Timeless Style Icon

As some of my older readers will remember, my ultimate style icon is my mother with her timeless wardrobe and enviable shoe collection. I take so much inspiration from everything she wears, and as I always have my camera out I managed to persuade her to let me shoot her for an outfit post - though she still wanted to keep her face hidden - she hates being photographed!

Hat: Dents, Linen Maxi Dress: Precis Petite, Shoes: Manolo Blahnik

I was thinking of maybe mixing some more of the stuff she's been wearing into this blog, outfits that inspire me, and not just my Mum, some of my non blogger friends too. Who would like to see more posts like this, outfits that are not just what I'm wearing?

  1. Your mum looks lovely her outfit is simple but classy. I love looking at 'street style' photos of what other people are wearing :) X

  2. Yes, more posts like this please! While we all follow you and like your style, it's interesting to see that of other people too, as it increases the likelihood of finding someone who suits your figure, allowing you to get inspiration from a post more effectively.
    Also - is it bad if I say that a lot of bloggers have the same kind of style?! So it'd be nice to see non-bloggers' views on fashion and what they wear, as they wouldn't perhaps use the online stores that a lot of bloggers create and most probably only bloggers or avid users of the internet use. So yes, do it! Your mum looks wonderful too! XO
