You have to give me props for my clever titles, even if they are a bit cheesy. But, as Spring is approaching (hopefully sooner than later), I've been loving looks that are Native American inspired. Clearly, I took the idea and ran with it, subjecting my best friend Katie to some ridiculous face painting (she loved it). Achieving this look is rather simple, all you really need are feathers, leather, anything turquoise or shades of brown, etc. You can't blame us for wanting to look like Pocahontas, who doesn't? And let's be honest, I definitely had a crush on cartoon John Smith.

  1. Fringes are the perfect ingredient for this look. These ankle boots do the trick.
  2. Like I said, add some feathers and you're good to go.
  3. Turquoise, turquoise, turquoise.
  4. Layered necklaces in turquoise and gold add glamour.
  5. I really want a leather satchel like this one.
  6. I love these Native American inspired shirts, you can find them all over these days and I couldn't be happier about it.
  7. Duh, moccasins. Need I explain more?

Inspiration from An Education

 After receiving my free month trial on Netflix, I instantly chose to watch An Education after longing to see it for quite some time. Consequently, I not only adored the movie, but the fashion as well! The 1960's were so chic and full of class. So here's a bit of inspiration from the movie that has been consuming my day dreams ever since. Fortunately, Anthropologie provides any dress a girl could hope for to become as glamorous as Carey Mulligan. Now all I need is the English accent..

 I adore all of these dresses from Anthropologie and you should as well. They depict the 60's perfectly. I believe bold prints and colors do the trick. And of course floral (it's just timeless)!

Let's not forget the details..
  1. I'm dying to get my hands on a film camera!
  2. A leather briefcase/satchel isn't just professional for an Oxford student, but also extremely fashionable for the rest of us
  3. Plaid? Yes, please. Sophistication meets school girl
  4. Oxfords are some of the classiest shoes, thank God they're back in style. (Great for guys and gals)
  5. Don't be scared, break out that red lipstick without any shame! My favorite is Red Revival by Maybelline
  6. Silky scarves are chic and fun in pretty floral prints, perfect for the spring
  7. Don't you dare forget your cat eye glasses to bring this look to its entirety! (J. Crew, I love you)
