Farfetch x Style Profile

One reason I started blogging, was to share my love for fashion and style.  I would frequently be asked where I purchased my clothes, upcoming trends and my style secrets.  It's been six years since I first started my blog, and while trends have come and gone, one thing has always remained the same... my style and aesthetic.  This post is inspired by Farfetch's Blogger Content Pack which I recently received.  The pack is a combination of Fashion Edits, Trends, Blogger Style and an insight into Farfetch's affiliate boutiques.
I would describe my style to be minimalist, refined, yet feminine. I'm all about the basics and adding trend pieces.  I stick to white, black, navy and grey.  I also incorporate pastel and metallic for a little fashion twist.  I'm big on stripes and love a legging.  I think it's important to invest in and build your wardrobe, to take you from season to season.  There's are a few of my wardrobe essentials.

I draw the majority of my style inspiration from celebrities.  I would say Olivia Palermo is my Style Icon.  She has the ability to make any piece look amazing!  I'm also a fan of Rachel Zoe, her love for fashion and style is infectious.  I'm addicted to Gigi Hadid's style.  I love her fresh and innovative take on style and trends.  As a child and teen, I grew up drawing style inspiration from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.  Till this day, I'm still inspired by their style.  I also draw inspiration from the runway, street style, magazines, online fashion sites and other bloggers.
Blogging has definitely impacted my style and the way I dress.  People look to you for inspiration.  It's essential to be ahead of the trends, know what designers are stocking from season to season, and be aware of new products.  I've really refined and defined my style since blogging, and I love sharing my style and favourite pieces with my readers.

The slip dress is my favourite trend this season.  You can really make it your own. Dress it up or down, with a bootie or sneaker.  Add a little tee underneath with a bomber jacket or trench coat during cooler months.  Finish with a pair of sunglasses and a tote or clutch, and you're ready to go.  I also love the off the shoulder trend, leather leggings trend and long trench coat trend.  Take these trend pieces, mix them with your core wardrobe pieces and make them your own!
