Blog Collab: Styling Peplum

Today Emily from Life With Emily and I have teamed up to show you how we style our peplum tops. There's no denying that I'm obsessed with Emily's darling wardrobe (and statement necklaces!). Even though I was really looking forward to meeting this pretty gal at the SBS NC Blogger Meet-Up, things just couldn't work out. Hopefully, we'll be able to grab coffee or a blogger lunch date sometime soon.

Do you ever come across a situation where you're convinced that your outfit looks perfect with two totally different pairs of shoes? Well, due to the endless amounts of rain a few weeks ago, rain boots have always been my first pick. No question about it. While styling this outfit, the darling polka-dots and peplum (plus that red bow) made me feel girly and feminine and finishing it off with bow sandals deemed more appropriate.

So instead of having to make a decision, I decided to go with both. 
That's the thing I love about style. There is no rulebook you must abide by. You can dress however you please and still call it your own. 
So. Be honest, which shoe do you like paired better with this outfit? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Blog Collab: Summer Stripes

Today Rachel from Chicago Chic and I have teamed up to show you how we style our summer stripes. I've been following this gorgeous lady for the longest time now and we've kept up with each other ever since. Ugh, she has the best figure (so jealous) and the cutest wardrobe, which I'd love to raid if I ever visit Chicago! You can also find her on instagram.

I decided to keep it simple by pairing my striped dress with a denim jacket, a vintage Coach bag and my favorite straw boater hat which you've probably seen frequently. Quite the summer staple.
I am loving Rachel's striped bow bandeau top paired with those stunning ankle-strap heels.

P.S. We both love our red lipstick. Can't you tell?

Blog Collab: Styling Polka Dots for Weekend Night Out

Today Andrea from Month of Diamonds and I have teamed up to show you how we style polka-dots for a weekend night out. Ever since I've been following this fabulous gal on instagram, I've been obsessing over her style. I feel like our style has many similarities, such as a pink lip, heels and a fun skirt with color.
Head on over to her blog here to see more photos of her outfit!

I paired my navy polka-dotted top with pearls and a white bow for a more preppy look, while Andrea sported a more bold look by belting her polka-dots paired with a vibrant yellow skirt and topped off with a pair of killer heels. Love love love.

What do you guys think of our polka-dot pair-up? How do you style your dots?
