Did you ever have a friend whose closet was always the BEST to raid?
You know the one: they have the best mix of thoughtful basics, standout looks, and those effortless pieces that look amazing dressed up or down. They always have the best new denim or that chic California-cool label.
That friend, for me, is LYNN LOUISA.
Full disclosure: Lynn Louisa isn't exactly an epically styled friend. Tucked into one of Georgetown's main streets, Lynn Louisa is a boutique focused on Scandinavian and West Coast designers and curated to perfection. I stopped into the store a few weeks ago and put together a couple of looks from their new Spring arrivals. Get ready for some serious outfit inspiration.
This top is so perfect for me it kind of hurts. Tucking it loosely into some dark denim flares gives the whole outfit some more shape, and I couldn't pass up adding this awesome fringe clutch. I could definitely see myself wearing this outfit day-to-day, but it's also interesting enough that I would feel totally comfortable wearing this to a casual local event, like a store opening or blogger happy hour.
Slip dresses are perfect for transitioning into Spring/Summer and are so versatile. I wanted date night vibes, so I layered this greenish-gold version over an eyelash lace bralette and topped it all off with a loose cardigan worn off-the-shoulder.
This "Paris" sweatshirt was too cute to pass up, and you all know I'm a big fan of comfort-meets-style. There's something fitting about a Parisian reference in a chic sweatshirt, since French style is so casually cool. Adding a statement bag dresses up the outfit (plus, how cool is this bag?).
And these are only four examples of my Lynn Louisa favorites.
If you're in the DC area, definitely check out their brick & mortar Georgetown location. For those of you outside of DC, you can shop Lynn Louisa online.
Thank you to Lynn Louisa for letting me "raid your closet"!
