As you can see, thanks to the miracle of science, Liz and I have performed a body-swap. I am writing this from Nashville, where I have spent the day creeping Kyle out. (Jazzy won't come near me, she can sense that something's off.) Meanwhile, Liz is kicking back in London, doing some sightseeing when she's not busy scaring the bejezus out of Victor.
Okay, so I'm kidding. But here is the first outfit I styled for Liz.
For her turn of Style S.O.S. Liz wanted me to cook up some different ways she could wear her pinstripe pants. And my first thought was for that gorgeous orange cardigan she was sporting on her blog a few months ago. I tried to incorporate either pieces she already owned, or thought she might like. For example, since we're both fans of The Great Gatsby, I included the Out of Pint Gatsby shirt.
And this is how Liz ended up styling it! The funny thing was, I did actually consider this floral babydoll top, which I'd seen her wear once before. But then, I rejected it as being too busy, in favour of the graphic T-shirt. How wrong I was - doesn't this shirt look pretty with the pants and cardigan?
For her second look, I decided to go all pink and girly, since it's no mystery to anyone what Liz' favourite colour is! Any pink outfit should include her pink Marshalls wedges, I thought, and that cute Jewelscape tee she wore with a pencil skirt a while ago. The neckline of that shirt is too pretty to distract from it with a necklace, so I added massive earrings and some arm candy. And her pink biker jacket, for extra badassery. With the option to swap it out for a cardigan, if the biker jacket was a bit much.
And again, I lurve the final result! I love how Liz used the sash to sort of tie everything together. No pun intended! This second look, especially, feels very "Liz" to me, don't you think? I loved how they both turned out, and I had so much fun styling your pants, Liz, so thanks for playing along!
