Laura Lehman Wears








I feel like I'm in this weird limbo space where I'm wanting so badly to create new posts and have so many new ideas for my blog, but I literally have no time to produce anything.  I promise this little once-a-monther theme isn't going to continue, but bear with me for the next few weeks.  I'm not apologizing, because just happens sometimes and papers and assignments are going to trump this's just what it is.  But I miss it, I miss y'all.  I miss the collaborating and creativity.  But, I think timing is everything and right now just isn't my time to be blogging like crazy.

A little life update, though:

School:  I have one and one half of a semester left.  I am walking in the big graduation ceremony this May (what?) and then will be officially done in August.  The individual days went by so very slowly, but the, where did the time go?  Also, what the heck am I going to do with all my free time when it's over? That's another blog post for another day.

Location:  I am happy in D.C.  I've met a lot of wonderful people and I'm just obsessed with the vibe here.  Cheeseball alert:  Almost once a day, I think to myself how happy I am.  However, I am not so much obsessed with the politics..that's not my thing, but the culture, restaurants, shopping,'s my scene.  I've decided to renew my lease for another year, but anything could happen.  On this point, if you're in D.C. (or if you're traveling here this spring), make sure to check out the Yayoi Kusama:  Infinity Mirrors exhibit at the Hirshhorn Museum.

Job:  I have never felt so happy in a job.  Is it because it's so stress-free?  Maybe.  Is it because my boss is amazing?  Maybe.  Is it because I know (and they know) it's not a forever job?  Maybe.  Who knows..but for right now, I'm content and content is just what I need until I complete school.  What do I do next?  That's probably the biggest weight on my shoulders right now.  

Relationships:  Like this blog, I don't have time.  However, I think I need to start focusing on it like I focus on school.  I'm content with being single, though..I always have been, so maybe something's wrong with me?  Kidding, but really.  Maybe it'll take just being with the right person, but with my current schedule, if it's going to happen in the near future, he's got to be the one to find me and not the other way around (aka I deleted all the dating apps because they were wasting my time :).

Blog:  Like I said above, I'm going to keep up with it as much as I can, but I also am not putting any pressure on myself.  I'm going to try and stay as current as possible on Instagram, hopefully that'll keep my creative juices flowing.  But also, fun project!  Brentwood (suburb of Nashville and my home town) Home Page website has asked me to contribute to their style section.  #flattered  I'll be writing a column about twice a month for them and I'm really excited..something totally new, so I'm pumped.  I'll send out the link once the first article is published.

Events:  So, I typically gauge my amount of events by how many dresses I have rented on RTR.  No joke.  Right now I have about five, so that tells you something.  In January, I attended the TN Inaugural Ball here in D.C., I'm headed to the Pink Tie Party tonight, and I'll be attending Taste of the South in that's three.  I'm also super pumped for TOTS because (shameless plug) I'm getting my makeup and hair done by Glamsquad and they are amazing.  They come out to your house (or wherever you are) and do your hair/makeup right there.  You don't have to leave!  They're in a few cities now, so if you are in one where they are, you've got to try them.  Use the code:  LAURALEHMAN for $25 off your first service.  The other two dresses on rent are for a friend's wedding and my 30th!  30th?!  I know; yikes. 

Trips:  I've got a lot coming up, but I've actually traveled a little bit already this year.  I was able to go to NYC and Nashville in February.  Whenever I'm in NYC, I always want to move there.  Sooo now that idea is floating around in my head.  I also just got back from a trip to Memphis and Nashville (again) and I'll soon be going to Atlanta and Charleston (for said 30th).  Also, trying to figure out how to make a Barcelona/Madrid trip happen..but ya  I'll also be going to Skaneateles Lake in upstate New York in the fall for a wedding, so yea..lots happening in this department.

Enough about me?  How is everyone doing?  Any new jobs?  Boyfriends?  Cities?  I'd love to hear from y'all!


jumpsuit:  Zara // shoes:  Sam Edelman // bag:  Saint Laurent // sunglasses:  Celine // watch:  Michele

Did I trick y'all?  This isn't a's a jumpsuit (shorts built in) and it's so comfy!  It's also colorful..well, black with a pop of color.  I'm loving the mustard yellow trend that's in right now, so why not put it on my feet?    Oh and if you are following along on Snapchat (@lehmala) or Instagram Stories (@laura.lehman), you'll know how challenging it was for me to pick out a new pair of sunglasses, but I went with the ones I am wearing (the aviators) and couldn't be happier.  I think these will last me a lifetime.

I'm headed to Memphis this weekend for a fun 30th bday celebration of a bestie.  I haven't been to Memphis in years, so I'm excited to go back.  We're going to Catherine & Mary's for dinner the first night and then she's hosting a large party the next night, so I'm pretty pumped.  Might be wearing this dress - gotcha, again - jumper to one of the events.

Any fun plans for the weekend?


sweater:  SheIn \\ jeans:  Levi's \\ shoes:  Kate Spade \\ sunglasses: Celine \\ bag:  Gucci \\ earrings:  Zaful

The title of this post should have included "mom jeans" in there somewhere.  I finally broke down and purchased a pair.  Levi's usually has amazing discounts and I got these for 40% on their site.  I believe if you sign up for their newsletter, you can also get a discount?

I also purchased this sweater from the cheapest of the cheap:  SheIn.  It looked horrendous as a regular sweater, but I just pulled it off the shoulder and boom..the $10 was worth it.  Really, it is $10.

If you follow me on Instagram, I posted this morning how ready I am for the weekend.  Anyone else?  I have SO much schoolwork to get done, laundry, grocery shopping, organizing (endless), and I'm headed to another Barre3 class.  Maybe it was my instructor, but I really enjoyed my first class so I'm giving it another try.  Oh!  And I'm headed to a Mardi Gras party..that should be fun!

What fun plans do y'all have?


coat:  Zaful \\ sweater:  H&M (on sale; less than $25!) \\ jeans:  J. Brand \\ scarf:  Club Monaco \\ boots:  Zara (similar) \\ bag:  Mansur Gavriel (here, here & here) dad had to remind me that I needed to post..I am so sorry.  It's been a while, but I have a feeling most people have felt that the beginning of this year has completely flown by.  With the New Year celebrations, MLK, Jr. holiday, the Inauguration, everything following the's been a wild couple weeks.  Oh and I started a new semester and I'm in class M/T/R nights, so that's been fun..

Back to the grind, though..well, grind sounds know what I mean.

I'm obsessed with this coat and not just because it was less than $ actually fits really well and the color is spot on.  I'm weird about my olives and this one is just right.  You may also have noticed the little bit of color I'm's happening. #iloveblush  I saved for a while for this bag and when I found it on sale, I went for it.  I literally stalked the internets for it at a lesser price point and found it on some random Italian boutique that shipped to the U.S.  I have a problem.

2016 ROUNDUP it is..a roundup of all my outfit posts in 2016.  Drum roll, please..
