Tucked away in a mini-mall on Coolidge Highway is a hidden fashion gem. Leyton’s of Oak Park is a fashion-forward boutique that offers trendy and affordable pieces. This fashion hot spot is a one-stop shopping experience – styling you from head-to-toe in apparel, shoes, handbags, jewelry, hats, belts, scarves, etc. For the woman on the go, this is certainly music to her ears. Another stellar aspect of this boutique is the wide variety of styles they offer – from classic to edgy and casual to formal – allowing you to effortlessly mix and match to your liking.
With summer fastidiously approaching, I’m on the hunt for the perfect summer essentials – shorts, maxi dress, romper, high-low dress, bold patterns, black and white. Luckily, Leyton’s fulfilled all my aforementioned style needs and then some! With that said, I’ve styled my favorite looks and trends suitable for every occasion: casual chic, weekend chic and date night chic.
Shorts are the ultimate summer style staple. They are perfect for a day at the beach or just strolling around the city. In choosing a pair, opt for floral and/or pastels to brighten up your wardrobe. The level of casualness is determined on what accessories you style it with – a clutch will dress it up a notch.
