It’s Electric

Blog Inspiration Photos

My friends and i recently had a clothing swap where i acquired the green striped button up that i’m wearing in today’s photos. As times have gotten harder financially, and we’ve grown older and wiser, we’ve become more interested in finding ways that we can spend time together without spending a fortune. Admittedly in our younger years one of our favorite pass times was “window shopping”, and the reason i put that in quotation marks is because we rarely only looked at clothes from the windows. We were more likely to spend way more than our budgets allowed on impromptu shopping sprees. I’ve benefitted quite a bit from our new found interest. Quite a few of the pieces i’ve styled for the blog have come from clothing swaps, and friend’s no-longer-want piles, like the shirt in this post and the short sleeve sweater in this post. If you and your friends are looking for creative ways to add new pieces to your closets and save money all at once, i highly recommend doing clothing swaps! You can even take them one step further by timing them with each season.

This bright green J Crew button up truly came just in time for me. Turns out electric colors are right on trend for Spring 2013. I paired it with a navy cable knit sweater from Gap, Mossimo boyfriend jeans from Target, nude Dolce Vita pumps via Marshall’s, and tiny shoulder bag from Zara. The gorgeous necklace is Amrita Singh via Gilt.com.

Are you inspired to plan a clothing swap with your friends? If you do, come back and share all your great finds!

    Red lips are always a great accesory! Especially if they come along with a smile. :)

        It’s kinda like painting. I find that liquid pens are the easiest! :D Lol, yup I barely wear makeup though.
