Fashionably Friendly Friday: Introductions

I feel incredibly lucky to have several coworkers I consider great friends both in and outside of work. We bond over many things, but fashion is one of the ties that bind us together.  We love each other's fashion choices almost on a daily basis so we decided to combine our shared love of fashion into a new Friday series.  We each brought in difficult to style/or things we only style one way items to be remixed.  Together we filled a conference table with jewelry, scarves, head wear, sweaters and vests and split them to wear and then pass along.  At the end of this challenge, you'll see all of these items worn by four women with different styles, shapes and sizes.



Since you'll be seeing a lot of my fashionably friendly coworkers on Fridays, I thought I'd introduce  you to them.

This is Andrea, she is the entire reason I got into long distance running.  She's also a major reason behind my love of Frye boots, as she has several pairs of killer boots.  Andrea is also a great layer-er of tops, combiner of colors and wearer of the tallest heels.


This is Corey, she's my favorite booty-shaking, sweets indulging gal to grab a margarita and tacos with.  She's got great casual, feminine style.  She makes looking cute look easy. She usually sports colorful basics, fun flats, beaded necklaces and big smiles.


This is Marisol, and I want her entire closet.  We've joked about getting side-by-side apartments so we can share closets. We're partners in knitting and scrapbooking crime.  Besides sharing my love of Dairy Queen and yarn, she also loves finding a great deal, and rocking adorable mix-and-match pieces, and great accessories.


This is Sini, she's an amazing dancer, cooker of samosas and banger of phones (haha.) When she's not being sassy she's rocking prints better than anyone I know. I wish I had her taste for prints, bright colors and bold combinations.


And you all know me, my picture was horrendous but you know what I look like. Hopefully you'll find this Friday series a fun way to see how we style accessories individually.  If nothing else, its a fun way to wrap up the work week.

I hope you have fabulous weekends! I'm going to a concert with a friend tomorrow night, running a long run Saturday and then hosting a Superbowl party on Sunday.  GO PATRIOTS! What are you up to?

What a fun series! Can't wait!

I miss working in an office and hanging out with my female coworkers. :( Now that I work from home, my only "coworker" is Skyla, and she doesn't wear clothes.

Have a great weekend!
