special for us because we have hired our first full-time staff. We bought a van and the staff are hitting the road this summer selling Beck & Boosh jewelry all over the Maritimes. We feel blessed to have found such awesome gals and we know that you will love them as much as we do. You will be seeing a lot of them this summer and make sure when you see them at an event, you pop over to say ‘hi’!
Meet Kaylee and Cassie, our Beck & Boosh gals. They have amazing spirits, great work ethic and both have fantastic style!
Cassie hails from Amherst and is a recent graduate from Environmental Science at Dal/AC. She loves to play in the dirt and cares a lot about our Earth, and quite frankly, she is pretty awesome. Plus, she is stinkin’ cute and has amazing mermaid hair that we all dream about having.
Kaylee is from Tatamagouche and like we have said before, that tiny town creates gorgeous people. Kaylee recently returned from a four-month backpacking trip around New Zealand and we were lucky enough to grab her when she returned. She is one beautiful, hard-working girl who loves the great outdoors and seriously knows how to thrift shop.
These girls have been best friends for years!
Here are the girls in front of the Beck & Boosh van that they are touring in all summer long!
Here they are at their first festival together as employees of Beck & Boosh. This was taken at Privateer Days in Liverpool, NS and they ROCKED it!
The girls will be touring all summer and we can’t wait for you to meet them!
Here is our full summer tour schedule:
Hope to see you at one of these events! Follow on Facebook or Twitter for the up to date list of where we will be each weekend!
It’s that time of year again! Hot weather, the beach, camping, backyard barbecues, road trips and messy hair! I love the summer more than any time of the year but as working women on the road, Beck & I need to find stylish ways to wear our hair in a hurry. Wearing head scarves is a great way to try out new styles and to just get creative. When camping or during your travels, you can still have a great hair day with a head scarf. Whether it’s for ladies night on the patio, a family barbecue or a summer festival, try out wearing a head scarf this season!
At Beck & Boosh we are always coming up with fun ways to wear a head scarf. Use our pictures for inspiration or follow our videos for a step by step guide.
