As most of you might know, Helena and I are friends both on and offline. We originally met through blogging, but over the past couple years have become close and always have a blast hanging out together. We both happen to be working with Ann Taylor over the next several months so when they asked us to come in and spend an afternoon shopping their new collection together, we were of course super excited. An excuse to hang out and shop? Done. Right now, Ann Taylor has a promotion running called Trends with Benefits, which is focusing on lots of chic and colorful shorts, various shades of blue pieces and bold prints and patterns. We shopped the store but both ended up styling these white jeans, just in very different ways, which is the best part. Below are some photos from our afternoon – we had a blast! xo

This fitted dress caught my eye when I walked in but I decided I wanted to go with something a little brighter…
