That’s me being a copycat on the left, and my inspiration on the left (original pin here). As part of my second Pinterest Challenge, I picked two outfits that I wanted to try my hand at recreating, and this is the first one I’ve tackled. I had pretty much the exact pieces needed for this recreation: olive v-neck, white skinnies (though mine are cords), and brown boots. There’s even a rare appearance of my hair down and not in an updo of some sort! I know. I’m just going crazy over here. I will say, I think it was a LOT windier for my photo shoot than my inspiration’s. Every other picture I took had me making a face because of hair blowing in my eye or mouth. The trials of a style blogger. 🙂 Anyway, I think this copycat was pretty spot-on, and it was comfortable, so yay all around.
In other news, I think I can safely say my back is back to 100%. After our couples massage this past weekend, the remaining stiffness is gone, which is awesome. I can move like normal again! Also, I made leggings in my sewing class last night and those need to make an appearance on the blog soon.

What? A new actual outfit post?! Try not to be too shocked, even though I haven’t done one of these in a few weeks. I just wasn’t feeling it for awhile, but now I’m back! So, down to business. I have been on a serious olive kick lately (the color, not the food – though I do like eating olives, too). And it’s mostly because of these pants. Guys, I am in love with these pants. And they’re corduroy. I used to hate corduroy when I was younger (just ask my mom). But they fit great, are warm and comfy, […]
Cue dramatic lighting! Haha. I took these pictures pretty late in the day compared to when I normally shoot, and the light was all slanty and golden. Yes, I know – that’s why photographers call it the golden hour. I’ve just usually got something else on my plate at that time of day (literally or figuratively). Anyway, I like how they turned out. And I like this outfit. The cami is one of my favorites, and the skirt is so soft. Love them. This outfit almost didn’t happen, because when I put the skirt on (on Monday) I noticed that […]
This is what I’m wearing today. An easy summer outfit – cute tank or shirt, shorts, sandals or wedges, and a hat. It’s hard to tell in these pictures, but the front of the tank is lace, which I think adds a nice detail. Also, the more I wear this hat, the more I love it. I’m becoming a hat person – who knew? 🙂 Not much in the way of news since yesterday. Work as normal. Still printing up a storm in anticipation of next weekend’s craft party. Still trying to plan my outfits for the conference this weekend. […]
I’ve been getting more and more into patterns and prints. A few years ago, if you had looked in my closet, you would’ve seen mostly an unbroken line of solid colors. Now you’d find all sorts of stuff: polka dots, stripes, florals, geometrics (but not really any animal prints – not a huge fan of those). Even Aztec-inspired pieces like this tunic. It’s a bit reminiscent of an 80’s pattern, but I think just updated enough to avoid direct reference. I love it. It’s super comfortable, and the cream-and-faded-black combo pretty much goes with anything. I chose to pair it […]
That’s me being a copycat on the left, and my inspiration on the left (Anna from Mungolife). As part of the Pinterest Challenge, I picked two outfits that I wanted to try my hand at recreating, and this is the first one I tackled. You can see the original pin here. I substituted a big necklace instead of a big scarf, since I didn’t have a scarf that would fit this color scheme and would’ve sweltered in it anyway (it got up to 78 yesterday!). And obviously I had to put my own spin on it with specific item choices. […]
Not much to say today. I’m tired and work came piling in this morning. This post barely happened. That said, this was a pretty comfy outfit for working from home and running some errands. I like the olive & mustard combo, and I like these black boots. Good things all. How is your mid-week going?
