my style icons

style icons

When I'm in the need of style inspiration, I often look to these ten incredible women.  And when I say 'style,' I don't necessarily mean fashion.  I love fashion.  I work in fashion.  But fashion isn't the same thing as style.  Fashion is a constantly changing concept, often based on newness and trends and things that exist outside of each of us as individuals.  Fashion can be defined; style cannot.  Style is something personal.  Style goes beyond what you're wearing on your body.  And each of these women has it.

(All sources can be found via my handy dandy 'style icon' board on pinterest).

And on a completely different note - I can't believe it's Wednesday already you guys. Weeks always seem to go by so much faster when Robbie is home.  We've been trying to spend a lot of time together, since he's been on tour so much this year without a lot of downtime.  I'm trying not to get too used to it because he leaves again early next week, but I gotta say, it sure is nice having your husband home!  We went to one of our favorite local nature preserves yesterday and did a little photo shoot with one of my favorite new springtime outfits (I'll share tomorrow or Friday).  I'll also be posting the details and photos I promised from last weekend's spontaneous adventure in the next day or two.  Have a beautiful day!
