30 Days………OOTD’s

Ah 1,2, ah 1,2……….Ah, 1, 2, ah 1,2………….getting my thoughts together like a rapper getting ready to battle rap. 🙂
I must admit, this year’s “30 days of Fashion” is a little bit more successful than the previous years. Oh, and I am a little excited because this weekend, I plan to create my own lookbook of styles that I have put together in my head.
In my mind, I have a full production going on with backdrops, complete outfit ensembles, the whole nine yards. I just hope it comes out as cool as the images I have in my head. Stay tuned.
“If you can imagine it, you can create it…………..”.

Denim Upcycled Dress


One of my bucket list items is to attend an event at NYFW. I mean, if you are a fashion blogger, that’s the ultimate dream, right?…….. Besides the ability to do blogging full-time.
In the next few days, I plan to create “What I would wear to fashion week” #OOTD. Now this denim dress is not one of the looks but it is one of my favorite dresses in my closet for several reasons. It’s one of a kind and totally my personal style.
The backstory on this dress is that it used to be a jumpsuit that I bought at a thrift store. I saw it and thought “Hmmm, I am going to ask an associate of mines (who upcycles a lot of my pants for me) to work her magic” and “Poof!!!”, the birth of my denim maxi dress.

Thirty Days Of Fashion


Every year, I “try” the “Thirty Days of Fashion” challenge. I emphasize “try” because I would do the challenge and fail because I never really had a plan.
I am learning fashion blogging is more than just taking photos and creating outfit of the days, you actually have to plan your posts. #whoknew? Seriously, that may sound logical and you may be thinking “Well, Duh Michal!!!” but I am such a “free-spirit” that I never really took the time to plan out my hobby, my passion.

This year, I decided to take a totally different approach and provide a guide for myself of what outfits I would post each day (and now that I know a little bit about how to take my own photos), this “Thirty Days of Fashion” seems a little bit more promising.
Anyway, if you follow me on Instagram (@thebohemiancosmo), you can see some of my recent posts. I will be posting some of my favorites on this blog site shortly.

Love, Sun & Peace


Here lately I have been a little bit more motivated in taking my own photos for my blog. I guess it’s like a challenge that I feel I must overcome.
Each time I go to a site to take photos, I think to myself “Will this post be inspirational to someone?” and I pray to God for help. Him & I, we are like a team. 🙂

Lights, Camera, and Action!!!!!!!!
Another thing I am learning about taking your own photos is you must be comfortable with you and this project and as my boyfriend told me yesterday “Own it!!”.
Basically, don’t be afraid of people staring at you. I almost got a little nervous when a young boy and his Mom went past me on a bike and then I thought “Michal, just zone everyone out. Own it”.
“If you accept it, the world around you MUST follow suit”.

Coordinating Stripes


One thing I have learned about blogging is you have to stay consistent, no matter what. That is the only way to build your audience and your brand and sometimes in life there are hurdles to overcome………….(it happens, just roll with it).
Here recently, I have been trying to teach myself how to be my own photographer. The inside story is my photographer, who is my oldest child, works really long and hard hours as a manager in the foodservice industry. I am so proud of him for his work ethic…………(proud Mom moment, let me take a moment. #veklempt Talk amongst yourselves)
Okay, I’m back. The result is I need to find a photographer………….enter myself in the training wheels phase of the world of photography.
I took these photos over the weekend and for the next month, I will try to commit to learning how to master taking selfies. Lift me up in your prayers, won’t you? 🙂
