I’m holding my hands up to being guilty of this. With influence everywhere its hard not to be one! I take so much inspiration from Pinterest, Intagram, my friends… and hopefully its seen as a compliment to their fantastic style and not just me ripping them off!
I am finding its becoming harder and harder to be original anymore though as social media swamps us with thousands of stunning images of beautiful women, young and old with easily achievable looks, and always in that Instagram famous coveted piece of clothing [think about the pleated midi skirt and you’ll know what I mean] It makes me want to look like/dress like them and I’m not ashamed to admit that!
I always make sure I change it up though, I don’t want to be an out and out carbon copy so I’ll add accessories or change the colour pallet, use different textures and play around with length so the inspiration is there but I’m making the outfit my own.
And with that in mind, here are a few inspirational women who’s style I’m always keen to experiment with….
Jacqueline Mikuta @mikutas on IG
Jacqueline is just so effortlessly chic! Everything she wears has me screen shotting or adding to my favourites. This outfit is a dream!
Cindy @boho_addict on IG
I adore Cindys style and her home! She’s also a mum of two, which always inspires me to try a little harder!
Holly Titheridge @_hollyt on IG
I love the theme and tone of Holly’s IG, beautifully shot photographs and outfits to die for! This photo of her in a cami dress with the white T is one I’m desperate to recreate!
Ashley @amothersedit on IG
For me, Ashley has turned dressing like a mum into an art form! I adore her casual street style and I always want to try to recreate her outfits!
And isn’t that why we do this? To inspire other women to step outside of their comfort zone? There are hundreds of women out there whose personal style have me inspired to try something a little different when I choose my outfit for the day and if that makes me a style stealer… Well I’ll happily take that title.
