If I'm not careful, I can spend hours devouring other people's images. There are quite a few amazing blogs out there, and I'm mostly obsessed with what other people are wearing. I'm not sure exactly what is so intriguing to me, but I marvel at each lady's ability to look effortlessly calm, cool and collected. I get tons of ideas for myself and find new ways to wear pieces in my own wardrobe. Currently, 3 lovely lass's from California are at the top of my list. In no particular order, they are Coury from Fancy Treehouse, Ashley from Purse n Boots, and Beth from B.Jones Style.
Coury, whom I hope to meet next week while I'm in LA, inspires me most with her unexpected color combinations like lavender/red, her ability to rock a pair of flat loafers (and shorts!) like nobody's business and her excellent attention to proportion.
Ashley, well, she's just cool. Her combo of rocker, bohemian, sorceress, speaks to my inner Stevie Nicks (completely obsessed). Hands down, she's got the best accessories, and wears them all at the same time, in gorgeous, bold clusters. I'm most inspired by her layering abilities, complete confidence, and extreme hemlines both long and short.
Beth often references her "inner Carrie", and she's got as many creative hairstyles as she does outfits! I'm inspired by her incredible vintage collection, her bold taste (hello gold leather pants!) and her need to plan her wardrobe according to where her travels take her (she crafts a new look for each location, just like yours truly).
Thanx ladies for the copious amounts of inspiration. xo
