When it comes to my personal style, I pull inspiration from many sources. Whether it be other blogs (Cupcakes and Cashmere and 9 to 5 Chic are my favorites right now) websites (people.com), magazines (People Style Watch is one of my favorites), or random people on the street, I love seeing different trends and outfit combos, and how people dress to compliment their body type.
I feel like how we dress is another form of expressing our creativity and I love coming up with different outfits, usually using some of the same pieces.
I like to think my style runs towards classic with a twist. I love finding pieces that I can wear for years, but also like to throw in a trendy item here and there. Some things I’m loving right now are loose button-ups, thin cardigans, dark skinny jeans, gold accessories, cuffed denim, stripes, and wedges.
When it comes to celebrities, I think I pull the most inspiration from Reese Witherspoon. She always looks so chic, wearing mostly classic and timeless pieces, yet even when following trends always looks so effortless and beautiful. My bangs were even inspired by one of her hairstyles!
I love a bargain and normally won’t buy anything for full price. I do splurge a bit on designer denim but usually make up for it by being frugal in other areas. I am more likely to spend a bit more on something that I will wear for a while (like jeans and handbags) than something that may be ‘out’ by the end of the month. I don’t always follow trends but when I do, I tend to look to stores like Forever 21 since they are usually cheap enough to warrant only a few wears of a certain trendy item. Thrift stores are great too!

I have to remind myself sometimes that even if I like the look of something, I need to stay true to my body type. One example: rompers. I love them and think they look great on others but they do nothing to compliment my thighs. 🙂 If I’m not confident in an outfit, it definitely shows…and it’s not worth it!
Do you have a celebrity style inspiration? Are there any trends that you shy away from?
