Hi guys, I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus for the past week enjoying my last bits of holiday. I’ve also been reflecting a bit on the blog and I want to do something new!!! I don’t want this blog to be just about me. Lets be honest, I get most of my inspiration from other people, other places and other things. Not to mention I’m already getting sick of looking at my face and I’m sure you are too! So this post is about where (and who!) I get my inspiration from.
I’m obsessed with both pinterest and instagram, and from both of these apps I’ve found my ultimate style crushes/loves. Now my style changes depending on my mood, but if i’m having one of those days where I can’t find anything to wear I’ll trawl through my recent pinterests posts and replicate a look from there.
Right now I’m obsessed with London street style from the likes of Poppy Delevigne, Alexa Chung and Suki Waterhouse. London street style has this quirky edge to it. They’re not afraid to experiment, and most of all they have fun with fashion! Think of Suki and her cute hats, Alexa’s rain hail or shine denim cut-offs, or Poppy’s lady-like but edgy style.
I think what I love most is the aura of elegance these women have combined with an adventurous streak. They don’t play by the rules. As Alexa Chung says “never say never in fashion because you’ll be wearing never in two years time” and shes right! I understand wanting to stick to the trends but style is an attitude at the end of the day. You may be wearing a fresh of the runway outfit from Balenciaga, but if you aren’t confident and comfortable in it you’re not going to pull it off. So borrow one from the Brits, be elegant, but maintain that mischievous streak they’re all famous for.
