Style Inspiration: Helen Mirren as Elinor in Inkheart

These are the kind of thing I always keep an eye out for in op shops and the like, unfortunately this style is not particularly popular. I am not much into long sleeved, high necked blouses at the moment, I am a bit tired of that from wearing them so much this year! The jackets are amazing though.

I definitely think that my style does tend more towards comfortable these days too, and she really pulls off outfits that look stylish but comfy.

  1. I'm not a fan of the turbans, but I love the long sleeved high neck blouses and turtlenecks you mentioned and her robes are also very nice. I'd like to be as stylish, but sophisticated when I'm older.

    1. Not sure turbans would suit me either, I look bald if I cover my hair because I have a high forehead. A velvet hairband in the right shape would look good though.

  2. The jackets and head scarves! Love. I've taken to wearing a velvet head wrap and it reminds me of this quite a lot. Exquisite and decadent fabrics.

  4. Hi Laura, I love this movie and the book series. I'm not much into high necks either, but I do love long, unstructured jackets and big costume jewelry. Turbans? Nope, I'd probably die from the hot flashes they'd bring on!

    Blessings,

    Victoria

  5. Another worthy inspiration. I hope to be half as awesome as Mirren when I am her age. I even like the turbans.

  6. Hi Laura, it's too hot where I live to hardly ever wear long-sleeve anything, but I like the concept and some of the jackets.

  8. I love her turbans here! They look so regal. I've been wearing turbans lately, especially before I cut my hair.

    1. Turbans kind of make me look bald because of my high hairline but I am keeping an eye out for nice headbands, I have one good one that looks quite bohemian!
