Friday's Fancies: Blog Swap!



I'm very excited about Long Distance Loving's Friday's Fancies,  Blog Swap style! Today I will be swapping blogs with Ashley from the blog Styleash. I had a lot of fun doing this swap and I'm so glad I got partnered with Ashley! :)

 
Hi! I'm Ashley from the blog styleash & I'm so excited to be doing one of my first guest posts on Erin's lovely blog! I live in Chicago and work for a retailer doing Merchandising. Fashion and shopping have always been a huge source of joy in my life so I decided to turn it into a blog earlier in November. Erin and I decided to showcase two outfits for Friday's Fancies this week: a winter look (since it's freezing still) and a spring look (since there are way too many cute things out right now). I hope you enjoy what I put together: 
Winter & Spring
Winter Look: jeans // sweater // bag // booties // earrings
Spring Look : dress // denim jacket // wedges // tote // necklace

For my winter look I went with a pair of colored skinny jeans and a chunky knit sweater. I'm currently on the hunt for the perfect pair & am still trying decide if I want a dark pair or a light color for spring. I paired them with chunky Michael Kors boots (that are on sale!) and added some texture with a suede handbag. I keep my jewelry fairly minimal so a pair of hammered gold earrings does the trick for my winter wardrobe. As for my spring look, I fell in love with that bright red dress and think it would be great to pair with a denim jacket for spring. I really like the mix of feminine & masculine and I think that does the trick. Add in a beautiful burlap wedge and a patterned tote and you're all set for a day of shopping or a happy hour with friends. 

Thanks so much for having me, Erin! And I hope you all will stop by my blog & say "Hi" some time!
