This is the first Dynamic Duo of the new year! It's been four long months since we did one--and with our anniversary coming up, I thought it'd be the perfect timing to reunite and do a post together. It's kinda surreal how about a year ago, I was hosting my first giveaway; choosing Jen as the winner; emailing her about doing a collaboration; and starting Dynamic Duo. So much has changed within this year. We have definitely matured since our first post together. We started it up just for fun, but it has blossomed into a friendship that I wouldn't trade for anything in the world.
We each picked out an item this time, and this rooster-printed top was my pick. Both Jen and I usually tend to pick solids (and stripes and florals) so I thought we both needed a quirky print injected into our closets. Not gonna lie though--I had a tough time styling this, but in the end, I went with the less-is-more-route. I tried to do some crazy print-mixing thing and some layering thing, but I like how it turned out even if I'm wearing the same skirt as I am in my last outfit post (I'm only human afterall). I thought Yoshi (my belt) was a bit lonely so I hope he had a good chat with all the roosters on my shirt through out the day. I would just like to note how drastically different our weather is: typical East Coast vs West Coast rivalry--I think I win this round though. W: 1 E: 0.
Don't forget to enter my giveaway for your chance to win a pair of earrings and a $15 giftcard to F21! Jen has a giveaway going on too.
Have a good weekend everyone!
Until next post,
