Hello everyone, I am super excited about this blog feature. A few months ago I came across a shop called BohoCircus on Etsy. You all know I love graphic tees and tanks, as well as bohemian fashion and decor. I had searched Etsy for some bohemian graphic tees and found their site. I placed an order for my first tank from them, the Bohemian muscle tank pictured below and featured a few times here as well as on my social media ootd or tee posts. After having a couple convos on Etsy about my trip to Texas we had planned, as well as just discussing similar interests and hobbies, I had the honor of getting to know these ladies. I then knew I really wanted to do my first blog feature since revamping my blog on them and their family owned sites, A Rosy Outlook and Boho Circus. I hope you enjoy their story and inspirations as much as I did. It reminded me so much of my own story in so many ways and I really am very fond of these kindred, free spirited, creative souls, I was lucky to have crossed paths with. Not only have I gotten to know them but also now have some killer graphic tees and tanks to add to my collection.
Make sure to read on because below I have an exclusive promo code they created for my readers to use for 10% off your purchase. Thank you so much to Bren and Chyna for allowing me to do this feature, for sharing you're amazing story and inspiration, and for the promo code for my readers to use. Means so much. Xoxo ✌️❤️
Boho Circus & A Rosy Outlook
Bren & Chyna Mason
Three Generations of Gypsies Creating Good Stuff Daily in the Texas Hill Country.
Bren grew up in the back of her family's Volkswagen van listening to Fleetwood Mac and the interesting tales of the hippie hitchhikers who sat in the front seat. Captivated by the flowers in their hair, she leaned into their every word, and wished she were old enough to escape with them into the wanderlust forests of Big Sur, California.
Born to free-spirited artists, Bren helped her mother paint pottery, sew peasant clothing and sell their macrame jewelry at craft fairs. She helped her dad refurbish antique automobiles, jukeboxes, and flea market finds. Believing that " homes are for free expression rather than good impression," Bren encouraged her daughters to express their imaginations. The sisters' artwork began on the walls and furniture, and eventually wound up as designs on T-shirts, tambourines, jewelry, and recycled gypsy dry goods. Best known for their "Gypsy Soul" and "Texas Born & Raised" designs, the family expresses their wild-at-heart souls creating whatever inspires them at the moment.
Boho Circus is the bohemian line of apparel and goods created under the family's company called "A Rosy Outlook." Bren believes that everyone deserves a rosy outlook, so giving back is an essential aspect of the company's mission. A portion of every purchase is contributed to Austin Pets Alive, The Houston Ballet, The National Parks Conservation Association, CASA, and many smaller, but worthwhile, organizations.
When I asked the ladies about inspiration and what inspired them and their designs they responded in email with;
" Inspiration is sometimes hard to define. It can be a cactus bloom we notice on a hike, or a lyric to a song, or a feeling of driving down the highway chasing the sunset. We believe that if we keep our mind, soul, and eyes open we can find inspiration everywhere.
Traveling is possibly the most inspiring outlet for us- a trip to Mexico, Spain, Italy or just down the road to Marfa, Texas can inspire a new design. Most recently, we have found inspiration on the road in the Pacific Northwest; road tripping and camping out of a VW camper from the California Redwoods to Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver Island.
Throughout the past decade of being in business, we have kept out brand genuine by staying true to our high standards in quality and service. Unless we would buy it ourselves, we don't offer it. Some of our products have come about because of projects that we make for ourselves. For instance, I (Chyna) created a dog bed out of a vintage Kantha quilt as a birthday gift for my mom. When she saw it she said, "We have to make these for Boho Circus!!" This is just one example of the many ideas that have organically come about."

These are just a few styles they offer that I own. I am excited to order more tees and tanks in other designs, I love they're "Not All Who Wander" tee with a camper and night sky design, "Blame my Gypsy Soul" tee and tanks which are a classic design that every gypsy at heart needs for their tee collection and
