Better Than Shopping (Yes, there is an Answer)

Blouse: BarIII for Macys; Skirt: Via Lynzy from Sparkling Footsteps; Clutch: Thrifted; Belt: NordstromsBP; Bracelet: Francesca's Collections; Necklace: H&M
So, you know what's better than shopping??? Hmmm hmmm hmmm? Blogger swapping. Yes please. No need to shop when you've got clothes coming to you in the mail by a super beautiful and stylish blogger friend. And that friend happens to be Lynzy over at Sparkling Footsteps. Score. Our lil swappy swappy action entailed us sending two special items to each other to style up to our little heart's desire. First on the list was this lovely mocha brown maxi skirt from Foreva21. I was a little worried about pairing a maxi with a billowy top but I think it might work due to the tops sheerness.  I don't know, you be the judge.  Here's Lynzy's take on the mocha maxi.  You can also see how Lynzy styled up my Parker dress here. I think she rocked it. I love her accessory choices with those hot platforms and pink purse.

On another note, I hope you all had a fun weekend!! xo

I love it. I think it does look good with that blouse!

Gertrude said...

You look great! Love the blouse :) xo

Natalie said...

Oh, blogger swapping. Now I need to get in on that.

I think the top looks good. The skirt is fitted in its own way.

Unknown said...

What a great idea on blog swapping! Sheer genuis. You look great!!! I would probably pair it with a floppy hat and call it a day :)

Frannie Pantz said...

You have both done a wonderful job with your swaps! This top is beautiful with the skirt!

Sunshine said...

you look so gorgeous in that maxi skirt because you're so tall and lean! how fun, are you swapping any other items? :)

Nice idea- someone should arrange a big swap up between the bloggers.

I love how you both went in such different directions with the pieces xxx

Lynzy said...

Loving the way you paired it with the billowy top. I think it's perfect together! :) xx

Rachael said...

Blogger swapping. That's a pretty cool idea!

Neris said...

HOW FUN!!!!! Love that maxi skirt!!! Some maxi things look funny on me because I am so short. I normally have to wear them with platforms to trick people into thinking I am tall and skinny. LOL.


Michelle (michabella) said...

ps- I like how you paired it with that top, btw. I think it was a great match!

Fash Boulevard said...

Love these pictures. You have amazing style. I love your Bar III top. I'm obsessed with Bar III lately. They have the best clothes. :) Love your maxi skirt and accessories as well.

I would love if you could stop by my celebrity style and fashion blog sometime.


Corrine said...

What a great idea! I love the color of the maxi - beautiful! Have a wonderful week! :)

Thank goodness for blogger swapping, you look fab. I think the sheerness helps balance out the materials and looks beautiful with the skirt.

Alisha said...

You and Lynzy are too cute!! Great thinking on swapping clothes. Geeze, why didn't I think of that?!

Love this maxi on you!


Daer0n said...

There are no words for that blouse, it is so gorgeous. I love the shape of the skirt and the flowiness of it. The beacelet is really nice, love it!

Blogger swapping sounds like so much fun, I have never done it but I imagine I would be thrilled to do it. There is just something about receiving stuff in the mail that makes it so much fun and exciting!

Lynzy has great style, thanks for the link to her blog, I think I am adding her blog to my favorite blog list as well :)

Shelby said...

ooh, the skirt rocks with the billowy top... it is definitely the sheer-ness that makes it. it is gorgeous!! love your bracelet too... and i would agree that blogger swapping sounds better than shopping <3shelby


Liesl said...

Gorgeous! Love the wispy, bell sleeves on that top and the long, lean skirt...looks beautiful on you! Love blogger swapping...someone from France recently approached me about doing it! So fun!

Katherine said...

so happy to have found your blog!

love the way you styled the skirt- never would have thought a billowy shirt would look so good with the maxi, but it totally works!

Thats a cool idea! It fits you perfectly, photos are fabulous.
Maybe I could do that with some fellow blog friends only if I wasn't burned on the sun on Sunday, and only thing I can wear is...well, nothing (husband very happy).
At least I managed to blog from the beach while I still was able to type!

Hello beautiful blogger who I just found. Nice to meet you. (:

I was just wondering how to style some of my longer skirts today, and you gave me the answer. The flowy top goes great with that maxi. I'm sure if I look up through the other comments, everyone will agree!
