Hey everyone! I love being real and sharing my daily adventures with you in my IG stories, and recently yall have been replying to them and messaging me a lot about my friends’ outfits! What better way to show you their style than me going through their closets and styling some pieces?!

First up is Gigi from Just Gigi! She’s a Chicago blogger and current senior at Loyola University. Get to know her a little better:
Caitlin: How would you describe your personal style?
Gigi: My style is a mixture of chicness and statement pieces. I attribute this to living in Italy last year and traveling to fabulous fashion capitols like Paris and Milan. I am constantly stalking the sale racks of my favorite stores for stunning clothing and accessories.
What trend are you loving right now?
Oh that’s really difficult! But I would probably say tweed, and more specifically, tweed skirts.
What’s your favorite piece from your closet?
It’s a tie between two things I hardly get to wear: my leather 90s Moschino dress that I bought in Italy and my Gucci bag.
Advice for women developing their own personal style?
Take a look at the images you save or music you like and go from there. I rely on my Pinterest and Tumblr to tell me a lot about what I like and I evolve my own style from there. I’ve also found a lot of inspiration from travel, even if it’s just going on a road trip somewhere.
She’s so posh, right?! I love Gigi’s eclectic and classy style – she can pull off ANY Topshop look! I am nowhere near as European edgy in my style, so when rummaging her closet for this series, I knew I’d have to look for pieces that crossed over into the more girly and side!
I saw Gigi wore this sweater in an Instagram post and I knew I had to steal it for this series! It’s comfy and cute, including my favorite color pink without overly giving me spring vibes.
I totally copied her and also paired her blush beanie with it! I’m a sucker for the little fur pom pom beanies, and totally have them in three colors from J.Crew. May have to get this blush one too 😉
