Summer must-haves for every mama
1000 Hours Outside
It’s June — which for most of the US means that Summer is *unofficially* here — and it’s the perfect time for you to get outside with your kids. Spending time outdoors with your kids is so beneficial, but sadly, on the decline. Blame it on TV, smart phones, or video games — the average American child spends five to eight hours a day in front of a digital screen. The repercussions of too much screen time, at the expense of unstructured play in nature are detrimental to the well-being of children. So this year, the team at Bohemian Mama challenges you to spend 1,000 hours outside.

Easy Outdoor Summer Workouts
The best part about summer is that all of our daily routines can now be done in the glow of the sun (but not without our trusty SPF 50 face sunscreen, of course). We’re talking patio happy hours, rooftop lunch breaks, and finally escaping the gym. The golden rule of summer is that you have to say goodbye to treadmills and ellipticals, but in case that leaves you a little bit lost, we’ve gathered some outdoor workout ideas so you can break a sweat while soaking up every second of summer. And of course, we had to grab a few athleisure styles to go along with each option!
There’s a reason why swimming is one of the best exercises that you can do for your body — the constant movement gets your heart rate up and the resistance of the water helps build your muscles, all while keeping your body and your joints safe. Swimming laps at the gym is already a step up from a boring cardio routine, but if you have access to a lake, ocean, or even outdoor pool, you won’t even feel like you’re working out. Check out our new Boys + Arrows swimwear to keep showing off your style while you’re at it.
Now that bike sharing is a thing, going on bike rides just became so much easier. It’s such a great form of cardio, burns fat quickly, and gets your legs in tip-top shape. Now that you don’t have to go out and drop hundreds of dollars on a bike that you have to frequently maintain and store every winter, this is about as easy as can be. It’s also a great way to explore your city in a new way! If you're worried about spending the rest of the day sweaty after a bike ride, just make sure you pack your YUNI Shower Sheets so you can freshen up the second your ride is over.
Outdoor Sports Leagues
In case you haven’t noticed, we are all about workouts that don’t feel like you’re working out. And at the top of that list is joining an outdoor sports league. Our favorite is beach volleyball — the resistance from the sand is great for your legs, and you’ll keep your heart rate up the whole time. Grab your favorite gals for a night of playing around instead of grabbing happy hour (or grab happy hour afterward), or join a league to meet new friends in your city!
Yoga in the Yard
When it comes to meditation and grounding yourself, doing it outside takes your zen to an entirely different level. Find a yoga studio near you that offers outdoor yoga, or keep an eye out for special summer events — a lot of parks will offer yoga classes. You can also work out on your own time, and run through your favorite yoga poses in the backyard.
Park Strength Training
We’ve covered cardio, but don’t think that you still have to confine yourself to the gym in order to keep working on building strength. Find a park and all of a sudden you'll have the tools and the space that you need for outdoor strength training.

We're gonna party like it's the Fourth of July
We still aren’t sure how “4th of July” is even in our vocabulary right now, considering it was just March a few weeks ago (or at least that’s how it feels). But here we are. Summer has officially begun, and it's time to celebrate. That means a couple of days off of work, a sunny day, and all of the tips you need to host the ultimate 4th of July party.
Let’s really get back to the basics of summer. Namely, those weirdly delicious red, white, and blue Bomb Pops that made us a sticky mess in summers past. That’s right, we’re stocking our freezers with the old favorite, but we’re upping the ante this time around with champagne. This is the easiest of the cocktails we’re whipping up for our patriotic party, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be the most Insta-worthy.
- Box of Bomb Pops
- Bottle of Champagne
1. Put the popsicles in a glass with the stick facing out.
2. Fill the glasses with bubbly. Voilà!
Firecracker Jell-O Shots
No good party is complete without some good old-fashioned Jell-O shots. Or at least, that’s what we thought in college, but the second we saw these cuties we knew we couldn't pass them up. They’re a bit more involved since you have to make them layer by layer, but the effort will be worth it since they double as a sweet treat after dinner. Plus, you can also make a booze-free batch for the littles.
