Upbeat Soles Guest Post

The third fabulous lady to guest post is Shannon of Upbeat Soles! This girl's style is phenomenal! She has such a fun, playful way of pairing pieces that is the perfect mix of classy meets sassy. Her blog is one I lurk frequently for new posts, as I love that her outfits are affordable and offer something to every girl! It's an honor to have this lady on the blog today! I love that she is talking about a trend I am absolutely head over heels for...OTK boots! Make sure to stop by Upbeat Soles and take a peek...I promise you will be a repeat visitor!

Hi lovelies! First off, I want to thank Ashley for letting me crash her place today! It is definitely an honor to be here, since I am a big fan of Twenties Girl Style! My name is Shannon I blog over at Upbeat Soles! Over there you'll find lots of outfit inspiration on a budget and a little randomness here and there! Today I want to talk about my favorite trend this Fall/Winter season, the over the knee boots! Honestly, you can throw them on with just about any outfit and you instantly become fabulous in my opinion! Whether they are flat boots or heeled boots, you can wear them with pretty much anything and still make a statement! If you aren't feeling super daring or a beginner over the knee-er try them with a good pair of skinny jeans like I did here! 

Subtle, but still screams I mean business! If you a feeling a little bit more on the edgy side, try them with a great pair of cut offs and over sized sweater!

For a little bit more of a casual, flirty look go for a flat boot and pair it with a fun skater skirt or a fit and flare dress!

Ok, so have I convinced you that you need a pair of over the knee boots in your closet, if you have't already?! ;) I hope so! They are definitely a must this season! I just want to give another shot out to my girl Ashley for letting me be here today and I hope everyone has a great rest of the day! <3

Living in Color Guest Post

The second lovely blogger guest posting for me is Elle of Living in Color. Elle is another fellow teacher-fashionista that I absolutely ADORE. Sweet Elle reached out to me last spring, offering me teaching advice for my first year of teaching that was BEYOND helpful. We also had the chance to collaborate a few times this summer with our summer prints series (I hope she is up for bringing it back next year!). I am beyond obsessed with Elle's style and have taken countless looks from her blog to re-create in my classroom. This girl is just one of the sweetest most fashionable I know, so please make sure to stop by Living in Color...I promise you won't regret it! 

Hello lovely Twenties Girl Style readers! My name is Elle, and I'm the blogger behind Living in Color, a personal style and fashion blog. I am a teacher by day, and a self-proclaimed fashionista and blogger by night. Along with being inspired daily, I particularly enjoy the community that comes with blogging! I've met some fabulous teachers, and some amazing style bloggers through my blog, and I'm so thankful for those interactions! Ashley is one of my closest blogger friends, and I love collaborating with her! I can see why you are a loyal reader of her blog :) she's the best!
I always say that my blog is targeted to "style for teachers and the every-day fashionista" because we all know a teacher's salary isn't all that great, therefore, I've had to adjust my style and shopping budget accordingly. You'll see many budget-friendly pieces on my blog mixed in with some staple investment pieces. My outfits are primarily divided into two categories: Teacher Style, and Weekend Style. 

Modesty for work is very important to me, but so are trends! I try to find a happy medium, with bright and colorful pieces. I usually shop at stores like Old Navy, Gap, J.Crew Factory, LOFT, and Banana Republic for my teacher-appropriate clothes, but I find a lot of my weekend wear at and H&M. Oh, and I wouldn't be a teacher if I didn't ADORE Target ;) Below I want to share a holiday-inspired outfit with you! This is what I wore to my school's holiday party!

I styled a classic combo for my work holiday party: chambray, red, and leopard. This Chicwish skirt is absolutely gorgeous, so I had to glam it up with my fancy necklace. I love how the skirt has a feminine a-line cut, and it's so festive in cherry red! I am definitely considering repeating this outfit for my work holiday party later this week! 

