Style Profile: Blake Lively

Blake Lively

Whether she is filming for Gossip Girl, attending a red carpet event or grabbing a cup of coffee, Blake Lively always stands out with her impeccable style. I love her ability to mix classic pieces with trendier items and make it work. She can pull of literally ANY color - pink  and neon blue trousers? Blake is not afraid to play with trends and pulls it off with class. She has most recently been announced as the new face of Chanel, which is very fitting since she has worn their pieces so often in the past. It is clear that playing Serena Van Der Woodsen has impacted Blake's style so much that, at times, it is difficult to know if she is filming or not. This isn't a bad thing - I wouldn't mind raiding both of their closets!

What are your thoughts on Blake and her classic, girly style?

Ultimate Closet

I could spend hours checking out Shopbop's lookbooks and blog; both of which are amazingly full of inspiration. Most recently - The  Ultimate Spring Closet. I am loving these looks and appreciate that there are only a few key pieces so that I can duplicate it easily. Check out my favorite looks above and see the entire lookbook for yourself at Shopbop.

True West.

I am beyond obsessed with Marie Claire's April 2011 issue - such great styling and art direction with this editorial. It also doesn't hurt that there is some fabulous blonde hair involved  :)

How To: Parkas


It has been quite a while since I have done a tutorial/how to and I thought with this beautiful Spring weather, it would be appropriate to feature parkas. I love this as an alternative to the classic trench because it adds some edge to an outfit and isn't so overdone. Most parkas are made out of nylon making them equally perfect for those rainy April days. Since it is a somewhat masculine piece, I would style it with a flowy dress and some flats or even rainboots with stockings. I also like playing with proportions and love the idea of pairing a parka with skinny jeans and wedges.
I will for surely be keeping my eye out for the perfect parka for this Spring, most likely at an H&M near you. Just sayin.

Friday {DIY} Inspiration


Some of my current DIY favorites. I have recreated my own clutch similar to the one on the Style Scrapbook and it was SUPER easy/fun. 

Happy Friday!

Sweet Valley Fox

I am loving these images from Wildfox's Summer 2011 ad campaign, so fun! I have really begun to look forward to what the ladies at Wildfox will do each season; it is always super creative and inspiring to me. Wildfox always somehow manages to display a fun and sexy side and I like how all of their lookbooks seem to tell a story and have an underlying theme (usually involving lots of California blonde and 90's inspiration.) This season was no exception, highlighting some fabulous separates and great styling - btw, I recently tried on one of their tops and I could not get over how soft the fabric was! I am now a believer that the clothes are not only adorable but are uber high quality. Add some pink lipstick and what's not to love?
