Styled By Emily: Oaxican dress and polka dots


Today’s outfit post is a bit different for two reasons: one, Emily styled what I’m wearing (and she’s wearing an outfit I styled for her, too — check it out!), and I styled my friend Sarah and bribed her to come take pictures with me. Okay, actually it wasn’t very hard to get Sarah to take pictures with me — we used to do photoshoots together all the time, and she’s been my model on several occasions.

Sarah and I have been friends for somewhere around 7-8 years; I don’t remember exactly when I met her, because it feels like I’ve known her forever. She’s one of my best friends, and I love that we kind of “grew up” together in the sense that we both went through a stage of maturing at the same time. Although we still have a very hard time being serious together, as you’ll see.


Since Emily chose to style me in this gorgeous Oaxican dress (you can see it in full here), I told Sarah to wear the other one I own so that we could “match” in a sense. I love having a friend who is always up for photoshoots with me and who I can style; it’s like playing dolls, only¬† with people! Ha!

I think Emily did a fantastic job styling me; I never would have thought to wear any of these items together, but especially  not this dress and skirt; I tend to go for fitted tops with full skirts, but I love the way the lines of the outfit work together, and I LOVE how the stark contrast of the skirt emphasizes the embroidery on the top!

If any other bloggers want to play stylist with me, I am totally up for it. I love going through and picking out outfits for other people, and having someone create an outfit for me was exciting, too!

Thank you Emily for styling me, and for making me see my closet in a few new ways! I might have to wear this dress as a top more often!

Happy Thursday!

    You guys are so adorable! The pictures of you two with Asa are absolutely precious. You look great and I love the head scarf with this. I am so jealous that you have TWO of these dresses! I had a couple this summer that sold immediately in my Etsy shop, and I am regretting not keeping one (even though I don’t think they would have fit me very well).
