My Go-To Fall + Winter Shoes

Hey everyone! I hope you are having a beautiful day wherever you may be! I am very excited that fall has arrived because I find everything about this time of year so beautiful; the vibrant colors, the cool and crisp weather, and of course, the fashion! Today, I wanted to share some of my go-to fall and winter shoes! These are just a few pairs that I wear most frequently at this time of year!

  • Ankle Boots

I think that ankle boots are my absolute favorite shoes to wear, mostly during the fall! There are a variety of patterns and designs to choose from, and they can dress up any look! I own quite a few pairs, and while they all look pretty different, the one thing they all have in common is that they are heels. I am not a big fan of stiletto type heels, and I often prefer to wear chunky and short heels. I find that they are not only easier to walk in, but they are more comfortable as well. They are just as stylish, and they can be worn for many occasions!

  • Snakeskin patterned boots

Snakeskin has been trending for a little while now, and I finally got my hands on a pair of snakeskin ankle booties! These are so on trend right now, and I purchased mine from Just Fab! They were very affordable, and they are my newest obsession! I plan to wear them all season long! While they are a bit bold, and not typically something I would have reached for, I have completely fallen in love with them! If you haven’t tried out the snakeskin trend, I recommend it! Who knows, maybe you’ll surprise yourself like I did!

  • Knee-high boots

I would say that I wear these more in the winter, however I love that they can pretty much be worn with anything! I style knee-high boots with jeans, skirts, dresses, and shorts! Where I live, it does not get very cold in the fall, and in the winter we will sometimes have pretty warm days! One Christmas Eve, I was wearing shorts and a tank top with the AC on! Knee-high boots look great with almost every fall/winter outfit, and I prefer to wear simple black suede ones. As I mentioned, I like a little bit of a lift, so these have a chunky heel as well.

  • Combat boots

I love the edgy look of combat boots in the fall and winter! I own a pair of brown ones at the moment, however I am hoping to find a nice pair of black ones with silver detailing (feel free to leave recommendations below)! They can definitely look stylish and cute with dresses, shorts, or skirts, however, I enjoy wearing them with jeans the most! These shoes can spice up any look, and even make the most feminine outfit look edgy.

  • Pointed-toe boots

I love a professional look from time to time, and pointed-toe shoes are a simple way to make any outfit a bit more classy. I own a pair of black suede pointed-toe ankle booties, and I find myself reaching for them often. These shoes are very versatile as well! I know that some people are not a fan of this style, however, I like them because they are very fashionable and they can be worn for most occasions these days. They really are shoes that can go from day to night; from the office to dinner with the girls.

  • Flat boots (riding boots)

I was not exactly sure how to describe these shoes, however I wanted to include them because they are perfect for those of you who aren’t a fan of heels and prefer a simple yet cute fall/winter shoe! I have a pair of black flat riding boots that are perfect for this time of year. I do not wear them very often anymore, but they are a great option for those casual fall or winter days. If you do not enjoy wearing heels, these shoes are great, and they can be worn for special occasions or casual days running errands or going shopping.

  • Rain boots

Where I live, fall and winter are not incredibly rainy seasons, however I wanted to include these because I bought a pair of adorable chelsea rain boots earlier this year, and I think they are just adorable! I wore these when I went to France in March. It was a pretty rainy week while I was there, so these shoes were perfect because they kept me dry, and they are very stylish as well. I never thought rain boots could be stylish, but I have found that chelsea rain boots can be worn in rain or shine and with most outfits!

It rarely snows where I live, but if you live in a very snowy area, then of course, I recommend owning a nice pair of snow boots that will keep you warm and dry! There are definitely days when I prefer to simply wear sneakers over any of these shoes, however I would say these are my top favorite styles and pairs!

I hope that you enjoyed today’s blog post! Let me know what your go-to fall/winter shoes are! Until next time! (Check out my Instagram: @sacchere14) for a fun little video I made wearing some of the shoes!)

Summer to Fall Transition Outfits + Tips

Hey everyone! If you have been following and keeping up with my blog from the beginning, you may remember that I created a similar blog post around this time last year! I absolutely love the fall season, and I am excited to start breaking out my sweaters and booties!

