Side note: I found this button down at Forever 21, but the only issue when shopping in the store versus online is sometimes I can’t find what I bought to share with you all! I have been searching and searching on the website but can’t seem to locate this top. So instead, I picked a bunch of similar styles that I like so hopefully you can recreate this outfit if you like it!
Happy Wednesday! Welcome back to The Weekly Edit. This series focuses on my favorite sites, highlighting my favorite pieces, and will change and rotate every Wednesday with different styles and price points, so hopefully there will be something for everyone. Happy shopping! xoxo
Today’s outfit is all about this colorful and fun skirt that I picked up at Forever 21. It actually comes with a matching crop top, which I love wearing together as well, but for this look I decided on a black tank instead. I love a summery floral pattern and this high-waisted skirt is cheerful and really comfortable.
I have been playing around with wearing crop tops lately and fitted skirts, but I still feel sort of self conscious when showing too much of my body (that’s just me!) so I opted for a flowy vest to throw on over the top to add a bit of coverage. I also feel like it helps tie the look together.
Today’s post features a fairly simple look I wore out to lunch with my Dad the other day. I created this outfit around these leather pants, which are my absolute favorite (I scored them 40 percent off at Nordstrom over Christmas!) and paired them with a striped turtleneck from Forever 21, my Everlane navy leather loafers and a bright red lip, courtesy of L’Oreal Paris’ long lasting lip color in Infallible Red.
It was a typical Seattle spring day, so I wore a mid-weight light wool overcoat from Zara over the top of the outfit along with my J.Crew inifinty scarf, just in case it got a little chilly.

Happy Sunday! So as many of you know, I’ve been working on a styling challenge with Forever 21 and was asked to create three looks to illustrate different parts of my day to day. I decided to share a few aspects of my work life – you can see the other two looks here and here – and for my third and final look, I chose to share what I would when I’m out and about attending evening press events and launch parties.
I like to dress up a bit more when attending these types of events and I loved this dress the minute I spotted it. But the thing is, I’ve never been very comfortable wearing a body con dress without some sort of jacket or blazer over the top, so in an attempt to feel more comfy, I paired it with a more casual camo shirt-jacket to take it down a notch. Plus it gave me a chance to have a little fun with pattern play!
For those of you just joining us, here’s a quick recap of the collaboration I am working on with Forever 21. I was recently asked to create three looks that illustrate different parts of my day to day, so I decided to pinpoint the main aspects of my work life. The first look, which you can see here, is what I would wear to a professional meeting in midtown. The second outfit, shown in this post, is a perfect example of what I wear when working as a personal stylist, which is another part of my profession in fashion. When I’m consulting women and their wardrobes, or out shopping with them, I like to be comfortable in what I’m wearing. There can be a lot of walking and schleping clothing, which in the summer months, when it’s so hot in New York, I love to wear loose fitting clothing, so a flowy dress like this one becomes the perfect uniform for me.
