April is Earth Month, so if there is one time of the year to let loose your inner hippie, its now. Why not flaunt a bohemian Boulder style, updated for the 21st century? Choose accessories that are less bell-bottoms and Birkenstocks, more worn-in leather and slightly trippy florals. Everything eco-friendly is in the spotlight, down to your Kalencom Miss Prissy diaper bag. While you are trying out a free-spirited style, be sure to stock your bag with earth-friendly products for the wee one as well.
