Street Style on Sundays #7

Totally obsessed with complete Minimal Animal style at the moment. Not the whole "Normcore" boring style, the chic, clean-lines minimal style. (The "animal" was just me thinking I'm funny.)

Minimal and Chic Street Style Slouchy
You've had the slouch variety... Now the structured...

Minimal and chic street style tailored

Hope you're all having a great weekend. I'm off to indulge as much as humanly possible. Champagne counts, right?!

Images are all off Pinterest.

Street Style on Sundays #6

The idea of sheer fabrics and loose fabrics have always appealed to me. Obviously I'm not talking about a completely sheer cling film maxi-dress, I mean the beautiful lace trims on a pencil skirt, or the semi-sheer chiffon shirt...

Peekaboo accents on tops are just beautiful. Whether it be lace with a crop top underneath, or chiffon with a lace triangle bra. Always super feminine when toned down on the bottom half. (Or basically, the boobs or legs rule.)

I'm dying to get my hands on one of these peekaboo type lace skirts. They're so beautiful, especially when styled like the second picture with a button down casual shirt.

As always, pictures are from Pinterest.

Street Style on Sundays #5

Where the hell have I been? With all sincerity, I have no idea myself.

I've developed an overwhelming obsession with Katie Cassidy's style, which is truly being reinforced with her fashion blog, Tomboy KC. And from this, I seem to really be favouring tomboy-ish and masculine looks instead of the usual "lady" clothes that seem to pop up as soon as the sun starts to make an appearance.

Borrowed from the boyfriend...

Feminine and Masculine combined... 

Probably the safer option of the two, to try out masculine/tomboy dressing. Love a masculine jacket paired with a floaty dress, or leather trousers with heels, not to mention the shirt tied around the waist of your dress. No belt needed.

Street Style on Sundays #4

QUICK NOTE: You can now pin directly from my snaps here. Hover over the image, click, and you'll be ready to pin... Whether any of you are as excited as I am, I don't know, but it's totally worthy of a mention...

I love a bit (okay, a LOT) of denim. Me and my jeans are inseperable. When you add leather to the mix, you can guarantee that I will squeal like a little girl at material heaven.

First lot of street style inspiration is denim for spring time, or British summers, whichever way you want to look at it...

Of course I had to compile denim for summer looks too... 

Hope you've had a great weekend so far. Lots of love.

Street Style on Sundays #3

Here's me wishing summer would just hurry up... we're all done with winter now, right?!

The long-length and the floaty...

And the shorter...

Now we just need the sun.

Where does our Inspiration come from? #2 - Beauty

The first post I did looking at where our everyday inspirations come from was focusing on Fashion, and in particular, those I would call my muses, Ashley Madekwe, Phoebe Tonkin and Olivia Palermo. I thought it's about time (apologies for the delay!) that I share the people that inspire my beauty regime.

The Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale could not be further away from me in terms of what she looks like, given her hair is SO dark, and she's a teeny tiny petite girl, and my legs look more like Karlie Kloss'. But, ignoring this completely, I love how unlike other young celebrities, she recognizes she has young fresh skin, and doesn't need to overload it with product. Her typical makeup look is emphasis on the lashes, a defined brow, and what I think looks like a "bitten" lip, when the lip is stained with a beautiful raspberry tone, that always makes the rest of the look so fresh and youthful.   

Phoebe Tonkin has already featured in my fashion inspirations, and she had to appear in beauty too, given her similar, youthful approach to make-up and skincare. The defined brow, soft eyes with long, feminine eyelashes, and a beautiful raspberry stained lip. I've found myself bookmarking her Into The Gloss Top Shelf, and repeatedly looking at it wondering what I can buy next. I've already bought OPI's Bubble Bath as mentioned in the article, and it's slowly creeping into the list of my favourite ever polishes. So I must apologise if I start rambling on about her too much, but I'm really finding that I can relate to her wardrobe and beauty regime... 

Maybe a teeny little cheat using a website, but I always turn to ITG for beauty tips, from beauty insiders, celebrities, bloggers, and the incredible interviews they always seem to have with the most beautiful of the beauty knowledgeable. I without fail read their articles every time one comes to my attention, and more often than not will learn some sort of revolutionary tip or trick that can change your regime from tiresome to perfect.

I hadn't realised until doing these posts that I'm ridiculously inspired by brunettes despite being a blonde. Well, it is dark blonde...

Hope you're all still with me, evidently I'm quite passionately inspired by these. Hope you all have a great weekend. I can see sunny skies, so I'm contemplating walking off the bacon butties we had this morning.

Lots of love.

Where does our Inspiration come from?

After having a discussion last week about inspiration and where it comes from, I realised, that we do all get inspiration from the most unlikely of places, and then I set out writing down all the influences and inspirations I have and who or what they've developed from...

I thought it'd be pretty fun to show you in a series of posts the things I feel influenced by, in my body wardrobe and my face wardrobe. (I simply can't help myself, can I?) Today is sponsored by the people that are my fashion influences...

Ashley Madekwe

The queen of making casual look effortless and cool, the former Revenge star managed to turn the most simple outfit into something much more powerful through the use of fantastic accessories. Her wardrobe is completely enviable, and she is a brilliant example of how to combine high-street and designer pieces to build the ultimate female wardrobe. Ashley also runs a blog, Ring My Bell, which is just the most beautiful gallery of endless fantastic outfits.

Phoebe Tonkin

Another gorgeous girl who manages to do casual with the perfect amount of class. I love the way she combines textures and seems to forever have the most beautiful pairs of black shoes. I'm currently falling head over woman heels for this woman, dare I say I have a woman crush. We all hate that saying, I know... but I'm just in love with this lady.

Olivia Palermo

The epitome of ladylike fashion, Olivia P just seems to always have it on point. Her loosely waved hair and familiarity with the boundaries of fashion and how to just push them have her consistently being referred to as a fashion inspiration.

Hope you've enjoyed this post, I found it quite fun to do. I will be doing my beauty influences next, I think. A couple of these lovely ladies MAY just pop up again...

Street Style on Sundays #2

I absolutely loved doing this type of post last week, it was so much fun, it was (as I have now donned) "Pinning with a purpose." So I thought I'd play around on Pinterest once again and show you some beautiful street style inspiration.

This week, I feel like I've come across so many stunning jackets...

And of the leather variety... (my favourite kind)...

Hope you're all now set for the week ahead in jacket inspiration...
