Living Bougie: Unapologetically Defining Your Standards

Posted by Be Bougie on

In a world where conformity often seems to be the norm, there's something profoundly liberating about choosing to live life unapologetically on your own terms. Are you someone who delights in the finer things, sets uncompromising standards, and refuses to apologize for your choices? If so, you are the embodiment of what it truly means to be bougie.


The Bougie Lifestyle Unveiled: Elevating Your Standards


Before we delve deeper into the art of living bougie, allow us to introduce you to a fashionable way to celebrate your unapologetic commitment to higher standards – the Be Bougie Definition Tee. This tee not only embodies the essence of your luxurious journey but also serves as a badge of honor for those who refuse to compromise.


Defining Bougie: A Lifestyle, Not a Label

Let's debunk the myths surrounding the term "bougie." It's a term often misconstrued and used pejoratively. Being bougie is not about materialism or arrogance; it's about setting elevated standards for yourself and embracing a life of opulence, grace, and fulfillment on your own terms.


The Challenges of Embracing the Bougie Lifestyle


Living a bougie life is a remarkable journey, but it's not without its challenges. It's a lifestyle choice that may lead to misunderstandings and judgments. Let's explore some of these challenges and how to handle them with grace:


7. Coping with Envy and Criticism:

Turn envy and criticism into opportunities for growth. Use these moments to reinforce the fact that your journey is about personal fulfillment, happiness, and making the most of life, regardless of external opinions.


1. Misunderstood as High Maintenance:


The bougie lifestyle often leads to misconceptions that you're high maintenance. People may think you're excessively particular or demanding when, in reality, you simply appreciate the finer things in life and refuse to settle for less.

When someone labels you as "high maintenance," use it as an opportunity to communicate your values. Calmly and assertively express that your standards are a reflection of your commitment to personal fulfillment and happiness, not just extravagance.


2. Accused of Snobbishness:


The label of "snobbish" may be unfairly attached to those who appreciate the finer aspects of life. People might perceive you as aloof or distant, yet, in truth, you're discerning about your experiences and the company you keep.

Transform accusations of snobbishness into teachable moments. Exude confidence and emphasize that your discerning nature is rooted in a desire for meaningful experiences, not a sense of superiority.


3. Facing Judgment and Stereotyping:


Embracing the bougie lifestyle can expose you to stereotypes and preconceived notions about your character and values. It's essential to convey that your choices go beyond surface-level judgments.

To address stereotypes and preconceived notions, you COULD, if the spirit moves you, take the time to educate others about the depth of your choices. Share stories and experiences that showcase the genuine reasons behind your bougie lifestyle. At the end of, their issue with you is really about them and the inner work they need to do, so I wouldn't spend too much time trying to convince grown people why you like what you like. 


4. Balancing Expectations and Authenticity:


Striking a balance between maintaining your elevated standards and staying authentic can be challenging. Yet, it's vital to remain true to your values while gracefully adapting to different situations.

The concept of balance is a journey. it takes some level of emoitonal intelligence to this well. Be open about your challenges, and let others see that authenticity is at the core of your bougie lifestyle.


5. Coping with Envy and Criticism:


Living the bougie life may ignite envy or jealousy in others, leading to criticism and negativity. No one knows the full backstory of how you arrived at the place you are today. You can choose to share it or not. 

Turn envy and criticism into opportunities for growth. Use these moments to reinforce the fact that your journey is about personal fulfillment, happiness, and making the most of life, regardless of external opinions.

My New Go to-Well Made Notebook!

I am a notebook SNOB and I'm picky about what kinds of notebooks I write in and I love this notebook. Plenty of pages to write my reflections. I'll be back to grab a few more in different colors as gifts.

So Cute, So Me!

OMG! I LOVE this sweatshirt. It's so cute and so me. I love the embroidery detail. It's giving Bougie Doll, that I can dress up or down. I got the one in pink but will likely get another one in black and white, so many chic things I can do with this one. It's unique, it's fun. I'm obsessed!

I love the quality. Washes nicely in warm water. Hang drying is best to keep the good quality of good cotton material.
