People watching and outfit spotting

I love people watching, especially when said people are ridiculously stylish so I’ve put together my top 10 street style blogs to follow.

1. The Satorialist
Of course, the blog that started it all. Scott Schuman’s wildly popular site launched in 2005 and has been steadily growing since then.

The jeans that Mom wore

The pleats, the high waist, the heart shaped bum. Yes, I do believe they have made a comeback.

It truly fascinates me how some people can throw on an item of clothing that most regard as revolting or an absolute no-go and they look like they’ve just been styled by the highest order. If I had to put these on I’d walk outside straight into an old man wearing the exact same pair (who would then smile and awkwardly give me a thumbs up and a wink towards our twin pants) and then I’d run inside, possibly cry and ask ‘why does it always happen to me!’, throw on a pair of leggings and banish the mom jeans, that probably cost me a fortune, to the back of the cupboard where they would stay until I never gave them away.

The Mom jeans might be making a return for the seriously trendy, stylish and brave but let us not forget that these acid washed beauties might never actually have left the well rounded thighs of some. Even though I would look terrible in them, I can appreciate the girls who wear them with such confidence and are probably too young to know where they got their name from.

Stella McCartney

I don’t know if this old news but I just came across this Stella McCartney mohair jumper and oversized coat and I almost died! Its gorgeous and the colours are perfect for any outfit.

This is the top of the list winter must have with a lovely oversized price (€780) so for now these will have to stay in my virtual cupboard and maybe, if I find them in a shop I’ll PPS them and get to wear it at least once in my life.

Looking sharp!

I stumbled over this blog on Tumblr last night. I thought these black dudes looking so smart was pretty darn cool.
