Not seeing my girlfriends in quarantine has felt like a big loss. They’re my people, my sounding boards, they help me through bouts of anxiety, we lift each other up, we laugh, and we have fun together.
Since the weather warmed up, we’ve been doing socially distanced dinners in backyards and the beach which has been really nice. And walks! So many walks.
My friend Eva and I had been talking about doing an outfit swap post together since early 2020 and finally decided let’s just do it with masks on because why not? Let’s do something silly together and have a much-needed laugh.
The idea was to dress each other (from mask to toe) in an outfit that totally represented ourselves. When I saw this blue and white Lilly dress I thought there’s nothing more “me” than that!
Which is hilarious because it’s the exact opposite of Eva’s style. She grew up in Manhattan and has her cool-girl look nailed! We both wear lots of color and pattern but in a very different way. We have a running joke about how different our styles are.
I love that we picked each other’s looks blindly and both ended up with gingham headbands… I guess New England is finally rubbing off on her 🙂 The headband I had her wear is from The Tiny Tassel, a Black female-owned business that you should check out if you haven’t already. Mimi, the owner, makes beautiful bright and preppy skirts, jewelry, headbands, and more.
I hope you enjoy our little outfit swap and that in inspires you to do something silly that makes you smile this weekend!
I’m taking Friday and Monday off to spend time with my family in Martha’s Vineyard (safely!) and will be back with my living room reveal on Tuesday. I can’t wait to share how the space turned out!
