Ashley was so kind to ask me to guest post! I think we all agree she and Gabrielle have one of the best fashion blogs around. =)
Natasha, another guest poster this month, I do not believe that being modest equals being frumpy. As girls, we can have so much fun with our clothes! There are booku ways to get creative with eclectic combinations and colors. =) From our hair to our toenails, we have so many options! =D My personal style has taken some twists and turns through the years. I'd probably describe it now as just oxymoronic- hearty/dainty/fresh/classic/hippie/modern/country/city/feminine/rustic. =P Maybe I'm just confused. ;)

An exercise I sometimes do on my blog is give a brief explanation of what I think makes an outfit "work". Today's outfit is pretty easy- The cornflower blue playful skirt gives some color to the simple gray shirt and boots. The boots' height and slim style help give the midi-length skirt a slimming quality. The scarf gave some extra warmth and a bit of extra color and texture. I love wearing chokers with V-necks to draw attention to the face, while the long drop earrings are flattering to my face shape. I don't wear my hair in a ponytail often, but because I had crimped my hair the night before, it gave enough texture and volume to it for a ponytail to be interesting and necessary. =D
Just because heels aren't always practical doesn't mean we
shouldn't indulge. ;) Suede high-heeled boots are a weakness of mine and
yes, I jumped around the hay barn rafters in mine for y'all. :D Scroll through
my fashion blog archives and you'll see I do a lot of balancing on
precarious perches for pictures. *grin*
Thanks for thinking of me, Ashley!
