boheme

By now, if you didn’t know me already, you must know that I am drawn to all things “bohemian”.  I think it’s because of my artistic and carefree nature, combined with the airy, carefree and colorful aesthetics of the bohemian lifestyle.

Being bohemian involves having no rules and living carefree.  Am I badass?  Absolutely not.  The area of bohemianism that I relate most to are the aesthetics, especially in fashion.  I mostly love dressing unlike other women in my generation, and feeling comfortable in what I am wearing.  I love watching trends arrive with the new seasons, but I do not go with the mainstream flow when it comes to labels or styles.  Instead, I love flowy, airy pieces, extravagant details and embellishments, and taking risks of combining the two (lace and fringed leather, anyone?).  I appreciate various types of art, from beautiful fashion illustrations, to abstract paintings.  And my taste in music varies as well, from J.Cole to Death Cab.
That’s why I was so thrilled to stumble upon this crop top from Topshop on the Nordstrom website.  I bought it because I believed that it encompasses everything I am, from my “boho” fashion sense, to my laid-back and carefree attitude.

I encourage you to live in a way that makes you happiest, even if it is opposite from the majority.  You define your own rules and your own happiness and express this in a way that is most beautiful to you.  Love things, whether they make sense or not.
