"TWEED" All About It



Sometimes people will ask how I come up with outfits, and usually there's no easy answer. I spend a lot of time browsing pinterest, reading other awesome fashion blogs, admiring photos in magazines, shopping, etc., so often times, the outfit is a big conglomeration of different things I've seen. However, today's outfit was directly inspired by a February post by Emerald over at Sunday Crossbow via pinterest. Her's was one of the first blogs I discovered when I was learning how to use pinterest, and I love it. I visit every day- she is SO cute, SO quirky, and SO creative in her mixing and matching.









Here's the outfit and a link to the original post! Super chic and cute, right! Tons of patterns and fabrics. I mean it's not every day one would think to mix jeans, tweed, sailor stripes and floral together, but she does it and makes it look so stylish and polished and hip!


















Now as you can guess, nearly everything (skinnies, striped boat top and scarf) came from Old Navy- they really need to start paying me!! The shoes are from Target. The jacket is thrifted, but it's a Wal-Mart brand!



































I feel like this outfit would have made Emerald proud! I am so looking forward to this
Halloween-filled weekend! I left all my school work at school, so I am just going to relax and have fun!

Wow! What an effortlessly chic outfit! Like you, I've been seeing so many cool fashions on Pinterest, as well as a lot of blogging Outfits of the Day, and it's encouraged me to step out of the fashion rut I was in. You look fabulous!

Do stop by and say hello...
