Style inspiration: Cara Delevingne and Eleanor Calder


Hey so this is my first attempt at a fashion post. I want to introduce you to the two women I look up to for fashion ideas when I have no inspiration myself:

Cara Delevingne:

Cara is one of the most in demand models, she has done catwalks and campaigns for Burberry, YSL, Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel and so many more.As well as that she has done films too, like "Paper Towns' and can also sing and play the drums/guitar! Whoa.

So onto her style, Cara has a very laid back style but she still manages to catch peoples eye with her combinations. She almost never wears crazy high heels on a casual day out, instead she opts for the comfier high tops or ankle boots.  Cara usually just pairs a a loosely fitted patterned/slogan too with a pair of skinny jeans which is the perfect mixture between a fashion piece and a comfort item. I think Cara has a very varied collection of jackets that she uses as a statement piece but also does serve it's purpose of keeping you warming.

Eleanor Calder:

Not many of you will know her, but after a few years of being a hard core One Direction fan I've seen Eleanor come in and go out of the fandom. So yeah she was Louis Tomlinson's girlfriend. I was always very fond of her, she is very pretty even without make-up (which i don't actually think she wears that often) and her style always classy.

Eleanor doesn't wear anything printed, her jeans are always just plain and usually dark coloured which she then pairs with a brighter top. To make her outfit more exciting she just puts on a few bracelets and a watch. Or sometimes she does jazz up her actual clothing, for example that white hi-low maxi skirt. But even that is so elegantly plain. Again, Eleanor has a nice collection of jackets, from just plain leather to leather with fur to denim or just a sheer thin cardigan. These four are literally so versatile so she can put them on top of almost any outfit and it would still work!

So yeah those are the two people I really admire for their fashion and take inspiration from. Let me know who yours are!

BooHoo Wishlist!

It's that time of year where you can safely put away the snow jackets and extra insulating pair of trousers because summer is round the corner! As far as I can recall, my 'summer' clothes aren't all that summery and wouldn't have a problem overheating me. It mainly consists of jumpers and dark heat attracting jeans.

So I started looking at BooHoo to see if they had any pieces that I might like, and they had a lot that i actually wanted. Now as much I as I would like to believe that 'a girl can never have too many clothes', I can have too many clothes. So instead of purchasing all the ones I liked I decided to show you them!

 These types of long cardigans are on everyone's wishlist at the moment. They are such a way of covering up if it gets a little windy without having to carry around a weighted jacket. This one comes in black or white and has small holes that come of as lace detailing. It's called 'Bonnie lace sliced maxi dress' and is £25.00.

This is such a nice dress that can be dressed down or up! It is fitted at the top and flares at the bottom and comes in Black,White,Orange and Yellow. I really love the top part of this, the cut shoulder effect really suits this dress. It's called 'Georgia cutaway neckline skater dress' and is £18.00.

 This shirt is another versatile piece, you could leave the buttons undone with another top underneath like in the picture or you could wear only the shirt but have the buttons done up. Either way it looks so effortlessly stylish and the ripped shoulder give it a slightly edgy style. It's called 'Marie sleeveless denim shirt' and is £18.00.

If you have any formal events to attend then this is the dress you want to chase. The intricate lace top makes it look so elegant paired with the white/cream bottom half. And the lace hem at the bottom of the skirt just makes it about a hundred times better. It's called 'Lizze lace skater dress' and it only £20.00!
 This is another on trend piece. It can make a simple outfit look so much more thoughtful and again, it's a great cover up. I think the sleeves can be extended so it fits your entire arm but either way it looks good. You can do up the buttons here too and the material is thin so it won't be heavy to wear.. It's called 'Neve long sleeve maxi shirt' and is £20.00.
 I love these t-shirts with cut shoulders. They add a lovely touch to a simple t-shirt and are perfect for the summer. This one comes in White,Blue and Black. It's called 'Yasmin cut out shoulder long sleeve woven top' and is £15.00.

Skater skirts are an essential. Arguments stating otherwise are just invalid. This one is so so simple but it can make be paired with an even simpler top to create a top class outfit. It comes with a belt which makes it unique and easier to fit into to. It's called 'Maria slub marl belted skater skirt' and is £12.00.

So those were the clothes that I wanted to share with you. Let me know if you liked any on these or if there are any you would like to share! Thank you for reading!
