Let’s go ahead and get this week off to a good start with some inspirational photos of cute clothes, great outfits, and stellar accessorizing. Motivation, if you will, for a week full of new and exciting looks for the rest of us.
Layering at its finest. The grey tuxedo blazer over the dark hued tunic was an inspired choice, not to mention the boots and bag are absolutely stunning!
A basic H&M shift is anything but basic when Sincerely Jules gets ahold of it. She spices the look up with army green ankle boots, stacked chunky bracelets and a coral Banana Republic cross-body bag. Well done!
How do you like the “ombre” hair? It’s becoming quite the trend these days and Sincerely Jules (brunette) and Late Afternoon (blonde) are two of my favorite examples of how best to pull this look off while sticking to the colors & styles that suit you best.
Despite being relatively simplistic this look comes across as chic and very well put together. How does she do it? She pairs great basics together and puts the emphasis on gorgeous accessories.
Oh course I love the polka dot pants here, but what really drew my eye was the sheer blouse/statement necklace/blazer combo. It's a really fun, interesting way to mix those pieces.
Getting deja vu? Poppy Delevingne wore these same Topshop polka dot trousers during London Fashion Week last month. Who do you think put together a better look using these adorable pants?
Such a gorgeous, well styled look. I love the red and black combo and the brightly colored pleated skirt. Dramatic but still Springy.
A printed dress can be incredibly cute & fun if it's done right. This Eiffel Tower mini is perfection when paired with a royal blue velvet blazer, grey booties & a hat. I love the visible grey socks!
I like the printed, ladylike blouse paired with the slightly flared school-girl skirt. It's youthful and a little bit flirty, but modest.
Modelinia has caught on that Miss Miranda Kerr’s street style is something we all want to emulate – Shop 7 of Miranda Kerr’s Effortless Street Style Looks!
Could Coco look any more amazing? She's got the 70's look nailed with her printed silk dress, over-the-knee boots, and black fedora. I absolutely love her coat - the faux fur collar & double-breasted buttons are too cute.
I love the simplicity of this look. Layering black is something that I do frequently so its nice to see an example of it done well. The shirt tucked in is a great final touch.
Which look was your favorite?
Yes, the following are not outfits, but I just HAD to share these mouth-watering photos with you all. If these don’t improve your Monday, nothing can.
Welcome back to Moi Contre La Vie for a handful of beautiful shots from the last week. From celebrities to bloggers to editorials, these are some of my favorite photographs from the last week.
I love love love the art of mixing high and low and what better than a well-loved sweatshirt paired with a cute sequined miniskirt? Such a great look!
Miranda Kerr looking supermodel chic in leather pants and a simple white button down in NYC.
Emmy Rossum looked great in multi-colored tweed Carolina Herrera on Live With Kelly. I like that its ladylike but still fun and has a youthful feeling.
Swedish blogger Kayture is Spring-ready in a belted daffodil-colored lace dress and boyfriend blazer. I especially like the two toned shoes & similarly colored bag. Too cute.
These striped trousers are great and could probably make an outfit all on their own, but Flavia from Lookbook.nu wisely paired them with a fitted blazer, stacked bracelets and a ridiculously cute skull embossed clutch.
Zara's not just for the ladies, believe me! Alexander's stunning gray blazer is from Zara but what I'm really pining for is his bag. Tres chic!
Kate Beckinsale brought her A-game to the Underworld: Awakening premiere in Madrid. The scarlet Michael Kors dress was a striking color and flattering silhouette. Different shoes would have been even better though I think...
Streetstyle photographer Jane Keltner de Valle stands out in the crowd in this seriously cute blue shift dress with white Peter Pan collar.
And who is Jane's photographer mentor? The stylish and gorgeous Hanneli Mustaparta of course. Jealous much? Ya - Me too.
See their story in the very cute Teen Vogue article here
Not sure how to pair your two-toned blouse? You can't go wrong with jeans. Her accessories are absolutely amazing, I want that necklace!
Back later today with Spring 2012 Couture Streetstyle and Front Row Fashion. Didn’t get a chance to check out the runway shows? You can see my reviews here

Welcome back to another Looks of the Week post. Hopefully some well-dressed celebrities will help get you through the last few hours of this Monday.
I absolutely love her Alexander McQueen dress and his non-black suit. Tan & corduroy, interesting. They also did an excellent job with the minimal styling.
Fierce. No other word for this. A gorgeous double-breasted blazer with shorts, platform peep-toes and a vintage Gucci bag. Tres chic!
Polka dot evening gown... Need I say more? Very understated for Rodarte, I absolutely love it. Such a hard color to pull off!
I also really like her daytime Givenchy look. It's hard to decide what to wear when you want to be dressy but stay warm, and I think choosing a standout piece like this architectural coat is a great way to solve that problem.
Late Afternoon may have called this look "Dabbling in Minimalism" but I think it's the perfect amount of styling! The vintage-inspired collar, booties & matching cuffs are the ideal touches to this fun school-girl meets biker chick look.
Olivia Wilde stunned in lacy, black Monique Lhuillier and a chic new hairdo at the Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala. This dress is gorgeous and suits her incredibly well, I like that is manages to be minimal but still has interesting details.
And now I want to cut my hair…
There have been lots of 20's inspired looks on the red carpet lately but as I looked at Emmy here I realized that most of them have been gold - Gucci Gucci Gucci! I think she looks beautiful, this look suits her incredibly well.
I die! Think she'll let me borrow her accessories???
Lea Michel looked phenomenal in periwinkle Peter Som, definitely a step in the right direction for her - a direction away from short & sparkly.
