Guest Post: perfectly Priya

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!

One of my favorite things about having a blog, and reading blogs, is finding other bloggers who own a piece that I own too. I couldn't be more happy to have Priya guest posting with a dress that we both own - and she styled it in a way that I've never styled it, which makes me even more excited. Enjoy!

Hey everyone! I’m Priya, visiting Work Clothes, I Suppose from perfectly Priya. I’m thrilled that Bri is letting me take over for a day while she’s off tying the knot and gallivanting across Africa! Congrats, Bri and Travis, also I’m super jelly.

My blog is one part what I’m wearing, one part what I’m doing, and one part rambling about them both! I thought it would be fun to style a dress that Bri and I both have. I went through a serious Houndstooth phase in high school (absolutely no affiliation to Alabama Football) and have loved it ever since. I actually picked up this H&M dress on a family trip to Finland several years ago, so it’s a special memory piece.

Houndstooth is an awesome print because the black and white pairs well with any accent color. Red might be the most perfect one, though.

I looked through Pinterest for a fresh way to style it, but it seems like a dress this classic, and in such a classic print, wears best with a blazer, tights, and pumps. Still, this outfit is inspired by a look I’ve had on my “outfits to try!” Pinboard for a while.

These tights are a little more fun than your standard black opaque. I bought them for my office holiday party in December, and plan on wearing them instead of normal black tights to add a little interest to any outfit.

Check out how Bri has styled her dress here (actually a few times, she’s a superstar with it!) and the Pin I based my look on here. I would love to see you over at perfectly Priya, so come on by anytime; especially if your favorite things include Beyonce, Target, glitter, and cupcakes. Thanks again for having me Bri!
