Same Basic Pieces, Two Different Takes

Hello everyone,
Hope you are having a great Sunday.  The weather here in Charlotte has been terrific!
Today I have a Guest Post.
We were paired together via Ashley and her guest post group

So my guest today is Louise,  she is a college student in Ireland.  Please give her a warm welcome...

Hi everyone I'm Louise from www.thriftylilpixie.blogspot.com,  I'm delighted to be doing a little guest post on Brett's lovely blog! Brett had the great idea of us both taking some simple basics; a white tee shirt, a jacket and some jeans, all items that are core pieces in almost everyone's wardrobe, and styling them are own way. It's so interesting to see different peoples take on things.

I've taken a very old pair of skiny jeans, a white tee from Pull and Bear and a second hand Dorothy Perkins jacket. These are all items I wear constantly because they go with everything. I've styled them for a casual look with my go to pair of Aldo boots and a skinny sequinned belt. Having a few simple, good quality pieces in your wardobe like a good fitting pair of jeans or jacket, make putting outfits together so much easier. If I wanted to take this outfit to night, I could simply put my hair up, add a pair of heels and a clutch and I'm good to go!

I can't wait to see Brett's take on the outfit. Have a great weekend!

Louise--It's nice to meet you. It would be so wonderful to actually "hear" your and Brett's accents outloud.

I like the contrast between what Louise and Brett did with the items. I found the exercise instructive. Thanks!
