Fashionista Spotlight: Olivia Palermo

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!

Olivia Palermo is one of my favorites. So classic, sophisticated and chic without being overdone. I also dress for the weather and to be comfortable and this outfit you put together would be perfect for running errands in the summer or lunch with girlfriends, or just about anything!
