Outfit Crush: Gwen Stefani

If there were one woman I had to chose as my favorite style icon over the last two decades, and for many more years to come, it'd be Gwen Stefani. I don't always love what she wears on a day-to-day basis, but it always makes me take a second look. She pushes the limits. And her stage outfits are always spot on. The signature plaid pants and the ska influences - I wish the normal person (me!) could rock that look on the regular.

I feel like her outfit below, which she wore to an airport Labor Day weekend of this year, is a mix of ska and British rock and Truly. I would wear this in a heartbeat.

In an attempt to recreate her look, I came up with this outfit. If only I could find that amazing blazer!

Gwen Stefani Style

On a side note, I've been listening to No Doubt's new album Push and Shove on repeat but am not diggin' it. There are a few catchy songs but overall it's not the No Doubt I love and remember. Anyone else have any thoughts on the new release?

And I hope you'll stop by on Monday for Weekend Update. If you haven't yet joined the blog hop, it's a great way to make new friends!

I agree, Gwen is great and always relevant. She looked fab in the '90s and still does! Greeting from Atlanta. ;-)
