Afro Chic meets Bohemian Chic

SO…. I have decided to start embracing my natural hair and truly embracing the notion that “your hair is your crown”. Styling it is quite a mission and one hell of a challenge but I’m up for the challenge #naturalalltheway #naturalhairROCKS #AfroChicMeetsBohemianChic #ThatsMeBelow 🙂

That Chilled Out Work Look

There’s something about a new working environment & meeting new people that makes one feel like they are ready to take over the world again. It sure feels good having that feeling back! Its as if I’ve found my “purpose” in life again 🙂 Yes I’m back and feeling more inspired than ever!

Here’s to new beginnings and loving my new job and new style – That Chilled Out Work Look; Tailored yet relaxed. Here are a few ways on how to get the look.

Tell your Story

The Bohemian lifestyle is easily stereotyped as a carefree, roll with the wind kind of lifestyle. A lifestyle that’s made up of individuals that might not be too focused or driven career wise. Individuals that surround themselves or create for themselves a system in which, mediocracy is rewarded.This is the label that society has given Bohemian Culture. I, for one fell for Bohemian style and the lifestyle for that reason – it just didn’t seem like I had to try much or worry myself crazy over how trendy or how good I look or being fashion forward.

Well… that has changed now. I’ve been exploring what the New Modern Bohemian is all about- think Solange Knowles, Common – the rapper, Raphael Saadiq, & Tracee Ellis Ross. These are people making waves in their career field by simply being themselves and remaining true to their sense of identity (personality or fashion wise). Those are the faces of people living the New Modern Bohemian Lifestyle, best of all they manage to remain humble while doing this. With that said, the past year and half has ignited a fire in me, one that is ready to grow and spread like wild fire across an open veld. Heck I know I have what it takes. Its time for me to tell my story. How about you start telling your story too!

Today’s post is for all those that need a little motivation to finally  to tell their story, the Modern Bohemian way of-course 🙂 –
