Seattle is known for many things: the tech industry, the Space Needle and plenty of rain, to name a few. But get ready for unique modern fashion to make that list even longer, thanks to local Emerald City blogger Amanda!
Amanda's website, Fashion to Follow, is a great resource for travel, healthy living and all aspects of fashion, but it's her colorful outfits that really caught our eye. A rising style guru, she's taking modern urban fashion trends and adding some fun, classic twists! From airy, Mid 20th Century inspired dresses to power blazers and flared jeans, Amanda's look has been shaped by a variety of influences with timeless appeal.
Always dressed to impress, Amanda's outfits look like they could fit into a variety of decades while still being fashion forward by modern standards.

Light Midi Dress with Matching Pumps and Dark Shoulder Bag
Okay, it's hard not to fall in love with this look at first sight.
The short bell sleeves on this light pink midi dress are what first draw the eye, but they're far from the only awesome feature here. We're in love with the button-down front, and the soft flare on the lower portion of the dress both complements the sleeves and gives the outfit overall an almost princess-like quality. Amanda completes the outfit with pointed light pink heels that match the dress color and a dark shoulder bag for nice contradiction.
Long Sleeveless Blouse with Skinny Jeans and Pointed Pumps
This is a great everyday outfit for summer! The innovation here is more subtle compared to a lot of Amanda's looks, but look closely at the items involved. We're loving the long white sleeveless blouse, especially with its lower side slits for both style and movement. The long skinny jeans are always a great go-to for casual looks, and the pointed toe pumps are a nice touch that add more dimension and shape.
Amanda completes this look with a rounded brown leather crossbody bag and a nice pair of sunglasses, that both serve to add more shape variety. Nevertheless, you can make this look your own by changing up the accessories. Try a clutch bag and play around with jewelry options.
Flowing Blue Kimono Dress
The dress itself is basically the entire outfit, but it sure is stunning. It's a flowing blue dress with kimono sleeves, and we see it working well in just about any daytime setting. Amanda wears her hair down and flowing with it, but we see an updo working just as well here.
