When I think about the near future there is only one thing I’m certain about... my spring and summer look. And for this spring my inspiration is Kurt Cobain’s 90′s grunge outfits, because fuzzy oversize cardigans, ripped jeans, and chucks go together like peanut butter and jelly. I’m going to really push that girl-meets-boy look this summer with some hawaiian shirts and short shorts, too. Need proof that it’s a good idea? Just check out a DVD of Leo’s Romeo + Juliet to see NYLON’s favorite boy looking dreamier than ever in his blue Hawaiian shirt on Verona Beach.
The Face: Natalie Portman for Dior
Who can ever forget Natalie Portman’s Miss Dior Ads!? The dreaminess of the Miss Dior Cherie video ad takes me back to being 15, crushing hard on my high school sweetheart--you can almost feel the same passion going on between this Portman and her co-star in the TV spots. I don’t know about you, but I think is time to go over our favorite perfume store, get a bottle of Miss Dior Cherie and start falling in love all over again.
If you are like me and totally into soccer and models you should check out Alex Morgan. The Olympic Gold Medalist just released her third book ‘Win or lose’ in a series to empower girls in middle school and she was recently featured in the 2014 Sport Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Raise your hand if Alex is already in your It Girl list (insert girl raising hand emoticon here)
The Inspiration: RVCA’s Spring Swim Lookbook
Zak Noyle’s photos of his girlfriend Lauren Nguyen for RVCA’s Spring 2014 Swim Collection is my inspiration because I cannot wait for warmer days and hit the waves. SUMMER NOW, PLEASE.
The Sound: “Canned Heat” - JamiroquaiAlways “Canned Heat!” There is just no better way to get pumped up than with Jamiroquai’s groovy sounds, whether you are about to hit a new mark on the treadmill, or to hit the road with your besties for a little getaway or you are about to jump on the L at 9 am in you Monday haze.
