As far as fashion muses go, we’ve got more than a few these days. What can we say? There are just a slew of stylish ladies out there doing their things and we are here for all of it. One lady we’re going particularly gaga for? Blogger babe extraordinaire Cara Jourdan.
Cara’s been sharing her love of fashion, travel, and lifestyle since 2011. Aside from the outfit inspiration she serves up on the regular, Jourdan inspires us toward travel and adventure as she’s often pictured atop cliffs, lounging in waterfalls, sprawling on the beach or enjoying the open seas on a boat. You know, just living.
One look at Cara’s feed and it’s pretty easy to identify why we’re crushing on her style so hard. She’s been called “the quintessential summer girl” before and we can’t really disagree — just peep her in this matching crop top two piece set. With a woven bag, delicate necklace and retro cat-eye sunglasses, she’s got the beach babe thing on lock without looking like she’s trying too hard. Yes, please.
Cara’s got a knack for putting together outfits that are sweet and sexy at the same time, combined with a healthy dose of current trends. Her vibe always feels effortless and carefree, but still fashion. Ie: when this babe does an off the shoulder floral sundress, she doesn’t feel the need to pile on a ton of extra “stuff” – she just adds some gorgeous beachy waves and a whole lot of confidence. We dig it.
We love how Cara bounces between boho, flirty, and retro vibes — and usually executes a masterful blend of all three. There’s always an air of throwback style to her looks, like The Beach Boys’ “California Girls” should be playing in the background of each of her snaps. Case in point: This tie-front dress and cat-eyes look, complete with vintage-inspired necklaces, Brigitte Bardot-esque updo, and a classic car backdrop.
Perhaps most importantly of all, Cara’s style is always true to her. She describes herself as a “sun seeker x fashion lover x adventurer,” and whether she’s rocking an embroidered caftan and oversized sunnies or a picnic-ready gingham dress with straw bag and espadrilles, this babe is always giving us, well, all of that.
