My friend Maria hit me up last week to put together a fall wardrobe for her on a b-u-d-g-e-t.
Maria lives in Laguna and works at Quiksilver Headquarters in Huntington — heading sales for Roxy & Co, so her life is beach-centric, professional on the casual side. Her style, less than conventional.
She needs options for office, meetings, coffee w/ friends, date night and errands. Figuring we all live like this to some degree- I wanted to share our fun.
I started at Zara- which offered some solid options at the outset – then filled in with some items from ShopBop and favorite boutiques around town. Most items were purchased online- limiting the run-around time and energy, an making returns a slam dunk.
I did make a trip to Zara just to check on the quality and hand feel of my choices, because they make the stuff look like a million bucks in their photography. Low and behold, I was really impressed!!
So, for what some spend on a new bag alone- we got her outfitted with some fresh seasonal pieces that provide a slew of options.
This week we’ll surprise and delight you with Maria Style, 15 looks in total/ 3 a day till we’re done.
Get ready for this long-legged-goofball beauty to knock your socks off and inspire you to get busy on your own fall looks!