For today’s blog post, I wanted to share a few outfits that can be taken from summer to fall. It’s not always easy to transition your wardrobe from season to season, but especially around this time of year (though it may depend on where you live). Where I live, summer can linger for a little bit longer than most people would like, however, around mid-September, (aka, right now), things finally begin to cool down!

I will be sharing three different looks that I took from summer to fall. The smallest details made these outfits much more suitable for fall, and I loved putting these looks together!

Outfit #1

For this first look, I took a patterned halterneck tank, a pair of denim shorts, and a pair of heeled colorblock sandals. I also decided to add some rose gold sunglasses to complete the look. I made a few small changes to this look, however I wanted to keep the top because it is actually a perfect transition piece for this time of year. It isn’t exactly hot outside, but it’s not too cold either, so I still like to wear sleeveless tops around this time of year. The colors in this top are dark and include both purple and blue, making it more fitting for fall! I then took my favorite pair of straight leg jeans, and tucked in the front of the top. I threw on a warm black cardigan (just in case it’s a cooler day outside). Layering is a great tip for this season, and it adds a cute and casual touch to any outfit. Lastly, I put on a pair of booties! These are simple taupe ankle boots that I adore and love to wear in the cooler months! This outfit can be worn for most occasions, but overall it is the perfect everyday fall look.

Outfit #2

I think this may be my favorite outfit of the three! To start, I took a simple forest green/emerald tank tucked into a pair of black paper bag shorts that tie at the waist. I had a pair of white sandals, and my favorite summer panama hat. I decided to keep the main pieces of this look the same, and change up and add accessories. I love the color combo of emerald and black, and once again, the color of this top is perfect for this time of year! I added a very light black wrap coat that I wear very often (it gives any look a bit more of a classy and professional vibe), and I am wearing my new snakeskin booties. Snakeskin has been trending for a little while now, and I had been wanting a pair of snakeskin boots so badly! I finally found a very affordable pair from Just Fab! I have become a big fan of hats this year, which is strange because I was never a hat person! I am obsessed with this black fedora that I purchased earlier this year! Whether it’s a fedora, a beret, or a cabby hat, it will complete your fall look beautifully.

Outfit #3

For the last outfit, I changed it up quite a bit! I started off with a simple black tie-front tank with a pair of navy patterned shorts. I love wearing white in the summer, so I wore my white Stan Smiths. I also added a cream colored cardigan. To transition this look, I swapped my shorts for a pair of black high waisted jeans, and I took off my cardigan for a beautiful light trench coat. I bought this coat when I was in France earlier this year, and it has become one of my favorite pieces of clothing that I own! It is perfect for fall, and it adds a bit of French flair to the look! Of course, no fall look is complete without boots (at least for me)! I went with black pointed toe booties. Any shoes with pointed toes can make an outfit instantly classy, and I love how comfortable these are! Lastly, to go along with the whole French vibe, I threw on a black beret, also purchased in France (call me a typical tourist)!

Some fall trends for 2020:

  • Preppy clothing
  • Metallics
  • Patchwork
  • Capes
  • Plaids
  • Snakeskin
  • Subtle fringe detailing
  • Lingerie inspired clothing
  • Embellishments
  • Drawstring details
  • Colored leather
  • Cutouts
  • Trending colors: rust, marigold, chartreuse, jewel tones

Thank you so much for reading today’s blog post! Leave me a comment and tell me which look is your favorite! Don’t forget to check out my Instagram, @sacchere14, to see a fun little transition video I made wearing these outfits!

Fabletics Review

Hey everyone! It’s no secret that I enjoy working out, and I love fashion. I love looking put together, even in the gym! Something about new workout gear can bring a lot of motivation, and today, I will be talking about and reviewing the brand Fabletics.

Since starting my fitness journey, I have discovered a few fitness brands that I love. Fabletics is definitely one of them, and today I will explain why. This brand was created in 2013, but I became a member in 2018. Keep in mind that I will simply share my opinion of the brand. The items that I own by this brand are not very new, but I will include a link to the Fabletics website so you can check out the site and the workout gear for yourself!

When you first sign up to become a VIP member, you will take a short quiz that asks questions such as “What’s your favorite way to get fit?” “What colors best match your style?” and “Which best mirrors your body type?” You will also be asked to put in your size preferences. By answering all of these questions, you will get more of a personalized selection!

