Guest Post: Liz of 26 and Counting

Continuing with the guest posts, today you meet Liz, a dear blogging buddy of mine. She has the most fabulous corporate-chic style you will see and she's a sweetheart! Check her out, you'll love her! Also, later tonight I will announce a winner for the Karen Kane giveaway!

Hi there! I’m Liz from 26 and Counting.

While I may have relocated to Ohio recently {I’m a Kentucky girl through and through}, Linley and I are both southern girls. Which means we MUST have a lot in common, right? We both say {and by say, I mean write} y’all. We love a heavy side part. And we both support our sports team til the bitter end.

If you haven’t heard, Linley is starting her new job soon. Since I usually focus on corporate appropriate looks {fun business casual if you will}, I thought I’d put a Linley twist on an office look.

Linley is great when it comes to accessorizing classic looks. She can take something as simple and a t-shirt and make it her own with jewelry, a scarf or even her hairstyle. Keeping that in mind – I decide to jazz up my go-to button up {aka the office staple}. To go for a true Linley look, I added two accessories to make it stand out just a bit more and opted for these wedges over my usual pumps.

What do you think? Would Linley approve?

(Yes, I approve - big time! Love this look Ms. Liz! I'll probably re-create it.)

Are you here in Cincinnati? This looks like the bridge at Eden Park (twin lakes area), like here: http://whatiwore2day.blogspot.com/2011/01/glam-gram.html

Haha, I love to write "y'all", I just think it sounds funny (in a good way) :-) I'd even say it more if I actually spoke more English in my daily life. But seeing how I live in Germany, there's little opportunity, sadly :-D And of course I don't want to look like a rip-off, seeing how I'm not a southerner AT ALL!

Relatable Style

I love the look, Liz. Linley, you should definitely recreate it with your own pieces if you haven't already. I would love to see a side by side show and tell of how you put your spin on the look.

Good luck at your new job!
