The Outfit Chain + Giveaway

Something fun has been happening this week on Instagram and I wanted to share it on the blog since you may not be following all of the participants there to see it happen. It all started last Wednesday when I interviewed Tatiana. I decided to share an outfit inspired by her on Instagram that same day.  Well over the last week, a few other people have followed suit and we've created a little outfit chain:

Starting on the top left and going clockwise the outfit passed from @tatisbonilla to @ontheDailyX (that's me) to @skye815 to @carylee07 to @ie4style to @kathyljwilliams. It's a great outfit formula so if you decide to try it and keep the chain going make sure to tag us so we can see!

Five of us in the collage above used our Portofino Shirts from Express to create this look. We're wearing several different color variations but right now Radiant Rose is probably the most similar to these. And if history is any indication, they should go on super sale any day now for Memorial Day. Fingers crossed!

And what do you know! After I put this post together I saw that @erinerinhartman posted her version to keep the chain going so I had I had to share it here too:
(Erin used the Mixed Fabric Tee from Express for her outfit!)
