Things are heating up on the Metro Detroit style scene this summer! Check out SEEN’s eight favorite street style looks from June.
By Chelsie Dzbanski
1. Sarah Allmon and Leah Brzyski
Identical twins Sarah Allmon and Leah Brzyski are used to sharing everything in life. With a shared passion for fashion, good food and wellness, the duo decided to start their blog twoscoopsofstyle.com to share their interests with the world. Standing at just over 5 feet tall, the two hope to empower women of all sizes to feel their best, particularly petite women who are regularly mistaken for middle schoolers due to their fashion choices. While the two may share many similar interests and even careers (they are both classically trained singers with careers in teaching and performing), the one thing they don’t share is ZIP codes. Leah is currently completing her master’s degree in vocal performance at Yale University in Connecticut, and Sarah works as a choir teacher in Michigan. Follow them on Instagram at @two_scoops_of_style to catch up on their bargain finds, petite fashion advice and travel adventures!
Leah and Sarah are pictured above wearing a waist-defined v-neck dress from Old Navy (left), rattan box corsbody bag from Target (left), Mother Denim jacket from Loft (right), floral print short-sleeve crepe dress from Target (right) and Matti heeled buckle ankle strap sandals from Target (right).