When I subscribed to Fabletics, there was a 2 for $24 deal on leggings. This is what made me want to try the brand because fitness gear can be pretty expensive sometimes. Plus, I had heard great things about the brand. Subscribing is free, however, you can choose whether or not you want to skip the month or shop and pay $49.95 a month. (Remember, you only have until the 5th of every month to skip.) If you decide you want to shop, the charge becomes a VIP Member Credit you can redeem on purchases of $49.95 or more. You can also cancel your membership at any time.

I absolutely love the personalized and stylish gear that this brand offers, and every month, there are new items to check out! While I love all of the fun patterns and bright colors, I typically like to go for a more subtle look with my workout gear. I do own a few colorful and patterned pieces, but when it comes to my leggings, I like them to be a neutral color and I prefer a high-waisted style as well. I love that Fabletics focuses on the smaller details just as much as the larger ones. Little things like pockets and mesh detailing can make even the simplest leggings so much cuter. I have compared the prices to other fitness brands, and I would say that they fall into the average price range. Some of the items can be a bit pricey for me, but as someone who loves to shop, I have found ways to purchase clothing in more affordable ways. I always look for coupons, deals, and I shop sale items as well.

When it comes to sizing, I have struggled to find what works for me. In most leggings, I would say that I am a size small. With Fabletics, I do not believe this is the case. The three pairs of Fabletics leggings I own are all a size small, and they are just a bit too tight around my thighs. The problem is, they fit perfectly around my waist. I truly do love my legs, and they have gotten a bit bigger and stronger since I began weight training. This means that certain pairs of bottoms, whether they are jeans or leggings, can feel a bit tighter around my thighs. Their leggings do not have much give, so I am going to purchase a pair in a medium to see if this is a better fit for me. Of course, this is better than leggings that are too stretchy, because these often wouldn’t last. I’ve had the same problem with the sports bras. I ordered mediums, when I think smalls would have been just fine. I feel that the quality of Fabletics gear is pretty great, and the leggings seem to be long-lasting. Knowing your body size and taking measurements may be helpful to finding your perfect fit.

The leggings are adorable and trendy, and the ones that I own are squat proof (meaning that they are not see-through when squatting.) I have realized that my favorite pairs are seamless. I think that they are more flattering and comfortable. I am also a fan of full length or 7/8 leggings, and I would often choose these over capris or shorts.

I have styled all of my Fabletics items for you today. These are a few of my favorite looks to workout in. Again, these items are not new, but I wanted to show them anyway.

This first outfit is probably the most comfortable. I love the black seamless leggings and the simple details on the sports bra. The bright orange top is perfect for the warmer months, and I reach for tank tops the most when changing for a workout.

This next outfit is a bit more fun! I just love the floral pattern and the cutouts on this sports bra! Once again, I have a loose fitting tank that I will sometimes tie in a knot to make it more stylish. It has a very subtle pattern on it as well. These leggings are navy blue, and they are cropped. These are a bit too tight on me, but I still like to wear them on upper body days!

These are my most recent Fabletics pieces. I received this as a set for Christmas last year. I love matching sets, and these colors go together beautifully! The sports bra is bright pink with a high neckline and almost a fishnet/mesh detailing. It could even be worn as a crop top. I normally do not like long sleeved tops when I work out, but this one would be perfect for hikes in the colder months. I love the cutout detailing all over this top as well! The leggings are burgundy, and the cutouts match the top perfectly. Once again, these leggings are a bit too tight on me, but I still wear them from time to time.

Overall, I would recommenced trying out Fabletics. Their pieces are trendy and fun, yet subtly stylish at the same time. There really is something for everyone! They not only sell clothing, but shoes and accessories as well. Whether you are into weight training, yoga, or running, I feel that Fabletics is worth a try!

Styling One Bodysuit Four Different Ways

Hey everyone! I am very excited for today’s blog post! Today I am going to be sharing four different looks that I have created using one bodysuit. I know that some people are not the biggest fans of bodysuits, but I feel that every girl should own at least one!

