Girl Crush

I admit I have a girl crush or two to be exact! I have admired them from afar but obviously have never met either one. Kristin Cavallari and Tory Burch!  Why?

Kristin Cavallari

I watched Laguna Beach and the Hills when it aired back when. It was my guilty pleasure as I am not in their age bracket at all!  Kristen is indeed gorgeous with her blonde locks and California girl vibes but it’s her strong character that gets me. She knows what she wants, doesn’t put up with crap, loyal to her friends and family, and has an overall style that is so simply classic and fresh that I just love it!!

Check out his lovely black ensemble with leather leggings and sweater with Chanel bag! Very sophisticated without overdoing it.

Love this look! Simple white T (I need a new white T) with navy blue blazer, jeans and navy boots! And cute dog too!

Airport style with all white: tee, denim, and nude cardigan sweater. Also can’t miss that Birkin. Nice!  So chic!

Another airport outfit with black as the theme and a pop of neutral. Cute boots! Good look to copy!

Very California with the uber cute white muscle T, light wash denim and nude T-strap sandals.  Such a cool vibe!

This is my all time fave with gray t, chambray blazer, and black pants with matching gray suede boots! While those Louboutins are gorgeous (I am a sucker for gray suede-period!) I cannot handle the heel height, but I think booties would be perfect!! Like this one!  I NEED a chambray blazer too like this!

This mother of 3 and married to Jay Culter (Chicago Bears QB-swoon!) has a line of shoes from Chinese Laundry and a new book coming out called Balancing in Heels discusses how she handles her life as a mother, juggling a career, running a household, and eating healthy. That’s a long list of duties and I admire women entrepreneurs as it is tough managing your family AND a business! Thinking about pre-ordering her book!

I follow her on Instagram although I don’t have an account! Ha!  Would love to meet her at her book signings in Chicago, NY, or LA but my hubby is like you are completely nuts! I guess I’ll just stick to blogging about my girl crush!!!

Tory Burch

Hello! If you buy clothes, shoes or handbags, of course you know this trailblazer! Yes, she is gorgeous of course but she is a fashion mogul!!! Her style is her own bohemian mixed with classic and I absolutely 100% admire TB!  With so much fast fashion out there and old established fashion houses like Givenchy, Ralph Lauren, Chanel, Prada, it is tough to break into the market with a name and become an icon such as her shoes (Millers and Revas) and bags (Robinson). While she is considered a contemporary designer vs premier, her styles command top dollar in that category.

Tory Burch is a Mom to 3 boys and her fashion shows are pretty amazing especially when she picks indie background music influenced by her sons! The shiny brass decor and  upscale house feel when you enter her retail stores are pretty neat. It makes you feel at home when you sit on the velvet sofas with the lemongrass green carpet and sales agents asking if you’d like a water while they pull shoes for you to try on. Very classy!

While she came from some wealth, money does not buy everything and it takes hard work, determination, great sense of style, and mad love for what you do to be successful. And although I’ve never met her, she seems very soft spoken yet strong and respected as a woman! Now we are talking! Girl crush! There I said it! Now if only Rich Kids of Beverly Hills would come on with it’s 3rd season!
