I’ve been so incredibly bored with my closet lately. There hasn’t been a single day this week (except maybe one) where I haven’t reached for a light, baggy sweater and jeans. It might be a mood based thing (everything seems to suck) or maybe it’s just so hot & humid out I just don’t want to be bothered. Unfortunately, I have occasions coming up where surely people will not want to see my laziness/mood on full display. SO I went in search of inspiration. What is cool right now? What are people wearing? What do I wish I could pull off as some #GOALS?
Enter Martha Hunt. I don’t know much about her other than she’s a Victoria’s Secret model and a member of Taylor Swift’s “squad.” Whatever that is…After seeing an outfit I could really pull off, I fell into a complete rabbit hole looking at her style. Victoria’s Secret models are my favorite source of life inspo. I’m not even gonna lie I love doing Youtube work outs that claim I can get Victoria’s Secret abs, legs, or whatever other body part you can name. I WISH I could have abs this great. Anyway, Martha’s style is sexy and just plain cool. There were so many outfits I wanted to copy instantly. Most of them were simple but well put together and eye catching.
Below you’ll find some of my favorites and selected pieces to recreate them.
Midi skirt, sandals, blazer, sunglasses, leather leggings, denim shorts, camisole, flats, lace bodysuit (if you’re daring), crop trousers, metallic shorts, ankle boots, trendy bag
One of my very favorite actresses growing up was Kirsten Dunst. I would see everything that she was in, and, for a short time, Bring It On was my favorite thing in the world. Thanks cheerleading…Drop Dead Gorgeous was my “home sick” movie despite the humor being possibly too dark for a middle school girl to be repeating. Just the other day I saw her Variety cover shoot with Sofia Coppola (another favorite) and was utterly in love with the looks. They are so classic and perfectly tailored. Serious heart eyes emoji.
Shortly after I fell into a rabbit hole looking at her street style across the internet. Her red carpet style has been called “daring,” but her every day style is so chic. She might not wear the most trendy designer supplied pieces, but everything she chooses is quirky and suits her personality. One thing I really enjoy about her style is that we are in the same age bracket relatively so these looks are wholly age appropriate. Many of them have pieces I already own (which is one thing I love when looking at style) and they are achievable. It’s not some “off duty” model style that feels alien and uncomfortable to wear grocery shopping which is cool. I think it’s really cool to have with such similar style to mine to look to for more inspiration.
While coming up with the text to accompany this post, I tried to think of a way to explain what #GOALS means. There are all kinds of goals from fitness goals to relationship goals all of which are unique to the people perceiving them. According to a quite bitter person on Urban Dictionary, being GOALS means being someone everyone sucks up to and lives an incredibly staged Instagram life in order to be validated by likes and comments.
To put it nicely, being #GOALS means being something to aspire to. Whether you stage your Instagrams or not (everyone is guilty of this at one time or another) you can still be #GOALS to your loyal following. Nerdy COM major statement in 3..2..1….Social media has given us the power to curate the spaces we want based on the type of person we want to be seen as. Yes that often means staging our photos and retouching those photos so they look better and give off the perfect vibes.
Enter Emily Ratajkowski who is Instagram #GOALS among other types of goals. Her feed is filled with images of tropical locales, bikini shots (#fitnessgoals), and tons of fashion inspo. Sure pulling off her style might be a little difficult sometimes and there’s about a 0% chance of me ever posting an instagram in sworts and a bra, but if you’re daring enough to try her looks many can translate fine to regular life. I would LOVE if my Instagram feed was half as good as hers.
These are some of my favorite regular, every day style looks featured on her Instagram.
Bodysuit, Denim Shorts, Belt, Basic Tee, Sunglasses, Denim Cutoffs
Okay Rachael, I finally did it. praisehandsemoji
I’ll begin this blog by saying I spent a good day of my spring break looking at photos of the Hadid sisters. It wasn’t difficult as fashion month has just passed and there are sweet baby angels on Tumblr who log hours and hours sharing these photos. It makes this post way easier, I’ll have you know. So after much research and some coercing from my best friend to do this, I’ve finally created this blog post. In case you were wondering, I’m still very much a Gigi rather than a Bella when it comes to style. As if that’s a thing anyone should ever ponder….?
Bella Hadid is a model and younger sister to Gigi Hadid. She began modeling when she moved to New York City to study photography at Parsons School of Design. Since then she has walked in many fashion shows, starred in music videos, and also dated The Weeknd. Her style has the ability to transcend from high fashion to relaxed athlesiure wear with ease which is why her runway booking options are endless. Her off duty style is just as on point as the runway looks she wears creating the ideal balance. Bella takes runway looks and makes them all her own by adding touches from the 90s. The versatility she has when it comes to off duty style is admirable.
All of the looks below are recreated with a few alterations and a budget in mind because…real life.
