The Blogging Besties series is the brain child of Alex @ Undergraduate Style 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, Maricel wore a fabulous handmade sweater:
The prompts she gave me were "something red, something striped, something contradictory, or a handmade item".
As challenging as "something contradictory" sounds, I actually thought of these shorts rights away (probably because I was wearing them when I got the email of her post). The shorts are contradictory in two ways. First, they are grey bouclé tweed, which is a fabric that screams COLD WEATHER, but they're shorts, a decidedly warm weather article of clothing. Secondly, the fabric and style of the shorts are on the dressy side, but they're actually so stretchy and comfortable that they feel like pajamas.
I leave Whitney the following prompts: pajama clothes (clothes that feel like pajamas, unless she wants to show us her actual pajamas), eyelet lace, floral jewelry, or new hair!
