Style It TWO Ways: Cobalt BLUE

Happy Friday Loves! Today’s post is special, because it is my first collaboration post with one of my blogger girlfriends, Melissa! I just love her style and blog so much, and I ‘met’ her on Instagram! I love seeing her style/natural hair pics everyday and we even have friends in common, though we’ve never met! So I asked her to partner up with me for the new series I’d like introduce to the blog; STYLE IT TWO WAYS. I was so happy that she said yes! We are both styling the color cobalt blue today and adding our own personal twist to it! Blogging has really been a creative outlet as well as an awesome way for me to network and ‘meet’ new wonderful ladies with similar interests in life and style. I love seeing how other bloggers put their spin on a look, color, or item of clothing, so I think this post, where we both show you, is a really cute idea!
This look is super simple with a few accessories to add interest to the look. I wore my cobalt blue maxi skirt you’ve seen before here. I decided to add my red & blue scarf to spice up my simple cream blouse, that you’ve seen here. I threw on my go to sandals, tribal printed clutch, and I was ready to go. My boyfriend said I “looked patriotic” lol. And he was right, something like this (maybe with a tank because of the heat & bbqs), would be perfect to wear for the 4th of July! 
So don’t forget to head over to Melissa’s blog where she styles the cutest looks, goes to fabulous natural hair and fashion events, gives hair tips, and more! So go check out how she styled the look and tell her I sent ya! Here’s a sneak peek below : 


Style Tip: If you don’t have a statement necklace that works with your outfit, loosely circle a light scarf around your neck to add some eye-catching interest to the entire look!

Yayyy! It’s Friday! hahahaha!
What I Wore: | Blouse: A’gaci | Skirt: F21 | Scarf: The Limited | Clutch: Target | Sandals: Old Navy |  Sunnies: Vintage |
