good LOOK for less: Lindsay, she's headed to 'Frisco!

Today I am featuring Lindsay's good LOOK for less consult! She's headed to San Francisco for a vaca (sounds super fun!) and wanted to spruce up her look before she heads out. Here's her note:

I am 24 years old and living in a suburb of Kansas City. My boyfriend and I are traveling to San Francisco in exactly one month to celebrate his 30th birthday!! We are doing LOTS and LOTS of sightseeing--which means lots of walking! You name it: Hot air balloon ride, Alcatraz, museums, Giants Ballgame etc! However, I HAVE NO IDEA what to wear?! I am typically a jeans and heels kind of girl and I love skinny jeans. I'm hoping that you can help me plan to look stylish yet comfy for the events we have planned. I prefer a classy, sophisticated style but yet relaxed and fun.

For her trip I wanted to outfit Lindsay in a wardrobe that was both laid-back and effortless but that was fun and trendy at the same time. A relaxed Cali feel with some city flair! Lindsay had a shopping budget of $300... for that I was able to compile 20 new wardrobe pieces and 8 total outfits (plenty for a week away!). Lindsay wanted to throw in a hip Kate Spade handbag and a pair of Citizens premium denim that she already owned. Besides those... this is what the shopping list looked like:

Let's take a look at a couple of the outfits... there are so many good ones, but here are a few of my favs.

This is a super casual look that is pumped up with some fun and bold accessories!

If you have a thing for premium denim (like Lindsay and I do)... you absolutely MUST check out Gap's new denim line. To die for! Here I paired the super fashion-forward distressed white skinny jeans with a fun and flirty top and whimsical jacket. I am SO loving this look!

A fun flirty dress is prime vacation wear... I love it because it can be versatile for multiple wears (let's be practical here!) and it will pack well. Pair it with some rockin' accessories and you are set for some tourist fun!

Happy shopping Lindsay and safe travels too! Send us a picture or two if you think of it!

Oh wow seriously beautiful. I really need to give Charolotte Russo another shot. I haven't been there in years, but you always find the greatest things!

This post couldn't be more timely! I'm also headed to San Francisco in a couple weeks and your suggestions for Lindsay are perfect. I just might have to adopt a couple of these ideas for my own wardrobe!
