Friday Fancies ~ Blog Swap

Its time for Friday Fancies with a little twist, we are swapping blogs! I couldn't be happier to be paired up with Ivana of Macarons and Pearls!

I really envy her bold sense of style & today's look is no exception! Definitely a perfect look for shopping!

Thank you Ivana for pulling together such a great outfit!

Once again, Allison from Long Distance Loving had a great Friday´s Fancies idea. We´re doing a blog swap today, and I couldn´t be happier, being paired with Roxy. I´ve only recently discovered her lovely blog, but
I´m already completely smitten with her beautiful jewelry designs. I think we have quite a similar taste and I´m really happy to share my favorite shopping outfit with you! So here it goes:

Hi, my name is Ivana, and I´m a shopaholic. There. I said that. I love shopping, it´s no good denying it. Once I wrote that shopping was my cardio, and it´s still true. Obviously, my bank manager would disagree, but I love going through racks full of clothes, searching for the hidden treasures. Of course, if you want your shopping trip to be successful, you need the perfect shopping outfit. To me, this means simple clothes and nothing too fussy. I love myself a well fitted pencil skirt, but I´m sure I´d hate it wholeheartedly if I had to put it off and on ten times in several different changing rooms! My perfect shopping outfit consists of a pair of skinny jeans, a simple button down, a cardigan and a big tote that holds all my essentials and that can serve as a shopper when in need. Of course, the most important rule is: no high heels! A pair of well-worn boots in winter, or some ballet flats in summer are just as stylish as your favorite pair of stilettos, and your feet will thank you infinitely! Steer clear of  tons of jewelry (I personally hate when my chandelier earrings get all tangled up in the sweater I´m just trying on). A statement watch and a pair of stylish sunnies is all you need to look amazing while on the hunt for your next perfect closet addition! Don´t you agree?
What does your favorite shopping outfit look like? And thanks so much for having me as a guest, Roxy, I really had a blast!

  3. great outfit picks! LOVE!!!


  4. Love both the look she picked for you and the look you picked for her...totally cute and chic! I'm kinda like you when it comes to shopping, I just want a skirt that's easy on and easy off, a simple camisole for trying under things, and a funky-fun sweater to add interest but still make for no-fuss trying on! But I definitely want to wear heels because I wear them every day and have to see how new clothes would look with a little height!
