Audrey Inspired // Day to Night Styles


Happy Monday!  I hope you have wonderful plans for your week!  Mine is going to be pretty slow with some yummy food making and welcoming home my mom and brother Isaac finally after being away for 10 days in Germany!  oh, and let's not forget all of the movies I will be watching in the afternoons just because... When my sister Rebekah came home last week for the Forth she brought tons of her movies with her, and since we didn't get a chance to watch any (because we were too busy watching Call the Midwife. :)) she left them here for us to watch.  I started the series Wives and Daughters last night... love that series.  Okay, I've sort of gone on a rambling rage, I shall stop now and get to the point...


Audrey Hepburn, you all know I love her, so let's move on.  Her style!  She not only is in some of my favorite movies and gives me great hair envy, but she kind of makes me in "awe" of her effortless classiness and elegance (which are things that my awkward self looks up to a great deal...).  So now as I shop around in stores I ask myself if Audrey would wear it or if the item is classy and timeless enough.  Classiness and timelessness (woaw, hello "s's") are key in my style because who wants to be one of those trendy people from the 80's that looks back and maybe realizes that that hairstyle was maybe not the greatest choice...  Yes, I want to be one of those classy people that never go out of style... is that too much to ask?... Just think!  Audrey is most iconic for the 50's and 60's and is still admired for her amazing style 60 years ago!  

So I thought it would be fun and really interesting to put together two inspirational boards (one day and one night look) for all of us to gather inspiration (hence the name...) for how we can all apply Audrey's classic and timeless style to to today's day and age.  You may realize from the outfits above that they are not spot on to any of her most admired looks, but that's the way I wanted them to be.  I don't think we should try to imitate her outfits and style spot on but just try to keep her flattering clothing silhouettes and her simplistic lines, then personalize it all to fit our own unique styles (if maybe your style is not completely Audrey-esk).

I hope to do a more extensive post about how to achieve the Audrey "look" (please let me know if you would like this!), but for now here is just some inspiration to take away with you...    

BONUS!  You can shop the looks above so if you see an item that catches your fancy follow the links below.  (I tried to keep the price pretty reasonable!)

DAY LOOK: blouse, shorts, earrings, sunnies (cheaper version), Audrey's makeup inspiration, flats, and tote

NIGHT LOOK: dress, heels, earrings, purse, Tart Deco nail polish, and Audrey's makeup inspiration.

P.S. I'm absolutely loving those Warby Parker sunnies!  I think they would make the perfect "spurge", don't you think? ;)
