Style Swap with Alex

I hope that you are beginning to recognize Alex from Undergraduate Style by now due to our various guest posts and style swaps!  If you haven't checked-out her blog yet, you must because she is just the best!


Alex and I had so much fun swapping styles before that we decided to do it again!  As soon as Alex asked if I was game, I immediately knew which of her outfits I wanted to "steal."  (Is it stealing if I give her credit?)



I know I've mentioned the versatility of detailed blouses before, but these wardrobe staples become even more important to me as the temperature rises.  When it gets hot, layering scarves and blazers to add interest just isn't an option.  For that reason, I love sleeveless blouses with cute details (like the real bow and the cute printed bows on this blouse).  You can throw one on with a pair of jeans or shorts and you are good to go!



In other news, have you seen this picture that is making its way around the interwebz?


Allergies have seriously been kicking my behind lately!  Pollen in the Washington D.C. area is out of control (I didn't have such serious issues in the lovely state of Michigan, that is for sure).  Anyway, I am currently enjoying my spring break by sitting on the couch with my cat and a roll of toilet paper that I'm using as Kleenex.  I know, I know, cue the song "Glamourous" by Fergie.

And don't forget to stop by Alex's blog to see which of my styles she recreated today!

What I'm Wearing:
Blouse: LOFT (similar, similar) <--Neither of these feature bows but I liked the ruffles and stripes!
Jeans: LOFT (exact)
Sandals: From France (similar, similar)

    1. Thanks, Rachel! "The Brandied Pair" and "My New Favorite Outfit" used to do an actual Style Swap Link-Up. I'm hoping they will do it again because it was so fun!

  5. Pink is a GORGEOUS color on you, and this shirt is perfection, which is no surprise. It's from LOFT; do they ever not knock it out of the park? The bows are so darling, and I so wish I had this top in my closet :)

  11. What a fun idea....a style swap! What's the point in sharing outfits with each other if we can't use them, right?!

    That's so funny..the death star comparison with pollen. It really is SO bad this year. I have to take out my contacts at 4 every day.

    1. Exactly! We might as well draw inspiration from one another! Good luck with those allergies...I'm finding I can't live without Claritin!
