Style Quotes to Live By



I’ve recently gotten back into Pinterest (you can follow me here!) after a several year hiatus, and one of my favorite things to pin are inspirational quotes. Revolutionary, I know. But, like basically all things in my life, I like my quotes to have a fashion-related twist, so I wanted to share my favorite style sayings with you today. Get inspired, throw on a gorgeous outfit, and remember that you can never be overdressed!


“Elegance is not about being noticed, it’s about being remembered.”

-Giorgio Armani

“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”

-Coco Chanel


“You can never be overdressed or overeducated.”

-Oscar Wilde

“Style is not a display of wealth but an expression of imagination.”



“Keep your heels, head, and standards high.”

-Coco Chanel

“You can have anything you want, if you dress for it.”

-Edith Head


“Elegance is when the inside is as beautiful as the outside.”

-Coco Chanel

“Your clothes should be tight enough to show you’re a woman, but loose enough to show you’re a lady.”

-Marilyn Monroe


“Bad vibes don’t go with my outfit.”


“Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.”

-Coco Chanel


Which of these quotes is your favorite?! I thought this pretty sundress would be the perfect companion for all of these sayings about elegance and being overdressed, and you may recognize the dress as one of my incredible $1 finds in my thrift shopping haul blog post. I paired the sundress with a pastel pink purse and my favorite white heeled sandals for a light and summery look. My lipstick is actually a pink shade, although it looks more red in these photos. Combined with my retro hairstyle, this look ended up having quite the 50s housewife vibe! Not what I had intended (it was a bad hair day, and this style was the best I could do), but I suppose the retro outfit is pretty as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I hope you have a wonderful Thursday and weekend! Oh, and can you spot the creepy photo-bombing face in one of these pics?
