When it comes to style and fashion, most of us take note of what's trending in celebrity style and fashion news.  But there comes a time when we feel a pull to make style a priority in our lives and we want to get serious about "the look" we portray to the world.  When you reach this point in your style life, it will become necessary to find inspiration in other places besides magazines and red carpet affairs.  It also becomes necessary to start paying attention to the details and what best complements your lifestyle.   

Historic style icons are the perfect guide for style inspiration.  Here are a few that always peak my interest and I hope they do yours as well!  Pay attention to the details and you don't have to choose just one either. Mix it up and take your style cues from them all!

At Home: Stylish and Comfy!

You think it's impossible right?  Nothing to resort to but a ripped t-shirt and old yoga pants when you're relaxing at home? Well let me tell you a funny story. Today I had on my favorite black lounge pants by Gilligan and O'Malley that I got from Target a few years ago. They are still soft and comfortable and they would be stylish except they now have holes in 3 different places. I've literally worn them to death!  They are still okay to wear around the house just not past the porch. So today, I ran out to get take-out for dinner and I put my coat and shoes on and walked out the door with "the pants" on. No worries though because I was going to a drive-thru, but oh how soon we forget. I get to the drive-thru and the line is long, but when I looked inside the restaurant, there were no customers waiting.  So I parked my car and decided to go in and place my order instead of sitting in a long line. Only problem was, I had on my worn lounge pants and I forgot I had them on!  I didn't even realize it until I was walking out with my order! Needless to say, I was a little embarrassed, but not really because it happened without me knowing it. Tis the purpose of this blog post. The pants I had on tonight were nice while they lasted, but it's a good idea to keep your lounge wear collection up-to-date and fresh. It's okay to be nice and comfy at home, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with being stylish at the same time.  Voila divas!
