I was at work the other day and a fashionable co-worker said she noticed I was stepping up my style game again. I said I was recently inspired and thought I’d start trying to play around with my wardrobe. Can’t lie, it helps when my sweetheart of a husband built a cool techie gadget that allows me to view my ENTIRE wardrobe in an app. Totally living the moment out of Clueless.
I’ve been most inspired by a variety of fashion bloggers. They each have a unique perspective on personal style and are HUGE influencers to the fashion industry in general. Here are my top 5.
1. Man Repeller
How I describe Man Repeller: Leandra Medine (founder of Man Repeller) describes it best, “A humorous website for serious fashion”.
Why I like her? She LOVES fashion and isn’t afraid to have fun with it. She experiments, doesn’t take herself too seriously and has an incredible eye for style. And I pretty much always laugh out loud on her blog.
2. Late Afternoon
How I describe Late Afternoon: Californian, sweet, fresh.
Why I like her? She has a feminine style with a modern twist. She also blogs about cocktail recipes and interior design. BEAUTIFUL photography and fun to scroll around.
3. Song of Style
How I describe Song of Style: Diverse fashion, mixmaster, chic.
Why I like her? Her blog really serves as a source of inspiration when I’m feeling confused about my personal style. The way she reuses pieces and reinvents her look always surprises me!
How I describe WeWoreWhat: Understated, 90’s, badass.
Why I like her? She has taught me a lot about minimalist fashion and how to add subtle pops of unexpected creativity to give an outfit the simple & cool look.
5. The Haute Pursuit
How I describe The Haute Pursuit: She makes me want to bleach my hair and only wear black or white.
Why I like her? She is the cool girl at the party wearing an old Adidas crop t-shirt and leather pencil skirt and wearing all the confidence in the world.