For each outfit, I decided to wear a simple black bodysuit. Since this piece is one solid color, it makes it a bit easier to style, however, I may change things up in the future! A bright red or patterned bodysuit would be trickier to style, but I’m up for the challenge! 😉 The outfits that I am sharing with you today are very different, yet they are all very much my style. They are perfect for the end of summer as well!

Outfit #1

Without a doubt, this look is my favorite of the four! Something about wearing all black can just make you feel powerful and confident! With the simple black bodysuit, I wore a pair of paperbag shorts with a tie to cinch in my waist. I threw on a wrap coat that I wear very frequently as well. It is made of a very light material, so it can still be worn on warmer days. For accessories, I went with my go-to black block heels, and a pair of cat eye sunglasses to complete the look.

Outfit #2

For this look, I wanted to go for something with a bit of a boho edge. This look is perfect for those cool summer days!  To go with the bodysuit, I wore some patterned palazzo pants. These pants are incredibly comfortable and stylish, and I love that they are made of a lighter material. Though the look is stylish, it also feels as if you are walking around in pajamas! As for accessories, I wore my black wide brim fedora, a pair of gold flip flops, and my round 70’s inspired sunglasses!

Outfit #3

This is a look that I would definitely rock during the summertime! I am a big fan of skirts and dresses, so I had to include this outfit! I absolutely love this pleated royal blue mini skirt. It adds a pop of color that I adore as well! The skirt adds such a feminine touch, and this is a look that I like to go for often. For the accessories, I wore the same black heels from the first outfit, and a classic black and white purse.

Outfit #4

This last look is definitely the most casual of them all. It even gives off a bit of a sporty vibe, which I do like to go for sometimes! I paired the bodysuit with my favorite high waisted denim shorts. These are a staple in my wardrobe, and I reach for them all the time! I also added a cream colored cardigan to make the look a bit more fun. Lastly, I decided to wear my Stan Smith sneakers because they would match any outfit, and I love wearing anything white in the summer!

Leave me a comment below and tell me which look is your favorite! Thank you so much for reading!

OOTD: 21st Birthday

Hey everyone! Yesterday was my 21st birthday, and of course, I had to buy an outfit for the occasion! Today, I am sharing an ootd (outfit of the day) with you all.

I have spoken about the brand “Priceless” on my blog recently, and a while back, I bought what I felt was the perfect dress to celebrate my 21st. This is the “Clem Blush Mini Dress” in a size medium. I purchased this dress for $58.92. It was a bit pricey for me, but I decided to buy it since it was for my birthday! Everyone who knows me knows that pink is my favorite color, so I truly couldn’t resist. I absolutely adore the flirty look of this dress. The 3D flower detailing and flowy skirt add such a fun touch. The material is 100% polyester, making it a bit warm for the summer time, however it is not unbearable! I felt pretty comfortable during the day!

As for my shoes, I recently bought these beautiful nude block heels. I had been wanting these shoes for about 2 years now, but I never ended up purchasing them until recently! These are the “Michaela Mid Block Heel Sandal Pumps” in the color “Taupe.” I bought these shoes at Target for $25 in a size 9. I love these shoes because they are so classic and can be worn with (literally) any outfit. The shorter heel makes the shoes more comfortable to walk in as well.

For jewelry, I wanted to keep it simple. I felt that silver matched this look better than gold would have. I wore a silver double layer necklace, and diamond earrings. Although I liked silver with this look, I wear my 2 gold rings every single day, so they completed the look.

I had a beautiful 21st birthday surrounded by friends and family. Every year, we make a reservation for one of my favorite restaurants. The food was, as always, delicious! Afterward, we had cake and I opened a few gifts from loved ones.

I find so much beauty in growth of all forms. I look back at who I was even just a few years ago, and I find that I am completely different. I am ever-changing. I am continuously finding new ways to grow and love myself. I am not as fearful of the future as I used to be. I know that I will face challenges, but I also know that some of the best experiences of my life haven’t happened yet. This thought excites me, and it makes me look forward to the future. Of course, I don’t want to rush my life, but instead, take every day and make the absolute most of it. To show kindness to every single soul that I come in contact with. To inspire others to be their best selves. To be as happy as I can be. To enjoy life’s simple pleasures. And to show love. So much love to the world around me. While I may be turning 21, my heart is as it has always been, and I refuse to let anything change that. I am very proud of the woman I am today. Here’s to 21 years of life!

