How to: Dress like a #GIRLBOSS

I was going to write a more lifestyle based post this week. I've been racking my brain about what I could write, maybe something about happiness or just general chit chat BUT I couldn't decide. All of my 'wondering thoughts' came to a halt the other day when I started watching the Netflix show '#GIRLBOSS' which is based on Sophia Amoruso, owner of Nasty Gal. My reason for this is because my eyes have literally been the heart eye emoji throughout watching it (haha), I am thoroughly in love with all of her looks in the show. She truly rocks everything she wears and so I decided that I have to share some of them looks with you.

If you haven't watched it then I'd definitely suggest it, it's going to make you motivated and bring out your inner girl boss as well as giving you lots of new outfits and style ideas.

 Lets talk about these heels/boots. Aren't they amazing? I love the black leather look with the solid wooden heel. The contrast between the two colours as well as textures goes perfectly together. Since laying my eyes on these shoes I've come to the conclusion that they're a staple item that EVERYONE needs. I can't be the only one that feels more confident in a pair of heels yet, I think these heels would make anyone be filled with confident. Looking to make pathways into your own personal runway? Then invest in shoes like these.

Throughout the programme, Sophia is constantly in red trousers and if she's not in red trousers she's in a pair of flares. Ahhh, if you've watched it you'll know how well she pulls off the look; especially the red trouser look. It becomes an iconic look throughout the show, very simple but also very edgy and intense.

Look. At. This. Jacket. It's vintage, it's colourful, it's different - It's everything a jacket should be and doesn't she pull it off so well? I love how she's styled it here, she looks like an edgy rock chick. The worn in shorts, no t-shirt underneath - It's so well thought out yet it looks like she's just thrown it together, isn't that what we all want from an outfit?

I think this is one of my favourite looks so far (I'm halfway through so that may change). I don't know about you but the turquoise bomber jacket is something my parents would have definitely dressed me in when I was little except it wouldn't be so fashionable because they'd pair it with matching trousers (I need to find a photo). The point I'm getting at is that Sophia has made me want something that I would have worn when I was little, just through how well styled it is. She carries it so well with a criss cross crop top and some flares. Talk about to die for, uhhhhhh.

This is also one of my favourite looks that I've seen so far. I've seen many jumpsuits in my 18 years but wow, wow, wow. This one tops the lot. It's a completely denim jumpsuit that ties around the waist AND zips up at the front. I mean talk about a perfect creation. The thing that I loved about this look is how it makes her look like a woman on a mission, she looks like she's going places in this jumpsuit.

 Well, look at this little beauty. A vintage Gucci jumper. Honestly, I'd be one happy girl if I was in a vintage shop and I found this little number and I bet you would be too. It's super casual but it still just screams 'style, style, style'. I'm seriously crushing on this.

 I don't know how to start this because I feel like I've said "I love this look" about one hundred million times but, I really do love this look. Underwear as a bikini? Yes please. It looks better than all of the bikinis I own as the pretty lace makes for much more of an intricate design giving it a lovely feminine feel. I like how she hasn't gone for matching underwear yet, the way the colours contrast and flow really makes it look like it's meant to go together. I need to try this look out.

Thank you so much for reading, I really appreciate it SOOOO much. Any comments giving me some advice or telling me your opinion are also greatly appreciated. What do you think of #GIRLBOSS?

Hopefully I'll be dropping a lifestyle post this time next week but who knows? I may get a crazy urge to write about clothes again so expect the unexpected.
