MY STYLE ICONS


Can we skip the bit where I apologize for not posting for an entire month please?
And also can we fast foward to when I actually remember how to blog posts?

This week i want to talk about my personal style icons: mainly bloggers but also celebs who just get it right when it comes to clothes. It's been a while since I talked about fashion on my blog but actually i spend a lot of time thinking about clothes, shopping, outfits and the whole, and sometimes it's just nice to blog about it. Also I just gone trough a massive wardrobe clearout so I am feeling ├╝ber inspired..

So Without further ado, here are my main fashion influences and the reason why THEY ROCK.


Alexa Chung is definitely one of my biggest style inspirations. I just love her effortlessly elegant, yet tomboy-ish take on British fashion. Wether it's red carpet events, the Met Gala or a walk in London City center she just always looks fab. Feminine, yet never straight up sexy. Classic but never without a very modern, edgy twist. Fashionable, but always in her way. My body type is consistently different to hers but i try my best to replicate her style. Basic, well cut garments, muted color selection, lots of denim, and a mux of tomboy and girly. I love everything about her, not just her style: I've red her books, I follow her on every social media.. and I am still secretly hoping in a Alex-Alexa Throwback.

The reason why I love Lily Melrose and her style is pretty similar to the reason why I love Alexa Chung so much. They both represent the cool, fresh, rock and roll side of British Fashion. I have been reading her blog & watching her youtube channel for ages, and she has a massive influence on my style. Lily's style is very brit, sometimes tomeboy-ish, others more girly but always with a fun edge. She usually wears monochrome, graphic patterns paired with strong accents of color (mainly blue or red) and she likes to play with diffrent materials and layers. I would wear pretty much every outfit I see on her, because they are all so damn cool. Yes, I fangirl.

This next one is a two-in-one offer: Lily Pebbles and ViviannaDoesMakeup are a blogger-match made in heaven, and I squeezed them in one picture because their style is pretty matchy too. They are both very classy, grown up and minimalistic. A lot of monochrome is involved, sometimes sprouced up by a pop of color or a fun pattern. I love their usual uniform: loose top, skinny bottoms and boots. It has become one of my staple outfits. They are also the reason why I decided to diss my very long locks and decided to go for a shorter do. They are also the reason why I started blogging. They are also goals.

And last but not least, Samantha Maria ( previously Beautycrush ) , killing it as per usual. I wouldn't say I necessarily replicate every single one of her looks, because some of them are very statement and I don't have enough guts - but I definitely feel her vibe and try to incorporate it in my style. First of all: dem tattoos doe are literally goals, on fleek and all of that. She is just so beautiful and everyithing she wears looks amazing on her. I would say her style is statement and effortless at the same time. She used to wear lots of monochrome clothes and basic cuts, but recently her style has evolved a lot and it has become more feminine, grown up and colorful. She is still sporting a lot of neutral tones and I just love the fact that she always finds a way to incorporate temporary trends into her daily uniform. I love her blog, her youtube channel AND i swoon over her and her boyfriend Jason's clothing range, Novem & Knight.

PRIMERS : THIS ONE DOES IT ALL




I've got a true love/hate relationship with primers: most of the times I feel like they don't do much to my face besides adding another superfluous layer of stickiness and sylicone..
But then my best friend came back from the UK, and with her this awesome little number..
