NANCY AND STEVE

What do Nancy Drew and Steve Jobs have in common? Nothing...until now.
I grew up reading Nancy Drew mysteries. I'm also a Millennial, a product of the Steve Jobs generation. I really shouldn't be surprised that in my 19th year of living, Nancy and Steve are my biggest style inspirations. Why? Let me explain.

Nancy is a classy lady, through and through. She solves crimes in pencil skirts and kitten heels. Though the covers were slightly abstract, I can only imagine she wore pearls and bows and ruffle blouses as well. And while she probably would have scoffed at Steve Jobs sneakers (you and me both, Nanc,) there's something to be said about his simplistic style. First of all, a good black turtleneck is a gift from the heavens and a saving grace on "I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR" days. And finally, he wore the same thing every day. How boring, but also brave and inspiring. Steve's wardrobe is the epitome of minimal simplicity and wonderful in every way.

Trade the sneakers for kitten heels and you've got yourself my wardrobe inspiration for the year.

Nancy and Steve. BOWS AND BLACK TURTLENECKS!
Amen.
