putting Britt + Whit to the test

I had the pleasure of a styling pow-wow with San Francisco bloggers Britt + Whit.  If you aren't familiar with their blog, you've got to check them out.  Especially for styling tips on Bay Area living.  We don't have many maxi dress days but they do it up by layering a maxi with a sleek leather jacket.  I have some decent basics in my wardrobe but I don't always know how to put them together.  
The girls came over, perused through my closet and helped me pick some awesome outfits!
Here was one of my faves that came out of the meeting.

Fiery red Joe's Jeans with my fave new black & white stripe blouse.  Another new addition I can't get enough of is my neon green chain necklace!

Britt styling an everyday work outfit.  A great tip they mentioned was to check out J.Crew catalog for simple styling looks.  Layer a belt, accessories & mix unexpected colors together!
My new Madewell Roseblossom skirt.  I'm obsessed with this color right now!
Do not forget the jewelry!  I'm obviously a fan of gold right now!
Blousing it! 

Laying it all out there!
I think these girls are on to something!  Maybe they should start styling locals, you think?

One of the lessons I learned was that fashion styling isn't much different than styling interiors.  As long as you have the basics down, adding on the layers to add interest and integrating unexpected pops of colors- bam! you have a classy fashion forward outfit!
