This is Taylor: she's a super talented graphic designer by day, an adorable puppy parent and she owns a VW beetle named "Hoff" (hilarious am I right?!). This lady is also a hella good chameleon, she looks beast as all get out in the gym (#goals) and also manages to look lovely and elegant in bridal gowns (she used to work in a bridal boutique!). May we all be as lucky:P
Can we also appreciate the mermaid hair?! I mean, I've been trying to grow my hair out for years but girlfriend has got me beat. So gorgeous!
For her first outfit I chose something easy for hanging around the house, chilling with the pups and running around planning her upcoming wedding. This combo of a slouchy sweater, skinny jeans and a cute flat is easy to throw on, comfy and upgrades the sweats we all tend to reach for on lazy days. A little half tuck defines her waist and gives the outfit a little bit more shape and interest.
For this next outfit I really wanted something that was a bit fancier for her. I have a pretty strict rule about layering when I am sporting a body con dresses; it adds interest, covers the fact that I can eat a whole pizza in one sitting (wood fired. irresistible) and it keeps you from the fidgeting if you don't wear tight clothing often (I find that most of us don't). The key to body con is to be confident, so throw it on with a blazer and pumps like Taylor and rock it ladies!
Our third outfit is a bit more for everyday, some black destroyed jeans, booties and a fun printed button down . This is also a easy to replicate outfit, the trick is to keep it all neutral and use the print for the added fun factor.
In general I'm a huge fan of having good neutral pieces in your closet as a base and then finding your pop colors/prints for the interest factor.
For example: I have a closet made up of mostly black, white, grey and denim, my pop colors are olive, navy and burgundy, and my favorite print is black and white stripes.
This makes it extremely easy to throw things on and not worry about "matching" or to pack for a vacay (nothing matches black like black!).
When Taylor was growing up she said she lived in hand-me-downs and thrift store finds and that she didn't really get into "fashion" until she was a teenager and buying her own clothes. I feel like this speaks to me a at very real level, I was one of four and totally lived this (I actually got hand-me-downs from my younger sister since we were about the same size *facepalm*).
