After contemplating the idea of starting a fashion blog for a very long time, I have finally decided to put my foot in the door. I have loved exploring the world of fashion, studying, and creating trends since as long as I can remember. This blog is my way to express some of my creativity and ideas with you!

My name is Savanna Petersen and I am currently a junior Marketing student at the University of Northern Iowa. Both a Minnesota native and truly a Minnesota girl at heart. I plan on returning to my home state after I finish school. The future hopefully holds a career in the marketing field with some relation to the fashion industry. I can’t imagine a full day without thinking about clothes!

What’s my style on the spectrum? Definitely bohemian but somewhat toned down. I’m known as the “gypsy” in our family due to my love affair with fringe, suede, beading, and lace. Even though muted colors and anything “hippie” highlight the “look,” I love all types of fashion and the creative ways people express themselves. If you have passion and follow your heart, you will rock whatever look you desire.

One of my favorite people is Stevie Nicks. I would definitely say that she is an influential fashion icon to myself. I love her free spirit, her passion for life, her creativity, and of course her music. If I could be a gypsy everyday, I would.

In my free time I enjoy listening to music (Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, The Stones, etc.), thrifting and antique shopping, exploring new places, traveling, spending time with family and friends, and of course shopping, shopping, and more shopping.

I can’t wait to share all sorts of things from bohoblondie with you. Thank you so much for your time and support!
