I love following trends, I love hearing about what's new best and what everyone is going to be wearing. But I don't know if I'm one to necessarily follow them when it comes to my own personal style. I like to pick good, solid pieces that I know are going to last me for seasons, maybe years. I'm very influenced by old Hollywood movies such as Roman Holiday or Funny Face. Sometimes when I'm shopping, I'll (not so secretly) ask myself, would Audrey wear this? Sometimes I'll mix in current trends (*ahem*, hi there platform sandals) with classic looks but with a limited budget it's important that I don't blow my personal clothing allowance on pieces that are going to be cycled through too quickly. That, and I love a solid, classic style and feeling like I could have just popped out of an Audrey Hepburn movie.
This cropped mock turtleneck is not only on trend, but it's also a classic and I love the little flair that these ankle-length pants have. I would usually go with something a little more tapered at the leg but I wanted to try something different. Also, these platform sandals are surprisingly comfortable. I bought this hat when I was living in London for less than 10 pounds at Urban Outfitters on High Street and it's been on constant rotation, I've worn it HERE and HERE on the blog. It's going to be a struggle to not buy all burgundy this season, it's always been my color weakness every fall!