Summer Fashion Essentials

Hey everyone! I took a little time off from blogging but I am back with more fresh content! I am currently on my way home from a little beach trip (hence, the break from blogging), so I decided to use this time to relax, but also write! For me, writing is so much more than a hobby; I feel that it is my purpose in life, and I have been heavily inspired lately. This inspiration does not only apply to my writing. It is so much deeper than I can explain.

For today, I wanted to chat about some of my favorite summer trends and essentials! Some of these are very much in style for the summer of 2020, and others are just items that I enjoy wearing at this time of year!

Puffed Sleeves

I have to say, I have always loved the look of puffed sleeves. I feel that they give off a very feminine and even vintage vibe. I own a few tops with puffed sleeves, and they have been some of my favorites as of late. This is a popular trend this season, and I recommend trying it out!

Denim shorts

This is a trend that I don’t think will ever disappear. Denim shorts are an essential in my wardrobe, and I believe that most women can say the same! Of course, different styles of denim have taken over, but I love the look of some classic, high waisted denim shorts. I also reach for white denim shorts frequently. I know that denim tends to be pretty expensive, but if you’re on a budget, I have found a few great pairs at H&M for $20 or less in the past!

Panama Hats

I am not sure that this is a 2020 trend specifically, but I have fallen in love with hats! I never thought I’d be a hat person, but here we are! I recently bought a panama hat from Justfab.com, and I have been wearing it pretty much daily on this beach trip! I love the natural color because it matches any outfit. Not only has this hat been covering up my frizzy beach hair, but it is stylish and adds so much to the most basic of outfits!

Flowy Dresses

In the summer time, there is a very good chance that you will see me rocking a dress. I have become such a fan of midi dresses because they are somehow both classy and even a bit sexy at the same time. Truthfully, any length of dress can be worn in the summer; whether that is mini, midi, or maxi. Flowy dresses always look so pretty in the summer time, and these are currently the ones I reach for the most!

Strappy Sandals

In the summer, I like to keep my shoes very simple. This often means opting for flip flops, cute sandals, or block heels; nothing too fancy. Right now, strappy sandals are in style, and I love the look of them! In some ways, they remind me of ballet slippers, making them appear very feminine, which is my favorite style.

Animal Prints

I was never really the kind of person who enjoyed wearing animal prints. I remember wearing cheetah print sometimes as a kid, but I grew out of that phase, and never really looked back. Then, all of a sudden, cheetah print came back in a BIG way. Needless to say, I have bought quite a few cheetah printed clothing items since then! Lately, it seems that snakeskin has been a major trend, and I recently bought the cutest snakeskin romper from Priceless (Check out that ootd here).

Florals

Another trend that I do not believe will die. I absolutely adore anything floral. This trend could really be worn all year round, but of course, it looks best in the spring and summer time! I especially love the look of a vintage floral pattern, but bright colors are always beautiful for summer.

Bright Colors

This season, neon green, orange, and pink are trending, and I am not the least bit surprised. These colors are perfect for summer and they can be worn in clothing, or in bathing suits. Neon colors always look nice on a tan as well!

White

I have always said this, but white will forever be my favorite color on a tan. It actually makes a person appear to be tanner than they really are! It is a color that I go back to so often! (A white dress is the perfect staple piece to add to your wardrobe.)

I hope you enjoyed reading about some of my favorite summer fashion essentials! Be on the lookout for my next blog post (this one will relate to my 21st birthday)!

Thank you so much for reading!

OOTD: Just a Fling

Hey everyone! Today I am sharing an ootd (outfit of the day) with you all! I am always looking for new places to shop, and I follow many fashion pages on Instagram. A while back, I followed @shoppriceless on Instagram. I would always love the outfits that they posted, but I never bought from them until now!

This is the “Just a Fling Snakeskin Romper” in a size medium. I bought this for $45. I absolutely love rompers because they are stylish and so easy to wear. Snakeskin seems to be a major trend right now, so I knew I needed to own at least one item with a snakeskin print. The outfit seems to be made of a decent quality, however the items on the site may be a little bit overpriced.

