Style Swap

Yesterday you saw Kaitlyn's twist on my outfit. The jumpsuit, cardigan, necklace, and ring were all mine, but I've never styled the four together. I love how it turned out (and now I'll probably rock that outfit when it all comes back my way) but that got me thinking...are these swaps we're doing morphing our styles more then we realize?

I headed to my latest swap bag and grabbed the first dress that caught my eye...

As I continued to style my look, I kept thinking "what would Kaitlyn do?" It's always fun to put our own twists on the items we swap, but why not full out use the other person as inspiration? Kaitlyn loves her a great pair of flats so I decided to keep the look good for everyday wear. I added three items of her jewelry and a denim jacket to finish the outfit off. When it came to hair and makeup, I decided to use a recent outfit post of Katie's for inspiration.

Braided faux hawk ponytail & a pink lip? I'm so game for that!

Have you ever used myself or Kaitlyn as inspiration in your everyday outfit styling?
