Laura Adney knows what you have, what you need and most importantly, what you want when it comes to easy, everyday looks that are also fashion forward. How? Well, for one thing Adney is a mother with a busy life who also happens to be obsessed with fashion. She turned to her website and social media in 2013 as a creative outlet for her everyday life but ended up making it her full-time role in 2017! She's since been featured on numerous blogs and fashion websites.
That's why this Soquel California-based fashionista and influencer gave both her website and her instagram page the title "Have, Need, Want". Whether she's giving advice on different ways to wear your favorite matching set or putting together that perfect summer "mom uniform", Adney is fully fluent in modern, everyday fashion. In addition to her frequently posted clothing and accessory looks, Adney posts advice on motherhood and healthy living.
Adney's got a lot of great looks, but we went ahead and pulled a few of our favorites:
Matching Floral Set
Adney's a fan of matching pieces, and we can see why! She looks stunning in this three-piece matching floral set with high-waisted shorts, bandeau top and loose light jacket. She completes the look with a set of nude, open-toe pumps, a sleek updo and a nice pair of sunglasses. A light-colored handbag also is definitely a good choice here to keep the whole ensemble feeling light and summery.
Want to re-create this look for yourself but aren't sure about the matching pieces? Try a floral jumpsuit instead! This clothing item emanates the same carefree, flowy vibe as Adney's matching set. Don't forget to throw in your favorite sunglasses!
Loose Top with Statement Jewelry and Distressed Shorts
This a perfect example of the simple yet slightly edgy looks frequently seen on Adney's social media. Calling it her "Go-to Summer Mom Uniform", this is a fairly easy ensemble that consists of a loose, solid-color tank top, distressed shorts, sunglasses and statement earrings. It's the small details that really pop here thanks to the overall simplicity of the outfit.
When you re-create this look for yourself, make it your own by including the statement jewlery of your choice (earrings, necklace, bracelet, etc.) and wearing your favorite solid-color flowy top. A casual, oversized handbag or tote also pairs best with this look. We love Adney's ponytail here, but we also feel like a long braid could work.
Ruffled Top with Broad-rimmed Hat
We're in love with Adney's top here, and we can't help but think of fun in the sun when we see this outfit. Here she is seen in a white ruffled top with striped pants, sunglasses and a broad-rimmed hat to keep her summer chic and cool.
Adney reveals its actually a unique bikini top in her Instagram post, but you can re-create this look for everyday summer errands or events with a ruffled blouse. Pair it with loose pants (preferably palazzo pants) that have a fun pattern, and we definitely recommend a nice pair of sandals.
To complete the look, do as Adney does and add in a piece of statement jewelry! We love how she opted for a bracelet with this look, allowing the ruffled top to fully stand out as it should. As for hair, her loose waves look great swept to this side. For those who want a tighter look, try a side beach braid.
