Guest Post :: 3 Ways To Take Denim From Day To Night By Lauren Lefevre

I am thrilled to have guest blogger + wardrobe stylist Lauren Lefevre, share her fashionable wisdom with all of my readers today!


I luckily got hooked up with Lauren when after the beauty event I hosted at Bloomingdale's back in February, her agent approached me and basically said she thought our blogs should meet and collaborate together because she knew our audiences would benefit from each others speciality in fashion + beauty.  Fabulous...I love meeting creative new people!  Not only is Lauren incredibly talented style wise but she is also a mom to twins, a boy and a girl (her sons name is Jack just like mine, so instant connection right??), and she's also a fellow UGA grad, so she's a bulldawg like me! Woof Woof! 

It's always refreshing to have a new spin on my blog, especially when it comes to a subject I don't typically touch on - STYLE.  What better way to start the weekend off than with advice on How To Style 3 Types Of Denim : Skinny, White, and Boyfriend.  Take it away Lauren...

As a wardrobe stylist who works with a host of women in differing ages and life stages, and as a mommy to three-year-old twins myself, I have a passion for creating versatile looks with key wardrobe pieces. In my opinion, the most fundamental wardrobe piece a woman can own is a great-fitting pair of jeans!

With that in mind, I have created 3 day-to-night denim looks, featuring three “must have” pairs of jeans for Spring :: a dark-wash skinny denim, a white jean and a boyfriend jean. On busy days, when you are quickly trying to transition from a casual daytime ensemble to a fun evening look, swapping out shoes and accessories can quickly and easily do the trick.

Look 1 :: Dark-Wash Skinny Jeans. The most essential jean you can own. The Paige Skyline Skinnies are my current go-to for comfort and flattery.
Shop The Look:
Day : Top | Scarf | Tote | Sandals
Night : Top | Necklace | Cuff | Heels 
 Look 2 :: White Jeans. I tell my clients that trying on white jeans can feel as time-consuming as finding a swimsuit. Don’t give up if the first few pairs you try aren’t flattering! There is a pair for everyone, and it often takes multiple tries with different brands to find the perfect pair. Many of my clients are loving this pair by Hudson this season.

Shop The Look:
Day: Top | Earrings | Necklace | Flats
Night : Top | Earrings | Clutch | Wedges 

Look 3 :: Boyfriend Jeans. A comfortable, laid back denim option, like these Rag & Bone ones, look as stylish with flats as they do ankle booties and heels.  

Shop The Look:
Day : Top | Earrings | Purse | Sandals
Night : Top | Necklace | Clutch | Heels 

Hope you are inspired to have fun experimenting with creative ways to style your denim. Don’t love your arms, or need a layering piece due weather? Simply layer a fitted jacket or blazer {I am particularly loving linen blazers as well as denim jackets this season} to these looks.

Stylishly yours,

Lauren

Thank you so much Lauren for giving me and my readers multiple ideas of how to style our denim this weekend!  And even though Lauren and I haven't gotten to meet in person yet, I know just from obsessing thru her Instagram and blog site, that we would be fast friends.  Hopefully one day soon we will get to hook up maybe through a Georgia football game or a weekend shopping trip to Atlanta!
