Birthday celebrations are one of my favorite things in real life and online, so today I'm doing some early celebrating for one of my favorite blogger friends, Rachelle! Besides being a thoughtful, savvy, and level-headed friend, she's also a constant source of outfit ideas for me. We have a lot of the same pieces (from Express, of course), and even though she dresses mostly for the office and I dress mostly casual, I always get outfit styling ideas from her just by changing a few details (if needed) to suit my lifestyle.

Last year I shared four Rachelle-inspired outfits in this post, and this year I added a couple of new interpretations to the list. Most of my items are "old" by blog standards and no longer available, so I'll only be linking to current pieces below:

She wore: Burgundy tee, green pendant, neutral cardigan

Aside from outfits, there are so many other individual Rachelle-inspired purchases, like my current favorite tassel necklace (see it on Rachelle and myself) or one of my recent Labor Day purchases. She's a must-follow for me on every platform from her blog, to Instagram to Snapchat (@pinksole_rach), so I hope you'll stop by and wish her a happy birthday this weekend!
