This is a brand, spanking new installment to my blog in where I share with you my biggest style inspirations that will include celebrities and bloggers alike. If I were to say I have a particular style icon my first answer would undoubtedly be child actress turned fashion designer and general 'it' party girl, Mary-Kate Olsen, one-half of the well-known Olsen twins. Ever since I was a little girl who used to religiously watch 'Two Of A Kind' I've always favoured MK over Ashley. That's probably a little unfair that I favour one over the other, but she always played the 'edgier' and slightly more rebellious twin which spoke out to me a little more as I was the ultimate tomboy as a kid! I had toy cars instead of Barbies and skateboards over dolls!

I absolutely adore Mary-Kate's effortlessly grungey, unkempt image that doesn't seem to need much maintenance, which is perfect for someone as lazy as me. Her long, sandy, tousled hair in the bottom right picture is currently what I'm striving my hair towards! Luckily, I have quite a similar hair type to MK in the fact that my hair is quite fine and naturally wavy however I'm about ten inches behind my perfect hair! One thing that is pretty obvious from the photos above is that Mary-Kate tends to favour black over colour although she always tends to bring her dark outfits together with a pop of red lipstick. Another aspect of MK's style that I have always admired is her ability to casually layer her outfits, something that I'm yet to master as my attempts leave me looking like a splitting image of my overflowing laundry basket and about 2 stone heavier. MK has learnt to layer without padding out her dainty, girlish frame and always has her (to die for) legs on show from beneath the layers, which keeps her look modest but still feminine.

I apologise for my lack of blogging as of recently. As you may know I've just moved house and have a gorgeous new bedroom, so I'm currently living out of boxes and suitcases. Once I've organised my room so I can actually see the floor once again I'll be doing more outfit posts, as I'm still trying to find a place to set my tripod up.

  5. I've always loooove Mary-Kate's style, in fact both of the Olsen twins always look amazing! I love how they always layer casual pieces to create looks which are really care free and almost bohemian but still super chic.

  6. I have also favoured Mary-Kate's fashion choices in the past, they're just that little bit more edgy. Her hair is always so perfectly dishevelled too. I love these types of posts, they're great sources for inspiration - can't wait to see who else you feature!

  13. I love Mary-Kate's style too. I really envy how it looks like she got dressed in the dark (in a good way) and still manages to walk out the door looking so stylish! If I did this I'd probably look like a dishevilled tramp! :) xx
