Well guys, it’s that time again. The first Monday of a new month… which means it’s Style Crush tiiiime! I don’t know why but it feels like it’s been forever since my last style crush even though it’s definitely only been a month. Regardless, I’m super excited for my August style crush for a lot of reasons. First, I obviously think she’s super stylish (hence: “style crush”). Second, she’s my all time best friend! Literally! This chick was my maid of honor in my wedding! We’ve been bffs since middle school so for, goodness, like 15 years?! Saying that makes me feel insanely old, omg! Anyways, she’s always had a huge impact on my style! From our combined collection of Paul Frank t-shirts (who remembers those funny little monkeys at Delia’s?) to accidentally showing up to school in matching palm print Bermuda shorts (we’ve come a long way, okay guys?) to a mutual adoration of trips to Marshall’s. 🙂 So, without further adieu I would like for everyone to meet my very stylish, beautiful, funny, and kind best friend…
OMG! I just have to say again how excited I am that KATE is on the blog right now! She’s my favorite and I get to share her with all of you! *insert crying emoji* And how gorgeous is she?! She’s seriously such a beauty and I love that her style accentuates that. I’ve always felt like her style is effortless yet very put together – a perfect combo. She’s never over the top but always looks super stylish! You guys know how much I love good style that’s simple, and she’s definitely a huge influence behind that.
I feel like something that Kate and I have in common with our styles is that we both like to take classic pieces that have a slightly trendy twist to them. Like a classic blue striped top with a trendy tie in the front. 😉 It’s classic yet trendy so you have a piece that’s versatile, can be carried into next season, and is effortlessly stylish.
The other thing I love about Kate’s style is how laid back it is. I’ve always loved that she never looks like she’s trying too hard (again, she’s so effortless!). She’s always been this way. Take her bag and shoes for instance, both trendy with the lace ups and the studs, but also easy going and perfect for so many occasions. Her shoes would look super cute with a little sundress and her bag would look killer with black skinnies, a white button down, and cognac booties!
There ya have it, friends and fam! My girl Kate! Stylish, effortless, easy going, and clearly hilarious. This last photo is my absolute favorite because I feel like it’s 100% us. Literally always laughing. Isn’t it the best when you and your bestie have the same sense of humor? 🙂
Thank you so much, Kate, for spending part of what little time we had together shooting with me! Wouldn’t have wanted to sweat my butt off or feel insanely awkward in the streets of DTWS with anyone else but you and the man behind the lens. 🙂 Love you both endlessly! *insert crying emoji again*
