Silver Lining: How We Wore It: Fashion Collaboration

How We Wore It: Fashion Collaboration

Here's the thing. I'm not a fashion blogger. Once, I ran into a girl at the grocery store who said "you're that Silver Lining fashion girl!" I looked down at my leggings and my husband's sweater and patted my non-Pinterest-worthy messy bun, and I was like "HAHAHA you are such a sweetheart, but no. Just no." 

While that encounter did leave me feeling kind of like a celebrity (a random person at Smith's knows me!), I definitely don't count myself among the upper echelons of fashion bloggers. Or any echelons of fashion bloggers, for that matter! It is fun for me to document my everyday style though, so I put together a little fashion collaboration with some of my favorite lifestyle bloggers.

For this collaboration, we all started with the same image. The challenge was to recreate our unique take on the image with what we already had in our closets.

The starting outfit is from Suburban Faux-Pas. You'd think, since I chose the photo this round, that I would choose something that I could easily replicate. But nope! I remember looking at the picture after I emailed it out and thinking "I don't have anything remotely resembling this!" 

I loved the colors in her outfit, so I copied the navy, tan, and burgundy in my own outfit. I also tried the cuffed jeans and the ankle boots. 

Here are the other bloggers who joined me in this challenge. They're some of my favorite (and stylish) lifestyle bloggers. Check out their versions of the outfit!

Meghan at King and Ford
Krystle at Krystle, Darling
Sierra at Sierra's View
Alexa at He and I