- 3 c. vodka
- 1 box blue Jell-O
- 1 box red Jell-O
- 3 envelopes of unflavored gelatin
- 3 c. boiling water
- 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
- 1 jar maraschino cherries, drained
- Pour 1 cup of vodka into a large mixing bowl and sprinkle ½ of an envelope of unflavored gelatin on top, then let it sit for 2 minutes.
- Add in the blue Jell-O, pour in 1 cup of boiling water, and whisk together until the gelatin is dissolved.
- Let it cool for 5 minutes, then pour the mixture into small shooter glasses until each is ⅓ of the way full.
- Chill for 1 hour.
- Pour 1 cup of vodka into a large mixing bowl and sprinkle 2 envelopes of unflavored gelatin on top, then let it sit for 2 minutes.
- Pour in 1 cup of boiling water, and whisk together until the gelatin is dissolved.
- Pour in the sweetened condensed milk and stir until it’s fully mixed.
- Let it cool for 5 minutes, then pour the mixture on top of the blue layer until the glasses are ⅔ of the way full.
- Chill for 1 hour.
- Pour 1 cup of vodka into a large mixing bowl and sprinkle ½ of an envelope of unflavored gelatin on top, then let it sit for 2 minutes.
- Add in the red Jell-O, pour in 1 cup of boiling water, and whisk together until the gelatin is dissolved.
- Let it cool for 5 minutes, then fill the rest of each glass with the mixture.
- Chill for 1 hour.
When all of the Jell-O shots have set, add a cherry on top for decoration and get to celebrating!
We’ve all seen this modern marvel on Pinterest, but if you’re anything like us, you took one look, thought “I don't have 10 hours to dedicate to carving watermelons,” and moved on. Lucky for you, we’ve done the research and we can tell you that it’s super easy and you can be sure it'll be the star of the event. The only real prep work you’ll have to do is ordering a spigot so you can easily dispense the drinks, but of course, Amazon has your back.
- 1 seedless watermelon
- 1 bottle (750 ml) of your favorite rosé
- 1 ½ c. orange vodka
- Cut a thin slice from the bottom of the watermelon rind, without cutting into the flesh, to give it a flat bottom to keep it sitting upright.
- Carve out a circle in the top to create a lid.
- Remove the lid, and then using an electric hand mixer or immersion blender, blend up all of the insides until completely pureed.
- Pour the watermelon puree into a separate cup, straining out pulp and seeds first.
- Insert the spigot, then pour the watermelon juice, wine, and vodka back into the watermelon.
- Refrigerate for 2 hours and then serve.
We all know that the entire purpose of the 4th of July is to enjoy as many hot dogs and handfuls of potato chips as you possibly can, so we aren’t here to tell you otherwise. All we’re saying is that you can also include some America-themed appetizers and desserts to the lineup.
This is another fun Pinterest-style treat, but considering how simple and quick it is to make, we couldn’t leave it out. They’re bursting with summer flavor and will be perfect to pass around before the rest of the snacks are ready to be served. The kiddos will love that they get some marshmallows out of the deal, and who doesn't love eating off of a skewer? We love serving them up with the American flag design, but you can also alternate berries and marshmallows for a simpler red, white, and blue design.
- 1 package blueberries
- 1 package raspberries
- 1 bag mini marshmallows
- On the first 5 skewers, put 4 blueberries, one mini marshmallow, one raspberry, one more mini marshmallow, and one more raspberry.
- On the next 7 skewers, alternate 4 raspberries and 3 marshmallows, to create a striped effect.
- Line them up with the blueberries in the top left corner (hello, stars!) and then finish the flag with the raspberry/marshmallow skewers.
- Add the rest of the berries and 'mallows to the remaining kabobs so you have plenty of extras.
We are all about a good watermelon salad, especially since we usually only get them when we are spending way too much money at a nice restaurant. But that's not the case any longer! This refreshing summer salad is as easy as it is delicious, and allows for customization so all of your guests are happy.
