Guest Post: on the daily EXPRESS

I'm currently traveling through Africa on my honeymoon, but I've lined up a handful of guest posts from my favorite blogs while I'm gone. Enjoy!

Gina and I don't have many of the same pieces, due to shopping at different stores, but we do have the same style, and I love finding inspiration through her posts. So when she sent over this post, and I realized just how much we do share in terms of style, I was super excited. I think you'll really enjoy this one.

Alright, you might be wondering what on earth I can bring to you as Bri's reader that would engage you because at first glance, it might not seem like I have anything in common with her. I blog a lot about shopping at Express, and I don't think Bri has ever worn anything from Express! I also share how I get fashion inspiration from random topics like TVBooks and Astrology, and none of those are really her posting style either. However, I do a pretty mean outfit interpretation if I do say so myself, so as her guest and in an effort to entertain you as her readers, I thought I would highlight and re-create some of my favorite Bri looks with my own spin.

In going through Bri's posts I saved this look as a contender for re-creating. And then I realized....I didn't have to re-create it. I've already worn almost the exact same thing (hey, maybe we do have a few things in common!):

Next up, her dressy-meets-casual combo. I've worn my grey tee dozens of times with white jeans or regular blue jeans, but for some reason never black, so I had to try this one myself. Naturally, I loved it because I'm all about easy, polished casual.

And last but not least, I'm loving her sleek outfit base that puts the emphasis on the cool jewelry in this look, but since I'm a moto jacket addict, I had to throw in my signature item on my version of this look:

I honestly love both of these new-to-me outfits and am glad I had guest-posting as an excuse to get some style inspiration from Bri! Thanks to Bri for letting me step in today, and for all of Bri's regular readers I'd love to have you stop by and visit me sometime!
