Samantha Wennerstrom lives in Santa Barbara with her husband, Todd, and her daughter, Elin. Starting out with a career in publishing, Samantha created Could I Have That? as a creative outlet to house all the things that she was coveting and loving. What started out as a hobby in 2009 has since organically grown into a business featured on the covers of The Wall Street Journal, C Magazine, Who What Wear, Lucky Magazine, The Zoe Report, Santa Barbara Magazine, and more. Could I Have That? is a destination for all who love upping the ante in their everyday lives. Below, Samantha is sharing her style insights.
I’m a romantic at heart. So it’s no wonder that I lean toward wardrobe pieces that move with a little breeze or have feminine touches here and there. A ruffle is the epitome of romance if you ask me. It also happens to be a detail that carries over season to season, depending on how you style it. This summer I’ve fallen for a few favorites (including this blouse) that I plan on wearing well into the upcoming season.
My top style secret is to keep it simple when pairing romantic pieces with accessories and other wardrobe staples. If you go big, stick to one color palette. I’ve also loved pairing high-waisted denim (this pair is The Dazzler by Mother Denim) with über-feminine blouses. I like to style it with this hat by Janessa Leone—another piece I plan on wearing through fall.

I love the romantic eyelet-sleeve detail.
High-waisted denim is instantly flattering.
I personally always mix and match my yellow-gold and rose-gold pieces.
This Janessa Leone woven hat is my summer staple.
A thick ring is easily complemented by thinner gold pieces.
I wear delicate jewelry, like this knot ring, all year round.
