This is a question I get asked often - what inspires you? I can't exactly pinpoint what inspires me, because really, almost everything inspires me. From strangers passing by me to photos of bloggers I follow, I jot down ideas and thoughts in my head in my phone. I think you constantly have to reinvent yourself and it's important to take a break and be inspired, which is why this year I'm trying to travel as much as I can. Change is always good and I'm often inspired by the things that I can relate to. Recently, I've been inspired by people that I admire and their stories. I love listening to people's struggles and their journey to finding what they love. Diane Kruger, Blake Lively, Rihanna, Beyonce, Rooney Mara, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Jules, and Aimee are a few fashion icons I admire. While I think it's wonderful to be inspired I think it's important to know what you like and what works for you. Find your style and own it. It's boring if everyone looks the same - express yourself in what you wear, it represents you. I remember when watching the movie Me Before You (you should watch it if you havent! its amazing), I loved how Lou wore bold, eccentric outfits without a care in the world. I find people who are confident in their own skin very beautiful and and inspiring, what inspires you?
