Serena Style


{H&M sequin cardigan, Forever 21 lace tank and skirt and  bow clutch, thrift booties}
Well, the weekend is over and it is time to get busy! I have four days to work and then I am off to wine country. Sunday has been a day of groceries, errands, and catching up on my DVR. I watched some episodes of Gossip Girl and decided once again that it is time to spice up my wardrobe. Out of all the characters I relate most to Serena's style.  This outfit was not taken to look like anything, but it does give me a bit of  the Serena vibe. I adore my H&M sequin cardigan.
So, keep your eyes out for some new style from me. I also have decided to try to add a few more classic pieces to my wardrob. 

If you are like me and love Serena's long beachy waves here is a tutorial to get her look:

1. Spritz Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray on freshly washed hair.
2. Blow dry hair on the lowest setting using a diffuser attachment.
3. Use a two inch curling iron to create wave. Wrap hair around the curling iron and remove almost immediately to get this wave instead of a big curl.
4. Curl hair away from the face on both sides on the front of the face.

love GG. Love Serena. You are totally channeling her look here! She would absolutely rock that sequined vest! I am loving so many of the H&M fall looks and there isn't even one in the state of AZ! planning a shopping trip when I come back to the bay next month! Enjoy wine country! My parents live up in Sonoma and thats where we got married last summer. Can't believe how much I took for granted that it was right there. There is nothing in AZ! Enjoy wine country for me. If your in Sonoma head to Chateau St. Jean.... my fav!!

Love the sequin cardi from H&M on you. I had my eye on it and then my friend got it for herself, but I told her I'll just have to borrow it a few times. hehe :)
Have a great week Taylor!

I die at your shoes! The little cut-outs are absolutely magnificent - and I adore the color. Though I'm in dire need of that sequin cardigan - it's so Cavalli! :)
