Style Inspiration: Australian Street Style & More

The beginning of December may be near and the chilly season already upon us here in the Pacific Northwest, but I am drawing inspiration this week from sunny destinations. Much of today’s Style Inspiration comes straight from the streets of Australia, albeit from the fall 2015 season, still abundant with ideas, smiles and signature style. […]

Style Inspiration: Smart Style

Exuding smart style appears effortless as each item is either rich in texture or complements the outfit so significantly that onlookers cannot help but appreciate the sartorialist’s prowess. In each of the images today, the outfit involves only a few items, but the items chosen exhibit the woman’s gifted eye when it comes to pulling […]

Style Inspiration: Winter White, Camel & Casual

The elegance of white, winter white, worn during the late fall and winter season fluctuates sublimely between the two arenas of life that make up reality and requirement, playful and professional, cozy and confident. Whether worn with denim or over a pencil skirt or perhaps a sweater dress composed entirely of the resplendent hue, effortlessly […]

Style Inspiration: Don’t Put Your Skirts Away Yet

We may be deep into the fall season, but that doesn’t mean we can’t keep wearing skirts or even dresses for that matter. Wear them long, wear the sparkles, play with high and low style, don some warmth with a sweater dress, whatever you choose, have some fun, all the while flaunting a touch of […]

Style Inspiration: Bring on the Chill

Surprise! An extra post for the last day of October! A new exciting challenge I have on my hands with my relocation is dressing warmly often while simultaneously looking pulled together. The temperatures are already regularly below freezing each night and the highs don’t look to be topping above the mid-50s anymore. From warm coats […]

Style Inspiration: Just Black

Black as a staple is nearly ubiquitous in a each of our closets, but how can we mix it up? Is there an outfit waiting to be found that has yet to present itself to our imagination? Simple changes, additions and accessorizing can completely change the entire look. Enjoy today’s Style Inspiration for simple ways […]

Style Inspiration: Sweater Season

As I woke up on Saturday morning of this past weekend, the rain was light but beautifully steady, and the first thought that bounced into my mind was sweater season. Finally, I can begin to wear the cashmere, the merino wool, the fine knits that I have tucked away since last year. Whether a simple […]

Style Inspiration: Jackets & Style Galore

October is revealing itself to be a very amicable companion when it comes to style. With ideal temperate, yet warm days and just a touch of chill in the evening and mornings, only a light jacket is necessary as a layering piece. And as such that means the playful options are bountiful. Enjoy today’s Style […]

Style Inspiration: Paris Street Style & More

Paris Fashion Week began last week and will wrap up today, but not without revealing stunning collections and of course, eye-catching street style. As the temperatures were a bit cooler than in past years, the go-to were layers and less skin. Regardless, the editors, bloggers and models brought their A-game, and I must say, there […]

Style Inspiration: Playing with Navy

A casual, yet equally elegant color staple to have in your closet is navy. Similar to black, it can be worn with suiting attire to amp up the professional presentation, but it can also be dressed down as seen with Breton stripes for day and everyday wear. I have always loved navy as it works […]

Style Inspiration: NYFW Street Style Favorites

New York Fashion Week for the Spring 2016 season has come and gone, but I am still gathering inspiration from the many street styles that waltzed down the sidewalks to and from the collection debuts. While none of the outfits included in today’s Style Inspiration are shocking or absurd, they all take a classic and […]

Style Inspiration: NYFW & Chic Style

The tail-end of NYFW is upon us before the fashion elite move to London, but before they do, a few glimpses at the style captured on the street in the Big Apple. From Lauren Santo Domingo (founder of Moda Operandi) as seen above to Jenna Lyons of J.Crew below, the style is simple and chic […]

Style Inspiration: A Preview of Fall

The fall trends will be seen on the streets of New York, Milan, Paris and London starting Wednesday and into the next four weeks as Fashion Month begins in the ensembles that the models, editors, bloggers, designers and other fashion elite don as they make their way to the many fashion shows and presentations. I […]

Style Inspiration: Clémence Poésy

While I have noticed Clémence Poésy here and there on fashion and street style blogs, it wasn’t until I watched her performance in Last Love with Michael Cain that I took a serious notice of her style. At the age of 32 and standing 5’7″, she looks far younger than her age, but her knowledge […]

Style Inspiration: Amal Clooney

When it comes to style a new, but undoubtedly permanent face that will be referred to for many years to come, deservedly, for her understanding of chic, timeless style is Amal Clooney. A London-based Lebanese-British lawyer, activist, and author, she specializes in international law, criminal law, human rights, and extradition, and clearly knows her way around […]

Style Inspiration: Style At A Certain Age

This week’s Style Inspiration is slightly different, but I have a feeling nearly every TSLL reader, regardless of your age or body type will find inspiration when they go to their closets after having perused today’s selection of images. I am tickled to introduce to you Street Style blogger Beth Djalali, who is the talent and […]

Style Inspiration: White, Jumpsuits & Denim

Simple style means simple living so that the most important priorities can receive our full attention. I must say, I know that not everyone loves or can wear jumpsuits, but I am a fan. Partly, okay, primarily because they make the decision process minimal and are absolutely beyond comfortable. In today’s Style Inspiration, you will […]

Style Inspiration: A Mish Mash

The weather, while nearing August, is in limbo at times as I recently woke up to 39 degree (Fahrenheit) temps which means layers were much desired, and while we will have one last month in the states of extreme warmth, it is beginning to be time to think about early fall. So today is a […]

Style Inspiration: Cool & Chic

During the summer months the cool factor (referring to the temperature, not the popularity campaign) is a must-tend-to when selecting an outfit. As I was pulling together this week’s Style Inspiration, I came across a blog on Tumblr that epitomized the idea of cool style (in both senses of the the word, I would argue). […]

Style Inspiration: Simple, Chic Taste

Style need not be complicated. Once you discover and gradually hone your signature style as you move through life, owning your style can be tremendously enjoyable. Whether you become an expert on rocking stripes like the woman above or own polka dots as one woman does below, anything will look amazing if you feel confident […]

Style Inspiration: Shades of Tan

Having neutrals in our capsule wardrobes are a peace of mind when the weather temperatures are shifting or we’re traveling to varying climates that we may not be familiar with. Even when it comes to accessories – shoes, handbags, scarves, belts, etc – selecting tan, beige or khaki is more often than not a very […]

Style Inspiration: Shades of White

As someone who doesn’t bathe in the sun, however, loves the warmth of the summer months so as to partake in the outdoor activities, Chance’s oversized sun hat immediately captured my attention. You can shop it here, and while it’s a bit of a stretch budget-wise, it may be something to save up for it […]

Style Inspiration: Navy & Stripes

Nothing sings the style of summer like stripes, and as I mentioned in this interview with Kimberly Wilson as we discussed the topic of a capsule wardrobe, navy truly is one of the most neutral colors to carry over from spring to fall effortlessly. Have fun finding inspiration for your next outfit or items to […]

Style Inspiration: Stripes & Denim

When summer arrives, there are a handful of classics I gravitate towards: Stripes & denim. Granted, both can be worn anytime of the year, but nothing equals the casual aesthetic, yet elevated chic like anything else chosen so nonchalantly. Enjoy this week’s style inspiration, and be sure to check out this week’s “New Weekly Finds” […]
