Lauren Blair's Fashion Blog

I have other blogs amongst the internet world, but the older I get the more obsessed I become about putting outfits together that are polished, fun, coordinated, and often times retro and/or classic. My instagram is www.instagram.com/laurenblairz :) I love dresses, skirts (especially midi-lengths), heels, bright colors, interesting patterns, novelty prints, vintage fashion and so much more!!! So follow me, let's have some fashion fun, and I'll follow you back!

This is by far one of my favorite purchases of 2014!  I was super nervous because I was unfamiliar with the brand and there were limited reviews on this dress.  Maxi dresses can be kind of complicated for me because I’m tall but not super tall and I’m very slender in my bust and armpit area, so somehow that combination can make maxi dress shopping somewhat frustrating.  At the last second I saw someone with near identical measurements as me post that the dress fit perfectly a size smaller than I would have picked so I went for it and this dress fits perfectly for me too!  I’ll be wearing this dress to a wedding in the future (and with heels so it won’t drag- I brought this dress home earlier this month to show my mom and just popped it on for a photo-op in my childhood backyard without shoes) and I’m super excited as this dress makes me feel like a goddess!  The feel of the fabric and the beauty of the print is also beyond amazing!

Happy Sunday fun day!!! Yay!

Good morning!!
Sometimes basic staples in the wardrobe can be the most fun because you can play them up quite a bit.  This dress is from Express and if you’ve been following this blog or my Instagram you’ll notice that I’m kind of in love with their line of skater/fit and flare dresses as I have them in most colors!  They released this navy one earlier in the year and I was super excited as I’ve recently gone gaga for navy over the past year.
Even though I’ve only worn them a few times in recent months, I also love headscarfs!  So when I got these amazing Nine West wedges I decided to make the whole outfit basically navy with complimenting browns as I already owned the purse and headscarf for some time.  My secret to dressing comfortably but in a stylish way no matter what is to match colors as much as possible!  
Headscarf- TJ Maxx find
Dress- Express
Bag- Melie Bianco
Wedges- Nine West

I tend to jinx pool days.  It’ll be sunny and boiling lava hot until I arrive at a pool.  Then the sun goes behind the clouds and it becomes 60 degrees out.  Oh well- at least I got a more interesting outfit pic yesterday as my friend and I still went to the pool but in civilian clothes instead of suits.
I usually compliment this outfit with more pinks (it’s a flamingo print), but I decided to go full on mint/match-y match-y instead.
Sunglasses-Forever 21
Dress- Modcloth/Sunnygirl
Belt- Different from a different Modcloth dress
Shoes- Guess

Anyone who knows me/follows my daily outfits knows that I’ve fallen quite hard for real vintage this summer.  AND, because I wear dresses and skirts almost everyday I’ve begun to wear longer lengths to weddings as my way of dressing up.  When I found this dress last month on Etsy from Daisy and Stella Vintage I knew this dress belonged to me and needed to be worn to a fancier wedding I’m attending in November.  Because i recently (and finally) did a Netflix binge of Mad Men I love the dress even more than I would have had I found it months ago because it reminds me of some of the dresses Megan Draper wears to some of the fancier parties they attend towards the end of the 60s and in the early 70s.  As always I was nervous about the fit from buying vintage online and had a few emails back and forth with the seller but everything was exactly as promised-dare I say it even fits perfectly!  There’s even a shaw that comes with it that I’ve figured out how to wear in a hand’s free should I need it-though I have doubts because the wedding in November is in Miami lol.
Hope everyone’s week got off to a great start!!!!

Sorry I’ve been a little hit or miss this whole month!  Between traveling and technical difficulties it’s just been one of those things!  Is everyone having a great summer??  I hope so!
Here’s a recent outfit featuring one of my favorite pieces of clothing: a green skirt from Modcloth.  I’ve basically substituted this for what a favorite pair of jeans is used for!  It’s comfortable, not too hot or too warm, and goes with most things.
Top- Old Navy
Skirt- Modcloth
Shoes- Nine West

So I’m behind on posting outfit pics on here from the past two weeks, but I decided to post last nights dress right away bc it’s not the PUG skirt as promised lol. I wanted to wear a bandeau with the skirt and utilize the summer heat with longer lengths but Denver had an unexpected cold snap! I got this Bernie Dexter dress on clearance from Modcloth earlier this month. With the sleeves, black trim, and even being slightly longer length than most BD dresses I was planning on saving this for late summer/early fall. But, since it was cold and rainy I decided to wear it now! Denver has such back and forth temperatures….I need to learn to not get my heart set on wearing certain outfits on set days! Lol, how have I not learned this?? 

Outfit details: 
Dress-Bernie Dexter
Bag-Melie Bianco
Shoes-Jessica Simpson

Pin up girl clothing!! I’m slowly but surely getting addicted to PUG! I got this dress two months ago and I got one of the harlequin skirts in the mail this week from eBay (wearing that tonight so follow on Instagram for an outfit pic tonight or early tomorrow-@demurelaurenblair. Of course I’ll post on here but it may take a few days).

Here I’m about to go out to dinner with a friend in Pennsylvania. The Jenny skirt is kind of heavy, but for night wear its perfect. I love that I got a pool background for the tiki print. So summer! 🌴☀🏊🌅

Outfit details:
Tank-Forever 21
Skirt-Pin up Girl Clothing/Pin Up Couture “The Jenny Skirt”
Bag-Kate Spade
Shoes Nine West

Hope you’re having a great week! Half done!!!
