Room-to-Outfit Collaboration with The Aestate

Happy day my most stylish friends!  
Today I'm proud to present to you a very special guest,
Jessica Rowe, author of The Aestate.  There's not a day Jessica
doesn't leave me drooling over images of fabulous interiors, as well as
her own personal selections for some of the most lovely elements for 
design.  The girl has got a killer sense of style, and a killer wit to suit.
For today's post, Jessica and I teamed up for a little room-to-outfit 
fashion interpretation.  She sent me three completely different images 
from which to choose.  I had such a hard time deciding.  We ultimately
went with the following imagine.  Be sure to check out Jessica 
and all her outrageous glory on The Aestate.
Pinterest Who?  I mean it.
Without further adieu...

Hi!  Jessica from The Aestate here.  I was so excited when Whitley 
invited me to do a room-to-outfit collaboration.  I love seeing how
fashion inspires decor and vice-versa, and I thought this space could be
translated into one killer outfit.  I totally admire Whitley's super-chic 
sense of style and cannot wait to see how she interprets this one!
