If you’re anything like us, the following scenario is all too common: You and your best friend set a date to get brunch, grab drinks, or go shopping, and you show up wearing almost the exact same outfit. It makes sense—you spend a lot of time together, and who better to take style cues from than the person you share your deepest, darkest secrets with? Kaitlynn Carter (right) of Western Wild and Jill Wallace (left) of Little Black Boots know this all too well. The BFF bloggers bonded over their love for fashion, and they often find themselves eyeing the same pieces—especially when it comes to accessories.
Carter, who describes her style as “casual and comfortable with an eclectic twist,” tells us she admires Wallace for her effortless getups. “She just always looks so cool,” the Western Wild blogger says of Wallace. So, we decided to turn to the pair for the insider intel on how they're styling their current jewelry brand on repeat, Hearts On Fire.
Keep reading for their go-to pieces from the fall collection and how to style them, ahead.
Carter and Wallace first met on a blogger trip. The weeklong event in Park City, Utah, featured food, snow-tubing, ’90s karaoke, and impromptu dance parties. “It’s kind of hard not to bond in that scenario,” says Carter, who started her blog in 2013 after moving to California. The two quickly became friends, and before they knew it, they were swapping career tips and style advice. Carter’s biggest style lesson she’s learned from Wallace? “The way she wears jewelry—she does it in a way that works in real life,” Carter told us. For fall, Wallace likes pairing a delicate triangle necklace with a deep-V neckline.
The admiration is mutual, says Wallace, who founded Little Black Boots back in 2011. Wallace says friendships with other bloggers have been instrumental in developing her career: “It’s amazing to meet talented, hard-working women like Kaitlynn. And she's shown me that a little goes a long way, especially with jewelry—it really can take [an outfit] from ordinary to crazy extraordinary.” Case in point: the way Carter’s diamond hoops add interest to a basic white tee and black overalls.
