The Miranda Effect.

Tuesday, 26 November 2013
The end of my University life is fast approaching, and what a whirlwind four years it has been. This said - the most frequent question I have been greeted with by anyone who I don't see on a weekly basis is "What are you going to do when you leave?" A deadlined version of "what do you want to be when you grow up?" Which to me sounds much less threatening/terrifying.

And so I have given this a lot of thought, the days have changed from when I wanted to be a dinosaur or Elle Woods. My new choice is much more reasonable, though possibly ten times less likely. When I grow up, I want to be Miranda Kerr.

Why? Well, just look at her. She's fabulous. That's why.

On top of her somehow eternally youthful face and dimples I would sell my mother for, she is also my most recent new style icon. This is why:

I think the first thing to applaud her for is the fact that these are candid shots. Meaning she was not necessarily expecting to have her photo taken, nor ready for it. I think if someone followed me around taking candid shots I would be blinking in most of them and doing something like dribbling in the rest. I bow down to you, Kerr.
In other news, her style is amazing. I love how she dresses up otherwise casual outfits with tweaks like the bright Michael Kors bag and the velvet thigh high boots. Other recurrent features are her signature red lips (perfect for the Christmas period), the big bags (perfect for all the shit I lug around with me. Carrying around my dogs jumper is necessary at all times, I swear!) and the sunglasses.

I wish I was the type of woman who could pull of wearing sunglasses all times of the year, but unfortunately in Scotland you are lucky to get a bright sky for a week mid August, let alone the rest of the year. If I walked around in my black RayBan dupes people would probably assume I was blind and try to help me cross the road.

I am completely in love with her casual luxe style, and may give it a go and add my own tweaks to it the next few weeks and see how I get on. I will do some OOTDs so you can see how I get on.

Who is your style icon?
