We all see outfits in magazines that we’d love to recreate but just don’t feel like we can pull them off. Well, “Fret not, fellow fashionistas. It’s possible!” Check out this style inspiration from two foodie sisters, founders of The New Potato. Danielle and Laura Kosann’s blog combines their passion for good food and Lucky lets us know the sisters also have a penchant for fashion.

The two distinct looks can take you to a work or lunch date. They’re also great for a more casual day running errands (farmer’s market anyone?) or a visit to the park with the kids. Whatever the occasion, you’ll feel fabulous and be the envy of the all the other moms.

Look 1

Denim Jacket ($69.95/The Gap): Denim is always a staple and has made a big splash this year. Invest in a stylish denim jacket, if you haven’t already. The ensemble pictured here showcases its versatility.

Crop Top ($9.95/H&M) over Blouse ($16.00/Kohl’s): Let’s face it. Not everyone is ecstatic about the crop top trend. The great news is, you can still incorporate this look with some easy layering tricks. Layers can be your friend especially as we transition into fall. They can add texture and depth while keeping you warm! Try this white crop top over a longer shirt or blouse.

Floral A-Line Skirt ($69.99/ModCloth): Nothing says femininity more than a floral A-line skirt. This high-waist midi covers the midsection, cinches the waist, and falls right below your knees. It can be dressed up or down and work for many occasions.

Accessories- Shoes ($39.95/DSW) and Bracelet($28.80/Nordstrom): The different textures and layers in this outfit keep the shoes and accessories simple. Ballet flats provide style and comfort. Throw on a great chunky bracelet and you’re set!

Look 2

Structured Cardigan ($12.49-$32.70/Amazon): The blue cardigan helps gives this laid back vibe a more tailored look.

Vertical Striped Tee (32.99/The Limited): Vertical stripes create the illusion of length.  They are ideal for areas you want to appear slimmer or elongate.

Distressed Jeans ($74.95/The Gap): Distressed jeans can help balance out a more structured look.

Sunglasses ($24/Nordstrom): Accessorize with a cool pair of shades. These glasses by A.J. Morgan at Nordstrom provide some protection from the sun and retro glamour.

Statement Bag ($41/Les Pommettes): A great way to provide a pop of color is with a stylish tote.

Sandal ($34.95/DSW): A neutral sandal will work with many outfits and offer endless comfort.
