Friday Style Challenge: Turbans




Top: Marshall's // Shorts and Floral Cardigan: Nordstrom's // Turban: Thrifted // Clutch: Vintage from mom // Cuff: Forever 21 // Sandals: K-mart

Happy Friday Friends! I am so excited to share this post with you because it is my very first style challenge! Last weekend I got together with some of my blogger ladies where we attended a clothing swap hosted by Lifecrowd which was SO fun! If you know me, and the company I work for (the one-of-a-kind insanely amazing iPhone app where you shop stylemates closets originALS-Poshmark) you better believe I love getting my hands on other fashionista's goodies (One man's trash is another mans treasure right?!)! So after mimosas and mingling, we were able to swap it like its hot- and good time was had by all! Check out some of the pics from the event here and here

Which I digress, I know, because the root of the Turban Style Challenge came about, because my long time pal, Meghan of "Voila!", scored a turban at the swap, which reminded me of this turban I scored thrifting years ago that I had never worn! Annnd it gets even better- Krystal of "This Time Tomorrow" Adiel of "It's Because I Think Too Much" , Rebecca of "Thirty Five Inch Inseam",and Kellen of "And So It Goes" are joining the fun! Because lets face it- turbans are not the easiest of things to wear, so this was a perfect opportunity to put our fashion styling skills to the test and just have fun with it! I decided to keep it simple and went with basic black shorts, crochet top and a sheer floral cardi and was feeling very 'bohemian gypsy'. 

Check out how the amazingly stylish Meghan, Kellen, Krystal, Rebecca, and Adiel wore their turbans! And have a wonderful LONG weekend! :-D
