There is inspiration all around us, and while the blogs are a great place to see what women are wearing, I also love to watch women around me and learn and receive inspiration from them. This past week was a gathering of the San Antonio chapter of Fashion Group International and I have been honored to be a part of this organization for a few years. Such vibrant, inspirational women…and you may be surprised to know, all very kind and down-to-earth.
I have introduced you to this lovely lady before, Xitlalt (marketing director of our local Neiman Marcus). She is my personal style icon and such an inspiration in the areas of community service and mentorship to others. I always make note of what Xitlalt is wearing. This is a simple pair of white pants, with a beautiful white top, 3 different gold necklaces, and a large silk scarf thrown over the look. She is also wearing several gold bangles. Now, while her selections were probably much more higher end than mine would be, I immediately thought…I can do this! I could style a very similar look and make it work…and I plan to try. She always inspires me with her chic, creative style. Because of Xitlalt, I am in search of the perfect pair of metallic sneakers…she wore them to an event in New York recently and I loved the entire style.
Here, I was inspired by the color and her shoes…oh yes, great shoes!
These lovely ladies inspired me with their accessorizing! I never would have tried that bow with that top…but I love it and might try it now. Maybe I am a little bit of a fashion stalker, but this is how I learn, grow, step out of my comfort zone, and have some fun with fashion. It is women around me who always inspire me to do just that. And, make note, all of these ladies have lovely smiles as their number one accessory!!
Tell me about someone in your life who inspires you or if you have a style icon, please share what type of style they are helping you to try yourself. I have selected in the slideshow below some items which might achieve looks like you see here. Hope you enjoy seeing real women out leading their lives!
