When you hear the word “bohemian”, what do you think of? If it’s “thunderbolt and lightning, very very frightening” … this is probably not the blog for you.
When I think of “bohemian”, I think … Unique. I think of the crowds at Woodstock Music Festival, “adventure”, “unconventional”. I think flowers in the hair, jewellery that catches the eye from a distance and bright, flowing kaftans.
Did you know the term “bohemianism” originally came from France in the early 1800s when artists began to create their own low class (or voluntary poverty) neighbourhoods? And still today, it’s just about simplicity and bringing as much simple living into your day. Why not? I mean, who wants to be part of a mundane (sheep) culture when you can stand out on your own, be unique, and live your life exactly how you want, regardless of society’s expectations (and as long as you’re not harming anyone else).
The dictionary defines bohemian as “a socially unconventional person, especially one who is involved in the arts” … pretty basic and simple. But it really is so much more than that and if you’re reading this, you probably already know there is more to it than a simple definition.
The best thing about bohemian fashion is, it’s about YOU. And no, I’m not talking about the “you” who gets up every morning, has a coffee and heads off to the office (snore). I’m talking about the “you” that lurks deep in your subconscious, just waiting for the chance to emerge …
Bohemian fashion and lifestyle is about excitement and relaxation, and at Indie and Harper, we aim to bring that to life through our stunning jewellery and accessories.
Did you know the most popular stones are Turquoise and Moonstone. Have you ever seen the way a Moonstone shines in the sunlight? Its beauty is impeccable and wearing the stone is believed to foster happiness, gracefulness, good fortune, hope, spiritual insight, easy childbirth, safe travel on water, new beginnings and helps adjust to changes. Uniquely beautiful, the moonstone is a must have that will have you embracing your inner bohemian.
Make sure you check out our Moonstone Collection and until next time.
