Meet miss Maggie! She is one of my dearest friends and my complete soul sister in the fashion world. I love that we share the same style sense and have a love for all things big, bold and sparkly. I admire her for her eye for mixing and matching prints, patterns and colors. I am not as good at that and struggle to get away from the matchy-matchy way of thinking. She also knows how to mix and match styles to create a super cool, laid back look. I channeled her signature style with this look –I took a normal office-chic style (black pants and a tweed jacket) and paired them with a beanie and Adidas shoes to make a more casual look that is both comfortable and stylish. We styled the look together — I had fun picking out items in her closet that inspired me, and then she would pair with some of her favorite pieces. I think this was the longest prep for a photo shoot we have ever had, but I had fun looking through the seemingly endless selection of girly options, sparkles, fringe, and high heels. And the amount of jackets this girl owns…whoa! I was in heaven. Jackets are definitely her go-to item that she uses to complete every outfit.
