Roommate Remix: Mellow Yellow & Urban Grunge

So you know that idea I was talking about that my roommate Corina and I came up with? You're looking at it! I've always felt a bit narcissistic posting outfits of just me. I mean, it's my blog, and I certainly enjoy documenting what I wear. However, there are many times when I've created outfits for my friends and enjoyed watching them get all dressed up and feel beautiful and confident in what I put together for them. 
So when Corina hesitantly asked me if I'd do the same for her, a lightbulb went off. Why not make this a regular feature? It'll be called Roommate Remix, and we can showcase outfits I've put together for her. It just takes a fresh eye and some creativity for a person to see their closet in a new light!
 Corina's got this bubbly, childlike attitude that meshes well with her inclinations towards bright colors and hippie-esque clothing. So for this outfit, I tried to match that with a colorful, bohemian style that fits her personality. Some contrasting brights with her pretty yellow dress and pink belt made the perfect backdrop for some boho-themed gladiators, print bag, and wooden earrings!
For my look, I went with a darker, more grungy style for the day. This houndtooth print skirt (or "dog's bite" as Corina likes to call it) is going to get a lot of use in the upcoming fall! For now, I kept it simple with black and white pieces and used my cobalt blue boots for a dash of color. 
Tank, Vest, & Skirt: thrifted   Boots: c/o My Hot Shoes   Bag: c/o Wholesale-Dress   Watch: c/o Feral Watches


 Since mom was with us, we got a few fun photos taken together as well.
I'm so happy we've grown close as friends and roommates. We tend to balance each other out, and we have similar lifestyle habits, which makes living together work great. My soft-spoken nature has helped in situations where her more fiery side could've blown things up, and her strong stance in handling life has helped me grow a stronger spine. 

Hope you like this Roommate Remix post! What do you think? Is this something you'd like to see more of? 

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

That's so sweet of you to style her! Can't wait to see more of these in the future :) As to the clothes, I love the yellow dress on her, specially with the pink belt. So jealous of your houndstooth skirt, I bought one last year but had to return it cause it didn't fit :( Love the pop of color with your booties!

Katie Aman said...

I love to see you and your roommate! You are both lovely, and so different! I love how the yellow dress complements her light skin and freckles so well, it's so beautiful. And your outfit is killer! Houndstooth is one of my favorite prints, and that skirt is definitely a stunner. Those cobalt boots are the most amazing pop of color. Glad you two are meshing well! Living with someone else can be tough, but it sounds like you two are getting along swimmingly :)
