“Everyone has his own style. When you have found it, you should stick to it.”
As I think about those who inspire me, one of the first women that comes to mind is Audrey. Classic, humble, spunky, and always in style I find her to be an icon in more ways than one. I may not look to recreate her exact style but I am always looking to recreate the thoughts she had on style.
We all love a good trend but incorporating a trend into our own style can be a challenge. I may be falling for gingham this fall but I have chosen to bring it into my wardrobe in a way that speaks to my personal style. Trousers are some of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe. I am always on the lookout for a pair that flatters, as dressing for your body is the best fashion rule you can ever learn. My new gingham trousers are no exception. Paired with a sweater for the cooler weather, I look forward to bringing this into fall.
By introducing gingham through an item that screams my personal style I am able to wear the trend in a way that makes sense for me. You could say I am taking what Audrey has taught us all and sticking to my own style but simply adding a flair to change it up, just slightly.
Today I leave you with this quote from Living Like Audrey “Just try to keep living like Audrey, making good use of all the wonderful things she has to teach us.”
If you are looking for a good read I highly recommend Living Like Audrey: Life Lessons from the Fairest Lady of All by Victoria Loustalot. It is a must read. A less than 200 page little book filled with quotes, photos, and all things Audrey.
