Today marks the 1st edition of the Best Form of Flattery!!!The Best Form of Flattery series is all about finding inspiration from a variety of sources. Today's inspiration photo came from J. Crew's Fall lookbook. Here's what I came up with:
|Button down - hand-me-down from Mom|
Theory sweater - FC ($18)
Vintage leather skirt - FC ($12)
Vintage Dex boots - FC ($24)
Vintage clutch - FC ($10)
Wrap bracelet; Vintage watch-bracelet; Thrift cuff; Belt from shorts
I took the inspiration to layer a button down (buttoned all the way up) under a slim-fitting sweater, and adorn both arms with "wrist candy" from this J. Crew look:
About my outfit: I, like many of you, absolutely adore today's inspiration look. I'm just crazy about her pants (mental addition to the wishlist) but since I don't have any similar, I found inspiration in the layers. You all know how much I am loving the button-down-layered-sweater trend, well I had never buttoned it all the way up until now and I am pleased with the result! I usually wear bracelets only on one wrist, but after being inspired by this look, I added my watch-bracelet to the empty wrist. I wore my new leather skirt as a contrast to the prim-and-proper upper half and finished the look off with my favorite new boots in a similar color to the inspiration photo's pants. The belt (stolen from shorts) ties the unique color combination of lavender and brick-red together. Later in the day, I lost the sweater and the outfit was still very cute, BF actually loved it, and we usually have completely opposite tastes :)
