Spring Scarves Collaboration with Bramblewood Fashion!

     I'm excited to be doing a style collaboration today with Ashley from Bramblewood Fashion! Ashley is a Christian fashion blogger from the Midwest, and she is an absolute sweetheart. (She also works at Ulta which I am super jealous of- hello discounts on make-up!) For our collaboration, we decided to each style a scarf that was perfect for springtime. Scarves can be great pieces for transition seasons, and both of us realized that we had more than enough scarves to choose from in our own closets! ;-)

      Scarf: Lilly Pulitzer {Limited Edition for Belk stores, similar here} || T-shirt: {Old, similar here} || Jeans: American Eagle Outfitters: Cardigan: LOFT || Sandals: Jack Rogers || Purse: Michael Kors || Sunglasses: DEB Shops {similar here} || Earrings: Ten Thousand Villages || Bracelet: Kate Spade || Lips: Covergirl BlastFlipstick in Stunner 

     Out of all the scarves that I own, this is my favorite! Definitely part of the reason that I love it is because it's Lilly and it has an adorable pattern, but mainly I adore it because of the story behind it. In fact, this scarf has such a great story attached with it that I once devoted a full blog post solely to the story of how I got this scarf!

      Wearing a bright scarf like this is such a simple way to dress up a casual outfit of a white t-shirt, cardigan, and boyfriend jeans. This could easily be my Saturday afternoon uniform during this interesting transitional weather season! 

      One thing that I had fun with as well was coordinating my make-up to match my outfit! This semester on most school days I find myself gravitating towards my same favorite tried and true products for convenience sake, and many of these are neutral in color (or basic nude/peach shades for the the lips). For this look, I experimented with a fun bright blue eyeliner on my lower lash line (to bring out the blue in the scarf), and rocked a bright coral lip to coordinate with my cardigan. I absolutely love playing and experimenting with make-up, and I really need to keep doing that more since I own so much of it! 

      Be sure to stop over to Ashley's blog sometime today to see how she styled her scarf outfit!

      Did all of you have a good weekend? As I said in my post on Friday, I had an extremely long to-do list for this weekend! I didn't get quite everything done, but I did accomplish most of the major tasks, which included an application to join one of the selective honor societies at my college, finishing all of my assignments for my online classes for the week, and getting some reading done for classes as well. Yet I have more applications for various things to work on this week- including an application for an incredible internship for early this summer! I would appreciate any prayers as I work on and submit that one this week! :-)
