Inspired Outfit; Stripes and Leopard

Today I’m inspired by another blogger whose post last night made me go first “Wow” and then “Hey, I could do that!”!  XOXOTrina posted an outfit combining Leopard and Stripes that I thought was just adorable.  While I could have mimicked it exactly, I chose to make a couple of small changes.

  1. Trina chose leggings and boots, but the stripped top I am wearing isn’t really long enough for me to be comfortable in leggings.  Therefore I replaced those with black jeans and flats.
  2. My scarf is a different style.  I like the scale of the print on hers better but you work with what you have.
  3. I pulled out a short sleeve sweater that, looking at it now, appears to have been a mistake.  I thought it would be cute, but I like hers better.

Still, I think this looks very put together and just unique enough.

  • Striped Shirt: J.Jill
  • Black Jeans: Coldwater Creek
  • Black Cardigan: J.Jill no longer available in that color
  • Scarf: Boutique across the street
  • Josef Seibel flats: Ebay
And it would appear that I REALLY need to do my roots in the next day or so….