- 1 baby watermelon
- ½ c. fresh mint, chopped
- ¼ c. red onion, thinly sliced
- 12 oz. cherry tomatoes, halved
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 2 Tbsp. lime juice
- 1 tsp. pure honey
- Salt and pepper (to taste)
- Crumbled feta
- Cut the watermelon into bite-size chunks, and top with the fresh mint, onion, and tomatoes.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together olive oil, lime juice, honey, salt, and pepper.
- Toss watermelon mixture with the dressing, and sprinkle the crumbled feta on top.
- Serve and enjoy!
Surprise, surprise — in case you didn't yet realize it, we love bringing in that red, white, and blue scheme wherever we possibly can. And we also love including cheese in every meal we eat. And when we bring those two passions together, we get ourselves a fun little wheel of baked brie and fruit.
- 1 wheel of brie
- 6 strawberries, sliced
- ½ c. blueberries
- ¼ c. orange juice
- 2 tsp. honey
- Crackers for dipping (we love pretzel crackers most, but you can also sweeten things up with graham crackers)
- Preheat oven to 350°, and cut off the top rind of the brie.
- Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the brie is completely melted and bubbling.
- While the brie is baking, place the strawberries and blueberries in separate bowls, divide the orange juice and honey evenly between the bowls, and toss until all of the berries are coated.
- When the brie is done baking, immediately arrange the fruit in an American flag design on top and serve.
The sun is shining, the days are long, and the beach is calling your name. Now that our favorite season is finally here, it’s time to fill your wardrobe with nothing but one-pieces and bikinis because let’s be honest, that’s what we’ll all be living in for the next three months. And in case you aren’t sure where to start, we’ve gathered up our summer swim favorites for you.
When it comes to designer swimwear, this California-based swim line is the only one you need to know about. Not only do they feature the most gorgeous styles of handmade swimsuits, but each one is also made from Italian swim fabrics, giving you an unrivaled fit and feel wherever you go. The first swimsuit we added to our closet this summer? That gorgeous polka-dot bikini top and matching high-waisted swim bottoms — there’s nothing like a retro look to ring in sunny days.
Boys + Arrows
We recently introduced Boys + Arrows into the lineup, and boy, oh boy are we excited. They describe themselves as troublemaking, whiskey-drinking, bikini-wearing hooligans, and we are all about it. Besides the wild spirit of the brand, these seamless swimsuits are also some of the comfiest we’ve ever worn. They fit perfectly and will keep you running around easily, whether you’re lounging poolside in Palm Springs or running through sprinklers with your minis. Oh, and did we mention that they have a shark jaw printed top and bottoms? Yeah, we should probably mention that.
Beach Riot is the ultimate in bold, yet ultra-chic swimwear. Their entire story revolves around rebelling from the norm and making waves, and with these California-cool swimsuits, they’re bringing that spirit of confidence to all of your summer style. If you're looking for full-coverage bikini bottoms and super comfy tops, Beach Riot takes the cake. We’re still swooning over the yellow matching swim set with those high-rise bottoms and the sport-style bikini top, and all we can dream about is a quick game of beach volleyball.
Considering the fact that Tori Praver grew up in Hawaii, it's no wonder that she’s an expert in all things summer. These stunning swim separates feature an iconic smocking technique that she created to keep them as comfortable, easy to move in, and incredibly flattering as can be. If we had to choose a pattern of the summer, I think we can all agree that it’s stripes, stripes, stripes. So make sure you don’t sleep on this yellow striped high-waisted bikini bottom and top combo. But don’t stop there, when you can also add the one-piece strapless floral swimsuit to your vacay lineup.
Summer Styling with Sancia
When it comes to effortless summer style, wanderlust seems to be the name of the game, with our new favorite brand really leading the pack. This Australian company was created to showcase the ideal mix of global influences and beachy Australian vibes. The story starts in 2013 with leather accessories (with brushed gold hardware that’s to die for), but lucky for us they decided to expand to apparel so we can fill our closets with the dreamiest pieces. We are head-over-heels in love with everything they have, but here are our top 5 summer wardrobe essentials.
