As a fashion and beauty blogger, I spend a lot of my free time being inspired by other fashion and beauty bloggers. British fashion blogger Lydia Elise Millen is one of them. With her love of beachy waves, high street fashion and designer accessories, I relate very well to her amazing sense of style.
Since I discovered her blog a little over a month ago, I quickly added her to my list of style icons, alongside Solange Knowles, Olivia Palermo, Shiona Turini and a host of Canadian-bred style setters whose instagrams I check each morning while sipping coffee (@sashaexeter, @jessicamulroney, @aniab, @coraliescloset).
What I love about Lydia’s style is that it is attainable. While not everyone can run out and buy Lydia’s latest Bulgari bag (who knew Bulgari had a line of amazing handbags?), anyone can take inspiration from this gorgeous girl. She regularly wears perfect skinnies, ladylike blouses from the likes of Topshop and Zara, shoes that make you want to win the lottery for the sole purpose of clearing out Chanel’s shoe section seasonally, cozy sweaters and overcoats that are so on point and so perfectly British, I’m going to pack my bags and return to the Motherland (England) so I can wear this stuff regularly.
In addition to her massive fashion slayage, her makeup is always stellar. Never over-the-top, Lydia gravitates towards pretty nude lipsticks and glosses suitable for anyone, bronzed makeup and deadly cateyes.
So, go check out Lyds IG (@lydiaemillen) and get inspired. WARNING: You may want to freeze your credit card in a block of ice before doing so.
