Ladies Club: Samantha Wennerstrom

You may know her better as the author behind the perfectly dressed blog, "Could I Have That."  We know her as the down to earth born and bred Californian that she is.  Either way, the lady has an impeccably, easy, and all the while feminine style that we love. Sam's an adventurous spirit and intrepid traveler, having traveled to seven different countries in the past two years and even a supporter of going solo and seeking out the unknown. That's the kind of live-life-to-the-fullest attitude we like to support. On this particular day we found her upping the ante in Sherman Oaks...a little drive from her usual Santa Barbara. We soaked up the sun (a rarity for us San Franciscans this time of the year) and watched as she brought the beach to the suburbs and added a touch of Southern California to the Taylor Stitch lady.

Head to Samantha's blog for a bevy of good lifestyle tips; how to dress up a sweatshirt, pack stylishly and intelligently, travel well and just plain old live better.

Featured here in our: Sea Washed Sloane TankScout Denim Pullover, Margo Dress, and our newest edition; the Linen Project Jacket. You can find the tank and jacket in stock now and the pullover and dress to be restocked this week- follow the links to be notified.
