a pair of fives

good morning! today is so fun for me because i have the privilege of sharing 5 ways to style a blazer over at the looking glass.

in honor of that, i thought i’d share 5 reasons that i am a huge fan of lissa’s!

  1. lissa often posts something i need to hear. she talks about things that matter in a humorous and candid way.
  2. she is on a year long fast from buying clothing. (we may be crazy, but we can be crazy together!)
  3. lissa’s grandma taught her the same poem my parents made my brother and me recite when we were angry. (and repeat until we had a good attitude. ha!)
  4. lissa is honest and she speaks truth!
  5. she has leopard pants. seriously, how much cooler can one get?

lissa, you are truly beautiful inside and out. thanks so much for having me today, sweet lady!

ps stop by tomorrow for a great post by none other than lissa on 10 affordable wardrobe staples!

    You look so cute! Where is that blouse from? I couldn’t tell from your picture if it was swapped or mydeco?

    I am so impressed with your commitment to not buy clothes! I am trying to do the same thing – though only for a few months. I kind of love it and hate it at the same time :)

    • Caitlin September 19, 2012 at 5:14 PM

      Thank you, Ashley! It’s swapped. It was originally from J. Crew (via a goodwill, I heard!) The sweater was from NY & Co.

      That’s awesome! I hear you- it’s definitely a love-hate relationship :)
