Channeling Blair Waldorf

Who’s ridiculously excited that Gossip Girl is back?  I can’t speak for anyone else, but I know I’ve been going crazy without my weekly dose of the Upper East Side for the past month or so…I’ll refrain from posting spoilers from last night’s episode (mostly because I don’t have a TV and I haven’t gotten around to watching it online yet), but I’m beyond thrilled that it’s returned.  And as any good preppy girl knows, Blair Waldorf’s style is always impeccable and worthy of replicating.  In terms of Blair Waldorf, here’s the essential items you need to feel like you’ve just stepped out of the Upper East Side.

  1. Overstated headbands.  It’s easier to find crazy headbands for little girls, like this organza flower headband from crewcuts.  But you can make your own by taking a plain headband and attaching something like a flower pin or hairclip to it.
  2. Bright colored heels.  Blair is never spotted without cute shoes, of course.  Bright colors such as turquoise and bright floral patterns are a great way to channel Blair through your footwear this spring.
  3. Basic blazers.  In her Constance Prep days, blazers were a staple of Blair’s wardrobe on the show.  Blazers are a great “in between” piece for spring weather.  A bright pink blazer would perk up any outfit, or keep it classic with a more understated piece.
  4. Cool sundresses.  The summer episodes of Gossip Girl are filled with great styles that aren’t often seen throughout the rest of the season, and Blair is often wearing floral sundresses.  Now that the weather is getting warmer, it’s the perfect opportunity to break out looser sundresses in fun patterns.

You know you love me, xoxo.
