Happy Friday, friends! Once summer comes, you can find me wearing mostly white because it is my warmer weather version of wearing black. I mean, I still wear black, but white is so fresh and effortless once the weather warms up that I find myself gravitating toward it throughout the season. Take this dress for instance. Have you ever seen a more perfect eyelet dress? I fell in love with it immediately and I never would have found it if it wasn't for my new favorite San Francisco shop, The Harbingers. Based in my lovely city, The Harbingers takes inspiration from street style fashion and brings it to their loyal customers at a price point everyone can appreciate. Not only are they constantly updating their selection of pieces to represent current trends, but I always love following along on their Instagram for some major style inspo. I can always tell what will be coming to the shop based on the beautiful inspiration photos that they post.
I'm trying something a little new on the blog today! For today's post, I was dolled up by the talented personal stylist, Lauren Farnoosh. Keep scrolling to read all about why Lauren chose this perfect day-to-night outfit for me: My favorite pieces are one’s that can be transitioned from day to night. This peachy Ulla Johnson dress looks perfect dressed up or down. The second I saw this dress at Alys Grace I knew it would look incredible on Tamryn! The color is phenomenal, the fabric is ultra-light and soft, and the cut is very flattering! Styling feminine dresses and skirts with tennis shoes is one of my favorite ways to make a gorgeous dress like this casual enough for grabbing lunch, so I paired it with a pair of Tamryn’s white Adidas sneakers. Next, I added this Iro leather jacket in blue as an unexpected mix of colors. The muted blue and orange tones complement each other rather nicely and scream ‘Spring is here!’. To finish off this outfit we threw on a pair of Illesteva sunglasses in this cool matte black aviator style.
There's nothing I love more than walking around this beautiful city of mine. It's honestly one of my favorite things to do on the weekends. Taking my time, talking to Jonny about everything and anything, and taking in our neighborhood sites gives me so much joy. While walking is one of my favorite activities in SF, dressing for those walks can be challenging due to the crazy steep hills. Plus, I like to walk long distances so for these walks I need to make sure I am wearing comfy pieces that won't irritate me halfway through a stroll. This Solika dress is one of those pieces! Not only is it super easy to wear (you just slip it on and go) but I love the bow detail for an added touch of femininity. I toughened up the dress a bit with my go-to faux leather jacket and my favorite patent leather booties and I really love how they pair with the softness of the dress. Can you say, perfect for a weekend walk?!
Living in a unique city like San Francisco often leads to magical shoot locations, especially when Alex is behind the lens since every image that he captures is a work of art. Not only is he incredibly talented but he is one of the most humble people I have ever met. Alex exudes a genuine warmth and he immediately made me feel comfortable in front of the camera (this is not an easy task, btw). I just love seeing what we can create together! On an unrelated note, there are some bloggers that do not believe in including photos of themselves or portrait work that doesn't encapsulate street style into their social media feeds or even feature it on their blogs fearing that it will mess with their aesthetic and brand. I completely respect this and I know it takes a great deal of work to keep up with this type of strategy.
Ahhhhhhh, breathe it in, friends. The sweet smell of FRIDAY! It seemed like this week dragged on forever so I am soooo happy that the weekend is finally here. With the weekend starting, I always find myself reaching for my comfy and stylish standbys, like my Adidas sneaks, my go-to blazer of the moment, and a denim skirt. I mean, it doesn't get more weekend-y than that, amiright? In general, I'm finding myself leaning much more toward casual pieces and honestly, it feels great. I love dressing up but the majority of the time, I'm pretty dressed down. There's just something so easy about those special go-to casual pieces that seem to scream "WEEKEND!"