1. Statement Shorts
When the sun is shining and all there is to worry about is whether you’re going to spend your twelve hours of daylight at the beach or curled in the hammock with a new book, there’s only one appropriate uniform: shorts. We’re all for those trusty denim cutoffs that you’ve had for years, but once you slip on the Sabrina Shorts, you probably won’t want to wear anything else. Not only are they so comfy with the super relaxed fit, but also they showcase the official pattern of summer (at least in our opinion).
2. Casual Blouse (that can be worn with anything)
Some people might think that button-down shirts are meant only for days in the office, but we are here to tell you that that's utterly and completely wrong. The Estelle Painters Shirt brings the perfect free-spirited style with the slouchy fit, and you can wear it in (approximately) a million different ways — we’re talking over your swimsuit on beach day, French-tucked into jean shorts, or tied at the waistline with your favorite jeans.
3. Sunny Pants
In case you haven’t yet realized, mustard is the color of the season (and the official condiment of summer barbecues). Even better than brightening up any outfit, these high-waisted paperbag pants have a relaxed fit that will make it feel like you’re strolling around in your pajamas while making you look like you just came from a day in Paris. The Lida Pants are super lightweight to keep you comfortable even when the sun is strongest — just tuck in a tank top for the perfect casual-chic outfit.
4. Function Meets Everything-Else-You-Could-Want-in-a-Bag
Gone are the days of simply grabbing whatever purse you can find, because with a statement as striking as the L'echelle Mini crossbody bag, you’ll never pass up an opportunity to catch some eyes. The structured design means no more digging around trying to find your keys amongst the madness, and the mix of bamboo and leather is about as beautiful as you could imagine.
5. Jump into Jumpsuits
You know the feeling when you just slip on a dress and all of a sudden you feel like you can do anything? Well with jumpsuits, you really can do it all. The Lia Jumpsuit has the versatile look of a maxi dress — perfect for beach weddings, brunch with your besties, or just strolling around your city — and the lightweight feel and spaghetti straps will make it your go-to one-piece outfit as long as there’s a hint of sun. Want to bring even more winery-weekend vibes? Look to the Palma hat from Lack of Color to bring it all together.
Kid-Friendly Healthy Summer Snacks
Since our littles are on the move even more during summer months, snacking is necessary to hold them over until their next meal. When we think of summer, we may have typical snack foods in mind – candy, chips, ice cream, and soda – all loaded with salt, sugar, and who knows what. Making your own treats puts you in control of what goes inside, giving you the opportunity to get creative and, most importantly, serve the kids something with nutritional value. Read on for 8 better-for-you alternatives to help kick unhealthy summer snacking habits and kick off the summer!
Frozen Banana Smoothies
Instead of throwing away bananas that are too brown to eat, throw them in the freezer to use later as a smoothie base. For a chocolate banana smoothie, blend together 1 frozen banana, ½ cup milk, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and 2 teaspoons of chocolate syrup. For a peanut butter banana smoothie, blend together 1 frozen banana, ½ cup milk, 2 teaspoons of peanut butter, and 2 teaspoons of honey. For a berry-banana smoothie, blend 1 frozen banana, ½ cup milk, ½ cup frozen berries, and 2 teaspoons of honey. Process until smooth and don’t forget to add ice!
Frozen Fruit Bars
Fruits are known as nature’s best snacks. Despite how magical that sounds, it might take a bit of creativity to get kids to eat them. So turn them into refreshing fat-free treats that the littles will love on a hot summer’s day. When comparing to dairy-based frozen desserts, fruit bars are generally lower in calories. Make your own fruit bars by using a frozen popsicle mold. Pour 100 percent fruit juice or fruit purees and add chunks of fruit inside before stowing away in a freezer. Some fruits that taste great frozen include pineapples, grapes, and berries.