If you have any questions about me, teaching, or style/fashion, please don't hesitate to email me: I love making new friends! :)

Fishbowl Fashion Guest Post

Happy Monday!! I hope all of you had a splendid Christmas and a wonderful weekend! As you may know, I am currently on vacation in Hawaii. I decided to use this as the perfect opportunity to introduce you to some amazing blogging babes. I chose some of my all time favorite ladies, whose blogs I know you will fall in love with! These ladies are amazing bloggers with incredible style and I am SO excited to share them with you! 

The first lovely blogger is Nichole of Fishbowl Fashion. Nichole made an appearance on Twenties Girl Style a few weeks ago when we teamed up for a Holiday Lookbook! Nichole and I met in college and became quick besties upon discovering that we had so much in common, including a huge love for fashion and the exact same birthday! Nichole's blog is filled with laid-back meets girly looks that are always so classic. I definitely get a lot of inspiration for my day to day outfits from this girl! Don't forget to stop by Fishbowl Fashion and say hello!

Hi there! My name is Nichole and I am the face behind the style blog, Fishbowl Fashion. I am so happy to be here today guest posting for Ashley. Ashley and I met in college and became fast friends. Not only is she the sweetest, but she actually inspired me to start my own blog! Anyway, onto today’s outfit.
I realized that I was in a monochromatic funk recently wearing neutrals on repeat. When I went on the hunt to find some color to add to my life, I found this sweater from J.Crew Factory. I love it and have already found endless ways to style it! It has quickly become a favorite staple of mine for this winter season. What are your winter favorites?
Thank you so much Ashley for having me! I hope you are having a the time of your life in Hawaii. You can check out more of my outfits here or follow me on instagram.
~Have a great day!~

Merry Christmas Eve! 
My end to 2014 has been pretty crazy. I've been MIA, but as promised yesterday, I will get you caught up!

A few weeks ago, I was having tonsil issues and was put on an antibiotic to clear things up. After 7 days of taking it, I had an allergic reaction and my WHOLE ENTIRE BODY broke out in huge, itchy hives. It was probably the least cute thing ever. Luckily, it faded from my face quicker than the rest of my body, so I only missed one day of work and was back by Friday. Friday night, as the rash finally started to fade, I came down with the flu. Oh the joys of working with children! I spent the weekend cooped up, laying in bed, feeling absolutely miserable. I was feeling slightly better on Monday, but just barely made it through the work day. Tuesday, I felt 90% back to normal, but spent my day at work curiously itching. By the time I got home, my entire body was covered with rash....AGAIN. Seriously, can the girl not catch a break?! I headed to the doctor where they told me my body was still reacting to the antibiotic. I was definitely a sight for sore eyes, with a major case of the polkadots...and I don't mean the trendy kind. Luckily, they all finally faded (currently praying they don't make a reappearance for the 3rd time...), and I got to spend the Friday before Christmas break with my very excited first graders, which was a super fun, exciting, sweet (and exhausting!) experience! 

But, the absolutely insane two weeks I just had was completely worth it, because this weekend something EXTRA special happened....

I'M ENGAGED!!!!!!!!

After almost 8 years together, E and I are getting married! I am over the moon excited to get to spend forever with my very best friend, and am still slightly in shock. The proposal was perfect and I can't wait to share it with you! This is definitely a Christmas to remember!

#WIWT Fancy Feet

 Sweater: Forever 21
Shoes: c/o Keds x Kate Spade in Rosegold (I need the gold version now!)
Sunnies: Anthropologie - similar

I am a HUGE fan of Keds! Therefore, when these beauties landed on my front door step, I put them on and now I never want to take them off! There is something just so perfect about a sweet, sparkly pair of sneakers, and this is truly the most perfect time of year for them too! I definitely am dying to get them in gold now! 
This is my version of laid-back holiday style. A cozy sweater, jeans and the perfect pair of shoes, that spread a little extra holiday cheer!
