Winter Florals Pt 2

Feb 1, 2014

Over coffee with girlfriends the other weekend, we started to discuss the topic of fashion blogs and how they are both a source of inspiration and frustration. We all look to our favorite style bloggers when we’re stuck in a wardrobe rut and/or have money to burn (albeit, limited money for the average city girl). On the other hand though, fashion blogs tend to set an unrealistic expectation for those with normal lives and normal paychecks. We rarely see any of our bloggy friends wearing the same items twice. Bearing this conversation in mind, I’ve been thinking- I really should stop worrying so much about re-wearing items in my outfit shoots and actually do it purposefully. Seeing how to wear one item multiple ways is much more useful, isn’t it? 

So, away we go. Remember that fun floral dress I styled here? Well, here is a whole new take on it. This version is perfect for brunch with the girls or casual date night. Even better, wear it without the sweater to a client meeting and then throw a few extra layers on to meet a friend for pizza. 

Thoughts on this new series idea?
