Today's post kicks off a new micro series that I'll be posting a few Mondays out of the year. As the title suggests, this new "Monday Muse" series will explore the style of an inspiring woman and in each post we will delve deeper into what makes her image unique but wearable and how you can incorporate a few of her tricks into your own closet. First up, is one of my all-time favorite fashion and business inspirations - Aerin Lauder.
Of her style, Aerin has said that it's "very classic and feminine, but with an ease to it" and I couldn't agree more! Everything she's pictured wearing is classic but modern and always feminine - even when wearing structured separates like blazers and pants.
One of the things that I love the most about her style is how approachable it all feels. Even though she's typically wearing pieces far beyond my budget, she always looks so relatable, comfortable and relaxed. Plus, the majority of her wardrobe and outfits are made up of simple separates that most women already have in their closet.
From her simple jeans and beautiful blouses to her effortless hair and barely there but always polished makeup, she's a woman after my own heart. She regularly mixes classic closet staples like black pants and classic jeans with feminine touches like floral tops, heirloom jewelry and lace details. Below, I've linked a few of Aerin's outfits that can easily be recreated using pieces you probably already have. Just remember to wear your outfit with confidence and go out and chase your dreams!
