I've always refrained from classifying my style into a particular genre, instead choosing to believe that it's very varied and versatile; but I think it's high time I start being honest to myself, if not anyone else. I love Bohemian and I dress Bohemian, and I've been loving it way before since it's been so mainstream.
 More than how bohemian looks, I love how it makes me feel- carefree, independent, experimental, artistic and wanderlusty. Everything I wear, even the chic, classy looks, have some bohemian element conferred to them. 
They say how you dress, your style, strongly portrays your personality and train of thought. I find it stupid when people blindly copy looks and style, because that's another person's style, not yours. Follow trends, borrow styles, but take a particular trend or style and infuse it into your own individual style, don't totally emulate another person, then you're dressed as that person, not yourself. There's a vast difference between taking inspiration and thoughtlessly copying, don't fall into the latter bracket.
What makes any outfit, or any attire tick is how different it is, how much individuality it possesses. Never blindly follow fashion, try understanding it.

P.S. I'm finally on Instagram. Follow me here on Facebook to get regular updates. :)
