Currently in my closet & What I'm Wearing

Do you ever wonder what I decide to style for the blog? Most of the time I will shoot with my photographer, especially if it is for a brand campaign and I have lots of deliverables to get out. The blog and social media posts require lots of different shots, close ups and angles and I can’t do that by myself. Obviously. But when I order clothes and style outfits, I always do a mirror selfie to see if I like the combo. Let’s check out what is currently in my closet & what I’m wearing. And, the Sephora Beauty Insider Event is now open to the public!

Before we talk fashion, I have two exciting things to tell you. 1) Congratulations to CINDY C.! She won the $100 Gift Card to Nordstrom by entering the giveaway on this blog post and 2) The Sephora Beauty Insider Event is now open to ALL Beauty Insider members. Remember, becoming a Beauty Insider is FREE by clicking HERE. Go to this blog post to see my recommendations on what to get. I’ve also linked my recommendations at the bottom of today’s blog post. Oh and there is a GIVEAWAY on INSTAGRAM!  Now on to fashion…

Before the above shot could event happen, I had to decide on how the dress would be styled. Heels or flats? Accessories? What did I want the look to convey? I found this shirtdress at Zara (similar one here for less) while shopping at Northpark Center. I am a sucker for a good shirtdress and have many in my closet. It’s a great way to have an elevated, classic style without too much fuss. I wore this outfit last week to a brand collaboration retreat (more about that later) and we quickly shot the look outside at The Mansion on Turtle Creek. Today I am going to show you a bunch of mirror selfies which will give you some insight about my process.

Each picture will link the items I have on and/or what you could put with it. My handbags are downstairs near the back door because I grab my bag on the way out. That’s why you typically won’t see a handbag in a mirror selfie picture.  Heads up: All of these pictures are quickly taken with my iPhone. The lighting and clutter are #reallife problems. Let’s begin…

 

Currently in my closet & What I'm Wearing

I was heading out to join the brand collaboration group at The Mansion on Turtle Creek. Isn’t it funny that even though the trip was a staycation for me, the amount of stuff you have to pack is the same? I wore this casual outfit earlier in the day to the press screening of Avengers Endgame. The movie is GREAT and I highly recommend it! Have you seen it? No spoilers from me.

I purchased this dress to wear to the influencer dinner that was being hosted on our first night together. I wanted a ladylike dress that makes a statement. I sized up one size because I didn’t want it to pull in the chest (large boob problems). Mission accomplished!

These paperbag waist pants are so comfortable. I was actually shopping for a pair of paperbag waist jeans and didn’t find any that I liked. This was my outfit for the brand and factory tour. It was pouring down rain all day and we were instructed to wear closed toe flats for the factory tour. It was an 8 hour day and this outfit was perfect. Shoes are sold out but I have linked some similar choices.

OK, this is a great denim midi dress with a slit. I sized up one size because its snug. Great for date night or fun GNO.  Style Tip: I don’t like to show off my décolleté so I wear a skinny tee or white button down underneath the dress.  Voila – problem solved!

I love a good wide leg chino pant, don’t you? This brand does it so well! Fit is true to size.

These are my absolute favorite dark wash skinny jeans. The fit is so good and they are long enough for me. I am 5’8″ and all legs. The fit is true to size. I’ve had them for over 2 years and they do not lose their shape. I wash and dry all my denim so it’s not because I take good care of them. They are worth the investment! I wore this look to take P.J. to dinner and then we went to see Hamilton. What a fun night!

I am a huge lover of the brand Gal Meets Glam. Julia was one of the very first bloggers I followed and subscribed to. When she launched her dress line a year ago, I was so happy for her! I will say that I always have to size up in her line and that is true of this white cotton maxi shirtdress. I’m going to wear this all summer long. While holding a cold lemonade in my hand.

I have a theory about any blogger or celebrity that designs a line – they are designing for their own body type. I found this to be true with Draper James especially after I met Reese Witherspoon. Think about it…

Remember the blog post last week that described HOW to shop with me? All of these “selfie” looks are typically in the LikeToKnow.it app (tanyafosterblog) first so if you follow me there, you know that you can shop these looks anytime. I love a good bumble bee loafer, don’t you? These jeans were included in my Jeans under $100 blog post and I absolutely love this brand! They fit true to size.

Are you starting to see a pattern? Yes, another shirt dress. This brand always fits me true to size. I’m wearing a size 6.  The dress is effortless and I wear it with heels or flats.

This is ‘weekend Tanya’. Casual, running errands and just rinsed off my spray tan. I love a good Bermuda short and these do not disappoint. I originally got these for the trip to Aruba and you might have seen them in this blog post or this one. They are the perfect length for anyone who doesn’t like short shorts. Style Tip: I suggest wearing Bermuda shorts with flats (slides, flip flops, mules).

WHEW! That was a lot of looks! I hope you like this kind of post. Be sure to check my Instagram today as there will be a fashion post with a GIVEAWAY on it.  Good Luck!

xoxo – Tanya
