GS Style Inspiration of the Day
This evening date outfit from Schnursays is relaxed with a sleeveless blouse and striped shorts, but still feminine with a pretty statement necklace and platform heels. This look is completely summer appropriate, but could also be pulled off as an autumn date outfit as well - just add a comfy cardigan and tights. Share your date-ready styles at Get Stylin’!
Today’s GS Style Inspiration comes from chloemontana. These shorts are so simple, but the scallop detail at the bottom really makes them stand out. A lace top complete this sweet, vintage-like look. Adding lace is great because it gives the outfit more dimensions and allows it to really catch the eye.

You might be asking yourself, what exactly is a Man Repeller?
According to Leandra Medine, founder of The Man Repeller blog, a Man Repeller is…
Origin: 2009-10; < repellius (ptp. of repellia to eliminate male attention), equiv. to L repel- (s. of repellix) unattractive, celibate, paris fashion week, M.C. Hammer + -repel-ler
outfitting oneself in a sartorially offensive way that will result in repelling members of the opposite sex. This includes but is not limited to harem pants, boyfriend jeans, overalls (see:human repelling), shoulder pads, full length jumpsuits, jewelry that resembles violent weaponry and clogs.
–verb (used without object),-pell·ing, -pell·ed.
to commit the act of repelling men:
Girl 1: What are you wearing tonight?
Girl 2: My sweet lime green drop crotch utility pants
Girl 1: Oh, so we’re man repelling tonight?

Susanna Lau, aka Susie Bubble, has been blogging about her fabulous fashion experiences and observations since 2006, and her blog Style Bubble is still one of my favorites. Lau’s personal style is a quirky balance between avant-garde and aspirational, and as a former editor of Dazed Digital she never forgets to highlight exciting up-and-comers in all aspects of the fashion industry. Though most outfits aren’t exactly budget-friendly, the blog is great inspiration and eye candy.

Though tweedandvulture says this outfit is meant for flying, I think it would work for any casual occasion. The top is a fun pop of bright color that can be worn casually like this or dressed up another time. The matching beanie and flats are comfortably chic, and the printed trousers make the whole outfit a little funky. Share your own outfits and inspiration on Get Stylin’!
