Icon

For years now I’ve kept a folder in my email for fashion inspirations or Websites I come across. In Style magazine has sent me a “Look of the Day” email showcasing some celebrity every day for years now. I always bookmark the sassy ones and scratch the crazies! Lady GaGa lobster headgear? No thanks!  

As I was going through some of my favorites the other day, I noticed that I’m inspired by so many different looks…yet, there seem to be a few that always make it in “the file.” 

Kate Middleton
I don’t think there is a girl out there who isn’t inspired by Kate’s fashion sense. She’s so chic and glam all at the same time. 


Audrina Patridge
I relate to Audrina’s style the most for non-work wear. Skinny jeans and a tank are my staple summer go-to along with breezy summer dresses. Her style is so carefree yet still manages to be edgy. My nickname is Patridge...I'm THAT obsessed :)  She’s definitely classed it up since her Justin Bobby and combat boot days. 
 SWOONING over those glasses!

Katie Holmes
Shannon and I have a secret pact to not let the other start dressing stereotypical “mom-ish” when we have kids.  I think Katie Holmes is one of Hollywood’s best dressed moms …I don’t even have little munchies yet but I adore her style. She’s the quintessential girl-next-door-meets-chic. 

Marlo Thomas 
Most of us in this generation would recognize her as Jennifer Aniston’s mom on friends but decades before she was the smoker-voiced liquor-slinging mom of Rachel, she was “That Girl.” One of my favorite shows to this day, That Girl was set in the late ‘60s/early ‘70s and followed Marlo on her pursuit to become an actress. Her style was drool-worthy – especially the episodes set in the ‘70s. False lashes, big belts and over-the-knee boots…..definitely trends I’ve come to incorporate into my modern day closet.Seriously, a good pair of falsy lashes are a well-worth investment!

This post could go on forever buuut….maybe I’ll save the rest for another day! ;)

Who’s your style icon?

I expect to see pics now of you wearing false eyelashes and over the knee boots.

LOOVVEE Kate Middleton, but (and this is coming from a girl who always wants to be skinnier) but she is starting to look starved.

Gaga is wayyyy too much... but good for her for always being herself

I LOVE Kate Middleton but Rissy's right - she looks starved. I hope she stays healthy.

I also love Katie Holmes' mom style. I hope to be that stylish when I'm a mom.

looooved this post. kate middleton and i don't share the same style but i LOVE her look! totally loving audrina's look.

i think my style is too eclectic to just pick one icon - i love so many styles and love putting them all together. and are you on pinterest? i think you'd love that - keeps all my fashion inspiration somewhat organized. ;)

YOU and SHANNON! seriously. i stalk your albums (because you know i don't enjoy anything of that sort...;)) and get ideas! because let's face it - i'm really not going to try those "in for this season" styles modeled in my 17 magazine.
i really love kate middleton, too! i love how classic her style is, yet still chic.
i love your mom rule! please, please, please comment on a picture if a mom outfit is sported in any!
