Nothing brings me greater joy than knowing I inspire others with my outfits. However, I realized that since I am person who looks for inspiration daily, why not share what inspires me? So every Friday, I want to write about what inspires me – whether it’s a person, something I saw on Pinterest, something I read, or maybe a random person’s outfit that I saw walking down the street. Inspiration can come from anyone and anything at any place and time and I want to share that with you.
I wanted to start off this series by talking about my best friend, Lauren. We met in the 6th grade and I would say 70% of my closet has been approved by her when we go shopping. To me, Lauren reflects the true essence of a Cali girl. She always has the cutest outfits when we go to the beach, even her Trader Joe’s shopping outfits are always so effortless and laid-back. Even though she would much rather be in sweatpants all day, she always perfects her date night looks which is what I captured above. Since fall in SoCal is still warm, I love how she put together some fall essentials without being covered up. She paired her faux leather skort with a lightweight knit that is slightly baggy for a cozy look. She pulled the two pieces together with some taupe booties and a two-tone purse (which is definitely my favorite purse that she owns). This outfit, and all her other ones over the years, have definitely inspired my personal style.
