Blogging Besties: Teal

The Blogging Besties series is the brain child of Alex @ The Cheerful Closet and Whitney @ Whitney à la Mode. In 2015 the series expanded to include Maricel @ My Closet Catelogue and me, Selah @ A Bibliophile’s Style. It’s based on the idea of “take one, pass it on,” but we’re passing on an element from another blogger’s outfit. It’s a fun challenge that inspires us to be creative!

Last week, Whitney looked lovely in teal green:

The prompts she gave me were “the oldest piece in your closet, a denim jacket, teal or scallops”.

Since I purchased my own teal circle skirt after falling in love with Whitney’s, I decided to use it. I paired it with an Eiffel Tower graphic tee, tasseled loafers, and a sparkly bracelet.

Next week, Maricel can pass on tassels, green & blue, or something Parisian inspired.

Blogging Besties: Embroidered

Blogging Besties is a weekly series featuring Whitney of Whitney à la mode, Alex of The Cheerful Closet, Maricel of ::My Closet Catelogue:: and Selah of A Bibliophile’s Style.  Each week, one of the bloggers will choose one component from the previous week’s outfit to pass on in a brand new look.  This “take one, pass it on” challenge is an inspiration to stretch your closet and your imagination!

I’ve been so excited for this week’s Blogging Besties since I get to pass-on some of Alex’s inspiration for the first time!  She was so creative in her interpretation of the Disney prompt last week and totally nailed a fun work look!

From her outfit, Alex told me that I could pass along polka dots, a casual jacket, wedges or something embroidered.  This prompt couldn’t have been more perfectly timed because I have been eyeing all of the embroidery lately!

It’s not often that I totally buy into a trend but I’m loving all of the pretty, stitched floral patterns found on tops and dresses this spring!  I actually purchased a few embroidered pieces the very day that I wore this outfit.  That being said, I did not yet have these items when I took outfit photos.  So for today’s purposes, I actually pulled-out one of the oldest tops in my closet…and my only embroidered piece!

I also passed-on a casual jacket but I think embroidery is more fun as the topic of this post!


For next week, Selah can pass along the oldest piece in her closet, a denim jacket, teal or scallops!

Blogging Besties: Disney

Hello! After a brief hiatus last week, Blogging Besties is BACK and better than ever! And after nearly 2 years of the four of us doing this series together, we are switching up the order. I am kicking off the new order, followed by Whitney, then Selah, then Maricel. We are all excited for some fresh new inspiration!
 Last week, Selah looked adorable in a super-cool graphic tee + jeans + sneaker combo. I decided to “pass on” the Disney element of her oufit. I’m not gonna lie–it’s a *little* bit of a stretch, but hear me out. I am calling this a Snow White-inspired outfit. (Get it? With the blue top/yellow bottom?) And honestly, if the Disney Princesses had to wear business cas, you KNOW one of them would be wearing this fun yellow polka-dot skirt!
