All That Glitters Is Gold

Today’s guess stylist: Brittany

Brittany is quite possibly my most reluctant guest stylist. She really only does this because I ask her to. But I love her outfits so much I can’t help but ask. For this post, it was hard for me to keep a straight face because she was cracking jokes the entire time. She’s hilarious, and stylishly so.

My wonderful models: Anna S., Leah, Charli, Claire, Adella, Brittany, Anna B., Lauren, Amy, Michael, Thomas, and Greg. This shoot was full of fun and laughter, all because of you. I could not have wished for a more perfect group of friends with whom to work and spend time. Thank you for helping my vision come to life!

All photo credit goes to Derek Nelson. When I first mentioned that I wanted to do this photo shoot, he volunteered to be our photographer without hesitation. He is incredibly talented and a joy to be around, and it was a gift to have him taking these photos. Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into making this shoot even better than I could have asked!

Why it works:

Since this skirt is way too short to wear on it’s own, I knew I needed to pair it with either tights or leggings. I went with the classier, more mature option: tights. Pairing them with these basic black pumps (the LBD of shoes) made my legs look longer.

I tucked the shirt in because I like to show off my small waist. I picked this cardigan to play with the lines of the look. I have a line where my shirt tucks into my skirt, a line where the cardigan ends, and a line at the bottom of the skirt. I didn’t want anything too long, which would have made it more casual than I wanted. I didn’t want too short, either, which would have left a little sliver of my tucked in shirt visible in the back (I don’t know if it’s wrong, I just don’t like it).

Why it works:

A lot of people would say you shouldn’t wear shorts with heels, but if you are, make them wedges. Well, I like shorts with all kinds of heels. Because of the function I was going to, I needed to be a little more covered up, so I paired them with dark grey tights and black pumps. In addition, the tights blended with the heels and made my legs look longer. I maintained a level of modesty and showed off my long legs at the same time.

And since I was wearing business-esque pumps, I just decided to go with it. I threw on a blazer, not a cardigan, both to flow with the style of the outfit and to give shape to the loose chiffon top I had on.

Today’s guest stylist: Brittany

I’m pretty sure Brittany has guest styled on my blog more than anyone else who has ever been on here. She’s gorgeous, fashionable, and has plenty of personality. Not only does she have great style, but she’s one of the most fun and genuinely sweet people I know.
