I took the inspiration to dress up a fairly casual outfit of jeans and an oversized sweater by pairing it with heels from this look of eightsmallmen:
About my outfit: I really love this look for a day when you just don't feel like getting dressed. It is an easy formula, it's comfortable, and yet the heels (or wedges as eightsmallmen demonstrates) take it up a notch to outfit-worthy material! I kept it in the same color family with the peach sweater and 70s burnt orange/tan-ish heels. The long necklace adds a focal point, but I wasn't afraid to throw on long earrings as well since the outfit is fairly simple.
The Best Form of Flattery: 1st edition J. Crew
Now, on to the good stuff! The Best Form of Flattery series is all about finding inspiration from a variety of sources. I previously demonstrated two designers (Ralph Lauren and J. Crew) and a celebrity edition, and now, a blogger edition.
The inspiration for this week is the reason I started this series...by popular demand, another J. Crew edition of what I like to call grandma chic:
So let's see what you can come up with and how you can be inspired by this! Remember, the Best Form of Flattery does not have to be an exact rendition of the picture (of course, it can be!) ... you can break down the outfit and be inspired by any piece of it, whether it be the button-down-layered-sweater or just the mustard shoes!
Here's how it works:
- I post a new inspiration picture every Sunday
- We have a week to come up with an inspired look
- Link your version up next Sunday and find out the new inspiration look for the following week
There are no rules! You don't have to follow me or even post about this series if you don't want to! I just love being inspired and would love to see what you all can come up with!
See you next week!!!
