No matter what part of the country you’re from, you’ve probably found yourself coveting a California girl’s beachy style. Take fashion blogger Dylana Suarez — five years ago, the SoCal native took a job as a stylist and moved herself, her blog Color Me Nana
, and her bohemian aesthetic to the East Coast. Ever since, Suarez's super-wearable looks have earned her a following as impressive as her wardrobe.
That flare for free-spirited fashion is what makes Dylana stand out among all the edgy, minimalist New York bloggers. The city allowed her to further indulge her love of thrifting, a hobby she picked up as a kid who was too tall for most of the clothes at the mall.
But, Suarez isn’t all about the old stuff; she’s also got an eye for of-the-moment finds that embody that relaxed, eternal-summer style only a Cali girl could nail so consistently. So, we turned to the master to curate eight every-occasion outfits for the season from T.J.Maxx
. Ahead, channel Suarez's breezy West Coast fashion sense without splurging on a plane ticket.