Easy to make and easy to eat, these pizza kabobs give parents their kids something to nibble on while enjoying the great outdoors. Use toothpicks as mini skewers. A slice of pepperoni, an olive, small piece of cheese, and a square of whole wheat pita bread on both ends of the skewer are the ideal for a bite-sized pizza. The convenience of this snack lets you enjoy it at the beach or park.
Skinny Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait
The natural sweetness of the strawberries in this parfait make it good for either breakfast or dessert! To make it, you’ll need 1 cup of yogurt of your choice, fresh strawberries sliced thinly, and rhubarb compote. As for the rhubarb compote, you’ll need to bring 4 cups of chopped rhubarb stalks, 1/3 cup of water, and 1/4 cup of maple syrup to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes before storing in the refrigerator. When constructing the parfaits, you can use Mason jars to look cute! You can either mix the yogurt with honey or maple syrup or leave it on its own. Add layers of rhubarb compote and freshly sliced strawberries before garnishing with a drizzle of honey or a curl of rhubarb. Chill or serve immediately for a sweet treat that won’t disappoint!
Recipe via Flavour and Savour
Delicious and easy to make, these yogurt melts are the perfect treat for all ages – from adults to babies starting on solids. Using your favorite yogurt and fruits pureed in a food processor or blender, you can make these for your next picnic. All you do is mix 2 cups of yogurt per 1 cup of fruits. Add drops of the mixture on parchment paper and set them in the freezer for a couple hours. Get creative with the flavors by trying different fruit and yogurt combos. You can also add raw honey, cinnamon, vanilla extract, spinach, kale, carrots, beets, or cucumbers.

Ants on a Log
Here’s one way to get the littles to eat celery. Named in the 1950s, Ants on a Log is a snack made by spreading cream cheese, peanut butter, ricotta cheese, or any number of spreads on celery and placing raisins on top. For those who have peanut allergies or can’t handle other nut butters, such as almond or cashew butters, you can substitute the peanut butter for sunflower seed butter or coconut butter. Try golden raisins and honey for a twist on the classic that kids love!
No-Bake Fruit Pizza
If your littles love Lunchables, they’ll love this healthier alternative! This snack resembles the popular mini snack pizzas without the preservatives and additives you can’t pronounce. Wholesome ingredients and a familiar yet appealing presentation make these no-bake fruit pizzas a fun and tasty summer bite. Use a whole-wheat tortilla, pita, or flatbread as the crust and natural nut butters or Greek yogurt as the sauce. Toppings could include fresh fruit, dried fruit, nuts, coconut, and granola. You can even portion each ingredient and put them in cupcake papers or cups and lay them out as part of a “topping bar.” Your kids can will have fun customizing and assembling their own pizza, an awesome idea for play dates!

All Veggie Nachos
Swap out salty tortilla chips for crispy bell peppers triangles! Add dollops of low-fat sour cream and a sprinkle of light shredded cheese of your choice. You can even dip these colorful “chips” in guacamole, hummus, or a homemade salsa. Top with corn, diced tomatoes, avocadoes, cucumbers, and cilantro. This snack is easily adaptable and looks great on the picnic table.

Summer is rolling in, as is our anticipation to dress our littles in the freshest summer styles that won’t leave them feeling stuffy or uncomfortable. Read on for inspo that will have your littles looking and feeling cool!
Girly, sophisticated, and fun to match, floral print is a delightful way to celebrate the season. Welcome summer in with a colorful flower pattern, as seen on the Camilla Skirt by Bohemian Mama.
Another floral piece we love is the Bloom Midi Skirt by Harlow Jade, below. Whether she’s blowing bubbles or chasing butterflies, she’ll be comfortable and covered in these vibrant skirts.
Animal prints in children’s fashion have spiked in popularity over the last couple seasons. Leopard print, especially, has made its presence with its mature yet playful feel – the perfect balance for your mini fashionista. Despite preconceived notions, animal prints can be versatile. Take a chance with the Wild Things Dress by Bohemian Mama!
Or, tone it down with the Leopard Camilla Skirt, also a fantastic piece by Bohemian Mama. With this skirt, your little one can still express their wild side while coupled with either a solid or graphic top, as pictured above.
