Real Life (See Jane Praise)

While I love magazines and enjoy perusing the latest runway collection, nothing revs my engines like blogs and street style pictures.  I love seeing what people are wearing in their day to day lives, rather than seeing models who most likely spent five hours in hair and makeup, all while surround by a bevy of stylists.  It's so much more inspirational knowing that bloggers and those stylish strangers you pass by every day are pulling together these fantastic looks themselves.  

Below are two examples of what I love about street style.  While the women are impeccably dressed, it's also believable--not everyone can run around the city in six-inch heels all day!  Simple, attainable, and realistic:


I'm hopeful that my personal style will continue to grow and thrive, no matter how old I become.  I'm sure many of you would agree that your style is constantly evolving, because if it isn't, it wouldn't be fun anymore.  And if it isn't fun, what's the point? 

Thanks for your constant inspiration and ideas, everyone!

I love both of these looks and totally agree on the street style inspiration. If you can't wear it what's the use? Except for those crazy a** shoes I just bought. Seriously. I put them on and wore them all day in my robe. Then at night hobbled around like a kid in my mom's high heels. I'm addicted.

ps-you could totally rock that last look like no other. l-e-g-s.

Love both of these outfits! I totally agree...I'm not one to be running around town in sky high heels. It's nice to see real outfits, with real shoes...flats! I do appreciate and love heels like most girls, I just don't spend a lot of time in them.

Great inspiration!
