Style Inspiration: Courtney Davis From Awesome On Occasion
I have always believed women would be better served from the fashion industry if models stopped being so serious and, instead, flaunted great clothes in actual life situations: going off to work, heading out to dance or for a first date, on a hot day with melted ice cream running down your hands—you know, the usual, real stuff. That’s just what you’ll find if you head over to Courtney Davis’ blog, Awesome on Occasion, along with a whole lot of joy, funny faces and honesty about the struggles of life. This girl has minimalist-yet-quirky style on lock.
Her style: “Classic causal with a trendy twist. I always like to be on par with what is currently, but I never stray far from timeless pieces. I want to make sure that I am wearing what I can wear for many seasons.
Why she loves fashion: “I love how wearing an outfit that you are confident in can transform your entire attitude. You feel strong and empowered and truly connected to who you are.”
The best style advice she’s been given: “Be true to yourself and your style, regardless of what is on trend or the next big thing on the runway. When your style is preppy, don’t wear combat boots just because everyone else at Coachella is. You’ll begin to lose sight of what you truly enjoy.”
What makes her feel beautiful: “I feel most beautiful at the beach, when my freckles pop out and my hair has that windswept look going. It may not be my most beautiful moment, but I love not having to worry with makeup or fixing my hair and being able to dress casually with no one caring. It’s the best feeling!”
Her female role model: “My mom. She is my best friend and my biggest supporter.”
Her take on graphic tees: “A graphic tee immediately draws attention to your outfit and is easy style. I particularly love when they are optimistic or positive quotes, like my favorite one that says “Team Optimist”. There really is no wrong way to style a graphic tee. I usually throw my jean jacket over one but I do love adding them to patterns, like striped pants or a polka dotted skirt.”
