The Icon #4 Florence Welch- Boho Rock Summer Nights

One of my current new favorite style icons is Florence Welch from Florence & the Machine. Not only is she striking & unusual, but she seems to be a true free spirit and a modern day goddess, playing by her own rules in both her music and personal style. She is not only beautiful, but also incredibly talented & inspiring. Her voice is pure & unaltered emotion. Her look is a mix of different style elements & has a sort of dreamy & flowing Boho vibe that’s offset by some hard edged pieces.

Follow her style for a bohemian rocker look for your summer nights out….happy summer!

THE ICON #2- Lisa Bonet- The Modern Bohemian

One of my favorite style icons from the 80’s and 90’s was Lisa Bonet who played Denise Huxtable on The Cosby Show. A true free spirit, she seemed to wear whatever she felt like & to do whatever she wanted. She was not only beautiful, but also a talented actress and to this day she has a look that can not really be defined in terms of race, age or any other categories. She is a true bohemian who seems to live a sort of gypsy life, dropping in and out of the Hollywood scene at her own will & time.

Her past style both on and off The Cosby Show was original & a true inspiration…..and her present “Earth Mama” look still represents the ultimate “Modern Bohemian”: my Icon #2- Lisa Bonet.

The Inspiration #2: Bohemian Modern

Now that the year is finally coming to a close and things are starting to wind down for the holidays, it’s the perfect time to start dreaming about what you are going to be wearing next spring! I’m loving the new “Modern Bohemian” look that was all over the Resort & Spring 2014 runways….

If you are one of the lucky ones jetting off to somewhere warm and tropical for the holidays, you might want to channel your inner free spirit while packing your suitcase. But, if not, you can still dream about frolicking on the beach or speeding away in your vintage convertible in some of these cute outfits…..

As always, it’s that little bit of contrast that makes any outfit exciting, so combine some glam accessories with your Boho look for a truly modern aesthetic.