To go with the romper, I decided to wear some simple black block heels. If you keep up with my blog, you have probably seen these shoes before. They are my go-to heels! They match everything and I always go back to them. I bought these from Amazon a couple years ago.

I am a gold jewelry kind of girl, so of course, that is what I wore today! I layered on 2 necklaces, a gold coin and a herringbone. I recently bought both of these and I’ve been wearing them all the time. The gold coin was purchased from Amazon, and the herringbone was purchased from DarlingJewelryStudio on Etsy! I am wearing 2 gold bracelets, both are from Amazon. For earrings, I am wearing a pair that used to be my moms. And lastly, I wore my 2 gold rings that I wear everyday!

A few of my jewelry pieces and my shoes are linked here!

Fashion Picks for my Everyday Style

I love looking put together and styling different outfits. This has been a passion of mine since I was a little girl; the only difference is my style is much better! Today, I am going to break down my go-to clothing and accessories that make up my everyday look.

There are certain items of clothing that I will never wear outside of the house. I always say that I have to look “decent” before going out. This doesn’t mean going full glam 24/7, but it does mean no sweatpants, pajamas, or old, unflattering clothing outside of the house. While it many not seem like it, I definitely have quite a few casual days too!

Now, I have mentioned this before, but I find it difficult to describe my style. I am constantly changing up my looks, from girly and chic to casual and cool. I can be really bold and out there, and other times I like to keep it simple. It honestly depends on so many things! If I had to use a few words to describe my style, I would say vintage inspired, feminine, and bold. I find myself always going back to a feminine and classic look.

This outfit perfectly captures my go-to glam look (not necessarily my everyday look).

Clothing

Crop tops

Crop tops have been in style for quite some time now, and I have been a fan since day 1. I know that they can be worn very casually, but I have found ways to wear them and make them look classy (see photo above). It depends on the style and color! I own quite a few crop tops, and I’ll typically wear them all year round (but even moreso throughout the spring and summer time)!

High waisted bottoms

Ever since high waisted bottoms have come back in style, I have been completely obsessed! I feel that they are flattering on so many body types! If I decide to wear jeans, they are always high waisted. The same can be said for shorts, and even some skirts! Plus, crop tops look best with high waisted bottoms. When pairing the two pieces together, you really can’t go wrong.

Midi dresses/skirts

Most of the time, especially in the warmer months, I’ll opt for skirts or dresses over pants or shorts! I absolutely love how effortless dresses are, and they can be so easy to style! I love the classy look of a midi dress/skirt. They aren’t too short, and they aren’t too long. They perfectly end mid-calf.

Accessories

Block heels

While flats are incredibly comfortable, and I choose them over heels often, there is something about heels that I just love. While I love the look of stiletto heels, I am terrified of falling in them! Plus, I don’t think I could walk in them very easily! I am a big fan of chunky/block heels. These are much easier to walk in, and they are still very stylish. In the spring and summer, I’ll wear strappy block heels, and in the fall and winter you’ll see me rocking chunky booties!

Gold dainty jewelry

I used to be a big fan of silver jewelry, but in recent years, gold has become my go-to. I still wear silver, depending on what looks best with my outfit! I also used to love chunky jewelry, and now I absolutely adore the look of dainty pieces. I’ll typically wear dangly earrings, simple bracelets, a dainty necklace, and my 2 gold rings.

I always have to laugh when my family and I go out together because 80% of the time, I am overdressed compared to the rest of them! I never really mind though, because I love dressing up (even if it is just to go out to eat on the weekends). I always say that I wish I had big, fancy events to go to because then I could dress up all the time and have a real reason for it! Some people say that they save fancy outfits for special occasions, well, I’m the type of person who feels that life is a special occasion!

I hope you’re all having a beautiful day! Thank you so much for reading!

Sister Style Swap

Hey everyone! Today I am doing something a bit different! I was watching YouTube recently and came across a few “sister style swap” videos. I thought it was funny seeing two sisters with two very different styles swapping looks for a day. I was inspired to do this myself, and I knew my younger sister Alexa would be interested in doing it as well.

Alexa (or Lexi, as we call her), is my younger sister. She is 16, and I am 20. When we were little, I would always dress Lexi up, often putting her in kitten heels and frilly dresses. At the time, she didn’t mind being my own human barbie doll. If anything, she loved it. As we got older, we came in to our own personal styles that ended up being very different from each others. While my love of heels and dresses remained, Lexi found a love for graphic tees and mom jeans.

