Sometimes I feel like it’s totally cliche to say Audrey Hepburn is my style icon, but she is definitely one of them! I can’t say I’m not constantly inspired by old photos and movies I see of her. As someone who grew up watching Sabrina and Roman Holiday and danced and sang through my bedroom to songs from My Fair Lady and Funny Face, I can say without a doubt that Miss Audrey played a role in my life.
A few years back I shared a post about the 10 Pieces to Build an Audrey Hepburn Inspired wardrobe. These are all items that I own and wear regularly! When I think of Audrey’s style, I feel like most people gravitate towards her iconic black dress and pearls from Breakfast at Tiffany’s or her pairing of slim black pants with a striped shirt. What about her summer style, though? I have to say those looks might be some of my favorites! Today I’m sharing what I think Audrey Hepburn would wear during the summer, along with some other Audrey-inspired favorites!
For the past few years I’ve been wanting to do an Audrey Hepburn inspired outfit. She’s always been one of my style icons, as cliche as that might sound. Cliche because I know she’s many other people’s style icon as well. But you know what? I think that’s just a testament to how classic, sophisticated and relatable her style was. There’s something incredibly chic yet approachable about the way Audrey dressed. I grew up watching all of her movies and being so enamored with her. My Fair Lady was my absolute favorite and I still sing those songs all the time! Since my bump wasn’t really working for my Audrey outfit I decided to save that for another day, and instead share 10 Pieces to Build an Audrey Hepburn Inspired Wardrobe. If you’re always been in awe of her style, I think you can easily recreate it. Here are the pieces I would recommend:VIEW POST

October Edit: Casual California Fall
Right now, I am staying in San Diego with my family for a bit before our move, so wearing easy, casual, and comfortable things are an absolute must. This month my style is totally inspired by our casual California fall.
When you think of a comfy style, you think sweaters. This cute grey crop sweater is so soft and cozy. For a casual look, I’d pair it up with jeans like these high waisted jeans that will complete the look and work with the cropped length of the sweater. Sweaters and jeans go great together! I also really adore this midi dress. It looks super soft and comfortable. You can really elevate this look with cute gold jewelry and accessories, like these hoop earrings or this chain necklace that are really trendy right now.
Fall is the perfect cozy time to watch old movies. The vibes just feel right. I’m very tempted to grab this Audrey Hepburn Fashion in Film book for some style inspo. You know I love her style! Audrey is such a fashion icon and I adore the legacy she made for us all. At the end of the day, I’d love to light up a candle, like this classic candle, and watch any Audrey movie. Doesn’t that sound like the perfect Friday night?
On the days I go out, I like to put on more natural-looking makeup when I am wearing a casual and comfortable look. I love the color and shimmer of this limited edition bronze and glow set. It looks so natural and beautiful on the skin. When you have less sunny days, a little bronzer can’t hurt.
A good crossbody bag is coming in handy since my hands are pretty full with the little ones right now. One minute Corinna wants me to hold her and then next she’s practicing her sprints! I love that this crossbody bag looks expensive, but is actually pretty affordable!
