Meet Amy: She is a clothing designer by trade, an athlete by choice, and a Brit by birth. She's also the bomb. (Just ask me how many times Amy has babysat my dog...)
Now, obviously, I know Amy pretty well. We are friends, brunch buddies and she occasionally tries to drag me to workout classes that I am vastly under prepared for. When given the chance to style her I was so excited! She has a great eye for details and that unattainable European cool factor that we all try to emulate, so rummaging through her closet was going to be FUN!
Amy has a very pulled together look, she goes to work in a skirt most days, gets dolled up for happy hour and snuggles in cashmere on the couch in the evening. I love that. When I picked my favorite pieces from her closet to style her in, I knew I had to embrace the polish.
The first outfit I chose for her was a lovely knee length olive green skirt, blue eyelet crop top and a pair of pointed toe flats. I love this on her because it really plays up her small waist, toned arms and fair skin. She looks feminine and lovely:)
The second outfit I chose for Amy is a pair of high waisted jeans, a patterned sleeveless blouse and some great chunky boots. I chose this outfit because I think it really shows off her height (Amy is a tall woman at 5'10") and I think that her height is such a striking feature. Not to mention, those boots are kick ass and just so perfect on her.
Side note: tall chicks are rad as hell. If you are a proud tall chick, tell me how you rock it in the comments below :)
Now, I couldn't style her without some awesome dresses. Amy not only looks great in dresses but has the magical ability to be lady-like in them and never flub up and try to sit cross legged (I am guilty of this occasionally, hence my utter admiration). These two dresses were opposites but perfect in their own way. The plaid is a fun little number that gives off such a carefree and cool vibe, I paired it with some platform sandals because I see this as the perfect warm weather happy hour ensemble. The navy dress was a give-in because the style line created by the overlay is especially interesting and chic. Paired with tights and flats, I think she could be running off to a gallery opening or a dinner party.
I had so much fun in this session, hanging out with Amy and her beautiful clothes. Let me know what you think of my choices in the comments below and if anything spurred an outfit idea for you!