Let’s start by describing our own personal style!

Amanda:

If you have been following my blog and keeping up with my ootd’s (outfit of the days), you most likely have a feel for my style already. I personally feel like there is not one way to describe my style. I always say my style is all over the place (in the best way possible). I am constantly changing up my looks. One day I will walk down the stairs in a long pink dress, and the next day I’ll be in jeans and a t-shirt. If I had to describe my style in a few words I would say that I am mostly attracted to pieces that are vintage (or vintage inspired), feminine, and bold. I can wear some things that are very out there and unique, and other times I am very laid-back and casual (it honestly depends on so many things; the weather, my mood, the event, etc. though I think many people could say this). I feel that the outfits in my “before” photo represent my style most.

Lexi:

Lexi enjoys being comfortable and if she had to describe her personal style, she would use the words laid-back, fun, and unique. She often goes for jeans and t-shirts, but she mixes it up at times as well. She isn’t afraid to rock bright colors, and she will SOMETIMES choose to wear a dress or a matching set. Lexi has a small collection of sneakers and that is really all she wears when it comes to shoes. While her style is not incredibly girly, she likes to go all out when it comes to her hair and makeup. The “before” photo above perfectly captures Lexi’s style.

Time to Swap!

Amanda:

Ok, so it’s pretty clear that Lexi and I have different styles. I am much more girly, and she tends to be more casual. So, this is different for me, to say the least. I never really wear graphic tees, and if I do, it’s rare. This one specifically has old cartoon characters on it (most of which she was unfamiliar with, but she liked it and wears it anyway). I was comfortable wearing the jeans because they are mine (we are different sizes in jeans), but the shoes were very out there in my opinion. They are light pink and floral (which I liked), however they are a bit more of a platform shoe. I really only wear sneakers when I am working out or hiking, so I wouldn’t really ever choose to wear these myself. Lately, Lexi has been putting butterfly clips in her hair almost daily, so she put a couple in my hair to complete the look. I never really do much when it comes to styling my hair, but I am not exactly a fan of butterfly clips! I felt like I looked a lot younger than I am while wearing them.

The entire outfit was very Lexi, which was exactly what I wanted for this challenge. I wanted us to completely transform ourselves into the other person. I felt fine walking around in public (mostly because all we did was eat some lunch at the park, so there was really no one around).

Lexi:

When I first thought of doing this swap, I knew I wanted to put Lexi in a dress. She typically goes for jeans or shorts rather than skirts and dresses (plus, she sometimes claims that I dress like an old woman, so I wanted to put her in something a bit more… vintage 😉 ). I knew this would be out of her comfort zone for sure. As I watched Lexi walk around in my heels, I had to laugh. She didn’t struggle very much but she did complain that her feet were killing her a couple times! I am normally comfortable wearing heels a bit longer.  For her hair, I simply took 2 strands in the front and clipped them back with a diamond hair clip. I never really do too much to my hair, but I love this hair style because it is so easy to do, plus I think it’s pretty. As we walked around the park Lexi brought up the fact that she felt awkward and uncomfortable because she would never wear this outfit. Again, lucky for her, no one was really around. Plus, no stranger knows how we normally dress anyway.

I have actually worn this exact outfit before (if you’ve been following my blog from the beginning you may remember 😉). I am so used to standing out when I am with my family because I dress up so often. Even when my family is out in t-shirts and pants, I’ll be wearing a dress. Lexi, however, is not used to that at all!

Seeing our family’s reactions to our new look was hilarious. My brother even walked over to Lexi thinking it was me, so I’d say we did a pretty good job!  Lexi and I also thought it would be fun to include our older sister, Michelle, in this challenge so maybe we will do that sometime in the future! We all have such different styles so it would be fun to do it again!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post. Lexi and I had fun swapping styles! Lexi will be posting a YouTube video of our style swap experience in the next few days, so be on the lookout for that and subscribe to support her! Her YouTube channel will be linked here (I will update once she posts the video)!

Leave me a comment and tell me whose style is most similar to your own!

Thank you so much for reading!
