I'm very much an advocate for all things funky and mixed, but also have a great appreciation for a look of sophistication. And who other than Olivia Palermo epitomizes that to a t? I'm not going to lie, by no means do I follow The City, but Palermo has undoubtedly become a favored fashionista and it girl everywhere with her feminine, chic style, especially in my book. Even Vogue has recognized her! What I admire most about her is that in no way is she just "another pretty face."__________________
How do you decide what to wear every day?
When I get dressed in the morning, I think about versatility - and I'd be lying if I said the weather wasn't a factor. I love layered looks using vests or jackets, but sometimes I feel my best in a great pair of jeans and a fabulous T-shirt.
Who, if anybody, has an influence on your style - or whose style do you admire?
I love the way Scott Schuman captures off-the-cuff street style. It's raw and natural and fits my aesthetic. Menswear always has an influence on me and I think that's down to Coco Chanel I think many women are influenced by her imprint on fashion.
What are you style essentials - what couldn't you live without?
I can't live without my YSL Tribute heels and my Ray-Ban Wayfarers. Everybody thinks it's the clothing that makes an outfit, but more often than not it's the accessories.
I wouldn't dare let you guys off without getting something out of this post! Pass off as Palermo's style twin with each of these pieces I found that add up to less than $200 total! A whole outfit that likely cost about the same as her Ray-Bans alone!
