Style Showcase: Krista

Today I'm so thrilled to present Krista from her lifestyle blog Lazy Saturdays. Krista says, "I share posts that range from personal style, to diy tutorials, to upcycling ideas. I also am a trashion designer. Basically I make clothes out of trash. I've even made a dress out of a car! I blog as a way to keep myself moving forward creatively."

Outfit 1- The striped shirt is thrifted. The belt is stollen from another dress. The skirt is Nanette Lepore marked waaaay down. The shoes are Anthropologie also marked waaaay down. The tights are Hue brand. And the glasses are from my optometrists office :)

Tell us about your style-  I love color. I feel really strange when I'm not colorful. You will never see me in all black. I usually have at least three colors on at once. I'd also describe my style as fun. Clothing is fun! And I like to have fun with what I wear! Lastly, I can't forget comfortable. I never wear anything I don't feel great it. When you don't feel great in your clothes, it shows.

What is your go-to outfit?

I just became a mom several months ago and my clothing choices have definitely changed! My go to outfit now is a comfy skirt (fits my mamma hips while I'm waiting for my old clothes to fit again) and a button up top with a fun pattern (easy for breastfeeding and the print hides any spit up that I get on me! Ha!). 

Outfit 2- The green sweater is from Nordstrom but it was originally white. I dyed it green and added buttons. The skirt is made from an old men's shirt I thrifted. I also picked up the belt at a thrift store as well. The boots are from Target and the tights are Hue brand. 

What are your fashion secrets?

I get a lot of my outfit ideas while doing laundry! I keep my eyes open while all my clothes are jumbled up in a pile. Often I'll see two things together the look great that I never would have thought of while they were hanging in my closet. Plus, it makes doing laundry a little more fun!

When it comes to shopping, I either go to the thrift store or I shop sales. In fashion, everything has its season, so all apparel items eventually go on sale. If you find something you love but it's pricy, keep an eye on it. Eventually it will get marked down. And if you walk away from it, continue to think about it, and get scared that it will sell out, you will then know it's worth the price to you. So go back and treat yourself! 

Where do you get your style inspiration? Everywhere! My eyes are always open! When I'm out, I love looking at stranger's outfits. I also love the movie Penelope. I would raid her closet if I could! The internet is also a great resource! Blogs, Pintrest, magazine websites. There is so much inspiration out there!

Outfit 3- The skrit and belt are thrifted. The boots are from a friend's boutique that sadly no longer exists. The shirt if from Old Navy and the sweater is from Nordstrom.
