You guuuuuys! I’m super excited for my new Style Crush series! This is something that I’ve been wanting to do since last summer. These photos were actually shot back in September and I’m just now getting the ball rolling on it. I’m the worst, haha. BUT, I’ve already got April and May’s style crushes tentatively lined up, so I’m committed now! Woohoo!
Here’s what the Style Crush series is all about… I think I have a pretty defined style, but there are sooo many other different styles out there that I love and appreciate so I wanted to start showcasing some of them here on The Savvy Camel. I think it’s going to be a fun way to show off other creative and stylish people who deserve some extra attention. I’ll be showing off my personal friends, other bloggers, and strangers in the street. Just kidding about strangers in the street. Maybe one day, haha. And, this is pure speculation, but I have this feeling that you guys will enjoy seeing some different styles on here aaand seeing some of your friends on here! 😀
Here’s how the series is going to work. I’ll be comin’ atcha the first Monday of each month with a new style crush. This first one happens to be on a Tuesday because, as you probably saw, yesterday was our second wedding anniversary so of course my anniversary post had to go live on our anniversary, hehe. But in the future… the first Monday of each month! Moving on. Obviously my style crush will be the center of the post but I also think it will be cool to show how different styles can compliment each other so you’ll actually be seeing me in the photos alongside my style crush. My style crush is going to bring it with their style and choose what they want to wear for the shoot. I’m going to take the backseat and choose my outfit to coordinate with theirs. But that way you guys can see how different styles can really play on each other!
I’m seriously so excited for this! Probably the most excited I’ve been about anything with my blog so far so I’m really hoping you guys will enjoy this series! So without further adieu, my first ever style crush is…
This is my sweet, gorgeous friend Katelyn! I don’t always click quickly and easily with people (#introvertproblems) but Katelyn and I met at work (Nordstrom) about a year ago and hit it off from day one. We literally joke that we’re the same person. The way we think and behave is freaky similar. It’s like looking in a personality mirror, haha.
But ironically our styles are almost exact opposites, which is tons of fun! I think her style is more indicative of her personality than mine is, though. Her style is just… fun! She’s all about color, textures, and sparkle. If it has tule, metallic, sequins, or a rainbow of colors on it, she probably already owns it, hehe. I honestly don’t know how else to describe her style other than fun and free spirited. She’s like a sparkly unicorn and colorful ballerina mermaid all wrapped into one. So let’s hop to some photos of this beaut! (insert heart eyes emoji, hehe)
Told you she was sparkly. I mean, look at those shoes! Love ’em. And all of her fabulous arm candy, too. This was a perfect first style crush! It shows off Katelyn’s colorful, textured, sparkly style perfectly! And I feel like my simple black and metallic pleated dress definitely suits my neutral and (sometimes) sleek style. And the metallic makes it look like it still totally belongs beside the leading lady’s dress. See what I mean by styles playing on each other? 🙂
Alright friends and fam, that wraps up my first of many style crushes! I really hope you guys enjoyed Katelyn’s super pretty style and are already looking forward to next month! And of course, HUGE thank you to Katelyn for helping me kick this thing off! You da best! And another thanks to my number one guy and favorite photographer, Charlie, of course. 🙂
