We recently had the pleasure of styling and photographing our friend Amanda. I was very excited because her style is very preppy and simple, and she is tall, blonde and beautiful…so she was an easy model! She is all about solid colored dresses, chambray button downs, and classic pencil skirts. She adds minimal accessories and has an effortless chic look to her hair and makeup. I mean, I was so jealous that she opened the door with wet, freshly washed hair when we arrived and then only blow dried it for about 5 minutes, and the result was luscious Victoria Secret model hair (I spend hours to get the same look!). I selected a pretty blue sheath dress and tan colored wedges to pop against her long blonde hair and bright pink lipgloss. In this outfit she was ready for a night out on the town! And the backdrop around her chic and modern downtown apartment was a perfectly elegant setting on a warm summer night.
What’s your favorite look for a summer night out?
