Keep reading to hear all about my final styled weekend look by Lauren Farnoosh: After a long and busy work week, the weekend is your time to have fun, relax and be carefree! This single-shoulder ruffle blouse by Milly not only incorporates two of the hottest trends this year (pinstripes and ruffles), but it’s totally serving that carefree and laidback weekend vibe! To keep the look fresh and fun, I styled the blouse with these light wash, cropped denim by 10 Crosby Derek Lam. Boot cut cropped denim is my favorite right now! It looks great with almost any type of shoe; especially ones with ankle strap or tennis shoes, and it’s way more flattering for women with curvier bottom halves than the old skinny jean. Because San Francisco weather almost always requires some sort of layering, I topped Tamryn’s look by draping this blue Iro leather jacket over her shoulders. To finish off the look, I decided to add some contrast to the monochromatic blue theme, and add this colorfully eccentric Loeffler Randal clutch. The little pom-poms are so cute and quirky; it makes a perfect little bag to carry around all weekend long! The Milly blouse, 10 Crosby denim, Iro leather jacket, and Loeffler Randall clutch are all from Alys Grace in the Presidio of San Francisco.
When it comes to finding my perfect outfit, there are a lot of components that I take into consideration. Is it comfortable? Could I wear it to a variety of places? Will I want to wear it often? Do I look cute in it? That last one is kind of a given when I'm trying to find new clothes, but still a valid question I ask myself. If I don't feel like I look good in something, why keep it? This set is perfect for weekend adventures because it is so damn easy to wear and it checks all of my criteria that I require from the pieces that I wear. Plus, the linen and the stripes make it so wearable that I know I'll be reaching for this set all summer long. Also, I love that I could wear each piece separately! Hello, outfit combinations! Basically, when it comes to the perfect summer outfit, this set is it for me.
Work attire can get pretty boring really fast! Luckily for those of us working in the bay, the dress code for most offices are usually fairly relaxed, and business casual offers some room for personalization and creativity in your everyday work wear. For this look I styled Tamryn in this chic high-neck Saloni blouse and a loosely fitted blazer to give it that touch of professionalism we need . A high-neck on any silhouette is great for lengthening the body and always helps to create a sophisticated vibe. To dress this look down a bit and add some “too cool for school” elements I paired the top with white high-waisted Frame denim and some blue reflective sunglasses. While I am usually a die-hard fan of tucking shirts into high-waisted pants, I wanted to keep this look relaxed and since the blazer already helped to emphasize Tamryn’s shape “the all mighty” tuck was not necessary.
When it comes to summer dressing, the first thing that pops in my mind are dresses. Every single spring, I always go a little buying a bunch of dresses that I just have to have for the warmer months even though my closet is literally exploding with hundreds more. However, I feel like I'm starting to have a "type" when it comes to dresses that I wear most often. Those dresses are often midi length, have sleeves, and get bonus points if they are striped. I mentioned this a little while ago, but I am majorly feeling the color red of spring and summer. There's just something that feels so fresh about this color for me, especially since I don't usually gravitate toward it.
Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a great week! Another styled look brought to you by Lauren Farnoosh is taking over Wannabe Fashion Blogger today. Have a read: In the animal kingdom spring is known as mating season, so naturally in the human world it’s known as dating season! I put together a sweet and romantic look for the perfect night out with that special someone. Besides Tamryn, the main star of this look is this gorgeous black lace blouse by Delfi. The blouse is cropped and sheer around the arms and midsection, so to keep this look on the romantic and not too sexy side we paired it with a high-waisted pair of white denim by Frame. Frame is one of my favorite brands of denim, and I think most women that have tried their fit can agree. I highly recommend wearing white denim for a fresh take on any outfit this season! This high-waisted cropped pair look perfect dressed up with a sexy pump.