Youthful and fun, statement and graphic tees are cute on any boy or girl – not to mention, they are appropriate for most casual settings from the backyard bbq’s to theme parks. Get your hands on some bold graphics to match your child’s personality. Then, all you would have to do is throw on jeans or shorts to complete your little’s look. You can’t go wrong with the Big Sister Tee and the Best Big Bro Muscle Tee by Chaser Kids!
Paper Straw Hats
If your little one doesn’t already have a hat of his or her own, what are you waiting for? Not only do they make adorable accessories, adding extra flair to any outfit, but they help protect your child’s face from the sun. Alongside sunscreen, paper straw hats are the way to go. Shield against the summer rays with the Cowboy Sunhat or Tassel Cowgirl Sunhat by Snapper Rock!
On-trend mamas know that tassels are in this summer! They’re festive and fancy. What’s not to love about tassels? They make any piece chic and summer-y. Watch them swing while she plays! Pair her smile with the Serena Dress, left, or the Kate Dress by Mer St. Barth, right.
One Piece Wonders for Summer 2018
From jumpsuits to dresses and everything in between, the many styles of summer have us ecstatic! Though it may seem like a challenge to don effortless outfits while feeling cool and still looking cute, you may find it easier with a one piece. Read on for some of our favorites!
The Maxi Dress
The versatility of maxi dresses makes it a summer staple. They’re great for pool parties or evening dinners by the shore. The full length elongates the body, giving the illusion of more height! Worn with sandals or dressed up with wedges, the Tropez Maxi by Show Me Your Mumu captures summer all in one piece with its blue palm leaves and pastel pink. The singular shoulder gives this dress a special summer flair.
Make the leather Mia Braid Strappy Sandals by Mia Shoes a summer essential! Thanks to its soft cushion insole, you can pair it with a maxi for maximum comfort.
The Asymmetrical Dress
Unique and seductive by nature, asymmetrical dresses have a certain aesthetic about them. They exude playfulness and charm with their fashionable cuts. Dare to be different yet flirtatious in a dress that shows a little bit of leg. Stylish is an understatement when describing the crimson Wispers Slip Dress by Cleobella, pictured left, and the intricate patchwork of the Stevie Dress by Tigerlily, pictured right.
The Midi Dress
The underrated midi dress deserves recognition this season! It’s not too long and not too short – ideal for showing off a cute pair of sandals and ankle wear. What we especially love about the Love You Midi Dress by Free People, pictured left, is the fit-and-flare shape, which makes the waist appear smaller. The cinch at the waist is a minor detail which makes a major difference, as it really flatters your figure. Another favorite of ours is the Edenia Midi Dress by Cleobella, featuring bold, colorful detail and a cut-out in the middle that says, “What better time than summer?”
Looking for an ankle piece to show off? The blue and gold beads of the In The Groove Anklet by Ettika will hypnotize you!
The Off-the-Shoulder Mini Dress
Anyone can rock this style of dress during warmer weather as it allows you to flash some shoulders and a fancy neck piece. Accessorizing has never been easier! Our favorites include the El Paso Dress by Tigerlily, pictured left, and the Can Can Dress by Show Me Your Mumu, pictured right.
Accessorizing has just been made even easier with the Juliet necklace by Ettika! Its layers speak for itself!
Rompers are daunting without compromising comfort. They provide the right coverage for playing under the summer sun or striding the boardwalk. Cinching in at the waist, the romper suits all body types. We love the Rosa Romper by Spell & the Gypsy because of its fluttery sleeves and trim.
Like the romper, the jumpsuit has that coverage ideal for movement. Its full length adds height while appearing put-together. Wear one to chilly beach bonfires or evening cruises. Jumpsuits are statement pieces meant for summer! Take the Sabine Onesie by Tigerlily, pictured left, for instance. Or, you can opt for a casually simplistic look with the Hamsa Jumper by Spiritual Gangster, which is nice for an active day with the kids.
