Guest Post Series: Spring Style Files

After my guest post on vmac & cheese last week, I was inspired to ask my favorite blog girls to create some fab content for TCG.

I asked them for their favorite spring outfit. Could be something they recently purchased in preparation for warm weather, or a few things they're lusting after. I also asked these lovely ladies to explain why the outfit is so them.

While these three are all fabulously stylish, they each have a very different look. I could not wait to see what they came up with!

Here's the first post of the series. Cara is a very close friend of mine and a fellow Chicagoan. Check out her blog

When Ashley asked me to put together my favorite Spring outfit, the first thing I did was make a trip to my closet. Nothing. I found it impossible to get enthusiastic about anything I currently own. So straight to the internet for a little "window" shopping I went in search of something that was worthy of a guest post on Ashley's blog.

I love the unexpected and opted for a vibrant skirt from Anthrolopogie paired with a classic silk blouse. I truly feel that this combination could go anywhere without feeling over/under dressed. I added a pair of caged, blush colored heels to both elongate my legs and give me some height. After a month working extremely long hours and failing to take care of myself, I made a resolution to be more glamorous. This includes wearing heels far more often than not.

To top the outfit off, I included beautiful lavender drop earrings, a studded gold ring and a light leather bag {similar to one I carry day-to-day}. I love it. While I was originally searching for a fun floral dress, I find this outfit so Spring and versatile!

Thanks Ash for letting me a part of your series. Now let's just hope Spring comes sooner rather than later! xoxo
