From the very beginning I knew that Emily Geaman of So Anthro and I were kindred spirits. Aside from sharing a love of fashion, we also have Emerson College in common (she graduated in 2010), but most importantly we both understand the value of Nutella lattes, polka dots, and all things pink.

Emily and I had been talking about collaborating on a post for quite some time and over the summer we found that we had another thing in common, a bright pink blazer from H&M. This became the starting point of our collaboration and we decided to style the blazers separately to express our own personal tastes and then shoot them together. I adore Emily’s sweet, sassy, New England style and I love the way her outfit works with my edgier version. I couldn’t help but feel a little bit like the evil twin in the pairing!

Emily styled her blazer in a classic, preppy, and adorable ensemble with cuffed jeans, and a simple black tee. She accessorized with strappy metallic sandals, pearls, and a gorgeous Kate Spade bag. The look was totally representative of her style which is all at once girly, trendy, and pulled together.

I took the blazer down a different path, pairing it with a screen print tank, and my beloved leather pants. I accessorized with my favorite cage heels, and some spiked arm candy. I love the way Emily and I were able to take two very similar blazers and turn them into totally different looks.

As fashion bloggers we know that the details matter. Every little bit of the outfit can express your personal style from nail color to accessories.

How perfect is this girl? I love this photo, it’s so magazine ready.

Don’t try this at home. Swinging in heels is a lot more dangerous than you think!

I love the good girl/bad girl dynamic we have going on in these photos!

A big thank you to Emily Geaman for this fantastic day! I had so much fun and I’m so happy we were able to do this shoot together. Be sure to check out So Anthro for more of Emily’s style.
