I'm very excited to introduce a new series to PostGradChic. Fashionable Friends is a way to get some variety in sense of style into the blog. I realize that some of the things I wear and put together may not be for everyone. It could be aesthetically pleasing, but not something someone would personally want to put on, so I thought of bringing in some friends, who have a wonderful sense of style that may not be exactly the same as mine.
First up is my friend Kim. What I love about Kim's sense of style is that while it may be casual and comfy for the most part, she mixes textures, patterns, and colors like a pro to keep an otherwise simple outfit visually interesting. In her outfit below I love how the bold pattern of the sweater is showcased, and a skirt in a complimenting shade helps balance the rest of the outfit out. It's comfortable, cozy and put together at the same time. Another thing Kim is good at is thrifting. She manages to find some awesome things, like her sweater and bag below.
Sweater: Thrifted. Button up: Target. Skirt: American Apparel. Bag: Thrifted.
