Love the hunter green next to the brown boots.  I've had this photo pinned for a long time, so when I saw these hunter green skinnies on sale for $22 I couldn't wait to have them!  Probably not something I'll wear very often, but a very fun color to add to my growing collection.

Street Cred

 Jacket: J. Crew Schoolboy Blazer, Pants: Banana Republic, Necklace: Sequin-NYC Anita, Top: Ann Taylor

Inspiration: Pinterest

One of my students proclaimed that I must have killed a bear to get this necklace.  I think I earned some major street-cred today.  Do you know how hard it is to kill a bear?  A gold bear at that?

J. Crew Crazy

Sweater: J. Crew, Blouse: Banana Republic, Skirt: J. Crew Double-Serge Pencil Skirt, Shoes: Talbots, Necklace: Anthropologie Bloomshine Necklace

Inspiration Photo: Mix & Match Fashion

I feel like I hijacked a J. Crew mannequin in this outfit, but I guess that's not a bad thing.  I scored this cardigan on sale plus 30% off, and am loving the rich blue color.  Can't wait to pair it with other colorful skirts in my closet.

Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery


 Sweater: J. Crew Tippi, Shirt: Ann Taylor Chambray Camp Shirt, Necklace: Kate Spade via eBay, Jeans: J. Crew Matchstick, Shoes: Nine West

So this outfit was a loose recreation of a few outfits I had been crushing on through Pinterest.  I loved the color combination of the first - I really liked the pairing of a casual grey sweater with a fancy-schmancy necklace.  I was also loving the way the necklace looked in the second photo paired with a crew neck sweater and chambray shirt underneath.  

So here is my creation - voila!

A Few of My Favorite Things

 Sweater: J. Crew Tippi, Skirt: J. Crew Double Serge Pencil Skirt, Necklace: J. Crew, Shoes: Talbots
Inspiration Photo: Tory Burch

I love the color mustard, and I love camel.  This skirt and this sweater are probably two of my most worn pieces in my wardrobe, but I never thought of putting them together until I got this picture in my email from Tory Burch.  Loving the result!

Effortless

Leopard Top: Forever 21, Bubble Necklace: J. Crew via eBay, Skirt: J. Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Festival Blue, Shoes: Ecco


I fell in love with this photo when I saw it recreated on J's Everyday Fashion.   I realized I had all of the pieces to make it work, and swapped polka dots for leopard print (I think that's a pretty even trade, right?).  

Several people asked me through the day how I got my outfit to match so well.  I pretended it wasn't because I spend hours on Pinterest hunting down and planning outfits.  No...because of the first rule of fashion is to never let them know how much work you put into working effortless....
