The Definition of Hippie is:
Usually a young person who rejects the mores of established society (as by dressing unconventionally or favoring communal living) and advocates a nonviolent ethic broadly : a long-haired unconventionally dressed young person.
The Definition of modern is
Modern means relating to the present time, for example the present decade or present century. We had a long talk about the problem of materialism in modern society. Something that is modern is new and involves the latest ideas or equipment. In many ways, it was a very modern school for its time.
Combining the 2 a Modern Hippie is
- Be Individual Make choices based on your own individual point of view. You tend to be the leader in your crowd. You dress in your own unique style and you don't let others dissuade you from something you want to do.
- Embrace your Natural Look Don't load on the makeup. If you feel you must wear makeup keep it Neutral and Natural. I find Bare Minerals to fit well into the overall feel of that. It is all natural.
- Choose a Natural Lifestyle Make your shopping choices based on Sustainability. Educate yourself about sustainability. It is a complex issue and we all have to decide how we see it. The marketing world has used the term in ways that are meant to get you to buy their products so you should know how things are actually produced. Here is one article about Yoga Clothing.
- You own Crystals and believe in their Power Gems and Crystals are wonderful gifts of nature. You love to collect them and know about their healing power. You use them regularly when you meditate and always carry one.
I managed to not use the word Boho is describing a Modern Hippie. LOL. Well, we can run but not hide from that right?
