Style Inspiration: Blogger Jessie Richter

Hi #RADBABES! I'm excited to be back for my second post! This week I am going to share with you 5 people who are most influential to my personal style. For me, style is one way to relate to people, whether I know them or not. If you're wearing a vintage tee and we are in line at Starbucks, I am most likely going to tell you that I think your Tee is RAD! That is why one of my favorite things to do is look for style inspiration - people, places, magazines-- you name it and it could be an inspiration for my next look.That being said, I had a hard time narrowing down my list-- but after much consideration I picked my top personal style influences and am ready to share! 

I am obsessed with Kendal and Kylie's Jenner's sense of style. They are a perfect example of rocking the grungy-chic look. Their go to comfy look is a flannel paired with jeans and boots. Finding the perfect flannel is key for fall. I like how they dress up a casual outfit with tons of jewelry, bold makeup, and funky shoes. Fun accessories can make you go from slouchy to put together in an instant. They have endless amounts of cut offs, boots, and fun crop tops that always catch my eye. Kylie is definitely unique in her sense of style and I love how she isn't afraid to try a new idea. I think we could all learn a thing or two about style from them!

My fashion role model is actress Sarah Jessica Parker. Her bold yet classic style made her into a fashion icon. Starting with when she played Carrie Bradshaw on "Sex and the City", I became inspired by the way she paired a more simple outfit with a statement piece or better yet, a whole statement outfit! One of my favorite outfits of her playing Carrie was when she wore a watermelon dress with beautiful white heels and a black peacoat in the streets of paris. To finish off the outfit she paired it with a statement accessory- big, red umbrella. This is just one of example of her unique outfits that I think we all wish we could pull off!

Two people that are fashion icons in this era are the Olsen twins. Mary Kate and Ashley have transformed from what was once their innocent and pure look to what the New York Times likes to call, "a homeless look". The look consists of oversized sunglasses, boots, loose sweaters, and flowing skirts, with an aesthetic of mixing high-end and low-end pieces. They have started a couple fashion lines including Elizabeth + James, Oslo and Olsenboye. I love their goth look and always know I can turn to them for some street-wear inspiration.


Contrasting to my previous duo, I think Vanessa Hudgens has the best Bohemian (BOHO) style out there. She knows how to work the festival look, but make it wearable for every day as well. She is the master at pairing cut offs with laid back sandals and some chunky necklaces. Her Coachella looks were amazing as well. Her long hair looked great with a floppy hat for the cooler days, but when it was hot she tied it back in a scarf to look effortlessly cool. She definitely was born to be a festival-goer, and she dresses the part as well- a total #radbabe!

Lastly, I knew it was necessary to mention Julie Sarinana, the online fashion blogger who has been blogging for almost five years. Her style is very put together and is getting featured in many magazines for her awesome clothes. She even started her own fashion line that can be found on her blog, SincerelyJules.com. Julie is always up to trend and can be found mixing well-known designer pieces with up and coming designers. This is something I think is very admirable because sometimes you have to search for the best pieces when they aren't as popular. I check her blog daily to see what her latest outfit combo is and am always pleased with what I find!
